Successful Resolution And Sabotage By Tamil Stooges!

By S. V. Kirubaharan

With so many discussions, obstacles, sabotages and hidden agendas, the resolution on Sri Lanka in the 25th session of the Human Rights Council – HRC has finally gone though. Two days before the vote, as I predicted in an interview to one of the media, the final result was for the resolution ‘Yes’ 23; against the resolution ‘No’ 12; neither ‘yes nor no’, abstentions – 12.

In general, during the run-up to the voting, the observations made were that the resolution would go through. In fact more countries would have voted in favour, but four stooges who travelled all the way from Jaffna sabotaged it. Their position amounted to being in favour of Rajapaksa’s government.

These stooges suffered humiliating defeat in the last parliamentary (April 2010) elections in Sri Lanka and are now determined to damage the lives of Tamils who never voted for them.

In Geneva – Many states, International organisations and solidarity organisations were disappointed with these stooges, who presently live with the motto: “We don’t mind losing our noses, as long as it is a bad Omen for those who never voted for us”. There is no difference between their position and President Rajapaksa’s who says that “the people in the North and East never voted for me and why should I be bothered about them”.

The stooges sabotaged the lobby, side events and interventions in the HRC. Many witnessed it.

1 –Those who cannot read and understand a resolution were feeding venom to the Tamils, especially among the diaspora. Other than blaming the Tamil National Alliance – TNA for everything let those four stooges advice the Tamils of an alternative way in place of supporting this resolution.

2 – One of the champions of the ‘right to self-determination’ at home; registered his name in the HRC to speak under the agenda item 5. According to the Annotation to the agenda – A/HRC/25/, under item five – Human rights bodies and mechanisms, ‘Forum on Minority issues’ is one of the subjects. If this had been done by anyone from the Tamil National Alliance – TNA, these stooges would have spread the news of it like wild-fire.

Before May 2009, none of us ever spoke under this agenda item. Presently we speak under it as an opportunity for advancing our cause from zero to something better in the future. But we never pretend to the people that we are the ‘Guardian of the right to self-determination’.

But those who claimed they left the TNA because it never had the right to self-determination in their program were preparing to speak under Minority issues. This is real hypocrisy.

3 – However, as this agenda item was postponed to 20th March, this stooge could not speak in the plenary forum because the date clashed with one of their so-called press conferences.

4 – During the HRC, on Friday 20th March, there was a briefing organised by a pro-Rajapaksa organisation, “International Buddhist Foundation – IBF”. Right from the beginning of the 25th session, many knew in advance about this meeting. However every participant of the HRC knew about it, at least 3 days before it took place.

IBF meeting and the press conference

But these stooges organised a so-called press conference outside the UN building, on the same day, same hour that the IBF held its meeting in the UN building! This move created a scene. Out of nearly 40 Tamils, only 3 were able to attend this meeting. If Tamils fail to attend the IBF meeting, and fail to counter the IBF lies and unrealistic facts about the Tamil struggle, the Tamils’ time is wasted in the HRC. Anyone who does not know the situation in Sri Lanka and the North East of the island would get a wrong picture about the Tamil struggle.

It was well know that only three Tamils including myself attended this meeting. In fact, a TNA M.P. wanted to attend it but as I knew the outcome of this briefing, I advised him to stay away from it.

However, we three managed to debate and argue with the organisers with facts and figures – challenging the speakers. There was a Tamil who is a member of a paramilitary group living in Switzerland, who also spoke on behalf of the IBF.

Sabotage

5 – Press conferences can be held outside the UN building at any time during the year. But the IBF or any NGO cannot hold briefing meetings as and when they want to, in the UN building. It is a very rare opportunity for Tamils to prove the genuineness of the Tamil political struggle, to people within the UN building, especially in a meeting organised by the likes of IBF.

(a)  The quadruple stooges pre-planned their press conference very well, in order to ensure the IBF meeting went unchallenged.

(b)  If the date and time was so important for this press conference, let us ask ourselves, how many foreign or Swiss media covered it?

