Sri Lankan Police Officer’s UK Asylum Case: SL Authorities Involved In ‘Widespread’, ‘Systematic’ Attacks On Tamils

In a significant development that would further strengthen the growing calls for international impartial inquiry into the alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity against the Rajapaksa regime, the British judiciary has upheld the UK government’s position that Sri Lankan authorities have involved in “a widespread and systematic attack” against the Tamil population “as a part of the government’s strategy”.

The UK’s Upper Tribunal, the Immigration and Asylum Chamber’s  judges Lane and Pitt, a couple of weeks ago have made these finding while determining an asylum appeal of an anonymity direction protected appellant, a Sri Lankan Police Officer, who has been named as “Mr. AS”

Mr. AS began his career as a Police Officer in Sri Lanka in 2003.  From 2007 until he left the Unit in January 2010, Mr. AS worked in a Special Unit within the Sri Lankan Police department that was tasked with the job of abducting Tamil civilians.

Mr. AS feared that he was at risk either from the government who may have suspected him of disclosing information about the torture and murder of Tamil suspects or from the criminal underworld who had been informers for and victims of the Special Unit. He decided to leave the country. His asylum claim was based on the fear that the Sri Lankan authorities would persecute him if he were returned to Sri Lanka. His asylum claim was refused by the Home Office.

Mr. AS appealed against the Secretary of State for Home Department’s (SSHD) decision to the First Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber). The First Tier Tribunal dismissed his appeal and upheld the decision made by the SSHD and he appealed to the Upper Tribunal.

Dismissing the appeal, senior Upper Tribunal judges found that “…during the period of the appellant’s service in the special unit that the actions of Sri Lankan authorities were well-characterised as “a widespread and systematic attack” directed at the civilian population, in particular those of Tamil ethnicity. Indeed, it was difficult to conclude otherwise, this being the consistent view across the human rights and country reports on Sri Lanka for that period.”

“We were satisfied that there was ample evidence of a “widespread” and “systemic” attack conducted by the Sri Lankan authorities, the AI and EU reports referring in terms to the abuse of the Tamil population being part of a government “strategy,” the Judges said in their determination..

Ruling that they “did not find it credible that, if only from his service in the police from 2003 to 2009 that the appellant did not know of the routine and serious abuse of Tamils”, the Upper Tribunal Judges said “…it is our view that the country evidence shows overwhelmingly that the Sri Lankan authorities were specifically attacking the Tamil population, the police force being agents in that attack, certainly by the way of torture and kidnapping.

They have  also citied to the US State Department report which  referred to “numerous reports that the army, police, and pro-government paramilitary groups participated in armed attacks against civilians and practiced torture, kidnapping, hostage-taking, and extortion with impunity” and to the use of torture by police to extract confessions being “endemic”.

“..It was our view that the appellant could only but have known of the treatment of Tamils by the police,other services and of the government strategy to attack the Tamil population,” the UK’s Upper Tribunal Judges have said in their determination.

During his time within the Special Unit, Mr. AS was not informed who his commanding officers were, nor was he ever given the opportunity to meet them. Within the Special Unit, secrecy was of the utmost importance. The Special Unit used unmarked vehicles to carry out their orders.

Targets for abduction by the Special Unit were only disclosed immediately before the Unit was dispatched to a location. Mr. AS would be told the destination for the civilian only after the civilian had been successfully abducted. The Unit would take the abductees to a variety of places, including abandoned houses. He would usually hand them over to other agents in unmarked vehicles or leave them at abandoned properties.

The SSHD, in her refusal to grant asylum decided that Mr. AS should be excluded from the Refugee Convention as he was directly involved and/or complicit in human rights violations or war crimes carried out by the Sri Lankan Government against the ethnic Tamil population in Sri Lanka.    Mr. AS’s Barrister, Ms. Shivani Jegarajah argued that the SSHD was wrong and the Home Secretary had not made out the primary part of her case in that the Sri lankan authorities had not committed human rights violations and breaches of the Geneva Conventions in a systematic and widespread manner and the abuse of the Tamil population was not being part of the Sri lankan Government’s strategy.  In their determination, the senior Upper Tribunal judges have rejected her submissions and dismissed Mr. AS’s appeal.

