Sri Lanka Justice: Callum Macrae On The Leaked UN Document

Callum Macrae, director of No Fire Zone, on the leaked UN document that suggests UN officials have been working “behind the scenes” on a plan for a purely domestic inquiry into allegations of war crimes at the end of Sri Lanka’s civil war. The UN says it “supports accountability mechanisms that meet international standards”.

    What is the point? Didn’t this Tamil donkey get it the first time it was discussed?

    Over 5000 Tamil teachers went from house-to-house counting the dead and missing. The results and the methodology for gathering data was published.

    – From 3 districts 7000 dead in total.
    – Of this 5000 dead under war conditions.
    – The 5000 include LTTE dead.
    – Take away a reasonable number of LTTE casualties – lets say 4500 only 500 dead.

    TNA member of Parliament was stuck inside the no-fire-zone. He has released an affidavit that says he was witness to LTTE killing 500 Tamils trying to escape.

    There is accounting of the dead right here. Its very simple.

      Forgotten People – The Evicted and Displaced North Muslims of Sri Lanka (English)

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JV60McNQ9o

      Published on Jun 1, 2013

      The Evicted and Displaced North Muslims of Sri Lanka. The expulsion of the Muslims and other nations from the Northern province was an act of ethnic cleansing carried out by the Tamil militant Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) organization in October 1990. In order to achieve their goal of creating a mono ethnic Tamil state in the North Sri Lanka, the LTTE forcibly expelled the 72,000 strong Muslim population from the Northern Province.

        Callum Macrae and his CH4 productions

        1. The ONLY hospital available to the LTTE in PTK which was shown on CH4 did not have a SINGLE LTTE combatant casualty within or without, while a war was raging.

        Thus either the LTTE escaped any injury or death or the LTTE casualties were dressed up in Civilian clothes before filming the scene. The CH4 commentary was emphasising on the civilian injured.

        2. One of the “EXPERTS” used to authenticate CH4 Mr. Grant Fredericks was exposed as a Charlatan who did not have the expertise that he claimed he had. See the Canadian Braidwood Commission Report for details.

        3. The Macombe county medical examiner Dr. Daniel Spitz was another “expert” used to authenticate the CH4. This same Spitz tried to suppress evidence by failing to discover the FATAL bullet that was still inside the victims head. Unfortunately for Spitz the bullet was found during a second autopsy performed by another medical examiner.

        The videos below will show Dr Spitz’s stuttering to explain the perjury, under cross examination by defense counsel.

          Callum Macrae and Self confessed War Criminal Ms Adelle Balasingham

          Both Reside in the UK. How did Adelle manage to escape the inquisitive Eye of Callum Macrae, the crusader and CH4?

          No Video productions on the Life and Times of the Highest Ranking LTTE War Criminal alive? No call for her prosecution at the ICC?

          .
          Why are no Videos or photographs available on the alleged White Flag surrender? Pulidevan and Nadesan had to travel 3 km from their bunker to the the Wadduvakal Bridge, in broad daylight, on open terrain. Where were all the Camera Phones?

          There is a junction where the A35 meets several other roads on the southern side of the bridge. This is the most likely place for the alleged surrender to have taken place. It is 3 km from Pulidevan’s bunker to this junction. The road does not have any trees or obstructions and hence on a sunny day, a Satellite will have a very clear view from start to finish. The view I have provided, can be zoomed much more and has the ability to identify any vehicle.

          This is the road (A35) traveled by Nadesan and Pulidevan on their way to the alleged White Flag surrender, a distance of 3 km, There are no trees or bushes to cover their path, yet no Pictures, No Video’s and No Satellite coverage from either India or the West who posses Real Time, Satellite surveillance ability and a resolution surpassing that of the Google’s free service, which is not real time.

          We have a COMPLETE Black Out, from Ms Yasmin Sooka’s White-flags.org, Callum Macrae’s CH4, TGTE and the Chest Thumpers and most importantly the Witnesses themselves who kept their camera phones glued to their pockets, while “watching” all the goings on.

          Here are two examples of the detail seen on Google Earth. Vehicles are easily identifiable and there is no escape for the White Vans. People with a White Flag are easily identifiable as people even without a White Flag is easily discernible walking on London’s Oxford Circus. Western Govts and India possess higher resolution Real Time Coverage.

