Response To G.L. Peiris In Geneva: It Is Necessary The Truth Be Stated

Response of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to the statement made by the External Affairs Minister of Sri Lanka, Professor G.L. Peiris at the high level segment of the 25th session of the Human Rights Council on march 5th 2014 at Geneva

1. Accountability and Reconciliation are fundamental to the restoration of Permanent Peace with Dignity, Equality and Justice amongst the peoples of Sri Lanka.

2. It is necessary in this context to set the record correct in respect of some issues referred to in the above statement. A final acceptable political situation is imperative and fundamental to reconciliation. The minister in his statement refers to the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) and states that the persistent refusal of the TNA to participate in the process is a hindrance to any settlement. It is necessary that the truth be stated in regard to this matter.

2.1 Bilateral talks between the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) and the TNA in regard to the political solution commenced in January 2011, when the TNA outlined the contours of a political solution within the framework of a united, undivided Sri Lanka. A comprehensive written draft of these proposals was given to the GoSL delegation in February and March 2011.

2.2 The GoSL delegation undertook to respond in writing to these proposals, but over a period of seven meetings and five months did not do so. The GoSL has not responded up to date. In the circumstances the TNA informed the GoSL on 4thAugust 2011 that the date for the next round of talks could be fixed after the GoSL’s written response was available.

2.3 At the invitation of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, the TNA Leader met with the President on 2nd September 2011. It was agreed at the said meeting that all the formulations and documents that had emerged during various processes, after the enactment of the 13th Amendment would be brought into the negotiation process; that the bilateral talks would resume; that the consensus arrived at between the GoSL and the TNA at the bilateral talks would be taken before the PSC, which the Government proposed to set up.

2.4 The bilateral talks resumed on 16th September 2011, the agreement arrived at between the President and the TNA Leader as above stated was recorded in the minutes of that meeting.

2.5 The talks continued without much progress, talks were fixed for 17th, 18th and 19th January 2012, the GoSL delegation did not attend the talks on any of the said three dates. These were the circumstances in which the talks could not be continued.

2.6 Efforts were made to resume the bilateral talks in January 2012 and in May 2012. These are matters of record. The GoSL’s failure to respond as agreed hindered the recommencement of talks.

2.7 Meanwhile, Leaders of Alliance Partners of the GoSL of Cabinet Rank and also appointed by the Government to the Parliamentary Select Committee made public statements that the 13th Amendment to the Constitution must be repealed, that powers contained therein over Land and Police should be removed, that other important provisions should be removed or altered, and were insisting that the TNA should attend the PSC.

2.8 The Select Committee was to consist of 31 members, 19 from the GoSL and 12 from the opposition of whom the TNA would perhaps have 3 or 4. In this background there was no possibility of evolving a reasonable and acceptable political solution unless there was a reasonable consensus between the main party in Government – the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and the TNA. This is the background in which the TNA could not participate in the PSC. The PSC presently comprises only GoSL representatives. The TNA merely insisted that the agreement arrived at between the President and the Leader of the TNA be fulfilled.

2.9 It must also be stated that though the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission has called upon the Government to come up with its own proposals for a political solution, the Government has up to date failed to do so, raising strong misgivings about the GoSL’s sincere commitment to an acceptable political solution.

3. In the light of the above, the minister’s explanation in regard to the non evolution of an acceptable political solution is tendentious and not in accord with the true position.

4. Accountability and the Truth being ascertained are fundamental to reconciliation. The murder of five students on the beachfront at Trincomalee in January 2006 and 17 Aid Workers of the ACF at Muttur in August 2006 are amongst the most egregious of the grave violations committed. The minister in the course of his statement refers to various steps that are being taken in regard to those two crimes more than seven years later. It is necessary to refer to matters that happened earlier. A Commission appointed by the President was entrusted with the responsibility of investigating these two among several other grave violations. An International Independent Group of Eminent Persons (IIGEP) was appointed to oversee the working of the Commission and to ensure that the investigations were carried out in keeping with international norms and standards. Amongst the early steps proposed by the IIGEP was that evidence before the Commission on behalf of the victims in these two cases should not be led by the Attorney General or his representative, as he was also engaged in defending the Government and its forces on human rights violations before the Human Rights Council and other fora; that consequently there was a clear conflict of interest; and that there should be a Witness and Victim Protection Law to ensure that witnesses were given due protection. With the Government’s fullest support the proposal relating to conflict of interest was disregarded, and the Attorney General or his representative continued to lead evidence; a Victims and Witnesses Protection Bill was brought to Parliament, the second reading debate was taken up, but the Bill was thereafter abandoned. Consequently, witnesses who were being intimidated fled the country. The IIGEP had helped to record the evidence of witnesses who had fled abroad through tele-conferencing. However, persons defending the accused made representations to the Government against the recording of evidence through tele-conferencing. Thereafter, as a result of the Government’s intervention, the recording of evidence through tele-conferencing was terminated.

5. The IIGEP withdrew its role in Sri Lanka and publicly stated that the GoSL did not have the political will or commitment to investigate grave violations of human rights in keeping with international norms and standards.

6. The Commission nevertheless submitted a report to the President. The report has not been made public. In this background, there is little chance for the truth to ever be ascertained in regard to these two horrible crimes. The ACF, after a long wait and after an investigation, recently released their own report concluding that the killing of the seventeen aid workers was carried out by the Armed Forces.

7. In regard to the killing of a large number of Tamil civilians in the final stages of the war, the ascertainment of the truth would largely depend on how many of the persons inside the conflict zone during the final stages have been accounted for. This cannot be ascertained through a census done throughout the whole country. The GoSL claimed that there were around 60,000 persons in the conflict zone. The reality is believed to be that there were upwards of 350,000 persons in the conflict zone. Around 290,000 persons came out. The truth needs to be ascertained by the issue being addressed directly instead of attempting to obfuscate the issue.

8. An Army Board of inquiry and its findings can hardly inculcate any credibility. There surely cannot be any independence when the Army is the judge in its own cause. Obduracy on the part of the GoSL can only justify the accusation of impunity, and if in breach of its commitments and obligations must entail the inevitable consequences. Past experience and the conduct of the GoSL clearly indicate that there cannot be an independent, credible domestic process.

