The LTTE Overseas Network: A Bunch Of Sadistic Idiots

By Pitasanna Shanmugathas

The following is a commentary on an article written by DBS Jeyaraj in which he exposes the overseas LTTE network’s plot to assassinate TNA MP M.A. Sumanthiran in two instances: December 12th of 2016 and January 13th of 2017. The plot to assassinate Sumanthiran, however, did not succeed or materialize due to certain unforeseeable circumstances.

Sumanthiran

Never forget, the LTTE overseas network is still alive and well. Had the LTTE succeeded in killing Sumanthiran, it would have unleashed a full restoration and strengthening of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA). The assassination would have resulted in greater military presence in the North. The assassination would have weakened the Tamil moderates and strengthened the Sinhala hardliners. Owing to the political climate in the aftermath of the assassination, it would have allowed the government to quickly sweep through constitutional reforms, almost without any opposition. All these outcomes are precisely what the LTTE overseas network wants! The LTTE network wants to reignite harsh government oppressive policies against Tamils, and Sumanthiran’s assassination may have resulted in the Sri Lankan government imposing such policies. The LTTE network can then turn to the Tamil diaspora and say, “look at the terror the GOSL is causing.” The LTTE diaspora network has the rationale that even the smallest sense of normalcy and peace in Sri Lanka between Tamils and Sinhalese is counterproductive to the goal of gaining a separate state!

Neelan

The LTTE overseas network, time and time again, is willing to reach their goal of a separate state even if it means carrying out actions which would result in the brutal oppression of Tamils, who are the same people the LTTE network claims to protect! The LTTE overseas network is nothing but a bunch of sadistic idiots!

This assassination plot, however, was partially foiled by an ex-LTTE member in the North who refused to carry out such an assassination, citing that if the assassination plot is carried out it would be detrimental to the wellbeing of Tamils in Sri Lanka. Subsequently, the ex-LTTE member reported the assassination plot to the Sri Lankan authorities. This is a reminder that an overwhelming majority of the ex-LTTE members are good and decent people who only want to live in peace.

January 31st is Neelan Tiruchelvam’s birthday. We must remember the virtues championed by Neelan Tiruchelvam, a man of integrity and peace. In Parliament, on June 15th 1999, Neelan Tiruchelvam said that we must “celebrate life”, we must be “fiercely committed to protecting and securing the sanctity of life, which is the most fundamental value without which all other rights and freedoms become meaningless…despite all the difficulties, there needs to be a concerted effort to develop a negotiating framework that can command the widest possible support. Such a negotiating framework must include at least minimal acceptance, by both sides, of the norms and standards relating to international human rights and a determination to restore peace, normalcy, civil society and democratic governance.” One month later, on July 29th 1999, Neelan Tiruchelvam would be assassinated.

    Think, Why Tamils did not have a country during their entire history except for a short while during those five siblings. IF you dig enough, you may find even those Tamils were North Indians who migrated to South just like KArunanidhi and Jayalalitha.

    Tamils always screw it up.

    Anyway, sumanthiran is not Tamil. He is from middle east he even did not grow up in the North and he is from Colombo. He is trying to destroy Tamils.

    There should be a Tamil choice and should be not just Tamil speaking some one.

    when not, Sinhala Buddhist leaders are better for Tamils.

    However what ever DBS Jeyaraj says take it with a pinch of salt.
    He is better off reviewing old Tamil Movies.

          You do not have to justify yourself as it is quite evident that your one of the moronic sidekick of the LTTE front who have lost their balls in their efforts and you are trying to kick start them again.

          Your hate for DBS is identical to the mad LTTE idiots you are reflecting as their agent in the CT. It is not wrong to call you a buffoon and I am sure you are in the payroll of the LTTE morons.

          DBS must expose more of these idiots including the sidekicks like you to develop a healthy Tamil society.

    The impression I had of the author was that he is resident outside Sri Lanka. If he does and pens this article, he deserves praise for the courage to brave that mafiaso network who still taxes the expatriates and engage in trade of prohibited substances.

    True! I too treat Neelan and Sumanthiran as National Assets. Sumanthiran must be protected at all costs.

    The LTTE Overseas Network: A Bunch Of Sadistic Idiots?