          This is New York. Note that the vehicles are clearly identifiable. The view of New York was given for the purpose of comparison.

                :D I have the intelligence to avoid engaging with you! If you want to flog a dead horse, you are welcome to it. One should have common sense above anything. The Channel 4 Documentaries are in public domain for number of years. I do not need do any research; the program has presented evidences and directly accused the then government individuals. The UN probe is contingent on evidences that Channel 4 presented on the program and those evidences that they presented directly to the UN! Many photographic and videographer evidences were deemed too gruesome to screen!

                You can write volumes but you will end up barking at the wrong tree. You need to get a grip and face the reality that GOSL under the watch of MR committed war crimes and crimes against humanity at biblical proportions. This is why no one from GOSL is prepared put their neck out to challenge the evidences. What you need to do is to Grow Up, and it is about time you do just that for goodness sake!

                  Dear Burning,

                  Why are you are making Foolish statements like “:D I have the intelligence to avoid engaging with you!” After doing so TWICE today, at 2:35 pm and 5:51 pm (previous and present comments)? Short on Memory and Logic but Long on Rhetoric I see. Ha ha haa!!!

                  It doesn’t matter how long the CH4 was in the Public domain. What matters is the Conspicuous Absence of LTTE Casualties within the ONLY Hospital available to the LTTE, in a War Zone while a war is raging.

                  It is a clear give away that the CH4 is Fabricated, a Stage managed Drama performed to deceive. But as fraudsters often do, they made a grave error, a slip that cannot be rectified now, by ANYONE, not even your Callum Macrae or Ms Yasmin Sooka or Marzuki Darusman or Steven Ratner.

                  You see burning, the ONLY way that you could win a debate is by using Facts and Logic. You will never succeed by using Rhetoric and Innuendo, as you are doing now (remember the time you claimed that former CJ Sarath Silva has become a Buddhist priest?)

                    I told you to grow up and you need to think about that for everyone’s sake on these forums. Failing this, you will have known Sinhala Buddhist chauvinists as your company. You need to decide whether you are comfortable with their company. Are you?

                      Dear Burning,

                      Literally?

                      You say “I meant not engaging with you on your rebuttal of the channel 4 documentary”

                      Why? what are you afraid of?

                      I pointed out that the PTK hospital shown on Channel 4 did not have LTTE casualties within it even though it was the ONLY hospital available to the LTTE.

                      The ONLY thing you had to do was to post a link to the CH4 and call the attention of the CT Readership to the relevant scene where you find LTTE casualties and ask them to see for themselves.

                      You could not do that because ALL the LTTE injured were dressed up in Civilian Cloths.

                      Instead of the Intellectual and honourable path you chose the route of a Rowdy and a Thug. You unloaded a whole heap of rubbish to mislead the reader.

                      Burning, when I write something I am able to prove it. Make sure when you decide to challenge them you have FACTS at your command to Prove me wrong.

                      I have no problem in accepting what you prove, with a Logical Argument using Verifiable Factual Data. I am not here to Win but to seek out the Truth and oppose Lying Propaganda. The CH4 is Lying Propaganda.

                      I will not allow Idiotic Rhetoric, Innuendo and adhominem attacks to drown out what I write.

                      I suppose it is nice to flatter yourself! The Channel 4 investigative team is very experienced in exposing atrocities around the world. Their legal team, the forensic team and the digital technicians are second to none. They have used the recordings of your own forces and the statements of eye witnesses, and corroborated the events according to the timelines. They have presented their case and it is in the public dominie.

                      What good is it for me to debate with you? There is no benefit at all. Evidently, there is no challenge whatsoever from GOSL past and present. Their sole aim is damage limitation! Here we have you blabbering with pedantic materials. I suggest you take a deep breath and say it to yourself that your Sinhala Buddhist King, MR under his watch committed crimes comparable to biblical proportions!

                      You are STILL AVOIDING that small matter, of the inexplicable, TOTAL absence of LTTE casualties, from the ONLY Hospital available to the LTTE, in the THICK of war, which was shown on CH4.

                      You can extol the virtues of CH4 till kingdom come but that small slip of dressing up the LTTE casualties in the PTK Hospital, in civilian clothes and presenting them as civilian injured, to the World has left an INDELIBLE BLOT on the CH4’s INTEGRITY, that ONLY FOOLS refuse to see.

