UN Reiterates Need For ‘Credible’ War Crimes Probe, As Sirisena Says No To Foreign Judges

Just days after President Maithripala Sirisena reiterated that he will not permit foreign judges in a war crimes probe, the United Nations has once again underscored the need for a ‘credible investigation’ into Sri Lanka’s alleged human rights violations, which according to the UN left at least 40,000 civilians dead during the final stages of the war in 2009.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon

Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesman for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the media that the UN has set out several guidelines to ensure a credible investigation is carried out and dialogue will continue with Sri Lanka to make sure it happens.

“The Human Rights Council can evaluate for themselves how it’s going, but we want to make sure there is a credible investigation into this. And we have made clear what our guidelines are for what a credible investigation will entail and so we will continue to be in dialog to make sure it happens.,” Haq said.

Speaking at the National Law Conference on Friday, Sirisena said that no international judges will be permitted on the bench to probe alleged war crimes committed by both the military and the LTTE.

“I will not agree to get foreign judges into any kind of investigations into human rights violation allegations,” he said, while underscoring that he had the fullest confidence in local judges and Sri Lanka’s own judiciary process and hence there was no need for foreign judges to be part of such a process.

    The West wants to nail former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, so the Chinese won’t have upper hand in Sri Lanka. Second the West has unfinished business, President didn’t stop the war when the West had ordered to stop it. I didn’t stop exposing the condition of outback and the detention centres in Australia when the Australian government warned, but I still pay for it. Only people like us know the ruthless West. We can’t stop it, otherwise we have to live under minority Westerners forever. Therefore, we need more people to expose their tricks to educate the majority. The sky has to cry to make the earth smile. Some people’s life will be like the sky. Unless they cry, others can’t smile. Whatever money the Rajapaksas have taken, is it worth after all this humiliation and sufferings? However, it is a good experience for them. Now they know how the enemies can get them. I knew it will be brutal for the Rajapaksas, the worse is yet to come. The West punished me, even though I didn’t commit a crime nor take anybody’s money. Just wait and see what is coming for the Rajapaksas. Then only you know the 21st century Westerners who preach democracy and human rights while occupying others’ homelands.

    We are evolving, so does the West. Therefore, we have to think and act quicker than the West. Otherwise the West will continue to beat us. The enemy is play trick here. Wolves in sheep’s clothing in the name of justice. The West fooled diaspora leaders and the smart Tamils couldn’t do much. Likewise the West is preparing the ground in North and East. It is getting a strong network in the name of development projects. Almost everybody is getting money from the NGOs. The West is doing the same in the North and East as it had done in the Western countries to Tamil refugees. The West can’t afford big investments, so it is attracting average Tamils with little money through small projects. Smart Tamils are getting isolated here. This government can not sustain the hard earned peace. We have to bring back former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

          You want to hide what your masters did in WildLife sanctuary Lankawe, but you tried to bring out that you saw in Australia. That is why you are chest beating like your bosses? Isn’t it the law in China too?

          Could Explain why the Port City Contract be translated into Sinhala and Tamil and published for the taxpayers to read it? It is because it not done in the way in China?

        This issue is complex. That may need more considerate discussions.
        And that can influence on everything of the country if they would label us as crocodiles eating the minorities which is not the reality of the majorities. Rajapakshes opinions are not the opinions of the folks 1 to 1. They are a family born with aggressions to go radical against any human lives. That they proved better inthe aftermath of the war than during the war figting days. That may be the reason why current president to stay mum in this regard. If you spit facing up, consequence would be known to anyone.likewise, whoever whatever being said, this issue is not easy.. President and RW are caught by the situation now. But Rajaakshe is accoutable for everything since the bugger agreed upon with UNO shortly after the war is over, for any kind of probe.. there he had signed it.. now to put the blame on the others isnot acceptable to anyone.

        I am well aware how media can be used to implement foreign interests, especially by comments. This is why I prefer Singapore’s method. Singapore has less than eight media, but closely monitors the editorials and comments. Singapore media work with the Singapore government to educate the people. My articles and comments about the struggles of the Aboriginal people never published in Australian media. My articles and comments are not published in diaspora media. The West and its puppets pretend that they follow democracy, but in reality Australians and Canadians don’t even give land rights to the people who own the country. Why the GTF leaders don’t talk about those issues? If they do, they will be stripped from their position and the wealth they created in the West.

          “I am well aware how media can be used to implement foreign interests,” Are you the person sent by Old Royals to create troubles in Australia from Tamils’ side through media? Is that how you gained the above said knowledge?

          “This is why I prefer Singapore’s method. Singapore has less than eight media, “ Why don’t you stop using the unwanted ones for you and set example for all?

