Sri Lanka Participation Overshadows C’Wealth Games – TGTE Writes To Hague

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam has today written to the British Foreign Secretary William Hague, for support and to formally advice the Commonwealth Secretariat and Commonwealth Games Federation that the prestigious Commonwealth sporting celebration risks being overshadowed by questions raised about human rights abuses and genocide in Sri Lanka, by their participation in the Games.

Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran -PM – TGTE

In the letter, the TGTE Ministry of International Affairs expressed concerns and raised the following points:

  • The role that President Rajapaksa may play at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
  • The continued arrogance of the Rajapaksa regime to the International Community and their non-conformance to the values and principles of the Commonwealth, as well as their refusal to conform to the UN HRC Resolutions.
  • Their continued structural genocide on the Tamil Homeland in the island of Sri Lanka, the use of the Sri Lankan army to colonize and seize land belonging to the Tamil population.
  • The Tamils are continuing to live in fear and terror, and many are still fleeing by boats as refugees.

It also highlighted that:

  • The British Government still has the obligation and responsibility to the Tamils in Sri Lanka to correct its wrongs. Successive Sri Lankan regimes have denied equal political rights and continue to subjugate the Tamils.
  • There are no signs of equality or political devolution despite the conclusion of the war five years ago, with the massacre of 70,000 people, behind closed doors.
  • Britain now has the opportunity to lead and call for a UN conducted referendum for the Tamils in the north and east, the Tamil Diaspora who were forced to leave the country, and for the thousands of Tamil refugees scattered around the world, to decide their future destiny.
  • And Let the Games be a proud moment for the Scots and the city of Glasgow, and an inspiration for justice, accountability, regional stability, peace with dignity for the Tamils.

“TGTE will continue to pursue a peaceful permanent political solution with the support of the International community.” said its Ministry of International Affairs.

    The Glasgow games were spoiled by two Keralites, Kamalesh Sharma and Ranjan Metha, the Foreign secretary of India. They took their Tamils hate to Australia and worked to get that leadership to Lanka. That time Canada, Britain and Australia too opposed these rogues bad move. But Gotha and Namal went there with a large sum of money and supporting actresses and finished game clean.

    But Britain should not give this war criminal a visa to come to Glasgow. They cheated the British Embassy to get a visa for Karuna also. That is more than enough to refuse a visa for this guy.

      “Sri Lanka Participation Overshadows C’Wealth Games – TGTE Writes To Hague”

      Oh no, not again.

      As shadow foreign secretary William Hague should have found ways to stop the killing of innocent civilians who were massacred in their thousands.

      If they are able to start wars, surely they had the means to stop the brutal war.

      Mallaiyuran,

      “Britain should not give this war criminal a visa”

      There are many known and far bigger war criminals already domiciled in Britain. Top LTTE backers among them.

      Many war criminals visit at Britain’s invitation. Receive a red carpet welcome on arrival too.

      George Bush, Netanyahu & “King” Abduallah among them. Will Britain now cancel their visas too?

      Tony Blair killed more civilians than Rajapassa Clan will ever manage. Tony lives in peace and dignity. In Britain. Globetrotting, lecturing and sharing his wisdom with other so called “VVIPs”.

      Why dish out step motherly treatment to SL’s King Kong only? By Britain. Could there be other reasons. Geo-politics, corrupted domestic political compulsions among them.

      Has it got something to do with your unrelenting hatred of SL and Sinhalese people in general?

      Or are you after Justice & reconciliation for all? In which case you have my support.

      Cheers!

      PS: When did Britain become the paragon of Global Justice anyway? When they are already the well established symbol of Global Hypocrisy.

        “Why dish out step motherly treatment to SL’s King Kong only? By Britain. Could there be other reasons. Geo-politics, corrupted domestic political compulsions among them. Has it got something to do with your unrelenting hatred of SL and Sinhalese people in general?”
        There is no step motherly Treatment in my writing. It is the Tamils are one treated like that in Lanka. There is no unrelenting hatred in me for Sinhalese. But as a matter of fact, would you like to share your apartment for man a man accused of international war crime? That is why I don’t want to stay with Lanka. I want my Tamil Eelam. Still I can understand your urge to save King Kong. (You found an appropriate name for this Chinese government’s slave). But, I am not sure you are on the correct path. Certainly, sometime back, something worked for Kathirgamar at Diplomatic level. But this type of story twisting alone may not sufficient on the coming International Investigation. If you have any evidence of what you are saying, keep it dusted.