            Off-the-boat, I recall Sinhala nationalist nuts trying to shoot down all the evidence back in 2011, but its so funny to see you still trying, despite the overwhelming bundles of evidence building up. The world has made up its own mind – Sri Lanka committed war crimes. The current discussion is about how to prosecute them. Sri Lanka’s own government acknowledges the need for investigations into war crime, as opposed to the past government which interestingly agreed with you – i.e. all the evidence was fabricated. When you are dumber than the government, you know you are in trouble.

            Please Note: “This is most likely where the surrender would have taken place”

            He then goes on to construct a vivd story of how the ‘white flag’ incident couldn’t have happened. Off-the-boat spends a lot of time conjuring up with this stuff .. I am guessing its not voluntary.

            I like the way it looks forensic, until you pull on the loose ends and then it completely unravels. Brilliant, hilarious, pathetic.

                Your entire thesis starts with ‘This is the most likely where the surrender would have taken place’ – i.e. you have no idea but you guess … you then build a convenient treatise around your guess – and that is meant to contradict the bundles of evidence coming forth.

                  Witness 2 watched the surrender from another vantage point. He was behind an earthen defensive embankment (about 2 metres high and 25-30 metres north of the bridge). Witness 2 says several white jeeps arrived and army officers got out of them. He says no gunshots were fired by the LTTE towards the army.

Using ‘bold’ and the word ‘idiot’ repeatedly simply demeans you and you look like a spoiled brat being churlish.

                    That said, let us look at the substance of what you say. You are attempting to pull a ‘google’ map of a location that has been described and from that you make the giant leap to say, if there was a massacre there we would have seen it on Google earth? Thats your reasoning for why the ‘white flag’ incident didn’t happen right?

          Off-the-boat, pastes this little para into every comment string on CT. Same issues as always off-the-boat
          i) Even if you are right and the hospital did have LTTE cadres, killing anyone injured in a hospital is a war-crime – so still need an international investigation;
          ii) You have still to show that Fredericks is a charlatan – you have a judgement that says the Judge prefers the evidence of the counter-expert – its like preferring the position of the other lawyer – its pretty normal in court;
          iii) Mr Spitz made an error, does that mean every other opinion he has given is wrong? That’s not very logical.
          C4 has done its job as independent media (something Sri Lanka could try and emulate) -it has put the spotlight on what appear to be ghastly war-crimes. Now we need an international, independent, investigation.
          Or do you not believe we need one? Is that your point?

                  Calling people names doesn’t change facts. Bombing any hospital is a war crime, but particularly one that appears to be full of civilians. You can try and bully people online all you like, being the little web-troll you are but your goon army bombed a hospital, and judging from the evidence it was full of civilians.

                      The reason, that I, the UN, and just about everyone else in the IC choose to ignore your ‘points’ is that they are nothing but conjecture.

                      What I don’t understand is, if you are so convinced none of these atrocities took place, why do you resist and independent investigation?

                      Ha ha haa is that why you have been writing a countless number of comments attempting to draw Red Herrings?

                      Because the preliminary “Independent investigation” turned out to be corrupt and has substituted the Rome Statute with opinions of the Red Cross. Who bribed them to do that? But don’t worry about it. Understanding that is beyond your intellect.

                      Re “That said I will refrain from calling you names – it belittles you, not me.”

                      Ha ha haa Is that why you are still playing with my pseudonym?

          “Callum Macrae is undoubtedly a Good Fabricator”

          Certainly! The reels of the “Lies Agreed…”, produced by Sinhala Intellectuals to compete with the super documentary,”Killing Field” has been thrown into the Temple Tree House inglenook before the Old King ran out of that manson of the fear of US army from Secretary Kerry.

          My history teacher tells an story and laugh, that I still remember.
          Sinhalese said, when Portuguese eat light brown bread and drink red color wine, “kallukkaddi kadikkiraankaL, raththam kuddkikiraankal”(those white color demons are eating rocks and drinking blood) and gave away the Kotte Kingdom and ran out of there. That is what the Old King did when he heard about the US troops.

                Hey the Kerala Mercenary Converted as Kandyan Sinhala Intellectuals, even you you are laughing at you people cowardice-ism. This is why the Sinhala Kings have been importing Mercenaries from Kerala. The Mercenaries taught you to eat non-milk dry appa, not to use the back bone and stand up.