(c)  During their Press conference, a French pedagogue Mr Jean-Mari JULIA who received a “Chevalier” award from the French President raised many reasonable questions, about the stooges’ position and the future of the Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka. Immediately, the live telecasting of this press conference and all other local recording were switched off. From that time onwards, neither questions nor answers were shown to the public/ diaspora Tamils by any media.

(d)  Also one of the panellists said in this conference that “US should be congratulated for bringing this resolution”. This was also censured by these stooges.

These are the people who are questioning democracy within the TNA.

One of the famous lawyers from US said in her interview to a media that, ‘it was not a press conference, it was a seminar’!

Division

With all these ups and downs, these stooges managed to show delegates in the UN that a section of the Tamils are against this resolution. This made a few countries presume that when there is an objection from the Tamils themselves and the Sri Lankan government; why they should support a resolution against Sri Lanka!

These states never knew the fact that these stooges represent only 5000 people and they have the support of only a handful of diaspora who can’t think and act freely.

These stooges must listen to the deliberations before and after the vote, of States like Pakistan, China, Cuba and others, to know the value of this resolution on Sri Lanka.

Some told us that their policy is very simple. Since these people were defeated by the TNA, they oppose anything and everything that is supported by the TNA.

In fact, they did nothing productive nor constructive for the Tamils, other than finding fault with the TNA. If anyone doubts this, they can refer to many Press conferences they held in the past.

In conclusion, I would like to say that out of nearly 40 to 50 Tamils who attended the 25th session of the HRC, a few work directly or indirectly for Rajapaksa’s government. Some work with institutions which collect information about the Tamils. Everyone will realise these facts soon.

If this resolution had failed, would these stooges have been in a position to safeguard the Tamils from the impending danger of full-scale Sinhalisation in the North and East?

There is a proverb in Tamil, “as long as there are people to be fooled; people who fool them also remain”.

Sovereignty and integrity

In the resolution, which was indeed successfully passed, one of the preamble paragraphs refers to the sovereignty, independence and integrity of Sri Lanka. Whether this is mentioned or not, every UN resolution contains this policy as a matter of course.

After all, Russia walked into Ukraine with no concern for the sovereignty, independence and integrity of Ukraine. Sri Lanka supported the Russian position. Therefore this paragraph can be considered null and avoid.

The resolution was watered down, especially because of the activities of the stooges mentioned earlier. They gave extra leverage to the hands of those who wanted to protect Sri Lanka from this resolution.

Anyone who claims that they studied law or teaches law, should get some lessons from experts on how to read and understand UN resolutions.

If anyone is ready to discuss or debate on the successfully passed resolution in any media, there are many waiting to participate in such discussions.

Some predicted that, now the task of these stooges is to find fault with the implementation of this resolution.

Many were highly disappointed with the Indian position in the final voting and also their vote along with Pakistan, China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela and OIC countries for suspending the discussion on this resolution and for the removal of operational paragraph 10.

Even without a positive Indian vote, the resolution has gone through. But the speech made by the Indian Ambassador, before the vote in the HRC was an exaggerated version, motivating other states to change their decision. Has the USA now proved that they can manage anything and everything in that region without the help of India, Pakistan and China?

      Don’t insult a decent man like DBSJ, you mongrel. You, as an animal moved by hatred against the Sinhalese, are not qualified to call DBSJ an idiot and a fool. You are only proving your low birth.

      As to your master Kirubaharan’s last question “Has the USA now proved that they can manage anything and everything in that region without the help of India, Pakistan and China?”, the answer is clear.

      His ignorance does not let him see that India is not fooled by American “friendly” approaches anymore and this is the biggining of the end. India and Pakistan were united in opposition to Tamil treachery assisted by the US and UK. We will chase the Yankee thieves from South Asia.

      Your’s (and Kirubaharan’s) hatred will take you to hell, just like it took your hero Pirapaharan to hell.

