War Crimes During Final Phase Of War: Army Decides To Recall Lt. Col. Kalana Amunupure From Mali

The Sri Lanka Army announced today that it decided to recall Lt. Colonel Kalana Amunupure from Mali as requested by the United Nations.

Amunupura was the Commander of Sri Lankan Army’s UN mission in Mali. The UN previously requested the Sri Lankan government to recall the senior military officer due to war crimes charges levelled against him.

This was the first time the UN has asked the Government of Sri Lanka to repatriate a peacekeeper because of his participation in alleged war crimes during the country’s civil war.

“We are delighted to see the dossier we submitted on Amunupure to the Department of Peacekeeping Operations in June this year has now resulted in this step,” said the International Truth and Justice Project’s executive director, Yasmin Sooka, in a statement earlier this week.

“We still don’t know how many tens of thousands of Tamils died in the 2009 war and not one person has been held accountable – maybe this small step can give survivors a little hope that one day they will get justice. There is no doubt this action sends a very strong message to Sri Lanka that alleged war criminals can no longer be rewarded with prestigious UN jobs and in future will not escape stringent vetting,” added Sooka.

    It appears after all Lt. Colonel Kalana Amunupure is going home, following in the foot step of his commander General Jagath Jayasuriya, Brigadier Priyanka neck slicing Fernando, Major General Jagath Dias, Major General Chagi Gallage, ………………….

    Is it the LTTE diaspora strategy to prevent all Sri Lankan military from travelling/serving abroad?

        True.
        Gota stated that about 28, 000 died, 30,000 disabled, 65,000 or more deserted.
        Not bad for brave armed forces.
        Remember it was the psychopath VP’s bata wearing baby brigade which caused all those destruction and got rid of Hindian IPKF from this island while your brave soldiers were hiding behind his fat bum.

        How did your brave armed forces miss Hindian’s roaring Mirage 2000s, invading 100,000 soldiers, tanks, ……………………. ships, ………….. What a brave members of armed forces they had been, were only brave when killing their own innocent people, 1971, between 1987/90, and over 30 years.

        Go help the disabled and soldiers with screwed up head estimated to be more than 600 of them.

      It’s a blatant lie to please the hard core racist in the country Lying , saying the alleged war criminal had been called back , Huh!! What a lie , the news came through a foreign news portal that in fact he had been packed and sent off from his duties by the UN.
      That’s the news !! kicked off by the UN peace keeping officials.
      There’s no point in keeping on UN pay roll after being identified as an alleged war criminal.
      It was in the news guys !! SL news is always good at glorifying state crimes against the minorities and glorify the war Criminals.
      That’s why our country is facing the worst time in history we hear disgracefull news committed by so called Srilankans.
      Wh y the PR companies and the Loud mouthed Lord Nosey keeping quiet instead of singing the the Chorus that only a small number of casualties were during the war.
      All are whiter than white Srilankan War heroes .
      Can never Hide the Truth , when the Truth surfaces it begins to Stink , that’s what’s happening to our Apeh Aanduwe.
      Should “” NIP IT IN THE BUD”. When it’s festered it stinks.
      That’s what’s happening to our country and our people.
      The country begins to Stink after all the cover ups are exposed not only internally but externally and Internationally.
      Hiding truth is wrong and now it’s too late the Covers are uncovered fully and properly.
      What’s more for Srilanka?? Watch the dramas unfolding.
      No good news but all bad news daily.

    That is the path to go. Sampanthar has to understand that Secret Solution is Ranil’s trick to keep things cool up to election. Ranil broke up with West, so now he is with India. Every time, after he kicks on somebody’s buttock, Ranil runs and hide in somebody else’s Munthanai. Election time he kicked on China’s back and was hiding behind West; then he kicked India and was hiding behind China; now he kicked West and hiding behind India. This game works very well in international arena, and especially when the world is evolving into multi-polar order. He explained this strategy in his Oxford lecture. If had Sampanthar too put effort on War Crime matters, now 100,150 Kornals could have been prosecuted.

