Sri Lanka: Release security detainees

Apart from the issue of war crimes that I’ve written about lately, there’s another urgent human rights crisis in Sri Lanka:  thousands of people are being detained without charge or trial under the country’s repressive anti-terrorism laws.  Some have been held for 10 years or more.

Please write to the Sri Lankan government and ask that all those detained under these laws are either promptly released or else charged with recognizable crimes.  Sri Lanka’s emergency regulations and Prevention of Terrorism Act should be promptly repealed.

  1. The desecration of graves in Jaffna: Path to reconciliation Sri Lanka?

    The Sri Lankan army’s move to open it’s headquarters on the site of the Tamil people graveyard that was earlier destroyed by the army is shocking !!

    What kind of “reconciliation” is this ?

    In that Tamil graveyard , there were about 2,000 dead bodies buried .

    This racist government is NOT interested in welfare of the Tamils, and the President who promised a ’13+ Political Package’ before killing more than 40,000 Tamil Civilians in May 2009 is not interested in implementing any political package or the current constitution in full

  2. The desecration of Tamil graveyards will not erase all traces of Sri Lanka Army mass murder

    The souls many innocent Tamil children massacred by Sri Lanka Army were buried in the Tamil graveyards

    These tortured souls of the innocent dead babies are still waiting for justice !!

    The innocent War Victims are still waiting ..

  3. Disturbing the dead is a bad karma !!!

    This is not first time though.

    Many Tamils landmarks are demolished all over Sri Lanka.

    The oppression of Tamils started 60 yrs ago and still continues.

    In 1948 when Sri Lanka gained its independence from Great Britain, the Sinhala leaders sought to secure dominance over government by virtue of their majority.

    The Tamil people are expected to be made second class citizens spanning several decades in Sri Lanka.

    Many important policies were enforced in Sri Lanka that would continue to disenfranchise the Tamils from their own country such as in 1956 when the Sri Lankan government passed a measure that would recognize Sinhala as the only official language.

    Other legislation approved would give preferential treatment to Sinhala, whether it would be for university or employment applications.

    Their new constitution even stated it would protect and foster Buddhism.

    All of these actions by the government, forced the Tamils to feel that they were being oppressed, discriminated against and their equal rights were being deteriorated with each passing day.

    Due to the policies enacted by Sinhala leaders, the relations between the Sinhala and Tamil communities eroded and for the next 60+ years and not only the erosion of Tamil rights but also the erosion of the Tamil homeland.

  4. Desecrating graveyards will not improve the image of Sri Lanka.

    Imprisoning the 300 000 innocent women and children in the concentrations camps will not improve the image of the Sri Lanka but will tarnish the Sri Lanka reputation for many years to come.

    These kinds of policies of Rajapakse simply do not work. There are cannot be continuous carnivals and celebrations to mask the wholesale slaughter of 40 000 defenseless Sri Lanka citizens and divert attention from this inhumane War Crimes.

    And let’s us not forget these Rajapaksa’s carnivals and celebrations are very expensive

    With rapidly rising food prices and other cost of living expenses, Sri Lanka could not afford the these carnivals and celebrations

    We just cannot afford a cabinet of 100 ministers.

    We cannot afford an army of 200,000 plus.

    We cannot afford to have Rajapaksa’s goons idling and drawing fat salaries and perks.

    Sri Lanka is not an oil rich country or endowed with limitless wealth and resources.

    There is no free lunch.

  5. On the desecration of the graveyards William Shakespeare said

    “Good friend, for Jesus’ sake forbear,
    To dig the dust enclosed here:
    Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
    And cursed be he that moves my bones.”
    (William Shakespeare)

    Shakespeare’s grave is in the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford and has remained, as his wishes, untouched.

    Rajapaksa forgot about Karma from the Buddhist Teachings

  6. Why the Sinhalese are bulldozing the Tamil cemeteries?

    This is an ideological war to demolish the very souls of the Tamils

    By war, I am referring to the systematic and ideologically coherent practices of the Sri Lanka state against the Tamils and other non-Sinhalese. What we see today is the intensification of structural violence against the Tamil people that began from independence.

    I mean more the structural practices of the state, aimed at limiting and suppressing the thriving of non-Sinhala people. We are familiar with some of these: colonization, erasing of Tamil usage in state practices, and the efforts to limit and destroy the socio-economic possibilities for Tamils.

    The GoSL wants to turn Sri Lanka into a modern day realization of an ancient myth that the island belongs to the Sinhalese and in which the minorities have a subordinate existence. As such, anyone who stands in the way of Sinhala majoritarianism including principled Sinhalese who are not supportive of that project are destroyed.

  13. Forgotten Prisoners https://adam.amnesty.org/asset-bank/action/viewAs

    The national security laws grant state authorities sweeping powers of detention and permit people to be held in secret locations. Security agents, often without proper uniforms or identification, can detain and hold suspects for months or years without a warrant or being produced before a magistrate.

  14. Sri Lankan govt’s Prime Minister claim that they are LTTE camps in Tamil Nadu is baseless.

    How can Prime Minister of Sri Lanka slander India without any proof ?

    His comments about India are insulting and libelous !!!

    Why India afraid of Sri Lanka ?

    Why India allows to soiled its reputation ?

    Sri Lanka does not respect India !!

  15. Bulldozing Tamil cemeteries, urging Tamil people to forget their family members who were killed by the Sri Lankan Forces will only further alienate the Tamils and stall reconciliation.

    We must remember that those dead Tamils buried the desecrated graveyards have fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers, wives and husbands, sons and daughters

    The desecration of their graves deprives the kin of the dead a place to grieve their loved ones

    Well said !!! :)

    The Sri Lankan government needs the fake LTTE threat to subvert democracy in Sri Lanka, to rule under emergency decrees, and thrash and kill journalists.

    Hence this outrages claim by Sri Lanka Prime Minister.

    India should not allow itself to be used as a scapegoat in this kind of set up and should openly and publicly tell Sri Lanka – 'Prove it or shove it'. :) :) :)

  23. Stop the indiscriminate killing of TAMILS.

    Two Tamil Sri Lankan gangs clashed sometime between Sunday night and Monday early morning in La Courneuve, Paris killing one and injuring another, sources in France quoted the French media as saying.

    According to the French media two swords were recovered at the scene of the incident on Monday with the hands of the dead man cut off.

    Report said the dead Sri Lankan man had wounds on his head as well while another Tamil who was injured, was found lying on the floor in the same area.

    Witnesses questioned by the Police also claimed they heard gun-shots at the time of the incident and at least six people, carrying handguns and long knives were seen fleeing the area.

    The motive behind the clash was not known but it is not the first time that the Sri Lankan community of the Paris region settles scores in a bloody way, one French newspaper has said.

    In February 2010, a family dispute caused a death in the neighborhood of the Goutte d'Or in Paris when 26-year-old man was then killed. The victim, who collapsed on the street, had managed to drag himself back to his 1st floor apartment where his body was later found.

  27. Hi Jim,
    Good to see you finally getting back to doing what AI was set up to do. i.e. represent the illegally imprisoned.

    It is indeed a disgrace that these people are being held in indefinite detention well beyond the security needs of the country. Charge them with an indictable crime or let them go.

  30. Prison massacres in Sri Lanka
    Prison massacres in Sri Lanka have occurred in regular intervals since the inception of the civil conflict from 1983.
    The first recorded incident was during the Black July pogrom of 1983, at the Welikada high security prison in which 53 minority Tamil political detainees were hacked to death by their fellow Sinhalese prisoners.
    The second incident happened in 2000 when 26 young minority Tamil detainees were massacred by Sinhalese villages at the Bindunuwewa low security detention center.
    There was also a prison massacre in which 3 minority Tamil detainees were massacred at the Kalutara high security detention center.
    No-one has been held responsible for these acts. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prison_massacres_in_

    Sri Lanka: Thousands of Tamils still detained, torture alleged

  31. SL Attorney General delays response to Tamil political prisoners
    The Sri Lankan Attorney General’s Department has been inordinately delaying to process the requests made by Tamil political detainees being held in prisons in the South to transfer them to prisons in Jaffna as they fear attacks on them following the recent ethnic attacks in Anuradhapura.

    The political prisoners, detained for long periods of time without being released for want of evidence or not being indicted in courts, have expressed their dismay at the discriminative attitude of the Sri Lankan Attorney General’s Department towards them. http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&art

    One of the prisoners is 52-year-old K. Devadasan. A former State Film Corporation director, he was abducted in April 2008 in Kotahena, a Colombo neighbourhood, by a group of unidentified militia men or security forces who travelled in a white van. http://www.wsws.org/articles/2010/jan2010/sril-j2

    Tamils were seized by military personnel, other state agents or pro-government auxiliaries, brutalized, and later turned over to the police for detention. This terror campaign has even been extended to media persons who criticised the government’s actions.

  47. Canadian held for abduction and killing of wife in Jaffna

    The police are questioning a Canadian, Selvathurai Kuhadhas, in connection with the alleged abduction and murder of his wife, Kuhadas Shanthini (37) and the abduction of his 15-year-old son Kuhadhas Ruban in Jaffna last Sunday (March 6).

    The suspect had used a hired white van bearing the number 253-3852 to carry out the abduction with the help of two killers. The military and the police are searching for the suspects allegedly involved in many criminal activities in the area.
    Responding to a query, the official said that due to the swift action taken by Headquarters of the 52 Division had thwarted the suspect’s plan to flee the peninsula with his accomplices leaving the military to take the blame. Had they fled, the Army would have had to take the rap, the official said.

    Investigators said that the chief suspect had arrived in Sri Lanka last week and reached Chavakachcheri on Sunday (March 6). The two contract killers had joined him in Vavuniya. The police are also looking for those who had helped the main suspect to hire the killers.

    The three member gang had abducted Shanthini and Ruban from a house at Meesalai east and taken them to a remote place in Chavakachcheri, where Shanthini was killed, while Ruban was held at gun point, sources said.
    The police said that the gang had used a bicycle chain to strangle her to death. Subsequently the gang had left the boy at a lodge in close proximity to the Jaffna Kachcheri. The arrest of Selvathurai led to the quick rescue of Ruban and the arrest of the woman who allegedly took charge of the boy at the lodge. The police said that the driver of the van identified as Raja, too, had been arrested.

    Leave our women alone.

  48. Canadian held for abduction and killing of wife in Jaffna

    The police are questioning a Canadian, Selvathurai Kuhadhas, in connection with the alleged abduction and murder of his wife, Kuhadas Shanthini (37) and the abduction of his 15-year-old son Kuhadhas Ruban in Jaffna last Sunday (March 6).

    The suspect had used a hired white van bearing the number 253-3852 to carry out the abduction with the help of two killers. The military and the police are searching for the suspects allegedly involved in many criminal activities in the area.

  49. Kerala tightens vigil on T.N. border to curb LTTE activities
    Intelligence inputs say cadres tried to set up camps in Idukki forests

    The Intelligence Bureau is keeping a vigil on the movement of suspected persons in the border areas of Tamil Nadu after it received inputs that members of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam had reportedly tried to set up camps in the forest areas near Idukki district.

    Highly placed sources said there were chances of setting up such camps in the forest areas and adjoining villages as it would give them cover, adding Sri Lankan Tamils could be easily identified in Tamil Nadu by their dialect.
    The chances of using airports in Kerala for transit were monitored after Sri Lanka clamped down on the group's activities. The sources said the airports could be used by certain overseas sponsors of the group to keep channels of communication open.
    Idukki's forest areas bordering Tamil Nadu in the Periyar Tiger Reserve (PTR) could be used by the cadres to regroup. It is estimated that about 1,000 Sri Lankan Tamils live in Pachakkanam Gavi inside the PTR where they had been repatriated as part of a rehabilitation pact signed by the then Sri Lankan Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike and her Indian counterpart Jawaharlal Nehru. They work in the cardamom plantations of the Kerala Forest Development Corporation Ltd.
    Intelligence sources said a large number of repatriates had migrated to Tamil Nadu and there was a remote chance of communication between them and members of the LTTE.

  50. Well, the war is over , and the so-called “political solution” becomes a distant daydream with each passing day. The reality is that the North and East consist of prime real estate, to be auctioned off one piece at a time to carefully chosen bidders, with the resulting commissions lining the bulging pockets of the Temple Trees crowd and their cronies. That is the only reason why HSZ’s have yet to be dismantled, and why 40,000 soldiers are still stationed in Jaffna. There is indeed a chauvinist/nationalist element to this, but the latter exists merely as a diversion to placate the Southern masses, that need continued reassurance that their perennial fear of Tamil separatism is indeed justified. I don’t know about the Tamils, but the Rajapakse’s are well-equipped to take advantage of the economic “opportunities” brought by the prospect of “development.” Any political solution which truly empowered the Tamils would, of course, negate all this – which is exactly why such a political solution does not exist, and, given wealthy China’s new found affection for prime real estate in SL – is unlikely to materialize for quite a while.

  52. Rulers of Sri Lanka are continuing to vomit out worms of lies to justify their atrocities against innocent lives.
    Why do they lie?
    Because they had many hidden agendas behind this dirty war. They want to hide the atrocities that are being committed against innocent civilians. They themselves know, what they are doing is wrong and not acceptable in a civilised world.

