The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) Ministry of International Affairs has today written to all members of the UNHRC to strictly adhere to the mandate given to the OISL, stating that it is important that the March 2014 resolution for an international independent investigation is not compromised but completed and report presented to Council on 25 March 2015 as planned, with recommendations for further action and referral to the ICC with an action plan for implementation.
“On behalf of the victims of the Mullaivaikkal war and for the dependents of those thousands killed, for justice, accountability and for closure of the pains and sufferings for the families to move forward, it is paramount that the UNHRC exercise its authority that human rights abuses, war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide should never be accepted or tolerated. Failure to enforce this resolution on Sri Lanka will only further encourage other dictators or regimes to take advantage and pursue state terrorism on its own people with impunity.” says the TGTE.
The TGTE said; “The lessons from Rwanda (never again) and the failure of UN to prevent the massacre in Sri Lanka, and the relevance of UNHRC for hope, justice and accountability comes into question for all victims and for the future of humanity. There needs to be a warning and a deterrent (R2P) before it happens again anywhere. UNHRC has this responsibility.
“The new Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL), which consists of the same perpetrators from the Mahinda regime, continues its arrogance and refuses to cooperate with UNHRC and still denies access to the UN investigators into the nation. It further wants to delay justice and accountability, protect the perpetrators, to cover and deviate the human rights and war crimes issues by proposing yet another “domestic” commission.
“The agenda of the new regime is no different from the previous Mahinda regime, and is continuing with its genocidal intent. It still refuses demilitarization, army is instilling fear and terror, is now planning to use the army for police duties, refuses to release women, children and political prisoners, refuses to provide list of those in custody, refuses to release confiscated lands by the army, there are still 50 000 internally displaced families refused entry into their own homes and farms, human rights violations are continuing by armed para military groups. Missing persons are still unaccounted for.
“Only a UNHRC mandated comprehensive independent international investigation will be accepted by the victims, their dependents, by the Tamils worldwide, and to all other victims worldwide waiting with hope for justice and accountability, for the truth on how, why and by whom this massacre took place.
“TGTE request the international community to come forward and ensure OISL completes its mandate, for the victims and for justice and accountability, knowing the past history of deceit and deviation by the successive Sri Lankan regimes, with continued subjugation under the military, it is now the responsibility and obligation of the international community (and through this report), to take urgent appropriate action on the plight of the Tamils in Sri Lanka.”

Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran – PM – TGTE
Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran – “PM – TGTE”
Does PM and TGTE and for Prime Minister and Tamil Glabal Tamil EElam?
OR does it stand for
Periya (பெரிய) Mootal (முட்டால்) of TGTE, Big Fool of TGTE?
The Mootals (முட்டால்) did not vote or voted for Mahinda Rajapaksa.
The Mootals (முட்டால்) who listened to TGTE, did not vote in 2005, 2010 and 2015.
The Tamils with Common sense Voted for Mairupala Sirisena in 2015.
Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran – PM – TGTE, you are good at talking and turning Tamils with Common sense and turning them into Mootals(முட்டால்). Fortunately, there are only a few tamils left to be converted to be Mootals(முட்டால்).

Hello State sponsored terrorism the real terrorist exposed by Peoples’ Tribunal on Sri Lanka

I agree completely with “ the international community to come forward and ensure OISL completes its mandate, for the victims and for justice and accountability, knowing the past history of deceit and deviation by the successive Sri Lankan regimes, with continued subjugation under the military, it is now the responsibility and obligation of the international community (and through this report), to take urgent appropriate action on the plight of the Tamils in Sri Lanka.”
Abimanu / February 9, 2015
Yes–International Community (IC)will “come forward and ensure OISL completes its mandate” just because this joker of a “Prime Minister ” is calling for it!!!!
The IC only wanted a “Regime change”–one of the tools they used was “International Investigation” (aka Human Rights violations). The regime change has happened; now they will play down the investigation saying that they will “wait for the positive steps to be taken by the new government”.
Mallaiyuran / February 10, 2015
We have been saying and writing about This. It is not that Tamils did not think that IC might want a regime change.
But the implications are complex. First if thy wanted a regime change and and if it is not about Tamils, there has to be reason. In other words they a looking for their influence in Lanka, not China who funded for Old King’s candidacy. If they have to contend that the regime change has taken place, they have to feel the change.Suppose America would like have a base and that is for what they spent time and money. But what has happened? The Colombo Port has been under the China administration. part of the port is on lease to China. The Island that is being build is for China by China. Usually all governments build that of infrastructure, there always spying instruments remains planted. China has not been shy of any thing. It very courageously brought nuclear submarines to the ports it is leasing. With out any denial, when it owns the new island, it will be used as its semi-base. Lanka’s executive Prime Minister, after issuing challenges, could not stop the island building project. So, when legally China owns the island, Lanka can not stop war planes landing and taking off. (Prime Minister might be thinking after they successfully cheat on the UNHRC case and get it out of UN, then they can take on China. I do not think China is that kind fool and spent billions on a island where in the main land there are lot of places to build entertainment centers. So how the IC, (the West) going to feel the regime change? No party change on new King. No policy change on China with New King. America will not be able to lease a base in Lanka. America can not afford to build and island like China and keep it as its base. From whence the feeling of regime change going to come to west?