Bankrupt and hanging off the tails of other LTTE emigres for money.. people like you and S. V. Kirubaharan cant even afford to feed a dog let alone say you will help Tamils. You LTTE emigres like your dead uneducated leader cant handle the fact there are many many tamils who represent a different view that contradicts S. V. Kirubaharan racist views and the LTTE emigres. What will S. V. Kirubaharan when the Money Runs out?? from the LTTE Emigre’s.. Sell Sri Lankan Made Goods in the western nations.. (still its honest work)

          To many of us who visit this website. yours is a mere allegation which does not stand the test of proof because you have not adduced any evidence how much he was paid nor have you produced his bank statement certified by the manager of DBSJ’ bank,
          As such what you have said cannot be taken even with a pinch of salt.Your allegation is similar to Kirubaksran’s in not naming the four stooges.

Kirubaharan mR dbs j PRESENTS THE WHOLE PICTURE OF ALL SIDES.. tHIS LTTE EMIGRE S. V. Kirubaharan SOUNDS LIKE THE RELEIC OF THE PRABAKARAN ERA.. WHERE CERTAIN TAMIL’S OPPOSED THE BRUTAL NATURE OF THE LTTE WERE CALLED TRAITORS AND LAMP-POSTED IN JAFFNA TOWN.. WE ALL REMEMBER THOSE SCENES..NOW THE GUTTER S. V. Kirubaharan WHO ARGUES FOR ONE-SIDED DEMOCRACY BUT SUPPORTED THE NAZI- TOTALITARIAN REGIME OF THE LTTE CANNOT HANDLE THE FACT THAT WHEN OTHER TAMILS SAY .. YES THERE ARE CRIMINALS ALSO AMONG TAMILS AS WELL WHO HAVE BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS. And the Gutter also mentions Russia and Ukraine.. Which by the way sri lanka took a neutral stand. buy according to him argues that some parts of the UNHCR are valid but not the others and see the Russian illegal annexation as a Justification to break all laws..which mind you the west opposed.. I am glad there are people like this Gutter who write articles as such.. So people can see how the LTTE emigres manipulate Int Bodies and call others who oppose their views traitors.. The world this LTTE emigre living in the comfort in the west cant even say.. He is a Typical Tamil [Edited out] the worst who shouted from the comfort of his western home for others to fight and die on his behalf. As a sinhalese many respect the Ground LTTE troops who fought..Unlike these LTTE Emigre Scum wannabe arm chair patriots.

      Where is Kirubha and his lying mates. Last Sunday edition of Veerakesari gives the other side of the story as to what transpired. No wonder Kirubha you were in a hurry to write such articles to put a case before hand. You can’t fool all the people all the time Kirubha!!

    Why are you afraid of mentioning the name of the “stooges” and those who wrecked the Tamil cause in Geneva? Your article in parables merely
    confuses matters – exacerbated by your lack of articulation. Please let the Tamil public know through these pages who the bad eggs within are.

        Ram,

        If S.V. Kirubaharan refers here to Gajan Ponnambalam, Kumaravadivel Guruparan and Krishna Saravanamuttu as “3 stooges” my consideration for Kiruba and what he stands for will suffer. They are educated young men, well versed in the laws and able to articulate the Tamil position convincingly to any audience in the world – to the highest levels of proper pleading. No Broken English or indications of a poor education in them. Kiruba is welcome to disagree with their political stand but he cannot trash them in the way he does. This business of “the only voice to speak for the Lankan Tamil Nation” is far too undemocratic and despotic. Let us get out of that fascistic mindset and let a fresh breeze of wind flow in the quest for peace and security to the Tamil people.

        By the way, as I recall Gajendran P did not contest the last Elections. Where is the charge of losing here?

          Hooker, Isn’t it absolutely hilarious that this stooge is calling those who chose to voice their opinions in a democratic setting as stooges. Isn’t it amazing that this stooge while demanding human rights for tamils then turns against his very own kind and denies their most fundamental right of freedom of expression and freedom of association. Isn’t it amazing that this stooge believes that the number of votes a person received at an election dictates who has the right to voice their views on human rights at an international forum. Isn’t it amazing this stooge believes that a person who received 5000 votes does not have a voice to represent the views of those 5000 no matter how small a number that is. While pointing out the 5000 votes as small it is the same stooge then goes on to talk about minority, yes minority rights!.

