Why Commonwealth SG Sharma Must Show Leadership On Sri Lanka

By Callum Macrae

Callum Macrae

This is a vital moment in the ongoing campaign for truth and justice in Sri Lanka.

Tomorrow, Friday 26th April, the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group will gather in London.  There they will discuss growing calls for the next meeting of the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) to be taken away from Sri Lanka.  CHOGM is scheduled to be held in Colombo in November this year.

The idea that CHOGM should be hosted by a regime accused of such serious war crimes is abhorrent to most people who believe and hope the Commonwealth should be a force for good – a community of nations working towards human rights and justice.

That the Sri Lankan government would then become the chair of the Commonwealth for the next two years is even more disturbing.  A regime embroiled in an increasingly desperate and dishonest campaign to delay and deny the serious evidence of war crimes – and the growing international determination to call them to account – is in no position to defend the core values of the Commonwealth.

At this critical time for the Commonwealth attention will focus increasingly on the role of the Commonwealth Secretary General, Kamalesh Sharma.

Many will be looking to him to provide the kind of leadership which can strengthen the Commonwealth’s role in encouraging human rights, justice and an end to impunity.

He can ensure that this issue is confronted. Indeed many would argue he has a clear duty to do that.  If the Commonwealth drifts blindly into allowing itself to be headed by a regime accused of such appalling war crimes and crimes against humanity it would be catastrophic.  But I see no signs so far that Mr Sharma has any intention whatsoever of acting to prevent that happening.  I hope I am wrong.

There is a curious Commonwealth procedure which provides for the Secretary General to exercise his “good offices” to resolve this kind of situation before serious action is taken.  It is suggested that a two month period be allowed for that.  Mr Sharma has been formally exercising his “good offices” for considerably more than two months now.  And in that time things in Sri Lanka have got worse, not better.  Repression of Tamils in the north has increased.  Tamil newspapers have been violently attacked.  A journalist from the Sunday Leader – whose founding editor was assassinated four years ago – has also been shot.

Now violently ultra-nationalist groups led by extreme Buddhist monks  – tacitly endorsed by the President’s brother, the Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa – have launched attacks on minority Muslims.  The country’s judiciary is in crisis following the politically motivated impeachment of the country’s Chief Justice.

Sri Lanka is rapidly sinking into a despotic morass – it is increasingly seen as a pariah state.

On Friday Secretary-General Kamalesh Sharma will report on the question of Sri Lanka’s hosting of CHOGM to the members of the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) committee.

He owes it not just to the future of the Commonwealth, but also to its values of truth and justice – to ensure that CMAG discusses taking CHOGM away from Sri Lanka.

On the webpage of the commonwealth…

http://www.thecommonwealth.org/subnewsarchive/191183/231999/ask_sharma/

…we – the citizens of the commonwealth – are invited to put a comment or a question to Mr Sharma, by sending a message, with ‘Ask Sharma’ in the subject line, to this address:

asksharma@commonwealth.int 

I suggest that as many of us as possible do that over the next 24 hours. Let’s make sure that today we ask him – politely and respectfully – what he intends to do about Sri Lanka and CHOGM.   And if he believes that a regime accused of such terrible war crimes – and likely to be embroiled ever more seriously in such allegations over the next two years – is really fit to lead the Commonwealth.

The calls from around the world are growing.  Last week 900 Commonwealth lawyers meeting in South Africa called for Sri Lanka to be suspended from the Councils of the Commonwealth due to its breaches of the rule of law and of the independence of the judiciary, as well as the gross harassment of members of the legal profession.

That call has now been endorsed by the Law Society of South Africa and echoed by the International Bar Association.

The tide is turning – the calls for justice growing.  The Commonwealth must not be left behind.

    As someone who loves my country its with sadness that I suggest not to have the Commonwealth meeting in Sri Lanka. Allowing it to go ahead just gives the Rajapaksha Govt. the right to ignore human rights, the law and instigate racial hatred. They need to be accountable to somebody and at least let it begin with the commonwealth.

      A shameless servile sycophant, singing praises to MR, while the whole world is aware of the blatant violations of Human Rights under MR in this country exposed in the media for the world to see. Although he alleges there are Human Rights Violations in the US, UK, Canada and the EU, there is Law and Order and a Judicial System for the aggrieved, where as we lack that basic here, where even the CJ has been booted by this cocky tin pot MR. The beginning of the end of MR would be the non event of the CHOGM and the masses overthrow of the Corrupt regime that will follow.

        gamini,
        You are the best white ass licker I have ever heard of. Otherwise how can you talk about justice in laws of the White Man? Don’t you know how Britishers dispossessed Native Americans of their land to eventually seize and annex all fertile territory including the oil rich southern States. Do you not know that scalping of Indians is not a myth. It was falsely attributed to Native Americans. Truth is it was a practice introduced by the British in search of head bounties.

