Hillary Clinton’s Blessing On The Farcical Commission

Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State of the United States of America, according to published reports, gave her blessings to the farcical commission on lessons learned and reconciliation at her recent meeting with minister G L Peiris. Hillary Clinton’s speech has been given high publicity and it could be of immense value as propaganda to the government whose human rights record has been challenged both locally and internationally.

Hillary Clinton in her speech evaded all the basic issues relating to this commission. She said that similar commissions have produced good results in other countries. In talking about similar commissions, she only was using the word ‘commissions’, rather than the content of the commissions. If she was referring to similar commissions such as the truth and reconciliation commission in South Africa, or some commissions in Latin American countries, these commissions and the Sri Lankan commissions have a world of difference between them. The minister for the media, Mr. Keheliya Rambukwella himself, clearly stated that this commission is going to be nothing like that. He said that this is going to be a very indigenous commission carried out according to local tradition. Local tradition so far, judging by the commissions in the past about which very extensive studies are available, were all farcical commission…………....  READ MORE

Sri Lanka lectures to the world on the levity of its war crimes and its serious breaches of the international law

By Satheesan Kumaaran

After the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government won the parliamentary election in April this year, Sri Lanka appointed a law professor, G. L. Peiris, as the foreign minister who, for the first time, makes his week-long official visit to the U.S starting May 23.  He the met UN Secretary, General Ban Ki-Moon, on May 24th at the UN headquarters in New York, as well as the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton on May 28 in Washington D.C.  The learned professor also met several other U.S. politicians and down played the serious nature of the crimes against humanity, the war crimes, and genocide. He also lectured to them that in so far as the Tamils were concerned they could not have been happier.

Peiris was rushed to the U.S. within a week of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) holding its first meeting between 17 to May 19 at the historic National Constitution Centre in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the Constitution of the U.S was adopted in 1787.  William Ramsey Clark (a former US Attorney General) and Domach Wal Ruach (the Secretary General of Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) USA) were named as keynote speakers of the inaugural event…………..  READ MORE

TRANSNATIONAL GOVERNMENTS THE WAY FORWARD

TRANSNATIONAL GOVERNMENTS THE WAY FORWARD

Quantum Leap Forward in Democracy; Invented by Tamils.

I do not understand why a country like India is worried about the concept of transnational governments. If Multinational corporations are allowed to operate as Transnational Corporations providing goods and services why not a body politic taking over the social and cultural need of a community? What other forms of mechanism is available to protect the numerically small minorities?

India must grow up to free its people from feudalism and living standard disparities. Why does it bother India if the Tamil brethren in various part of the world want to provide minimum basic living facilities to people in South India? Either they should go it or let some one else do it. The request to India is if you don’t want us to do it, you do it. All we are trying do is to equalise the disparity in the standard of living. No one is interested in diving India unless the Indian people feel that they are being marginalized. That is why India has to grow up. You cannot have it both ways. Either let the people go or let the people be free. Human freedom must be translated into Human rights, if not it is bound to fail. Every citizen must have equal right to his freedom within parameters set by the people themselves……………. READ MORE

TAMIL DIASPORA DIVIDED OVER ‘TRANSNATIONAL GOVT’ – KARUNA

  • Karu said that the diaspora had broken into three groups – US-based Visvanathan Rudrakumar, Norway-based Nediyavan and a London-based group.
  • TGTE is “another pipe dream like Vellupillai Prabhkaran’s Eelam.”
  • The Minister asserted the Tamil diaspora will not return to Sri Lanka and should create issues for their survival abroad.

Karuna, a former Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) commander who is now a Sri Lankan Minister has said the Tamil diaspora is divided and had conflicting views on the so-called ‘Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam’. The Tamil diaspora cannot make a significant impact internationally as it faces internal dissension and is now divided into three segments, Deputy Minister of Resettlement Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna said………….

Lanka cautions EU on Tigers

Sri Lanka has urged the European governments not to provide any political or symbolic support towards the LTTE’s initiative to forming a so called Provisional Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam.

Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Belgium and Luxemburg and the EU Ravinatha Aryasinha said the LTTE’s initiative to forming a so called “Provisional Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam” (PTGTE), with “country working groups” at national and regional levels in western countries was a ruse to perpetuate its terrorist struggle.

Ambassador Aryasinha observed that these bodies constituted through pseudo elections and comprising largely of known LTTE members/activists, was being used by many Tamils who have entered western countries illegally, and who would in the normal course of events be sent back home given the restoration of normalcy in Sri Lanka, to keep the pot boiling and to seek to remain relevant in countries where they have sought asylum………….
