LTTE massacre of 600 policemen Not even inter-departmental inquiry

As the surviving Holocaust Jews said:

We too say NEVER AGAIN! 

GOSL: You Have the Sacred Duty to LIQUIDATE Tamil Separatist Violence at the FIRST SIGN the Next Time!

LTTE massacre of 600 policemen Not even inter-departmental inquiry


Fearing the wrath of then President Ranasinghe Premadasa, the police never initiated at least an inter-departmental inquiry into the circumstances under which the LTTE had executed over 600 police officers and men at the onset of the Eelam War II in June 1990, the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission was told on Monday Jan 24, 2011.


The police top brass had been too scared to probe the massacre of those who had surrendered at the behest of President Premadasa, retired SSP Tassy Seneviratne said. The veteran cop was responding to a query by LLRC member former Foreign Secretary H. M. G. S. Palihakkara during Monday’s sessions.
Seneviratne retired in 1995, the year the Eelam War III erupted with the sinking of two Fast Gunboats anchored at Trincomalee.

Identifying the then Foreign Minister A. C. S. Hameed as a key player in President Premadasa’s negotiating team, Seneviratne asserted that IGP Ernest Perera had had no alternative but to comply with the presidential directive issued to police deployed in some parts of the Eastern Province.

Seneviratne said that the LTTE’s success had been built on shortcomings and strategic miscalculations on the part of successive governments. Had there been adequate support, the police could have thwarted the LTTE attempt to overrun police stations in the East in 1990, he said.

The LTTE assassinated Premadasa on May Day in 1993. Even after Premadasa’s assassination, successive governments did not initiate an inquiry.

Commenting on the then LTTE leader in the Batticaloa area Vinayagamurthy Muralitharan, now a Deputy Minister in the ruling UPFA coalition, Seneviratne emphasised the government, particularly President Mahinda Rajapaksa, should be wary of having an opportunist like Muralitharan aka Karuna. Recalling the circumstances which led Karuna to switch allegiance after being summoned to Kilinochchi in March 2004 by LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran, Seneviratne urged President Rajapaksa to be cautious. The likes of Karuna could be dangerous, he stressed.

Seneviratne submitted a confidential letter to former Attorney General C. R. de Silva, Chairman, LLRC, claiming that the writer of that letter could shed light on ‘LTTE operations.’
The veteran cop urged the LLRC to recommend to the government to initiate an inquiry into war crimes committed by the LTTE. The massacre of policemen could be categorised as a grave war crime, he said.
Responding to LLRC Commissioner Dr. Rohan Perera, Seneviratne acknowledged that the families of those 600 policemen hadn’t been looked after by the department. The then IGP had been in a dilemma for want provision to do so, he said.

Pressed by Palihakkara, Seneviratne recalled how the police top brass had refused to carry one of his articles, which dealt with the massacre of policemen, in an annual publication of the police for fear of President Premadasa.

LLRC Chairman urged Seneviratne to provide whatever information he had with regard to the families of those policemen killed in the single largest massacre in this country.
The Commissioners indicated their keenness to ascertain whether the families of massacre victims had been given step-motherly treatment, compared to officers and men killed in other confrontations with terrorists.

Two things are needed to be done, mandatorily, as the natural outcome of this news:

1) The Tamil Diaspora, the LTTE supporting CSMFs who financed the LTTE's terrorism must be held accountable for this VERIFIED AND DOCUMENTED WAR CRIME (yes, this is not just a cooked up, highly speculative at best "war crime" charge, like what the LTTE agents in the Diaspora try to bring, with demented frequency, against SL)

2) Ranil Wickremasinghe CSMF ponna bastard, and his brand of UriNePee wimps, must be held accountable for what happened - as it happened on their watch.

They must be charged with dereliction of duty, collaborating with state enemies and criminal negligence for allowing mass-murder (just to name a few charges)and prosecuted according to the law of the land.

Washington (CNN) -- Charge George W. Bush with war crimes?

Some Bush critics have for years demanded a prosecution of the former president. They had hoped that the incoming Obama administration would put Bush on trial. No luck.

Now they have changed their focus, filing actions in foreign courts. Last week, these Bush opponents filed an action in Switzerland in advance of a Bush appearance at a charity fundraiser in Geneva.

Shortly after the filing, the Bush appearance was canceled. Bush is in no danger of going to a Swiss jail, obviously. But it's important that all Americans understand: This use of law as a weapon of politics is an assault upon the basic norms of American constitutional democracy.

American presidents are subject to law, of course: American law.

In the case of torture -- the offense of which Bush's critics accuse the president -- the relevant law is the War Crimes Act of 1996, which provides penalties up to the death penalty for abuse of military detainees.

This law was adopted in conformity with U.S. obligations under the 1986 Convention Against Torture, which called upon all signatory states to "ensure that all acts of torture are offences under its criminal law." (It's often said that the convention "bans" torture, but that is not correct: It creates an obligation on member states to ban torture by their own nationals.)

This use of law as a weapon of politics is an assault upon the basic norms of American constitutional democracy.

