TGTE Calls For Economic Sanctions Against Sri Lanka In A New UNHRC Resolution

By Colombo Telegraph

“The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam welcomes Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Dr Jayalalithaa’s call to the Indian government to move a separate resolution to impose economic sanctions against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC and calls upon all governments to follow her lead.” says TGTE.

PM - TGTE - Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran

Nimal Vinayagamoorthy, TGTE Minister for Economic Development and Environment said he is pleased that the Chief Minister has once again called for economic sanctions against Sri Lanka: “I welcome the strong stand the Chief Minister has taken in calling for economic sanctions against Sri Lankaand her reiteration of the resolution passed by the Tamil Nadu Assembly. I urge the Indian government to heed her demand and for all other governments including UNHRC members to follow her lead and give their support for such a resolution,” the Minister stated, renewing TGTE’s call for a UN Security Council sponsored embargo against Sri Lanka and for an ICC referral to look into the charge of genocide against Sri Lanka’s political and military leaders in addition to war crimes and crimes against humanity.

TN Assembly resolution of June 2011 had asked the Indian Central Government “to initiate action by working with other nations for imposition of an economic embargo on the Sri Lankan government and declare perpetrators of genocide as war criminals, till the Tamils living in camps are resettled in their own places and allowed to live with dignity, self-respect and equal constitutional rights on par with the Sinhalese.”

“Not only has the Sri Lankan President ruled out any autonomy for the Tamil people, he has rejected all calls for accountability for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide” the Minister added, expressing condemnation “at the ongoing structural genocide that’s taking place in the NorthEast to obliterate the Tamil Nation, not to mention the breakdown of the rule of law, the complete erosion of democratic values, torture and detention without charge and disappearance without trace of Tamils under the PTA, rape and violence against Tamil women and the impeachment of the Chief Justice among other.”

Citing Reuters and referring to the latest UN High Commissioner Ms Navi Pillay’s report, post UPR, that found “abductions and killings continue inSri Lanka,” which decried the “lack of progress in war time investigations,” the Minister was clear-cut in his views that the international community cannot idle anymore. Underscoring Ms Pillay’s call to “authorities to allow  international experts in criminal and forensic investigations to help resolve outstanding wartime crimes and end impunity,” the Minister urged the international community to initiate an international independent investigation.

“The moment of truth has arrived, time for India and the UN to act and act decisively,” the Minister said.

    After trying and failing to strangle Sri Lanka’s population for 30 years with dispicable violence, TGTE monkeys now want to use economic sanctions.

    I do not support the corrupt UPFA regime in Colombo.

    However, I will not involve TGTE in that struggle. They are sworn enemies of beautiful and multi-ethnic Sri Lanka.

    TGTE represents a perverted version of Tamil ethno-nationalism. it is bound to fail in the mosaic that makes up Sri Lanka.

    Minister Nimal’s demand first appear to be to the State Govts to take cue from the future Eelaam CM in TN.

    Apparently the demand applies to all member nations of the UNHRC as well.

    UNHCR itself under Ms Pillay does’nt need any demands.

    There is a strong possibility that the CM might go alone if Dr Singh and other heads of Nations do not heed her demand.

    In that scenarion what are the implications to our booming Economy?

    According to our Taxi drivers, Naduans are the tightest among all Indians who come as tourists.

    So not much effect at micro level.

    Discounting the frequent travelers on “other missions” Naduans are not many in numbers as genuine tourists.

    So nothing serious at macro level either.

    Krish Group board members, who have sold even their heirlooms to pay the deposit for the block of land in Colombo 2, however must be worried thinking they may lose the deposit if Dr Singh bend over to Ms Jayalalitha.

      All these are just because of you and the like minded folks of the country that promote violations of the rule of law in the beautiful island. So long your ilk exist supporting further to the MR and henchmen, there will be no peace on this island.

      Poor masses have to suffer a lot in case they would impose such sanctions against the folks. As it was the case with Gadapi, he did not become tame, even if US and Nato attacked them, only the poor of the poor suffered in there and irak. The same will be the case with our folks, after MARCH.

    Economic boycott against Sri Lanka, where Tamils – many hundreds of thousands brought to pitiable levels already by various factors outside their own making – too will suffer immensely. This should be an option to be considered later if the Rajapakses continue to be obstinate. It is no different to that legendary cutting the nose to spite the face story. It should not be in the Agenda now.