9. Land issues are of critical importance and are again fundamental to reconciliation. The TNA is firmly of the view that the GoSL with the support of the Armed Forces is aggressively engaged in a programme to alter the demographic composition of the Northern and Eastern provinces, predominantly Tamil-speaking and to changing the linguistic and cultural identity of these areas. These matters have been raised in Parliament and with the Government on numerous occasions but the programme continues. Substantial extents of land held by the Army during the war continue to be held by the Army; it is correct that some lands have been released. However, nearly 100,000 people are still languishing in camps, welfare centres and with host families due to their lands not being released. In Valikamam in the North and in Sampur in the East, contrary to commitments made by the Government to the Supreme Court, and in Parliament, substantial extents of land are still held by the Army. New lands have been occupied by the Army after the end of the war; and displaced Tamil civilians are unable to return to lands for residence or livelihood, as the lands are occupied by the members of the Armed Forces or the majority community. Lands are sought to be taken over for the propagation of the religion of the majority, even in areas where persons of the majority community do not reside. It is absolutely essential that these land issues are resolved in a just and equitable manner. The failure to resolve these issues is bound to lead to further ill will and acrimony.

10. Attacks on places of religious worship and cultural importance of minority peoples have been a continuing phenomenon and the offenders act with impunity and in the belief that the arm of the law will never reach them. Inaction on the part of the Government and law enforcement authorities has given them this confidence.

11. The involvement of Armed Forces in civilian activities is best illustrated by the reports of both the international and domestic monitors in regard to the conduct of the Armed Forces during the holding of the Northern Provincial Council Elections. The overweening presence of the Armed Forces is a source of immense discomfort and harassment to the civilian population. A proclamation under Section 12 of the Public Security Ordinance continues to be made each month by the President calling out the Armed Forces to maintain law and order in every single district of the country.

12. The abolition of the Constitutional Council by the repeal of the 17th Amendment and the enactment of the 18th Amendment has deeply eroded the independence of the Judiciary, the Public services and the Police Services and all other civilian institutions, entrenching all power in the hands of an increasingly authoritarian Executive.

13. These developments do not portend well for the promotion and protection of human rights and the preservation of democracy in Sri Lanka.

    An excellent counter to GL Peiris’ inconsistent positions [For example his claim that they are using the Channel 4 videos to identify the culprits even as he told HRC that the videos were cooked up – imagine where the cases would go, if after the videos are declared as cooked up the same videos are used as evidence in court. It seems that eiris is laying the ground to file cases against the errant troops while ensuring that they are never convicted].

    A measure of how much freedom there is in Sri Lanka would be how many newspapers publish this statement from Mr. Sampanthan to inform the Sinhalese public on the reality in the North.

        Aiyo Burt, for ‘GLP’ and ‘dignity’ (or synonym thereof) to form part of the same sentence is an oxymoron of gargantuan proportions!

        That man never had any dignity, right from his formative years, and thence through his making a career of switching sides and forsaking any principles he had, to remain in ‘power’ like the depath naya he truly is!

        Similar to the one MR was running 20 years ago.

      Mr Sampanthan,

      ‘Response To G.L. Peiris In Geneva: It Is Necessary The Truth Be Stated’

      ” Accountability and Reconciliation are fundamental to the restoration of Permanent Peace with Dignity, Equality and Justice amongst the peoples of Sri Lanka”

      The Sinhala Monk Mahanama Buddhist do not want that, just like your buddies, LTTE. Where is the accountability of LTTE atrocities?

      It has to go both ways.

      No Double Standards please. Let’s hope the UNHRC will get it done, even though they just talk and talk and talk.

      It is about time Mr. Sambanthan should give details of what transpired in discussions with the government between Jan” 2011 to Jan’ 2012. What were the TNA proposals and what were the government’s response and counter-proposals? Should we not have the right to know, considering that it is March’2914 now. Was there an agreement on secrecy ? Should any such agreement be respected today, considering the public’s right to know and the current lock-jam? We have to know and there has to be a public debate on the subject. A public debate delayed, as it has been, is a solution denied! The people must be involved in finding a solution. To do so, they need to be appraised of the facts and fiction.

      Mr. Sambanthan, over to you?

    A carefully structured and composed Statement laying out facts to the country and the world of the Tamil position in the so called search
    for National Reconciliation, if there is a serious one at all. This Rajapakse propaganda the Govt is innocent and calls the TNA for talks to settle the issue is all bull. The widely held belief Truth will eventually triumph is coming to the fore. As to the learned Professor of Law, one must remind him of his oaths.

    I think the time has come for UN to bring both the Sri Lankan delegation and other delegations including TNA to a face off meeting with each other under UN observation and based on the discussions that take place at the meeting UN will be able to independently assess who is telling the truth or what is the truth. If this does not happen then both parties will independently present their views which is not challenged a the time the information is provided to the UN.

    Mr Sampanthan, BE CAUTIOUS,

    EPDP Douglas Devananda’s latest a good friend is your Ananthi Sasitharan.

    Ask Ananthi who sponsor her foreign trips?

    It is not a secret anymore.

    Wife of the man who was then in charge of LTTE political wing in Trincomalee is presently taking instructions from Douglas Devananda of EPDP.

    Douglas Devananda of EPDP gave her courage to call for a press conference against Suminthiran. SL government using Ananthi to break the TNA.

      Dont delay even a minute.

      Either have a proper investigation or send her out.

      The more you wait, there will be more problems in the TNA

      1 -Explain the public.
      2 – Ask for an explanation about her finance, foreign visits, airticket, accomodations, etc.
      3 – Verfyfie the people that she associating and contacting in foreign countries.
      4 – Ask for the right explanation why she called for a press conference about Sumithiran rathern than complaining you all.

      Mr Sampanthan, if you delay, it will be the end Tamil National Allaince – TNA

      Do check all new comers.

    Sampanthan didn’t have the backbone to stand up even for himself in parliament, let alone for the people who elected him. He only stood up to say the LTTE was the sole representative of the Tamils. This coward didn’t have the guts to criticize the LTTE when it was killing his own people, recruiting their children for cannon fodder. He didn’t speak out even when his colleagues in TULF were murdered by the Tigers. He didn’t open his dirty mouth when the LTTE denied Tamil people their right to vote in elections and even cut off their fingers for doing so. This man backstabbed Chandrika in parliament after promising her the previous night to support her package to solve the ethnic issue. So this rogue Sampanthan has no right today to talk about Geneva.

      I cannot disagree with your comments about Sampanthan. He claimed LTTE was the sole representative even after Prabhaharan was found guilty of murdering Rajiv G. I know though he did not have any affection for the monster Prabaharan – He said what he said out of fear.

      It is up to Sampanthan to say sorry and apologise to India for his blunders.

