Suspected War Criminal Jagath Dias Returns To Mullaitivu

The Sri Lanka Army’s Adjutant General Major General Jagath Dias who is strongly implicated in the war crimes allegations against Government forces during the final phase of the war in 2009, was ordered to return to Ground Zero last week.

A spate of high profile military transfers that came into effect last week also saw Major General Dias’ transfer to the former LTTE stronghold of Mullaitivu as Security Forces Commander of the District. Mullaitivu was also the final theatre of battle where the UN estimates some 40,000 civilians perished and some of the worst allegations of war crimes against the military have surfaced.

Dias has been transferred to the Wanni amidst continued claims of heavy militarisation in the North and oppressive surveillance of residents in the area by military personnel. Jaffna Security forces Commander Mahinda Hathurusinghe who has been on a collision course with the recently elected Chief Minister of the Northern Province on several occasions was transferred out of the district.

Dias was also controversially put in charge of the army inquiry into a violent military crackdown against civilian demonstrators in Weliweriya on August 1. Late last year Dias was rejected for military training programmes on account of his role in alleged violations of humanitarian law as Commanding Officer of the 57 division that was instrumental in eliminating the LTTE in the last months of the war.

Dias who was rejected by the United States for training programme on account of his implication in alleged war crimes in August last year was also denied a visa by the Government of Australia – firm friend of the Rajapaksa Administration –  to attend a ICRC workshop due to the allegations against him. Dias was initially asked to withdraw his application for the programme by the Australian High Commission in Colombo, the Island newspaper quoted a senior official as saying.

    This war criminal Jagath Dias is too hot to handle it seems even at the head office in Colombo with so many attempts to ship out of the country having failed!

    Guess only Mullaitivu can accommodate him?

      Only strong military leaders and national heroes like Major General Jagath Dias can prevent the bloody terrorists getting up to their old tricks again in the north. He should tackle premachandran and Sritharan and other criminals.

      Isn’t it ironic that the same dogs barking against this hero wanted to make Sarath Fonseka, his boss during the war the country’s president.

      How do you explain that? “Kanna on wunama balu masuth harak mas wenawalu” neda?

        Heroes become traitors when they don’t toe the line of the rulers. Today’s hero is a traitor tomorrow and yesterday’s traitor becomes a hero.
        When robbers are with the government they are no robbers but when good people are not with the government they are called robbers.
        So your hero , Dias will be called a traitor in case he contests at the next elections as an Opposition candidate.

        No it is not ironic, it was cunning plan on the part of LTTE and TNA.

        VP helped immensely to elect MR who now turned out to be bane on Sinhala/Buddhists. Though stupid Tamils suffered VP had wreaked revenge on the Sinhala/Buddhists.

        TNA supported Fonseka for the same reason.

        Sinhala/Buddhists are now stuck with VP’s choice.

          No cunning plan but a lost plan originated by WHITES!

          Mahinda is a real hero for millions in Sri lanka for defeating USA/UK backed LTTE criminals as well as Fonseka!

        Support for Fonseka from Tamils was purely a case of the lesser of 2 evils, i.e. Fonseka was a lesser evil than Mahinda.

          Are you joking?

          Mahinda never be in uniform but Sarath Fonseka was accused for many disappearances in Jaffna but you bark Fonseka is a better person than Mahinda.

          Further Fonseka told National post of Canada, the Tamils are second class people.

          Mahinda never do such things against Tamils. But Mahinda was the first political leader to speak in Tamil in the UN.

          Tamils proved they are slaves of WHITES by supporting Fonseka a real moron! Tamils who are the slaves of Whites, find a common ground with Fonseka because Fonseka is also an American stooge.

            It is Mahinda’s ideology and what he will do , as proven by what he has done, that made Tamils pick Fonseka.

            For decades you Sinhala begged the West for help in defeating LTTE and without foreign help you would have lost . So who was [Edited out] (and the Indians and the Pakistanis) all these years.

              Mahinda never say like damn Fonseka! You Tamil donkeys cry because You are under the Catholic/christian white morons. You dont care any thing about the killings by Fonseka.

              How did LTTE morons get the GUNS and land mines from the WHITES? LTTE criminals got the weapons from the WHITES, so the government tried to buy from the same WHITE morons.

