‘Sri Lanka’s War Criminal Will Join The Queen At The Taxpayer-Funded Meal’, Make Sure This Doesn’t Happen– Says Sri Lanka Campaign

By Colombo Telegraph –

“The celebrations will be long, grand, and varied, and one of the flagship events will be a private luncheon in London on the 6th of June with the Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary … and a war criminal….The President of Sri Lanka, Mahinda Rajapaksa, a man against whom the UN have found credible allegations of responsibility for the murder of 40,000 civilians, and who leads a government that oversaw the disappearance of 32 people this March alone, will join the Queen and other heads of state at the taxpayer-funded meal.”

“You can help make sure this doesn’t happen” they further says.

Below we give their request in full;

Dear friends,

This year, Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her diamond jubilee, to mark sixty years as monarch and head of the commonwealth. The celebrations will be long, grand, and varied, and one of the flagship events will be a private luncheon in London on the 6th of June with the Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary … and a war criminal.

The President of Sri Lanka, Mahinda Rajapaksa, a man against whom the UN have found credible allegations of responsibility for the murder of 40,000 civilians, and who leads a government that oversaw the disappearance of 32 people this March alone, will join the Queen and other heads of state at the taxpayer-funded meal.

This is no way to celebrate a jubilee.

The Government of Sri Lanka were rightly taken to task by the UN Human Rights Council, both for their failure to address accountability for past crimes, and their continued use of torture and oppression. They responded in typically belligerent fashion by redoubling their attacks on independent journalists and human rights defenders. It is therefore absolutely vital that at this key moment the international community keep the pressure on. This is not the moment to treat the President of Sri Lanka to pomp and pageantry — nor should the Queen be forced to spend her jubilee posing for photos with a man who should be indicted for mass murder.

You can help make sure this doesn’t happen

The British Royal Family has recently introduced ways for you to give them your opinions. We can and should use these channels to tell them that the Queen should be celebrating her jubilee in the company of war criminals.

This is the form that the Royal Household has set up to send a message to the Queen — please use it to register your disgust at President Mahinda’s presence. A sample message is provided at the end of this email.

The Royal household is very sensitive to negative publicity around the jubilee. There is a good chance that this will be successful but, even if he does come, it is important that we register our strong objection. At least President Mahinda will not be able to portray his visit as a public relations triumph.

The jubilee should not be about torture and mass murder. Please send the Queen that message today.

Kind regards,

The Sri Lanka Campaign

PS. Please spread the word about this campaign to friends and family. You can use the website we have set up to do this. If you use social media you can also send the Queen the message on Facebook, on twitter (by messaging her, using the hashtag #diamondjubilee or both) or by liking or retweeting the messages we have sent.

Sample message:

Madam,

Congratulations on the sixtieth anniversary of your accession and sixty years as head of the Commonwealth. But please let me say I am sorry to learn that the President of Sri Lanka, Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa, has been invited to the anniversary luncheon on the 6th of June. Out of respect for the many victims of this man’s brutality I would ask you to think again.

President Rajapaksa led the 2009 campaign against the Tamil Tigers in which around 40,000 innocent civilians were killed. A UN panel found there were credible allegations that he was responsible for war crimes. He has presided over a government that has overseen the murder of 35 journalists with no effective investigation. This March alone his security forces did nothing to prevent, and in many cases were complicit in, 32 disappearances. UN investigations show that torture is endemic throughout Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka is still trying to heal. The President of Sri Lanka is hindering this process and the international community is finally and rightly starting to take him to task over this. But all that work risks being undone if he is fêted at events such as yours. Please reconsider.

The Sri Lanka Campaign for Peace and Justice

    Let’s get this straight..This Colombo Telegraph is the peacetime Tamilnet, is it?

      Don’t talk through your hat.

      TamilNet is still functioning with its racist and unprofessional articles.

      TamilNet build castles in the air – giving bogus hope to Tamils that Eelam will be born soon.

      Current TamiNet editor is a JSC qualified village boy from Jaffna, so you will have to excuse him for English and journalism.

      Concerning TamilNet, we must give credit to our good friend who was killed by UNKNOWN killer.

      Its believed that one deputy minister knows the person who gave the last hit to Sivaram Taraki!

      This scene can been seen in the mobile phones of certain individuals.

      This why this deputy minister talks more against the Tamils than any Singhalese racist. It is a long story. Currently you can see this man in night clubs and bars.