        If you chellenge me, I can tell you in detail how British looked after Human Rights by devastatating a 50,000 year old culture of aboriginals in less than 200 years. How Harpers ancesters looked after indigenous Canadian Indian children by being ripped from tribes to be civilised with small pox Human Rights.

        What I can’t stand is Britishers and Canadians are trying to teach the world Human Right through their CHOGM and you buggers keep licking their ass forgetting all the killings they’ve done throughout the world.

    Callum Macrae has now become a hardcore activist for LTTE agents. Rather than objective film maker.

    He even provides Mr. Sharma’s e-mail address.

    I have sent an e-mail to Mr. Callum Macrae requesting Tony Blair’s e-mail address as well. Asked him whether he has done anything to put Tony Blair, the war criminal in the dock.

    I also wondered whether UK is in a position to be in the Commonwealth after waging an illeagal war against Iraq. And committing massive war crimes there. There has been no accountability in the UK. No one is punished in the UK leadership. This hypocrisy must stop.

    Mr Callum Macrae has not responded so far.

    Please note I would be the happiest if CHOGM is not held in Sri Lanka. A total white elephant. Will only bloat Rajapassa image for no reason.

    Please use that money for someting useful.

    Commonwealth leaders please stay where you are. Do not come here. We got other things to do.

    Cheers!

            And blamed the attrocity on Sinhalese fanatics from the South. World believed that. Inclduing me. I was sure Gamini Dissanayake was a culprit. He lived with that label until he was shot by the LTTE later on.

    It should be now clear at least to some, how MR was helped by VP to become President, after MR paid VP with the assurance that he would bail out VP as MR has bailed out KP. The only thing is, VP was unaware that MR has had another deal with KP to isolate VP and destroy VP with his cadre. Now we see Daya Master coming forward under the UPFA ticket to the Northern PC. Closer to the election the announcement will be made of KP’s position with the UPFA MR govt. So this Propaganda War Victory was a hoax where MR got VP to bury all his weapons and move away from the strong hold Killinochchi to Puthukudiirippu to surrender, where the lot were massacred. MR’s honeymoon with KP will end once the venue of the CHOGM is cancelled. The masses will have the opportunity to topple MR, enduring a little hardship but for certain. So all those arm chair critics let us see how patriotic you are, when the opportunity is there for you rather than just bash RW.

      gamini,
      You again, You should know tht Puthukudiirippu is just childs play if you know that Britain is complicit in the deaths of at least ten million people. All in the pursuit of Britain’s economic and political goals. I am not talking about recent Iraqi wars but what they hve been doing right through, like to support for the massacres in Iraq in 1963; the extraordinary private backing of the US in its aggression against Vietnam; support for the rise of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin; the running of a covert ‘dirty war’ in Yemen in the 1960s; secret campaigns with the US to overthrow the governments of Indonesia and British Guiana; the welcoming of General Pinochet’s brutal coup in Chile in 1973; and I write more of it if you want. But face the truth. Don’t just lick the white ass.

    I agree with your comment except for the part about the masses toppling the MR regime. That is not going to be easy at all. MR and his family’s dream is to become like the Gaddafi family of Libya, the Assad family of Syria and the Kim family of North Korea. How long the people will tolerate the Rajapaksas’ is the 64 thousand dollar question.

      Dear PresiDunceBean ,

      You are one of those regular commentators who make valuable/ witty comments to this blog and i have seen numerous people commenting on Junta regimes shelf life , most of them opted to compare to North Korea , Zimbabwe or Burma , i beg to disagree with those commentators and request to do a analytical study before come to a hasty conclusion. Let’s look at some of the facts perceptively!

      Despite numerous setbacks and disasters SL has always bounced back and this time too she will overcome all these temporary obstacles. Sri lanka has been and will be a very resilient country, SL history is filled with countless bravery, our ancestors never failed to rise for the occasion and we as a nation have inherited that formidable fighting spirit, never giving up for the enemy, no matter how strong the enemy was, this can be easily verified with combining historical and contemporary facts together. King Dutugamanu’s declaration of war against king Elara (rightly or wrongly) , continuous battle with invading enemy Portuguese, Dutch and English forces, 1971 and 1989 uprising ( insurgency) against gross social unjust and of course birth of Tamil uprising to mention a few. if any one believes this junta regime is going to last for many decades to come , is simply misleading the readers. For what ever the true intentions, following facts will also play a major role in deciding the shelf life of junta regime.