    GoSL had no option but recall Lt. Col. Kalana Amunupure from the UN peace keeping duties in Mali. We must accept that we can dodge the UN radar off and on but not always.
    We must get out of the UN radar. Getting out of UN is not realistic.
    So we must look inside with sincerity without Lankan Armed Services interference.
    We can show our displeasure by withdrawing the rest of the Lankan peace keepers from Mali.

    Mallaiyuran: So you think, TNA will win. Right now protestants want to take over TNA. So that they can build tallest TELE-Evangelist tower to telecast Almighty Priests message saying I am the only god to TamilNAdu, Buy this bible and pay me some money. Wigneswaran is the Hero for Tamils. He says “Hail Prabakaran”. MAvai – Senathiraja even though he is chased out from TNA because of his extreme LTTE background, Even anandasangaree says : “I can not take you as you are from a different caste”. I think Vishvamadu Tamils should ask that Sinhala Army colonel to Represent them in the parliament. I am pretty sure, those Tamils will be far better than most Tamils in the North. That is how Tamils should look after they themselves.

    Sri Lankan Tamils were the victims of both the LTTE and the SL armed forces. They were used as human shields, and at the end thousands were killed as they were strategically placed in the middle. There MUST be accountability from the SL government. There have been numerous videos of women and men stripped naked, and killed. There are reports of women raped and murdered. This is disgusting to say the least. It is embarrassing to see some social climbers embrace some of these war criminals, and honor them like heroes, when there are strong accusations against them and no investigations. We should not be seen around the world as committing war crimes, just like the LTTE. The previous government dodged all investigations, called all videos doctored, and protested too much. There will never be a resolution and justice for our citizens, until this is resolved.

      Is it justice they are seeking or revenge? What is there to investigate? When lies upon lies are constructed and thrown at us? You-are talking of a few isolated incidences of crimes committed by rogue elements in the army. Those must be investigate and the guilty punished. However trying to attach these videos to our entire armed forces and as things that happened to the whole Tamil population is outrageous.
       
      There is ample evidence to show that there was not a single hospital in that tiny area that the LTTE didn’t use for military purposes, especially the Putumatalan makeshift hospital. According to international law the army can attack a hospital when it is used for military purposes. As you yourself say, the civilians were held as human shields by the LTTE. According to international law the attacking army, in our case SLA can attack the human shield regardless of the amount of loss of lives. But SLA did not attack the human shield, instead SLA attacked the LTTE with careful and precise attacks. So, what these people are accusing SLA is not a breach of international law and is most certainly not a war crime, even if SLA had attacked the civilians. In our case the LTTE not only held the civilians as human shields they also used the civilians as cadres in addition the LTTE discarded the uniforms and put on civilian clothes, which made the distinction between the civilians and LTTE difficult. Nevertheless the SriLankan army accomplished a formidable task of winning the war with minimal casualties. If the army wanted to kill the civilians it was just to drop a bomb in that tiny area and the war would have been finished within a couple of hours and not take 7-8 months to finish.

    Where is that “war hero” Shavendra Silva? He seems to have a lot of blood in his hands. Is he still being adored and feted by some Sri Lankans in the US?

    “Maj Gen Silva, who is Sri Lanka’s deputy ambassador to the UN, describes himself as a “real hero” for his command of the 58 Division, central to the defeat of the Tamil Tigers.
    However, a private lawsuit accusing the former soldier of war crimes is in progress in the US, and a number of UN officials have raised concerns over his actions during the war.
    Last week the UN’s human rights chief, Navi Pillay, said Maj Gen Silva was suspected of committing human rights violations.”. Has he been cleared of all accusations?

Remember when Hindian fighter roared in the sky, the armed forces were hiding behind VP’s bum and women folks. It fell on the shoulder of the LTTE’s baby brigade to fight and get rid of Hindian IPKF.

              Premadasa and Balasingam (VPs voice of Tamil Eelam) both simultaneously asked Hindians to withdraw their IPKF.

              VP Singh’s minority government didn’t want to bog down in little Sri Lanka. He withdrew IPKF. The reason was Hindian IPKF already had lost almost 1200 men in 2 and a half years. Without the military pressure on Hindians IPKF would not have left.

              “Awkward isn’t it?”