    Is that all? They are not only the above but also selfish disgusting self serving criminals. They send all their children to great Colleges and Fantastic Universities, collect immense wealth as dowries for their daughters to marry them off to well to do men, then on their free time promote this rubbish dream called Tamil Ealam. This dream is a dream for them, but it is a nightmare for the poor Tamils who live in Sri Lanka who have suffered immensely. This also ignites the racial hatred from the racist elements among the Sinhalese and gives them a fine excuse to attack the minorities in SL. Disgusting, selfish bastards promoting violence remotely and they all feel quite brave.

      Are you upset mate?.

      Who do you think which dude is behind this?.

      Could it be your beloved CM, Vellala Wigs, who visited you only last month to extol the virtues of Vellala Eelaam.

      Did you go to that fund raiser Dinner Dance ?, Or just sent a cheque to the collection box?.

      Much deeper is the fact that vested interests, like to create fire wherever they see some smoke. It is the duty of the intelligent on both sides of the divide to see through all this and act accordingly, so that both sides do not end up coughing out another $200 Billion for something that nobody living inside this country wanted. It would also do well for all of us to understand that India never ever will let this happen.

    The author lets his imagination go beyond any reasonable confidence limit. He picks on DBJ’s hypothesis of LTTE network lot to assassinate Sumanthiran MP and extrapolates to meet the political agenda of the military and Joint Opposition.’ Brutal oppression’ of Tamils and Muslims is the well known means of the military and Rajapakse supporters to reach their goal. They did it openly while Rakapakse family was in power. The military wants to stop the new constitution being implemented and to do that they have to resuscitate ‘LTTE network’. Some Tamils fall into their trap.

    No doubt few Tamils and their organisations work towards the same goal as JO and the military to reach their goal of destruction of new efforts towards a new constitution. They must learn to respect the wishes of Tamils in the North-East. They have elected TNA to represent them. They endure hardship for their mere existence within Sri Lanka and Tamils abroad have a comfortable life at least materially. The latter must think deeply to understand why Tamils within the country support TNA against all the propaganda of LTTEers, the Northern and eastern nationalists.

    JO, the military and LTTE Tamils work in unison to stop the efforts of the government to pass the new constitution. The signals are that SLFP within the government also want to drag their contribution further to see if they can tilt the balance to holt any advance. The joint efforts might make the new determination of TNA and the government towards a solution to the national problem another mirage.

    Pitasanna Shanmugathas,

    RE:The LTTE Overseas Network: A Bunch Of Sadistic Idiots

    The LTTE Overseas Network: A Bunch Of Sadistic Idiots, and you got it right.

    Furthermore they are Paras, Para-Tamils, as opposed to their cousins, Para-Sinhala, whose average IQ is 79. Both Paras have the same degree of Idiocy.

    When the average IQ is 79, you can easily find a lot of Idiots among the population of the Paras.

    National IQ Scores – Country Rankings

    The intelligence scores came from work carried out earlier this decade by Richard Lynn, a British psychologist, and Tatu Vanhanen, a Finnish political scientist, who analysed IQ studies from 113 countries, and from subsequent work by Jelte Wicherts, a Dutch psychologist.

    Countries are ranked highest to lowest national IQ score.

      Amarasiri,

      “When the average IQ is 79, you can easily find a lot of Idiots among the population of the Paras”

      That explains why the different communities are at the threat of one another and unable to live in peace.
      The majority community base their history, religion and fear on myth and the minorities on confrontational politics except after the failure of armed rebellion.

      Look at Singapore with IQ 108. They – Chinese, Malay and Tamils – are in peace and work towards uplifting their standard of living. The LLRC appointed by president Mahinda Rajapakse recommended all Sri Lankans must be able to communicate in their mother tongue with the government but there are not enough bi-lingual employees anywhere though Sri Lanka is the most over employed country, with 5 employees to do ONE job. In Singapore with all the languages being official, every one is contended. Our so called political leaders rush there for medical treatment and invite them to invest in Sri Lanka. Our debt is hindering the progress and force us to borrow more to pay back the interest on the loan. Still they do not seem to learn. Can’t we learn a all?

      The man ruled as PM and president for more than 10 years and fattened the foreign bank balances of his family members and friends want to come back by hook or by crook and destroy the inter communal harmony that is being built up slowly and steadily. He wants to rekindle the hatred of some yellow ribbon skinheads and immerse the nation in permanent misery.