    Oh great Prime Minister without a land kindly cut off the nose to spite the face……….
    This is “Mahdena Mutta” thinking.

    You can vouch for Pillay and Shout… Thats it.

    Sumane,

    I am alarmed to read your comments “Krish Group board members, who have sold even their heirlooms to pay the deposit for the block of land in Colombo 2” Now. my friend, this is a project that is estimated
    close to half a billion US$. If Krris Group have sold whatever, then,
    as Mangala warns us, this Group is not worth relying on to complete
    this humongous project in the very heart of Colombo 1 – not Cbo 2 as you say. It is Transworks House – adjacent to the Colombo Hilton, the former Employment Exchange and the Chamber of Commerce/BoC Building.
    I wished the Project success earlier but quickly added the Indian partner chosen is neither Tata, Reliance or Birlas – the more reputed Indian congloromates. Indians, like the Overseas Chinese, can easily sniff crooked regimes. Remember JRJ in his times invited “let the robber barons come” and men like Keng Neam and Joe Sim didn’t fail to oblige. Looks like they are here in more numbers than what old wily fox imagined. For God’s Sake, what the venal Rajapakses do with the money and resources of the Sri Lankan people, let them do it with the sanction and approval of the Indian High Commission viz: GoI. There are too many Shri 420s (Wuli, are you listening) floating around in
    India looking for crooked governments in S.E. Asia.

      If the Colombo Elite and their Diaspora buddies pay LKR 30 Mil upwards a piece off the plan for Krish Tower Pads ,our inhabitants wouldn’t be too worried.

      They are only interested in the land .

      Krish Board can’t move it to Maha Barta even if they come up with the balance.

    Boycott has to address the problem of the post-war Wanni victims who had been made destitute by abortive shut down of IDP camps. Security zones are accelerated the agenda to populate the periphery with security men and their families. The dramatic pace of destruction of existing domestic buildings is carried out to replace with military standard building to withstand firepower and explosions. But Wanni victims are without roof over head and without support from anyone. 90,000 widows are still relying on handouts have been reduced to abject poverty. Continuing military agenda and unreleased prisoners add to the problem of survival. It is diaspora and Tamil brethren in India who has to support the War Victims. Now the Rajapakse regime denounced any political devolution to Tamils, any weapon can be tolerated if that can bring a political solution and peace. While China is there, no weapon is effective unless they are confronted. If we moot a campaign against China and get people from Syria to Myanmar, then there is a possibility to realise that through economic embargo.

      The reason the IDP camps were prematurely shut and the IDPs left without a shelter and food is because of the diaspora claims that the GoSL was running concentration camps that were imprisoning the IDPs. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. So go ahead with sanctions. The first to starve will be those IDPs. Then you can whine that Tamils are dying and call for intervention. But the IDPs won’t be resurrected by intervention.

      Oh now pretend to be living in Sri Lanka.
      For sometime you pretended like a Tamil then a Tamlease then a Sinhalease what is next.
      Are you sure you are living in Sri lanka Cuckco Dogtor. Didnt you see snow there.? I tell you please leave the Tamils alone. You can still get your dues from the KP ministry from the Tamlease fund. You are trying to be a self proclaimed intellectual and increase your rate. Sinhalese are more intelligent than you think. Close your eyes and drink your milk dogtor before they run out of funds. Hope your Rajapakse temple project is going well in London which is in Sri Lanka you think. Dont worry about the pri minister You will be the Chief priest of Rajapakse Temple.

    Sumane,

    You are deliberately missing my point. If this mighty Krrish Group have to sell or mortgage whatever they own to pay the 10% deposit here
    then we are into another Sakvithi scam, brother. Like me, you may have learnt from these pages and elsewhere many Flybynight “investors” have taken nocturnal rides out after leaving “the polla” to State-banks here which obviously were arm-twisted to part with several billions of rupees. Even if the alleged Aussie partners have bolted from the Embilitpitiya Paper Mills, as reported, letting another bank down to a large sum then it is time for even patriots like you to shed a little
    kandulu – not the croc variety.