              Now the GUN business down. That is why the same WHITES are crying so much in support of LTTE goons!

AS FOR THE DON DAVITH DON HENRICK FAMILY NOW KNOWN AS RAJAPAKSAS, THEY WERE BIG WHITE LICKERS, WIFE IS ALSO HALF WHITE, CHRISTIAN, SONS ALSO WHITES CHRISTIAN SCHOOLING, BROTHERS ALSO SETTLED/WORKING IN WHITE AMERICAN COUNTRY PRACTICING WHITE MAN’S MEDCINE.

          MAHINDA DONT SAY DAMN TAMIL, HE DO DAMNING THINGS TO TAMILS, AND WITH A SMILE, HUGGING THE INDIAN IMPORT BO TREE. 4 YEARS AFTER THE WAR WHAT IS THIS RABBID DOG BARKING ABOUT.

          IF NOT FOR THEM PROSCRIBING, FREEZING ASSETS, IMPRISONING AND SUPPLYING THE MOST VITAL INTELLIGENCE ON ARMS SHIPMENTS, THE WAR WILL YET BE RAGING.

          IF THE WHITE MAN HAD NO ISSUE AGAINST TERRORIST AFTER 9/11 YOUR MAHINDA WOULD NOT BE A NOBODY, NOT EVEN ONE WHO HAD FACED THE BATTLE FIELD, ONLY A LIP FIGHTER. THE WHITES GAVE HIM THE FREEDOM TO ENGAGE BUT HE DID NOT GIVE A DAMN WITH AN ONLY 70 000 TAMILS IN THE NORTH BS. IDIOT WAS WILLING TO KILL 250 000 !!!. THANK GOD THE FORCES WERE DISCIPLINED ENOUGH TO GET AWAY WITH 40 000. WE ALL KNOW THAT THE SHAMEFUL CRIMES AT THE END WERE ADVOCATED BY THE WHITE VAN GOON.

          IN THAT WAY, THE FAMILY GUNTAS NEW FOUND TIGER BUDDIES HAVE TO BE THANKED FOR SPLITTING FROM THE GROUP, FALLING FOR THE GREEDY PONNA LOSER RANILS TRAP !!

Do you know killing of a surrendered war criminal is also a crime. Do you have any other name to called those criminals who killed over 40,000 people.

            Further no country is prepared to level any war crimes against our mighty soldiers because they cannot ask Fonseka to support them!

          If you really want to know, here is the list;

          I am sorry I cannot remember rest of the names. Please help me.

          Now it is your turn to honestly name the war criminals including members of JVP, Patriotic Liberation Organization (Deshapremi Janatha Viyaparaya), UNP, SLFP, Armed forces, Policemen, home guards, …… hired killers who were involved in crimes against humanity since 1971.

              Both stupid parties to this brutal war have been maintaining a deafening silence on Pottu Amman.

              If indeed he was killed in the war the Sri Lankan media would have had a field day, every other day since 2009. Not one word on him.

              LTTE supporting English organs also has surprisingly been keeping quiet.

              Where do you think he is?

              Where is KP now?

              There have been news about Pottu Amman’s operatives now working for Gota, this is according to sources close to Armed forces in the North and obviously they are worried.

              @Siva Sankaran Sarma, I have never been a supporter of this group or any other group. These fellows have done immense damage to the people of the North and East. Now as you said, the diaspora is supporting them, I agree. These are fellows who don’t give two hoots about the poor Tamils in the North and East who are suffering in the hands of this horrible government. They have sent their children off to great universities and colleges to be educated and have a lot of free time. So they come up with these creative ideas to keep themselves occupied at the expense of these poor souls in Sri Lanka.

              The point is, the Internationals condemned the terrorists for what LTTE did. Similarly the internationals should condemn the Government if the Government had committed war criimes.

              The internationals did not give a free-hand to LTTE and it is not the internationals who are waving LTTE flags.

              But certainly, LTTE supportive diaspora should have the right to continue to wave LTTE falgs, just as much as Sri Lankans supportive of the regime should retain the right to wave Sri Lankan flags even if investigation confirm the regime indeed committed war crimes.

              LTTE supportive diaspora’s waving of LTTE flag should not become the excuse for not holding Sri Lanka government responsible for any war crimes it may have committed, and a credible investigation is needed to ascertain that. Throwing in LTTE flag waving concern is nothing but a convenient red-herring.