                I read in some other essay in the CT, Sanagamita and Mahinta came and taught Muria culture to you.

                Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha…..

                Tamils Introduced Buddhism to Lankave from Tamil Nadu. The person who wrote has no idea of what is Maria culture is. NPC CM denies these fake stories and keep asking to have the history books re-written by UNESCO. Can you come for that, if you are sacred to go to ICC?

                The question is if Sangamitha and Mahinda brought the Buddhism, for what heck Buddha was flying to Lanakave? To do some Juggles and play with the baby Yakas? It is not the Yakas were cowardice to see a flying Buddha and be stunned, but the entire Modaya community was fooled by this kind of talks.

                The person who wrote that easy in CT is thinking the culture of a community is something a man and woman can carry in a packet. That comedian is really thinking the monks brought the culture of beastlity and incest story telling habit? Who are these monks, then? Asoka’s children? Really? Comedy thamai!

                Lankave’s first representative ever mentioned is about Kagayaku when he went himself to Chenkutuwan’s Celebration. That is how the Pathini Deviyo paying culture came to Sinhalese.

                When Asoka went to Kalinga and savagely destroyed the country, refugees went all over the world countries. That is the time most of them came to Lankave too. So Sinkala community has a mixture of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Kalinka cultures. It is not aware of Mauria culture. Two monks did not spread there their culture in Lankave.

                Ha. Ha. Ha. ha. ha. ha.

      ‘There is accounting of the dead right here. Its very simple.’

      May be that is why nobody has been able to find 140,000 corpses.

        “May be that is why nobody has been able to find 140,000 corpses.”

        Of course you wouldn’t find any corpses two years after the crime scene had been wiped clean behind closed doors.

        As a senior investigative journalist wee Thamihz Siva Sankaran Sarma Menon is in a position to report what exactly happened before, during and after the war.

        On the other hand the David Blacker had had hands on experience in cleaning the crime scene. He just tossed the bodies wherever he and his mates wanted to, as he was too young, innocent and stupid.

        According to David Blacker, he was a honourable soldier whose only concern was to kill as many terrorist as possible.

        Kind of “shoot first and brand the victims as terrorists later”.

        These are two prominent people whom I trust. Contact them for further details. David blacker may have witnessed or known necrophiliacs.

            Dear Tamil masquerading as a Vedda,

            Re your comment “Of course you wouldn’t find any corpses two years after the crime scene had been wiped clean behind closed doors”

            No crime scene can be wiped clean the way you foolishly insinuate. Certainly not the human remains of 140,000 dead!!!

            140,000 Dead!
            How many injured by war?

            At 1:1, 140,000
            At 1:2, 280,000
            At 1:3, 420,000

            The dead by war, the dead by natural causes, the wounded by war and the uninjured, together with natural increase will add up to a record Tamil population explosion.

            That is the Stupidity of Knee Jerk Wise Cracking.

                      He did lose the plot quite a while back :D Now it was apparently a “massacre of civilians” like in Rwanda – so the army must have gone around executing 140,000,000,000 totally innocent We Thamizh. Hence the killed:wounded ratios do not apply, as they would if say if the killing was actually done through, oh I don’t know, something like the indiscriminate shelling of the combat zone maybe :D

                      PS Can someone make sure Callum gets the memo, he still seems to be running with the old shelling story – don’t need him torpedoing the newest We Thamizh tale by not being up to date :D

                      Its a simple point. In massacres those stats of injured:dead you keep throwing around don’t apply. I.e. Sinhala army killed the injured (i do need to spell things out for you) – because they were ordered to by people in command. If you are asking why they didn’t kill all 440,000 civilians – you should ask Gota, but mine is a response to your theory on injured to dead ratio – i.e. as usual its conjecture.

                      Again hurling insults, is simply a measure of the small man you are, trolling from behind the safety of your keyboard.

                      So off-the-boat, lets get this logic right. Because 300,000 came out alive, it means the Sinhala army didn’t massacre any civilians? Despite all the other evidence that says they did, the fact that 300k lived, means it can’t be true.

                      I think a logic black-hole has appeared somewhere in Colombo and you are sitting in it. Try to respond without insults, or the CT moderator may edit you out, again.