  55. Government of Sri Lanka says that suspected Tamil Tiger detainees who surrendered with white flags to Sri Lankan Army cannot be treated under the ‘International Law’.
    The watchdog says the detention of nearly 8,000 rebel ( Previously anounced as 11,000 by the government) suspects for One Year and 4 Months without a trial is perhaps “the largest mass detention in the world”.
    It is suspected that more than 3,000 surrendered LTTE members ‘MISSING’ were killed by the Sri Lankan army after they surrendered.
    “We are an independent Nation. We are NOT going to bow down to foreign powers in order to get Aid” the Minister told the BBC Sinhala Service.

    Number of war crimes that had been committed by the Sri Lankan forces is more than what Saddam Hussein did to the Kurdish people.
    Surrendered rebels with white flags were executed and thousands of wounded civilians were killed without mercy. Serious war crimes have been committed and the culprits are not just Sri Lankan forces but some Indian security experts, Sri Lankan and Indian politicians and UN officers.
    Banned weapons (cluster and phosphorus bombs) were used against innocent men, women and children. Red Cross workers were killed. The same hospitals were repeatedly bombed. Buildings and properties were destroyed by very powerful bombs.

  59. I am still amazed that the Sri Lankan Government has not apologized for that barbaric act.

    Sri Lanka Armed Forces paraded naked and badly mutilated bodies of the Tamils in the Buddhist “Holy” city – Anuradhapura – for all to see !!

    Do you know what would happen if the Americans and NATO paraded naked bodies of Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq?

    There would be riots for months (remember the Muhammed cartoon riots?).

    People made such a fuss about Abu Grahib, even though the American Defense Minister, Donald Rumsfeld, personally apologized, and many of the soldiers involved were given long prison sentences after a thorough investigation.

    But Abu Grahib happens everyday in Sri Lanka!

    No one is punished – the incident is not even acknowledged by the relevant authorities.

    It’s a real shame for Sri Lanka !!!!!

  60. Dear Eezham Citizens,

    With the Ongoing Problems in the Middle East, the Situation in Japan and Scope Creep, we need to put your Virtual Case File on the Back Burner…

  61. Torture of the prisoners in Sri Lanka

    “Abu Grahib happens every day in Sri Lanka”

    I think, torture in Sri Lanka is worse than in Abu Grahib. Sri Lanka brutality and torture is another illustration of the exceptional collapse of the rule of law in the country. A mentally retarded, A. Mohan (25) was severely tortured on 15 February 2011. He was beaten , kicked all over his body and in the head. He end up in the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital with broken bones. The mentally disabled was tortured in the cruelest manner for what was, in fact, a minor matter that could have been easily resolved. There is no doubt in my mind this is all due to his mental illness.

    This laughable incident and cruel torture that follows it is a too common occurrence in Sri Lanka , unfortunately. The torture victim went to a shop owned by Ranaweera which and asked for a bottle of Fanta (a soft drink). The shop owner gave him a bottle which Mohan drank before returning it to the shop owner. He remained at the shop talking with the owner and other customers. He then left the shop forgetting to pay the price for the drink. And tor this… poor retarded man tortured, beaten, kicked and humiliated by obscene , degraded language

  67. Attempted assassination of opposition politician in Sri Lanka is another illustration of the exceptional collapse of the rule of law in the country.

    Tamil Parliamentarian ,Sivagnanam Sritharan traveled in a vehicle on a Sri Lanka highway.

    The unnumbered "white van" was parked by the roadside. Two men in denim trousers and white tee- shirts were standing by the vehicle.

    As the van proceeded the two men in white drew out pistols and began firing at the front of the vehicle.

    Two shots pierced the windscreen. Alarmed but alert, the driver began to accelerate.

    The would be assassins were now seen with a hand grenade each. As the vehicle drew near one of the men pulled the clip and tossed it in front.

    The other tried to roll the grenade under the van. Thereafter they drew back and continued to fire at the van.

    Sri Lanka Police response to the assassination attempt was rather lethargic

  68. Sri Lanka Army rape torture kill Tamil women

    Tamil women have borne the brunt of the Sri Lanka Army brutality

    There are over 89,000 war widows in the Tamil areas in the North and East

    Tamil women are made destitute by a cruel and repressive Rajapaksa regime are now being subjected to violence, rape, starvation

    This impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators of violence in Sri Lanka.

    The high level of corruption, lawlessness and the decriminalisation of rape in Sri Lanka had left Tamil women with deep emotional and physical scars while depriving them of their sense of justice and any belief in the Sri Lanka legal system ruled by law.

    Today, 21 months after the end of the civil war, people in the North and East are living under subjugation and heavy military presence.

    Tamil women and children are prime target of abductions, extrajudicial killings, torture and gang rape.

    Reports in the UK Guardian in December 2010 referred to paramilitary groups operating prostitution rings for Sri Lankan soldiers out of camps where internally displaced Tamils are being kept.

    The UK Channel 4 video releases in December 2010 have revealed the identity of soldiers involved in the murder of a Tamil woman called Shobana, who was stripped naked, hands tied behind her back and shot dead.

    She had been gang raped and brutally murdered by the Sri Lanka’s armed forces.

    It is known that the 27 year old Tamil journalist was a mother of an infant.

    The gruesome murder of Ushaleni who worked for the media with Shobana shows that no Tamil woman, whether elderly or young, is safe in the hands of the brutal Sri Lankan Government forces.

  72. Mango’s “proof” :) :) :) about the Jim McDonald’s so-called lies was a link to an article by Rajiva Wijesinha http://www.lankamission.org/content/view/1563/49/

    Basically, it is a hearsay by Rajiva Wijesinha and not independent inquiries into the matter.

    Jim McDonald’s did a good job to demolish Mango’s fluff.

    I think, it is not OK to accuse someone of lying without any proof

  73. Sri Lanka's prime minister has retracted his suggestion that the Tamil Tiger rebels were being revived in camps in southern India.

    Why Sri Lanka's prime minister lied about India ?

    Because Sri Lanka Repressive Regime always get away with it .

    They vomit out worms of lies about India and expected to get away with it,

    Sri Lanka Government liars are continuing to vomit out worms of lies to justify their atrocities against 40 000 innocent Hindus deaths and already got away with it..

    Sri Lanka President Rajapaksa lied on numerous occasions that they were “ ZERO” casualties in the Sri Lanka War and got away with it

Zafiri whines again (does he ever stop whining?) that this is a ‘calumny’ & ‘libellous’ (94min). Zafiri has the bare-faced cheek to talk about ‘libel’! Has he forgotten AI’s lies and calumnies about Sri Lanka? “

  78. A Tamil child was inprisoned at 14 yrs and has been in Sri Lanka jail for 18 years without any charges framed against him

    Another Tamil has been produced in Sri Lanka court for 429 times but without framing charges against him.

    Many Tamils are languishing in Sri Lanka jails for more than 10 years without charges are framed against them.

    Sri Lanka government should either to frame charges against them or release them by respecting their human rights

  79. Tamil child is in prison for 18 yrs- no charge yet !!!

    Where is Justice for Tamils in Sri Lanka !!

  80. Sri Lanka’s prime minister has retracted his suggestion that the Tamil Tiger rebels were being revived in camps in southern India.

    Why Sri Lanka’s prime minister lied about India ?

    Because Sri Lanka Repressive Regime always get away with it .

    They vomit out worms of lies about India and expected to get away with it,

    Sri Lanka Government liars are continuing to vomit out worms of lies to justify their atrocities against 40 000 innocent Hindus deaths and already got away with it..

    Sri Lanka President Rajapaksa lied on numerous occasions that they were “ ZERO” casualties in the Sri Lanka War and got away with it

  81. Ahh another comment by Mango – A Sri Lanka Spin Doctor !!

    Mango has been harassing Amnesty International for 21 months now .

  85. @Vitutalai
    Jim's cluster bomb lie still stands. As comprehension appears not to be your strong point, let me make it really simple for you.

    In Jim's own words: "…..Do the army commanders in Colombo know for a fact that some lower ranking officers or troops in the north didn't use the cluster bombs?"

    My note to Jim: Cluster bombs are air-delivered munitions. Low ranking troops can't just jump into a fighter-bomber with cluster bombs and take on their own targets. :) :) :) The cluster bomb lie was comprehensively refuted by January 2009.

    Jim hasn't demolished the cluster bomb lie because he can't.

    p.s. if you know of any way for me to be paid by the SL Govt, drop me an email.

  86. The thought that the Sri Lanka state has lost its mind and is punishing so many innocent Tamil people is intolerable!!!!

  87. The war is won . Sri Lanka government assures tourists and investors that the country is as safe as paradise.

    But each month the dead Tiger is carefully resurrected, as Sri Lanka’s draconian Emergency Law comes up for renewal in parliament. In this month’s version of the ‘Undead Tiger,’ Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne announced that the LTTE is secretly operating three training camps in Tamil Nadu! This piece of absurdist political-theatre about an Undead Tiger is critical to the success of the Rajapaksa project; it enables the Ruling Family to nourish a siege-mentality in the Sinhala South and justify the continued existence of the Emergency, in post-war Sri Lanka.

    Despots need a perilous world, a world menaced by known and nameless foes, from within and without. They need frightened populaces, who will consent to subjugation, in return for illusions of stability and security. Thus despots seek to manufacture consent for anti-democratic rule by manufacturing national threats, via ‘bogeyman/gonybilla tactics.’

    Despots feel unsafe with thinking populaces capable of forming informed judgements and making measured decisions. They want their populaces to be numbed (politically, intellectually and morally) with suspicion and dread. Despotic rulers cannot co-exist with independent citizens; they need dependent subjects who accept their worldviews and their interpretations unquestioningly. Like the Wizard of Oz, despotic-rulers need their populaces to wear reality-distorting politico-psychological spectacles. Anyone who resists participating in these exercises of mass self-deception is regarded as an enemy, and dealt with accordingly.

    So Sri Lanka’s Ruling Family needs a spectral Tiger to haunt the collective psyche of the Sinhalese and compel them to consent to anti-democratic laws, autocracy-enabling constitutional amendments and repressive practices. According to the latest Amnesty International report, “Thousands of people are languishing in detention without charge or trial under Sri Lanka’s repressive anti-terrorism laws. Sometimes held in secret prisons, they are vulnerable to a whole range of abuses including torture or being killed in custody” (Forgotten Prisoners).

  88. The LLRC in Sri Lanka… what a joke. :)

    Sri Lankan politicians have become like the late Yassar Arafat of whom it was said he never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

    Basically… the Sri Lanka is run by criminals posing as Sinhalese nationalists.

  89. Ban Ki-moon excels in double standards
    We have always held the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in scant regard. His recent pronouncement on Gaddafi’s crimes against humanity viewed in relation to the massacres of innocent Tamil civilians in Sri Lanka between January and May 2009 smacks of double standards. This is no surprise to us. Nevertheless, we wish to place this instance on record. In our estimation he is the worst and the most despicable Secretary General that the UN has ever had. To say the least, he is ineffective and lacks the slightest modicum of integrity. What is worse is that he is surrounded by unscrupulous persons who can stop in our view to the lowest depths as water seeking its own level. He was brought into office because the former US president George W Bush wanted a person lacking in spine. It is apparent that Moon’s agenda are never on the Table but always under it :)

  90. We Eezham Tamils should stick together

    A section of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) has revolted against V. Rudrakumaran, the self-appointed Prime Minister of the organisation causing chaos among various Diaspora factions.

    The rebel group consists of 34 self-styled MPs based in Australia (3), Canada (6), France (3), Germany (7), Italy (1), Denmark (3), Norway (3), Sweden (1) and UK (7).

    The TGTE comprised 102 ‘MPs’ based in various parts of the world. Since the conclusion of the war in May 2009, the US-based one-time legal advisor to the LTTE, Rudrakumaran had spent millions of dollars on the ‘TGTE project.’ He tried to exploit the arrest and extradition of Selvarasa Pathmanathan aka ‘KP’ to Colombo in Aug. 2009 to promote TGTE as a government in exile.

    The rebel ‘MPs’ of the TGTE had ignored a request by ‘Speaker’ Pon Balraj of the TGTE to reaffirm their commitment to the ‘government in exile’ by Mar. 5, 2011. Sources said that Balraj had requested rebels to get in touch with him via email at Speaker@tgte.org or Pon.balarajan@tgte.org.

    The TGTE’s rebel group has already established a new political wing and aligned itself with Norway-based Perinpanayagam Sivaparan aka Nediyawan, widely believed to be Rudrakumaran’s main challenger. Sources said the split in the TGTE had strengthened Nediyawan’s efforts to oust Rudrakumaran.

  91. Here is a post war Sri Lankan story from the Jaffna peninsula, with all the actors and props – Local Tamils, Abductions, White vans, Security Forces, Diaspora and Staged Disappearance.
    —————————-
    With the end of the three -decade conflict, a large number of Tamils living abroad is arriving daily to see their native places in the Jaffna peninsula.

    Most of the Tamil expatriates are returning to their birthplace to renew their relationship with their kith and kin and to assess the state of their assets which had due to the three- decades of terror that gripped the country.

    Tamil expatriates
    The current influx of Tamil expatriates into the peninsula has created an atmosphere of family reunion and healthy interactions among foreign returnees and their friends and relatives in the region.

    Unlike the other returnees, forty-two-year-old Selvathurai Kuhadhas came to his native home town Chavakachcheri in Jaffna a few weeks ago with an ulterior motive – to get rid of his ex-wife Shanthini who had divorced him in India, three years ago.