        “There are many known and far bigger war criminals already domiciled in Britain. Top LTTE backers among them.”
        I cannot keep re-defining the English Words the way you do. So please understand the following with the help of a British, American or Canadian dictionary. Any one of them can help. “LTTE backers are not LTTE. LTTE is a proscribed organization in Britain. Unlike in your Lanka, there is a functioning immigration office and police force in Britain. Please provide and help the British police any wrongful act taking place so that they can arrest the LTTEers in Britain. If they refuse to do that, please bring and post all replies you get on CT. Please don’t come and cry like a baby they that there is tigers in Britain.” You know this LTTE backers and tiger revival stories can help the King Kong to win the next election. It will not help Cameron or Miliband. So nobody there is going to pay attention to this paid advertising claim.

        There is no LTTEers in Britain with British Visa. You are fully aware of your story that you are creating. Lankans are the one cheat British embassy and get visas. Karuna, a war criminal and LTTEer, is the one got visa from British embassy. They gave visa to him because there is no functioning immigration office in Sri Lanka to exert some control on issuance of passports. As an international procedure (Geneva Convention) Tamils need not to go with Sri Lankan passport to seek asylum in Britain. This was a misunderstanding of Kong’s government when they wanted to kick Karuna out of Lanka; they sent him with a Diplomatic passport and duped Visa too. The usual Lankans’ misunderstanding of law make your Kong’s government to thinks that LTTEers and War criminals can go and seek asylum in Britain.

        “When did Britain become the paragon of Global Justice anyway? When they are already the well established symbol of Global Hypocrisy “

        That is correct, Britain is not having any saying on a UN Veto wielding country like Lanka. After All, it is King Kong who is the one going to appoint the nest Commonwealth Queen, whom the 53 nations are voluntarily accepting as head of of the organization.

        Yet, Britain is not immune to mistakes. Democracy is not a solution intended to stop war crime either. But,yet being a Monchy country, it is an excellent democracy. Its complex government, combined the monarch and parliament, is functioning with few pages of constitution and a long list old customs. They left an only simple constitution to Lankans to start with, thinking Lankans might pick up customs from their 150 years rule. When the corruption at current Lankan level, even written down laws are not being able to hold; then where will be a place for customs? But, now the poor status of Lanka is that they are not able to recognize that Britain has brought War Crime Investigation against them as Cameron promised when he was in Jaffna. Even a remote African country people wouldn’t be in that of dark. But the Asian Wonder is not being able to realize what is about to come. With that condition, it is interesting to watch the talk about Britain’s war crime and their 200,300 years old sea fights. There were no international rules those days to hold them for breaking those rules.

        “Tony Blair killed more civilians than Rajapassa Clan will ever manage. Tony lives in peace and dignity. In Britain. Globetrotting, lecturing and sharing his wisdom with other so called “VVIPs”.

        It is a custom in Lanka that if you point out a mistake on them, they forcefully attempt to equal the elephant to cat. Britain got involved with America in wars. There is different in American UAV’s bombing with extreme precision,once in month, in target countries on Al Qaeda operations, from the Lankan war of more than 30 Kefirs and Migs, for more than an year, days and nights, after having deported SLMM and international media, bombing their own citizens with Cluster Bombs, Chemical Bombs and Thermobaric Bombs and killing more than 146,000.

        All American and British mistakes are recorded by international reports. That is how everybody came to know about that. Further you were not in the field when they fought with Al Qaeda, Taliban et al. Unlike the Tamils who were in fields when the war was launched on them, you are not a party in that war. All what you are proving is a second had data in an attempt to bring a fake case against Britain so you can show that as a defense and justify your Kong’s government’s crimes. Tamils are with the first-hand information of what happened to them, trying to seek justice for that. They are their witness against Kong’s government’s on the war against them. But, you may remember that you are not a witness in the Al-Qaeda war against Britain. So what can I can advise you is hereafter drop down the war against the Al-Qaeda as your defense, find out a constructive way to say your Kong’s government, if that is your object. In addition to that, when you go file against British war crimes, shop around and keep with you some so called affected ones, in case, if somdy ask for whom you had come to talk.

        There were mistakes done by American and British toop. The international reporters brought those out. It is not for the purpose of the CT commentators to use it to save their criminal government in a future date. These media men risked their lives(like Mary Colin) to bring the truth out. By this American and British army men was investigated and punished(In your opinion if you thinks some still can be further investigated, instead wasting your time on this futile attempt to save this criminal, whom you appears to mentally agree as war criminal, you should contract the NGOs who can work on that and submit your evidences to them). You know that Kong’s government is the only one refuse to investigate when the evidence is submitted. Upto today their positions is zero causality and so they not going to investigate even one case.