        “Look at Singapore with IQ 108. They – Chinese, Malay and Tamils – are in peace and work towards uplifting their standard of living.”

        Yes. There is a very good correlation between Stupidity and IQ, and the Per Capita Income and IQ of Nations.

        IQ and the Wealth of Nations, IQ and the Stupidity of Nations.

        IQ and the Wealth of Nations is a 2002 book by Richard Lynn, Professor of Psychology, and Tatu Vanhanen, Professor of Political Science. The authors argue that differences in national income (in the form of per capita gross domestic product) are correlated with differences in the average national intelligence quotient (IQ). They further argue that differences in average national IQs constitute one important factor, but not the only one, contributing to differences in national wealth and rates of economic growth. Critical responses have included questioning of the methodology and of the incompleteness of the data, as well as of the conclusions. The 2006 book IQ and Global Inequality is a follow-up to IQ and the Wealth of Nations by the same authors.

    If it is true, it is quite staggering that they targeted Sumanthiran, who is fighting the case against Ravirajah’s assassination. Only a few we have now in the parliament who can present our issues authorotively and eloquently, and Sumanthiran is the stand out. The thugs who plan this plot have no idea of what he has been doing. Happened to listen to a conversation between the so called leaders Vinayagam and Nediyavan, which was on the net. I thought what have we done wrong to hear this sort of filthy words, it was nothing about liberation just about some affairs that went on some time ago, apparently recruiting a girl. These were the morons Tamils believed will do some good thing for them, do not think they have any education. These thugs are an insult to those real fighters who joined LTTE and other movements immediately after 1983 riots and did what they did to raise the profile of the movements. Their sacrifice was a waste if they were to be judged by these jokers, who are roaming around believing Tamils are still their captives.

    ‘The LTTE Overseas Network:’ are not only ‘A Bunch Of Sadistic Idiots’ they are perverts who thrive on failures and cause hurt and harm to their own people.

    They reduce the inwardly and selfish Tamil people further decay and their mentors are Sivajilingam, Kajan Ponnambalam, C V Vigneswaran , Ananthi Sasitharan etc.

      Sundaram, K

      Please do not include CM Vigneswaran in the above list. His statements are facts and fully assessed but his inexperience in politics fails to see how they can be twisted in the south. Building Buddhist statues and vicara
      ‘s in private lands are unlawful and he rightly points out, but, the vicious JO and the media fail to see the justification of his objections.

      Another aspect he points out is that TNA seems to trust this government more than what it can deliver. The CM is a watchdog trying to awake the TNA to reality. Any solution to the ethnic problem within a unitary government is bound to fail because a leader such as MR and his governor can make any CM redundant and NPC irrelevant.

        Your comments: ‘Please do not include CM Vigneswaran in the above list. His statements are facts and fully assessed’ and ‘The CM is a watchdog trying to awake the TNA to reality’ are contested.

        CV must undertake an inwardly review of himself first. His utterings you praise are the emotive discharges to oxygenate the failed and rejected politicians – the mavericks who have their own political agenda to damage the TNA.

        He must first respect his own party and then try to work with the government to overcome his own hurdles in the administration of the NCP. Mollycoddling the rejected Tamil politicians is his down right failure. He has become the trumpet of the pro-LTTE groups in the Tamil Diaspora.

        Instead of stretching his hands of friendship and partnering with the Eastern Province, he is crossing the Bay of Bengal, Read sea, English Channel and even going further by crossing the Pacific Ocean to twin with local councils in the west to support the aspirations of the conditioned mavericks in the Tamil diaspora.

        If he is unable to administer the NCP and blaming the government for its failures, what is he going to achieve by signing agreements with the local councils in the western countries.

        He has wasted over three years of his Chief Ministership. What else can he do to keep himself busy for the remaining period. He can only make verbal discharges and nothing else.

        I was one those who had high hopes when he was elected. His failures has shattered my hope.

        Hope he will retire from politics soon.

    ” This is a reminder that an overwhelming majority of the ex-LTTE members are good and decent people who only want to live in peace.”

    This is probably true.

    There may be some of their crimes that have to be investigated, but the statement above is one that must be kept in mind, in the interest of justice and fair play.

    We’ve got to compare this with the doctrine enunciated by President Sirisena about “War Heroes” from our side deserving special treatment.