          “My articles and comments about the struggles of the Aboriginal people never published in Australian media”. We saw you article about the “The Tamils the dangerous creatures of Asia”. So, what is loss now?

          Me too liked one time Singapore model of implement all four languages as official languages and treating all citizen equal to employment opportunity in government. Further I like the Singaporean founding father Lee Kwan Yew’s comment about you boss Old King. But now I gave up on that. Singapore model will not work in Lankawe.

      Mr. Sri Lankan Tamils, you “The dangerous creatures of Asia”, we the Eelam Tamils never wanted your boss back. Bring him back to power. We have no objection; but keep him with you. We have nothing to do with Lankawe.

      “I didn’t stop exposing the condition of outback and the detention centres in Australia when the Australian government warned, but I still pay for it”. Did you try that in Tiananmen Square? If so, would you have been able to get out of there? Did you ever this try that in Moscow? Then have seen the Siberian tundra? What made you to go to Australia? Geneva Convention? Why did not you go to Moscow? They don’t honor it?

      Australia is the only Western styled Democracy worked with Old King. Australia humiliated Tamils only to satisfy the Sinhala Intellectual. It does not do the same thing to Sinhalese. Australia is the only government asked to release a Tamil imprisoned by Lankawe Government; that is your JVP Gunaratnam. So, show some faith for Australian Government for having worked with you crooks. Australia donated two Naval boats free to Old King only to the Lankawe navy sink the Tamil refugees boats in the middle of the sea. Australia repeatedly gave refugees’ coordinates to the Lankawe Navy when they were in the middle of the sea, and Old King’s navy sank those boats. The boats were organized the Lankwe navy, under supervision of Old Royal Family. The collected money was deposited by your boss in the Western banks and Invested in America. Australia has the 100% details of the crooks who have been loading and sending Tamil refugees boats to there. But never asked the InterPol to arrest them because it wants to save your bosses, the Old Royal Family.

      You are speaking like this because you or your family was not anyone of the 40,000 who perished due to brutal war crimes committed by the Sri Lankan forces. You know there is zero accountability in Sri Lanka and the judiciary is so corrupt nothing will materialize through a local mechanism and will only whitewash the perpetrators. Only foreign judges could give impartial verdict and if not we cannot speak of natural justice when there will certainly be conflict of interests especially with the corrupt judiciary with no credibility.

You asked for in 2009 and got it plenty, but the sad reality is you still haven’t learned. That is why I call you as “Dangerous creatures of Asia”

      We do not need some flimsy excuses and foreign judges is a must. Otherwise the 40,000 odd victims will not get justice. Justice cannot be compromised because one day it might be you are me who will be a victim. Well no one wants to punish the innocent and if the security forces are really innocent as they claim I will certainly say they should not be anyway be harmed.

      We all know including the President himself the security forces committed unpardonable offenses and if proven it will bring real shame for have committed it and also for the Government to shielding them when the victims themselves are also citizens of Sri Lanka. It is for this reason he does not want foreign judges and want the local corrupt judiciary with people of the caliber Sarath Silva and Mohan Pieris to sit in judgment and spare the criminals and push the victims further deep into despair.

      Tell me what service sector is credible in Sri Lanka. Even the Minister of Health when he falls sick rushes to Singapore and has no faith in the Sri Lankan doctors. The series of island wide power failures are due to total incompetence of the Engineers and now obtaining the services of foreign Engineers to sort the mess. The judiciary and the police Department also same all corrupt and victims and Tamils do not have any confidence and we need foreign judges to deliver justice.

      If Sri Lankan judges were kept then sorry to tell it will be a waste of time and money and people will not accept the verdict either way. If the verdict was pro victims then Sinhalese will not accept or if the verdict was pro security forces the victims and Tamils will not accept and past will be still come back to haunt the people of Sri Lanka. Certainly no one can deny conflict of interests with Sri Lankan judges however professional they really may be.

        Give them an inch, they will take a mile. We all know what happened in Iraq in the name of WMD. Have they developed Libya in the name of democracy? Currently, Libya is worse than ever before. I agree Sri Lanka is a developing country, and things are not good as in the Western countries. However, we have to manage with the resources what we have. If we go behind the West it will end up in a disaster. Tamils went behind India and the West for the last three decades. What they have achieved?

          Why don’t you come from your comfy Australia and live in Sri Lanka if you have so much of misgivings against them.

          Sri Lankan forces certainly committed serious war crimes, they are not collateral damage. You can shoot a captured person with his arms tied round his back that is not collateral damage.