    Don, don’t talk bullshit. Whether it is in SL or any other country, an accused has to be proved of the wrong doings. Until such time he/she is innocent.
    Of course media can always make an accused a saint or a devil in the public eye.
    In the case of Jagath Dias, no one has come up with evidence to prove that he is a war criminal. For your information (and others), during the time Dias was serving as the Dep.Ambassador of Sri Lanka in Germany, the German government did an investigation on their own and found no substantial proof at all made against Jagath Dias.
    This was publicly stated in the German Parliament (Bundestag) on the 13. July 2011.
    So, just don’t hit at someone just because you have the opportunity and don’t call it hot when there is nothing hot at all.

      However this applies only to those countries which revere law and order.

      Since 5th April 1971 many people had been arrested no fault of their own and been killed by the armed forces.

      JVP Rohana was captured and killed. LTTE VP surrendered and subsequently hacked to dead.

      If you want to apply it should be applied consistently through out the island. All or nothing should be the principle which must guide when applying Law and order.

      “In the case of Jagath Dias, no one has come up with evidence to prove that he is a war criminal.”

      He is the witness, probe him.

      “German government did an investigation on their own and found no substantial proof at all made against Jagath Dias.”

      Then why was he asked to vacate his position?

      The question is does the state really want to find out what Jagath and his fellow members of armed forces did or did not do since 1971?

      If you thought otherwise you are kidding yourself.

        Agree.

        Police and Military top brass in Sri Lanka have been bathing in the blood of innocent Sri Lankan citizens. Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims & others. All the ways since Independence.

        We are yet to see a Police or military leader who would bluntly refuse to implement orders given by corrupt, blood thirsty politicians, if such orders are deemed inhumane and against the law.

        Instead, we have had highly decorated officers dancing, at any given moment, to tunes of politicians. As long as they receive bread crumbs falling of political dining tables. Hardly honourable.

        This shameful practice and abuse of official uniforms of Sri Lanka must be ended.

        That is the daunting challenge we face as Sri Lankans.

        Cheers!

          Ben Hurling:
          Your memory of past heads of the security services is selective in the extreme, to be polite.
          There were certainly honest and honourable people in those positions in the past, but ever since SWRDB, that ceased to be the case and those appointed were those willing to do the bidding of their political bosses.
          Of course the current situation under the Rajapassas is beyond anything anywhere except perhaps in North Korea and it is interesting that till very recently, you were a great supporter of that lot and changed your tune a little bit only when you thought they were on a downward trend!

        NV@,

        Great you have put it very clearly.

        We in thecountry today, dont have systematic law and order for any kind of crime investigations. Forgetting all these, they seem to be raising the question.

        Fully agree with you quoting from yrs: ” The question is does the state really want to find out what Jagath and his fellow members of armed forces did or did not do since 1971?”

        As my info are concerned, none of the soldiers have been committed sofar by any trials held since the post war episodes. So how would MR regime convince the lies further to UNHRC sessions in 2 months now in Geneva ?

        I believe just to eyewash IC and the locals, MR has invited Wigneswaran to his office today – and the headlines were – urgent issues will have been addressed urgently. All these are just as excuses – to produce before the HR session. I hope Sumanthiran will focus on these issues whether or not being implemented as promised – in the days to come, since the issues of urgent kind should be kept the word as MR reiterated.

        “Since 5th April 1971 many people had been arrested no fault of their own and been killed by the armed forces”.

        You simply have forgotten the ruthless punishments and killings done by the JVP. It is the duty of security forces to counter coups and revolts. Further you seems to forget that It is the JVP who introduced this cancer of terrorism (grabbing the power by the gun) to SL.

        “LTTE VP surrendered and subsequently hacked to dead”.

        What proof do you have to say VP was surrendered. Were you there in the battle front ?

        “He is the witness, probe him”

        Why should be probed ? Even to do that, bring the proof for all the accusations. Have you got any ?

        “Then why was he asked to vacate his position?”

        Jagath Dias was never asked to leave. He came to Germany for 2 years and left at the end of his term.

        “If you thought otherwise you are kidding yourself.”