    Lastly there is the need for reconcilliation. We can get that only by forgiving. On the other hand, I’ve not given much attention to to this Sumanthiran assassination attempt. It sounds serious, and we cannot have anymore moderate political leaders like Sumanthiran bumped off.

    A genuine investigation required on this allegations.
    In my understanding on ground and diaspora people not believe the plot to assassinate Mr. Sumanthiran. Most of us believe its another cook up story.
    If its real there are other possibilities such as government intelligence agency itself trying kill some prominent TNA to justify the heavy military presence at N&E or increase the military presence. Therefore, a genuine investigation to be conducted to reveal the truth. As we all aware the SL’s justice system- never bring up the truth and just find an easy target to blame.

    “Had the LTTE succeeded in killing Sumanthiran, it would have unleashed a full restoration and strengthening of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA). The assassination would have resulted in greater military presence in the North. The assassination would have weakened the Tamil moderates and strengthened the Sinhala hardliners. Owing to the political climate in the aftermath of the assassination, it would have allowed the government to quickly sweep through constitutional reforms, almost without any opposition.” –PS

    Is this the author’s assessment or his idea of what LTTE’s is?
    Either way, it lacks understanding of the politics of dead bodies in the country.

    1. The government has a far more potent replacement for the PTA.
    2. The military presence is still strong and I doubt if a substantial increase is needed. (The need will be bigger in the south before long.) But there will be more harassment in the North– but of the crypto-LTTE groups (who are not noticeably strong) and groups with pseudo-Eelamist agendas, perhaps to the glee of the TNA.
    3. The Tamil moderates are badly in need of a martyr. Disposing of Sumnthiran this way will enable one of his rivals to claim right to succeed Sampanthan (the way it happened for JRJ, who was not really an ally of Dudley S).
    4. There is enough done by the CM NPC and Tamil Congress clones to keep the fanatics in the South going.
    5. The government sweeping through constitutional reforms? One cannot be serious! What reforms? The government does not even know what is needed for its own good. Both SLFP & UNP want much less JVP and minority representation in parliament. That is where they agree. But they disagree a lot in details. If at all, moves to castrate the executive presidency will be stalled.

    The LTTE at home or abroad is only as daft as the rest of Tamil nationalists. Calling them idiots will not make the others seem any the wiser.

      1. The PTA, due to criticism by various members of Parliament, human rights groups, the UN, has been labelled as obsolete and draconian. If the assassination was carried out successfully, the PTA would have been reinstated and strengthened. That is what I clearly said in the article and even now, in the aftermath of the assassination attempt, MPs are criticizing the Sirisena government for having allowed the PTA to become obsolete.

      2. The military presence in the North has significantly declined. There has been a good amount of land given back to the Tamils in the North…especially in contrast to the Rajapaksa era post-2009 However, an assassination mounted by the LTTE post-2009 in Sri Lanka against a moderate politician would have reignited a strong military presence in the North.

      3. The Tamil moderates have PLENTY of martyrs. They don’t need another. For example, Neelan Tiruchelvam is one of several. The elimination of moderates makes political settlement of the ethnic question even more difficult which is why the LTTE wanted to kill Sumanthiran…they did not want the ethnic question to be settled under a united Sri Lanka. The LTTE network wants a separate state.

      4. Due to the strengthening of Sinhala hardliners, it would have drowned out the moderate voices even more. Moderate voices can pose a positive obstacle in preventing radicals from abusing power. We saw under Rajapaksa how he amended the constitution to give himself unprecedented powers. If Sumanthiran had been killed by the LTTE..(post-2009) Sirisena would be viewed as not being tough on terrorism…Rajapaksa and his clan would play off that come the next elections as he wants to go back into government as Prime Minister….he would seek to control Parliament in almost a dictatorial fashion like he did as President and he could easily give himself with more power so that he could pass constitutional reforms with far less opposition… Rajapaksa is a bitter opponent of any federal solution or devolution of powers and solely wants the country to be unitary. Sumanthiran and moderates like him have been working with the government in proposing constitutional reforms…eliminating a moderate like him would have been a blow towards getting sensible devolution proposals that would benefit people in the North and East.

        “The elimination of moderates makes political settlement of the ethnic question even more difficult which is why the LTTE wanted to kill Sumanthiran…they did not want the ethnic question to be settled under a united Sri Lanka. The LTTE network wants a separate state.”

        There is no evidence to the accusation of “LTTE wanted to kill Sumanthiran”.