      Wait until a regime change in Sri Lanka

        LOL..you talk some waffle, don’t you? Tamilnet [Edited out] terrorism that killed 100,000 innocent people over 30 years and you worry about their deputy bloody editor? Give us a break chappy. Regime change??..you are funny. Fonseka also acted like you in 2010 during the election campaign. Looking thorugh a sieve in Colombo he thought he could easily win, had no clue as to what the majority suburbs’ views were. Like the Wikileaks revealed, Fonseka and his financial advisors (Ranil and De Silva) made an abortive effort to take the people for a ride then.How could you trust them now? So if you are waiting for a regime change, be prepared, it will quite possibly be a very long wait!

    CT are you sure of your slogan”In journalism truth is a process”?How about labeling the Tamil Tiger terrorists as “Holy fathers and nuns”?Or CT you could propose the name of that monster Prabakaran for the Nobel peace prize.Or even you could identify the Tamil Tiger terrorists as the world’s #1 human rights organization.
    Whats this crappy Srilanka Campaign?Is it an outlet emanating from the Global Terror Front(GTF)?Pl be kind enough to let me know the names of the buggers in Srilanka Campaign.We are short of Tamil coolies to be employed as scavengers.
    It is the same buggers who wants to re conciliate with us,eh!Reconciliation we’ll give in Nandikadal style.Re conciliation?Bugger off you Tamil Tiger criminals!
    By the way haven’t that Alice in wonderland prime minister the terrorist Rudrakumaran being invited?How about the fraud priest Emanuelle?I am made to understand that there’s a shortage of kitchen help at the palace.Hope that Rudrakumaran and the GTF will take up the job of dish washing.The Queen is also on the lookout for toilet cleaners.I am sure that GTF will help her with supplying a few Tamil toilet scavengers.After all scavenging is the monopoly of the Tamil Tiger terror thugs.

      Hey Max man,Didn’t you read the news??? what is Sri Lanka Campaign is there; http://srilankacampaign.org
      FYI
      From about us;
      The situation in Sri Lanka is bad and getting worse. Sri Lankans of all ethnicities are suffering under a Government which allows journalists and human rights activists to be disappeared or tortured and which intimidates all its critics into silence. Meanwhile much of the north and east of the country has still not recovered from the long lasting civil war. Both sides, the Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE, committed serious war crimes and it appears over 40,000 people, mostly civilians, lost their lives. Yet the Government’s refusal to investigate what happened, or to hold either side to account, works against the prospects for a lasting peace.
      We are a multi-ethnic non-partisan group who campaign for a just and lasting peace in Sri Lanka based upon accountability and respect for human rights. We are not affiliated with any political or ethnic group inside or outside of Sri Lanka, and we exist to fight for the rights of all those living in Sri Lanka.
      We campaign across the world, at every level, to draw attention to the problems in Sri Lanka, to spread information about the situation, and to help Sri Lankans and the international community to bring pressure to bear on the Government of Sri Lanka so that all Sri Lankans can look forward to a future where justice, rights and reconciliation are the norm.

      Max. You really have lost it this time. Attacking CT, Rudra K, and 80 year old priest Emmanuel. Too bad. The issue here is one war criminal invited to the celebration, since he is the head of state, and the state terrorist. What the HR activist will do is highlight the war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated in SL last 7 years, and the racist-chauvinist riots and pogroms.

      40,000 to 100,000 civilian deaths is a huge number for the 21st century. Yes, all the Singhala Buddhist-chauvinist disagree and are outraged about the numbers and so are the Tamils. That is the reason there should be an independent international credible investigations. That will permanently resolve the numbers question and also how they died. That would also include usage of chemical weapons and illegal ones (If used). So it is a great opportunity for Sri Lanka and the Singhalese to clear their name.

      The protest against the war criminals and the Rajapakses are unavoidable. So do not get excited, and get worked up. Nobody can stop it as the Tamils seek justice, truth and accountability.

      Without which there will be no peace, prosperity or reconciliation. No Tamil has called for reconciliation FYI. It is not in their vocabulary, and the way you guys write, it only provides the motivation for the Tamils to not be lazy, wake up, and expose the war criminals as loud as possible. Too bad for the WC’s that they cannot bring their white vans or tanks to London.

      You recall what happened to Rajapakse the last time he was in London. He had to put his little tail between his tail and run to take off at the middle of the night like a Hambantota “thief”. (Hora). This time there will be over hundreds of head of states, and media to watch the performance. Even Singhalese supporters of Fonseka and the UNP will be showing their ………….. to Rajapakse.