Legal sources in the UK described UT’s determination as “an important reported judgment which has given the UK Judiciary an opportunity to apply the Geneva Conventions and other UN Conventions in respect of the abuses committed by the Sri Lankan forces during the civil war”.

They say that this judgment will more crucially, affect employees, agents and abettors of the Sri Lankan state.

“Significant to the case is the position taken by the Home Secretary Ms. Theresa May.  Her position endorses the fact that the Sri Lankan authorities have committed human rights violations and breached the Geneva Conventions in a systematic and widespread manner. In addition, the Home Secretary has taken the view that the Government of Sri Lanka’s racial policy and strategy manifested into pervasive abuse, unlawful imprisonment and torture of the Tamil civilian population”.

“This view is consistent with those held by the UK Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary as evidenced by the statements they made during the recent Parliamentary debates and in their recent visit to Sri Lanka in November 2013,” the Legal sources pointed out.

“The Court has upheld the UK Government’s view that the widespread and systematic nature of the attacks against the Tamil population and the abuse of the Tamil population is an inherent part of the Sri Lankan Government’s strategy. This judgment is an endorsement of the effective response by the UK Government to the attempts by perpetrators to claim asylum after carrying out acts of torture, extra-judicial killings and disappearances in Sri Lanka. It will undoubtedly have wider implications in the Sri Lankan victims’ quest for justice and accountability,” the sources said.

        Mahinda Rajapakse MUST be STRIPPED of the post of Chair of the Commonwealth of Nations (which has become a laughing stock of the world and is now called the Commonwealth of Clowns) for war crimes and destruction of democratic institutions in Sri Lanka.

        The RIGHT TO INFORMATION has been consistently violated and denied the people of Sri Lanka and a petition will be made by media organizations and civil society groups to the Commonwealth of Nations to STRIP Rajapassa of the post of Chair for the destruction of the RIGHT TO INFORMATION and DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS of Sri Lanka.

        Good news indeed.

        The policy of attacking Tamils has its parallel in DISCRIMINATION against TAMILS in the PUBLIC and GOVERNMENT SECTOR – particularly administration and education sectors. The Sri Lanka Higher Education sector and Universities in Colombo and the South are notorious for discrimination against highly qualified Tamils entering the system. While intellectual freedom itself is in short supply, qualified Tamils are DOUBLY VICTIMIZED, discriminated against and scapegoated due to the ENDEMIC RACISM and ENVY and JEALOUSLY of English speaking minorities.

        Qualified Tamils who apply for jobs at all levels, but particularly senior posts in Administration and academic Lecturerer and Professor positions in the universities of Sri Lanka are systematically discriminated against. As a result there are very few Tamils in administrative and academic posts and there is a brain drain of the Tamil minority from Sri Lanka.

    Let the world wake up to the stark reality of the many successive SL govt’s undertaking the evil project of the Supremacists for a period of more than 60 years after independence.

        During the last 2500 years Tamils ruled only 200 years their own land south India. Otherwise they were always ruled by the north Indians. During that time (2500 years) Tamils invaded Sri Lanka nearly 40 times & Sinhalese people were able to chased them away. Tamils will establish Elam in Australia, UK, France, Germany, Canada & USA after some more years. Good luck LTTE.

        Don’t see anyone around who’s disagreeing! are you griping about something…or what ? If I’m an American I’d probably be writing a heck of a lot about Guantanamo. One major difference though ! I don’t see Obama and company pretending to do things for the US while the agenda at heart is to establish and extend a killer dictatorship.Big difference taking out killers who are a threat to your country’s, your people’s, security and taking out men of integrity who expose your diabolic means of crushing the dignity out of a nation’s citizens.trying to draw a parallel between what’s happening in the US or elsewhere and the naked state terrorism in Sri Lanka would be hilarious if not for the fact that the people taken out in Sri lanka are decent men..Snowden, Assange fall into that category or simply nitwits jeopardising their country’s safety.Obama and his predecessors were not having hidden agendas to continue in power, NOT ONE SINGLE ONE OF THEM.. IT WAS TAKING OUT TERRORIST, PLAIN AND SIMPLE.. AND NOT AFTER THEY HAD SURRENDERED WITH WHITE FLAGS, NOT AFTER THE HAD BEEN ABUSED AND RAPED AND THEN KILLED.

