Removing Buddhist Flag And DS Statue: Neither A Retraction Nor A Correction By GOSL, We Are Going Public – UNHRC

“We consider it deeply regrettable that government officials and other commentators continue what appears to be a coordinated campaign of disinformation in an attempt to discredit the High Commissioner or to distract from the core messages of her visit” says Rupert Colville , the Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

Denying the claims attributed to Secretary of Defence Gotabhaya Rajapaksa regarding the statue of Sri Lanka’s first Prime Minister from Independence Square, the spokesperson said; “The letter from OHCHR to the Sri Lankan Government requested an immediate retraction and public correction of this misinformation which has – not surprisingly – aroused much disquiet in Sri Lanka. Since neither a retraction nor a correction have been forthcoming, we are today making public what was said, and not said, about Independence Square during the visit.”

We publish below the statement in full;

Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights: Rupert Colville

Location: Geneva
Date: 20 September 2013

SRI LANKA

As you may recall, in the High Commissioner’s statement at the end of her mission to Sri Lanka on 31 August, she mentioned the unfortunate fact that at least three Government Ministers had joined in an extraordinary array of distortion and abuse during her visit. Unfortunately this practice has continued.

Navi Pillay

A week ago, on 12 September, OHCHR sent a formal complaint to the Government of Sri Lanka concerning the widely reported comments attributed to the Secretary of Defence that, during her meeting with President Mahinda Rajapaksa, the High Commissioner requested the removal of the statue of Sri Lanka’s first Prime Minister from Colombo’s Independence Square.

The letter from OHCHR to the Sri Lankan Government requested an immediate retraction and public correction of this misinformation which has – not surprisingly – aroused much disquiet in Sri Lanka.

Since neither a retraction nor a correction have been forthcoming, we are today making public what was said, and not said, about Independence Square during the visit.

Firstly, we categorically deny that the High Commissioner ever uttered a single word about the statue of Prime Minister D.S. Senanayake at any point during her visit to Sri Lanka, let alone asked the President to remove it. This claim is without a shred of truth.

Secondly, there has been a further distortion concerning comments the High Commissioner made to the President concerning a flag in Independence Square. The High Commissioner discussed with the President her concerns with rising inter-communal tensions and incitement to violence on the basis of religion in Sri Lanka. In this context, she asked why the only flag flying, other than the national flag, in such a symbolic location was that of one religious community, and suggested it might be more inclusive to fly only the national flag which is a symbol that unites the nation, no matter who they are or what religion they adhere to. At no time did she request any flag to be removed.

We consider it deeply regrettable that government officials and other commentators continue what appears to be a coordinated campaign of disinformation in an attempt to discredit the High Commissioner or to distract from the core messages of her visit.

The High Commissioner will be updating the Human Rights Council on her visit and progress on accountability and reconciliation in Sri Lanka on 25 September.

      Dear UNHRC Madam Navi Pillai,

      This is what happened when Hambanthota Gan Cabaraya “Villege Crocodile” Banda family who used to wear “AMUDE” eating “Aggala” and “Bulath Paiya” using buffalows to Plough Paddy and going around in Bullock carts did after coming to Colombo and stole our Parliament by Fraudulent means.

      The Hambanthota Gan Kabaraya Joker family whose whole lives are filled with Fraud,theft, lies, double talk, deceive, deception, cunningness, murder, thug, rape, Cheap show-off, double acting crooks, make one fight against the other,”Kotawanawa” who do not have a cent of Education, culture, Integrity, self respect,family upbringing, norms, self pride or Pride for the country.

      They will sell their soul for a bucket of Shit and that’s the level of standard they have among the Educated, Respected and honest community in Sri Lanka.

      That’s why the Gan Kabarayas always languishing with the Villege uneducated underprivilege community as they are their mentors.

      Madam Navi Pillai,
      Please do not categorize every Sri Lankans to this Villege Crocodile Family, as there are more Educated, Hones, Respected and deserving families live in Sri Lanka who are been deprived their status and positions by these crooks and their bunch of Parliament Goon thug Liars.

        Mahela,

        Absolute truth! We all decent and moderate citizens in Sri Lanka appeal to Mrs. Pillai to mediate on behalf of us at UN and bring in further resolutions and drastic measures to investigate and punish the war criminal Rajapakshas and to rescue us from the clutches of Rajapaksha despotism. Please mediate to win the rights of Tamil brothers too. We want their rights to be granted to them so that they too live in this country with equal rights as Sinhalese.