        If I am not mistaken Dias is with the SL forces for 32 years now. So how can he be answerable to things happening since 1971 ? I have read lots of your comments on CT, but I never know that you are so silly.

          “You simply have forgotten the ruthless punishments and killings done by the JVP.”

          Please bear with me, I not going to ask you to produce what JVP did or did not do. According to one unofficial body count 18,000 youth perished in 1971, all in the hands of police and army. You may be too young to have met those families who had lost their relatives.

          Again you may have been too young to have met the victim’s relatives whose kith and kin were mercilessly massacred by armed forces, home guards, UNP thugs, JVP…… between 1987 and 1990. Please make an effort to meet them, listen to what they have to say to you and then make up your mind.

          Have you ever travelled through out this island between 1987 and 1990?

          Please do your home work then could we have a useful conversation.

        @Native Vedda, I agree VP surrendered and hacked to death. This Rajini Kulatunga fool does not understand or has not seen dead VP. A bullet wound fired from an AK-47 (or the Chinese version T56), M16, or the HK G3 would have never caused an opening so wide. When the bullet exits, it will leave a circular hole, not an opening like that. So, I agree with you.

      Abhaya,

      Agree actions of USA & Australia are laughable. Given their own blood soaked military track record.

      Most US Generals who served in Iraq and Afganistan should be kciked out of US military training. if they apply the same hypocritical standards they aplly to Sri Lankan officers.

      Nevertheless, building a humane, law abiding & professional Military is not a matter Sri Lanka can leave to Uncle Sam or Crocodile Dundee. It is our duty. First and foremost.

      Sri Lanka has 2500 years of civilized history. We ought to be teaching others how to deal with military matters in a civilized way.

      It is an established fact the Sri Lankan Police and military are inhumane and brutal.

      Police and military are there to protect you and me. The citizens. Not to brutalize us.

      Pointing the finger at USA and Australia is fine. But very tiring.

      Sri Lanka must deal with the issue at once. At least before passionate Ealamistas exploit gravity of our HR situation to their advantage.

      Cheers!

        Dont forget that through google, you will see how we the srilankens have been famous to this day.

        If you google FOR CURRENT human rights violations:

        Srilanka about 163,000,000 results (0.63 seconds) (Population, just 22 mio)
        India about 4,890,000 results (0.29 seconds) (Population,1300 mio or more)
        Brazil about 1,780,000 results (0.35 seconds) (Population,170 mio)
        Germany about 4,020,000 results (0.31 seconds) (Population,81 mio)

        USA about 5,060,000 results (0.56 seconds) (Population, 315mio)

        If the US behaved in Afghanistan like GOSL did against the Tamils, the US would have obliterated the Taleban long ago. It is precisely because the US does not slaughter civilians in Afghanistan by the tens of thousands that the US has to put up with the Taleban.

        What is it with this claim of 2500 of civilized SL history? Vijaya colonised Lanka 2500 years ago but neither he not his followers were civilized as evidenced by their genocide on the Veddah.

            Falujah has never seen tens of thousands slaughtered like GOSL did in 2009.

            SWAT valley was Pak operation and the Pak government created the Afghan Taleban and continues to double cross the US. Even so there has never been a Coalition operation that deliberately and intentionally singled out tens of thousands of civilians for slaugther like GOSL. GOSL slaughter is without comparison in recent years.

            Why are you bringing up WW2 and Vietnam when the previous post was about Afghanistan and Iraq. The US has changed from Vietnam and WW2 era. Only a biased hack like you will not give them credit for it.

            The US can takeover Iraq or Afghanistan and colonize it but they aren’t , that is the difference between the US and GOSL. US has the means but refrains from doing so while GOSL does everything it can to wipe out Tamil existance.

            Let me reiterate, there has never been a single case of the US in Iraq or Afghanistan slaughtering tens of thousands of civilians in designated no fire zones. GOSL stands unique in this mass slaughter in contemporary times. Even the drone attacks are as accurate as attacks can be. If the US was like GOSL, they would carpet bomb and wipe out entire villages in Pak’s tribal areas.

              It really will be interesting to see the USA ‘colonizing’ those countries. They may be able to nuke the places off the map like they did Hiroshima and Nagasaki but colonizing …. really!!