        IF YOU DON’T SEE THE RATIONALE IN gUANTANAMO i’M NOT SO STUPID AS TO WASTE TIME TRYING TO PERSUADE YOU.

        STRETCHING THING A BIT i’M AFRAID IF ANYONE IS EQUATING THE RAJAPAKSA REGIME, THE RAJAPAKSAS, WITH GENUINE WORLD LEADERS WHO ARE UP AGAINST GLOBAL TERRORISTS AND ARE NOT PSYCHOPATHIC KILLERS INTENT ON SNUFFING OUT ANY AND ALL FORMS OF DISSENT.

    This had to happen,and has happened at last. At least one or two of those recruited to the inhuman task of abduction of civilians thought to be a ‘danger’ to the tyrannical regime,had to have his conscience tell him that what he was doing was against humanitarian principles, and tell him to quit and escape.
    Unfortunately he could not testify as to what happened to the civilians he abducted and handed over – but it is anyone’s guess what would have happened in this situation – they could not have been “freed to go home”!!

    A Typical Sinhala Modaya being used by the GTF as a test case………..

    DETERMINATION AND REASONS……………………………………..

    108. We did not find that the appellant’s account showed that he was under suspicion or wanted by the authorities or anyone else in Sri Lanka.

    109. Firstly, he claims that he left the special unit in January 2010. He and his family remained in Sri Lanka until October 2010. There was ample opportunity for those who wished him harm to act in some substantive way against him but his account at its highest does not include any such evidence. If the appellant was at risk from the government itself or members of the criminal underworld, we did not find it credible that they would not have been able to access him even if he had been staying mostly in army barracks as he claims. There is no suggestion that any of his family were harmed or threatened and they remained living openly.

    110. Secondly, he claims that four members of his unit disappeared because of adverse interest from the government or criminal underworld. We did not find that this could be inferred from their not signing on weekly or his friend Ranatanuga not going to the gym. There could be any number of innocent explanations, transfer to another unit or part of the country for example.

    111. If the appellant believed that his friend Ranatanuga had disappeared and that the police had failed to follow up the wife’s report of this, we did not find it credible that the appellant made no further attempt whilst in Sri Lanka or after coming to the UK to contact the wife or in some other way find out if his friend had returned or exactly what had happened to him. We did not find his failure to do so could be explained by his evidence that he did nothing further about Ranatanuga’s disappearance as he was more concerned for the safety of his own family.
    112. Thirdly, the appellant relies on three letters from his mother sent to him after he came to the UK. The first letter states that the police came to look for him as he had not reported for work for two weeks. His parents told them that he had left the country. The other two letters state that the police continued to come to ask for the appellant, searched, asked questions and made threats and that the appellant’s parents decided to move to the home of a relative.

    113. We did not find we could place weight on these letters for a number of reasons. They are very basic in form and could have been produced by anyone in order to bolster the appellant’s claim. The letter referring to the appellant having not reported for work for 2 weeks is postmarked 2011. As above, he came to the UK in October 2010. This is not consistent with the letter having been sent in 2011. Also, the appellant’s statement at the hearing that he did not want to contact Ranatanuga’s wife from the UK as he did not want the authorities to find out that he was here is not consistent with the indication in the first letter that the authorities were told of this by his parents.

    The rejection of Mr AS’s application for asylum in UK will discourage other soldiers and policemen who could confess to their involvement in torture, abductions and rape of innocent Tamils or Muslims. To get to the bottom of the carefully planned genocide by Gotabaya and his henchmen plea bargain must be encouraged. This will stop the Sri Lankan regime’s motive and criminality and be a deterrent to other similar rulers in other countries.

    Isn’t it interesting: a Tamilian Sri Lankan can gain asylum in the UK because he or she was a terrorist. A Sinhalese Sri Lankan will be denied asylum in the UK because he allegedly carried out acts of terror against Tamils or other opponents of the government. A Tamilian or Moslem Sri Lankan will also be denied asylum in the UK unless he or she admits to being a terrorist.

    No wonder many British people consider that lunatics have taken over the British judiciary!

    there is no point arguing. Good for this cop. At least he was not holed up like Julian Asange

    Everywhere, the asylum seekers, torture claimant’s claims are enteretained, it is a part of the claimant to involve the Country, Administration and/or the politicians or a political party or names of persons with political affiliations who have had received publicity one got to say have created trouble.