      Don’t forget that 300,000 Tamils were cruelly and inhumanely incarcerated in several concentration camps for over a year. There were many incidents of torture and rape as well as hundreds gone missing as well. (May be thousands??) Who in their right mind will be thinking of reconciliation when 300,000 concentration camp victims are there, 100,000 killed and missing, 60,000 injured, more than half a million homeless, and 260,000 homes and buildings destroyed!!!!!! And the Singhala Buddhist are busy building Buddhist temples on Tamil land by the hundreds? (And many more secret construction).

        Look at this Rubbish 40,000 t0 100,000 thousand… Bogus nimbers.. do you know why even the UN dares not tread these bogus and disputed numbers.. Given out by socalled Eelamist Human rights groups only… During Hiroshima a 15 kiloton of TNT Nuclear Bomb dropped in the middle of a City where the Kill rate was 60,000 civilians.. and Nagasaki 20 kiloton TNT plutonium Bomb in a built up city where 80,000 died.. these are minus Radiation after effects.. Now According to Janes defence.. The Lankan Forces.. and the type of conventional weaponery and these weapons compared to current weapons by US and nato forces are even less pwoerful.. and the Volume of the TNT is in fact a mathematical impossibility to achieve a 40,000 kill rate and espically given the the unconcentrated scattered ares of fighting, and espically when most of these wepaons was also used in the EASTERN theatre.. thus depleting more fire power.. Now compared to the FACTS of janes defence weekely and the conventional Fire power of the TNT used in two fronts of the Lankan war.. its a mathematical impossibility.. But the Lankan government cannot deny that civilians(held hostage by LTTE) wasnt killed.. Its a certainty…. Now we must come to the Millions of USD raised by the Eelamist movement which translated to Weapons on the Ground Used by the Eelamist Proxy the LTTE.. Light and Heavy weapons and the LTTE fighters who fought in two fronts in civilian uniforms and also the Suicide Bombers of the Black Tigers.. So where are the Figures of these???? No doubt mixed with the socalled 40,000 bogus civilian figures…

        Donald,I didn’t attack CT as you say.What i said was that giving your terror lord Prabakaran the Nobel peace prize is a good idea.So pl don’t try to play CT against me.You guys are experts in fishing in troubled waters,eh!Donald,that story of 400000 civilians being killed is too old.Since lately it seems that you all are concerned about civilians.How nice of you!How about when you terrorists hacked to death thousands of innocent civilians?We know what your game is.You collect money all round with the 400000 story.Why don’t you stick to your credit card fraud,drug trafficking,pimping in Soho,enterprises instead.Or is it that you want to turn legit?
        You buggers accuse a head of state,because it’s a case of sour grapes.No invitation for the poor Tamil Tigers,eh$Hak hak hak!But still you can enter the palace as scavengers,as a consolation.So you say that you are planning to do a repeat performance this time also?Do you know what the Britishers did last time?The MI5 fellows videoed you fellows and deported over 100 fellows overnight.You have become a real pain in the ass for the Brits.In public they will shake hands with you.But once you are out of the picture,they call you as Tamil coolies.Brown skinned Brits,eh!Donald,you have my personal attention.Pl hang around the back door of the palace.No sooner i see your muggy face i will smuggle in a Royal parcel of leftover food.Oh!by the way make sure that you have enough Tiger flags.Know why?The president’s entourage might need them to wipe their asses!Take it easy chum,SOUR GRAPES!

          Max! You did attack CT. Now you are backing off. That is fine with me. But I have a problem in you claiming that CT is a friend of yours? Whom are you kidding? Nobody even knows who you are and your real name and where you are from..
          You are such a loud mouth, with a sakili mouth, with no real identity. A big coward in other words…
          As for your other dirty, filthy, crude comments, it only shows your breeding. I would not dignify it with any further comments.
          The 100,000 number might be mind boggling for you all. The Bishop Rajappu had 146,467 as his number.
          That is why it is essential that there should be investigations. Period.
          You all are always missing the point and make false and fraudulent personal attacks. You fellows have been doing it for 30 years.
          The issue is Rajapakse the alleged war criminal is a guest of the queen which he has a right being the President of Sri Lanka, a member of the UN and the commonwealth. The British Tamils too have a democratic right to protest the visit, in any legal form they may chose to do. Name calling will not change anything but motivate them more.
          As for the coolies and prostitutes we all know who they are. It is the Bolawathies who are slaving in the middle mainly from the South, and I do not want to get into the details, since they are doing it out of sheer poverty. Rajapakses in 7 years could not alleviate the poverty, and pushing more than 2 million housemaids into the middle east. That is the sad thing. That number is more than the entire Tamil population in the North and the East.
          That jealousy motivates the Rajapakses to destroy 260,000 Tamil homes in one year, kill 100,000 Tamils, incarcerate 300,0000 under cruel and inhuman conditions in concentration camps and lie about the resettlement.
          Read the DOS HR report on Sri Lanka.
          Also the Amnesty International report for 2011 on SL.
          I hope that will bring/put some sense into the Mattayas from Mattala. (I sincerely doubt it).
          The UN report says “tens of thousands of Tamils were killed). That itself means more than ten thousand and less than 90,000.
          Why is Sri Lanka so scared of an independent investigations?
          The Truth?
          Send General Fonseka to the US to testify with the DOJ, DHS and DOS. Why are the war criminals and state terrorist hiding?