    Kuhadhas and Shanthini have a fifteen-year-old son, Ruban who lived with his mother most of the time when his father was in Canada. Shanthini and her son Ruban were in South India until she got her divorce from Kuhadhas.

    An alleged extra marital affair Kuhadhas developed with his brother’s wife’s sister, is believed to have led to the divorce between Kuhadhas and Shanthini.

    Since the break-up of his marriage, Kuhadhas was planning to take the woman whom he was involved with to Canada.

    Returned
    A few weeks ago, Kuhadhas who is said to be a qualified engineer returned to Colombo from Canada with a malicious plan to fulfil his intention of taking the woman whom he was involved with him to Canada and to acquire the assets he and Shanthini owned before their divorce.

    Soon after arrival in Colombo, Kuhadhas got in touch with a person called Raja who is alleged to have links with the underworld.

    Driver of the white van, Raja

    Kuhadhas’s plan to kill his wife was two-pronged. He had worked it out with his new-found allies in Colombo to execute it in such a way in order to get rid of his wife on the one hand and to create an impression on the other, that the killing was committed by the Security Forces, he used the `white van’ ploy to abduct Shanthini.

    To go ahead with his plan Kuhadhas had hired a white coloured van bearing the number 253-3852. He obtained the van in Wellawatte, Colombo.

    With the end of the conflict in the North certain vicious elements spearheaded rumours to discredit the Security Forces saying that `white vans’ were used by them to abduct civilians. However, the Security Forces Command in Jaffna had countered these vicious rumours on several occasions in the past and even apprehended criminals who were involved in criminal activity by creating an adverse impression on the Security Forces personnel in the North. But Kuhadhas who was not aware about the precautionary measures and the alertness of the Security Forces personnel in the North, embarked on his `crafty’ plan by using a `white van’ which he had hired from Colombo.

    On that fateful day on March 6, Sunday he went to his ex-wife Shanthini’s house in Meesalai East in the Chavakachcheri district.

    Kuhadhas got down from the van and dragged Shanthini and their son Ruban forcibly into the van.

    Cries raised
    Despite the cries raised by the neighbourhood, Kuhadhas’s `white van’ whisked the two victims and disappeared from the scene. The incident took place around 3.30 pm.

    Shanthini’s neighbours who attempted to prevent the abduction had rushed to the Chavakachcheri police and made a complaint about the incident.

    Police then alerted the 523 Brigade and got into action immediately along with troops of the Brigade.

    Within a couple of hours, the Security Forces personnel were able to locate the place where Shanthini was hidden by Kuhadhas.

    However, the Security Forces personnel were only able to recover Shanthini’s body which was brutally disfigured and partly buried in the compound of a deserted house near a temple in an isolated place called Kirampuvil in Chavakachcheri.

    It has been found that Kuhadhas had used a bicycle chain to strangle Shanthini’s neck to kill her. Before strangling Shanthini, he had brutally disfigured her face beyond identification.

    The Security Forces personnel and the police who continued with the search operation, later found Shanthini’s son Ruban at a lodge near the Jaffna Government Secretariat. The owners of the lodge who have been taken into custody have told police that Ruban was brought there by his father Kuhadhas.

    Ruban, son of Kuhadhas and Shanthini

    The Security Forces personnel who continued with the search operation later apprehended the suspect, the `white van’ he had hired in Colombo and its driver Raja.

    Apprehended
    The woman suspected to be involved with Kuhadhas has been apprehended by police and is in remand custody.

    Meanwhile, District Judge of Chavakachcheri C. Ganesharaja visited the scene of the crime and ordered the suspects to be remanded till March 18.

    Swift and timely action by the Security Forces have prevented the suspect fleeing from the Peninsula and thrashed the sinister motives of the suspect.

    A senior attorney-at-law and first woman President’s Counsel in Jaffna, Ms. Shantha Abimanyu recently commenting on the present State of the social structure of the Jaffna Peninsula regretted that marriage and divorce rates in the region were now on the increase among young couples.

    “We never heard of this in the past.

    Jaffna was a highly cultured and conservative society.

    The people were very spiritual, academically sound and did not give room to problems and divorce and separation were taboo sjubejcts.

    Apart from the effects of the three decades of conflict in the North, foreign influence and new-rich tendencies have made inroads into the social structure of present day Jaffna,” Shantha Abimanyu said.

    Reports from countries where Lankan Tamil expatriates live also indicate that the divorce rate and domestic violence among families were on the increase.

    Some Civil Society members in the Jaffna peninsula commenting on last week’s horror in Chavakachcheri said that the incident had instilled fear on the social structure of Jaffna society which is likely to be influenced by the fast track lifestyles of these elements with all types of notoriety.

  94. When UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon do something about Sri Lanka War Crimes?

    Sri Lanka Prez Rajapaksa said that there were ZERO civilian deaths in Sri Lanka War yet witnesses say otherwise.

    " Tamils were running and running to get them safe away from the Sri Lanka Army shell bombing, but they couldn't and it came to a point where we thought we are all going to die, there is no way we can be safe anymore

    It was raining and … you could see everywhere on the road the blood is running with the water and the bodies were left there because there was no-one to identify who was dead and who is alive, the bodies were just laid down on the floor

    Thousands of Tamils were picking their way between bodies strewn across the road, desperate to escape the fighting all around them.

    "The mother couldn't bring the dead body and she doesn't want to leave it as well. She was standing … holding the baby. She didn't know what to do … At the end, because of the shell bombing and people rushing – there were thousands and thousands of people, they were rushing in and pushing everyone – she just had to leave the baby at the side of the road, she had to leave the body there and come, she had no choice.

    Tamils had been in despair: a shell had just struck the hospital and 100s were dead.

    As the Sri Lanka army closed in, it got worse.

    A Tamil mother was brought in, injured, clutching her baby.

    "She had the baby on her lap, the baby is dead and the mother didn't know and the doctor said: 'Don't tell her, because if we tell her now she will start crying out and shouting and … we have to save the mother first.' So we said: 'OK, give the baby to us, we'll look after her you go and get the treatment from the doctor,' and only after she got the treatment we told the truth, that your baby is dead. I can easily say it, but at that moment I was in so much pain, the innocent baby, the mother didn't know the baby was dead, she thought 'my baby is sleeping'.

    The bunker right next to ours had a shell on top of it and there were six people in the same family died and three were wounded. I saw blood everywhere and the people – I couldn't even imagine that place, there was blood and then the bodies were into pieces everywhere. A Tamil mother was dead and the baby was still suckling

    Jim’s cluster bomb lie still stands. As comprehension appears not to be your strong point, let me make it really simple for you.

    In Jim’s own words: “…..Do the army commanders in Colombo know for a fact that some lower ranking officers or troops in the north didn’t use the cluster bombs?”

    My note to Jim: Cluster bombs are air-delivered munitions. Low ranking troops can’t just jump into a fighter-bomber with cluster bombs and take on their own targets. :) :) :) The cluster bomb lie was comprehensively refuted by January 2009.

    Jim hasn’t demolished the cluster bomb lie because he can’t.

    p.s. if you know of any way for me to be paid by the SL Govt, drop me an email.

    Uprooted Tamils from Puthukkudiyiruppu still strive for resettlement
    Large number of Tamil families from Mullaiththeevu district of Vanni, forcibly displaced and still held behind barbed wire camps in Menik Farm and other places, are yet to be allowed into their native villages in Puthukkudiyiruppu. The occupying Sri Lankan military has only allowed civilians to enter 6 of 19 Village Officer (GS) divisions in Puthukkudiyiruppu. So far, Only 68,846 persons from 23,050 families have been resettled in 65 out of 92 Village Officer divisions in Mullaiththeevu district. Thirty percent of the civilians are not allowed to resettle in the entire district of Mullaiththeevu, according to the data from the Mullaiththeevu District Secretariat.
    Over 2 years, they still in the concentration camps.

    The United States is increasing pressure on Sri Lanka to investigate the deaths of thousands of civilians at the end of its civil war. Human rights groups contend a Sri Lankan government commission has demonstrated no intent of doing it. The Senate passed a resolution this past week urging an international investigation of war crimes allegations. The State Department has yet to go that far, but said Friday that pressure to do so would grow if Sri Lanka should fail to investigate the abuses properly. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/arti

    Patients killed in cluster bomb attack on Sri Lankan hospital http://www.guardian.co.uk/weather/2009/feb/04/sri

    In the final stages of the war, the Army used cluster bombs and phosphorus bombs against innocent civilians. There were many casualties on account of this. Around 400 600 died daily, and around 1,000 were injured.

  98. The thought that the Sri Lanka state has lost its mind and is punishing so many innocent Tamil people is intolerable!!!!

  99. The war is won . Sri Lanka government assures tourists and investors that the country is as safe as paradise.

    But each month the dead Tiger is carefully resurrected, as Sri Lanka’s draconian Emergency Law comes up for renewal in parliament. In this month’s version of the ‘Undead Tiger,’ Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne announced that the LTTE is secretly operating three training camps in Tamil Nadu! This piece of absurdist political-theatre about an Undead Tiger is critical to the success of the Rajapaksa project; it enables the Ruling Family to nourish a siege-mentality in the Sinhala South and justify the continued existence of the Emergency, in post-war Sri Lanka.

    Despots need a perilous world, a world menaced by known and nameless foes, from within and without. They need frightened populaces, who will consent to subjugation, in return for illusions of stability and security. Thus despots seek to manufacture consent for anti-democratic rule by manufacturing national threats, via ‘bogeyman/gonybilla tactics.’

    Despots feel unsafe with thinking populaces capable of forming informed judgements and making measured decisions. They want their populaces to be numbed (politically, intellectually and morally) with suspicion and dread. Despotic rulers cannot co-exist with independent citizens; they need dependent subjects who accept their worldviews and their interpretations unquestioningly. Like the Wizard of Oz, despotic-rulers need their populaces to wear reality-distorting politico-psychological spectacles. Anyone who resists participating in these exercises of mass self-deception is regarded as an enemy, and dealt with accordingly.

    So Sri Lanka’s Ruling Family needs a spectral Tiger to haunt the collective psyche of the Sinhalese and compel them to consent to anti-democratic laws, autocracy-enabling constitutional amendments and repressive practices. According to the latest Amnesty International report, “Thousands of people are languishing in detention without charge or trial under Sri Lanka’s repressive anti-terrorism laws. Sometimes held in secret prisons, they are vulnerable to a whole range of abuses including torture or being killed in custody” (Forgotten Prisoners).

  100. The LLRC in Sri Lanka… what a joke. :)

    Sri Lankan politicians have become like the late Yassar Arafat of whom it was said he never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

    Basically… the Sri Lanka is run by criminals posing as Sinhalese nationalists.

  103. Ban Ki-moon excels in double standards
    We have always held the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in scant regard. His recent pronouncement on Gaddafi’s crimes against humanity viewed in relation to the massacres of innocent Tamil civilians in Sri Lanka between January and May 2009 smacks of double standards. This is no surprise to us. Nevertheless, we wish to place this instance on record. In our estimation he is the worst and the most despicable Secretary General that the UN has ever had. To say the least, he is ineffective and lacks the slightest modicum of integrity. What is worse is that he is surrounded by unscrupulous persons who can stop in our view to the lowest depths as water seeking its own level. He was brought into office because the former US president George W Bush wanted a person lacking in spine. It is apparent that Moon’s agenda are never on the Table but always under it :)

  104. We Eezham Tamils should stick together

    A section of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) has revolted against V. Rudrakumaran, the self-appointed Prime Minister of the organisation causing chaos among various Diaspora factions.

    The rebel group consists of 34 self-styled MPs based in Australia (3), Canada (6), France (3), Germany (7), Italy (1), Denmark (3), Norway (3), Sweden (1) and UK (7).

    The TGTE comprised 102 ‘MPs’ based in various parts of the world. Since the conclusion of the war in May 2009, the US-based one-time legal advisor to the LTTE, Rudrakumaran had spent millions of dollars on the ‘TGTE project.’ He tried to exploit the arrest and extradition of Selvarasa Pathmanathan aka ‘KP’ to Colombo in Aug. 2009 to promote TGTE as a government in exile.

    The rebel ‘MPs’ of the TGTE had ignored a request by ‘Speaker’ Pon Balraj of the TGTE to reaffirm their commitment to the ‘government in exile’ by Mar. 5, 2011. Sources said that Balraj had requested rebels to get in touch with him via email at Speaker@tgte.org or Pon.balarajan@tgte.org.

    The TGTE’s rebel group has already established a new political wing and aligned itself with Norway-based Perinpanayagam Sivaparan aka Nediyawan, widely believed to be Rudrakumaran’s main challenger. Sources said the split in the TGTE had strengthened Nediyawan’s efforts to oust Rudrakumaran.

  107. Here is a post war Sri Lankan story from the Jaffna peninsula, with all the actors and props – Local Tamils, Abductions, White vans, Security Forces, Diaspora and Staged Disappearance.
    —————————-
    With the end of the three -decade conflict, a large number of Tamils living abroad is arriving daily to see their native places in the Jaffna peninsula.

    Most of the Tamil expatriates are returning to their birthplace to renew their relationship with their kith and kin and to assess the state of their assets which had due to the three- decades of terror that gripped the country.

    Tamil expatriates
    The current influx of Tamil expatriates into the peninsula has created an atmosphere of family reunion and healthy interactions among foreign returnees and their friends and relatives in the region.