              Yes it is. It is awkward to accept the fact that LTTE’s baby brigade kicked the Hindian out of the island, while the so called legitimate Sri Lankan army was hiding behind their women folks and VPs bum.

              Although it was a shameful act on the part of Sri Lankan armed forces nevertheless a wise decision. Self preservation is important than bogus bravado.

    I heard these war crime allegations are all BS. Both Turkey and British had said, their soldiers can not be touched as they followed the govt orders. US soldiers are engaing in War crimes almost every year. Are their jails full of Jailed soldiers. I heard Sri lankan army Top soldiers are unhappy and some have left because, in this present govt the orders are changing almost everday and the order from the president in the afternoon is different from what is given in the morning (God Natha). That look like an everdy occurence.

    Here is something funny;

    First we thought HRCSL was responsible to vet the applications to go to UN peacekeeping. So we thought HRCSL had cook up in the case of Sir Kalana Amunupure. But soon we saw news saying General Krishantha De Silva had cancelled HRCSL’s services on that issue so they did not see the file. But yesterday I saw another news saying New King was blaming HRCSL’s hand on Kalana Amunupure’s rejection. But again today Rapist Army is explaining that HRCSL was not part of this so they were not responsible. Can somebody then explain, even if New King is suspecting HRCSL, how they are doing their job? Why Yahapalanaya don’t dismantling HRCSL if it thinks HRCSL is not dedicating itself to government. If yesterday’s news is correct and New King wants to have the HRCSL to be investigated, how do they claim that they are independent?

    srilankan has done the war crimes against tamils well before the final war started
    .There are mass slaughtering of tamils in north east in, all in the histories
    this all happened since 1956
    New generation crimes came to light because of the technology – and involvement of NGO/UN agencies
    There is no shame to hide the crime
    Crimes the srilakan military done is shame to whole humanity
    Women and children raped,abducted , tortured to death and killed -tamils aware , world is aware the current president/government aware
    trick of political gains to get the vote of sinhalese by praising the criminals wont last very long
    LTTE did the crimes too
    Criminals need punishment
    USA/Aus/uk And other western countries did the crimes towards the indigenous people , they all in hostries
    world order been changed in the current centuries
    Accept the crime, let the right authorities to punish the criminals (Not the local puppets)
    otherwise there is no way the countrymen going to have a bright future.minorities need truth and right of living with dignity-Been refused in sri lanka since the independency
    if the opportunity is missed this time (post war) the country will need to wait for another destruction which will come from the south , there wont be another arm conflict in north east again in future- (that’s what the indians and GOSL wants though)
    Truth prevails

      Sen,
      “There are mass slaughtering of tamils in north east in, all in the histories this all happened since 1956”
      Slaughtering Sinhalayo by invading Demalu started around 3rd century BC and continued from time to time until 2009. According to records, there have been 17 major invasions before Parangi colonized Sinhale (now Sri Lanka). The 18th Demala invasion was started by Prabhakaran after the country got independence. Following his predecessors, Prabhakaran also slaughtered Sinhalayo. Demalu are blood thirty race. Although small in numbers, Sinhalayo defeated all these Demala invaders. Yes, the Sri Lankan Army killed Demala terrorists who were slaughtering Sinhala civilians. They did not slaughter Demala civilians. In fact, they liberated about 300,000 Demala civilians who were kept as a ‘Human Shield’ by Demala terrorists Isn’t that great and a thing to be appreciated? Only civilized people appreciate such good deeds. Can not expect that from Demalu.

        It is acceptable that civilians were used as human shields. But it is really hard for you to accept the truth that the SL forces killed a large number of innocent civilians aimlessly, including the ones who surrendered, which is a breach of human rights. This is war crime and ethnic cleansing and the ones you call as ‘war heroes’ are the chief culprits.