          Donald,for god sake don’t repeat the same thing over and over again.Where did i claim that CT is my friend?Pl quote.Have you got your wires crossed?Hope that next time you will not say that i said that Prabakaran was my friend!
          It seems that my innocent comments had got you screaming from the roof tops.I know it is a Herculean task for a terrorist to turn civilian.You banked exclusively on violence, and with the elimination of your terror machine,you are all at sea.Thus now have taken a U turn and pretending to be human rights activists.A terrorist is always a terrorist.Are you a terrorist or a human rights activist as you claim?Donald,you are a terrorist with your pants down.Only an idiot will believe your human rights activist bogey.When the Tamil Tiger(now Hyena)terror machine was in full swing,did you scream that the Tamil Tiger terrorists were violating human rights? When the bellies of innocent Sinhalese pregnant mother’s were cut open by you Tamil Tiger monsters did you scream about human rights?Of course not!How can you when you were in the middle of such orgies?What you did was you licked the blood on the swords in true vampire style.Bloody monsters now uttering of human rights!If you were not a terrorist,then why didn’t you condemn such inhuman criminal acts?Tell me in which newspaper or website you talked of the human rights of those helpless women.Give us the names and dates of such newspapers and websites.Donald,you can’t fool all the people all the time.Cut out your human rights bogey.You are nothing but a blood thirsty monstrous terrorist.Human rights my ass!

        DIDN’T YOU REMEMBER 1971 AND 1988 J.V.P ROIRS?

        How the governmet crushed them.
        IN both roits more than 80,000 sinhalees youths kill by the government.Did any investigation took place on behalf of them?
        It is natural because they are tororists. It immaterials that calculating wether they arsinhala or tamils.

      Antone Balasingham’s knows nothing but pretends like he knows everything within the LTTE.

    How can LTTE sympathizers complain about MR and Co?. Their God fathers who ethnically cleansed northern Sri Lankan Muslim 1990. Still most of them are in the refugee camps. How about Eastern Province massacres by LTTE?, one of the worst in the Human history. Most of these criminals are still hiding in the west. I personally agree that there may be atrocities committed by Sri Lankan Armed forces but Sri Lankan Tamil community has no right question them, because they fought a war with world most brutal killers=LTTE.

    Yes My Dear Tamil Diaspora friends.Our War hero who crushed the Bastard Prabakaran’s bloody 30 Yrs of one man show,is definitely going to have a Right Royal Dinner with the Queen.For the Tamil Diaspora friends,to get an Invitation for the Dinner at a Palace,first you must have a Country of Tamil Origin and that is Tamil Nadu(CHENNAI) In INDIA.First get it separated from India,then apply to the UN to recognize as a separate,free Member Country in the World Body.We will either propose or second the Motion at UN as Sri-Lankan Tamils are living for centuries as brothers with Sinhalese & Muslims in Sri-Lanka. I know that you have a reasonable Jealousy towards Sri-Lanka & specially against Sinhalese 15 Million population as they have a Country,a National Flag & a National Anthem,where as with a world wide population of over 80 Million Tamils including 55 Million in CHENNAI,Tamil Diasporians don’t have any of these things.That is why I said that your JEALOUSLY is not totally UNREASONABLE.

    TAMIL friends who are collecting DOLLARS from the innocent,Migrated Tamils promising a TAMIL ELAM in SRI-LANKA know very well that it will never happen as long as the present World exists but for their survival with collected RANSOMS. Long live Tamil Diasporians with very luxury Living Styles as INNOCENT TAMILS living and working hard in Europian Countries are financing you,day dreaming of a Tamil Ealam in Sri-Lanka.

