Pillay Urges To Protect Tamils She Met: ‘Tamils Who Met UN Rights Chief Threatened In Sri Lanka’ – Rudrakumaran

In an urgent appeal to the UN High-Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, the Prime-Minister of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE), Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran , urged her to ensure that those Tamils who met her in the NorthEast of the island are protected from harassment and abuse by the Sri Lankan Security forces and intelligence agencies.

PM - TGTE - Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran

According to BBC (Tamil Service), those who met the UN High-Commissioner Pillai have been threatened.

Additionally BBC reports that the military who were kept inside the camps during her trip were out in the streets and have re-established their check points, after the High-Commissioner left Tamil areas. The checkpoint at Elephant-pass in the A9 road, which was closed down during her stay have also been reopened after she left.

Hundreds of mothers of the disappeared held peaceful rally showing the pictures of their loved ones who went missing after security forces abducted them or surrendered to the security forces. Some of these mothers and relatives of the disappeared met High-Commissioner Pillay and urged her to find their loved ones.

“It is those who met High-Commissioner Pillay who are being threatened by the intelligence services and the security forces” said Rudrakumaran.

“We strongly urge High-Commissioner Pillay to take necessary steps to ensure the safety of those Tamil whom she met. These people are extremely vulnerable and need protection” appealed Rudrakumaran.

UN High-Commissioner Pillai visited Northern town of Jaffna and “Mullivalkal” where the mass killing of Tamils took place during the final months of the war in May 2009. It is in these places she met families of those directly affected by the Sri Lankan Security Force abuse.

      The Army (Not the Navy) is working on it.
      Collecting Gold, Cash, and Land deeds is not quick enough.
      It is big money for the Army guys who are cronies of the MOD Chief!!!

      It is the Right of the Tamils to leave that damned island.
      WTF -Why are the racist-chauvinist-extremist trying their best to prevent the victimized Tamil civilians to leave the country?????

      Rudrakumar the immigration attorney just talks and issues statements while eating Rajapakses groceries.. He would not dare get on Sri Lankan Airlines flights anywhere…..lol. TGTE is a TALK SHOP. NATO….Same is TAG and GTF/BTF.

      They dare not call for real Trade and Trade Union action… Shame on them. ACT NOW….Boycott, Sanctions, and Trade Union action in Tamil Nadu.

    Those Tamils should be investigated for their extremist links.

      Jim….”those Tamils should be investigated for their extremist links”

      Are you suggesting that all the Tamil boys,girls, men and women who “disappeared”[ quaint word for persons abducted and killed leaving no trace] were active LTTE members and that therefore their grieving mothers must forfeit the right to demand a probe that will hopefully establish th circumstances of their ” disappearances”. So what if they were?Are you by any chance suggesting that if that were the case the abductions/disappearances/ extra-judicial killings and civilian deaths too in the final days of the war were all justified and hence brook no investigation because they were justified by someone’s interpretation of some special law.? What’ interesting about your line of thought and of thousands such such as yours, is that there is a thread of utter fear at what a serious probe might uncover. We know all about the LTTe atrocities and they are so well chronicled that there is no need for a probe. Their crimes against humanity are self evident.

      But what we are dealing with here is not just a matter of taking moral high-ground but a plea for a simple and credible probe to establish why persons were dragged out of their homes with no proof of their involvement with the LTTE and went missing while being in the custody of those who abducted them.

      Makes any serious minded person wonder.

      Again, why are those mothers who appealed to Navi Pillay being threatened?Don’t they have the right to call for a probe that will establish what fate befell their loved ones? Why don’t we realise that these are the factors which lend credence to war crimes allegations.Naked suppression of a legitimate right merely adds substance to that skeleton of credibility. Surely our people can apply their intelligence to this sordid saga and work out a saner solution to what is decidedly a wretched problem. And Jim, in your next comment you ay ” WE MUST STAY CALM and see what she will be doing”. What are you so fearful about that it needs an effort to ” stay calm” Scares the dirt out of you ? I know that it’s heinous to even think of permitting our soldier to get incriminated in any allegation of atrocities considering that they were out there facing the bullets and explosives to bring an end to that once uncontrollable tyranny. In the pressure cauldron atmosphere of battle when one knows not at what moment the enemy will strike with telling accuracy, with one’s comrades limbs just flown down to Colombo to mothers ailing agonizingly at the sight of those black body bags… yes, emotions can run agonizingly high in the minds of young soldiers. I for one see the very dEep human angle an sympathise, agonizingly so. THERE’S ALWAYS TWO SIDES TO ANY COIN JUT AS MUCH AS THERE ARE IN MOST INCIDENT HIGHLY EXTENUATING… EVEN ODDLY JUSTIFYING…CAUSATIVE FACTORS.i BELIEVE THAT IN CERTAIN WARTIME SITUATIONS THOUGH ITS VERY EASY TO BE CONDEMNATORILY JUDGEMENTAL THAT SHOULD ONLY BE THE EXCEPTION AND NOT THE RULE…NOT WHEN ONE IS DALING WITH YOUNG SOLDIERS UNDER INCREDIBLE PHYSICAL STRAIN AND PSYCHOLGICAL TRAUMA.NO MATTER WHAT THE CRIME IF THERE I A CLEAR CASE FOR EXCULPATION I BELIEVE THAT ALL AUTHORITIES, GOVERNMENT, RIGHTS GROUPS, THE uN AN THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY MUST COME OFF THEIR HIGH HORSES AND LOOK AT THESE ISSUES OBJECTIVELY.IF THERE IS GOING TO BE A SERIOUS SEARCH FOR ETHNIC RECONCILIATION THERE MUST FIRST BE MUTUAL FORGIVENESS. THIS WILL NEED MEN OF THE STATURE OF A MANDELA ON ALL SIDES.