      Nevertheless, TNA is the only hope for the Tamils at present. Who else can look after the interests of the Tamils at present?

      OutRider:

      “This coward didn’t have the guts to criticize the LTTE when it was killing his own people, recruiting their children for cannon fodder.”

      As if you or your Sinhala brethren rushed to sacrifice yourselves to prevent the mass murder of more than 70,000 Sinhalese during the JVP uprising when your Sinhalese leader Premadasa wreaked havoc and piled up the numbers. To think of it, the number of the LTTE’s victims compared to the mass murders of their own race is paltry. This is not a justification for the LTTE’s own misdeeds but to this day you Sinhalese are a cheap shot actually. Has there been anyone with balls to take those responsible for the more than 70,000 murders to task? Instead of talking about Sampanthan’s rights, my wonder is whether you have the adrenalin or balls to pursue the horrific mass murder. Have you idiots noticed something? The Tamils are not resting until they get the justice for the atrocities committed on them by the Sinhalese. Doesn’t it occur to you that you Sinhalese are so greedy and selfish that you people only worry about your own bums and couldn’t care less what happened or happens to their own Sinhalese kith and kin. And you fools are talking about “rights”. What a tragedy?

    The majority of the people doesn’t want or like to believe what Mr Sampanthan says but only accept all the lies GoSL, GL Peiris, the rotten politicians of the ruling regime’s blabbers. Their hearts and minds are so poisoned and brainwashed by the racist elements on a regular basis in order to prevent any kind of reconciliation or solution taking effect. The reasons for this mentality is all about jealousy, indifference, religious fanaticism, racial intolerance and the complete break down of law and order. Nothing is progressing except crime, calamity and chaos.

    This is no response to GL Peiris! This is like making his diary public.
    This guy is talking about “accountability” and “reconciliation”. Can any one explain “accountability” to whom? and “reconciliations” with whom?

    He also state “A final acceptable political situation is imperative and fundamental to reconciliation”. First he has to answer my first two questions before going into “A final acceptable political situation”. By the way, what is an “acceptable political situation” for him? Why is he not clarifying these points to people of Sri Lanka? Why doesn’t he tell the UNHCR what he wants? without beating around the bush? He is talking big about 5 students dead in Trinco. Why is he not talking about over 70,000 Tamils and Sinhalese killed by the LTTE? Who is taking the responsibility, truth and reconciliation for that? Why is he talking about the ACF aid workers. All aid workers were asked to leave and given ample time to do so. These “French aid workers” who were Tamils (not French), decided to stay on. If I was a soldier, knowing suicide missions of Tamil terrorists, I wouldn’t hesitate to attack who ever unexpectedly across my path in the battle field.

      You the guys are trying to make black as white will have no chance this time.

      Almost everyone is becoming clear to this day, that Rajapskshe adminstration failed to tackle the question with HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION raised by previous UN resolutions. His arrogance has driven us to a garbage bin to this day. If the man has some wisdom, he could have appointed transparent committees within the time given. Always sending his kind rhetoric thinking that IC are euqally cheatable as had been the case with gaping, vulnerable rural community which make the 70% of island population.

      Searching proper solutions for the nation´s question has been undermined by his overwelmed folly, thinking that only his ability leberated the country from LTTE terror. As truth covers it, the war had been waging for a period of 30 years, each and every president made all efforts to bring solutions – but not harming civlian causualties until MR started it going radically not respecting all moral and ethical values, comparably to the manner of an amok runner started to slaughter his animals without following any orders.
      So the consequences are seen today – entire world has become our adversaries. Still going on with usual rhetorics as he cant see beyond his capacities. This is the dillemal situation that country has reached to this day.

        Anpu,
        I am talking about Sampathnathan’s end of war accusations. You are talking about what happened recently? We really don’t know who did this if it really happened. I am skeptical because there are a lot of ant-DFSL entities operating in the north. Anybody can wear uniforms and abduct to hold DFSL accountable, specially when the UNHRC sessions are on. Look how many reports, movies, and documentaries mushroomed since beginning of March. With time will know who did if it really happened.