      1)countries -US, Canada, EU ,south Africa, Malaysia, NZ ( not Aus )and India , particularly Tamil Nadu’s strong woman JJ and influential karunanidi factor.
      2)UN- UNHCR, UNSC etc
      2) Formidable Tamil Diaspora
      3) Media – Channel 4, BBC, ABC,SBS, many Tamil Nadu TV stations , Hindu, Independent, Herald Sun , some of the Canadian print media and of course hundreds of credible web sites.
      4) Journalists/Authors – Francis Harrison, Callum Macrae, Gordon Wise, Kath Noble, R Hariharan , Tariq A Al Maeena el at.
      5) Organizations – IBAHRI, IBA, UK bar council etc .
      6) INGO- ICG, HRW,AI,HRF,HRI,IHRA etc
      7) Eminent Persons – Malcolm Fraser , Desmond Tutu, Mary Robinson, Nelson Mandela , Lee kuan yew , Sir Ronald el at .

      its fair to assume majority of Tamils & Muslims and approximately 40% Sinhalese against the family dictatorship, it’s a matter of time for the half of the balance Grass eating populace to come out of War victory mentality and see the reality, please remember it was only a humble street vegetable vender who sparked the whole Arab spring, eventually cascaded to many countries and continues to date.

      PS. When it comes to the boiling point It will be very difficult to subdue, tame the angry masses with Tear Gas/ Baton charges, machine guns or false propaganda and equally annoyed International community.

    Oh! Come, come Mr. Macrae your vendetta against Sri Lanka is showing. It is all because you and your crew were unceremoniously booted out of Sri Lanka when you tried to report the Eleam war from within Sri Lanka. GOSL in accordance with countries like the UK and USA only allowed embedded journalists to report the war. The Eleam war is a fourth generation war where the management of information is also a weapon of war. Unfortunately you and your crew were not chosen to report the war and you are still smarting from it. Especially when a former colony tells the ‘white man’ to shove off so unceremoniously it hurts. Just live with it as the days of the ‘white man’ telling the ex-colonies to do your bidding is over.

    I’m of the view “Commonwealth” is a waste of time and is of no significance in the current climate.
    Having said that i believe MR has been “cornered” in all directions in agreeing to hold this CHOGM at great expense to us tax payers.

    I’m of the opinion the best “of the worst” for MR is for the venue to be changed in order that he gets more political mileage on the home front of western and tamil diaspora conspiracy.This indeed would be ideal if he renegades on holding PC elections in the north 2 months prior to the Conference. Frankly, would any Sri Lankans care about the CHOGM not been held in SL?

    Worst Case-CHOGM held as planned with major players boycotting it, but what would be even worse is for the invited delegates to make public statements on law and order, human rights issues in Sri Lanka at the conference.

    You need to give it a rest. Your relentless and very punctual bashing of Sri Lanka on each and every strategic moment like the present one – a day before CMAG meeting – has destroyed all your credibility in the eyes of honest, impartial people. Nobody takes you seriously anymore except your backers, the LTTE rump. And having lost your ability to produce any worthwhile new work you keep flogging a dead horse. Feigned concern and charade will not inspire good work but will only bankrupt your creativity causing you to produce mediocre work like “No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka.”

    Can the present SG show leadership? He has proved his incapacity amply.
    Can a barren woman beget a child? runs a Tamil proverb.

    A cross posting below:

    The Submission sent to the Commonwealth Secretariat is sure to make an impression on CMAG. It is timely, finely worded and is persuasive. It provides an occasion to make amends for the Fiasco at Perth.

    Ignoring the killings of unprecedented proportions, the lunatics who run the asylum released the worst inmate. Invigorated by the clean certificate of health, the freed man ran amok and murdered both governance and the constitution. Why not? when all unpardonable misdemeanours from 2009-2011 were considered achievements of a fellow member. What more? Rewarded with the honour of succeeding Perth and declaring to the world, endorsement of innocence. The prize of hosting is to dishonour the guests for two more years till 2015.

    Not to be outdone the World Body turning a blind eye to three years of gross violations though in clear sight, gave an year more to move from Angoda to Mulleriyawa. The inmate emboldened by universal approbation killed Justice as well and buried all together. A sepulchre by way of presentations at international fora was attempted to be erected. It will suppress the stench and conceal the hideous was the hope. A good whitewash will do the trick is the approach of the Commonwealth Secretariat. The so called Secretary General is up to the task.

    The Joint Civil Society Submission will ruffle its feathers. The SG will get right royally depedestalised. Who urged civil society? Perhaps Burke. “The best assurance for the triumph of evil is for good men to remain quiet”

    How many Britons know that the British govt isn’t listening to its own Foreign Affairs Committee:

    Government Response to the House of Commons Foreign Affairs CommitteeReport HC114 of Session 2012-13: THE ROLE AND FUTURE OF THE COMMONWEALTH, January 2013

    11. We conclude that continuing evidence of serious human rights abuses in Sri Lanka shows that the Commonwealth’s decision to hold the 2013 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Colombo was wrong. We are impressed by the clear and forthright stance taken by the Canadian Prime Minister, who has said he would attend the Meeting only if human rights were improved. The UK Prime Minister should publicly state his unwillingness to attend the meeting unless he receives convincing and independently-verified evidence of substantial and sustainable improvements in human and political rights in Sri Lanka. (Recommendation 2, Paragraph 32)