        I deeply regret Mahela’s comparison of Crocodile’s Jokers and Kabarayas to politicos from Humbugtota this unfortunate comparison greatly denigrate all three mentioned.In fact all three are more superior honourable and have very much higher standing. I can understand the frustration of Mahela to find a suitable comparison but as of now I am unable to find any thing worse for comparison.

      meanwhile in a parallel universe, the clown Ranil Wickranamesinghe instead of writing to Navi about a stupid statue should be asking what happened to Weliweriaya the inquiry and Report and who gave the orders, who is responsible for the killing of innocent civilians there? What happened to the Matale Mass Graves inquiry? etc.

      Ranil is collaborating with the Rajapassa regime to distract from the core problem that Sri Lanka needs a different political leadership both in the govt and Opposition and that the country needs to be DEMILITARIZED and Gota the WHITE VAN Goon needs to be tried in the Hague for War crimes, as well as in Sri Lanka for mass killing

RANIL WICKREMASINGHE DID BRING UP THE KILLINGS OF WELIWERIYA AND CONNECTED ISSUES AND COLLAPSE OF RULE OF LAW, GOVERNANCE AND WIDE RANGING THREATS TO DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION. SINCE THE REGIME IS NOT RECEPTIVE TO MANY ISSUES RAISED, HE WENT TO THE EXTENT OF SEEKING UNHCR ASSISTANCE TO REINSTATE AT LEAST THE PROVISIONS OF THE 17TH AMENDMENT TO ESTABLISH INDEPENDENT JUDICIAL, POLICE, PUBLIC SERVICE AND ELECTIONS COMMISSIONS SO THAT EVEN A SEMBLANCE OF DEMOCRACY CAN BE RESTORED, WHEN HE MET NAVI PILLAY. WITH EASILY GULLIBLE VOTERS AND DUDS ALWAYS FINDING RANIL A SCAPEGOAT, THIS REGIME IS PERPETUATED TO NO END !

      Like the criminal cad, Mervin Silva ( Merv the Perv), who told Pillai he would marry her, this is further harassment of the Heard of UNHRC, particularly because she is a women, and the barbaric Rajapassa regime hates women who are intelligent – just take a look at the confection called the “first Lady – Rajapassa!

      And guess what Ranil Wickramasinghe has joined in the harassement of women in governance – check out the paramilitary and army attack on the TNA PC candidate in Jaffna..

        “good they have no chance, as usual all Sinhala Buddhist modayas…”

        It is a well established fact that both Sinhalese Tamils are stupid. In your language Mokkan/Modaya.

        Assuming your Tamils were clever, how did you manage to miserably lose your war against the Sinhalese modayas?

        I am still finding it difficult to figure out as to how your Tamils ended up with VP and LTTE, assuming of course they were clever?

            “We should not insult any community: All communities contribute to civilization.”

            Could you tell us in what ways the Tamils and their brethren Sinhalese have contributed to civilisation, given their history of self destruction. Don’t you think these two people deserve to be insulted on a regular basis? As it stands, I believe I am the right one to do it.

            I do not hate these two people as they evoke pathos.

            Once a man who was in deep trouble prayed to god:

            “Oh god save me from myself I can take care of my enemies.”

            Even though he believed and sought guidance from god he knew where the fault line was.

          Native, I believe that, even cleverness has nothing to do with education ( as per your claim to wisdom)!?

          Sometimes people have no choices than facing the life, the way it comes to them.

          Pol Pot’s Cambodians, Kim’s North Koreans, Hitler’s Germans, Mussolini’s Italians and even His Imperial Majesty’s Japanese were war mongers. Of course that was not their choice of life. They were either persuaded or forced.

          When there was Tsunami, there has been zero looting and crimes in Japan and that was the choice of every individual in that country – a mirror of their real culture and nourishment of their education, but Tsunami victims – women and children were raped and properties were looted here in this wonderland of Asia. Even the raped were mercilessly killed by those perpetrators in muddy waters and….. now….it’s the order of the day. How do you look at it !!?
          Amongst Sri Lankan Tamils ,You have my Jaffna man almost in all the provinces of this country doing whole sale and retail business. How do you look at it !!?

