Video: Sri Lanka’s Unfinished War – Frances Harrison And Callum Macrae

BBC Global News UK Preview Screening – Sri Lanka’s Unfinished War + Q&A

Former BBC Sri Lanka correspondent, Frances Harrison, investigates on-going allegations of rape and torture by the Sri Lankan security forces for BBC Our World.

FrancesThe documentary gives evidence of the Sri Lankan government security forces’ involvement in the torture and rape of Tamil civilians as recently as this year — four years after the end of civil war. A top British lawyer says the BBC’s new evidence could amount to on-going crimes against humanity being committed by the Sri Lankan government.

These allegations have come as Tamils flee Sri Lanka and seek refuge in Europe and elsewhere. Many would only be interviewed anonymously for fear of retribution against their relatives back in Sri Lanka and, because of the stigma surrounding rape in Sri Lanka, victims fear bringing shame on their families. However for the first time some of them have agreed to tell their stories on camera and shared their confidential medical reports because they say they want to try to prevent similar attacks on others.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with:

Frances Harrison, BBC Correspondent in Sri Lanka from 2000 to 2004. She has worked at Amnesty International as Head of News and is the author of Still Counting the Dead: Survivors of Sri Lanka’s Hidden War.

Sonya Sceats is policy and advocacy manager at Freedom from Torture, one of the world’s largest rehabilitation centres. She is an international human rights law expert and oversees Freedom from Torture’s country reporting program which has produced numerous research publications and advocacy on post-conflict torture in Sri Lanka.

Callum Macrae is a filmmaker and journalist who has reported, filmed and directed many award-winning documentaries for Channel 4, the BBC and Al Jazeera English among others. HIs most recent film is No Fire Zone — The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka, chronicling the final 138 days of the 26-year Sri Lankan civil war.

Chaired by Sadakat Kadri, a writer, and a barrister at London’s Doughty Street Chambers. At the beginning of 2013, he acted as rapporteur to a mission convened by the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute to investigate the impeachment of Sri Lanka’s Chief Justice Bandaranayake.

This event is organised by BBC Global News.

        All peace loving Sri Lankans must not let their rulers fuel another conflict for petty gains. The world is watching them and those who support dissension among communities will have to face severe consequences. It’s a known historical fact that all forms of extremism is self annihilation. Let bygones be bygone and Sri Lankans should find in their hearts to forget / forgive and move on; start to work towards a progressive / productive society. Those who committed war crimes must be prosecuted and all victims from both sides must be compensated and reconciled. Life is too short to bicker. Time to act with prudence and kick start the ailing economy.

            Too early to change the system of governance, however they have to work with the ‘democrazy’ the majority loves to live by. Hopefully it can be tweaked to suit the current circumstances until something better comes along. Moral and ethical values precedes economic prosperity.

    This is called Sinhala Buddhist Racism, against Tamil Racism.

    ……………………………………………

    Sri Lanka is supposed to be a Sinhala Buddhist Country..were there Buddhist Monks involved as well?…………………………..

    As a little boy, in 1958, I have seen Sinhala Buddhist mobs and Buddhist Monk’s attack Tamil property ….. The Sinhala Buddhists and the Sinhala, Buddhist Monks have got away with many crimes, and it is TIME they that perpetuates are brought to justice and prosecuted for war crimes. The guilty should be punished and the innocent lty go….

    Why, Why there are hardly ant Tamil Buddhists?……………….

    The plight of the Sinhala `DALITS`- Karava, Durava, Salagama, Berava and Rodi. Caste discrimination in Sinhala society.
    Friday, 9 September 2011 – 10:42 AM SL Time………………………

    http://www.lankanewspapers.com/news/2011/9/70564_space.html

    …………………………………………………………..

    The 13th century Sinhala literary work, the Pujavaliya went on to assert that a Buddha would never be born in the Govigama caste The Govigama reaction was swift. Kandyan Buddhist civil law as later documented in the Niti Nighanduwa, placed the Govigama at the top of an elaborately ordered caste hierarchy. …………………………..

    The Kandyan Buddhist clergy – the Siam Nikaya – DENIED ENTRY into the Buddhist monkhood to the non-Govigama. They EXCLUDED THE KARAVE. This led wealthy Karave merchants in the maritime districts to finance the journey of Ambagahapitiya Gnanawimala Thera to Amarapura in Burma for the ordination into the Buddhist monkhood in 1800 AD. While the newly founded Amarapura nikaya had 21 sub-sects defined on caste lines (i.e. Karave, Salagama and Durave), it nonetheless offered a rare opportunity for the Karave to join the Buddhist religious order. ……………..

    Other Karave ABANDONED BUDDHISM ALTOGETHER AND CONVERTED TO ROMAN CATHOLICISM to seek caste emancipation. 50% of the Karave caste might well be Christian today. At present, Karave Christian youth have the best education outcomes in Sinhala society.

      Ben – did you miss the part at the outset of the discussion where the moderator stated that the Sri Lankan HC was invited to send their representative so that the “balance” would be in place? The letter of refusal from (presumably) Nonis was tabled for anyone to read. Too bad that the articulate Nonis didn’t show up. Wonder why??