    Unlike the other returnees, forty-two-year-old Selvathurai Kuhadhas came to his native home town Chavakachcheri in Jaffna a few weeks ago with an ulterior motive – to get rid of his ex-wife Shanthini who had divorced him in India, three years ago.

    Kuhadhas and Shanthini have a fifteen-year-old son, Ruban who lived with his mother most of the time when his father was in Canada. Shanthini and her son Ruban were in South India until she got her divorce from Kuhadhas.

    An alleged extra marital affair Kuhadhas developed with his brother’s wife’s sister, is believed to have led to the divorce between Kuhadhas and Shanthini.

    Since the break-up of his marriage, Kuhadhas was planning to take the woman whom he was involved with to Canada.

    Returned
    A few weeks ago, Kuhadhas who is said to be a qualified engineer returned to Colombo from Canada with a malicious plan to fulfil his intention of taking the woman whom he was involved with him to Canada and to acquire the assets he and Shanthini owned before their divorce.

    Soon after arrival in Colombo, Kuhadhas got in touch with a person called Raja who is alleged to have links with the underworld.

    Driver of the white van, Raja

    Kuhadhas’s plan to kill his wife was two-pronged. He had worked it out with his new-found allies in Colombo to execute it in such a way in order to get rid of his wife on the one hand and to create an impression on the other, that the killing was committed by the Security Forces, he used the `white van’ ploy to abduct Shanthini.

    To go ahead with his plan Kuhadhas had hired a white coloured van bearing the number 253-3852. He obtained the van in Wellawatte, Colombo.

    With the end of the conflict in the North certain vicious elements spearheaded rumours to discredit the Security Forces saying that `white vans’ were used by them to abduct civilians. However, the Security Forces Command in Jaffna had countered these vicious rumours on several occasions in the past and even apprehended criminals who were involved in criminal activity by creating an adverse impression on the Security Forces personnel in the North. But Kuhadhas who was not aware about the precautionary measures and the alertness of the Security Forces personnel in the North, embarked on his `crafty’ plan by using a `white van’ which he had hired from Colombo.

    On that fateful day on March 6, Sunday he went to his ex-wife Shanthini’s house in Meesalai East in the Chavakachcheri district.

    Kuhadhas got down from the van and dragged Shanthini and their son Ruban forcibly into the van.

    Cries raised
    Despite the cries raised by the neighbourhood, Kuhadhas’s `white van’ whisked the two victims and disappeared from the scene. The incident took place around 3.30 pm.

    Shanthini’s neighbours who attempted to prevent the abduction had rushed to the Chavakachcheri police and made a complaint about the incident.

    Police then alerted the 523 Brigade and got into action immediately along with troops of the Brigade.

    Within a couple of hours, the Security Forces personnel were able to locate the place where Shanthini was hidden by Kuhadhas.

    However, the Security Forces personnel were only able to recover Shanthini’s body which was brutally disfigured and partly buried in the compound of a deserted house near a temple in an isolated place called Kirampuvil in Chavakachcheri.

    It has been found that Kuhadhas had used a bicycle chain to strangle Shanthini’s neck to kill her. Before strangling Shanthini, he had brutally disfigured her face beyond identification.

    The Security Forces personnel and the police who continued with the search operation, later found Shanthini’s son Ruban at a lodge near the Jaffna Government Secretariat. The owners of the lodge who have been taken into custody have told police that Ruban was brought there by his father Kuhadhas.

    Ruban, son of Kuhadhas and Shanthini

    The Security Forces personnel who continued with the search operation later apprehended the suspect, the `white van’ he had hired in Colombo and its driver Raja.

    Apprehended
    The woman suspected to be involved with Kuhadhas has been apprehended by police and is in remand custody.

    Meanwhile, District Judge of Chavakachcheri C. Ganesharaja visited the scene of the crime and ordered the suspects to be remanded till March 18.

    Swift and timely action by the Security Forces have prevented the suspect fleeing from the Peninsula and thrashed the sinister motives of the suspect.

    A senior attorney-at-law and first woman President’s Counsel in Jaffna, Ms. Shantha Abimanyu recently commenting on the present State of the social structure of the Jaffna Peninsula regretted that marriage and divorce rates in the region were now on the increase among young couples.

    “We never heard of this in the past.

    Jaffna was a highly cultured and conservative society.

    The people were very spiritual, academically sound and did not give room to problems and divorce and separation were taboo sjubejcts.

    Apart from the effects of the three decades of conflict in the North, foreign influence and new-rich tendencies have made inroads into the social structure of present day Jaffna,” Shantha Abimanyu said.

    Reports from countries where Lankan Tamil expatriates live also indicate that the divorce rate and domestic violence among families were on the increase.

    Some Civil Society members in the Jaffna peninsula commenting on last week’s horror in Chavakachcheri said that the incident had instilled fear on the social structure of Jaffna society which is likely to be influenced by the fast track lifestyles of these elements with all types of notoriety.

  108. When UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon do something about Sri Lanka War Crimes?

    Sri Lanka Prez Rajapaksa said that there were ZERO civilian deaths in Sri Lanka War yet witnesses say otherwise.

    ” Tamils were running and running to get them safe away from the Sri Lanka Army shell bombing, but they couldn’t and it came to a point where we thought we are all going to die, there is no way we can be safe anymore

    It was raining and … you could see everywhere on the road the blood is running with the water and the bodies were left there because there was no-one to identify who was dead and who is alive, the bodies were just laid down on the floor

    Thousands of Tamils were picking their way between bodies strewn across the road, desperate to escape the fighting all around them.

    “The mother couldn’t bring the dead body and she doesn’t want to leave it as well. She was standing … holding the baby. She didn’t know what to do … At the end, because of the shell bombing and people rushing – there were thousands and thousands of people, they were rushing in and pushing everyone – she just had to leave the baby at the side of the road, she had to leave the body there and come, she had no choice.

    Tamils had been in despair: a shell had just struck the hospital and 100s were dead.

    As the Sri Lanka army closed in, it got worse.

    A Tamil mother was brought in, injured, clutching her baby.

    “She had the baby on her lap, the baby is dead and the mother didn’t know and the doctor said: ‘Don’t tell her, because if we tell her now she will start crying out and shouting and … we have to save the mother first.’ So we said: ‘OK, give the baby to us, we’ll look after her you go and get the treatment from the doctor,’ and only after she got the treatment we told the truth, that your baby is dead. I can easily say it, but at that moment I was in so much pain, the innocent baby, the mother didn’t know the baby was dead, she thought ‘my baby is sleeping’.

    The bunker right next to ours had a shell on top of it and there were six people in the same family died and three were wounded. I saw blood everywhere and the people – I couldn’t even imagine that place, there was blood and then the bodies were into pieces everywhere. A Tamil mother was dead and the baby was still suckling

    Uprooted Tamils from Puthukkudiyiruppu still strive for resettlement
    Large number of Tamil families from Mullaiththeevu district of Vanni, forcibly displaced and still held behind barbed wire camps in Menik Farm and other places, are yet to be allowed into their native villages in Puthukkudiyiruppu. The occupying Sri Lankan military has only allowed civilians to enter 6 of 19 Village Officer (GS) divisions in Puthukkudiyiruppu. So far, Only 68,846 persons from 23,050 families have been resettled in 65 out of 92 Village Officer divisions in Mullaiththeevu district. Thirty percent of the civilians are not allowed to resettle in the entire district of Mullaiththeevu, according to the data from the Mullaiththeevu District Secretariat.
    Over 2 years, they still in the concentration camps.

    The United States is increasing pressure on Sri Lanka to investigate the deaths of thousands of civilians at the end of its civil war.

    Hey there !!

    For once, I tend to agree with your post ! Yes, 10 years is a bit too much to detain a person without any kind of action being taken. Indeed the GOSL should look in to it immediately.

    Also Jim MD, I have a small issue with the blog as a whole… I thought that you block or delete the posts that are not in line with the topic and enforce this law of yours to the fullest authority as I have experienced my self before. If so, I have a massive question on how you allow the mentally sick terrorists to make totally out of context posts on this blog ????

    Do I see some kind of mishap in enforcing the law from your side???? If you don't enforce the simple laws of this blog, you telling the GOSL to enforce law is like throwing stones at other whilst living in a glass house noh ???

    Can we see the great Amnesty laws enforced on this simple site ASAP please ??

  114. In Sri Lanka mentally disabled Tamil was tortured in custody

    Alagumail Mohan (25) who was diagnosed as being mentally rdisabled was tortured whilst under treatment.

    Mohan was illegally arrested and severely tortured by police officers attached to the Thalawakele Police Station on 15 February 2011.

    On 15 February 2011 Mohan went to a shop situated in close proximity to the Thalawakele Tea Factory belonging to Mr. Ranaweera and asked for a bottle of Fanta (a soft drink). The shop owner gave him a bottle which Mohan drank before returning it to the shop owner. He remained at the shop talking with the owner and other customers. He then left the shop forgetting to pay the price for the drink.

    Police had received a telephone call from Mr. Ranaweera that Mohan had not paid the price for the Fanta drink he bought. Mohan was brought inside the police station he was produced before Sub Inspector (SI) Gunarathna

    Sub Inspector (SI) Gunarathna beat Mohan with punches and kicks and struck him about the head.
    Then he grabbed Mohan's left wrist which he twisted, wrenched . Mohan was not able to bare the pain and started screaming loudly.

    Ambulance took Mohan, who was in severe pain, to Nuwara Eliya Base Hospital. Due to the seriousness of his condition the doctors at that hospital transferred Mohan to the Teaching Hospital of Peradeniya.

    Mohan was admitted to the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital and underwent an X-ray examination and the doctors informed the relatives that there was an oblique fracture (please see X-ray above) due to the tortured he suffered. Mohan had to undergo surgery to treat the fracture and a plate and pins were inserted. Mohan was instructed to attend the orthopedic clinic of the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital for further treatment.

    There is no doubt in the minds of Mohan's relatives that he simply forgot to pay for the drink due to his mental illness and that if reminded, he would have paid for it before leaving the shop. They also believe that there was no malice or mischief intended. They state that the police tortured and broke Mohan's hand.

    Mohan and his relatives state that SI Gunarathna and the officers of Thalawakele Police violated Mohan's rights. Despite his obvious mental disability (which is widely known and understood in the area) the police showed no respect or understanding. He was humiliated and tortured in the cruelest manner for what was, in fact, a minor matter that could have been easily resolved. Due to this injury Mohan has to take treatment for a few more months. They also believe that the State of Sri Lanka should be responsible for violation of Mohan's rights.

    The mother of the victim narrated the story in the video.

    Ambulance took Mohan, who was in severe pain, to Nuwara Eliya Base Hospital. Due to the seriousness of his condition the doctors at that hospital transferred Mohan to the Teaching Hospital of Peradeniya.

    Mohan was admitted to the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital and underwent an X-ray examination and the doctors informed the relatives that there was an oblique fracture (please see X-ray above) due to the tortured he suffered. Mohan had to undergo surgery to treat the fracture and a plate and pins were inserted. Mohan was instructed to attend the orthopedic clinic of the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital for further treatment.

    There is no doubt in the minds of Mohan's relatives that he simply forgot to pay for the drink due to his mental illness and that if reminded, he would have paid for it before leaving the shop. They also believe that there was no malice or mischief intended. They state that the police tortured and broke Mohan's hand.

    Mohan and his relatives state that SI Gunarathna and the officers of Thalawakele Police violated Mohan's rights. Despite his obvious mental disability (which is widely known and understood in the area) the police showed no respect or understanding. He was humiliated and tortured in the cruelest manner for what was, in fact, a minor matter that could have been easily resolved. Due to this injury Mohan has to take treatment for a few more months. They also believe that the State of Sri Lanka should be responsible for violation of Mohan's rights.

    The mother of the victim narrated the story in the video.

  117. President Mahinda Rajapaksa is another Sinhala racist leader who will cheat the Tamils.

    •President Mahinda is another Sinhala racist leader who will cheat the Tamils and he will never implement the promised 13+ package.
    •Finding a resolution to the over six decades old burgeoning Tamil conflict for proper devolved political accommodation has seen many failed talks between the Sinhala Government and Tamils.
    •All the talks between the Sinhala Government and the Tamil parties in the past did not produce any results.
    •When a clear agenda and time scale is not set, the negotiation process itself becomes cause for the failure and this is what the objective of President Mahinda.
    •Talks are taking place without the engagement of an independent and experienced middle man that is historically anathema for the government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) and very little can be expected from this talk

  118. Sri Lanka President Rajapaksa approve assassination assassination

    Attempted assassination of opposition politician in Sri Lanka is another illustration of the exceptional collapse of the rule of law in the country.

    Tamil Parliamentarian ,Sivagnanam Sritharan traveled in a vehicle on a Sri Lanka highway.

    The unnumbered “white van” was parked by the roadside. Two men in denim trousers and white tee- shirts were standing by the vehicle.

    As the van proceeded the two men in white drew out pistols and began firing at the front of the vehicle.

    Two shots pierced the windscreen. Alarmed but alert, the driver began to accelerate.

    The would be assassins were now seen with a hand grenade each. As the vehicle drew near one of the men pulled the clip and tossed it in front.

    The other tried to roll the grenade under the van. Thereafter they drew back and continued to fire at the van.

    Sri Lanka Police response to the assassination attempt was rather lethargic

  122. The Eelam Idiots' Guide to Cluster Bombs (e.g. noor)

    From AI's own press release in Feb 09:

    "The United Nations has issued a statement clarifying that the munitions used against the hospital in the town of Puthukkudiyiruppu this week were not cluster bombs."