        DBS Jeyaraj speculates as he has done in many other cases. The military always cook up something of this sort in order to justify arresting some ex-fighters by linking them with some plots or crimes. This is done to silence any critic of the military or justify their stay to do agriculture on seized private lands or run hotels.

        Again there is no evidence that post May-2009 LTTE ” did not want the ethnic question to be settled under a united Sri Lanka” The president and the PM have NOT used ‘united Sri Lanka” which means Federal system but only “unitary” that means centre controls the governance. Don’t let your imagination and wishful thinking coincide.

        1. Dropping the PTA
        PTA is now irrelevant to a government determined to preserve oppressive laws. Do you think that the proposed state-of-the-art security law which will replace the ‘obsolete’ PTA be any more humane? Repressive regulations are needed not so much against the LTTE but potential threats in the South.

        2. The military presence in the North.
        The chances of a war are remote with a population now much subdued in its response to national oppression.
        The armed forces are still there in numbers well adequate to subdue any ‘subversion’ or ‘acts of terror’.
        Also mobility is much better now to bring in security forces from outside.

        3. The Tamil moderates have PLENTY of martyrs.
        Not many talks of that dated sock of “plenty” except at some poorly attended memorial meeting. Those are faded memories.
        There are new rivals and a new martyr is very useful, especially when fortunes are fading. Also the blame can be pinned on a rival.
        The ideal one would be Sampanthan– whom the LTTE missed thanks to a family occasion in Chennai –but the catch is that Sumanthiran could easily step into his shoes.

        4. Sinhala hardliners have enough to shout about. the CM, NPC and the Tamil Congress clones are providing additional fodder. Even the talk about an attempt to kill is enough to keep things astir.
        It is not any hardliner who is the problem: The UNP is not in the least interested in solving the problem as is the SLFP.
        The TNA and its predecessors have consistently failed in not maintaining a dialogue with potentially supportive forces in the South. There is an affinity for UNP (and the imperialist West), which is an outcome of class interests.

      sekara,

      “Is this the author’s assessment or his idea of what LTTE’s is? Either way, it lacks understanding of the politics of dead bodies in the country.”

      You have to understand that he is very young and based abroad. Due to these facts he might totally lack first hand experience of dead bodies and the rest of our bloody history.

      “1. The government has a far more potent replacement for the PTA.”

      I also believe that there will be only cosmetic changes.

      “2. The military presence is still strong and I doubt if a substantial increase is needed.”

      The security forces are less visible than before but their numbers might be the same as before. Anyway the fact is that it takes only some hours to bring additional troops from the South.

      “3. The Tamil moderates are badly in need of a martyr. Disposing of Sumnthiran this way will enable one of his rivals to claim right to succeed Sampanthan”

      I don’t think that the moderates want to dispose of Sumanthiran but naturally somebody has to take over after Sampanthan and Sumanthiran. Maybe I got you wrong?

      “4. There is enough done by the CM NPC and Tamil Congress clones to keep the fanatics in the South going.”

      I agree and there will be more such activity election time. Whatever happened to the planned “uprising” in the East? Postponed again or cancelled?

      “5. The government sweeping through constitutional reforms? One cannot be serious!”

      I also found this claim strange and don’t believe in any real reforms.

        Thanks
        I owe you an explanation.
        I do not suggest that the ‘moderates’ are planning to martyr anyone.
        But they can very well do with one– they are such a bunch of cynics as you would have seen from their conduct before the NPC elections (and even now).

          sekara,

          “I do not suggest that the ‘moderates’ are planning to martyr anyone. But they can very well do with one”

          Thank you for your reply. I did not misunderstand you.

          I agree with you.

    Very true! Otherwise, wouldn’t they throw their full weight behind a looser at the US Presidential Election? Didn’t they realize that it would be an election? A bunch of crocs that eat up innocent Tamils’ money and time.

    Absolutely True. Ex-LTTE are fascists who promote violence and death. They are doing this in Tamilnadu even.

    Young man, find out who is behind each journalist. What are his / her motive and why funding scholarship foreign trips are given. This applies to organisations activists and NGOs too. Don’t accept whatever you read or hear as whole truth. There may be intelligence agencies behind those NGOs writers and activists. Learn think analyse and find out the truth by experiencing it before you write or speak. Hope you will follow it.

    Who done it !!!