In 2001, Bush asked government lawyers: What exactly constitutes "torture" under U.S. law? Is isolation torture? Sleep deprivation? What about putting an insect in the cell of a prisoner frightened of insects? How about waterboarding?

Bush asked those questions precisely because he wanted to comply with the law. He wanted to go up to the limit of the law, but not beyond. That's why he wished to know where the limits were found.

The legal answers Bush got -- and the methods his administration used -- have divided Americans for almost a decade. Republicans lost the 2008 election, and the Obama administration changed policy. Which is how we decide policy questions in the United States: by elections and alterations of government.

When it entered office, the Obama administration considered prosecuting the CIA officers who had done the interrogations. It seems to have considered legal action against higher-ranking officials, too. The Obama administration rejected both options.

So when people file actions in Switzerland against Bush, it's not merely the former president they are targeting. They are targeting the entire American legal system. They are demanding that Switzerland override an American decision about which Americans should be prosecuted for violating an American law.

They want Switzerland to say the following:

"We disagree with your attorney general's interpretation of your War Crimes Act. We are therefore arresting you in Switzerland for acts you ordered in the United States against armed military enemies of the United States.

"We will put you on trial in Switzerland, where none of the protections of the U.S. Constitution apply. Instead, you will be tried according to the rules of Swiss law -- even though you had no vote in the making of that law and have no legal representation in the Swiss government.

"Admittedly, none of the acts here have any legal connection to Switzerland at all. None of the people involved are Swiss, neither the alleged torturers nor the alleged torturees. Our involvement is purely coincidental; this action could just as easily have been brought in Luxembourg or Uruguay."

In other words, what the people bringing actions against Bush are calling for is a new kind of global legal regime in which law is severed from political representation. Call it human rights without democracy.

very timely post.

i "overheard" something about our man in the east. in true MD style i say, use him or finish him.

3). hold tamil racist political parties accountable for war crimes for providing IDEOLOGICAL SUPPORT.

LTTE never had any ideological wing. they borrowed it from these MFs.

Moshe Dyan said...

1. RP didn't want to "hurt" the LTTE and allowed it to keep on killing soldiers/policemen.

2. CBK didn't want her ceasefire end so she oked killing sailors/soldiers.

3. RW was arselicking the LTTE and willfully ignored mass killings of civilians/soldiers/secret service personnel.

all these MFs are at fault for COMPLECENCY IN WAR CRIMES.

Konnapu Bandara said...

Asithri, dear chap, you hit the nail right on the head when you said 'VERIFIED AND DOCUMENTED WAR CRIME'. If this is not a war crime I cannot imagine what one would look like. These police officers were ordered by cowardly UNP leadership to surrender to terrorists without even firing a shot. Then they were lined up and gunned down in cold blood. You can not even compare this to bogus charges about Padesan and Co. where terrorists were pretending to be surrendering and then blowing themselves up. Also there were major fire fights occurring at the same time and the troops were in a fighting stance. Where are all these Human rights vultures HRW, Amnesty, TAG, FAG etc. on this?

Cheers!

On another side issue, it seems that we are letting Indian fisherman to take our natural resources away. It is imperative that we protect the livelihood of our Fiserman without any hesitation. It is a tricky business most certainly and we need to coordinate the effort with our own fishermen to repulse these bastards.

Jaffna fishermen capture Indian poachers, trawlers - Ex-SLN Chief’s prediction comes true
February 15, 2011, 9:30 pm

By Shamindra Ferdinando

Jaffna fishermen angered by what they term Sri Lankan government’s inaction vis-à-vis poaching by the Tamil Nadu fishing fleet, yesterday resorted to direct action and captured about 100 Indians together with their trawlers in the Sri Lankan waters. The Indian fishermen were handed over to the Point Pedro Police Station last night. None of them had been harmed, sources said.


Former Sri Lanka Navy Commander Admiral Thisara Samarasinghe predicted in his submissions to the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission late last year that Sri Lankan fishermen would be left with no alternative but to take the law into their hands and confront the Indian poachers in the sea unless the government took action to prevent the illegal exploitation by Tamil Nadu fishing fleet of Sri Lanka’s fishing resources.

Northern fishermen in many small craft had surrounded the Tamil Nadu trawlers and seized over 20 of them, Jaffna based sources told The Island. "Some Sri Lankan fishermen boarded the Indian vessels before ordering their surrender," sources said.

Irate northern fishermen launched a similar offensive in 1989 at the behest of the LTTE, which had taken on the IPKF, while the then President Ranasinghe Premadasa was talking peace with the outfit in Colombo. The Premadasa government successfully negotiated the release of the Indian boats and their crew members.

The Sri Lanka Navy had witnessed yesterday’s capture by the Jaffna fishermen of Indian vessels but desisted from intervening because of allegations by Tamil Nadu politicians that Indian fishermen were being harmed by the Navy, sources said.

Many Indian vessels had managed to break free from the Sri Lankan fishermen’s cordon and flee into the Indian waters amidst booing from their Sri Lankan counterparts.

Sources described the incident as peaceful.