          Certainly Sri Lankan judges have vested interests and there will be conflict of interests. In that case there is nothing wrong for a judge to in sit in judgement of his relative.

          The victims will not accept verdict from Sri Lankan judges and want foreign participation and so why don’t you allow the victims to have their say.

          Sri Lankan judges do not have a reputation and judges like Sarath Silva and Mohan Pieris has created new levels of disgrace to the institution they belong and the funny thing is their Professional Council have not taken any disciplinary against them proving all are of the same caliber and are corrupt to the very core and nothing left to salvage. The people have lost faith in the Sri Lankan judiciary and justice will NEVER be delivered to victims.

          Now even the strongmen of the previous Rajapakse Government are going to the UN to seek their intervention and they too do not have any faith in the Sri Lankan judiciary. The only thing they forgot to take Sarath Fonseka the former Army Commander and Shirani Bandaranayke the former Chief Justice with them!

            I have been living in Sri Lanka since May 2015. I am well aware what have been going on. Since last year I have been to many events in the North. But Indian representatives and the Western representatives are taking the center stages as chief guests more than smart Sri Lankan Tamils or Sinhalese. What does it tell you?

            You would believe anything, if you believe that a foreign government will take care of yourself, your people and let you to live happily ever after in your motherland, because you trust foreign power. Certainly, I haven’t seen that in the Middle East or Africa.

            Tamils are not learning from their own mistakes or from the others’ mistakes. Tamils believe and listen to the West and India. Tamils talk reconciliation by trusting foreign governments, it will never work. I am trying to educate the Tamil leaders, but it is like straightening a dog tail.

    It does not matter what the UN thinks, MS will never allow his former boos to be investigated for war crimes. He knows inside serious war crimes were committed through out. But MR and his goons will never be investigated. If you bring foreign judges, they will expose what really happened and MS knows that. So, he wants to put some local jokers to preside over these cases.

        Are you telling as the America did war crime in Iraq, Old Royal must do the same war crime over the Tamils? How is it the preventing the Iraq war crime the Sri Lanka to go for a proper one? Why are you making it as a precondition to investigate Sri lanka’s. You call for the Iraq war crime, we call for the Sri Lanka war crime, why is that not good? All have to investigated.

        You did not see the pictures came out of Mullivaikkal so you are comparing that with Iraq. Russia said to be made a massive killings in Syria before it back off. That is what it did in Afghanistan. Why are you not calling for UN Security council investigation of Russian invasion of Afghanistan?

        In Iraq, all the mass murders were done by the Al-qaeda, ISIS and others. Almost everyday these people were setting a bomb in crowded marketplaces and other area. In Iraq own people elected government investigated and hanged Saddam. Will Sri lanka allow to NPC investigate the war crime by grating them the already defined provincial Judicial Power under 13A.

        Remember, anything done by UN is always signed by China too in the security council. Anything it sign off, it vetoes. Don’t show off your knowledge of how the international negotiations are taking place. Everywhere America goes, there the Chinese vouch off is obtained.

    UN agencies are inefficient, prone to western influence and are incapable of conducting an inpartial investigation. Darusman, Sooka were misled and manipulated by outside forces as was the trial of Saddam Hussein. UN did nothing to prevent the US and her allies from mass killings of civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. UN will not conduct investigations into war crimes and crimes committed by US and allies. To bring in foreign judges and jokers into Sri Lanka cannot be justified. Banki is a puppet of US and as such his idiotic utterances are not worth a penny.

Yet UK are harboring terrorists of another type in their country, giving them refuge, feeding and nurturing them so that they can use them against another country like Sri Lanka that is minding their own business. What next? Burma?

    US for several decades have been setting up and funding terrorists in Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Syria, Iraq, in former satellite countries of USSR, yet they have the bloody cheek to mess around in Sri Lanka preaching their HR rubbish when they themselves care a hoot about other people’s HR.

    This is how it always goes. First promises and then renege on the promises. It will eventually catch-up as it did with the previous regime. On hindsight, and as I have always emphasised, the current regime should not have involved itself with what the UNHRC initially wanted, an independent international investigation. This would have nailed the coffin on the Rajapakses who will not be threatening the current regime as they are doing now and will have left to govern rather than crack their heads to govern.

    The president has invited experts from Germany and Japan to assess the damage caused to the transformers at Biyagama and Kotugoda. Why?Is it because Srilanka has no knowledgeable persons to ascertain the facts or the president has no faith in the local engineers? Either way it is bad.
    Similarly why is he averse to calling foreign judges to inquire into war crimes?.

      Good comparison. Here, MS is a prejudiced party to the Inquiry as an

      a legal matter as this. In fact he agreed to co-sponsor the UN Resolution, knowing this or may have been misled by Hon.Mangala, if not
      its his mental capacity to understand the issues?