    There are two characteristic features that should be always present in areas where a Russian Cluster bomb has been used:

    - Unexploded Sub-Munitions.
    - Dispenser Casing with markings identifying type and payload.

    —— The Alleged Evidence Pertaining to the Use of Cluster Bombs ——
    There has been no evidence presented to indicate the presence of any un-exploded sub-munitions in areas allegedly attacked using Cluster Bombs.

    Given the statistical dud rates of Cluster Bomb sub-munitions, the very reason this class of weapon is considered extremely dangerous, the lack of any sub-munitions in the affected areas is a notable anomaly.

    The bomb casings exhibited [by the LTTE] as belonging to Russian Cluster Bombs belong to a different class of Russian munition.This range of bombs are called `Low Drag Blast Fragmentation` weapons. `OFAB` in Russian stands for `Oskolochno-Fugasnaya`, `Fragmentation/HE`.

    The SLAF does not possess and therefore could not and did not use cluster bombs.

  123. Sri Lanka Army burned Jaffna Library

    EYE WITNESS ACCOUNT FROM A RETIRED POLICE OFFICER Mr Krishnadasan

    At about 7.00 – 7.30pm, from the Police Station we noticed heavy smokes emerging from the Library building. I then promptly rushed with a police comprising of 2 Sub Inspectors and about 10 Constables.

    We rushed on foot as the Library is only about 250 yards away from the station.

    As we approached a few yards from the Library building, I noticed about 30 Sri Lanka Army personnel in uniform inside the building.

    They were pulling down the books from the shelves and setting them on fire.

    On seeing the police party, one army officer came out followed by few other army personnel pointing their AK47 rifles towards us and shouted in a rough tone in sinhala that everything is under control and ordered us to get back to the police station.

    I then immediately contacted superior and advised him of the situation.

    The superior policeman then reluctantly advised us to get back to station.

    From the police station we noticed the whole Library building being set on fire.

    The superior tried his best to contact the Sri Lanka army top brass who were in Jaffna to inform them of the situation, but to no avail.

    If the police party had taken any action against the army personnel, I would be killed and won’t be alive today to narrate this story!

    It was a tragic scene I had to witness haplessly.

  130. Sri Lanka News Paper lies about Harvard University meeting !!!

    Sri Lanka news paper posted screaming headlines

    ‘LTTE threat to disrupt Harvard discussion'

    But shocked Harvard University asked for a retraction, as the newspaper carried a “severely distorted,” news article regards a panel discussion that had taken place at the School. http://groundviews.org/2011/03/14/harvard-univers

    A Sri Lankan newspaper, The Nation last Sunday in a front page story titled ‘LTTE threat to disrupt Harvard discussion on Lanka turns into damp squib’ carried an article detailing a panel discussion attended by Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN Palitha Kohona, and said a journalist who had been convicted for 20 years in Sri Lanka and is now a Nieman Fellow had attempted to block the event.

    Despite The Nation not naming the journalist, the only journalist in Sri Lanka who was sentenced to 20 years in jail and is now a Nieman Fellow at Harvard is Mr. J.S Tissainayagam.

    Ambassador Burns in his statement said, “Your claim that J.S. Tissainayagam, a Sri Lankan journalist and Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, organized a mass protest of the event is simply untrue. Mr. Tissainayagam attended and participated in the event, contributing greatly to the audiences understanding of the end of the war and challenges ahead for Sri Lanka.”

    Ambassador Burns refuted this in his statement saying the LTTE had no role in this event and that the audience was composed of students and fellows from the Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

  131. Sri Lanka Government lie …. lie…. and tells more lie …..

    Shameless Sri Lanka Prez Rajapaksa :( said that there were ZERO civilian deaths in the war

    Hey there !!

    For once, I tend to agree with your post ! Yes, 10 years is a bit too much to detain a person without any kind of action being taken. Indeed the GOSL should look in to it immediately.

    Also Jim MD, I have a small issue with the blog as a whole… I thought that you block or delete the posts that are not in line with the topic and enforce this law of yours to the fullest authority as I have experienced my self before. If so, I have a massive question on how you allow the mentally sick terrorists to make totally out of context posts on this blog ????

    Do I see some kind of mishap in enforcing the law from your side???? If you don’t enforce the simple laws of this blog, you telling the GOSL to enforce law is like throwing stones at other whilst living in a glass house noh ???

    Can we see the great Amnesty laws enforced on this simple site ASAP please ??

    You are not talking in terms of winning the hearts and mind of the Tamil people.

    It seems you people do not want to do that.

    You want to send away the Tamils away from the island nation or better still kill them.

    This seems to be your mentality. I condemn this mentality. That island belongs to Tamils even as it belongs to you,

    Yours words do cause heartburn to many people.

    You do not have any right to dislodge them from their traditional place of habitation.

    That is genocide.

  150. Assassination attempt on Tamil politician, Sivagnanam Sritharan in Sri Lanka

    I believe that this should be a warning for the MP. This guy also started acting as a hero for Tamil cause of late, following the foot-steps of Amir, Yoges and the like, who in the end fell victims of the killing machines.

  151. Sritharan MP was outspoken champion of Tamil rights.That is why Sri Lanka govt goondas targeted him. Mahinda and Gotha must bear responsibility

  152. Rip Van Winkle

    Yet again … you are not an eloquent writer and you are miserably failed here

    You sadly missed the point altogether.

    The caravan shall keep on moving and Tamils will get their Justice ….

  153. Prime Minister DM Jayaratne for making the statement in Sri Lanka Parliament was an absurdist political-theatre and outright lie about India..

    Despite Jayaratne’s subsequent withdrawal, the damage had been done, particularly to the mutual trust between the two nations that was missing in between but was carefully re-built, brick by brick, in recent years.

    It is a serious lapse of responsibility, considering the fragile nature of bilateral relations with an immediate neighbour, which has serious consequences for both in more ways than one. If the Prime Minister and the Government of Sri Lanka are serious about the rebuttal since, the record could be set right, if at all, only if it is stated in Parliament.

    Such instances takes away the seriousness of governance from the Government, and thus challenges the credibility, though not the legitimacy, of the institutions that such individuals have come to represent in the Sri Lankan State scheme. To comment in haste and rebut at leisure is not what diplomacy is about. Instead, it is about weighing the words and presenting it with care.

  154. In Sri Lanka mentally disabled Tamil was tortured in custody

    Alagumail Mohan (25) who was diagnosed as being mentally rdisabled was tortured whilst under treatment.

    Mohan was illegally arrested and severely tortured by police officers attached to the Thalawakele Police Station on 15 February 2011.

    On 15 February 2011 Mohan went to a shop situated in close proximity to the Thalawakele Tea Factory belonging to Mr. Ranaweera and asked for a bottle of Fanta (a soft drink). The shop owner gave him a bottle which Mohan drank before returning it to the shop owner. He remained at the shop talking with the owner and other customers. He then left the shop forgetting to pay the price for the drink.

    Police had received a telephone call from Mr. Ranaweera that Mohan had not paid the price for the Fanta drink he bought. Mohan was brought inside the police station he was produced before Sub Inspector (SI) Gunarathna

    Sub Inspector (SI) Gunarathna beat Mohan with punches and kicks and struck him about the head.
    Then he grabbed Mohan’s left wrist which he twisted, wrenched . Mohan was not able to bare the pain and started screaming loudly.

    Ambulance took Mohan, who was in severe pain, to Nuwara Eliya Base Hospital. Due to the seriousness of his condition the doctors at that hospital transferred Mohan to the Teaching Hospital of Peradeniya.

    Mohan was admitted to the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital and underwent an X-ray examination and the doctors informed the relatives that there was an oblique fracture (please see X-ray above) due to the tortured he suffered. Mohan had to undergo surgery to treat the fracture and a plate and pins were inserted. Mohan was instructed to attend the orthopedic clinic of the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital for further treatment.

    There is no doubt in the minds of Mohan’s relatives that he simply forgot to pay for the drink due to his mental illness and that if reminded, he would have paid for it before leaving the shop. They also believe that there was no malice or mischief intended. They state that the police tortured and broke Mohan’s hand.

    Mohan and his relatives state that SI Gunarathna and the officers of Thalawakele Police violated Mohan’s rights. Despite his obvious mental disability (which is widely known and understood in the area) the police showed no respect or understanding. He was humiliated and tortured in the cruelest manner for what was, in fact, a minor matter that could have been easily resolved. Due to this injury Mohan has to take treatment for a few more months. They also believe that the State of Sri Lanka should be responsible for violation of Mohan’s rights.

    Remember, he promised you all a rose garden and an independent 'homeland'. He took your lives, limbs, money, your children (except the Diaspora's children who were too busy going to school) and your property. He lied. He couldn't deliver.

    Fatty VP also stated publicly "If I don't deliver Eelam, kill me." The SL govt delivered on that request. So, in fact you should be thanking MR & Co for ensuring that Fatty Prabha was made to deliver on his promise.

  157. Sri Lanka President Rajapaksa approve assassination assassination

    Attempted assassination of opposition politician in Sri Lanka is another illustration of the exceptional collapse of the rule of law in the country.

    Tamil Parliamentarian ,Sivagnanam Sritharan traveled in a vehicle on a Sri Lanka highway.

    The unnumbered “white van” was parked by the roadside. Two men in denim trousers and white tee- shirts were standing by the vehicle.

    As the van proceeded the two men in white drew out pistols and began firing at the front of the vehicle.

    Two shots pierced the windscreen. Alarmed but alert, the driver began to accelerate.

    The would be assassins were now seen with a hand grenade each. As the vehicle drew near one of the men pulled the clip and tossed it in front.

    The other tried to roll the grenade under the van. Thereafter they drew back and continued to fire at the van.

    Sri Lanka Police response to the assassination attempt was rather lethargic

  160. Sri Lanka Army burned Jaffna Library

    EYE WITNESS ACCOUNT FROM A RETIRED POLICE OFFICER Mr Krishnadasan

    At about 7.00 – 7.30pm, from the Police Station we noticed heavy smokes emerging from the Library building. I then promptly rushed with a police comprising of 2 Sub Inspectors and about 10 Constables.

    We rushed on foot as the Library is only about 250 yards away from the station.

    As we approached a few yards from the Library building, I noticed about 30 Sri Lanka Army personnel in uniform inside the building.

    They were pulling down the books from the shelves and setting them on fire.

    On seeing the police party, one army officer came out followed by few other army personnel pointing their AK47 rifles towards us and shouted in a rough tone in sinhala that everything is under control and ordered us to get back to the police station.

    I then immediately contacted superior and advised him of the situation.

    The superior policeman then reluctantly advised us to get back to station.

    From the police station we noticed the whole Library building being set on fire.

    The superior tried his best to contact the Sri Lanka army top brass who were in Jaffna to inform them of the situation, but to no avail.

    If the police party had taken any action against the army personnel, I would be killed and won’t be alive today to narrate this story!

    It was a tragic scene I had to witness haplessly.

  166. The Eelam Idiots’ Guide to Cluster Bombs (e.g. noor)

    From AI’s own press release in Feb 09:

    “The United Nations has issued a statement clarifying that the munitions used against the hospital in the town of Puthukkudiyiruppu this week were not cluster bombs.”

    There are two characteristic features that should be always present in areas where a Russian Cluster bomb has been used:

    - Unexploded Sub-Munitions.
    - Dispenser Casing with markings identifying type and payload.

    —— The Alleged Evidence Pertaining to the Use of Cluster Bombs ——
    There has been no evidence presented to indicate the presence of any un-exploded sub-munitions in areas allegedly attacked using Cluster Bombs.

    Given the statistical dud rates of Cluster Bomb sub-munitions, the very reason this class of weapon is considered extremely dangerous, the lack of any sub-munitions in the affected areas is a notable anomaly.

    The bomb casings exhibited [by the LTTE] as belonging to Russian Cluster Bombs belong to a different class of Russian munition.This range of bombs are called `Low Drag Blast Fragmentation` weapons. `OFAB` in Russian stands for `Oskolochno-Fugasnaya`, `Fragmentation/HE`.

    The SLAF does not possess and therefore could not and did not use cluster bombs.

  170. Sri Lanka News Paper lies about Harvard University meeting !!!

    Sri Lanka news paper posted screaming headlines

    ‘LTTE threat to disrupt Harvard discussion’

    But shocked Harvard University asked for a retraction, as the newspaper carried a “severely distorted,” news article regards a panel discussion that had taken place at the School.
    http://groundviews.org/2011/03/14/harvard-university-rubbishes-sri-lanka-newspaper%e2%80%99s-allegations/

    A Sri Lankan newspaper, The Nation last Sunday in a front page story titled ‘LTTE threat to disrupt Harvard discussion on Lanka turns into damp squib’ carried an article detailing a panel discussion attended by Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN Palitha Kohona, and said a journalist who had been convicted for 20 years in Sri Lanka and is now a Nieman Fellow had attempted to block the event.

    Despite The Nation not naming the journalist, the only journalist in Sri Lanka who was sentenced to 20 years in jail and is now a Nieman Fellow at Harvard is Mr. J.S Tissainayagam.

    Ambassador Burns in his statement said, “Your claim that J.S. Tissainayagam, a Sri Lankan journalist and Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, organized a mass protest of the event is simply untrue. Mr. Tissainayagam attended and participated in the event, contributing greatly to the audiences understanding of the end of the war and challenges ahead for Sri Lanka.”