        See, those who are hell bent on Dr. Nonis, do you guys feel that any of the questions raised in this panel, he could respond ? No…

        Lately, Dr Nonis became the hero among the lanken watchers.. having heard about the manner he responsded to BBC. I think moderation of this discussion could achieve more, if they invited any lanken journalists as penelists.. at least Dr. DJ.

        Pete,

        While Callum Macrae was in SL, he was invited to take part in a debate about his documentary about Sri Lanka on TV.

        He first agreed. After realising he was about to be in big trouble, he cancelled.

        Then he ran away from Sri Lanka, in a hurry. A few hours before the telecast was to begin. He left with his tail behind his legs claiming his “security” was compromised.

        He was offered both live and recorded options TV.

        Callum Macrae travels the world with his Sri Lanka Docs. Bashing SL all over the World. Good for him.

        If he loves Sri Lankan people so much, he owes them a showing on a Sri Lankan channel. He refused. Coz’he was scared of a real challenge to his Docs. We understand these matters are not for the faint hearted.

        Then he pops up, all of a sudden again in London. Wow! With Frances Harrison. With no real opponents.

        Now that is a “great” debate! Cheers!

    Poor Amnesty International Staff. No more funded tamasha’s and holidays in SL on account of the war, so they are trying their best to get back in. Business Class travel, 5 star hotel or top quality apartments, hardly ever went near the war zone, instead got local tamils to do so and report back. Why would they have wanted the war to end??? In the height of the war, I met a Canadian NGO at Yala with his parents, all paid for by his organisation. he spoke of night clubbing in Colombo, a luxury apartment in Colombo, trips around SL – all free for him. Even his parents travel to SL was paid for. These are the people who assisted in dragging the war on, though their calculated reporting.

    That TNA leader R. Sampanthan made clear the TNA MP Sritharan’s glorification of the LTTE and Prabhakaran in Parliament was not in tune with the party line has to be taken at face-value.

    It cannot, however, stop the possible resurrection of the LTTE’s ghost in the post-CHOGM permissiveness than any time in the post-war past.

    A hard-liner who did not always see eye-to-eye with the moderate TNA leadership, Sritharan’s parliamentary speech coincided with Prabhakaran’s anniversary – on the eve of the LTTE’s annual ‘Heroes’ Day’ observances. Ruling SLFP and Opposition UNP MPs were united, for once in a long time, in condemning it. Going by media reports, they allowed him to complete his prepared speech.

    “It is not the party-line,” Sampanthan said on Sritharan referring to Prabkhakaran as a “freedom-fighter who died a hero’s death on behalf of the Tamil people”. As Sampanthan recalled, Sritharan “did not campaign in the elections on those lines. It is not the party line. We would not have permitted it.”

    According to Sampanthan, the TNA’s position has been clearly spelt out in the party’s election. Translated, it referred to full power-devolution for the Tamils in a re-unified North-East, under a ‘united Sri Lanka’. Well said, yes. Yet, a prudent leadership would have discouraged Sritharan from speaking on a day when, as Sampanthan said, the MP may have made an ‘emotional statement’.

    Sritharan was not alone, however. TNA’s Northern Province Chief Minister C. V. Wigneswaran, a moderate to boot, took to tree-planting in the Education Ministry premises, coinciding with the LTTE’s ‘Heroes’ Day’. The coincidence was even more striking as ‘Tamil nationalist’ groups supportive of the LTTE’s cause remembered the day through tree-planting ceremonies across the Province. They chose private properties after the Government and the armed forces reportedly prevented public functions in public places.

    Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister Wigneswaran cautioned that any attempt to stifle ‘Tamil sentiments’ through the armed forces or violence would have ‘very serious consequences’. Independent of his action and the occasion, which Wigneswaran could have and should have avoided, particularly after the party’s line was known, at least a part of his observations merit serious attention.

    In the day’s prior to the pro-LTTE observances, there had been midnight attacks on the homes of some second-line TNA leaders and other ‘Tamil nationalists’. The homes of NPC Agriculture Minister P Aiyngaranesan and Council member Arnold too were not spared. As Chief Minister, Wigneswaran would have been concerned about the safety and security of his young ministerial colleague and also a council member, among others.

    Wigneswaran would have been worried even more about what threatens to be a deteriorating law and order situation in the North. The Centre, the nation’s armed forces and the police cannot escape the responsibility, after refusing to part with ‘Police powers’ under the law to the elected provincial administration.

    If push came to shove, it would be anybody’s guess as to who would take the blame – or who would blame the other.

    Sri Lanka has seen enough and more of it in the past. It does not need more. It cannot afford more.

    The TNA leadership in general, and Chief Minister Wigneswaran otherwise, cannot escape either the air of post-CHOGM permissiveness, or their share of responsibility. British Prime Minister David Cameron’s Jaffna statements, and reports about his discussions with the Commonwealth host, President Mahinda Rajapaksa, did not leave anything to chance or imagination.