Colombo had been informed of the incident and was in touch with New Delhi, diplomatic sources told The Island.

Moshe Dyan said...

sam,

there is a bigger issue here than meets the eye.

we must do everything to seperate the blood relatives - TN fishermen and northern SL fishermen.

if these two get togther, we cannot stop their illegal activities.

so i would say, they fell into our trap.

what a nice way to "predict" things!! lol! excellent planning. know when to step down.

but the fish issue must be addressed by launching more trawlers to fish in these areas under SLN protection. after all its our waters.

we have to almost exploit these areas so that indians will not have much to catch.

Sam Perera said...

Moshe,

I like the plan of SLN protecting our fishermen. We need to take care of our citizens first in any case.

Asithri said...

Yeah KB, it just boggles my mind that we (the GOSL of today) is NOT squeezing maximum mileage out of this war crime against the LTTE and LTTE supporting CSMF bitches in the West.

Get a top-notch law firm and on the basis of pay-if-win, sue the LTTE supporting/supported Tamil Diaspora CSMFs to the hilt - at least as substantial damage payments to the surviving kith and kin of these Policemen who were slaughtered like chicken.

I think we, namely the GOSL, have a lot to learn of propaganda attacks and counter attacks.

OaO Asithri

Asithri said...

Imagine if the LTTE had a record of 600 LTTE cadres surrendering to SLA - based on a directive from the LTTE high command - and later they were never to be seen again?

Imagine how the LTTE CSMF Tamils in the west would take that case to the HRW, AI, ICG, etc. etc. and try to screw our country to the hilt - on "war crimes" ???

What is so complex about this whole thing?

I fail to understand...and it just fcuking infuriates me that I still cannot get a straightforward answer from anyone - i.e. why we are going to let the LTTE CSMF Tamils in the west off the hook so easily for this heinous WAR CRIME!!!

OaO Asithri

Asithri said...

As for the bloody fishermen's issue, I still say a strong message along the lines of "FCUKING TOILETNADU PATHETICS DO NOT CROSS INTO SL TERRITORIAL WATERS AS IF YOU DO SO, YOU MIGHT NOT LIVE TO BE SORRY" is needed.

FCUK the fish!

What's more important here is our territorial integrity and security.

From the birth of the LTTE to the heyday of the LTTE, these FCUKING TOILETNADU PATHETICS did much to harm our country...yes, they were the lifeline of the LTTE as they kept ammunition (smuggled from Pakistan's warlords) fuel, explosives, detonators, nourishments including vac-pacs of freeze-dried high protein foods ,etc. all came via these FCUKING TOILETNADU PATHETICS to the LTTE and that is another reason why this war dragged on for this long.

As such, they must be regarded with EXTREME PREJUDICE and "TREATED" accordingly me thinks - in the High Seas!

Here's an amusing bit of news:

[SriLankan flight makes an emergency landing after UK man raises false bomb alarm
Mon, Feb 14, 2011, 09:45 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.


Feb 14, Colombo: A SriLankan Airlines aircraft has made an emergency landing this afternoon due to a bomb threat later found out to be false.

The SriLankan flight from Colombo to London was landed on the Male airport after a British national had raised alarm of a bomb being on the plane, airport security officials said.

Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF) personnel evacuated all 199 passengers on board and searched the plane and passengers' baggage. The plane left on its journey to London after finding no bombs onboard.

Reports from Male said the 60-year old British man identified as Clement Paul has been handed over to the Maldives police. He is being questioned but not under arrest, the Maldivian authorities have said.]


Now in the western world, after 9/11, this type of attack on airline security - whether real, imagined, or a prank - will be taken with UTMOST SERIOUSNESS and the perpetrator of such will be surely ARRESTED AND JAILED.

So, WTF gives???

A CSMF white-British can do this in an ShriLankan flight - and thereby cause grievous damage to not only the airline but to SL's tourism - and then that CSMF is NOT even arrested???

Fcukmeeeeeee

What is this world coming to???

How come this CSMF did not fall off the plane when disembarking and have a head fracture and then later died in a Maldives hospital?

sam,

further to what i said yesterday on the fishermen issue, this is the view of the north.

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 16 February 2011, 07:51 GMT]
Commenting on the fishermen issue in the Palk Bay, an Eezham Tamil social worker in Jaffna, long covering the crisis, told TamiNet that the Governments in New Delhi and Chennai have failed to take initiatives in providing alternatives to Tamil Nadu’s trawler fishing that had saturated the sustainability of fishing in the Palk Bay. It is not an issue between the fishermen of Tamil Nadu and Eezham alone, but a long existing crisis between the trawler fishermen and country-boat fishermen of Tamil Nadu itself, the activist said. The TN trawlers captured Tuesday in Jaffna, were staying on the sea for two days without getting any catch, before moving towards Jaffna.

If bottom-trawling fishing, carefree about sustainability, has destroyed the resources on the Tamil Nadu side, the establishments on that side are responsible to find alternatives, rather than allowing poaching into the waters of the subjugated and struggling nation of Eezham Tamils and triggering off a wedge between the folks on either side of the bay, the social worker in Jaffna said.