          Kiruba is the stooge. I have known Kiruba for a long time for his good work in HR. But in recent times it became clear to me that Kiruba is hell bent on having a louder voice for him self. To that end one day he will write on Tamilwin praising the Paris Criminal who extorted money and went to jail as a freedom fighter while another day he will parade on CT calling others stooges. Mara is trying to ban tamil organisations as stooges. And it is a pitty this stooge failed to recognise we are all stooges to GoSL.

            I am pleased with your comments “I have known Kiruba for a long time for his good work in HR..” This is no time to division amongst us and quarrelling because “the enemy” is elsewhere and is
            planning against us. This is the time to close ranks and take
            advantage of the favourable conditions the world has created
            for us.

          Hooker is a trouble maker, enjoys problems.

          Young educated men well versed in law and articulate to any audience in the world,

          You too must be having all these qualities.

          Did Pirapaharan had all the above qualities?

          People like Amirthalingam, Neelan Thiruchelvam, Kathiragamar had all those qualities that you have mentioned here.

          In other words, these young educated men well versed in law and articulate to any audience in the world are also going to bury the Tamil cause with all their qualities like Kathiragamar, Amirthalingam, Neelan Thiruchelvam and Ananthasangari. Is that so?

          “I recall Gajendran P did not contest the last Elections. Where is the charge of losing here?”

          Before you defend Gajendran P, you should know his biography.

            I wish to disagree with Ponnuthurai. If your hero VP had 25% of learning many brilliant Tamils will be alive today together with
            lakhs of civilians and we would have had a NEP run by Tamils.
            By the late 1990s he should have agreed to one of the many peace proposals that were on his table. But by then he was stung by illusionary grandeurs of the 1st modern Tamil Emperor and like,
            Bonaparte and Hitler, thought he was invincible.

            It might interest you to know Gajen’s parents are my close friends. Kumar was on the phone with me at 8/30 in the morning and in an hour from then a common friend called me to tell Kumar’s dead body lies in a car at Ramakrishna Road. Yoga knows the story.

    @Kiruba. Good article.
    But you should name the names of the stooges and the notorious attorney from the US.

    We who demand freedom of speech and thought advocating freedom of the press would want the stooges and traitors exposed.

      Yes name them Kiruba. Name and shame is the name of the game. We must take measures to ensure infighting among the Tamil diaspora. The GOSL has done a commendable job splitting the the local Tamils in various factions. Now Kiruba is about to do the same for the overseas kind.

      SV Kirubaharan,
      Please name them. There is nothing to be diplomatic or decent about
      traitors. If they are in Mara’s payroll they are certainly traitors not only for the Tamils but traitors of the country.

      Mara is apparently very upset after the recent double blow the resolutiuon and as well as the PC elections drawback. It could be begining of the end finally. Lets keep hammering left right and centre until the enemy is dead.
      What I hear is if there is a united opposition Mara will be history pretty soon. According to some unofficial survey those 40% unpolled votes were all against this despot. There are lot of unhappy army personals too who backed Gen SF this time round.

      Lets free SL from the Gonraja as fast as possible.

      We need unite RW+Sumanthiran+Gen SF+Anurakumara with CBK on a side to break the SLFP into two.

        JVP has promised would never again be part of a coalition.

        Pandukabaya@
        But I believe, if things would go even worst in the months to come, JVPrs will have change their opinions in order to save the nation. So as Jayasooriya hinted that a coalition can remove the most dangerous man from the scene.

        There is no doubt that SF would help CBK atonce. And there will also be more from UPFA that stay currently in silent mode, not being able to digest the waging of ballah in power. There are enough examples of govts that changed their stand drastically than one ever thought. So, I really dont think that MR can perform well towards his presidential eleciton in 2016.
        If it moves to the very same manner as it is of today, Muslim congress would have to join the opposition for their p survival.

          Seela J, I agree.
          SLFP seniors are a bunch of eunuchs. Not even suitable for Bullock carts. Still the buggers are praising Mara in every TV interviews. Better leave them a side till they perish.