LOL there are still Army garbing land even after Government change.
Tilak de Silva / February 9, 2015
Keep on dreaming you ninkampoop, you were investigate by NY bar council for misappropriating your clients money, which you directed to LTTE, you are on probation, there are other charges pending on you, that may incarcerate you, like other LTTE idiots in USA and Canada. You recruited them because you did not have the balls to do them yourself. You are trying to redeem yourself by giving hopes to dumb Tamil diaspora, by beating a drum that has no basis. Your prodigal mate/brother Velupunde Prabahkaran killed more people by himself than any international terrorist known. So get a life, stop misleading innocent people.
Prem / February 9, 2015
Even if UN fail this will help to expose truth by Peoples’ Tribunal on Sri Lanka .
Senthil / February 9, 2015
Say the Diaspora , TGTE etc. are not powerful at all in front of Government money, propaganda and support from powerful countries. Why can’t you ignore them, thinking they are a bunch of idiots, why waste your time and provide nasty comments. They will disappear if srilankan Government resolve the long outstanding Tamils political issue. Do not say that there is no issue and fool yourself. Until there is problem in North and east, they will function, that is reality. LTTE was created by resist Singhalese. The Karma will chase you all the way even after you die, your money and arrogance will not help.
anu / February 10, 2015
Karma already hit your LTTE brethren badly have you forgotten it already , of course not ,that’s why you are here crying your crocodile tears, it is your kind that’s the most Racist & vindictive , so don’t try to teach anybody about Racism here , you are a Regular LTTE apologist in these columns , remember the article about that stupid british woman MP , who do you think you are fooling?
Try another Tactic see if it works ,this one pretty obviously doesn’t ,
Lanka Liar / February 9, 2015
Helo PM. Good to see you again. How is your Toy Government going.
Did Santa give you toys for Christmas.
Close your shop down , It is shame that Tamils can be hoodwinked and deceived by this fools. so easily.

Eelam Brothers in Diapers:
Way to go, guys …. in your desperate attempt to bring Mahinda back to power. We know you guys are now totally disoriented with the unexpected silent revolution in Sri Lanka and the Tamils rejoining mainstream politics. International community is becoming increasingly weary of your over the top, pushy campaign. Eelam fatigue is setting in. So you are now left scrambling to validate your case all over again. Without a leader like Mahinda backed by Sinhala Buddhist hardliners your raison d’être is kaput. And Mahinda appreciates your work now more than ever. He knows very well that every move you make will only advance his campaign to come back to power. So Mahinda wishes you good luck and Kadavul bless you.