    Nearer home, the TNA in particular, and the larger Tamil community otherwise, have to decide which way they would want to go on the ‘ethnic issue’. Their protestations to the contrary would soon become unconvincing, in the absence of protestations and professions to the contrary – and in public.

    The Government, too, cannot stop with blaming the rest, both inside and outside the country, on what is otherwise threatening to take the nation on the ethnic downslide all over again. It has its job cut-out more than ever. The likes of British and Canadian Prime Ministers and their respective Governments are only sharpening the edges. They see the Colombo leadership as cutting corners.

    For some, it is the ‘LTTE’s spirit’. For others, it is the ‘LTTE’s ghost’. Sri Lanka is slipping to the brink. No one wants to notice it. So, no one has acknowledged it. The West does not talk about a political solution. They are focussing almost exclusively on ‘war crimes’ and ‘human rights violations’. If taken to an illogical level, it can cut Sri Lanka either way – or in more ways. They need to look inwards for answers.

    Until UNHRC Resolution-1, the TNA was talking only about a political solution, not ‘war crimes’. It was a Western interpolation that caught on with the Tamil Diaspora. The reverse was also true. Both have stopped mentioning a political solution.

    The ‘Tamil nationalist’ Diaspora knows what it wants, and how to get it. The same cannot be said of the international community. Caught between the two, the TNA too is now talking almost exclusively about ‘HR violations’, military ‘occupation’ and ‘Sinhala colonisation’.
    The Government has stopped talking seriously about a political solution or ‘de-militarisation’ of the North – or, at least, as seriously as it should have been. Government leaders, instead, are talking more along the lines of ‘People in glass houses throwing stones’. It is as true of Sri Lanka as it is of those who throw stones at it.

    Sri Lanka still remains a frail and fragile glass house.
    The Centre or the State, Sinhalese or Tamils, armed forces or political parties, cannot sit inside that glass house and throw stones at it! Worse still, you cannot supply stones to others, nor can you throw stones from their shoulders. Sri Lanka had done it in the past. It cannot afford it any further in the future.

    No evidence has been presented anywhere. All we have seen are allegations from Macrae and Harrison likes using video material that are highly dubious as they come from one workshop that belongs to Macrae. If these bits of misinformation are to be of any value as evidence, then a reliable witness of the actual incidence, if it ever took place, should go to a court of law and testify what they saw. The video video material may be presented to substantiate their testimony if there is no one else to corroborate their evidence. Until such happens neither Macrae nor Harrison, nor Ch4 nor BBC, has any ground to stand on. All their hot air tantamounts to vitriolic hatred and abusive campaign against a small country that refused to tow a western agenda against the nation and annihilated a deadly terrorist outlaws. Macrae and Harrison know it is the bottom line; they know that their work is fraudulent and subversive. That leaves them only one avenue to carry out a media campaign to brainwash people.

    These people are spending so much time on Sri Lanka while completely ignoring ongoing human rights in other counties. This is only because SL is a soft target which does not have the economic power or the connections to defend itself. Just now Cameron is in China a country which has barred him for the last 3 years. UK government has been so critical of HR violation in China, but yet they are fine with sending a trade delegation headed by the prime minister to China. I wonder why Macrae, John Snow and company are not there running around in Beijing neighbourhoods recording grievances of Chinese people as they did in Jaffna. In fact, there was nothing criticising PM’s visit to China on C4. I guess when UK is begging for investment and trade, they are OK with overlooking the small matter of HR violations. In fact, if they try to pull off the stupid stunts that they did in SL, they will be put in jail and kicked in the backsides and deported. Recently, a Sky News team went there to just try to speak to a dissident and they were unceremoniously thrown out and pushed away by the Chinese security, despite them protesting about their “right” to see the man. Cameron will meekly kiss the asses of Chinese leaders and make some vague statement about human rights that he will first clear with the Chinese. There won’t any bravado, callousness and disrespect that he exhibited in SL. Chinese won’t take that crap and the PM, the delegation and the TV crew will simply abide by the strict rules that the Chinese will impose. So much for HR champions. What a load of crap!

    Frances Harrison has lost her head recently. Many people had a lot of respect for her. Not anymore. She is now the cats paw of for a terrorist organization that is banned in the UK. Why can’t she go to Iran and report on the human rights violations in her husband’s home country?

    As for C4 they are reporting often on human rights violation in Uzbekistan, Jammu & Kashmir etc. So it is not correct to C4 say they only target Sri Lanka. Those who watch C4’s coverage of other countries and their documentaries about happenings in the UK and the West would say they are not specifically targeting “A” country. One has to watch C4 before making such accusations. However the individuals like Callum McCrae is a different kettle of fish. One has to watch him very carefully.

    Miller, you do not know what happen in Sri Lanka.
    First you count how many killings done by British during the colonial period. Then hang your thrown first.
    During a war definitely civilians affected because LTTE use them as human shield. Can you remember Sri Lankan army rescued about 300000 Tamil people. If Sri Lankans wants to do a massacre why they rescued and gave them a better life.
    All this white skin LTTE foxes speak for Tamil diaspora money and vote.
    As a country we suffered lot during the war, allow us to enjoy the peace.