          Now, let me address your doubt on VP and LTTE with regards to Tamils…….
          ‘’I am still finding it difficult to figure out as to how your Tamils ended up with VP and LTTE, assuming of course they were clever?’’
          Your assumption about their (Tamil’s) cleverness is the answer to your problem Vedda !
          First of all you have to bear in mind that Violence is in their Religion which is the yard stick of their culture. Social injustice and differences are their basement of life.Even VP in all his revolutions didn’t want to address it. Recently a senior lecturer of the department of Economics of the University of Jaffna ( I shall come out with his name at the right time) claimed that ‘’Dowry’’ is a capital to a bridegroom to begin his life !!? On the other hand imagine about a father who has five or six daughters !!? Don’t you think the Lecturer is clever enough to gain his portion like any LTTE Tax collectors of the last face of the war in the west – forgetting social justice !!?

          Well, When VP crossed all the ladders on his ways and became a formidable and unchallenged force in Tamil Politics, the Jaffna man has had no other choice than pretending that he loves VP. He shouted loudly along with VP that standardization of higher education was an injustice against Tamils, and the poor innocent Vanniyan and Easterners poured into LTTE in hundreds and thousands to strengthen VPs iron fist while not realizing that their children have the chance of entering into Universities because of Standardization.
          The Jaffna man prudently sent his children to North America, Australia and Europe using the war environment while the poor children of Vanni and the East die in the battle fields. Out of the 1.4 million Diaspora Tamils, more than 1.1 million is Jaffna Man.Do you agree that my Jaffna man is clever !?

          Native do you believe that they couldn’t stop the war in the Vanni !!? I am late to suggest that the final battle should have taken place in the Jaffna peninsula and do you still believe that they would have been playing the same card they played in the Vanni !!?
          Did you notice the speed they collected billions of £,$ and CHF and also the speed they all vanished and found their own houses ( which is a night mare to anyone in the west) and business ventures in their new locations after the war, while the contributors faced divorce in their family life and ended up in mental hospitals.

          Have you ever notice any of the VP’s big shots saying ‘’sorry’’ !!? Instead you see his close associates in his enemy’s camp blaming VP. Don’t you see here the cleverness of my Jaffna man !!? Even you can see pro LTTE TV stations in Europe and North America hosting the supporters of these liberators turned goons justifying their stands. Don’t you think Jaffna man is cleverer to anyone.

          Further to cover up their criminal faces they opened up a new venture called TGTE (Trans National Government of Tamil Ealam) run by those same goons. How do you look at it !!? Isn’t it a clever act.
          Didn’t you notice the prudent way my Jaffna man get rid of VP to put the blame on someone else to continue their business of politics successfully from burial grounds!!?

          You guys should learn it from my Jaffna man. Hardly I see only a man in the south who allows MaRa and his cronies to commit more stupid things. Even though his time looks surpassed, he seems believing in the paths of his uncle JRJ !!?

          Have you ever notice that people who address ”Karuna Amman” a traitor do not attribute the same to the Jaffna born KP !!? Why is it !!? Could you see the cleverness of My Jaffna man !!?

          My Jaffna man always matches his cleverness with Jews !!? Of course I have seen my Jaffna Man’s cleverness in credit Card theft in the west !! My Jaffna man Shall remain fostering social injustice and keeping split among themselves to run his business in a profitable way.

          Finally I have to mention my Jaffna man’s cleverness Vedda !!
          Now the talk of the town is CVW. The west’s approval is CV !!? …and the Jaffna man celebrates him overwhelmingly !!? But..You would see my Jaffna man’s cleverness in time to come.

          MaRa is not clever enough to give my Jaffna man the needed freedom for the west to taste the difference of how my Jaffna man treats his fellow Tamil minority (Religious) groups.

          Also it looks Gen.Chandrasiri has gained some cleverness by joining Douglas Devananda at the last minutes to publish a fake ”UTHAYAN” DAILY THIS MORNING to claim that Aananthy Ezhilan has joined Mara and the ”Tamil Arasu Katchi” boycots the election”…How is that !!?

            Rev:Devil

            Thanks for your lengthy and detailed comment.

            My observation of Jaffna man can be summarised as follows:

            Jaffna business man keeps three different sets of accounting books, one for his partners, one for Inland Revenue and the third one in his head.

            Two people went into partnership. One had capital and the other had experience. After few years of trading the one who had capital gained lot of experience and the one who had experience accumulated capital. It is tempting to say one them was from Jaffna. Guesss who is who.

