Relatives Have An Imprescriptible Right To The Truth About The Fate: ITJP

The International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) Sri Lanka, headed by South African rights activist Yasmin Sooka, has urged the government of Sri Lanka to undertake credible investigations into the forced disappearance of the more than a hundred people who disappeared while surrendering to the military on 18th May 2009 and to indict, prosecute and convict those responsible. “Families are entitled to the truth about the fate and whereabouts of loved ones.” ITJP said in statement.

 Issuing a statement last night the ITJP also called upon the government of Sri Lanka to become a signatory to the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearances. “We welcome the news that the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances is to be allowed to visit Sri Lanka and we urge the Government of Sri Lanka to cooperate fully with them and to allow unmitigated access to families of the disappeared ensuring that there will be no reprisals against them.” the ITJP said.

“The failure on the part of the authorities to carry out a proper investigation into their subsequent disappearance is a further injustice as well as a personal tragedy. Under the Joinet/Orentlicher Principles to Combat Impunity, families and relatives have an imprescriptible right to the truth about the fate and whereabouts of their loved ones. There is also a corresponding obligation on the part of the State to initiate investigations and hold those responsible for the disappearances accountable.” ITJP further said.

      SO How Many People on This List Of Terror dont have BLOOD OF INNOcencet’s on their hands??? How many

      And As we have seen in MAny cases during the past years and now every day emerging. we see these LTTE networks that came to operate during the war. The same Netwroks that are used for HUMAN Smugling. We all saw dead LTTE Members turning up Very Much alive and well in countires across Europe Mainly Norway and Canada and Also in south Africa.. we have seen In Tamil Nadu how these Former So called Dead have risen with different Names and Passports. MAybe YAsmin should start with the Criminla LTTE Int HUman smuggler netwroks FIRST. Even Jesus will be astonished by the Miracles of how the LTTE Dead HAs Risen with different names in different nations.. SOme Miracle or not

    What was Sooka doing when the LTTE terrorist suicide murdered over 100,000 civilians, both Tamil and Sinhales for over 30 years. Did she make a single statement against these ruthless murderers?

    Who made this list? who are these witnesses without identities? It appears that according to Sooka, every single Tamil who disappeared or killed was an innocent civilian!! So, I guess all LTTE terrorists survived this war!!

      So you accept the Government killed innocent people. Also you need to understand the difference between LTTE terrorist and Government. The government supposed to protect people and the government also behaved like LTTE terrorist.

        Terrorist wars kill civilians because you cant identify them from the terrorists. Tamils like you who support terrorism did not know that?

        @ JOE.. how do you know they were Innocent???? They were all part of the Notorious LTTE that DEath Cult. These People have Blood of Innocent Civilians on their HAnds.

        If the LTTE was Innocent as you say then the FBI would not class it as the Most Dangerous Terrorist Group in the world PRE 2009. That means its Members of this TERROR LIST are all People who DEAL DEATH TO INNOCENT CIVILIANS. And WHO KIlled their own TAMIL BROTHERS and SISTERS in the EAse and went after TAmil Politicians who later stared to oppose them.

        The only Innocent person in that list is the LTTE Leaders son. He was not put into the LTTE Child soldiers Brigade deviced by those people on that LIst of Terror..

        Just like the west those great Democracy and upholders of HR and the Home of these HR Groups. Their Policy is to Kill and Hunt Terrorist. We have seen HOw Obama Gloated the Killing of Osama, and Killing of Terrorist in Yemen, Pakistan, and else where.

        and Those are no different in any other nation.

        These terrorist on that Death List have the Blood of Innocent Civilians on their Hands.

        Anpu,
        Use your god given brain for once! I am not writing articles like Sooka for you to ask me “what were you doing”.
        I am not asking for investigations or revenge of anybody. If you used terrorism you face the consequences! That’s the end of it.

      “What was Sooka doing when the LTTE terrorist suicide murdered over 100,000 civilians, both Tamil and Sinhales for over 30 years.”

      What were you doing when when Hindians were training and arming the terrorists?

      What were you doing when Premadasa and his army were arming and funding the terrorists?

      What were you doing when MR funded the terrorists to rig the elections in 2005?

      What were you doing when armed forces and murder squads kept killing innocent civilians from 5th April 1971 to 8th January 2015?

      What were you doing when Southern terrorists killed innocent civilians in 1971 and between 1987 and 1991?