              I agree with OTC that one cannot hide 140,000 corpses and that Satellite photographs would have shown if there were that many corpses.
              It should be mentioned that immediately after the end of the war Banki Moon with a retinue including Matthew Russell Lee of Inner City Press made an flew over by helicopters over the so called massacre site. The photographs taken in these flights were examined by the Study group of the American Association for Advancement of Science which had been commission by the Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch of USA to look for “grave sites.They did not find any new grave sites.
              140,000 dead is a statistical “gilmart”of a Bishop.

                Dear Vichara,

                This is what they have said “Last night’s toll of the dead is 3318 and of the injured more than 4000. It was a barrage of artillery, mortar, multi-barrel shelling and cluster bombs”

                A killed to wounded Ratio of 1:1.2+. Where are the 170,000 wounded? The wounded were transported to GOSL hospitals by the Red Cross. Hence records exist.

                140,000 dead + 170,000 wounded and 300,000 rescued. Add the natural increase and natural deaths they would not have been doing anything else other than making babies!!!

                But Killed to Wounded figure will rise when medical attention is available as less wounded will die.

                Kind Regards,

                  The numbers depend on how you define “innocence” in a war against terrorists whose main Target had been Innocent Civilians (who did not aid or abet or take part) throughout the 27 year war.

                    That is the most broad definition of ‘guilty’ – no wonder the Sri Lankan army feels comfortable murdering 100,000s – in Sri Lanka being armed or not is not relevant – you can kill someone, without judge or jury, if you think they ‘aided and abetted’ – and this is an educated Sri Lankan – tells you everything you need to know.

    The Evicted and Displaced North Muslims of Sri Lanka. The expulsion of the Muslims and other nations from the Northern province was an act of ethnic cleansing carried out by the Tamil militant Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) organization in October 1990. In order to achieve their goal of creating a mono ethnic Tamil state in the North Sri Lanka, the LTTE forcibly expelled the 72,000 strong Muslim population from the Northern Province.

    We should treat what comes out of Callum Macrae with suspicion. Holding a piece of paper and claiming it is a leaked copy of a report fools nobody. This is the same man who claimed in his original video that the Tamils were corralled into a tiny area and there were 40,000 killed. Don’t you think the bodies would have surfaced by now? Callum Macrae has not forgiven Sri Lanka for unceremoniously deporting him and his crew when covering the war.

                  Yes I understood your reference, but its use in this context seemed out of place, Off-the-Boat. Nothing I wouldn’t expect from an amateur military analyst sitting in Colombo. What is funny is seeing you trying to wriggle out of the obvious error. A mea cupla would have been more apt, but that something you Sri Lankan military types can’t do, isn’t it.

                  So you are saying, because there was video evidence elsewhere, anywhere that video evidence is missing must be evidence of a fabrication – brilliant logic. Yes, – sounds like the sort of thing the Sri Lankan army would say, because it really is that dumb.

                  And the second point, is that major powers with satellites haven’t produced any evidence, and so again, the lack of satellite imagery, casts doubts.

                  I suppose it does explain why you keep throwing tantrums. You actually may be a 5 year old with access to daddy’s computer. With logic that bad, it is actually dawning on me that I am conversing with a five-year old. Also explains the tantrums – ‘idiot’, ‘bold letters’, ‘capitals’.

          It is so natural to sense out the nasty racisms and lick on those to the Kerala Mercenary, converted as Kandyan Sinhala Intellectual.

          Shakespeare wrote the world famous drama. True, unfortunately, he did mix up some untasteful anti-semitics insults. If you take a pig to beautiful town, it will search out for cesspools. This Kandyan Sinhala Intellectual is filtering anti-semitism out of Shakespeare and throwing that dirt on others face. And then takes a hero like feeling out of it brag about it too.

        David once demanded to see rape scene videos in order to convince himself of rapes.

        Please send him copies in case if you happened to be around exactly at the time armed with the right video camera at the places where women and children (men too) were being raped ..

          Yes David Blackers logic is very Sri Lankan. Unless there is a video, no human rights abuses took place, and even when there is a video, it was probably fabricated.

            On the other hand those who were detained in Welikkada prison were deserved to be killed irrespective of why they were held there for, gospel according to David Blacker.