      You southern yakko brains will remain always the same.
      Accountability is required for the world order. Sovereignty is not a visa for governments to kill their own citizens indiscriminately specially in this case when the issue concerns a minority population. Such an act can be termed genocide and state terrorism. In simple terms, a husband cannot kill his wife and children and tell the police that this is his legal wife and own children thus he has the right to kill them and is not accountable to anyone nor the police. In SL there is credible proof that indiscriminate killing and genocide had happened and thus a further independent transparent investigation is required to make the government accountable for such criminality. To whom? The GOSL is a signatory to the UN charter, thus they are accountable to the world for this criminality. Of course, the Sinhalese do not want an investigation for obvious reasons as the results are obvious and the utter shame this is going to bring on this race. Reconciliation comes after the realization of accountability for which the GOSL is not allowing space. Reconciliation is not about building roads nor the Yal Devi train service to Jaffna. It is about understanding the human nature of the conflict and criminality perpetrated by a state on her own minority citizens since independence. Dont blame anyone for the creation of the LTTE. The LTTE is result of repeated harassment, criminality, looting, discrimination of innocent Tamils by a majority Sinhalese. The 1956, 1958, 1977, 1983 riots speak volumes of how ordinary Sinhalese ganged up with an equally supportive Sinhalese government where Tamil homes, businesses were looted and innocent Tamils were killed, maimed, threatened and bludgeoned. It was heroism for the Sinhalese to loot and kill Tamils where even students from leading Buddhist schools such as Ananda and Nalanda College participated in the name of patriotism. All this happened under State patronage where the police just glibly watched. Not one Sinhalese was arrested or faced criminal action by law. I use the word ordinary Sinhalese because virtually all who were involved in this butchery were ordinary Sinhalese neighbors and friends showing their barbarity towards an innocent minority population. Today the Tamils living abroad and known as the diaspora creating havoc on this nation are all Tamils who escaped this mayhem, thus the making of the diaspora is also due to the barbarity of the Sinhalese.
      “Final acceptable solution” stated by Sampanthan is already with the President. This is a document on which a negotiation can be based. Alternatively, the President also can subject a document where both documents can be used for the basis of negotiation. Clearly in Sampanthans “diary” the President is a sham and has negated and avoided this activity. If you mean to say that TNA and Sampanthan are terrorists and thus should not be negotiated, go tell that to the public of the northern areas who have elected them with a huge majority. If you mean to say that the northern minority who elected them are all terrorists, then go read my first paragraph where Sinhalese terrorism on innocent Tamil civilians is a historical fact.
      It needs also to be mentioned that the Jaffna Tamils are an indigenous race of Sri Lanka with historical roots to the northern areas of this country unlike the Malays, burgers, Indian Tamils who have clear migratory roots elsewhere. Thus the Sinhalese need to respect this which they have not done and have not been educated specifically by their religious and political leaders who are equally criminal. Today the racism and criminality of the Sinhalese is a well-known fact thus bringing shame to this race internationally.
      You southern yakko brains will remain always the same.
      Accountability is required for the world order. Sovereignty is not a visa for governments to kill their own citizens indiscriminately specially in this case when the issue concerns a minority population. Such an act can be termed genocide and state terrorism. In simple terms, a husband cannot kill his wife and children and tell the police that this is his legal wife and own children thus he has the right to kill them and is not accountable to anyone nor the police. In SL there is credible proof that indiscriminate killing and genocide had happened and thus a further independent transparent investigation is required to make the government accountable for such criminality. To whom? The GOSL is a signatory to the UN charter, thus they are accountable to the world for this criminality. Of course, the Sinhalese do not want an investigation for obvious reasons as the results are obvious and the utter shame this is going to bring on this race. Reconciliation comes after the realization of accountability for which the GOSL is not allowing space. Reconciliation is not about building roads nor the Yal Devi train service to Jaffna. It is about understanding the human nature of the conflict and criminality perpetrated by a state on her own minority citizens since independence. Dont blame anyone for the creation of the LTTE. The LTTE is result of repeated harassment, criminality, looting, discrimination of innocent Tamils by a majority Sinhalese. The 1956, 1958, 1977, 1983 riots speak volumes of how ordinary Sinhalese ganged up with an equally supportive Sinhalese government where Tamil homes, businesses were looted and innocent Tamils were killed, maimed, threatened and bludgeoned. It was heroism for the Sinhalese to loot and kill Tamils where even students from leading Buddhist schools such as Ananda and Nalanda College participated in the name of patriotism. All this happened under State patronage where the police just glibly watched. Not one Sinhalese was arrested or faced criminal action by law. I use the word ordinary Sinhalese because virtually all who were involved in this butchery were ordinary Sinhalese neighbors and friends showing their barbarity towards an innocent minority population. Today the Tamils living abroad and known as the diaspora creating havoc on this nation are all Tamils who escaped this mayhem, thus the making of the diaspora is also due to the barbarity of the Sinhalese.
      “Final acceptable solution” stated by Sampanthan is already with the President. This is a document on which a negotiation can be based. Alternatively, the President also can subject a document where both documents can be used for the basis of negotiation. Clearly in Sampanthans “diary” the President is a sham and has negated and avoided this activity. If you mean to say that TNA and Sampanthan are terrorists and thus should not be negotiated, go tell that to the public of the northern areas who have elected them with a huge majority. If you mean to say that the northern minority who elected them are all terrorists, then go read my first paragraph where Sinhalese terrorism on innocent Tamil civilians is a historical fact.

    “Accountability and Reconciliation are fundamental to the restoration of Permanent Peace with Dignity, Equality and Justice amongst the peoples of Sri Lanka”.

    -Sammanthan has no moral right to talk about peace in Srilanka.If S is genuinely interested in peace and the welfare of the Tamil people ,he should have accepted the Indo-Srllankan accord and acted with foresight, strengthened the accord and saved the people .By the time the accord was signed,the number of Tiger cadres killed were around 650 and civilians would be around 4000.How many civilians have been killed now?Had Sammanthan accepted the accord then,thousands of lives could have been saved.It is true I-S accord didn’t fulfill the aspirations of the Tamil people.Yes,it is true.When we are engaged in negotiation, we wont get all what we demand,but we have to start with something.What has happened now?Sammanthan who refused to contest the provincial council election when north and east remained merged,now contesting when they are demerged and after thousands of innocent civilians being killed.(I-SL accord 1.4,Also recognizing that the Northern and Eastern provinces have been areas of historical habitation of Srilankan tamil speaking peoples,who have at all times hitherto lived together in this territory with other ethnic groups)
    -What happened to Chandrika’s proposal in August 2000?Did Sammanthan support such an excellent proposal?In the seventies Sammanthans branded their political opponents as traitors.By not supporting Chandrika’s proposal Sammanthan has proved that he is the REAL TRAITOR.

    “ A final acceptable political situation is imperative and fundamental to reconciliation”


    The race psychology is very deep among the People.Anyone who is genuinely interested in reconciliation should work hard to lure the people away from deep rooted racial ideology propagated by the political leaders and others over the years.Can anyone say that Sammanthan is doing that?Genuine answer to this question is hundred times ,no.But he has also succumbed to this racial ideology.He is also under the twin influences of the diaspora and TN politicians.Besides ,the strength of the TNA is this racial psychology.Can any right thinking person expect one of the TNA stalwarts to do that?
    It is unfortunate that many Srilankans especially Sinhalese do not know the past or the present of what the TNA leaders and its precursors have been doing or saying. The Tamil leaders promoted violence and created militant movements for their political ends. During the 1970’s TULF did not allow the opponents to operate in the Tamil areas. Many of their political opponents were not allowed to have “natural death” at the instigation of Tamil leaders.. Such was the political climate “Gandian “ bequeathed to the Tamil youth.

    -.You pretend that you are a peace angel.Sammanthan’s past records show S and his party members were also complicit in the war crimes.

      “By not supporting Chandrika’s”

      Vicious hyena you proved yourself as the classic `vatti amma` from the fishing industry.

      Have you ever tried to understand the meaning of race and ethnicity?? I doubt it.

      You are just another stupid leftist because you have nothing else to lean on.
      It is the left leaning parties of Ceylon and Lanka that caused all this bloodshed. Right down from the days of NM where most educated Tamils of North and East thought it was fashionable to be left ended up being hijacked.

      You are distorting the record for hidden reasons of your own. Indeed, you are repeatedly saying ‘Sammanthan’ rather than ‘Sampanthan,’ which makes me wonder if you are even a Tamil that you pretend to be.

      The TULF was willing to work with the Indo-Lanka accord, but the LTTE wasn’t. VP killed Mahathaya saying the latter was pro-Indian/pro-RAW, without any clear evidence or transparency, and killed Amirthalingam simply because he didn’t want any Tamil leader who didn’t toe his line. Under those circumstances Sampanthan couldn’t have done anything.