    Ambassador Burns refuted this in his statement saying the LTTE had no role in this event and that the audience was composed of students and fellows from the Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

    This seems to be your mentality. I condemn this mentality. That island belongs to Tamils even as it belongs to you,

    Rajapaksa 's genocidal war brought nothing to the Sinhalese people except misery, hunger and foreign domination ( International Monetary Fund (IMF)/World Bank (WB)/World Trade Organization (WTO)
    Global powers including India are pressing the Rajapaksa government to clean up the marks of inhuman acts perpetrated during the war. It has been reported that several European Union nations are poised to pass resolutions against Sri Lanka, similar to those passed by the United States Senate sometime back, applying pressure on the country to conduct an independent probe into allegations of war crimes. Some have warned that these resolutions may be directed at imposing economic sanctions. If Sri Lanka does not solve the Tamil national problem , then it is giving space for alien powers to intervene. Even today it is not too late to think of a solution for the Tamil people.

  189. Sritharan MP was outspoken champion of Tamil rights.That is why Sri Lanka govt goondas targeted him. Mahinda and Gotha must bear responsibility

  190. Forcible registration of Tamils continues

    TNA Parliamentarians brought to the cognizance of the Supreme Court that the forcible registration of Tamil residents in the North by the Sri Lanka Armed Forces is continuing despite the undertaking given to the Court by the Attorney General, to suspend it immediately.

    Attorney General had, on March 3, given an undertaking to the Supreme Court to suspend immediately the forcible registration of residents of Jaffna and Kilinochchi districts by the Security Forces and the Grama Niladharis(Village Officers).

    Deputy Solicitor General Buwaneka Aluvihare appearing for the Attorney General had given this undertaking, sequent to the rights violation petition filed by TNA Parliamentarians.

    Upon the undertaking given by the Attorney General, the Petitioners had withdrawn their petition and the proceedings were terminated.

    Jaffna district Parliamentarians Mavai Senathirajah, Suresh Premachandran, Appathurai Vinayagamoorthy and Eswarapatham Saravanapavan as well as the Kilinochchi district Parliamentarian Sivagnanam Shritharan had filed petition seeking the termination of the impugned forcible registration.

    They had cited Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, Jaffna Security Forces Commander Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, Army Spokesman Udaya Madawala, Jaffna Government Agent Ms Imelda Sukumar and the Attorney General as Respondents.

    Aggrieved by dishonoring of the said undertaking by the State, they filed the motion today through their Attorney-at-Law Moahan Balendra to revive their said application to enable the taking of appropriate steps in terms of the law and to mention this matter on one of the dates: 15th or 16th or 17th of March.

    In the motion, they state they withdrew the said application on the strength of and in the light of the solemn undertaking given to Court.

    They further state it has been brought to the notice of the Parliamentarian Sivagnanam Shritharan who is one of the petitioners that registration by the military is continuing in some areas in the Kilinochchi district.

    They lament that the registration is conducted by collecting information of people through forms being handed out for filling and photographs being taken of those people and that these registrations have taken in Kandawalai on and around March 7 and in Pooneryn on March 12 and 13.

    They alleged the continuance of the questionable registrations contravene the undertaking given by the State and is, in the circumstances, an act of Contempt of Court.

    Petitioners who are TNA Parliamentarians elected to the Parliament from the list of Ilankai Thamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK) known as Federal Party.

    They had, in their fundamental rights petition, sought immediate termination of alleged forced registration and the practice of photographing and obtaining Rs 100 from residents in Jaffna and Kilinochchi, particularly the residents of Kilinochchi district were allegedly forced to sign forms printed and written in Sinhala.

    They had complained that the stigmatization through the singling out the residents of Jaffna and Kilinochchi districts from citizens of the entire country amounts to degrading treatment, especially when such singling out results in treatment resembling the treatment of common criminals and thus amounts to a violation of the right to freedom from degrading treatment under the Constitution.

    They had alleged that the ex facie illegal and ultra vires action and inaction of the Respondents in failing to ensure equality before the law and the equal protection of the law to those individuals illegally required to register in a manner violative of their fundamental rights has violated and jeopardized the fundamental rights guaranteed to such individuals under the Constitution.

    They had also alleged that the policy of requiring only a certain ethnic group from particular geographic area to register is based purely on the race and place of origin of such individuals and amounts to a violation of the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution which specifically provides that no citizen shall be discriminated against on the grounds of race, religion, language, caste, sex, political opinion, place of birth or any such grounds.

    They had bemoaned this form of registration was causing fear and panic within the people of Jaffna and Kilinochchi, criminalizing the entire people of the region and that it was discriminatory whereas these types of measures were not undertaken in the Southern region and in other parts of the country.

    They persisted these measures are counterproductive to the goal of achieving reconciliation in the country.

    They had claimed the purported and allegedly illegal exercise of policing functions by the military is evidence of a growing militarization in the governance of civilian affairs in the Northern and Eastern Provinces at large.

    They complained the alleged arrogation of these powers by the Sri Lanka military constitutes a complete subversion of the rule of law and is emblematic of extra-legal military rule in those areas.

  192. Prime Minister DM Jayaratne for making the statement in Sri Lanka Parliament was an absurdist political-theatre and outright lie about India..

    Despite Jayaratne’s subsequent withdrawal, the damage had been done, particularly to the mutual trust between the two nations that was missing in between but was carefully re-built, brick by brick, in recent years.

    It is a serious lapse of responsibility, considering the fragile nature of bilateral relations with an immediate neighbour, which has serious consequences for both in more ways than one. If the Prime Minister and the Government of Sri Lanka are serious about the rebuttal since, the record could be set right, if at all, only if it is stated in Parliament.

    Such instances takes away the seriousness of governance from the Government, and thus challenges the credibility, though not the legitimacy, of the institutions that such individuals have come to represent in the Sri Lankan State scheme. To comment in haste and rebut at leisure is not what diplomacy is about. Instead, it is about weighing the words and presenting it with care.

  199. International legal systems have so far failed to bring the Sri Lankan War Criminals to justice.

    Fifty thousand innocent men, women and children were brutally murdered on the sandy beaches and in the jungles of Sri Lanka, by the Sri Lankan Military while the whole world stood back and watched.

    Sri Lanka is a graveyard for journalists. Sri Lankan Government is using underground Mafia and death squads to abduct, torture and kill journalists, aid workers and any individuals who are critical of the government. Doctors and journalists are locked up in prisons but the evil ones are rewarded and let to roam around the streets with knives and guns.

    In Sri Lanka, People disappear from their homes, schools, work places and hospitals like flies. It is not the fulfilment of rapture that is taking place according to the book of Revelation in the Bible. But the Sri Lankan regime has mastered the art of using white vans to abduct and kill anyone who is dare to question the conducts of the government.

    Although, Sri Lanka is a democratic country, the majority Sinhala people support Nazi Style right wing parties. Racist politicians and military leaders are looked upon as heroes and saviours of the country. Tamils who once had their own nation are now considered as aliens and invaders even though the majority of the Tamils are the original inhabitants of this land. Politics is driven by the powers of ignorance, greed, lies and deceptions.

    Tamils were slaughtered in thousands with swords and knives in the buses, trains and in their own homes in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. Frustrated Tamil youth took arms to fight against fascism. Armed rebellion has now been crushed with the help of China and India.

    Sri Lankan army did manage to slaughter more than fifty thousand Tamil civilians including women and children within few months time. Banned weapons like cluster bombs and phosphorous bombs were used against the innocents.

    Thousands of surrendered and wounded rebels were brutally murdered. Military tanks rolled over the dying and the golden beaches of Sri Lanka were turned into red carpets with the blood of the innocents.

    Number of people massacred on the beaches of Sri Lanka is almost ten times of the people died in the Tiananmen Square massacre in China.

    Sri Lankan Tragedy is also about an unfair world that is letting the murderers and rapists to walk on red carpets but ignoring the plight of the innocents that are languishing in torture camps and prisons.

    Those who are responsible for the misery in Sri Lanka for years have been successful in hiding the root cause of the problem in order to continue with their own agendas.

    Story of Sri Lanka in the last sixty five years is simply the repetitions of hundreds and thousands of similar horrific events at different scales. 99% of the perpetrators were either Sri Lankan military or extremist Sinhala mobs and 99% of the victims were innocent Tamils.

    Sri Lankan government claims that it has brought an end to the conflict. But the Tamils in Sri Lanka haven't yet found the freedom that they have been longing for years. They are still like Jews that were in the hands of Hitler and Bosnian Muslims who were persecuted by Serbian extremists.

    More than eleven thousands youth that were arrested by the Sri Lankan authorities have still not been released. Even the Red Cross are not allowed to see all the detainees. Many families still haven't found out where their sons and daughters are. Thousands of families have lost their entire livelihood but they are not provided with any help to re-establish their lives. Abductions and killings of Tamils are still continuing.

    Many Tamils are risking their lives by fleeing the country on damaged boats and ships. Sri Lankan rulers are not only persecuting the Tamils in Sri Lanka but also making the lives miserable for those who are fleeing to other countries.

    Agents of Sri Lanka, some of them who work as pseudo terror experts and journalists in other countries are demonising the Tamils who are struggling for their survival even in the seas. These fake experts continue to deceive the international community by identifying every Tamil child, mother and father as terrorists.

    Sri Lankan government regularly appoint individuals with doctorates and other higher degrees as cabinet ministers and propaganda activists to lobby in the UN and in foreign countries. Many of them speak in fluent English and having citizenships in other western countries and their main role is to justify the atrocities that are committed by the Sri Lankan government. These individuals are experts in blaming the victims and protecting the criminals.

    Sri Lankan government also has their own pseudo terror experts working in foreign soils and their main role is to defend the Sri Lankan government and to identify anyone that opposes the Sri Lankan government as terrorist. Sri Lanka spends millions on propaganda and to pay for consultants and propaganda firms that are working round the clock to hide or justify the atrocities committed by the rulers of Sri Lanka.

    In the last sixty five years more than three hundred thousands Tamils died in Sri Lanka. They were killed by bombs, guns, swords and knives. Many Tamils went through physical abuse, torture, isolation and rape in the hands of the Sinhala soldiers before their death. Thousands of Tamil women were raped. More than fifty thousands were maimed. Many thousands have become orphans and windows. More than a million had to flee the country in order to save the lives.

    "….. militaries around the world is that they celebrate a [ Sri Lanka ] military policy that involves killing so many civilians,” said HRW Executive Director Brad Adams

    HRW calls for boycott of Colombo Defence Seminar

    Human Rights Watch (HRW), a New York-based rights organization, called on countries worldwide to boycott a conference to be held in Colombo between 31 May to 02 June labelled

    HRW says many of the tactics employed by the Sri Lankan military in its war against the Tamil Tigers were 'illegal.' “If militaries around the world are going to meet they should be talking about those illegal activities and not trying to copy the Sri Lankan government’s doctrine,” BBC said quoting Mr Adams.

    The HRW accused the Sri Lankan government of repeatedly “lying” of political reforms to settle the national question.

    The HRW also pointed out that the timing of the conference falling on the second anniversary since the government defeated the LTTE sends a "terrible message" to the Tamil community.

  202. Cold war between Rajapakse regime and India

    Because of the boorish and false utterances in the Parliament and infantile behavior of Sri Lanka’s (SL) Prime Minister (PM) who is incidentally the most responsible and most senior Minister of the Govt. and his subsequently retracting those statements admitting that they were false

    , SL ‘s image has been dented before the world, not to mention that the cold war simmering between India and Rajapakse regime has also come to the open. It has also been alleged that these irresponsible and rash statements is the result of the PM being used as a puppet by the Rajapakse regime in its conspiratorial designs.

  203. Sri Lanka opposition to bring a no-confidence motion against Rajapaksa Government Minister

    Sri Lanka’s major opposition United National Party (UNP) sources say that the party will bring a no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne. The UNP no confidence motion against the Prime Minister is based on a statement made by the PM at the parliament during the emergency debate.

    The Premier stated that there are three training camps of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) operating in India’s Tamil Nadu state. The Prime Minister later recanted his claim saying that he made the statement based on the false information in Indian media reports.

  204. @ Sivaraja: All very tragic. Thousands of Tamil civilians died because they were used as shrapnel sponges/hostages by the LTTE in a vain bid to halt the SLA offensive. We both know the truth, so there’s no need to pretend, no?

    If you’d wanted to save lives (and not just Tamil lives), you should’ve stopped Fatty VP from launching his ‘Final War’ in 2006. It’s a bit late to start crying after losing the war so fervently supported and bolstered by pro-LTTE people.

  205. International legal systems have so far failed to bring the Sri Lankan War Criminals to justice.

    Fifty thousand innocent men, women and children were brutally murdered on the sandy beaches and in the jungles of Sri Lanka, by the Sri Lankan Military while the whole world stood back and watched.

    Sri Lanka is a graveyard for journalists. Sri Lankan Government is using underground Mafia and death squads to abduct, torture and kill journalists, aid workers and any individuals who are critical of the government. Doctors and journalists are locked up in prisons but the evil ones are rewarded and let to roam around the streets with knives and guns.

    In Sri Lanka, People disappear from their homes, schools, work places and hospitals like flies. It is not the fulfilment of rapture that is taking place according to the book of Revelation in the Bible. But the Sri Lankan regime has mastered the art of using white vans to abduct and kill anyone who is dare to question the conducts of the government.