    Callum Macrae only published what was videoed by our very own Forces of the brutality committed, as momentous how they annihilated the LTTE and their families and friends when they came to surrender after burying their artillery and abandoning their stronghold Kilinochchi, on a plan proposed by the very forces that created and nurtured the LTTE. What a knee jerk reaction by those who try to defend and cover up War Crimes? Why feel guilty if nothing wrong happened? Wars and natural Disasters as Tsunamis, have been good business for all involved, except for those aggrieved who have paid dearly.

    There is doubt about the sincerity in some of the UN personal as well as those power blocks who created and nurtured the LTTE, with a hand in annihilating the LTTE in the end.

      Paul,

      Did you not see the exhibition of the array of arms displayed at the BMICH after announcing the War Victory by the MR Govt, claiming they were unearthed by the Forces? Further there was no fight whatsoever at Kilinochchi, because Kilinochchi had been vacated by the LTTE and the civilian population by the time the Forces moved in to Kilinochchi after killing Lasantha W. in Jan 2009? The only thing the MR govt kept secret was the white flag incident which SF blurted because he did not have a hand in it. But he had to retract hastily due to pressure, more from the US and the Indians than Gota. This was the biggest hoax of a war that MR fought with VP after VP helped MR to become the President.

      I am sorry for those who have no intuitive knowledge or just common sense to understand events.

        “after VP helped MR to become the President. “

        Don’t forget VP received a tidy sum for his services to democracy from MR clan, financed by big neighbour.

        The 2005 election result should have been challenged at the courts by UNP. An investigation should have been launched for money laundering activities and explanation sought from the neighbour.

        If found guilty MR should be sent to prison and the state should withdraw all his retirement perks including his pension.

        The buried arms were not all that the LTTE had. Surely you know that. It is true that they withdrew from Kilinochchi but it is absurd to say there was no battle there.

          Paul,

          For your information, after the MR govt proclaimed just prior to the NCP PC elections in August 2008, that Kilinochchi was encircled on three fronts it was a matter of time to capture Kilinochchi the last bastion of the LTTE. However after the election was won there was no move to capture Kilinochchi. When Journalists questioned SF he said that they will do so when it suits the Army. The NCP PC election was followed by heavy Monsoon that lasted till almost December. Then when the Army moved into Kilinochchi in Jan 2009, the LTTE and the entire Tamil civilian population numbering nearly four hundred thousand had moved to Puthkudiirippu, a distance of around sixty five miles. Kilinochchi was abandoned and was deserted. Therefore this Wikipedia news of a battle that raged in Kilinochchi is totally false.

              To CT Readers,

              Killinochchi was under attack from three sides by Ground and Aerial bombardment for several weeks (if not months) before it fell to the SLA on 2nd January 2009.

              On the same day the following message was delivered to the LTTE by the President.

              “I also wish to send a message; the final message to the LTTE, to lay down their arms and surrender”

              Prabahkaran supported by his International Network did not heed the call and instead was busy in getting India and the West to intervene. To achieve this objective the International arm of the LTTE whipped up the “Nationalist Tamil Sentiment” of the foolish diaspora followers of separatism, to stage protest campaigns.

              They put on an impressive display of their voting strength. A bait that could not be resisted by some.

              Although everyone knew, after Killi fell, that Prabahkaran and the LTTE was a spent force militarily, except for a handful Tamils, NO ONE called for Prabahkaran to lay down arms and end the suffering of the Wanni Tamils.

              The Tamils of the Wanni were mere Pawns to be sacrificed at the Altar of Eelam.

              The blame for it must be laid at the feet of the Overseas Tamils, as they were the ones Funding Prabahkaran’s war.

              A day after Killi fell, in the morning of the fourth, a retinue of Media personal were taken to Killinochchi and Paranthan by the Air Force.

              May be as the Pseudo Vedda pontificates in his wisdom elsewhere on this web page, “Of course you wouldn’t find any corpses two years after the crime scene had been wiped clean behind closed doors” the forces would have cleaned Killi spotless in 48 hours!

              FrontLine correspondent Mr B. Muralidhar Reddy was amongst them. This is from his Eye Witness account.

              Quote
              The six-hour visit of the media team showed that it was not just the “civilians” who had disappeared from the bustling town, supposedly home to an estimated 100,000 to 150,000 people. ,,,,,, It was evident that even as the Tigers were trying their best to stop the military from entering Kilinochchi for at least one and a half months, they were engaged simultaneously in the task of dismantling the entire infrastructure of the town.