      Suppose Sampanthan had agreed to CBK’s package; nothing serious would still have happened, because the LTTE stood there as a 1000-pound gorilla blocking everything, and the UNP and JVP were not supportive of the package either. So rather than simply support a non-starter package and earn the wrath of the LTTE, the TULF might have made a pragmatic decision to not support the CBK package openly.

      Many US Congressmen vote against bills they privately support after it becomes clear that their votes won’t be decisive in making the bill pass; that the bill would fail anyway, but leaving a voting record against the bill would keep the more militant among their supporters, e.g., the Tea Party or the Unions, quiet. That is the nature of politics.

      It doesn’t mean the TULF was faultless, but I would argue that their faults have been far less than those of other major SL parties (UPFA, UNP, JVP and LTTE).

      The TULF’s earlier willingness to give a chance to the toothless District Development Councils under JRJ despite the Vaddukoddai resolution, showed their pragmatism, but it earned them the wrath of the militants.

    A precise and revealing rebuttal of GLP’s presentation in Geneva, However, I remember the war-time GA in Mullaitivu had estimated that there were approximately 300,000 civilians trapped in the war zone. Where did Mr. Sambanthan get the 60,000 figure? This point needs clarification.

      Dr. Narendran,

      The GoSL, especially Fonseka and Gotabhaya, quoted at an earlier stage of the war, that there were only 70,000 people (my memory is 70,000 not 60,000, but that might be an oversight by Sampanthan) trapped in the Vanni. The GA’s estimates then were not accepted by the GoSL, and they said the GA was under duress by the LTTE.

      It was a major point that could be considered as the GoSL’s premeditation to commit mass crimes and then trivialize it by giving false numbers. It could also be argued that such a purposefully low estimate was intended to deprive the population of adequate food and medicine.

      I have repeatedly raised this issue on DBSJ’s blog, GV and CT, and argued that in rushing to defend the GoSL stats, and in denigrating many international aid groups and NGOs that had quoted the higher number close 330,000, Michael Roberts and Muthukrishna Sharvanandan were showing their true colors.

      Indeed, the GoSL was unprepared for such large numbers at Menik Farm, and when it became obvious that the discrepancy in their numbers was vast ( 70,000 vs 330,000), Gotabhaya was just silent and did not address that issue.

      Right from that time, Sumanthiran and the TNA took up that point as a major credibility issue for the GoSL, and I am glad the issue is still being kept alive by them.

      Narendran,

      Doctor:

      At the height of the war, the SL regime stuck to its position that only 70,000 (not 60,000) civilians were still under the LTTE control. Even Anandasangaree had weighed in on this and reiterated that according to his information there are about 300,000 and not the 70,000 as maintained by the regime. The GA’s estimate of the same number (about 300,000) was dismissed by the regime as one made under duress. Despite all the information available, the regime insisted on the 70,000. In fact, the regime insisted that it had RELIABLE INFORMATION that it was only 70,000. It was understood at that time that this was a deliberate move for two apparent reasons. One was to starve out the population of food and medicine. Essentially this was a blockade. The other sinister plan was to “take out” a large number of civilians over a period of time. All this changed due to the fear of the regime that possibly a new govt in Delhi (elections were on at that time in India) could stall the regime’s progress and thus the desperate need to conclude the war sooner.

    Dear Mr. Sampanthan:

    May I suggest that the TNA and the GoSL consider ahimsa and dharma principles of Hinduism and the dependent co-arising (paticca-samuppada) doctrine of Buddhism to bring about amity and harmony between the Sinhala and Tamil ethnic communities in Sri Lanka.

    If you try to resolve problems in Asia by applying Oriental wisdom rather than by applying Occidental thought, which brainwashed us to rely on the white man’s wisdom for more than 500 years, we will stand a better chance of peaceful co-existence.

    Let me call upon the so-called Buddhist rulers of Sri Lanka to adopt the Buddha’s dasarajadharma as their principles of good governance. Just forget about the jargon on human rights, press freedom, etc., that the West and its paid subsidiary, the UN , are using selectively to destabilize countries run by ‘pariahs’ they dislike.

    After committing itself to dasarajadharma rule,the GoSL should re-assess what kind of discrimination against minorities exist in Sri Lanka vis a vis the majority Sinhalese. It should not be afraid to ask the question whether Tamils are restricted from owning land and settling down in any part of the island and whether the country can afford to set apart a vast tract of land specifically for one ethnic group.

    The GoSL should declare its belief in the ti-lakkhana of existence: dukkha (suffering), anatta (no self) and anicca (impermanence). It should readily agree to dislodge rulers who behave as if they have everlasting souls and want to entrench themselves in power.

    Because all problems are points of various ongoing processes, apply the same ti-lakkhana to assess social conflicts. Existence is suffering. Therefore, social or ethnic problems (included in suffering) cannot be totally eliminated. they can only be alleviated. Both GoSL and TNA should thus strive to approach negotiation with this basic understanding. Both Tamil and Sinhala intransigence is the result of their false belief in self or ego. The Tamils seek to depend on external forces (the West, UN and the Diaspora plus Tamil Nadu) to maintain their false ego while the Sinhalese feel miffed. Both parties forget that no permanent solutions exist in a world where all conditioned things are impermanent.

    Sampanthan and the TNA must be more realistic: Don’t expect the GoSL to self-incriminate itself by proving it killed any more than 7,000 “terrorists” in the no-fly zone. Surely, the names of the missing or the dead must be known to the TNA by now. Collect these names and produce them before the general public rather than seeking international intervention. Follow the principles of dharma and ahimsa.

    The Sinhala Buddhists should study the mutual causality process embedded in the dependent co-arising doctrine to understand the causal links that lead to the karmic effects of tanha (craving) and upadana (clinging), from which the ethnic problem has arisen.

    This is just a brief outline of how Oriental “wisdom” could help us restore our ability to self-govern. Andaya’s sibling seem to rely too heavily on Western political science because he cannot think outside of his allegiance to Occidental “wisdom.” Despite his incorrigible bias, his suggestions also should receive GoSL and TNA’s attention at this late stage.

      “May I suggest that the TNA and the GoSL consider ahimsa and dharma”

      Fool, truth is the daughter of time not authority. The Authority is Hitler the muslim Rajapassa and familial.

      You must be dreaming in cuckoo land therefore think about Confucius and Tao (mountain and sea) Why not because in China Religion is separate from the State- period.
      However, unfortunately for you Lankians the island is still the Spice Colony where slaves were brought in from India and your exports are still geared to the occidental west. If you don’t have the occidental blessings you would become the cannibal. The occidental needs the approval of India where you were chained and brought in. Try telling an educated North Indian that you are a 2500 years old culture and they would laugh at you bestiality breed as happened to Nonis no penis on BBC.