    Although, Sri Lanka is a democratic country, the majority Sinhala people support Nazi Style right wing parties. Racist politicians and military leaders are looked upon as heroes and saviours of the country. Tamils who once had their own nation are now considered as aliens and invaders even though the majority of the Tamils are the original inhabitants of this land. Politics is driven by the powers of ignorance, greed, lies and deceptions.

    Tamils were slaughtered in thousands with swords and knives in the buses, trains and in their own homes in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. Frustrated Tamil youth took arms to fight against fascism. Armed rebellion has now been crushed with the help of China and India.

    Sri Lankan army did manage to slaughter more than fifty thousand Tamil civilians including women and children within few months time. Banned weapons like cluster bombs and phosphorous bombs were used against the innocents.

    Thousands of surrendered and wounded rebels were brutally murdered. Military tanks rolled over the dying and the golden beaches of Sri Lanka were turned into red carpets with the blood of the innocents.

    Number of people massacred on the beaches of Sri Lanka is almost ten times of the people died in the Tiananmen Square massacre in China.

    Sri Lankan Tragedy is also about an unfair world that is letting the murderers and rapists to walk on red carpets but ignoring the plight of the innocents that are languishing in torture camps and prisons.

    Those who are responsible for the misery in Sri Lanka for years have been successful in hiding the root cause of the problem in order to continue with their own agendas.

    Story of Sri Lanka in the last sixty five years is simply the repetitions of hundreds and thousands of similar horrific events at different scales. 99% of the perpetrators were either Sri Lankan military or extremist Sinhala mobs and 99% of the victims were innocent Tamils.

    Sri Lankan government claims that it has brought an end to the conflict. But the Tamils in Sri Lanka haven't yet found the freedom that they have been longing for years. They are still like Jews that were in the hands of Hitler and Bosnian Muslims who were persecuted by Serbian extremists.

    More than eleven thousands youth that were arrested by the Sri Lankan authorities have still not been released. Even the Red Cross are not allowed to see all the detainees. Many families still haven't found out where their sons and daughters are. Thousands of families have lost their entire livelihood but they are not provided with any help to re-establish their lives. Abductions and killings of Tamils are still continuing.

    Many Tamils are risking their lives by fleeing the country on damaged boats and ships. Sri Lankan rulers are not only persecuting the Tamils in Sri Lanka but also making the lives miserable for those who are fleeing to other countries.

    Agents of Sri Lanka, some of them who work as pseudo terror experts and journalists in other countries are demonising the Tamils who are struggling for their survival even in the seas. These fake experts continue to deceive the international community by identifying every Tamil child, mother and father as terrorists.

    Sri Lankan government regularly appoint individuals with doctorates and other higher degrees as cabinet ministers and propaganda activists to lobby in the UN and in foreign countries. Many of them speak in fluent English and having citizenships in other western countries and their main role is to justify the atrocities that are committed by the Sri Lankan government. These individuals are experts in blaming the victims and protecting the criminals.

    Sri Lankan government also has their own pseudo terror experts working in foreign soils and their main role is to defend the Sri Lankan government and to identify anyone that opposes the Sri Lankan government as terrorist. Sri Lanka spends millions on propaganda and to pay for consultants and propaganda firms that are working round the clock to hide or justify the atrocities committed by the rulers of Sri Lanka.

  207. I wish to show my appreciation to the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE). In these difficult days they are proving to be masters of subtle satire and unintentional comedy. In the fictional dreamworld created by the TGTE, they’ve started to disintegrate and divide into competing factions.

    They are having imaginary fractures in an imaginary government. The TGTE even has a few attractive female ‘ministers’ — just like the real SL govt. The TGTE mirrors exactly the political culture in Sri Lanka and proves beyond any doubt that are Sri Lankans and not Eezham/Eelam citizens.

    Rajapaksa started this war. When he came to power there was cease fire.
    Rajapaksa is a pathological Liar. He promised the Tamil Freedom Fighters a political solutio, if they supported his bid for Presidency. Of course, as always ,Rajapaksa lied. So , when he became President of Sri Lanka, he broke his promises and killed the Freedom Fighters. Rajapaksa is consumed by insatiable greed. He wants all the land , all the money , all the power…
    This in the end will be his downfall !!!!!

  209. @Sivaraja:
    Arrogant? No, just relieved that the LTTE is finished. Relieved that no more bus bombs in the South and no more stray artillery shells in the North. Why an apology only to Tamil war victims? All of Sri Lanka's war victims, regardless of their ethnicity deserve an apology from the various governments and the LTTE for having allowed this war to have continued for 30 years.

    The pro-LTTE diaspora also need to apologise for having funded & encouraged the slaughter of 2-3 generations of Tamil children — from a safe distance, of course.

    Implement the 13th Amendment? Yes. When you lose a war, you don’t get what you were fighting for, through other means. If you could have, you needn’t have gone to war.

    Explain to me how you hope to force the SL govt to implement the 13th Amendment whilst simultaneously threatening it with sanctions and war crimes trials. Haven't you guys learnt anything yet?

  210. Rajapaksa Stupidity has no limits
    Rajapaksa ‘s genocidal war brought nothing to the Sinhalese people except misery, hunger and foreign domination ( International Monetary Fund (IMF)/World Bank (WB)/World Trade Organization (WTO)
    Global powers including India are pressing the Rajapaksa government to clean up the marks of inhuman acts perpetrated during the war. It has been reported that several European Union nations are poised to pass resolutions against Sri Lanka, similar to those passed by the United States Senate sometime back, applying pressure on the country to conduct an independent probe into allegations of war crimes. Some have warned that these resolutions may be directed at imposing economic sanctions. If Sri Lanka does not solve the Tamil national problem , then it is giving space for alien powers to intervene. Even today it is not too late to think of a solution for the Tamil people.

  211. Forcible registration of Tamils continues

    TNA Parliamentarians brought to the cognizance of the Supreme Court that the forcible registration of Tamil residents in the North by the Sri Lanka Armed Forces is continuing despite the undertaking given to the Court by the Attorney General, to suspend it immediately.

    Attorney General had, on March 3, given an undertaking to the Supreme Court to suspend immediately the forcible registration of residents of Jaffna and Kilinochchi districts by the Security Forces and the Grama Niladharis(Village Officers).

    Deputy Solicitor General Buwaneka Aluvihare appearing for the Attorney General had given this undertaking, sequent to the rights violation petition filed by TNA Parliamentarians.

    Upon the undertaking given by the Attorney General, the Petitioners had withdrawn their petition and the proceedings were terminated.

    Jaffna district Parliamentarians Mavai Senathirajah, Suresh Premachandran, Appathurai Vinayagamoorthy and Eswarapatham Saravanapavan as well as the Kilinochchi district Parliamentarian Sivagnanam Shritharan had filed petition seeking the termination of the impugned forcible registration.

    They had cited Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, Jaffna Security Forces Commander Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, Army Spokesman Udaya Madawala, Jaffna Government Agent Ms Imelda Sukumar and the Attorney General as Respondents.

    Aggrieved by dishonoring of the said undertaking by the State, they filed the motion today through their Attorney-at-Law Moahan Balendra to revive their said application to enable the taking of appropriate steps in terms of the law and to mention this matter on one of the dates: 15th or 16th or 17th of March.

    In the motion, they state they withdrew the said application on the strength of and in the light of the solemn undertaking given to Court.

    They further state it has been brought to the notice of the Parliamentarian Sivagnanam Shritharan who is one of the petitioners that registration by the military is continuing in some areas in the Kilinochchi district.

    They lament that the registration is conducted by collecting information of people through forms being handed out for filling and photographs being taken of those people and that these registrations have taken in Kandawalai on and around March 7 and in Pooneryn on March 12 and 13.

    They alleged the continuance of the questionable registrations contravene the undertaking given by the State and is, in the circumstances, an act of Contempt of Court.

    Petitioners who are TNA Parliamentarians elected to the Parliament from the list of Ilankai Thamil Arasu Katchi (ITAK) known as Federal Party.

    They had, in their fundamental rights petition, sought immediate termination of alleged forced registration and the practice of photographing and obtaining Rs 100 from residents in Jaffna and Kilinochchi, particularly the residents of Kilinochchi district were allegedly forced to sign forms printed and written in Sinhala.

    They had complained that the stigmatization through the singling out the residents of Jaffna and Kilinochchi districts from citizens of the entire country amounts to degrading treatment, especially when such singling out results in treatment resembling the treatment of common criminals and thus amounts to a violation of the right to freedom from degrading treatment under the Constitution.

    They had alleged that the ex facie illegal and ultra vires action and inaction of the Respondents in failing to ensure equality before the law and the equal protection of the law to those individuals illegally required to register in a manner violative of their fundamental rights has violated and jeopardized the fundamental rights guaranteed to such individuals under the Constitution.

    They had also alleged that the policy of requiring only a certain ethnic group from particular geographic area to register is based purely on the race and place of origin of such individuals and amounts to a violation of the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution which specifically provides that no citizen shall be discriminated against on the grounds of race, religion, language, caste, sex, political opinion, place of birth or any such grounds.

    They had bemoaned this form of registration was causing fear and panic within the people of Jaffna and Kilinochchi, criminalizing the entire people of the region and that it was discriminatory whereas these types of measures were not undertaken in the Southern region and in other parts of the country.

    They persisted these measures are counterproductive to the goal of achieving reconciliation in the country.

    They had claimed the purported and allegedly illegal exercise of policing functions by the military is evidence of a growing militarization in the governance of civilian affairs in the Northern and Eastern Provinces at large.

    They complained the alleged arrogation of these powers by the Sri Lanka military constitutes a complete subversion of the rule of law and is emblematic of extra-legal military rule in those areas.

They used chemical weapons and cluster bombs on innocents, but they continue to deny the usage of such weapons.

    Sri Lankan forces have destroyed Schools, hospitals and farm lands and made the whole place into a graveyard for the Tamils.

    Sinhala government with racist agendas , China and India with their strategic interests and UN with corrupt officers are the evil ingredients of this dirty war that has cost the lives of many thousands innocent Tamils.

    Defendants of human rights and the world powers who fought many wars to restore freedom for their own citizens have now seen the faces of the master magicians who orchestrated the war in Sri Lanka.

    Although India gave the strategic directions and China provided with the weapons for the war, it was the Sri Lankan armed forces that carried out the massacre of Tamil civilians. A country that is well known for slowly wiping out its minorities found a perfect opportunity to cause maximum damage to the innocent Tamils with the blessing of their new masters.

Many families still haven’t found out where their sons and daughters are. Thousands of families have lost their entire livelihood but they are not provided with any help to re-establish their lives. Abductions and killings of Tamils are still continuing.

    Many Tamils are risking their lives by fleeing the country on damaged boats and ships. Sri Lankan rulers are not only persecuting the Tamils in Sri Lanka but also making the lives miserable for those who are fleeing to other countries.

    Agents of Sri Lanka, some of them who work as pseudo terror experts and journalists in other countries are demonising the Tamils who are struggling for their survival even in the seas. These fake experts continue to deceive the international community by identifying every Tamil child, mother and father as terrorists.

    Sri Lankan government regularly appoint individuals with doctorates and other higher degrees as cabinet ministers and propaganda activists to lobby in the UN and in foreign countries. Many of them speak in fluent English and having citizenships in other western countries and their main role is to justify the atrocities that are committed by the Sri Lankan government. These individuals are experts in blaming the victims and protecting the criminals.

    Sri Lankan government also has their own pseudo terror experts working in foreign soils and their main role is to defend the Sri Lankan government and to identify anyone that opposes the Sri Lankan government as terrorist. Sri Lanka spends millions on propaganda and to pay for consultants and propaganda firms that are working round the clock to hide or justify the atrocities committed by the rulers of Sri Lanka.

    In the last sixty five years more than three hundred thousands Tamils died in Sri Lanka. They were killed by bombs, guns, swords and knives. Many Tamils went through physical abuse, torture, isolation and rape in the hands of the Sinhala soldiers before their death. Thousands of Tamil women were raped. More than fifty thousands were maimed. Many thousands have become orphans and windows. More than a million had to flee the country in order to save the lives.

    US Senate Calls for Justice

  222. @Sivaraja:
    Arrogant? No, just relieved that the LTTE is finished. Relieved that no more bus bombs in the South and no more stray artillery shells in the North. Why an apology only to Tamil war victims? All of Sri Lanka’s war victims, regardless of their ethnicity deserve an apology from the various governments and the LTTE for having allowed this war to have continued for 30 years.

    The pro-LTTE diaspora also need to apologise for having funded & encouraged the slaughter of 2-3 generations of Tamil children — from a safe distance, of course.

    Implement the 13th Amendment? Yes. When you lose a war, you don’t get what you were fighting for, through other means. If you could have, you needn’t have gone to war.

    Explain to me how you hope to force the SL govt to implement the 13th Amendment whilst simultaneously threatening it with sanctions and war crimes trials. Haven’t you guys learnt anything yet?

  225. US to boycott ‘Defeating Terrorism’ showcase
    The Sri Lanka Army and Defence Ministry have invited 54 countries to attend the showcase to be held in May in Colombo.
    http://www.lankanewsweb.com/news/EN_2011_03_14_001.html

    Rulers of Sri Lanka are continuing to vomit out worms of lies to justify their atrocities against innocent lives. Telling the truth is considered a crime in Sri Lanka.
    They lied about the objective of the war, weapons used, number of civilian causalities and military operations.