          AKD is a superb orator who could turn the poverty ridden people towards his favour, which is so vital at this stage since the country’s majority are the poor, provided JVP comes to a common stage. Otherwise however much the JVP talk for the poor, the people are sceptical because of JVP’s history and it doesnt have a good administration to govern. We dont need another UPEA governance in the form of JVP.
          If the JVP is serious in chasing Mara for good, they have to change their policies for the sake of the country. I am pretty sure that JVP might support Mara if or when they know that UNP start gaining its lost popularity. I hope iam wrong.

          Gen SF said that he would support a common opposition but the question is would the JVP? SLMC is in a fix. Rauf Hakim has been framed. 80% Muslims dont vote for them in any case and we dont need a Muslim Cogress now according to my Muslim friends.

          The most positive, the most interesting fact about the last PC election was the Galle electorate out come. Winning Galle is a big victory itself although Galle used to be a UNP strong hold in the past like Kandy, Matale, Gampola, Nuwaraeliya, Kurunegala so on. Twenty16 would be a Golden year. Lets hope for the best.

            a significant achievement.
            Gankabaraya lost 10% with 55-60 votes polled.
            In two years time it will increase to 40%.

              “I am for an elite government. My main wish is to get our beautiful Ceylon back…” Lovely thoughts. Millions think along these lines today. It is time to save the country from the Rajapakses. The other scourge is the opportunistic mob of political monks who should be behind the walls of the Vihara – not in the streets.

              How do we get about this. Will the pusillanimous wimp Ranil keep his word by leading the people in the streets. But how?

        Gonraja will have to face all the hurdles in the months to come.

        With the resolutions imposed against his regime, it is already started whoever whatever has been added to this and other forums.
        He is not at all capable of bringing diplomatic tracks back into the levels that country enjoyed then. His only is focused, Belarus, Swasziland and several bunkrupt states also incl. far low level middle HR violator countries. How can they even think of booming economy by making EU countries enemies. Nothing has brought though billions were spent on CHOGEM circus, though their target was to get them attracted. If at least one single country supported the Island, one could see it other way around. But to this day, the country is identified with Syria, North korea and several other undemocratic nations.
        But I still raise it – why CW nations allow him to handle their chair amidsst all these blamages coming on him. Is that not shame for those CW states to look back in the future.

          Siri,
          This anti west syndrome started with Bandaranayaka and then with his wife and now with this megalomania lunatic.
          They all love to beg. They hate Classy people. They loathe the elite. Those who vote for them love to be in a queue to get a loaf of bread or a litre of Kerosene.
          They love to rename road names with their own. Anything from China, Cuba, Russia is invaluable to them.
          This is what SLFP/PA/UPFA is all about.

          Now with power Mara and his offsprings seen the out side world are totally confused. Its like the new rich Garment factory guys bought Pajero those days.
          Mara wont last long. Thats the cycle.

      ‘ We who demand freedom of speech and thought advocating freedom of the press would want the stooges and traitors exposed.’ SO WHEN SOMEONE ELSE HAS A OPPOSING VIEW TO YOUR VIEW SPECIALLY IF THE ARE TAMIL.. THEY ARE TRAITORS AND A DANGER TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH.. HMMM one wonders what a plural democracy means to so called Tamils for justice.. To deny others opposing views.. something you argue about the Government yet wish to deny for others..

      “We who demand freedom of speech and thought advocating freedom of the press would want the stooges and traitors exposed.”

      Donald Gnanakone and Tamils For Justice. What an oxymoronic comment and title you have. So you are for justice for tamils but then a segment of tamils should not have the freedom of expression and should be called ‘traitors’. And of all places you live in the USA!!!. Shame on you Gnanakone.

      Do we agree with everything Gajan, Fr. Rayappu or others on have to say on the resolution. No. But should we defend to the death their right to have a say?. I SAY A BIG YES.

      Now tell us Gnanakone who else are traitors and stooges to Tamils?. Ranil Wicramasinghe?