    A well structured and relevant response to the lies and deceptions in Peiris’ statement. The devious conduct of the Rajapaksa regime has been well illustrated by Mr Sambandan with examples that demolishes Peiris’attempt to mislead the world community.

    300 Muslim worshippers, 200 Innocent mums, dads,infants, grand parents , hundreds of Bikkus,and many other innocents including students in Dehiwala, which is in fact next door to Vellala Wellawatta are not as important as the 5 students in Trinco and 17 NGOs in in Batticoloa.

    Finding the truth about who killed them, who supplied the weapons, who helped to smuggle them, and most importantly, who paid for the guns and explosives and paid wages of the killers are not important.

    Talking about changing the demography, by non Tamils living in Vellala North, hasn’t the demography changed in Colombo 6 , 7. and now changing rapidly in 3, 4, and 5 . with the well heeled Vellalas in the Diaspora moving in to Luxury pads in high risers?.

    Can the President sign off the LTTE proxy Sambandan’s list without showing in to the current Opposition Leader Mr Ranil, when the Govt can’t get even a free Casino and a new Harbour city for the inhabitants without UNP permission?.

    Did the LTTE Intelligent Chief Pottu Amman tell Sambandon that they were holding 350 thousand captives for him to be so sure that only 290 returned and over 60,000 vanished.?.

    BTW, It would have been really nice if Mr Sambandan attached a copy of his list of demands which he has given the President during many meets after Nanthikadal?.

    It would have enabled the great majority of the inhabitants to determine if this ” List” is good for them also with respect to their current freedom, peace, harmony, and little prosperity.

    I am talking about the battlers, not the Vellalas of both Sinhala Tamil communities.

      There are thousands of your inspirationists – the Vellalas – in the diaspora waiting to come and buy property. They are in the UK, E/U, North America, Malaysia and Australia if the Rajapakses take the right steps for reconciliation and give meaning to our legal process. Not just Cbo 6 and 7 but now more Cbo 13, 3 and 4. But this rollicking business of Tamils from the diaspora illegally detained at the airport and by the Police in the city – just to rob them on false premises of “you have LTTE connections” must stop. Also in the Stop list is the demand by the Defence Secy he must personally interview
      applicants for Dual Citizenship. Why? Isn’t there are a more decent way of making money? Why is he brining this high position to such a low level.

    So who did the census amid chaos of war to estimate “…that there were upwards of 350,000 persons in the conflict zone. Around 290,000 persons came out”. The number that came out is a fact. But no one can claim the number who was in the NFZ. This is a another attempt to justify the lofty number of civilian deaths being thrown around by the LTTE rump. Sampanthan is just repeating the lies.

      Was Sampanthan the LTTE leader at the time of all those killings took place?

      Did VP obtain authorisation from Sampanthan before carrying out those killings?

      I am curious did Sampanthan personally murder all those policemen in the East? This question should be aimed at Karuna who is the minister in this government. Has he owned up to those murders and apologized for his heinous crimes while loyally serving his leader VP?

      Think about it you might not find the right answer.

    I really don’t believe that the ideology and mindset of the Sri Lankan leaders have changed. Sinhalese and Tamils have dangerous leaders; I don’t see a peaceful Sri Lanka; it will get ugly. I have googled Ananthi Sasitharan’s name; the Wikipedia has more detail about her than the TNA leader Sampanthan. Why she is getting more attention? What’s her qualification? What’s her professional experience? She has the desire to talk about the Tamils’ struggles, but the question is does she have the knowledge to understand the foreign governments’ motives. The foolish Sinhalese leaders supported the 1983 riots, and pushed the Tamils to take arms. The Tamil foolish leaders took arms without thinking twice why Indians are giving arms even though India got independence through non-violence.

    The Sri Lankan media talks about the LTTE’s and the JVP’s crimes, but it has failed to talk about the foolish leaders who let those young people to choose that dangerous path in the first place. Does the media talk about the current leaders who carry on the same ideology and mindset? The dangerous ideology and mind-set have not changed among the leaders and editors who control the media. The opposition parties can’t defeat the Rajapaksa regime through the general election; because the Rajapaksa regime is too powerful. The opposition parties need India’s and the Western countries’ help to defeat the Rajapaksa regime. However, the Rajapaksa regime will play nationalism as soon as the opposition parties lean towards India and the Western Countries.

    There is a possibility for the Rajapaksa regime to win the general election to rule the country third time; however, it will face sanctions and travel restrictions. The Rajapaksa regime will damage the country more than the LTTE. Sri Lanka will become a little North Korea; nevertheless, the Rajapaksa regime can’t hold onto its power as the North Korean regime. The Rajapaksa regime can prolong its ability to rule Sri Lanka, but it can’t fool all the people all the time to keep its power forever. Eventually, the people will deliver justice for themselves by punishing the Rajapaksa regime to get rid of it. Meantime the country may be divided into two, and civil war will become a border battle.

    Remember, India created the LTTE; but the West hijacked it from India’s control. The West financially and morally supported the LTTE for thirty years to achieve its own interests. India will support the United States’ third resolution, but the West will hijack it for its own interests. The Sri Lankan and the Indian leaders do not have a real picture about the West. I have been living among the Westerners for the last twenty three years; and have been writing about their double standards since 1997. I live in hell and I know about the Western governments very well; much more than any other Asian leader or diplomat.

    Recently, the Chinese communist party has made a peace agreement with India, at the same time it is intruding India’s backyard through Sri Lanka. China won’t sit and watch; if India intrudes China’s backyard through Taiwan. The Chinese communist party is playing tricks on India, and pushing India towards the West. The Chinese communist party is also pushing Japan to take extreme steps to safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity. Recently, the Japanese Prime Minister has visited the war memorial to get support from the lefties, in order to counterattack the Chinese communist party’s aggressive moves towards Japan. The Chinese communist party leaders haven’t committed to work closely with their neighbouring countries, but playing tricks and placing the entire Asia at risk. Therefore, Asia Unites urges the Chinese communist party leaders to spell out their mysterious big dream. Asia Unites is committed to maintain peace and order in Asia; therefore, Asia Unites demands an explanation of China’s dangerous mysterious big dream in Asia.