India could always provide alternatives for the trawler owners of Tamil Nadu in the waters of the Andaman Sea that has untapped resources. But New Delhi is perhaps afraid to give opportunities for Tamils in the waters of Andaman, the Jaffna social worker said, adding that the Tamil Nadu fishermen, especially from Naakappaddinam, should fight with New Delhi for their historical rights over maritime activities in the Bay of Bengal, without treading further on their devastated cousins on the other side of the Palk Bay.

When the country boat fishermen of Tamil Nadu were seriously affected by trawler fishing some decades ago, the then Chief Minister of Tami Nadu, Mr. M.G. Ramachandran undertook some measures to protect the weaker sections of fishermen and the older generation of them remember it with thanks even today.

The ongoing fishermen issue is a clear forewarning to the establishments in New Delhi and Colombo and to all the others who eye on the waters of the Palk Bay and the Gulf Mannaar that whether oil, tourism or strategic endeavours, sustainable agreements could be reached only when the sovereignty of Eezham Tamils on the waters is recognized and they are involved as a party, political observers commented.

these MFs want to escalate this problem and get BS political mileage.

LTTE crap trying to make a comeback

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 16 February 2011, 00:07 GMT]
The proscription of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in the European Union will be challenged in the Court of Justice of the European Communities in Luxembourg, said Amsterdam based lawyer Victor Koppe while giving an exclusive interview to TamilNet, Tuesday. Unlike the previous legal instances, now there is direct community involvement. Eezham Tamils in the legal field are actively involved in making this case, and the move is backed by a democratically elected body of Eezham Tamils in Switzerland, the Swiss Council of Eelam Tamils (SCET), said Arulnithila Deivendran, the spokesperson for the SCET. The attitude of governments to negate the sovereignty of Eezham Tamils by deliberately confusing it with the LTTE, has prompted the legal action, she further said.



Victor Koppe represents an Amsterdam-based law firm with wide range of expertise in International Law and European Law. Mr. Koppe, having experience in presenting cases in the tribunals on Cambodia and Sierra Leone, recently took up some cases of Eezham Tamils in the Netherlands, prosecuted for alleged involvement with the LTTE.

The EU declared the LTTE a terrorist organisation in 2006, following the earlier proscriptions of the USA and Canada. The ban criminalises any activity that could be connected to the LTTE. But, there are some good arguments why the LTTE cannot be considered a terrorist organisation and why the ban in the EU is legally flawed, Victor Koppe told TamilNet. The arguments have never been heard in a European Court of Law, he further said.

The LTTE is an organisation fighting for the fundamental rights of the Tamils, which is acceptable to the charter of the UN and the international treaties, is the position taken by Koppe.

The EU has recently extended the ban for another six months [WTF???] and the ban has to be challenged within a stipulated period of two months.

So much so for the big shot champions of "minority" this and that plus democracy. Imagine if this thing happened in SL involving many toilets and the NGOs who use them, para suddhas response/coverage would be like pissanaygam case.

The top traitor is off on a pilgrimage to his masters:

"Wickremesinghe for his part will most probably be taking wing overseas before the end of this month for a trip to the UK and there onwards to Europe. Reports indicate that the UNP branches in the UK have already been told to expect a visit from him. UNP types have been making sarcastic comments to the effect that RW will be canvassing for votes overseas, while they canvass for votes in Sri Lanka! But then again, if RW is not being invited for election rallies, and everybody, even Wickremesinghe loyalists like John Amaratunga and Joseph Michael Perera, would prefer to take Sajith around in the electorates, then what is the point in Wickremesinghe twiddling his thumbs here?

Chaps, insane trash from Traitor Ranil:

United National Party (UNP) leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday the cost-of-living bomb, which was about to explode would be more devastating than any bomb exploded by the LTTE.

Speaking at a UNP meeting in Gampaha Mr. Wickremesinghe referred to the soaring cost of living as a bomb which killed people slowly.

“Some 30 people were killed and several others injured each time the LTTE exploded a bomb but the cost of living bomb will destroy nearly every household,” he said.


Cheers!

Sam Perera said...

KB,

I am certain that Ranil has never seen at least a photo of carnage scene left by LTTE bombs. For this traitor, it is just "some" insignificant "30 people" died in LTTE bombs. The remaining 25,000 civilians just committed suicide. Aren't we glad that we never elected this low life?

KB, yes, when RanilW Ponnaya says:

"Some 30 people were killed and several others injured each time the LTTE exploded a bomb"

and downplays the LTTE's horrific deeds, he is showing his true colors - his always pro-LTTE stance which was amply evident in the CFA and how he allowed the LTTE to run amok and murder anyone at will when he was the PM for those awful two years.

But what's more evident here is his lack of acumen, wisdom and foresight.

He fails to realize that even a single bomb with even no casualties is bad for the country's economy as that can severely affect the much needed tourist revenues and the investor confidence.

Yes Sam, aren't we glad we did not elect this back-boneless low life to be our president!

