Reject Dayan Jayatilleka’s Nomination: Civil Society Tells High Post Committee

94 Civil Society activists and 14 organisations have today urged Secretary to the High Post Committee to reject Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka’s nomination as the post of Ambassador to the Russian Federation.

We publish below the letter in full:

Secretary to the High Post Committee,

Parliament of Sri Lanka,

Sri Jayawardenapura, Kotte 

Representations on the Nomination of Dr. Jayatilleka as Ambassador to Russia

The following Sri Lankan civil society activists and organisations are deeply concerned by public reports indicating that the Government of Sri Lanka has proposed the name of Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka to the post of Ambassador to the Russian Federation. We write in response to the public notice dated 12 June 2018 issued by the Committee of the High Post of Parliament of Sri Lanka calling for representations regarding nominations including that of Dr. Jayatilleka. 

Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka

At the outset it must be noted that Sri Lanka has a rich history of diplomatic engagement with the international community and cultivated standing and respect among its allies across the globe including in multilateral forums such as the United Nations. With the escalation of violence in the early 1980s, the then United Nations Human Rights Commission, and subsequently the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) which replaced the Commission, discussed Sri Lanka’s human rights record where victim groups and civil society were able to make representations and successive governments of Sri Lanka engaged in constructive discussions. 

A marked shift in this stance was evident under the Rajapaksa regime when we experienced unprecedented levels of violence targeting civilians, civil society, media and other dissenting voices. It was during this period we witnessed a shift in Sri Lanka’s foreign policy. Dr. Jayatilleka who served as Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva at the time, took an aggressive and triumphalist line on the violence unfolding back home. For example, in 2009 a Special Session was called to discuss Sri Lanka and it was under his leadership we witnessed a hostile position taken and the deliberate targeting of those who held a different view to his own. Such a stance created divisions within the UNHRC and undermined Sri Lanka’s reputation of being able to diplomatically engage with the international community. The divisive line has had a lasting impression among missions and other entities in Geneva who remain dismayed by the negative impact the session had on the unity of the UNHRC and its impact on human rights globally. 

We also note that the line taken at the Special Session ultimately ran counter to Sri Lanka’s national interests. Professional diplomats have argued convincingly that the line espoused by Dr. Jayatilleka at the 2009 session, and triumphalism about his ability to ‘win’ a resolution congratulatory of Sri Lanka’s execution of the war, galvanised Geneva actors whose concerns had been cast aside by the Sri Lankan delegation. The 2009 Special Session debacle ultimately had a significant impact in convincing the international community including the members of the UNHRC that grave violations took place in Sri Lanka and that an independent international investigation was required. This hostile and triumphalist line was counter productive as it subsequently led to several resolutions being adopted by the UNHRC in 2012, 2013 and 2014. We also note that Dr. Jayatilleke who was subsequently appointed Ambassador to France was unable to prevent the French Government from voting against Sri Lanka in these resolutions, demonstrating his ineffectiveness as a head of mission. 

With the political change in 2015, we were relieved to see President Sirisena and the coalition government reverting to a more conciliatory tone where there was recognition of past abuses and the need for genuine reforms towards reconciliation. This was based on human rights being fundamentally a domestic issue, in recognition of the rights of all of Sri Lanka’s citizens rather than a game played with the international community. We were also heartened to see the Government of Sri Lanka rebuilding bridges with the international community and engaging in a constructive manner to further the interests of Sri Lanka, not the whims of particular individuals. This was also welcomed by the international community and in recognition invited President Sirisena to events such as the prestigious Group of Seven (G7) summit in Japan and Anti-Corruption Summit in the United Kingdom both in 2016.  

This hard work of rebuilding Sri Lanka’s image and reputation to be a truly democratic and plural country where all citizens are equal and a country that values its international standing can be damaged with the promotion of individuals who were not only apologists of the previous Government but also, to date, its most ardent champions. 

We note that Dr Jayatilleka’s ideology and the ideology that shaped the January 8 2015 movement for change are poles apart. Dr. Jayatilleka has denounced the very concept of Yahapalanaya and members of this administration. He has stood stoically against democratic reform and reconciliation initiatives, repeatedly attacking progressive ministers and leaders of the current Government for making concessions to victims of the war, as seen when privately owned land is released by the military or a permanent office to investigate thousands of cases of disappeared is established. Where we fear the violence perpetuated by the previous regime, Dr Jayatilleke openly extols the virtues of ex-President Mahinda Rajapaksa, and his ‘strong-man’ tactics. 