        Booo,

        You should ignore this Donald Gnanakone. His Tamils for Justice is a 3-wheeler outfit. He is the President, Secretary and Treasurer of a Party that does not have an office. When GoSL banned diaspora bodies recently they simply have not heard of this joke outfit. Donald was OK so long as his elder brother was around. Since he died in Australia, Donald is a washout. He has a habit of trying to get friendly with those whom he thinks have some influence in the Lankan issue – like this Kiruba, Nihal Amerasekera and so on.

    Look here,

    The resolution is many things. There is a genuine motive to improve human rights. They figure less Tamils will flood their countries and become a nusence if HR situation improve in SL.

    There is also another motive. Obama calls it “Pivot Asia”. In a nutshell, they want to be part of the “Asian century” without being left behind. However, a decade ago they had leverage in Asia due to dependency on US AID and grants. Its no longer so as most countries have become middle income earning nations.

    I’d say collectively the two motives are split 50:50. Although in both cases notice their primary interest is not Tamils. Tamils are like the vessel they use to piggyback their way to their own objectives.

    This is not new. Tamils were used by Russia and its ally India back in 1980 to remove US presence from the Indian ocean. This time the Tamils are used by USA its allies for their own ends. Tamils were European ‘Coolies’ at one stage in history. They are using Tamils as Coolies in news ways.

    SVK,

    You should articulate what these people did or didn’t do, and said or did not say and in what other way they sabotaged the minority cause. It is good practice not to make derogatory (Stooge) remarks just because he or she does not do what you expect them to do. Denigrating others for what they believe in even if it clashes with what you think is going counter to the basis of an open and egalitarian society.

    Freedom of speech is what I am talking about. It is the right of all, the good, the bad and those who you may consider treacherous. Leave the reader/listener to make up their own minds.

      Freedom of speech is not just about an egalitarian society. It is a fundamental human right. Second para of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

      ‘Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people”

      Here we have person who claims to be a Human Rights advocate calling names and denying other’s right to the freedom of speech. What a joker this Kirubharan really is.

    Kirubah,

    More than the four stooges who sabotaged at UN it was our own Thambi who messed up things for us.

    He should have accepted (in 2006) when he was at the top. I personally think Thambi messed up wanting more. He should have been patient and those of us outside could have helped his to get all of Lanka. What a shame that now we have to fight among ourselves.

    Oh! Its once again you are with us or against us by the S.V.Kirubaharan diaspora. Others or the Rest are typical fools……..
    Kirubaharan runs the show & the Resolution and experience the jitters in Geneva !!!!!!!!!!
    Four stooges with just 5000 Tamil votes nearly hijack the mighty US resolutions.
    It appears to have shaken Kirubaharan & the very roots of the foundation of the US stood on.
    So…..only stooges sabotage & distort, Kirubaharan, TNA & the Diaspora are squeaky clean.

    To Jean Mari-Julia, he needs to know first hand of the future of Tamils in the Island, he should simply visit SRI LANKA. There is no necessasity to arrive at conclusions from thousands of miles away of a place never seen. Do we believe Kirubaharan’s assumptions?? It is clear its nott the stooges BUT its Kirubaharan & his sabatoers.

    Kirubaharan, who is this “unnamed pannelist” of yours who congratulate the US for bringing the resolution ??
    And who is this “unnamed” famous Lawyer you refer to ?
    Are these “unnamed people” you refer to are just imaginary??