      If F.M. Fonseka says he is open to investigation by foreign judges too,
      why should the President speak against it? He (MS) speaks as he is
      more concerned of his local Politics, than 21st century democracy.

      Ultimately, some form of foreign participation WILL be needed to serve
      Justice to the victims.

      There’s a big gap between War crimes (if any) and electricity problem.

      War is always destructive. we can’t expect zero deaths in a war. ( good if we can achieve). reports say 40,000 civilian deaths at the final stage of war. whose calculation it is. how to decide that they all were civilians and not rebels.
      Didn’t LTTE maintain a human shield (probably in corporation with india and west generally LTTE were fond of)

      We should not justify war and the destruction caused to life (and property) by it . We should not white wash any body if committed wrong in military but we should not make it a reason for another prolonged war to pave the way for greedily interested western powers to grab an opportunity.
      So let’s try to solve the problem internally, It’s India and the west that instigated innocent Tamil people for a war. So Tamil brothers and friends let’s make it an internal probe may be a commission comprising Tamil, Sinhala, Muslim intellectuals

    There is no reason to allow foreign judges to take part — unless you want the inquiry to be credible. And there is no reason to block their participation, except to ensure that their report will not be credible.

    This is akin to the argument made repeatedly by G L Peiris that to allow a U N Commission to come to Sri Lanka for such an investigation would be to permit Sri Lanka’s sovereignty to be violated. As a distinguished comparative lawyer, he surely knows that international law, if it to be effective, can never be subject to any one country’s law or procedures. Of course it “violates the sovereignty of S.L.” just as a prison sentence violates the defendants freedom. But so what? As I said, it makes the difference between being credible and not being credible. An investigation by local judges would be like having German war criminals after WW2 tried by German judges.

This war was forced on the Tamils due to state sponsored Anti Tamil violence from 1959 to 1970’s when there was no Tamil Terrorism, State sponsored colonization in Tamil majority areas with a sinister attempt to change traditional Tamil majority areas into Sinhala majority areas, and discriminatory media wise Standardization for the University admission from 1970 when the Tamils had enough and felt there was no way out other than opting for separation.

    The army is all-powerful and will brook no nonsense about ANY investigation into what they did.
    The peacetime army gets the largest chunk of every annual budget allocations without any request in detail. The army also gets pensions.

    Army messes are stocked with duty free foreign liquor.
    Army gets “free sex” whenever necessary.
    Army hires and fires civilians to perform menial jobs.

    Then My3 goes of on a tangent and say that he will not accept a hybrid system. Which professor Peris the leading legal brain tries to repair by saying that the president was not briefed properly.

    The Prime Minister then assures Channel 4 News everything will be ready as promised to the UNHRC

    Now I’m all messed up. One thing the world agrees is that Sri Lanka is incapable of handling cases of this magnitude. Our president obviously still feel obliged to protect his predecessor and just play cat and mouse game with him on a bloody fraud charge.

All the information that they have access to is filtered through the Sinhala media which give only a sanitized version of history, events and news.

Once that is completed the UN can have any kind of investigation they want and punish who are found guilty.
    Fair enough?

      Write an open letter in English and translated into Sinhala and have it all published by all cooperating media; pleased send a copy to CT too so we can see it.

      Thanks for being the first one in the Old Royals Camp to UN.

      If you don’t mind, ask Ranil to sign the Rome treaty, so many things will be automatic, rather than all these struggles.

      (Sorry to see your situation man, you come and go to CT, read it from page one to last, But so far nothing has been gained. )

    We are unable to handle Most civil cases properly. With the criminals having the upper hand cheating people out of their land and money. When the legal system is unable to handle these properly i don’t know how these cases will be handled. One thing is for sure our war Heroes should be celebrated and any war criminals punished.

    Since Independance,Tamils supported united Sri Lanka,voted against seperation even after the Federal Party was formed etc. The two pacts Banda-selva pact and Dudley-Selva pact were agreed without the western or Indian influence.If those pacts could have been implemented, war crime situation wouldn’t have arisen.People like Antany Peter migrating to Australia get citizenship in few years but the Indian Tamils in millions lost the citizenship even after living and gave life to Srilanka for generations.Then one after other came the standardisation. This is how the war was forced on the Tamils by the Sinhalese.Come out clean by washing your blood clot history by allowing international investigation and move towards reconciliation. This is your last bus to change your image in the world arena.To crush the tamils’demanding of rights you need the help of West in the name of war against terrorism but do not want the west when justce is demanded.Sri Lanka not a Buddist but bloodiest country.