    By the way, why did Gamini W – the rich, honourable and successful BoC boss- and the elitist relative of the ruling set – decide to throw in the towel when Kabaralal and everybody else in the Team scream we are
    doing as best as ever? As a few birds whisper, is it because he refused to yield to a spoilt brat who tried to twist him arm on loans to the crooked – playing the role of Kommission Kakka. And as to the
    man who has filled the vacancy – urghh.

    India never ever for tamils. Russian, Chinese, Pakistan and Iran weapoens killed tamils in Sri Lanka under full Indian blessing. What India wanted only done by Sri Lanka. Sri Lankn tamils go behind Chinese you are 100% better off. Whole India belongs to tamils but yellow Hindus corner you to now South and later may be to sea. What Delh wants Sri Lanka did.

    Even UNO SEc. gen. was busy with his next term and completly forget tamils and saving them in Sri Lanka. He wants Sri Lanka’s support for next term. That is why he did not interfere and allowed tamils to get killed with Chinese and Pakistan weapeons.

    David Blacker may please note there are still IDP camps in the North.
    I believe those that were closed “prematurely” were not because of diaspora pressure but more donor countries were insisting these bring back awful memories of the Holocaust/WW2 and, therefore, they should be done with. Those who live in the open are mostly those who returned to their villages and found their homes and properties either destroyed or “taken over” by state actors – for one reason or the other.

      ISS,

      You may be correct that IDP camps were closed not because of diaspora pressure but because of pressure from donor countries.

      However, aren’t donor countries interested in IDP camps because of Diaspora pressure? Are these not the same countries where there are huge diaspora populations or voting blocks!

        A review of what Tamilnet reported during the said period will be quite revealing.

    It is unlikely Tamilnet would have claimed all IDP camps are closed. The State claimed they were more to save itself from global condemnation than real. Even rural simpletons know the credibility of
    the State is now legendary. While most camps were closed the people in them did not go to their homes – but to reluctant relatives, friends and to make-shift ill-provided and unhealthy relocations against their will. Camps like Kepapilavu in Mullaitivu, Vengalachedikulam, several in the Vavuniya GS Divisions are reported to still contain large concentration of IDPs away from the State’s radar.

    I will join Blacker and other known cheer-leaders of the regime in applauding if all these innocent and suffering people are found homes or places to stay – at least conforming to their bare minimum. No Tamil worth his name will be at ease unless this is done.

      ISS,

      If anyone is not worthy of his/her name its the Diaspora Tamils who kept mum when LTTE was shooting IDPs that escaped their last bastion and still want to prolong the misery of these hapless, hopeless people to achieve their political objectives.

      Tamils who pretend not to see this but continue to blame everybody else are not worthy of both their name and soul!

    I’m a carpetbagger from Jaffna
    living the good life in
    California

    My children attend the ivy schools
    and my wife keeps the peace by keeping
    away from other Jaffna Tamils
    I too prefer Sinhalese as friends
    as they are more jolly and less meddling

    But it’s too comfortable and quiet
    life does get boring in
    California

    I work as a Walmart usher
    and my wife is a Dollar Store cashier
    and we are pretty much unknown in
    Calfornia

    I need to feel I’m somebody
    and have an Identity
    and at age 65
    what other excitement I have?

    So I sit in my goodwill armchair
    after a shot of Jack Daniel
    and work on my old laptop
    promoting Tiger politics
    even though I don’t like to socialise with Tamils
    and I will never go back to Eelam
    even if it falls from the sky like a meteor
    that fell in Russia the other day.

    Every two years me and my wife
    sneak into the island for a holiday
    But we stay in Colombo and travel only in the cool South
    Going to Jaffna where family vipers abound is a No No
    Have to admit Colombo is a happy place
    It’s party time all the time
    coconut arrack
    pittu with crabs and prawn
    rice with kos and mallung
    egg hoppers with seeni sambol
    wattallappan
    Sinhalaya Modaya Unatta Unge kaama nam honthai

    I even have investments in Colombo
    – a condo and 60 grand in fixed deposit
    for my old age
    when I need good medical, dental and long term care
    that I won’t get in
    California

    I am contented
    I am living the good life in
    California
    I am also somebody, I’m the Minister for Genocide against
    all non-Tamils in Jaffna in the TGTE government
    I am raising funds to sacrifice the next generation of Tamil children
    to keep us carpetbaggers secure in the West

    – Ajay