Well well, here is the FIRST occasion of INTERFERENCE that we all knew would be coming as soon as we heard there was going to be an "Indian Consulate" in Jaffna:

[Indian Consulate in Jaffna interfered in judicial process’ - Consular General denies allegation
February 17, 2011, 8:37 pm

by Shamindra Ferdinando

The Indian Counsel General in Jaffna V. Mahalingam had interfered in the judicial process following the seizure of 112 Indian fishermen along with 18 trawlers in the general area north of Point Pedro on Tuesday night, sources told TheIsland.

The Indian Counsel General had raised the issue with the Point Pedro Magistrate Mrs. Sirinidhi Nandasekeran and sought an early release of the fishermen and their boats, sources said adding that in spite of Indian pressure, the Magistrate on Wednesday (16) had remanded the fishermen to judicial custody for 14 days.]


If GOSL does not nip this in the bud, then this will be the beginning of these Indian's interference in SL affairs and even likely giving support for "federalism" to the Tamil racist groups in N.

Anyway this story get's even more interesting...

[Sources said that some of the fishermen in custody had told the Point Pedro Magistrate that Tamil Nadu authorities had told them to go ahead with fishing in Sri Lankan waters] !!!

Yeah, now does this not all make sense?

LTTE and pro-LTTE CSMFs in ToiletNadu are determined to cause a rift between SL and India. To their advantage, there are Indian Tamil CSMFs also in the "Indian Consulate" in Jaffna to see things are taken care of and the fishermen are released back to TN so that they can be sent again and again.

Asithri, old boy, this is indeed a tough problem to resolve without causing a rift in our most important relationship with Indian Central Government. Do you chaps have any good ideas about what to do in this case? May be joint patrolling by Sri Lankan and Indian Navies with a clear line of demarcation at the international border like a line of solar power lighted buoys? I would say follow that up with immediate arrest of any fisherman caught on the wrong side and imposing heavy fines for repeat offenders.

Moshe Dyan said...

guys,

allow me to differ on raniloser's statement.

raniloser is right, atleast for once on the cost of living time bomb.

1. COL is extremely high and increasing at a rapid pace.

2. govt is unable to control it.

3. who suffers most? patriotic ordinary SLs.

4. who gains most? a few big businessmen in colombo-11 who are pro-LTTE and pro-UNP.

5. so it is ranil who sets up the bomb and warns of the bomb!! typical. this is not the first time this kind of mr. bean crap from raniloser. he also means his future plans.

6. the ONLY solution is COLONIZATION. all the kallathoniyas are flocking to the "south" and land avialable to cultivate is reducing by the month. ONLY the "north" has NEW land for farming, fishing. that is why COLONIZATION is the only solution.

7. stupid govt (more foolish than raniloser) doesn't realize it. why? bcos there are arselickers around them who CUSHION the impact to them and say everything is prim.

8. remember that sakkiliya dayasiri parajaya-sekara ridiculed the SLA for cultivating in papali???? why? bcos it affects their plan!

9. got should realize this. this is the ONLY way UNP can brinbg down the govt. all major players in this game (unlike in the war game) are UNPers. do you see the connection?

10. if we do COLONIZATION in the north giving free land to landless farmers and small time fishermen in the "south", food production will increase rapidly and the COL problem will be history. don't you agree? in addition it can reduce the "samurdhi" handouts to around 2,000,000 people who are from landless farming families.

11. but the real beauti is not that. that is the BACKFIRING of this new UNP-TNA pact just like a "dosthora hondahitha" movie!! lol! it will create a MASSIVE pro-govt vote base in the ONLY PLACE GOVT COULD NOT WIN. a double defeat for the UNP mr beans!!

please believe raniloser when he says this type of jokes. it is not his idea. someone else's. but he says it in his own stupid words.

Something HAS TO BE DONE about these pieces of shit and their activities.

"Targeting individuals



Last Monday. On St Valentine’s day, Sri Lanka Guardian, one of the many websites that have mushroomed in recent times had an article alleging that Maj General Kapila Hendavitharana who had served in the military intelligence set up and now serves as the Chief of National Intelligence has to answer for extrajudicial killings said to have taken place in the past. This article is reminiscent of the campaign carried out against Janaka Perera after he retired in 2001, and the government should be vigilant about the LTTE diaspora via various dubious fly-by-night websites targeting individual officers in the armed forces so as to demoralize not just the targeted individual but others witnessing this process as well. The Americans also carried out such psychological operations against targeted individuals in the Saddam Hussein regime before they invaded Iraq. They had paralyzed many Iraqi military officers with threats against them and their families long before bombs started dropping on Iraq.



Hence articles targeting important officers of the state should be taken very seriously. According to this website, Hendavitharana has more crimes to answer for than even Pottu Amman of the LTTE. Some of the accusations are way off the mark. For instance it accuses him of having formed the deep penetration units of the army (the units credited with knocking off Shankar the LTTE air wing chief and Charles the No 2in the LTTE intelligence set up) But this is not correct. The deep penetration units were from the Special Forces and not under military intelligence. The article says that the deep penetration units targeted civilians as well – which is plain nonsense because nobody is going to penetrate deep into enemy held territory, at the risk of being tortured to death if caught, just to kill civilians. Besides the rest of the army would have laughed at the Special Forces saying "You kill unarmed civilians but we, the ordinary soldiers kill Tigers armed to the teeth!" That’s not how things work in the army.