    According to a press briefing given by former External Affairs Minister if the Department of Peacekeeping Operations could examine and act on fresh evidence received from NGO activist Sooka, the Geneva-based United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) too could inquire into genuine wartime British High Commission dispatches from Colombo which disputed the killing of 40,000 civilians.
    Former External Affairs Minister said that the Sirisena-Wickremesinghe dispensation refrained from officially bringing British dispatches to the notice of 47-member Geneva Council. The former External Affairs Minister alleged that there was obviously consensus between the UNP and the SLFP of not using British dispatches to alter the 30/1 and 34/1 Geneva Resolutions adopted in 2015 and 2017.
    Former External Affairs Minister called the National Unity Government’s refusal to represent national interests at Geneva a treacherous act that couldn’t be condoned under any circumstances.

    If LTTE and Pirabakaran are not here today, what? We still have LTTE/Pirapakaran supporters who should also be considered part of LTTE are still active, right in front of UN eyes. Just because there is pressure from Tamil against SL Govt and not other way, it does not mean that UN should make itself blind

    At the minimum these supporters should be chased out of their Asylum status

    They are recalling him because they do not want ZERO casualty in Mali after the completion of Lankan humanitarian operations. We need to give the devil his due.I do not remember any country to have staged a SHAM mission and convince The UN and other international countries/bodies. In 21 st century, this is unheard of and only possible by exerting total control and grip over government agencies, media and bureaucrats for a sustain period of time. But in future this will be more and more difficult . Also now that the world is fully aware of our Lankan politicians who mostly (no exceptions) lie, distort, connive, conceal, bribe and make fool of others they tend to view issues with magnifying glasses.I will like to see Lanka trying to pull one with Trump.

For over 9 years she has been accusing the Srilankan army of killing 40,000+ Tamil civilians, and now she says: “We still don’t know how many tens of thousands of Tamils died in the 2009 war and not one person has been held accountable …  ”!!!! LMAO. Is this woman mentally retarded or something? After dancing the devil for 9 years about 40,000++ ++ Tamils being “genocided” now she is telling that she doesn’t doesn’t know!! Isn’t this an admittance of lying in the Darusman report she co-authoured? Isn’t this proof enough that her allegations are baseless? I mean the woman says that she doesn’t know how many were killed. And why hasn’t she found out how many tens of thousands of Tamils were “genocided” BEFORE she made these allegations? Surely she and the rest of the anti-Sinhalese gang have had over 9 years to get a list of these “genocided” Tamils. How difficult is it to make a list of the names of these “genocided” Tamils? There are numerous different Tamil organisations levelling accusations but no one has made a list of the “genocided” Tamils!!!! The organisation “TAG – Tamils against genocide” started making such a list way back in 2010/2011, but soon dropped the project, as they could not come-up with a list to match their humongous desired numbers of 40,000, 80,000, 120,000, 300,000 “genocided” Tamils!! If there is any basis for the allegations against our army making such a list would have been the easiest thing to do. But since these exaggerated numbers do not belong anywhere near the truth the Tamils and their lackeys keep on staging propaganda stunts like this to get revenge from Sri Lanka and the Sinhalese for defeating them.

    It is more than evident that the kind of behaviour we see in Yasmin Sooka and her organisation has nothing to do with getting justice for some imaginary crimes supposedly committed by SLA, but is an expression of plain and pure malice and is a smear campaign against the Sinhalese as a people – this has nothing to do with governments as it is an ethnic war – the ultimate target is the Sinhalese people. Its like a witch hunt against the Sinhalese. All these baseless accusations of War Crimes and Genocide is nothing but propaganda against the Sinhalese and amounts to gross violation of human rights of the Sinhalese. According to international law it is a crime against humanity to subject a group of people to such negative propaganda, especially a small island nation like the Sinhalese. It is detrimental to the psyche of the Sinhalese as a nation, not to mention the individual victims of these baseless allegations and their families and loved ones.
     
    If a crime has been committed at least define the crime and proceed with taking legal action without staging stunts like this and going on a witch hunt. Sri Lanka has done EVERYTHING right – established safe zones, gave two humanitarian ceasefires in the middle of the war (but the LTTE didn’t let the human shield leave), fed and looked after the Tamils both inside and outside the fighting zones, resettled the IDPs etc etc etc. It is a huge achievement for a small country like ours. We have nothing to fear. So you please take proper legal action without spreading rumours and malicious anti-Sinhalese propaganda.