    BTF Surendran does not want to kill Abraham, after signing the MOU with Batalanada Ranil to get Eelaam for Vellala Sambandan..

    Elaam PM couldn’t do it even if he wanted to, unless Rrudra wants to get a taste of “Water Boarding”.

    That narrows the suspect culprits to EU Tigers and Canadian Tigers,

    With Terrorist attacks in France , Germany and now even in Tiger stronghold Canada, they must be on Intelligence Radar 24/7.

    That leaves only one suspect, who is none other than the CM who was hand picked by Vellala Party TNA Leader Sambanadan.

    Every one in our Yahapalana Land who can read and write know Vellala Wigeswaran garlanded Pirahaparan after his inauguration.

    And he has been barracking for the the Overseas Tigers who are under Eelaam PM and openly breaking away from Surendran’s Vellala Faction.

    Abraham is the mouthpiece for them.

    dear Pitasanna,
    While having considerable regard for your journalism I am surprised that you have taken seriously what DBS Jeyaraj had to say about the LTTE against whom he has his own axe to grind.In the same vein you say quite rightly: ‘This assassination plot, however, was partially foiled by an ex-LTTE member in the North who refused to carry out such an assassination, citing that if the assassination plot is carried out it would be detrimental to the well being of Tamils in Sri Lanka’. …… This is a reminder that an overwhelming majority of the ex-LTTE members are good and decent people who only want to live in peace.’
    Be wary of journalists who have prejudices of their own. Bensen

    …..The assassination would have weakened the Tamil moderates and strengthened the sinhala hardliners…..says this essayist.I am in agreement.
    What would be the event to strengthen Tamil moderates and sinhala moderates simultaneously? Global warming?

      Difficult to provide a specific answer to your question but I believe the role of moderates in any government in any country is to prevent radicals from abusing power. With that being said, where all moderates may be strengthened is where they have reached a consensus, on a particular issue, to prevent radicals from abusing power.as it pertains to that issue

        At the height of LTTE influence in the pre-2009 period extortion,
        within Sri Lanka and more in the juicy diaspora, was big business.
        Many unemployed jokers/loafers became Commission Agents – sometimes earning as much as 15-20% of the take. In Canada and England, some of them bought luxury vehicles and large houses. The “War” created a new class of rich in the diaspora. They milked Tamils in the diaspora for about 15 years. Men like DBS Jeyaraj obliquely wrote against this wretched developmentmen. This is why the remaining hardcore LTTE is against Jeyaraj. With the change of the scene in mid-2009 Tamils in the diaspora are saved from these heartless extortionists.

        The recent visit of CM/NP Justice Vigneswaren to Canada exposed the sharp division in Lankan Tamil politics. Even the TNA was split in the middle. While some in Canada welcomed the move others opposed it. It was the LTTE wing that sponsored Vigneswaren’s visit while the other side seems to have planned the killing of Sumanthiran. That is the unfortunate story of the Tamil struggle as it stands. Pity the Tamil people of Sri Lanka.

    Why did you delete the Thirukkural I have quoted from my comment. Please Google to know the importance of
    Thirukkural and Thiruvalluvar who lived thousands of years ago.

    ” ep potul yar yar vai kedpinnum ap potul Meip potul kanpathu arivu”. This means ” though you could hear from many people ,finding out the truth from what you heard is important ”

    If you need exact translation I seek Dr R N’s help.

      If you had studied Tamil properly at school, you won’t need help from the good doctor in explaining Thirukkural!

    Very tall story of DBSJ copied.

    There is no question that LTTE did number of political assasinations. At the same time it is also a fact that there were a number of political assasinations carried out by the Srilankan government or its allied paramilitaries in the name of LTTE.

    The LTTE Overseas Network: A Bunch of Sadistic Idiots?

    The news was first appeared in D.B.S.J’S article. At the same time, the same news was published in The Hindu. D.B.S was a former correspondent of ‘Front line’ which is one of the publications of Hindu. DBS had trying decorating something as usual style of his writings. But the sound is not good, weather the news is true or not.