            Next time when you go to the local shop check receipt/bill carefully, you don’t want to end up paying an amount which might include the date as well.

            I will respond to your comment later.

              Whatever said and done my Brother in Law’s family who are for Generations into Business, trade, distribution and manufacturing business always say that the Honest and trustworthy businessmen are the Tamils.

              My Brother in Law, his brothers, parents and uncles are all Businessmen in Nugegoda, Kotte, Nawala and Battaramulla areas and they deal with many traders.

              According to him Tamil traders are one of the honest businessmen.

              He also said many other sad incidents of some of our own and other communities way of doing business which I do not want to write here.

              What Tamils want is to have freedom of getting along with their lives and with their own freedom without interfering their affairs or robbing them.

              Let them mind their own Business and they will make Sri Lanka Asia’s miracle.

    “……. she asked why the only flag flying, other than the national flag, in such a symbolic location was that of one religious community, and suggested it might be more inclusive to fly only the national flag which is a symbol that unites the nation, no matter who they are or what religion they adhere to. At no time did she request any flag to be removed.”

    Well the meaning is the same. We know enough about the manipulation of english language to create differet connotations. If two flags were flying, and she wanted only one, then that means she has implied that the other one be removed (or not fly again, the following day or any other day afterwards. Sri Lankans are not an idiotic nation; they are quite sharp to figure out what it meant.

    She has been inciting communal disharmony, and sticking her finger where it should not have been.

      So flying a flag depicting only Buddhism ‘is not communal’ and implying it to be removed ‘is communal’. If you claim to be an expert in the english language, you could also conclude that the option to fly ‘flags’ of other religions is also available …… however other religions DO NOT HAVE FLAGS REPRESENTING THEIR RELIGION !!!

      mahasohon,

      First of all if it was not for the British, Sri Lanka could have still been ruled by South Indian Kings or under their administration(at least Central, Nothern and Eastern Provinces). It was the British who united Sri Lanka under one flag and that flag is the Sri Lankan Lion Flag.

      When British Gave us Independence, they asked all three communities (Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim) if to keep Sri Lanka as one country or to divide it on Racial lines, but all three leaders agreed to keep Sri Lanka as one country as they had faith in DS Senanayake who gave them their proper status, liberty, justice and freedom.

      All the problems started after Banda came into power( who manupulated Buddhists to come into power and then supressed other communities)

      Also Banda got his piece of Pie from the same Buddhist monks who showed him exist strategy.

      Now Rajapakses are playing the same card Banda played, but at a higher level.

      Pretty soon Rajapakses will follow SWRD Banda’s path.

      Blind cannot lead Blind. This is the reality of life.

        The issue in question is not why other flags are not flying but Pillay claiming she didn’t insist removal of buddhist flag while claiming she prefers only national flag flying at the same time. Her integrity is on the edge with such childish comments.

    What’s wrong with our chaps, I say? Let the UNHCR note other than the Rajapakse family – born conners – there are a whole lot of decent Lankan folks. Remember GR’s con of “zero civilian casualties” that he had to retract publicly with the whole world watching. The zero has no become 20,000. And now this.
    I say! it is time our jokers in the Govt learn this Pillay woman is no
    joke. She has huge support of those powerful countries that matter
    and can play merry hell with our lot. Are the Rajapakse brothers itching to spend the rest of their old age in a prison in The Hague???
    Its bad for Sri Lanka, I say. I should have burghered off Down Under
    long ago. Things are becoming rottener as the days pass by. Pity.

    Cheers!

    This is what CBK commented about here predecessors…

    “President Kumaratunga found the Rajapaksa family involvement in politics very distasteful and called them ‘uneducated and uncultured rascals.’ She worried that the political climate since her term had become “vindictive and threatening” and that Rajapaksa had ‘muddied the thinking’ of masses.”

    CBK was one of worse leaders we ever had. But Rajapakses making the CBK looks like legend when she make these statements. -:)

      “BUDDISHT ARE TERRORISTS, BUDDISHT FLAG MUST NOT BE FLOWN IN SRI LANKA AND TAMIL EELAM.”

      Buddhists are not terrorists.
      Sinhala/Buddhists are stupid.

      The flag was invented by Protestant White Aryan Buddhists,

      “THIS IS A RELIGIOUS FLAG. BUDDHA IS A TERRORIST.”