      SRI LANKA’S CURSE IS THAT WE LACK SUCH MEN AND THAT A POWER HUNGRY GOVERNMENT APPEARS TO BE SPONSORING SECTIONS OF THE BUDDHIST CLERGY TO CARRY OUT A REPULSIVE RACIST-RELIGIONIST POGROM ON ALL AN SUNDRY OUTSIDE THE REALM OF A NEW, VICIOUS SOCIAL TYRANNY THAT MASQUERADES BEHIND YELLOW ROBES.INCAPABLE OF HANDLING THE POST-WAR TRUMATISED SERVICEMEN FACTION IN THE GOVERNMENT ARE STUPIDLY ABUSING THAT TRAUMATISED CONDITION TO EXTEND ITS IRON HOLD ON POWER. THAT’S UTTERLY INHUMAN ON THE PART OF THE GOVERNMENT.THE COUNTRY CAN OFFER THESE UNEDUCATED, UNEMPLOYABLE AN TRAUMATISED SOLDIERS NO EMPLOYMENT. SO THEY ARE NOT DEMOBILISED AND RETAINED IN SERVICE TO BE USED IN THE SOLITARY PURSUIT OF POWER.

      LOOKING AT THE BIG, WIDER PICTURE, ONE CAN SEE WHERE THE BUCK WILL TOP IF A PROBE INTO DISAPPEARANCES IS LAUNCHED. AND IF AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS , THAT’S WHEN THE SHIT HITS THE FAN.. AND IT WILL BE SPLASHED ON SEVERAL SEVERAL PEOPLE IN COLOMBO…NOT, MIND YOU THIS WELL.. NOT ON OUR SERVICEMEN. tHAT’S WHAT WORRIES YOU, RIGHT ? YOU KNOW THAT YOUR GOD’S HAVE FEET OF CLAY AND DON’T WANT THEM EXPOSED. IT’S NOT OUT OF LOVE FOR OUR SOLDIERS THAT THE ANTI-PROBE CLUB IS SHOUTING ITSELF HOARSE. OH NO ! AND THEY BLOODY WELL KNOW IT. WHY WAS SARATH FONSEKA SO MERCILESSLY DEALT WITH ? OUT OF A DEEP DESIRE TO PROTECT OUR SOLDIERS FROM A WAR CRIMES TRIBUNAL ? GUESS AGAIN.

        First you need to prove that pregnant women, if they got killed, who dug trenches for LTTE were not not working for LTTE ?

        Or the old men who were digging trenches for LTTE were not LTTE.

        They all were in civilian cloths

        Where do you draw the line ?

    How about an Ethnic Tamil, Navi pillai, investigating Tamil claims against another ethnic group, particularly a not that strong, only about 17 million against 100 million large ethnic – group ?

    We need to stay calm and see what she will be dong ?

      Jim Stupidity,
      not only tamils, muslims and sinhalese are threatened by current govt forces today. Most recent example is Weliweriya. Irrespective of the facts that some were within the premises of churches, they had been shot by the army under the command of President himself. So, what talks about the tamils in the nothern areas. Tamils are also srilankens but those army men feel superior over those tamils. Need of the hour is to occupy those territories by UN peace forces not by sinhalese army. Latter was the case following the world war II in Germany. Those foreign forces occupied in baracks (osternbrueck, Karslruhe, Kaiserlautern, Berlin, Freiburg and many other places in Germany).Lanken army forces are brutal before their own communities so how can they be neutral with tamils folks with whom the army fought a 30 year war ?

    As Chemical weapons in Syria is a hot topic at the moment, this brainless idiot thought he would include it in a request to the visiting S Korean leader. He asked him to raise the use of chemical weapons by Sri Lanka with the President.

      The Double Tongue Malabari, who running with a noose on his hand, Cheating people with his clan, called Jarapassa,
      Who Ran away When the Ms Navi Pillay visit the Island.

      Because Both are Afraid to Answer to the people about truth and feel guilty to face the consequences.

    If Navi Pillai is honest and has integrity and some human values in her heart, she should promote arresting People like Rudrakuamran for Crimes against humanity.

      If she is not honest, there is no reason her to get elected as the HR highcommissioner for UN.

      It is not like the election of MR – computer gilmarts, vote rigging and votes by largely manipulated rural communities have paved MR to get reelected. Evidences were there, but the enviroment is not lawful enough to go for proper investigations.

      Otherwise She must Advise JARAPASSA to Put SATAKAYA around his neck and Take him to Araliya gaha Mandiraya take all the loot and
      to give a Group of goons to do contract killings
      Like K P, KARUNA, Pillyan, Kudu dumiya and Duguya.

      HOOOOOOO ,

    Rudrakumar should be hauled before the Hague for AIDING AND ABETTING THE LTTE to commit crime.
    If he ever step into Sri Lanka must be tried under the PTA.

    What is surprising is that PILLAY never spoke or mentioned the PTA to be repealed.

      Why not Try it.
      Obviously you fellows do not know the international law like many in the Tamil diaspora including immigration attorney Rudrakumar.

      It is nearly 5 years after Mullivaikaal and Tamil diaspora has spent over 1 million dollars on attorney fees and nothing to show where it matters. The USA, and do not forget that there are 4 US citizens in Sri Lanka who have allegedly committed War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity.

      Then there is one Australian as well. If you add Gordon Weiss it will be 2. But Gordon Failed in his responsibilities as a UN employee. Not War Crimes which he watched while collecting material for this “Nobody” to write the book.