    In your conclusion, you estimate there were 40 to 50 Tamil Rajapakshe stooges attending the 25th Session of the HRC… You would have been quite surprised to say the least.
    While some worked for the Rajapakshes, others worked for Instituions collecting information of Tamils.
    This latter issue may be quite frightening to the Diaspora involved in rhetorical follies overseas against Sri Lanka.
    Rajapakshes themselves may be not so good people BUT to assume they too have stooges outside Sri Lanka must be quite worrying to you.
    THEY CONTROL SRI LANKA. WHAT EFFORT HAVE YOU GUYS MADE TO APPROACH HIM TO ARRIVE AT A REASONABLE COMPROMISE AS YOU & BONDEVIK & NORWEGIANS HAD ALREADY TREATED WITH DISDAIN THE PEACE OFFERED BY RANIL & THE UNP LOGTIME AGO.
    Now the eelamist/diaspora & the TNA the LTTE proxies lost it all. Now what grounds does the Diasspora seek?????????
    Hoodwinking people by throwing money? Its divine retribution you guys will have to face for disturbing the Peace & for steering the dried cow-dung.
    Finally, leave aside your “tamil proverb”….. Sinhalisation of North & East ? There seem to be no limit to your rumour mongering?
    The lands of this sovereign state belong to all citizen of Sri Lanka. Like the Tamils living outside North & East, Sinhalease too can choose to live in the North & East.
    Also the GOSL can decide to settle any community on crown land in the N & E and its was you people & your local arm the LTTE/TNA who were involved in ethnic cleansing & grabbing land.
    It was TULF who issued promisory notes to the Indian Estate Tamils of Land and settled according to a “Kibutz” fashion that was fasioned by S.A.David……….
    Were these 300,000 saved by the GOSL Forces belong to that group of Estate Indian Tamils who were settled in the Vanni region in the latter half of the 70’s? Was it the reason, India was grateful?
    It appears that UNHRC will be confronted by these 40 to 50 sabatoers and their 5000 supporters when Lady Pillay begin her inquiry.
    If Kirubaharan feared their presence in Geneva, Lady Pillay will fret knowing their presence at the inquiry as the whole of the CAT will be out of the bag if Pillay choose not to overlook.
    Soooooooo…lets wait and see. proof of the pudding is in the eating///
    Untill then, leave us the Jaffnians & the Easterners like Arun.T alone. Do not disturb our Peace. Kindly resort to your distortions closer to your homes where you live with your gullible politicians who are salviating for your vote. Western Democracy at its best.
    Tell them to bully Russia & not a David like Sri Lanka.

    I agree with Hooker that the writer is less articulate and less analytical. As a reader of his articles I too have been left confused many times. If the said press conference is organised outside the UN building and the alleged stooges have the backing of only 5000 Tamils in Sri Lanka then the obvious conclusion is that they don’t have legitimacy over the elected members of TNA. Can the member states and the NGO’s that expressed doubt about their position on the resolution after the press conference not make this assumption themselves?
    Is it India that expressed doubt so that they can conveniently place the blame for not supporting the Resolution on this so called stooges? Why did TNA, the legitimate representatives, didn’t organise a ‘Briefing’ like the IBF within the UN building to explain the Tamil position? Or do Tamils have to always hitch-hike on someone elses ageda all the time to explain away the massacre even by the UN standards? Why is Kirubaharan so worked up if they are only a neglible minority of the Tamil representation? Kirubaharan should not forget the fact that he resides within the safety of Geneva for the past 30 years or so but these alleged stooges witnessed the war first hand and travelled from Sri Lanka at great personal risk to present an alternate view-point that they believe to be true, in one of the outside Geneva Forums. If he is referring to Kumara Kuruparan et-al then he should go back and listen to the speaker’s eloquent articulation of this alternate concept. I can only hope that the member nations that are steeped in democratic traditions will understand them smart enough and respect their sincerity and courage. Hope Kiruba who understands all about UN Resolutions and its workings will at-least mind his language.

    Your call the Tamil opposition to TNA as stooges wishes them untimely death, this is a which hunt. This tirade clearly shows that the Tamils have simply about the idea of the freedom to think and express their views. The Tamil politics balances at the edge of a precipice of emotional collapse and violence, in this kind of political environment their is no room for moderation and inclusion.
    Prabakaran was an extreme example of the latter. TNA’s history has paved its path to the present, will take them to its inevitable conclusion too. Fools never learn.

      If they can do this with a pen for having a different view to them imagine what could happen when they get their hands on guns?. That is why they ended up in Geneva. As Louise Arbour put it

      “…..deflate a romanticization of the Tigers among Tamils…..”

      And this tiger romantic is giving his own kind the same treatment tigers meted out to those who disagreed – Principal Aantharajah, GA Panjalingham to Dr. Neelan and many more.

    Mr. Kirubaharan:

    Tamils are always like this. As the Tamil stooges destroyed the resolution, Tamils destroy Tamils, always.