      In a way you are right, he used his teachings to destroy your ignorance. He lived about 2,500 years ago. He was the first and last Buddhists.

    Navi Pillai is saying Gota is lying and vise-versa from Gota. I guess you will never know isn’t it?

    Navi Pillai comes to Sri Lanka to “see for herself” evidence of war crimes “during last phase of the war”. She is deeply curious in last 6 days of something that ran for nearly 10,000 days. Ridiculous as it may sounds when she arrives she is enlightened with the details.

    Now that is over, she moves the goal post yet again to some cocomeme “authorotarioism” hoax which is not in her juristriction anyway. It looks like she it looking for something to whine about.

    what a fantastic letter, it says “she asked why the only flag flying, other than the national flag, in such a symbolic location was that of one religious community, and suggested it might be more inclusive to fly only the national flag which is a symbol that unites the nation, no matter who they are or what religion they adhere to. At no time did she request any flag to be removed”
    can somebody explain how to fly only the national flag without removing the existing buddhist flag?
    Dont make stupid statements, if what you wanted was to not fly a flag of a particular religion then tell it straight

      TeeJay,

      I hope you understand the common sense what Madam Navi Pillai said.

      She said why only one religious flag flying besides the National flag….

      What she ment was……aren’t there any other religions in Sri Lanka other than Buddhists and other Religious communities who represent them…..

      The message she gave was either GOSL install all the other religions flags along with the Buddhist falg…..or for goodness sake remove the Buddhist flag.

      These are where the breeding grounds of Racism worms begins and where the Politicians make hewaya of them.

      It’s time to unite the country on Racial and religion lines.

        It is not her job or concern. It is the job of the other religious leaders of this country to ask the gevernment to do that.I don’t recall they making any such a request,if they don’t mind,why she has to take on the dogs job.

    WE HEAR WHAT WE LIKE TO HEAR.

    I am sure in her next visit she will ask our great leaders to make English compulsory… and of-course it will be told in Sinhalese or else it will be told that Pillay asked English be made the official language instead of Sinhalese.

    Thank god, we have such great, brave leaders and followers like us.

    CT is envevouring to highlight the truths and distinquish them from utter lies our leaders unashamedly make not only to discredit their poilitical opponents here and abroad but also international leaders and show their true personalities. There is a saying that ‘habitual thief will be caught one day’. Our habitual killers and liers will be caught one day.

    Gota is making sure that he has self inflicted criminal evidence to convict him of crminality of all sorts. He will be caught one day and tried.

    Please refrain from inter communal attacks and generalising one community of despicable behaviour.

        Rama:

        NAVI is a wife of a Terrorist. She is a christian. FDutch-descendants of South AFrica she should still be a terrorist ?

        In India she should be a Dalit because she is Christian.

        Yes, she was fortunate to be a Judge under Mandela’s people.

        For us, she is Tamil, Christian – US wanted her in her present position because she had the qualifications that they want.

          hi jim softy, i nam not sure whether ms pillai is a christian or not. i believe she is a hindu. unlike sri lankan tamil names , south indian tamil names could include their castes as part of the surname. in sri lanka pillai doesn’t indicate caaste. however in south india pillai indicates the caste. believe it or not pillai is the best caste after the brahmins(pillai’s are respected even by brahmins) . majority of pillais are vegetarians and hence they call themselves ” saiva piilai” when they propose. the point i am making is that ms pillai is not a dalit unlike tamil nadu converts. people like amitaraj are dalits and hence the real dark complexion. in tamil nadu higher caste people have lighter complexion. majority of the pillais are light complexioned. to cut the long story short the talk about flag, statue etc. are a load of bollocks. these stories were invented, fabricated and manufactured by sinhala establishment to discredit ms pillai. after her retaliation everyting has gone quiet except a statement which said ravinatha (who is a waste of space) is dealing with it.

    We have talked it so many times.

    Christianity is a Pyramid Scheme. ALMIGHTY thinks that he is the greatest and he can control everybody. So, the believers of him.

    They never knew the principle of COEXISTENCE.

    The only thing they knew is that ALMIGHTY CAN EXPLOIT anyone below him and those below him can exploit anyone or anything that is below them..

    UN is working for part of the GLOBE and the interests of that part of the GLOBE and UN wants every one else to submit to them.

    NAVI PILLAI is a Just a CHRISTIAN working for the Western interests.