              They can’t even hold their few fortified camps and are waiting for the time to ‘exit’. It is only due to the fact that the Afghans and Iraqis are patient enough to wage a long war that the USA has not been made to do an unceremonious panic stricken withdrawal like in Vietnam.

              Even the former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State of the USA doesn’t believe what you believe.

                If the US fought like they did during the Indian wars (Native American Indian) or WW2, they could take over that region.

                Some of you are colored by your knee jerk opposition to anything American or Western and pat yourself on the back thinking how the US can’t win when the reality the current zeitgeist is against blatant mass slaughter of civilians. This is what is holding the US back.

            So how many Iraqi or Afghan refugee camps and or villages has the US carpet bombed or destroyed with artillery fire.

            You can’t find a single contemporary instance whether the US has deliberatly bombed tens of thousands of civilians seeking refuge in a specified area. GOSL did just this, they intentionally adjusted their mortar trajectory to bomb Tamils in no fire zone.

            US is not colonising or trying to wage genocide against Iraqis and Afghans. This is the big difference between GOSL and the US.

            I am disappointed in you as I figured you to be relatively fair but this post you sound like someone who knee jerk dams the US.

              US invasion of Iraq created more than half million widows there. US invaded Iraq with false propaganda of weapons of mass destruction but found nothing.

              On the first day of bombing of Iraq US killed more than 100000 people there.

              I think you are a half baked potato and knows nothing or try to hide the facts.

              Can you tell why LTTE morons went inside the No Fire Zone created by the GOSL?

              Former TNA MP S.Kanagaratnam is still alive in Vanni to tell the horrors of LTTE inside the NFZ. Not only he, many other eye witnesses are there to tell how LTTE morons killed the fleeing Tamil people.

            The US committed a lot of atrocites and mass slaughter there but they didn’t go all the way; and by that I mean nuclear and indefinitely staying in Vietnam until the North surrendered.

            The US started a negotiated pull out after the Tet Offensive. The NVA was defeated by US and South Vietnamese forces in the Tet Offsensive but the war was unpopular in the US at this point and the Tet Offensive was the last straw.

            What you have to understand with Vietnam is that the US pulled out because Americans were fed up with the war. It’s not really because the US did not have the firepower to win, it is that when the public and media turns against a war, the war is over.

    Those accusing are the very perpetrators of war crimes. They think they can shield themselves by accusing those fought against terrorist.

    Wasn’t it a master stroke to stop Fonny’s on its tracks and drive away the Sinhala Buddhists who rallied around their hero Fonny..

    Does anyone believe that Ranil wanted Fonny to win ???????…..

    JAGATH DIAS HAS TO BE CAREFUL HERE, NOT JUST THE TAMILS, BUT THE JUNTAS.
    HE IS NOT CUT FROM LOINCLOTH, SO ITS NOT JUST THE JUNTAS BUT THE COUNTRY, WELL THE LOIN-CLOTHS THAT WILL BE READY TO CUT HIM.

    EVEN THOUGH HIS CATHOLIC/CHRISTIANTY HELPED SAVE MADHU AND RESULTING ALLEGATIONS, IT WILL NOT HELP WITH THE MASSES PREFERING THE INDIAN’S BUDDHISM. HE WILL GET USED, ABUSED, BLAMED AND SIDELINED.

    Maj. General Jagath Dias is a great military leader who fought a terrorist outfit with bravery. We salute you, sir.

        Good idea! He deserves not only a statue in bronze but in gold also for destroying your Tiger criminals!

      “Wasn’t this the guy who was supposed to have given VP or his body double the chop with the axe.”

      Where did you get this wrong idea? He was holding UN charter in both hands through out the war years, no axe.

      The LTTE goons must be chopped in to 1000 pieces for the crimes they committed against tamils.

      especially those who converted to bhuddhism but are not allowed to get into the main bhuddhist sect due to their “aapu minissu”status.

    JAGATH DIAS IS A SRI LANKAN WAR HERO.

    He is of the calibre of people like TEN GIANTS OF KING DUTU GEMUNU.

      Jagath is not only a hero but also a humanitarian. He saved Tamil civilians as well as 12,000 LTTE morons as well!

    winning the war against LTTE was the best thing that happened to SL. what happened/ is happening after a disaster. proper investigations on war crimes should have been done so that these general can keep their head high. Now lies(channel4) and truth is mixed together no one knows what really happened.