      What were you doing when Hindians invaded this island and killed innocent civilians?

      What were you doing when thugs killed, raped, looted and burned down properties from 1958 on wards?

      What were you doing when the Jaffna library was burnt down or since then?

        chola,
        That is what the elected gov. did. It protected 99% of the Sri Lankans (both non terrorist Tamils and Sinhalese) from these brutal suicide murdering terrorists, for ever. What international laws are you talking about with these cold blooded murderers?

          @ Eusense

          If you call freedom fighters as TERROISTS then they don’t have to obey for ann international law..but an elected government MUST respect international law OK?

          Rememmber Veera Puran Appu was labelled as terroist by British and killed by them ,..BUT you call this Appu a national hero….

          If you have guts go and stage a demonstration in front of Parliament to arrest the killers of 600 policemen ….but you can’t do because you are all COWARDS

            cholan,
            Your “freedom fighters” suicide murdered over 100,000 innocent civilians proving they are not freedom fighters but are plane old cold blooded TERRORIST!
            Ask your “freedom fighters” to wear a uniform, so that they can be eliminated sparing civilian deaths.

            Did Puran Appu suicide murdered innocent civilians?

      All LTTE Operatives. And As We all know MOst LTTE operatives have Excellent ROUtes of Human Smugglin to any part of the world. SO whay has YAsmin not Looked in Europe,CANADA, Australia???? We have seen in the past many socalled Dead LTTE criminals end up Very Much ALIVE and WELL in Nations such as Norway in Tamil Nadu, malaysia and Evene SOUTH AFRICA.. with False ID and would never give real details if fear of deportation.. SO Why has this Yasmin not looked in those nations, who not the possibility as the Dead seems to by Miracle rise up in Europe and else where with different names. Even Jesus would be stunned by the LTTE miracles to brind the dead back to life??

      From where did you get the figure of 100000 killed by LTTE? It is the terrorist Srilankan state responsible for more than 140,000 deaths of Tamil people.And people like you please do not shed crocodile tears for Tamils supposedly killed by LTTE.You were gloating when Tamil civilians were being mercilessly massacred by the barbaric Srilankan forces.

        The cardboard Sinhala patriot ex-Premadasa without shame …ordered these 600 Policmen to surrender to LTTE….

        When Premadas was killed Sinhala people in the south fired crackers and danced in the streets…Why?

      Please ask Karuna, Iniyabharathy and Pillaiyan? Do you know who they are? First was the former Deputy President of SLFP, the middle one was the Presidential Advisor who was bestowed with Deshamibanya and the latter was patronised by Mahinda to the Chief Minister position.

      How many Sinhalese are ready to oranise a demonstration ignoring gun shots ???

      How many Sinhalese are ready to go for fasting and die without taking a drop of water????

      If you know any one ask them to try one of the above and ask for justice for killing 600 policemen…

      But all you are COWARDS….you have not an ounce of guts…

    @Taraki, the LTTE bugger who gave the orders and carried them out was a government deputy minister in your master’s government by the name Karuna amman. Why don’t you catch that bugger and render some love to him with maybe a baseball bat or better yet hand him over to the families of these poor policemen. You buggers talk big but no action.

    Oh alright, forget the 600 cops and replace them with the innocent Sinhalese villagers whose throats were slit at night by your heroic Tigers…or the young monks who were executed en masse….or the passengers in the buses and trains that were stopped and killed in cold blood….

          You called tamils ponnayas

          I did not mean that you called names. It was a comment made with a broad brush.

          I think we ought to talk and argue without losing our sanity. We should do that to make sure future generations must not suffer because of our acts of omissions.

    A picture tells a thousand words.

    Really wondering what is wrong with someone who wants see the other fully or half naked. SB Dissanayake wants to see CBK running less saree, see what these brave soldiers want to see. Worse even, one of them take a photo and send other subjects to see how they trying bring half naked Gandhism. Quantum leap required to step on to the civilized world.

    This is a news item backed with photo evidence and report. You have something to say valid against it say it. Why do you have to resort to name-calling and use abusive language. You are not in the photo and you did not commit an act like that. So why fear and come out with nonsensical arguments? You don’t want to find a way to clear your name and think how to live amicably with the different ethnic people in this country?

    For the past few days, I observed the defense given out by people who claim to be patriotic. I am laughing my heart out of the absurd arguments. Are you guys for real?

    On another note, what do you feel when you see this photo? Says a lot right.