              Everything that could be ripped off was taken out neatly and carted away. That included even electrical fittings such as switches, regulators and bulbs, and asbestos roofs, doors and windows of every house and establishment in the town. Kilinochchi, stretching in length to eight kilometres and spread across the A-9 highway, is one of the “longest” towns in Sri Lanka. So, it would have taken the LTTE a minimum of four to five weeks to unscrew all that could be bundled and packed and to take them away.

              The civil and administrative infrastructure which could not be carted away was destroyed. The city’s main water tank, which was 40 feet long, was blasted to pieces, presumably with the help of high-powered explosives, and the wires that supplied power to the city were slashed. Sri Lankan military officials believe that the fleeing Tigers must have wound the copper wires and parcelled them to their hideouts in the thick jungles of Mullaithivu district, the last remaining stronghold of the Tigers.

              When the military descended on Kilinochchi in the early hours of January 2, not a soul was living there. Going by the accounts of the LTTE, the civilians of the town had fled much before the military reached there. The only trace of life in the town amid the rumble of military trucks and the movement of men in uniform were a few stray dogs and cows.

              Interestingly, the LTTE left its own administrative and political headquarters and the peace secretariat untouched. The commandos of the Sri Lankan military who reached the three-storeyed administrative headquarters of the Tigers were surprised to find the structure with its impressive doors and windows intact. Its main door was left slightly ajar with the key on it.

              Once inside, the military personnel were in for a shock. All the three floors of the buildings had been emptied out and the floors were shining. “It was as if a tenant had vacated a house and vacuumed it thoroughly for the benefit of the new tenant,” an officer who was one of the first to reach the site told Frontline.

              There have been instances in the history of wars where the retreating armies have resorted to “scorched earth policy”. However, it is doubtful if there has been any other instance of a systematic dismantling of civil and administrative infrastructure on such a large scale as was evident in Kilinochchi. The task could have been particularly daunting considering the fact that the Tigers were cornered virtually from all sides for weeks and were faced with numerous aerial bombardments.

                    Well, I ask why, because thus far your logic has some rather fatal flaws.

                    In the above discussion, you essentially cast doubt on events (‘white flag incident’) because there is no satellite imagery or phone footage – i.e. any war crime without either of those seems suspicious to you. Fortunately, prosecutions in Sierra Leone, Rwanda, and Bosnia, were some how successful without them, but thats another matter.

                    I will let CT readers determine which of us has the challenges with simple logic.

                    But again, rather than calling me names, can you succinctly deliver the point of your diatribe above? Or perhaps there is no logic.

    Who wants to believe this fool Callum Macrae that makes a living licking the Tamils in the Diasporas? The way he speaks here in this clip, he looks so suspicious and very so guilty because he is so conscious that he is blatantly lying for money he is paid for. After all the piece of paper he had in his hands could have been some garbage. At the end of the day, Sri Lanka shall prevail as one nation and the war mongering West led by the USA will be a big loser as it happens all the time wherever they traverse

    Now innocent Tamils are dead and many Buda statues built on top of their blood. Buda is not a srilankan Singhalese, he will punish those butchers. There is a saying I fallen man from a tree do not have to worry about height, likewise we do not have any more to loose. So international investigation or nothing – we will wait for that day until Diaspora like Jews convince the international community to accept one or until India to suffer more and one day it will regret for their dirty part in the killing and come forward to compensate for their involvement, may be another Crème/Ukraine. God Krishna , Buda & Jesus help Tamils. Every event happening will have a good end (Mahabaratham)

    AN OPEN APPEAL TO TNA”