On both previous occasions when Dr. Jayatilleka was sent on diplomatic postings, to Geneva and Paris, he furthered a personal agenda which had detrimental consequences to Sri Lanka among its most important allies. If that was the case under the Rajapaksa administration, where Dr. Jayatilleka’s ideological inclinations found resonance, then the potential for damage to this current administration which seemingly does not align with his ethno-nationalist views will be significantly greater. 

It is in this context we question the nomination of Dr. Jayatilleka to a senior diplomatic post and urge the High Post Committee to reject the nomination. We also request President Sirisena, Prime Minister Wickremesinghe and the coalition government to acknowledge the work done since 2015 to rebuild Sri Lanka’s image and standing internationally and to nominate individuals who are able to best represent the reforms promised in 2015 and not those who deliberately seek to undermine them.

    Earlier it was LTTE tamils and Tamil protestants that Sinhala people cannot fight for Accountabiliity and honesty from the govt. Now, western Agent CIVIL society, NGOs, INGOs, Protestants and Wahabi muslims that hinder the development of sri lanka into a honest, trustworthy, accountable and transparent society. Because Scoundreals are getting paid for screwing up the world. these all are for money. I don’t think all these name are willing participatns because I knoow some talk different stories. The development means not the increase of a corrupt businesses who sells even the mother to foreign organizations or businesses. Moneh should be with lay people and not only with businesses and corrupt politicians.

              I think it’s the people actually living in Sri Lanka who are best qualified to comment as what goes on directly impacts on their lives.

              Those living overseas and screaming insults in these spaces are a waste of space, waste of everyone’s time and a disgrace to the concept behind this website. They offend the sensibilities of those who visit this website for intellectual discussion.

        This is serious.
        What special skills, knowledge or expertise can he bring to the Foreign Ministry where others can’t?
        Is he fluent in Russian?
        Is he a Naval expert who can assess the ship that Sirisena desperately wants to buy?
        Is he an expert on on Rail Road initiative?
        Is he capable of placing a wedge between Indo Ruso relation?
        What is he going to bring into Russia Sri Lanka relation?

      This looks like some kind of a game/deal. Both Yaha palanaya and Mahinda palanaya cannot be trusted. Dayan will do anything and everything (stoop to the lowest) if he is given a diplomatic post. The Rajapakshes know how to use this ‘educated’ fool and then throw him out like a used condom (they do not trust him). As far as Ranil is concerned, this ‘educated’ fool is not worth even to be a piece of dust on his toilet slippers. Looks like Sirisena is also trying to make use of this ‘educated’ fool to play some kind of a political game.

      The USA aptly described the UNHCR before it left. A Cesspool of political bias. No doubt they were then the leaders leading the smell. But they now called it for what it is. They same can be said of these highly paid individuals and the groups they represent. Dayan has every right to be appointed. Protesting against political bias in the cesspool should not disqualify him. He just proved what the USA did then and said today and left the UNHCR correct.

      Well, well, this sounds like rather a distraction from bigger issues, tho’ glad that SL-Colombo elite” civil society ” has woken from slumber to “do” some activism and fund-raise– from their US and eu donors!
      These folk never talk about economic rights and justice for ALL Sri Lankans – and rather play into the ethnic identity politics game that donors love to FUND, which distracts from political corruption, economic inequality, and the national Debt trap cause by “foreign aid” loans for Fake Development projects in Lanka!

      It would be good if this same group also wrote letters seeking impeachment of Bondscam Ranil and investigation of Avant Guard Scam by Gota-Hitler and all Rajapaksa cronies named in Panama Papers too and Sira’s cronies!

    What a shameless and stupid effort by a group of dollar-sponsored NGO kakkas fear that Sri Lanka will receive Russian support.

    My understanding was Thero fired from UNHRC. He quit from France. Is those correct, isn’t that record disqualifying him for the job?