      Prabhakaran has better breeding than ………..
      His parents led an exemplary life and still died with dignity, although imprisoned in Panagoda for years.
      Prabhakarans wife and young children were brutally murdered by the psychopaths. That was indeed part of the war crimes which has been well documented.
      Prabhakaran is revered by millions worldwide, both when he was alive and in death. That is the bare fact, and not like President Rajapakse who is vilified and humiliated worldwide, hardly respected despite his most powerful position the last 3 years. Why? Think about it.
      Prabhakaran was not a commission kakka, and involved in bribery and corruption, amassing great wealth for his brothers, sisters, family, friends and relatives. Whose money by the billions they are stealing from a $59 Billion dollar economy? Give it some thought before you fellows write rubbish.
      The LTTE is not on trial or being investigated. The rubbish you all write, or the public speeches made by some racist politicians are irrelevant to this world. The issue is the War Crimes and Crimes Against humanity and whether the IC will investigate and bring justice to the victims and perpetrators. Nobody, is expecting for the the GOSL to conduct real and honest investigations and bring justice to anybody. Treating the Singhala JVP in 1971, and 1989 is an example and 100,000 Singhala youth were murdered. Most of them were innocent. Do you fellows care? It was Rajapakse with the help of a young Tamil lady Tamara Kunanayagam in Geneva complained to the UN in 1989…. Ha Ha!!!

    I was just wondeering. It was only a few years ago our holy, peaceful
    monks went on the rampage against Britain and insisted on reparations for what they did to this country that they colonised for a century and half. They called them names on many occasions and, predictably, carried on a rowdy demo or two in front of the UK Embassy at Galle Rd,
    Kollupitiya – all in the name of undiluted Lankan Buddhist Patriotism.

    Now what is their position when the leader of the Coalition through which they are in the Cabinet – is planning a Tamasha with the imperialist, colonial regent.

    The cat is out of the bag now as CT makes clear which side it’s editors are on. I do give credit for allowing divergent views in the comments, and for once it is now just the usual suspects whinging about “oppression” or “genocide”. Similar to the Palestinian terror diaspora, masters at manipulation of public opinion.

    MR is no villain but he is no hero either. The “heroes” are the SLA soldiers who suffered for so long to try to rid the country of the cancer within that is Tamil terrorism and separatism. But the patient is far from cured, the tumor is just in remission thanks to Gota’s War (I’ve ordered the book but it must be shipped from Sri Lanka). SLA troop levels in Jaffna city are inadequate based on my experience there last month.

      So you recommend additional troops in Jaffna city?
      Have you read almost daily reports of what the SLA troops are doing in the North? The number of abductions, rape looting etc..
      Do you know Gota fled the island in fear of the LTTE war and took shelter in USA (your country! if your pseudo name is genuine)
      and returned to the island to share the loot when his brother became President (by dubious election results)?

    CT you have been praised so widely only few days ago for your unbiased journalism.Now you let all these racist uneducated thugs to run wild accusations with their filthy hands and their filthy mouths . How could you allow that?. Are you from the same gutters as they are??????Please censor the racists views of these racists. Sri lanka is for all the nationalities who had lived there for centuries. Lets have an educated argument not like these ferals . What happened to Idi Amin? racism and extremism is a kind of PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER LEADS TO EVENTUAL PSYCHOPATHIC DISORDER. Now CT please do not give into these psychos.Just have a decent debate as an intelligent educated human being. Not like some of the comments you allowed above. You are in charge so DO IT.

      sakvithi,
      CT allows all comments, even in unparlimentary language, from apparently mentally deranged individuals who only denegrate themselves by descending into the gutter.
      They do this as they cannot counter facts and opinions expressed, in civilised language, of which they are ignorant.
      This is as it should be, as such persons’ upbringing and education are exposed to all of us writing here.

      About MR attending the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations,even Mugabe of Zimbabwe will be invited I think.
      MR is on the same level.
      The list of invitees is prepared by the British Prime Minister and his advisers.The Queen will not interfere.

        Well said Sakvithi. Now it known worldwide that Sri Lanka Practices State Terrorism. CT definitely should do a better job in censoring filthy, dirty and crude comments from people like Mad Max. I presume he has limited time.
        The issue is not LTTE. The issue in the US and UN is the State Terrorist, War Crimes, and Crimes Against Humanity. Tamils can easily talk about the atrocities committed from the riots of 1958, 1961, 1977, and 1983, all sponsored by the government. There is a difference between a government and a rebel organization.