        In Afghanistan, the rogue president Hamid Karzai was critical of every civilian death and it was one of the reasons that the NATO was forced to leave without leave back any support for the Afghan’s new government. This could help the Taliban to take over it in one day.

        “George Bush, Netanyahu & “King” Abduallah among them. Will Britain now cancel their visas too”
        Bush and Netanyahu exceeded the international boundaries on war activities. This is not equivalent of bombing 147,000 after deporting the international media. This is provides no defense for Kong. Yet, my understanding is, Bush does not visit Europe. Netanyahu is not holding any international positions like Commonwealth Head. Saudi Arabian Kong was not directly involved in wars. There is no use of dragging them into this.

        “Or are you after Justice & reconciliation for all? In which case you have my support.”

        If you are with me on anything, first let us to put our effort on our internal criminals. Sure! Once we have cleaned the inside dirt, we together can sweep the road too. Until that please put aside the stories of Netanyahu, Abdulla, Bush….

    Colombo Telegraph has already given legitimacy to this Bunch of Pretenders who are a remnant collection of LTTE escapees.

      You might not like the person but the issues raised are valid and I would say are in the best interest of the games.

      AS to CT I have not seen you complain about the exposure given to BBS or the political scoundrels.

      Shame on you living in a developed country and cannot look at an article for what it is worth.

    Sri Lanka should boycott C’welth games in protest to UK’s continuing support to terrorism and demanding not to interfere with the International Criminal Court investigation on war crimes committed by British forces. If Sri Lanka boycott the games, then it will be like a wedding with out the bride, it’s time to give a sucker punch to Cameron’s balls.

      Sadith is right: If WE had the balls we will (i) Boycott the Commonwealth Games, and (ii) call off the Cricket tour of England. That will screw-up the British summer and teach them not to interfere in our affairs

      I doubt that Sri Lanka and in particular Mahinda will boycott. This is another stage for him to fool the Sinhala Modaya.

      Have some imagination …Mahinda Standing at the podium all athletes march past him saluting him and the country flag dipped as they march past him. This is a golden opportunity….the TV footage will be e flashed in all Sinhala media TV with the commentary that the whole world is saluting him for defeating the Tamil Terrorist and making Sri Lanka a Sinhala Buddhist Country.There will be posters of this printed and plastered all over Sri Lanka

      He then call elections and Sinhala Modayas will vote for the King of the world to be their kinga as well.

      Sadith,

      I support your proposition.

      It will be like the ultimate “Bitch Fight” among two hypocritical states.

      We can all sit back and enjoy the unfolding drama. Over the summer.

      We don’t need no Commonwealth Games or SL Tour of England in 2014.

      Cheers!

      PS: Imagine GL & Hague at each other’s throats. At all times. Looking forward.

    Can the Native Veddeh ask to form National National Government and request that Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamils an, Para-Muslims and other Paras to go back to South India and India, their Native Lands, based on DNA evidence?

    Will the British Help?

    The, there will be peace and tranquility in the Land of the Native Vedda.

      Hague has been singing the praises of the NeoNazis (empowered by US/EU) in Ukraine and their alleged enemies of a few years ago, the Al Qaeda, who are still fighting to control Syria. Why would he not read a letter from another group of known terrorists, especially when it is from their ‘Ministry of International Affairs’ ?

    Will the proud Scots in Glassgow bend over to ex LTTE Tigers, who are now parading as Prime Ministers and Ministers of the Eelaam in the West?.

    They know that this Eelaam cabinet is from the same crowd who helped their leader to give Cyanide capsules to youngsters and made them child soldiers.

    They are part of the same mob whose leader adorned young naive Tamil women with C4 Jackets to go and blow up innocent Sinhala and Muslim mums , grand mothers and monks.

    Cameron and Hague will sleep even with the Devil as long as it brings them votes in Marginals or bring oil wealth to their supporters and financiers.

    English in London of course seem to be a different breed.

    They kept mum when the Tiger GTF threatened the Srilankan President with physical violence

    And their Govt wimped out with the ridiculous claim that they are not competent enough to protect the President from the ex LTTE turned British gentry.

    Scots who have a fairly long prud history as same as the Srilankan people wouldn’t tolerate that sort of mediocre performance from their leaders…

    The continued actions of MR & cabal emboldens the Diaspora leadership to
    act this way, given the many chances to repent. Even the Sinhala
    community/Rajapakse-rump under such stress will react as the diaspora does and is human nature. Why compare other States when what is under
    threat are so-called CW values involving the current Chairman himself?