    12. We note the Committee’s recommendation on the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Colombo, Sri Lanka in 2013. We recognise, and share, the concerns of the Committee about the human rights situation in Sri Lanka, particularly in light of the recent dismissal of the Chief Justice following an impeachment process the Sri Lankan Supreme Court ruled illegal. We look to Sri Lanka, as with any other CHOGM host, to demonstrate its commitment to upholding Commonwealth values of good governance and respect for human rights as we have stated publicly. It will also be important that delegations, civil society and media are able to travel and report freely. The concerns of the UK and the wider international community on human rights are regularly relayed to the Government of Sri Lanka. These include issues of media freedom, the need to address longstanding issues of accountability and reconciliation after the war, and the importance of judicial independence. These messages will be reiterated by Alistair Burt, FCO Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, when he next visits Sri Lanka, and in the context of our expectations for CHOGM. It is, however, too early to make decisions about UK attendance at CHOGM. Decisions on attendance are for each Commonwealth member government to take for itself.

    Might be Sharma would have been bribed and looked after well by the Rajapaksa & Co to bring the CHOGM to Hambantota, the way they bribed Prabakaran of LTTE to stop the Tamils voting in the presidential election and there by winning it. Also he might be one of the Ape Miniya.

    Other wise there is no sense for this man to behave in this manner when a kid could understand the records of these people.

    It’s sure, in history he could go as a man who brought Commonwealth to this stupid situation.

      Irrespective of what post they hold these Indians have the acquisitive mentality, you give them a 5 star food and they will forget the purpose of their visit, you give them some expensive gifts and they will return praising you.

      The Rajapaksas know how to handle these Indians. The Rajapaksas are experts in taking these Indians for a good ride. A good 5 star meal and an expensive gift like a blue sapphire ring is more than enough. Not only Kamalesh Sharma, any Indian can be easily fooled by the Rajapaksas. These Indian are a bunch of jokers.

    Callum Macrae,
    The War that the UK and the US bombed Iraq to Stone Age on false pretences allegedly has killed over million civilians. But no proper investigation was held to inquire the breaches of international law during that war. The President of Afghanistan routinely accuses the US for drone attacks that murder hundreds civilians of his country in the name of killing terrorists. But no inquiry to any of those complains either. In Libya, the US said the dictator is gone and democracy is in place. But the US ambassador was killed with no trace of the killers.

    What amazes me is that you, Callum Macrae has made no documentary film on any of them to date. But you have gone on making a new film on alleged killings in Sri Lanka every year and year after to coincide the dates of UNHRC meetings in Geneva. And that too is only about so-called government side killings but nothing about the terrorist LTTE killings that is know to have blasted hundreds of human bombs to kill and maim tens of thousands of civilians.

    Every one in Sri Lanka, even poor villagers know the game that you, white neo-colonealists keep playing on us. They also know who pays for you to make these films now. So, more you produce documentary based on lies the more votes Rajapakse gets. That’s for sure. When that is the standing of your credibility, I do not think even the lowest level government decision maker would bother to read your write-ups or take your warnings seriously. We’d rather be without archaic CHOGM

    Callum Macrae was not born when Brittain & USA bombed Iraq back to the stone age & destoryed Libya.

    Sharma & Velu speak the same Language. What a shame to find the CW Conference finding its way into Sri Lanka.
    If the CW so called powerful (08) fail Egg on Callum Macrae’s face. Sri Lanka can spare a cake or two of Life buoy soap or sunlight, Mr. Macrae free of charge.

    If the CWC (not Thondaman’s party) is held in Sri Lanka, oh ! that Sharma boy will be all smiles. lets see your Leadership…

    Oh ! evry thing from the ltte Rump, the stake, the fries the pudding are either a creation of the sinhala Buddhist, GOSL or Rajapakshes. They must be one hell’uva manufacturing concern.

    Presidunce – Bean… Leave it to us. We will topple Rajapakshes when we think the time is ripe. But now is not the time. Keep on dreaming.

      Scots are good for drinking brandy and rum, not much else. In their long 1000+ year history they have only produced one genius, Maxwell.

        Scotland accounts for just 10 per cent of the population of the UK and Scotch whiskey is their product.
        IF BRITAIN is touched by genius, then the deepest impression was among the Scots.James Watt (the inventor of the steam engine), John Napier, Alex Fleming (discovered penicillin) and Lord Kelvin, James Watson-Watt, James Clerk Maxwell (laid the groundwork for telecommunications and computers), William Hunter and John Hunter

          More rubbish from you. The only genius in that list is Maxwell. Pencillin was discovered by accident.