Hendavitharana is also accused of maintaining two killer squads even at this moment called the Ranjith Group and the Rajan Group, one headed by a Muslim which carries out extra-judicial killings in the north. A couple of weeks ago, this column had a note on allegations of Mafia rule in Jaffna. Our source however never reported any extra-judicial killings in the north. Who are they supposed to be killing? All allegations in Jaffna related to money making - not killing. A serious allegation against Hendavitharana is that he was behind the killing of Lasantha Wickremetunga as well. When such allegations are made, they tend to stick and could cause demoralization among the officer cadre and in an emergency everybody may try to play safe. A demoralized military or civilian officer cadre which prefers to play safe can be fatal to any state or government. These allegations are made to make it impossible for these officers to travel abroad and thereby to make them incur losses and to ruin their lives.

My blood is boiling at these so called "free media"/NGO type of dogs.

Anyway we can bump them off? As i recall a year ago myself and Moshe discussed ways of crashing Gonseka into the sea via a plane flight. Perhaps the same can be done to these pieces of shit.

They love money so much, they will jump on a trip to go wine and dine in some 5 star hotel for "services" rendered and contracts for additional "work". Perhaps we should seize to our advantage their greediness and get rid of them.

pol,

yes. these jokers must be stopped. this man is doing his job and he has a family. targeting individuals who have served the nation with honour should be protected from this type of crap.

so now they blame him for lasantha.

first it was gonzeka, then GR, then MR then kapila.

this is disturbing news.

from dailymirror.

eastern provincial council to unilaterally establish a police commission!!

"Eastern Provincial Council is to unilaterally establish the Provincial Police Commission stipulated in the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, despite the fact that the Government was yet to take steps to delegate the police powers to the Provincial Councils, sources said today.

The Eastern Provincial Council would send a motion to President Mahinda Rajapaksa through Eastern Province Governor after adopting it in the council, according to the sources.

The three member provincial police commission led by a Deputy Inspector General had to be appointed under the 13th Amendment to the Constitution once the President signs the relevant Gazette notification giving effect to the delegating police powers to the Provincial Councils.

Other two members of the Commission have to be appointed by President and Chief Ministers. However, none of the four Presidents served since the passage of the 13th Amendment signed a Gazette notification in this respect.

The transfers, promotions and disciplinary actions in respect of the police personnel in the provinces have to come under the purview of the provincial police commissions."

"Something HAS TO BE DONE about these pieces of shit and their activities."

This is the work of that deranged man Illangamuwa.

On a revlevant note, there is a musical show to raise funds for the survivors of the Sri Lankan warriors of first class, i.e. those all Sri Lankan MI officers who sacrificed their lives. First and foremost, Col. Muthalif and Mohan's names come up from the Millennium City treachery by Ranil Wickramasinghe and his stooges. The show is said to be held in Colombo on Feb-25. It will be damn frustrating to see these traitors including Ranilam and Udugampola bastards roaming free without paying for their crimes against Sri Lanka. I simply hope that somebody will bring justice to these bastards soon.

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 23 February 2011, 08:53 GMT]

The ashes of Parvathi Amma cremated Tuesday and waiting for ritual collection were desecrated by occupying SL military in Jaffna Tuesday night. Three dead dogs with gun shot injuries were put on the cremation spot and the ashes were scattered by running over the spot by military vehicles. Local people witnessed the movement of military vehicles in the location Tuesday night. Former TNA parliamentarian, Mr. MK Sivajilingam, guardian to the interests of Parvathi Amma, came out with strong condemnation of the desecration.

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 23 February 2011, 12:02 GMT]
Thousands of the students at the University of Jaffna Wednesday noon boycotted their classes as the news of SL military's desecration of the ashes of late Parvathi Amma, the mother of LTTE leader Velupillai Pirapaharan, Tuesday night. The students vacated the premises after putting up posters condemning the uncivilized act of the Sri Lankan military and condemning the Sri Lankan authorities for blocking them from participating in the funeral procession of Parvathi Amma on Tuesday.

The students also condemned the administration of the University for entertaining the SL Colonial Governor of Jaffna, Maj. Gen. Chandrasri and EPDP paramilitary leader, SL Minister Douglas Devananda, who visited the University Wednesday. Upon learning that the students were planning to protest against them, Chandrasri and Devananda had hurriedly left the University premises.

Hand-written wall posters were seen at many places within the premises of the University.

So only dead dogs were put on the ashes and the ashes too were scattered?

What F is wrong with that???

I would have thought that the news was going to be along the lines of:

"buckets of excreta were put on Prabhakaran's mother's ash-remains and the ashes too were mysteriously scattered" ...