    Everybody knows that the LTTE is nothing without its supremo Prabakaran and everybody knows that there are few scattered groups of LTTE is still active among Diaspora. But my question is why they are targeting Sumanthiran while many traitors are surrounding. For example former North – Eastern chief minister Varatharajaperumal who is in Jaffna now and just moving without accompany and Dugles is there without security. Why the ‘Sadist Idiots’ were not targeting people like them? Why Sumanthiran? It is very complicated.
    In the original article OF DBS, he said “Amuthan from Malaysia is actually a former LTTE intelligence chief Pottu Ammaan’s senior deputy Chiranjeevi master whose real name is Jeevaratnam Jeevakumar” I read a news before about this person named Chiranjeevi master.

    He is originally from Trinco but he escaped to India during the final phase of war but no one knows how he could escape. Few months later he was given an interview to Anantha vikadan a popular Tamil magazine in Tamil Nadu. Later he was arrested by Tamil Nadu police but now DBS saying he is in Malaysia. How he could escape form Tamil Nadu police? How he could go to Malaysia? As an investigative tiger, DBS try to discover this fact also? As a final word I can say, this news would spoil Sumanthiran’s political image among the Tamil people both Eelam and Diaspora.

      Arun Ravi,

      “For example former North – Eastern chief minister Varatharajaperumal who is in Jaffna now and just moving without accompany and Dugles is there without security.”

      Have you heard of how useful beating a dead horse is?

    If I read it correctly then Sumanthiran is the one mainly taking care of legal issues related to the Tamil political prisoners in SL. So only an idiot would think about harming his own lifeline.

    As we know TNA is in deep trouble. Sam is going to reach to 100 years old in near future. Vicky is becoming the natural leader of Sri Lankan Tamils. So India has to promote a replacement for Sam ASAP. We like it or not Sumanthiran is that replacement. There aren’t any questions about his talents. But it seems some people don’t like Sumanthiran to become next leader of TNA.

    My guess is it’s a story planted by India with a help of DBSJ to promote it’s hold in SL Tamil politics. Check again the way DBSJ wrote that story. It’s more like a propaganda material for Sumanthiran.

    We need both groups. One is with Sumanthiran to have carrots and the other one is of course Vicky to hold a stick to take care of the interests of Tamils in SL.

    Pitasanna,

    “The following is a commentary on an article written by DBS Jeyaraj in which he exposes the overseas LTTE network’s plot to assassinate TNA MP M.A. Sumanthiran in two instances: December 12th of 2016 and January 13th of 2017.”

    Thank you for your comments. I am really worried about the state of investigative journalism in Sri Lanka. I have not had access to Tamil media lately but have heard that apparently it took time before the plot was revealed in Tamil print media. I hope that I am wrong.

    I found the news myself on Daily Mirror on Friday and then DBSJ picked it up.

    You and DBSJ are abroad. Apparently 5 men have been taken to court in Kili and remanded and even possibly re-remanded there without any media coverage that I know of.

    Has there been an agreement of media silence? Has there been self censorship? Or just lack of knowledge of what is going on?

    Pitasanna relishes bashing Tamil liberation. Here he uses the unsubstantiated writing by DBS J.

    Remember Pitasanna suggested recently, a SL TRC to be headed by a person of the caliber of DBS J equating DBS J to Desmond Tutu. Realizing the absurdity he went on to suggest Navi Pillay thus equating DBS J to her! So much for his hero worship!

    Neelam is another Pitasanna hero. Neelam achieved next to nothing although he was a family friend of Chandrika.

    Does Pitasanna know what happened to Raviraj case?

    Will Pitasanna persuade DBS J to take up the matter with SL Police?

      I never equated DBS J to Desmond Tutu at all. But you’re right I did say someone of his calibre should head a TRC. Someone of his calibre meaning someone who has been critical of both the GOSL and LTTE… and all sides of the conflict even dating back to IPKF. Another individual of such a calibre along with Navi Pillay is probably Yasmin Sooka who actually has written about TRCs, helped produce UN human rights REPORTS on Sri Lanka in the aftermath of the conflict, and speaks about transitional justice. She is quite knowledgeable in this regard. But there are several individuals I am sure who are qualified but, like I stated, in order to satisfy both Sinhalese and Tamil it would have to be someone who has been critical of all sides in the conflict.

    At this time when Sumanthiran appearing in the Raviraj case and if he were to be assasinated the finger of the Diaspora would have immediately gone up and pointed at the GOSL.

    God above saved Sri lanka again.
    Pro LTTE Diaspora scores an own goal…..
    Who advised Nedviyan in Norway? Eric buddy Solheim??