    Majority of claimants are opportunists and it is very easy to cook up a story as the material is available in the media. Only to tie up one self.
    Lasantha’s wife’s mother, sister, brother in law (both doctors) too sought asylum in the USA at sonali’s expense.Wonder, how they qualified? Just writing a detrimental article against the GOSL.

    IT IS NOT THE CLAIMANT ‘AS’ WHO IS THE VICTIM BUT THE GULLIBLE PERSON/S IN THE SYSTEM OR A HIDDEN AGENDA.
    COOKING UP A STORY BACKED UP BY MEDIA REPORTS ARE QUITE EASY. SL media has abundance of such stories.
    Mervyn Sila’s “KUDU LAL” too was given asylum in the U.K. (What more)

    At the expense of ltte how many have sought asylum?
    At the expense of CBK’s PA & MR’s UPFA, how many have sought asylum?
    ” HULA” too can seek asylum as well now.

    In here are opportunists are a hilarious bunch.
    Any muck is good enough to hang on.

    no body knows how much we suffered from LTTE terrorist war, some people try to get benefit from it, like this guy wants to enter some other country for his own happiness. this cant be true story. and these people make big story bcs they want to get political vote for their party. all are thinking their own benefit. no body don’t know how LTTE terrorist kills their own people. like us, I am Tamil and this LTTE terrorist killed my family and use my kids for war.. i have the pain.. u guys don’t know about it. Lucky sri lanka government help me to give good life.. don’t blame government they work very hard to solve this matter, they thinking about Tamils. we are against LTTE terrorist.

      You are full of it. GOSL has done far worse than LTTE to Tamils and continues to do so. –Vast majority of Tamils have no love for GOSL , as proven by Northern Provincial Council elections.–This is why I highly doubt you are Tamil, or you are one of those Douglas Devananda stooges. –If you were Tamil, you would know that your first name should spell
      ” Chandran ” and not ” Chrandran “.

    This is another bogus asylum case.Do you think how many asylum seekers are genuine according to solicitors in the UK. 90% of asylum cases based on fabricated stories.Some of them are charging to prepare statement to produce with document to the UK Border Agency(Home Office) 1000 to 2000 pounds cash from this claimants.National ID,Birth Certificate,Police complaint some of Magistrate court proceedings from Sri Lanka courts,Lawyers letters. Medical reports,News paper reports or any documents you can get from Sri Lanka.London Tamil law firms Briston,East Ham,Very famous for this matters.Therefore most of the Sinhalese asylum seekers open their cases from this firms.I think UK authorities properly check this asylum cases they have take very seriously change their procedures in relation to 1951 Geneva Convention, it is very old one and so many weak sections.They should introduce to claim should based on their country of origin mission to check the well founded persecution face by those applicant.Today theirs no such thing happening.In that case no asylum seekers (bogus)claim to be successes.Otherwise asylum claims may drop to 1000 cases for a year.But Western politicians not encouraged this procedure because they may loose their votes from this people.Most of the votes they are relying on ethnic minority population.This a 100% sure bogus asylum case that’s why first year and upper court both has refused this case. But British diaspora Lawyers wants to take unexpected publicity from matter.It is very clear.

    Mr. ARS had only 7 years in the SL police force. After 4 years he was given the job to abduct Tamil people. Did he have previous experience in abducting people(Tamils or Others).I wouldn’t believe that the government will give a such a position to a guy who could betray them. There have been asylum seeking Sinhalese people since nineteen eighties. Most of them are in Australia.

    It is clear the UK authorities did not buy the ex-policeman’s story and wanted him deported back to Sri Lanka. Supporters of the regime must ask themselves if the UK authorities were correct in their judgement or not.

    UK may have ruled the world, now they thinking ONLY on selfish lines, ” FOR our benefit” to heck with others…. Most who have been granted asylum already had filed for bogus cases… IF they re open the files, most who were granted asylum that ended up in obtaining Citizenship would have to be revoked…. Britain seem to have been gullible, whether it be Tamil, Sinhalese or even Muslims….who claimed asylum were economic refugees who had the means to pay human smugglers… then live on the dole while work under the table… may be a reason why recession hit UK…
