“Reconsider Reappointment Of Chandrasiri” Lawyers Tell Rajapaksa

A group of legal practitioners in Sri Lanka has called upon President Rajapaksa to reconsider his decision to re-appointment of Major General (Rtd.) G. A. Chandrasiri as the Northern Province Governor.

Lawyers for Democracy (LFD) issuing a media statement yesterday has urged the President to consider appointing a non-military person as the Governor, pointing out it is it an absolute necessity to appointment a civilian Governor in order to win the confidence of the people in the area.

Expressing their dismay at the re-appointment of Chandrasiri as the NP Governor, LFD Convener Lal Wijenayake has pointed out in his statement that the move is a ‘continuation of the military rule, from which people in the North are yearning for change.’

They have further criticized the appointment stating it has been made in complete disregard of the sensitivities of the Northern people and has now posed a further hurdle in the continuation of the reconciliation process in the country.

President Rajapaksa reappointed Chandrasiri as the NP Governor last week, despite repeated requests made by the TNA to appoint a civilian into the position following the end of Chandrasiri’s tenure.

Meanwhile, media reports have circulated that NP Chief Minister C. V. Wigneswaran might resign from his position in objection to Chandrasiri’s reappointment.

    CM is of the opinion (GTV Interview) that Chandrasiri s services are
    required, as an afterthought, to push MR Electioneering in Jaffna that will have to commence shortly?

    Alternate appointments will not be of use to a power-greedy man, and the wishes of the Tamils are secondary to an insensible idiot of a man.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa has only confirmed his own viciousness and vindictiveness by re-appointing this war criminal G.A. Chandrasiri who is hated by all the mainstream Tamil people in this country as the NPC governor. Neither Mahinda nor Chandrasiri will ever allow the NPC to function normally. This ex-army man will ride roughshod and trample on all the rights and the dignity of the Tamils in the North.

    Mahinda or Chandrasiri! are you both immortals? Soon will perish be under the soil 6 foot deep or turned into ashes. However, Chandrasiri to survive he needs immunity cover from war crime. Mahinda has provided few war criminals with this immunity shield by posting them to various countries as ambassadors. This appointment of chandrasiri by Mahinda is a collective punishment for Tamils, for helping him win his first term of presidency after paying the supremo many millions of rupees as cash to stop Tamils voting for Ranil. This money which he had confiscated/ robbed from the Tsunami donations given by various countries. This money was send to the then president. At that time Chandrika was in UK on her visit to her children for Christmas. Mahinda helped himself with this public-fund money by transferring to his personal account, his SC friend Sarath N de Silva got him out of the case for this robbery. How long are the people of Lanka going to be fooled to hold on to his relm?

    The Tamils do not need a Governor or a chief minister for that matter. The Tamils need a referendum to be held under the auspicious of the UN to decide for themselves as to their wishes if at all Sri Lanka is a democratic country. The peoples’ wishes have to be met.