As people who suffered under the LTTE heinous terrorist CSMFs, i.e. people whose mothers/fathers/sons/daughters were massacred by the LTTE - often not with just shooting but with hacking by sword and axe so that they bled a painful and slow death - would have a retribution along those lines.

http://rt.com/news/ten-day-protest-lybia/

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has warned Western countries against attempts of meddling in the Arab world to try to impose democracy.

Speaking after talks with the EU leadership, he said that previous efforts along those lines had led to victories for governments the West is now fighting to contain.
“Today, we say we're concerned about things happening in Libya. But the North African cell of Al-Qaeda is also concerned about what is happening in Libya. Do you think this is a coincidence?” the Russian PM asked.

“I would like to go back in history a little bit. The former leader of the Iranian revolution – where did he live?! He lived in Paris and as a whole he was supported by the Western community. Now the entire Western community fights against the Iranian nuclear program,” Putin pointed out.

“I remember just recently our partners were very active in supporting democratic elections in the Palestinian autonomy. And Hamas won. And immediately they declared Hamas a terrorist organization and started fighting against it. We need to give people a chance to determine their future themselves. We need to give them an opportunity to take a natural way without any foreign interference to build their future,” he concluded.

well said putin!

Good for you Putin to bring some much needed REALTY to this whole charade!

These western media moguls, like the CNN, i.e. the very so called "independent" western media who were gunning for our poor developing-world SL not long ago by harping on the "evils of govt-controlled media" or the "lack of media freedom" are today only showing clip after clip of what the "protesters" are into in the ME, but not a single word/sentence from the pro-establishment forces in those very countries (be it Egypt weeks ago or today in Libiya or elsewhere)!!!

Whatever the FCUK happened to that???

Oh, I forget - that lofty-mantra is only applicable for developing nations like SL, especially a nation like SL that defeated the murderous terrorist group LTTE despite these very western pundits - in so called independent media as well as the state - harping over and over again that "there is no military solution" and when they were being proven wrong rapidly, quickly picking up on the babble "war crimes" against that very nation!!!

Air Marshall Harsha Abeywickrema formally assumed duties as the 13th Air Force Commander a short while ago. Abeywickrama was enlisted to the Sri Lanka Air Force as an Officer Cadet in the General Duties Pilot branch on 19 April, 1980.



Air Marshal Harsha Duminda Abeywickrama completed his education at Royal College, Colombo and enlisted to the Sri Lanka Air Force as an Officer Cadet in the General Duties Pilot branch on 19 April 1980. On successful completion of training he was commissioned in the rank of Pilot Officer on 3 April 1982. During his illustrious career of 30 years, he held instructional, operational, planning, command & combatant command appointments including Commanding Officer of the first Fighter Squadron, Commanding Officer of Sri Lanka Air Force Palaly, Commandant Flying Training Wing, Base Commander of China Bay, Anuradhapura & Rathmalana Bases, Zonal Commander East and Chief Instructor of Air Wing of the Defence Services Command & Staff College. At the Air Force Headquarters; Air Marshal Abeywickrama served as the Deputy Chief of Staff, Director Air Operations and overlooked the duties as the Director Logistics.



Some of the notable achievements of his career were; the formation of the First Supersonic Fighter Squadron of the Sri Lanka Air Force and the Air Wing of the Defence Services Command & Staff College. He has had the privilege of being one of the first pilots of the Sri Lanka Air Force to gain competency to pilot the ‘F-7’ and ‘Kfir’ jets which were inducted to the Sri Lanka Air Force in 1991 and 1996 respectively. Further, during his tenure as the Director Air Operations he was instrumental in the revolutionary development of the combat capability of the Sri Lanka Air Force and was the driving force behind the many successful air operations during the Humanitarian Operations which ultimately ended the three decade long terrorist conflict.



Air Marshal Abeywickrama received the ‘Rana Wickrama Padakkama’ and the ‘Rana Sura Padakkama’ for acts of bravery during flying missions in the North-East conflict zones, and the ‘Utthama Seva Padakkama’ as recognition to devotion to duty, merit and exemplary conduct.




Air Marshal Abeywickrama is a graduate of the Air Command & Staff College, Air University, Alabama, USA. He earned a Master’s Degree in International Studies from Kings College, University of London, and a Master’s Degree in Management from the General Sir John Kotalawala Defence University in Sri Lanka.

In addition, he holds a Commercial Pilot’s License with an Instrument Rating and is an A - 2 Qualified Flying Instructor.



Air Marshal Abeywickrama practices a personnel leadership philosophy based on Buddhism. His interests include Music, Philosophy and Golf.




He is married to Neelika an Attorney-at-Law by profession and they are blessed with one son, Kasun who is an Undergraduate.

Moshe, old boy, I totally agree. We have only 10 or so real fighter-bombers in our inventory and it's a shame to loose these performing for air shows. Instead pilots should spend their time training to counter future 'Parippu' drop type threats from hostile neighbors. I am not sure how well our chaps can hold up in an air-to-air combat situation.

Cheers!

Konnapu Bandara said...

Chaps, more important than the fighter-bombers, we have lost a patriot par excellence. Sri Lanka also has spent a lot of money on his training.