    Further, the qualification New King was looking from Thero is if the butt is sponge padded so that he can practice kickboxing. Thero, the father-motherless orphan, qualifies on that condition. But he is not that efficient, if he open a Russian Vodka, in counting the notes in the garage before anybody showing up. Saliva doesn’t secrete fast enough to flip over all that paper in that quick. But his servitude is good so any rotten orders the New King can give him, Thero will explain because it is “center-middle up down in out under over left right neo archaic socialism” so a Smart Patriotic Social Democrat like him will do that to service the country.

    Once the junkyard ship deal is over, (done) Tamara will go to Moscow and will kick on Thero Butt. He will leap into the air, come and falls in Colombo.

    No surprises there. All the usual suspects are in the list.

Readers could then better understand the context of this request.

    The great and the unwashed have come out, joining hands to put paid to DJ’s ambitions.

    If there is one good reason for DJ to excuse himself, it is the fact that he riled long and hard against Yahapalana. But of course DJ has always been capable of turning when something suitable comes up.

    The thing is that these days there is no monitoring MP to give him a corrective slap.

    “… the line taken at the Special Session ultimately ran counter to Sri Lanka’s national interests. Professional diplomats have argued convincingly that the line espoused by Dr. Jayatilleka at the 2009 session, and triumphalism about his ability to ‘win’ a resolution congratulatory of Sri Lanka’s execution of the war, galvanised Geneva actors whose concerns had been cast aside…. had a significant impact in convincing the international community … that grave violations took place…and…international investigation was required. This …led to several resolutions being adopted by the UNHRC in 2012, 2013 and 2014. “
    Much of this is subjective.
    I do not know the exact role of DJ in the resolution designed to derail the one that the US wanted to get passed denouncing Sri Lanka.
    What do the petitioners recommend? Passively submit to US manipulation?
    DJ’s relations with Cuba perhaps helped. Knowing the US, its mischief had more to it than punishing the bad boy Rajapaksa. Cuba and Venezuela took the correct stand.
    DJ was resented in diplomatic circles. The analysis of ‘diplomatic circles’ ignores the fact that the West knew already that the killings (to which they were very much party) were too many. And the US calls the shots in the game of war crimes and HR offences, which it uses selectively to target certain countries.
    If incompetence is the criterion, the case could have been made more convincingly, but not forgetting that many serving diplomats should also be withdrawn if criteria were applied fairly and evenly.
    Also, DJ did not utter any worse ethno-nationalist sentiments than several other diplomats of his time. There is little difference that any such utterance can make in Russia of all places. The posting may even silence him a little on the media.

      Also, DJ did not utter any worse ethno-nationalist sentiments than several other diplomats of his time.

      Where and what counter t more than which diplomate were most racist. Further anybody, who wants to accept or reject of Thero’s achievements may first have to denounce o accept of what he claims as he did in Geneva. It was serious damage to Tamil Thero did in UNHRC 2009.

      Sadly you have no idea what Thero was doing in May, 2009 in Geneva. Saddest is you have no idea where America was in May, 2009. You may want to ask from Thero where was America on May 23rd, 2009. A commentator should restrict him/her before comment, by evaluating of how much he/she knows about the subject, instead of rushing to show much they hate Free Democratic countries.

      ” US wanted to get passed denouncing Sri Lanka.” This is absolutely a concocted line for which you have no back up. Period.

    Saravanamuttu who received millions from Norwegians during their peace process aka getting LTTE international support process has written against DayanJ. And all the NGO bunnies who rely on Norwegian Kroners and American dollars have written against Dayanj.

    We can see who is really against seeing Dayan getting this post. Yahapalana gang headed by that mentally retarded idiot co sponsored a resolution against Sri Lanka. And those who praised and whitewashed LTTE during war and actively worked against SL are now holding the power.
    I have never seen a country who has abdicated its self respect, sovereignty and right to defend itself and its territorial integrity like Sri Lanka under Yahapalana mess. That too after fighting a war for 30 years against all odds and winning it. Does rest of the people in this country know that it is a bunch of NGOs who is controlling the country today? Is that what all who voted for yahapalanaya wanted? If Sri Lanka is to progress as one country it needs to get rid of this NGO bunch controlled, financed by west and especially our enemy Norway!