        These morons pretend as if Singhalese did not torture, rape, beat, attack, burn, shell, bomb, and kill by the thousands every year from 1983. These cover up’s won’t work. The apologist for the war criminals, and state terrorist will screw the country further. They can join the JVP and JHU and keep protesting and fasting as well as scream their empty heads off.

    Dear Members of The Royal Family of GB.

    Being a Tamil living in NY, USA, with great regrets inform u, our Tamil community, Tamil Diaspora & the strong members of the Tamil Forum in the UK are hidden LTTE supporters who sent billions of STGP to LTTE during war in Sri Lanka, now acting as clean. If u & yr govt is still like to see true democracy, pl first investigate about these people, who are having great plans to ask a piece of land in The UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada,etc. Be watchful. I thought to write this to bring this to the information of all levels, if these ruthless gang starts demanding separate states in other countries the Tamil people like us who are living in UK, USA, Canada for more than 40 yrs also will be in trouble. So, pl take immediate action against the key players pf Tamil Forum in UK.

          Again well said Sakvithi. No point wasting time with the Mad fellows who have proved their insanity. That is what we have explained to the international community and now they begin to understand and giving enough rope to the war criminals and state terrorist to hang themselves.
          We all know what happened to Idi Amin, Ghadaffi, Saddam Hussein, the leaders of Cambodia, Rwanda, Yugoslavia, Egypt, Tunisia, Congo, Sudan and Zimbabwe,to just mention a few.
          Sadly the ruin the country as well. Rajapakses will never escape and all their crimes will catch up. Karma is a bitch.

    Dear All,

    We should stop finger pointing each other and try to build one powerful nation in the spirit of genuine power-sharing. Do not trust any non-democratic action, party or person. We all need a sustainable world live in peace and harmony. What is the point of killing any group and surveying only my self, my party and my family. We must think out side the box and look creating a new world that all people could live happily in our mother land. Do not try to take any political gains think about the sustainability remove all convicts and thugs from politics.

    @Max. For the Singhala Buddhist, racist, chauvinist, extremist, jingoist all the human rights activist are “Terrorist” or bought up by the “terrorist”. Now the IC realizes who the real terrorist are. The GOSL itself, are the State Terrorist and War Criminals.
    That would not have happened if people like us Tamils did not expose the gross human rights violations, cruel, and inhuman brutalities exposed, as well as the war crimes and crimes against humanity.
    We have done that for many years and as as a matter of fact for 30 years since 1983 riots, and I am proud of it.
    The lobbying, canvassing and meeting all the people concerned of human rights, and prevention of war crimes and Genocide, was no easy task. There is mountains of work still to be done and we will continue to do it, immaterial of the name calling.
    You buggers can bark as much as you want, like rabid pariah dogs.
    What we do is moral, ethical and legal. Too bad for you buggers.
    Your true colors are being exposed by yourselves and your filthy mouths.

      Donald thanx! for agreeing with me, CT should take a stand in not publishing mad dogs filth. Those who are so terrified of what will happen to them in the eventuality will go on disagreeing with any oppositions.They do not care if the country becomes a pariah state. For them the hangers on and the parasites have to go on barking until the doomes day gets them. Their pathetic word called TRAITORS has no meaning .Democracy and traitors does not go hand in hand in a democratic country. This is why I compare these people to IDI AMIN. Whether they are politicians or tails of the politicians their psychotic traits becomes serious when they cannot HEAR OR LISTEN to the wisdoms. Sad lot.

    This is fully biased that’s why Sinhalese never allowed these bullshits to mingle with. Rajapaksha may have done war crimes but if Prabhakaran is alive and invited to join, Who is he? He is a ruthless too. He also should be hanged. Mistakes may have made. We should get corrected them an queen is also in favour with Sri Lanka not Elam. Nowadays Elam is more needful for tamils existence in foreign countries. They are spending some from what they earn this is not the real problem and all the civic rights should be abolished tamils who are in abroad.

      IF HE IS A WAR CRIMINAL,STILL SHE HAS NO CHOICE SHE IS ACTING ACCORDING TO “ROYAL PROTOCOL” IN INVITING ALL HEADS OF STATE
      WE HAVE TO BLAME OURSELVES FOR HAVING HIM AS OUR HEAD OF STATE,-