    We have red in the CT and other news media that UN is not prescribing ICC inquiry in the next meeting. Earlier this year, after the EP election, we read in these pages that UN will not be tabling the “Report” in March. Sometime back UN’s internal report was leaked by BBC. It did not blame Nambiar or any officials in the UN for oversight crime of the murder of 145,000. This time, UN’s somersault has been leaked by CH4. Ambassador Robert Blake said in American Congress that America was cheated after arming the Lanka for the war victory. It is open, now, even for International governments that the Lankan Government did not simply tore off pacts with Tamils, but they did not implement the pact with India by scraping the 13A. After that PM Manmohan declared “if Lankave’s government is not listening to us what we can do for that?” It is in this condition from 2010 to 2012 TNA negotiated with Appe Aanduwa under the pressure of India. Everybody did know that once more nothing happened by a negation from outside pressure only on TNA. UNP appointed its own lawyers in Vidiya’s case and told the Judge that the government had destroyed all evidences and the case has to be canceled. Emergency and POT law are practically still tearing off Tamil community with fierce teeth. There are everyday a new drama released as “kottiya avila”. There is no witness protection even though there is a 13A like un-implementable law. Within all these, the North that is forcefully separated from the east has been called in to investigate the Genocide against Tamil with UNP. How much moral authority or landscape pervasiveness NPC has to investigate the Genocide that took place on Tamils for 65 years? Further, this is the UNP promised to Old King on the Morning of Jan 8th at Temple Tree House that he can take the UNP offered Helicopter and leave the Manson with confidence as the President of UNP will protect him. The UNP has claimed that they have won the fight against the ICC accord. We had written in these pages that the UN is ready to sacrifice TNA to prop up UNP. We had said “one Robert Blake for Anathasangari and TULF”, and “one Prince Zeid for Sampanthar and TNA”. TNA will be having real pounding from opponents in this election. Sumanthiran, who gave presentation last year against Ananathi in UN, has switched over his tone to get the attention of the Tamils. Now, he had called for ICC inquiry, but all are suspecting him with the current results. Whether this is an election stunt by Prince Zaid for south or not, this is an election time blow to TNA. NPC is part of TNA. NPC bound to make decision to get along with the parent organization, the TNA. So my question for TNA is, “is it aware of the leaked documents? Did Sumanthiran or Sampanthar give any approval, anytime for this type arrangement? Don’t they perceive that this type of massive change will be detrimental to Tamils to get their solution for their national question? Don’t they accept that if a satisfying solution can be obtained and, unlike the failed 13A, if that can be enforced, it can be only after an international inquiry? “ Then, my open appeal to TNA is will they inform the Tamil, in North and East, of the looming danger of the inquiry being flopped by UNHRC. Will they follow the suite of the TGTE, which went for the million signature petition to UNHRC? Will they campaign for a mandate from Tamils to have the call for International Inquiry re-installed in UNHRC? Above and all, will TNA release a public statement to UNHRC, instead of waiting for the September sitting and being too late to reverse the decision that is already taken, their disapproval of an internal inquiry in the absence of a parallel International Inquiry, and their unwillingness of participating an improper internal inquiry?

    Buddhist Ban-Ki-Moon and his ex-Malayali chief of staff are fully aware if there is an international inquiry this will expose many activities of these two guys….in this Tamil massacre..

    This is why even after this Malayali chief of staff has retired Ban-ki-Moon has given him some post where Malayali can have UN Diplomatic passport.

    This massacre is well planed ahead under the leadership of poverty India ..

    Local and foreign Bank accounts and properties (including their relations ) of all Indians involved in SL Tamil affair should be investigated..

    You can’t hide the truth foreever

    Cheers

    Mr.Macrae is a brilliant journalist reporting serious matters all over the world.

    He reports ONLY absolute facts.

    He has proof that crimes were committed against minorities by the Rajapaksas and the forces.

    He knows and every one knows that a domestic inquiry will be a farce.

    UN is only a toothless snake without any power to do anything positive.

    Even if UN wants to punish the murderers just one country like Russia or China can use the veto
    power to stop it. What a joke the UN is.

    again EVERY ONE knows that only an independent international investigation will establish
    Justice.

    Callum Macrae, Please continue your good work keeping in mind that good journalists are
    simply killed in our third world country. Do not worry they cannot touch you. All the Best.

    This blog is evidence enough of why Sri Lankan needs an independent international investigation. All those sympathetic to the SInhala side of this ethnic conflict essentially believe Mahinda Rajapakse’s line that there were no war crimes, despite substantial volumes of evidence to the contrary. Shame.

    “Was it a war crime?”

    Of course it was and still is.

    “Who was punished?”

    No one is punished symbolically. However you wouldn’t know how nature dealt with war criminals.

    “Who were treated as heroes?”

    For the victims and their kith and kin non of them were heroes but war criminals though they would not say it on the record.

    ” Does the passing of time make it okay?”

    No however that should be a lesson for rest of the world. If the world has not learnt anything from brutal war good luck to them.