Any democratic government, while being a member of the UN must adhere to the aims and purposes of the United Nations Human Rights Council.
This in effect, is the message of TGTE.
Abimanu / February 9, 2015
“The Karma will chase you all the way even after you die, your money and arrogance will not help”.–Senthil
True–but the ‘theory of ‘Karma’ does not say that it works exclusively only for the Sinhalese; it decidedly works for Tamils too. See how it has affected the Tamils too. See the ignoble end of the ‘mighty’ Pirabaharan (with money and arrogance) –and some stupid Tamils had the audacity and sacrilege to even comparing to Lord Murugan, the deity of the Hindus– has ended in utter shame along with many of his leaders and cadres whom he led disastrously to their ruin. It is also the working of ‘karma’.
Adel / February 9, 2015
Isn’t this funny…a terrorist wanting a war crimes probe! You should consider yourself lucky enjoying the fruits of freedom being one of the key members of the ruthless terrorist organisation called LTTE who killed without any mercy more brutal than ISIS. Some of the other crimes that were committed were recruiting child soldiers to the LTTE, money laundering, fundraising for a terrorist organisation, may have even raped and abused children and introduced the cyanide pill to LTTE soldiers to commit suicide if captured.
You ruined young lives and killed your own people, you are a monster in sheep cloths that continues to thrive. Hope one day that justice will be served to you!
Park / February 10, 2015
Rudrakumar and TGTE, who are you guys? Are you Sri Lankans holding Sri Lankan Citizenship? If not please rest your case. TNA is leading the Tamils in the North and East and they know what they are doing and what they want. They are not standing in front of the Tiger Flag. If you are interested in collecting more money from Diaspora Tamils for Tiger cause, do it but you yourself know that Tiger cause is a loosing battle even among the Diaspora. So mind your business Rudrakumar and keep your gab shut.
Off The Wall / February 10, 2015
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
Tamil from the north / February 10, 2015
Rudrakumaran, please listen to the voices IN SRI LANKA. Nobody wants TE there. Leave them alone please. MR bugger is gone, let the new government work with the minorities to bring about the needed peace and reconciliation.
Manicka Vasagar / February 13, 2015
A referendum will decide, not you or me.
Lanka Watch / February 13, 2015
TNA is in total disarray at a time when unity of the Tamils and party
becomes important as the parliamentary elections are around the corner.
Tamils have, time and again asked TNA to select the priorities correct
At this juncture,Tamil people expected TNA to consolidate themselves by getting the smaller Tamil parties within their fold and annihilate
Douglas/Karuna groups out of sight of Tamils in N/E and if possible,
a coalition with the Tamil speaking Muslims in the East. Contest the
elections aiming for a larger no.of seats and should be in a formidable
position of strength to bargain with the govt. and this should be the 1st priority. So far we have not heard of any such moves taking place, instead the party is divided, one section siding the ruling party by playing second fiddle and the other under NPC CM adopting a strong attitude towards the govt. by bringing the genocide resolution, though a good move but the time is not right.It looks like there are no regular discussions taking place in TNA to put forward a common programme on priorities ,based on current political situation
The Tamils voted out the last govt. for mortgaging the Country to the
Chinese to the tune of 3000 million US dollars and made the country,a slave to China as SL does not have the capacity to pay back these loans
On the other hand , US & India must be thrilled that former ruling party is kept away from China and a reciprocal gesture, the Tamils expect least from India and US to get the current burning issues of the Tamils, settled through their good offices and TGTE should be given this task of communicating with the countries concerned and the UN, including implementation of the UN resolution on war crimes as TNA has failed in their overtures with India and other western countries. Instead TNA, should look after the day to day domestic problems faced by the Tamils. There must be some kind of understanding between the two but not act as one unit as TGTE has extreme views, tho’ they are part and parcel of the Tamil community.
They were forced out of the country due pogroms and ill treatment of the Tamil minority in govt. sectors but they have a say with in the international area. One important factor TNA & TGTE should note is that they should not antagonize the current govt. and move forward with discussions as the govt.is not biased but experienced.
Manicka Vasagar / February 13, 2015
TGTE is focussed that there needs to be a peaceful permanent political solution, and the best solution is to engage the International Community to organise a UN conducted referendum for the Tamils to decide their future destiny.
TNA, the Civil Society, and all Tamil Diaspora Groups need to be honest and now come forward and support collectively and demand referendum as the only option as a permanent solution to this genocide.
The Tamils need to accept TGTE as the democratic political voice of the Tamils, to represent and negotiate a speedy political solution with the international community to the plights of the Tamils in their homeland.
andrew / February 15, 2015
This thug RUDRA sucked the blood of innocent tamils and already acquitted with severe reprimand by U.S.court.He was the one who got money from the gang of Rajapakse and asked Sampanthan to vote for Rajapakse,same happened to prabhakaran 2005.prabha too arrogant of jhis opinions and do not honour other ideas.This thug too deserve a death like Prabha for his double standard.Please keep off the Srilanka,this government know how to devolve power without you.