    Although they initially claimed that the objective of the war was to defeat the LTTE, they have in fact killed and wounded several thousands of innocent Tamil civilians with heavy weapons. They used chemical weapons and cluster bombs on innocents, but they continue to deny the usage of such weapons.

    Sri Lankan forces have destroyed Schools, hospitals and farm lands and made the whole place into a graveyard for the Tamils.

    Sinhala government with racist agendas , China and India with their strategic interests and UN with corrupt officers are the evil ingredients of this dirty war that has cost the lives of many thousands innocent Tamils.

    Defendants of human rights and the world powers who fought many wars to restore freedom for their own citizens have now seen the faces of the master magicians who orchestrated the war in Sri Lanka.

    Although India gave the strategic directions and China provided with the weapons for the war, it was the Sri Lankan armed forces that carried out the massacre of Tamil civilians. A country that is well known for slowly wiping out its minorities found a perfect opportunity to cause maximum damage to the innocent Tamils with the blessing of their new masters.

    This is one of the controversial wars in the history. Although the Sri Lankan forces had barred all the reporters and journalists into the war zone, images and videos of the dying civilians were regularly sent out to individuals and organisations all over the world.
    Millions of evidences are already available to prove that Sri Lankan forces had committed war crimes and those who are responsible for these crimes should be brought to justice.

    Sri Lanka has sinister plans in confiscating lands of Mu’l’livaaykkaal

    Sri Lanka has sinister plans to confiscate the three large coastal villages, Mu’l’livaaykkaal East, Mu’l’livaaykkaal West and Ampalavan Pokka’nai, where the last stages of the Vanni war took place.

    Original inhabitants of 18 hamlets of the villages are not allowed to resettle and there are secret plans to relocate them to confiscate the stretch of rich marine wealth, said a press release of the Tamil National People’s Front (TNPF).

    Mines are still the pretext, but even after 22 months the SL military has not even permitted de-mining the land where thousands of Eezham Tamils and their fighters sacrificed their lives

    Meanwhile, with Chinese assistance, colonial SL occupying the country of Eezham Tamils has recently built a fortress-like military base over a cemetery of the LTTE heroes at Koappaay in Jaffna.

  239. Grief-stricken Tamils are subsisting here rather than living in Sri Lanka

    Tamil families are living under plastic sheets wuch are stitched to make up for walls of a home . All conceivable human activity takes place either inside the enclosures that are no bigger than six feet by six feet . Many Tamil families share bathrooms. As for the public convenience facility, the less said the better. Given the condition, the Tamils use the jungle for open defecation.

  240. Prevention of Terrorism Act must be Repealed Immediately

    The PTA has remained in the statute book over the last thirty years. The normal laws of the land are quite adequate to deal with any threat, real or perceived. The dangers of retaining legislation that allows the law enforcement authorities to bypass the normal legal safeguards for the ordinary citizens are only too obvious. The extra-ordinary becomes the norm and normal activities, whether legal or extra-legal, are suppressed taking cover under the extra-ordinary legislation. Many held under the PTA without any charges being framed against them for many years. Another issue is the admissibility under the PTA of "confessions" made to Police Officers as evidence before courts.

    The normal law of the land provides that confessions are valid only if made before a Magistrate. This provision is for good reason. The Magistrate records the confession without the presence of the Police and has to make sure that there has been no threats, inducements or intimidation of the accused and that the confession is made of his own free will. Indeed, the Magistrate tells the accused that there is no compulsion for him to make a confession and is given time to consider before making the confession.

    All these safeguards are conspicuously absent in the PTA and a Police Officer of the rank of ASP or higher can record a "confession" within the confines of a Police Station

    Allegations are often made of inducements (‘You sign this and you will be released soon’) and threats (physical violence and intimidation) for refusal either to make a confession or to sign a prepared "confession". That is why the safeguards provided in the ordinary law of the land are so important and need to be restored and preserved

    This is also why the Asian Human Rights Commission, which has over the years, like the Civil Rights Movement in an earlier era, been campaigning for adherence to the rule of law and for protection of the rights of the ordinary citizen, has mounted a campaign for the repeal of the PTA

    There is no longer any reason for the Prevention of Terrorism Act in Sri Lanka; on the contrary, there are many compelling reasons as to why it should immediately be repealed

    PTA is too draconian and many of the provisions in the act could not have been justified. This has been pointed out by local legal opinion, local human rights groups and governments around the world, as well as international human rights agencies and several United Nations agencies and experts.

  241. In 27 GS areas in the Puthukkudiyiruppu, Karaithu’raippattu and Oddusuddaan divisions of the Mullaiththeevu district the de-mining process has not started yet. 38,452 people of the Mullaiththeevu district are not resettled yet. Sri Lanka says that it still conducts ‘searching’ operations in the district, it will take a long time for it to permit de-mining and it will take another long time to complete the de-mining.

    On the pretext, Colombo is secretly working for demographic changes aiming at eliminating the country of Eezham Tamils. This is a gross violation of international norms of human rights. Sri Lanka on its own will never stop grabbing lands of Tamils. An international case in this regard has to be made against Sri Lanka and there should be an international intervention, the TNPF press release said.

    Formal requests and press releases made by Tamil parliamentarians are ineffective. This matter has to be taken to the UN. Even the diaspora organisations are not taking care in this regard. The diaspora should press the UN Human Rights Council and the governments of its countries to bring in solutions, the TNPF further said.

    Meanwhile, commenting on the situation, a left-wing Tamil politician said: “The three powers, USA, India and China that contributed to Colombo’s war against Eezham Tamils, continue to find Sinhala militarization of the Tamil country serving their greed in the island.”

    “None of them show even a fraction of the interest they demonstrate in grabbing economic and strategic concessions through Rajapaksa regime in resolving issues in the island that are of wider interest to humanity.”

    “The way the war-crimes military generals are laundered as diplomats and honoured as ‘peace laureates,’ and the way an ethnic Army is deployed in permanent and widely dispersed bases not only to terrorise another people but also to be used as economic forces doing agriculture, business etc., indicate that all the said powers have decided it as a policy to actively contribute to an imperceptible transformation in the island towards an institutionalised ‘Sri Lankan’ model ethnic-military rule.”

    “Unless the civilised world gives enough pressure on these powers to alter their approaches towards the island and unless the people in the island demonstrate that the greedy powers cannot have their ways through such means, the Rajapaksa administration and the SL military will go unchecked not only in their genocide against Tamils but also in militarizing the entire island.”

    “Very soon the Sinhalese will realise the wider justification that was lying in the all-alone way the Eezham Tamils fought their liberation war,” the left-wing politician said.

  243. For 63 years Sinhalese has been destroying the socio-economic fabric of the Tamils in Sri Lanka

    63 years have almost destroyed the socio-economic fabric of the Tamil-speaking peoples in the Northeast and there are all signs what has been happening in the last two years will continue which is enough to complete the destruction in two more years.

    Effectively it’s the political will of the ethnic majority that can bring about a country with equality for all and thus peace and prosperity for all.

    If that cannot be done, there must be a period when the Northeast must be left alone to develop itself as a separate entity

  244. A lot of people take examples for separation USSR, Yugoslavia and Sudan. All these countries have one thing in common. Somebody setup these entities forcefully. USSR by Lenin based on communism. Yugoslavia based on communism by Tito. Sudan by british in late nineteenth century. Darful in fact been independent till 1st world war.

    Sri Lanka Army (SLA) occupying Vanni is stealing funds donated by China for the resettlement of uprooted Vanni people to construct permanent housing schemes for its personnel, in Kokkaavil, located west of A9 road in Vanni, civil society organizations in K'linochchi said. Uprooted civilians forcibly taken by SLA soldiers to work in the constructions said that even two storey buildings are under construction in an area where new roads have been laid. Meanwhile, around 3,000 uprooted families, brought to be resettled in Vanni by Sri Lanka government, continue to live under trees left abandoned while Sri Lanka government exploits international assistance meant for them to settle Sinhalese families from South, Suresh Premachandran, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian said.

Narayanan was the chief of India’s Intelligence Bureau during the IPKF times and was the NSA during the Vanni war. He and the present NSA, Shiv Shankar Menon, handled India’s role in the war and in the way the war ended. During the war, both were accused of wielding ‘extra-parliamentary’ powers.

    We have millions of evidences to prove that a systematic genocide is taking place in Sri Lanka while the Nations are watching. Neither UN nor any other world power is being able to stop the madness that is still going on in this country.

    Praising the Sri Lankan regime for slaughtering thousands of innocents and letting the Tamils to languish in the concentration camps is another example that we have become real hypocrites and jokers who have bigger mouths, smaller brains and corrupt souls. Playing cricket with a country that is flowing with the blood of the innocent men, women and children, shows that we no longer have any moral principles to guide our lives. We are now even quite comfortable to sit and have tea with a Hannibal while his hands are still stained with the blood and his room is filled with the stink of rotting human flesh.

    Sri Lanka has sinister plans to confiscate the three large coastal villages, Mu’l’livaaykkaal East, Mu’l’livaaykkaal West and Ampalavan Pokka’nai, where the last stages of the Vanni war took place. Original inhabitants of 18 hamlets of the villages are not allowed to resettle and there are secret plans to relocate them to confiscate the stretch of rich marine wealth, said a press release of the Tamil National People’s Front (TNPF). Mines are still the pretext, but even after 22 months the SL military has not even permitted de-mining the land where thousands of Eezham Tamils and their fighters sacrificed their lives. Meanwhile, with Chinese assistance, colonial SL occupying the country of Eezham Tamils has recently built a fortress-like military base over a cemetery of the LTTE heroes at Koappaay in Jaffna. http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&art

    We have millions of evidences to prove that a systematic genocide is taking place in Sri Lanka while the Nations are watching. Neither UN nor any other world power is being able to stop the madness that is still going on in this country.

    Praising the Sri Lankan regime for slaughtering thousands of innocents and letting the Tamils to languish in the concentration camps is another example that we have become real hypocrites and jokers who have bigger mouths, smaller brains and corrupt souls. Playing cricket with a country that is flowing with the blood of the innocent men, women and children, shows that we no longer have any moral principles to guide our lives. We are now even quite comfortable to sit and have tea with a Hannibal while his hands are still stained with the blood and his room is filled with the stink of rotting human flesh.

    Sri Lanka wants to weaken the Tamils in order to establish a Sinhala Buddhist State. Genocide in Sri Lanka is real. Innocents are still being tortured, raped, murdered and starved.

    Sri Lanka Army (SLA) occupying Vanni is stealing funds donated by China for the resettlement of uprooted Vanni people to construct permanent housing schemes for its personnel, in Kokkaavil, located west of A9 road in Vanni, civil society organizations in K’linochchi said. Uprooted civilians forcibly taken by SLA soldiers to work in the constructions said that even two storey buildings are under construction in an area where new roads have been laid. Meanwhile, around 3,000 uprooted families, brought to be resettled in Vanni by Sri Lanka government, continue to live under trees left abandoned while Sri Lanka government exploits international assistance meant for them to settle Sinhalese families from South, Suresh Premachandran, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian said.

    Illegal excavation of limestone threatens ecology of Jaffna

    Threatening the entire groundwater and fragile ecology of Jaffna peninsula, a private Sinhalese company is engaged in the illegal excavation of limestone in the High Security Zone (HSZ) while Rajapaksa government refuses to reveal details of this enterprise in the area from Maaviddapuram to Keerimalai where the uprooted Tamil residents have not been allowed to resettle for the past twenty years.

    The indiscriminate excavation of limestone in a 4 sq km area at depths of nearly 40 feet has already caused seepage of sea water and it is feared the area becoming submerged.

    The underground channels that bring in freshwater to the innumerable aquifers of the peninsula, have an underneath entry into sea adjacent to the locality of the quarries. It is obvious how indiscriminate quarrying and the possibility of seawater coming inside can affect the potable water of the masses.

The most disturbing of these are the government’s repeated claims that there were under 100,000 civilians left in the Vanni at the beginning of 2009 when officials later conceded there were some 300,000 and that the security forces were not using heavy weapons in civilian areas when the military eventually admitted they were. http://www.lankanewsweb.com/news/EN_2011_03_16_00

The most disturbing of these are the government’s repeated claims that there were under 100,000 civilians left in the Vanni at the beginning of 2009 when officials later conceded there were some 300,000 and that the security forces were not using heavy weapons in civilian areas when the military eventually admitted they were. http://www.lankanewsweb.com/news/EN_2011_03_16_00

  296. Sinhalese destroying Tamil lands

    Illegal excavation of limestone threatens ecology of Jaffna

    Threatening the entire groundwater and fragile ecology of Jaffna peninsula, a private Sinhalese company is engaged in the illegal excavation of limestone in the High Security Zone (HSZ) while Rajapaksa government refuses to reveal details of this enterprise in the area from Maaviddapuram to Keerimalai where the uprooted Tamil residents have not been allowed to resettle for the past twenty years.

    The indiscriminate excavation of limestone in a 4 sq km area at depths of nearly 40 feet has already caused seepage of sea water and it is feared the area becoming submerged.

    The underground channels that bring in freshwater to the innumerable aquifers of the peninsula, have an underneath entry into sea adjacent to the locality of the quarries. It is obvious how indiscriminate quarrying and the possibility of seawater coming inside can affect the potable water of the masses.