    I really don’t think any of the Chinese leaders or Sri Lankan leaders really understands what is about to unfold in the Indian Ocean. The President Mahinda Rajapaksa is going behind China, and pushing India towards the West. India does not have a choice; it will support the West. It will get ugly, the real losers are Sri Lankans and other Asians. Remember those days; India felt threatened; therefore, created the LTTE to undermine Sri Lanka when President J R Jayawardene went behind the United States. Ultimately, Sri Lankans paid for it with the THIRTY Years of brutal civil war and losing more than 100,000 people. The West knows that Asia is getting bigger and powerful; therefore, the West is looking for an opportunity to break Asia. I know the West well more than any other Asian leader or diplomat. I am a victim of the West’s evil tricks due to my writings. It is impossible for me to have a job or family life. Indians know the West in detail. India was ruled and ripped off by the West for almost five hundred years. The Japanese know the West in depth through their sufferings and agony due to the atomic bombs. The Chinese communist party does not know the West; if it does, it would not go against India or Japan.

    Eventually, the Chinese communist party will get to know the West through its actions, but it will devastate the people of China, and other Asians in the region of Asia. Even if Chinese, Indians and Japanese joint together still they can’t defeat the West, because the West is so powerful. How the Chinese communist party is going to fight against the West, India and Japan? The Chinese communist party is the same as the Japanese emperor who decided to attack the pearl harbour without knowing the implications of his action. Eventually, the United States dropped two atomic bombs and made the Japanese to suffer and surrender unconditionally. The Japanese emperor made his people, Chinese, Koreans and other Asians to suffer. Likewise, the Chinese communist party will make its people and others to suffer in the region of Asia. The Chinese people who have been working hard to make the Chinese communist party rich will end up in nothing, because of the Chinese communist party’s actions. The Chinese communist party and the Sri Lankan leaders are playing a dangerous game in the Indian Ocean. The US and the UK will pass a resolution against Sri Lankan government at the UNHRC meeting next month. India will support it, in order to stop the Chinese influence in Sri Lanka. However, it will open up a foothold for the West in the Indian Ocean. Strategically speaking, it is a dangerous move for the Asians. The Chinese communist party and Sri Lankan leaders will betray the billions of Asians and undermine Asia. The ultimate losers are Sri Lankans, Chinese, and other Asians, but the winners are the Westerners.

    I really don’t believe that India is comfortable to get help from the West to deal with the Sri Lankan government; but India has no choice. I reluctantly approve India to go ahead and use the West to deal with the Rajapaksa regime. However, I am extremely concern about the future of the Indian Ocean. Remember, the West has been ruling the world for the last 700 years; its knowledge and power are beyond comprehension of the Asian leaders. The West had defeated Germany, Japan, and (almost) Russia as well. Therefore, we really can’t predict all of the West’s tricks in the future. We can only hope things will work-out better for Indians and Sri Lankans. If things get ugly in the Indian Ocean in the future; the Rajapaksa regime and the Chinese communist party must take responsibility. You all are well aware who pushed the LTTE to fight against the Indian Peace Keeping Forces, and financed the war to last for thirty years. The Rajapaksa regime and the Chinese communist party don’t even bother to consider the worst scenario in the Indian Ocean; but they are happy to gamble with the Asia’s future. China backs the Sri Lankan government in safeguarding national independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity. “We believe in the Sri Lankan people’s wisdom and capacity to handle their own affairs.” – Foreign Minister Wang Yi. China does not value India’s, Japan’s, and other South East Asian countries’ sovereignty and territorial integrity, but safeguarding national independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Sri Lanka. This is nothing but duplicity of the Chinese communist party.

    Sri Lankans have been fighting since the independence. The leaders didn’t learn anything from the brutal civil war. Sri Lanka is in a strategic location, but the leaders are not smart enough to handle it. Do I have any hope in the Rajapaksa regime? No I don’t; the situation will not get better. The Chinese communist party won’t sit and watch; if India intrudes China’s backyard through Taiwan. Therefore, the Chinese communist party must carefully reconsider its actions in the Indian Ocean; it should not push India to support the West. The Chinese communist party’s actions will open up a foothold for the West in the Indian Ocean, and place India and the entire region of Asia in danger. The Chinese communist party says it believes in Sri Lankans. But the truth is Sri Lankans have been fighting since the independence, the Rajapaksa regime has the least educated ministers in its cabinet in the history of Sri Lanka; it has killed more people than any other government in the history of Sri Lanka. The Rajapaksa regime is corrupted; the Rajapaksa family got huge commissions on the China’s development projects. The regime has increased drug trafficking in Sri Lanka and Asia. The Rajapaksa regime’s policies have increased the teenage pregnancy and sexual abuses against children. I can go-on forever about this regime. The reality is the Chinese communist party is pretending that the Rajapaksa regime is smart, but using the Rajapaksa regime for its dangerous moves in the Indian Ocean. The Chinese communist party isn’t going to influence the South Asia, or expand its wings in the South Asia by supporting the Rajapaksa regime. It will backfire on the Chinese communist party.

    The United States fought against the British, and it also tried to invade Canada twice. However, when the United States became a superpower it didn’t attack the British, or didn’t try to invade Canada. Even though it had all the capability to do so; because the United States understood that working closely with the other Western countries is the only way to prosper. If the United States attacked the British or invaded Canada it would have suffered a lot, and would have gone down long time ago. Likewise, China has to work closely with the other Asian countries; but the Chinese communist party has a different plan. I am extremely concern about the Chinese communist party’s mysterious big dream. I believe that the Chinese party’s mysterious big dream will create a disaster in Asia. While I was in Japan I spoke to many Japanese about China, most of them believe that China will attack Japan sooner or later. This is a fail policy of the Chinese communist party. The Chinese Communist party has failed to understand its role. If we want to have a powerful and vibrant Asia for the world’s majority; then we must have a strategy for the next 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 years. Things may not go our way; it does not mean we should not have a strategy. The way Asians are fighting among themselves is a clear indication that they have no long term strategy in place. India, China, Japan and Korea must collaborate very closely, in order to make Asia successful. Any attempt to undermine other Asian countries by Chinese, Indians, or Japanese will backfire on them, and undermine the entire region of Asia. If we are not careful, the history will repeat itself. A war between the Asian countries will undermine the whole region of Asia, especially between China and India or China and Japan.