    Remember how Pabakaran chased out thousands of Tamils to west and made lakhs of Tamils Refugees in their own motherland.

    That is Tamils.

      “Tamils are always like this. As the Tamil stooges destroyed the resolution, Tamils destroy Tamils, always.”

      You mean to say that the Tamils are not far behind the Sinhala! The Sinhala have single handedly been destroying Sri Lanka since 1948.

    Kiruba,

    I watched the whole proceedings of the UNHCR session and I am not sure who these stooges are. If what you are saying about these stooges who polled only 5000 votes then their voice is irrelevant and they should not have been able to influence any States let alone the number you are referring to. If that was the case then the people who represented those respective countries are either ignorant or were got at.

    But let me be frank and if you are referring to Gajendra Kumar and others who spoke then I have to tell that they had a valid point.
    For your information it is now 5 since the Genocide and we cant wait for another 5 years for the penny to drop. There are people who are waiting for news of their loved ones who need to know what happened to them either dead or alive to move on. You cant play politics with peoples lives and grief. We have waited long enough and MR is not going to budge unless he is brought to the HAGUE.

    So let us not squabble amongst ourselves and we need to bury all our differences and speak with one voice on behalf of those who are looking for their loved ones. Once we have a vibrant and healthy Democracy then we can accommodate all shades of opinion. I totally reject the comments of Jim Sotty and the likes as utter rubbish. Look at the way Sinhalese are destroying Sinhalese.

    ” impending danger of full-scale Sinhalisation in the North and East “

    The Tamils have lived in small numbers in the North for a thousand years, numbers replenished by the 17 or so invasions that took place. They were added to by the labourers imported by the Dutch for the Tobacco plantations, and much later by the activities of the likes of Red Barna. The Eastern Tamils on the other hand are recent arrivals to the coastal belt to occupy land vacated by the Sinhala on the orders of the king. The Muslims were similarly settled there by the king. The well orchestrated campaign that Tamils have lived there for centuries in a Sinhala free zone is bunkum.

      Sorry you need to get your history corrected and put right. Buddhism was introduced to Lanka by King Asoka of India in the year 142 BC. His emissaries were Mahinda and Sangamitha. Whether they were Asoka’s son and daughter is irrelevant to be debated as some say he had no children, been a warrior king. The king who was ruling the whole Island then was Theva nambiya theesan son of Mutthusivan. You could conclude their ethnicity. Mahabaratham is about 5000-6000 years. Ravana was a pious Hindu. Buddha a Hindu prince from Nepal lived around 2600 years ago. Mahavamsa was written in Pali language in the 5th century-AD. There were Five Sivan Temples around the Island. One near Hamandotta, is under the sea Thondaswaram. Under the Chinese built harbour are the mountain and the temple that is why harbour cannot be deepened to allow any big freighters. The Other four Naguleswaram, in Jaffna, Thirukatheeswaram in Mannar-Manthai, Thrukoneswaram in Trincomalae. Muneeswaram in Negambo. What about the famous Kathirgama temple? Now draw your own conclusion about the people who had lived in the Island of Lanka.

    For these Tamil extremists truth is a very bitter pill. Kirubaharan being a beneficiary of the LTTE backed diaspora, is bitter about others telling the truth against the diabolical lies spread by them. For him and his cohorts those who oppose terrorism are stooges. What a cruel world?

    I was in the UN.

    What is written here is true.

    Kiruba must be refering to 4 stooges 1 – Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam, 2 – Guruparan from Jaffna University, 3 – Manivannan and 4 – Horse Gajendran. EPDP Douglas refer to Gajendran as “Horse Gajen”.

    These four people were working against the Amercian resolution.

    This created a lot of confussion in the UN.

    The press conference what is refered here was organised by Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam in the Geneva press club.

    The speakers were :

    Guruparan
    Manivannan
    two sinhalese Mendis and Bashana from German
    Sivajeelingam and two others from Canada.

    It was Sivajeelingam who thank the Americans for bringing the resolution.

    Ananthi Sasitharan was suppose to be one of the speakers.

    But TNA put pressure on her and she left Geneva one day before the meeting.