    The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die; “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” The Five Eyes says to the world, surely you will have freedom and prosperity, but the Five Eyes has robbed almost the whole world and killed more than two hundred million people. The Americans, Canadians, Australians, and Kiwis don’t even live in their own countries. They all came from the United Kingdom. The British robbed most of the world and eliminated millions of people to have others’ resources. And proclaimed the sun never sets on the British Empire. Who is the master of Lies; the serpent or the Five Eyes? The Five Eyes member countries are the greatest deceivers of all time; they are extremely clever in occupying moral high ground to rule others. The Chinese communist party and the Rajapaksa regime are underestimating the deceivers who killed more than Adolf Hitler and robbed almost the entire world. Asia Unites believes that China’s success is vital for Asia’s success. Asia Unites has no hidden agenda to undermine China; however, we make sure that China does not intrude into India’s backyard, because it will trigger a war between China and India, and destabilise the region. We also make sure that no more war between China and Japan. Currently, Asia Unites is spending time to understand North and South Korea to unite those two countries in the future.

      Antany,

      You have made a few valid points about the US agenda going forward.

      But your babbling about silly allegations of corruption, drug smuggling and govt killing innocent people ,has sort of under valued your knowledge.

      It makes you look like another LTTE supporter who is hell bent on taking revenge on the current Govt for getting rid of his r Sun God.

      China is no push over,And never will be..

      India will never be a super power for obvious reasons.

      In the unlikely event they even show some resemblance to the power of China,as an independent there will be several separatist wars, with the first in Tamil Nadu which will succeed in quick time..

      India has no choice but be the lapdog of America.

      Unless a gutsy leader comes along and align it with China and Russia.

      Then they can become a reasonable layer , rather other than Bully boy who only can take on Srilanka.

    In my opinion as with the compound of Tamil Eelam ideology of Tamil state the political concept of a Tamil- nation state is also made by TNA to that several ideas which overlap one another.
    The Eealm of Tamil nation is based on common identity of Tamils people, who live in a many lands of territory including Tamil Nadu- Republic of India.
    TNA and LTTE are believed in different form of struggle to achieve Eelam State whether or not they share same language and same feeling that they are members of a Tamil nations community as world community. Proposed projects of Eelam need certain land some where near or closed to Tamil Nadu in India; that there are look for or discovered by 1948 since Federal Party of SVJ ,then Tamil United Liberation Front of TULF of Amrithaligam ,after TNA -with Sampathan to be established is an administration, legal. political entity that provide the infrastructures,of security and judicial basis for life for Tamil Racist state north part an Island.
    During rain of terror by LTTE so-called defector Eealm state run by GUN point by LTTE was never had been opposed by TNA. By and large War of terrorist-LTTE had totally undermine 30 odd years Sri Lankan democratic frame work, during that time; TNA of Samapathan has no claim inside or bring notice to Geneva Human right Council or World community any allegation against, LTTE the very reason is that which TNA and LTTE share similar aim of Established so-called Eealm Rough state in North Province in Sri Lanka.
    Both of TNA and LTTE concept are misleading world community, while the this kind of result Eelam state commonly think of LTTE and TNA by leadership of Samapathan.
    There is hidden agenda is nothing By TNA long-term perspectives is to split or disintegrated Republic Of India,that into several regional states including To be created NEW Tamil Nadu NATION STATE.
    This is great crime in world of politics and going to be imbalance entire emerging NEW WORLD ORDER will created catastrophe by TNA.
    TNA is playing such negative role to narrow end to established selfish Tamil state first step divided Sri lanka, that is why now TNA in UNHRC claim for International of ‘WAR CRIME’ AGINIST SOVERIGHNTY NATION OF PEOPLE OF SRI LANKA.
    Now TNA as his old partner LTTE are playing several game plan given by Big power politics and former colonial rulers that become real partner-agent of Foreign power vested interest OF SPLIT SRI LANKA.
    Its look like appear by TNA present leadership follow as previous of FP and TULF and LTTE leadership in new form collaboration with big power to surrender our nation Sovereignty Territorial Integrity, an Independence and valued democratic by name of ‘WAR CRIME and Human Right’ violation of end of LTTE war of Terrorism by gain narrow end of So-called Tamil state in North by TNA ongoing leadership.
    TNA adverse politics not for reconciliation Tamils in North or regain development of Tamils who suffer LTTE terrorism, that eventually carry to consequences of ‘WAR CRIMES’ the CORE interest of big power politics in Island.
    Ongoing politics of leadership Tamil IS locally and externally by TNA is insurmountable obstacle our SOVEREIGNTY AND DEVELOPMENT EVERY SPHERE OF LIFE OF INCLUDING TAMILS IN NORTH.
    Is sorry say the behavior TNA leadership having NO commitment and accountability to Nation Sovereignty Democracy and Unity as responsibility national political Party.

      “SOVEREIGNTY”

      Where did you acquire the taste for such luxuries?

      “DEVELOPMENT EVERY SPHERE OF LIFE OF INCLUDING TAMILS IN NORTH.”

      Any development should be based on bottom up and not top bottom approach. Who are the stakeholders in this development project?

      “Is sorry say the behavior TNA leadership having NO commitment and accountability to Nation Sovereignty Democracy and Unity as responsibility national political Party.”

      Could you spell out what exactly you expect from TNA?

      You would do well to revisit the post independence history of this island if you genuinely want to know how and by whom democracy has been eroded?

      You would have to be intellectually honest if you really want to find answers.

    Where was Sampanthan’s human right commotions when thousands of children were dragged to the death by the LTTE? Playing the mouth piece to the sun god?

    There is lot of blood in your hand too and do not think that the gods will be merciful to you when you go the other side. If you have a sense of humanity left, teach your people co-existence. Hatred bring more hatred. Problem with TNA is they communalise the human rights issue in Sri Lanka and no sinhalese ever support them.

      “Hatred bring more hatred.”

      Yes you are right your hatred and inhumanity to minorities over many years brought a bigger one in the form of LTTE.

      “Problem with TNA is they communalise the human rights issue in Sri Lanka and no sinhalese ever support them.”

      If the stupid Sinhala/Buddhists didn’t communalise politics, history, state. its institutions, ….. in this island there wouldn’t have been a LTTE nor would you have to deal with Sampanthan.

      Stupid Sinhala/Buddhists cannot see beyond their nose therefore does it matter whether they support TNA or Sampanthan?

      Stop being stupid and patronising.

    The Rajapakse regime wants TNA to appear before the ‘kangaroo court’ labelled Parliamentary Select Committee.
    The PSC is composed of laymen who represent only their electorates,and is not a “judicial” body.
    All know how the PSC “investigated” the Chief Justice.
    The TNA is correct in refusing the request.