Senior officers of the ranks of Squadron Leader and Wing Commander are given advanced training and education at the Defence Services Command and Staff College (DSCSC) at Batalanda, Makola which was established in 1997 as the Army Command and Staff College.

Basic officer training is carried out at the Air Force Academy at SLAF China Bay in Trincomalee. The academy offers a two-year program of basic flight training and a variety of specialized courses. Pilot training was carried out at SLAF Anuradhapura by No. 1 Flying Training Wing using Cessna 150s for basic training and Nanchang CJ-6 (PT-6) aircraft for intermediate training. This has since been moved to SLAF China Bay. Advanced jet training is carried out by No. 14 Squadron in K-8 Karakorums also based at SLAF China Bay. Specialized training for different types of aircraft is carried out by the respective Squadrons; this includes F-7 Skybolt, Kfir TC.2 and MiG-23UB aircraft used for this purpose by No. 5 Jet Squadron, No. 10 Fighter Squadron and No. 12 Squadron respectively at SLAF Katunayake. For training of transport pilots, Harbin Y-12s of No. 8 Light Transport Squadron are used; Bell 206s are used for helicopter training.[25]

Initial Ground Combat Training for both officers and other ranks of both regular and volunteer forces, are carried out separately at SLAF Diyatalawa in the garrison town of Diyatalawa, it also conducts advanced training for SLAF regiment officer cadets. Following training at SLAF Diyatalawa, general duties (pilot) branch officer cadets are sent to the Air Force Academy for flight training, and airmen and airwomen are sent to Advanced & Specialized Trade Training School for specialized training in different trades. Air traffic controllers receive schooling at special facilities in Colombo as well as officer cadets from other branches. In addition, approximately twenty-five officers a year receive advanced training abroad, most commonly in Britain, India and, in recent years, at the United States Air Force Academy.

"Sri Lanka could be hauled before a war crimes tribunal over the alleged killing of ‘many thousands of civilians’ in the final months of its separatist war with Tamil rebels, a top US official says.



In the toughest warning since the end of fighting in May 2009, US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, Robert Blake, said Sri Lanka risked a forced international investigation, Sky News reported today.



Blake, a former ambassador to Sri Lanka, said it was ‘preferable’ for Sri Lanka to have its own investigation in line with internationally accepted human rights standards, rather than face an external inquiry.



‘It’s important to say that if Sri Lanka is not willing to meet international standards regarding these matters, there would be pressure to appoint an international commission to look into these things,’ said Robert Blake.



In a video interview on Monday from Washington, Blake said reconciliation, accountability and human rights were among the key elements the US wanted to see to normalise ties with the South Asian nation.



‘The UN has estimated that many thousands of civilians were killed in the final few months of the war,’ Blake said.



Blake cited the UN Security Council reporting Libya to the International Criminal Court last week as a signal of global concern over human rights.



He said he was not comparing Sri Lanka with Libya, but said the security council’s unanimous decision against Libya over the weekend underscored the resolve of the international community regarding crimes against humanity, Sky News reported in its website."

"Meanwhile, both New Delhi and Colombo carefully isolate Tamil Nadu from investing or sending personnel into the island, media circles in Colombo said.

New Delhi and Colombo recently agreed to start passenger service shipping between Trincomalee and Visaakappaddinam (Vizag) in Andhra Predesh. Direct flight between Vizag and Colombo also has been agreed upon. Visaakappaddinam is the major naval base of India in the eastern coast."

[LTTE threat to disrupt Havard discussion on Lanka turns into damp squib

An LTTE threat to disrupt a panel discussion on Sri Lanka at the Kennedy School, Harvard on Tuesday if it was attended by Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN Dr Palitha Kohana ended up being a bluff due to effective counter action taken by the organizers and the Lankan envoy accepting the challenge and attending the event.

Sources said the planned disruption was led by a former Sri Lankan Tamil journalist who was convicted and sentenced to
20 years in jail for terrorist related activities here in September 2009, but was pardoned by President Rajapaksa in May last year and has since been living in America.

Now a Neiman Fellow at the Harvard Journalism School, he had tried to arrange a boycott, failing that, had threatened to stage a “hartal.”]


Yeah, can you believe this? The same bastard who was lamenting about the "lack of freedom of speech" in SL wanted to go into a hartal to stop Kohona from speaking out in the US!

they too must be held responsible for his conduct. if this goes on like this, other kallathoniyas will follow kasippu joseph.

however, i don't think the entire church or most part of it is supportive of tamil elam campaign or its connected nonsense. it is like child abuse by the same church. not because child abuse was the church's agenda but because it was DELIBERATELY overlooked by the church.

we must totally ban toilet nadu catholic, etc, priests coming to SL other than as visitors. they can easily outnumber the locals and they come with TN racism which complements TE racism.

can't LTTE remnants eliminate kasippu joseph over a dispute in sharing foreign remittences! :)

the hunt for his killers would reveal 10 more pro-TE priests sharing foreign remittences meant for the LTTE!!

"While the US is reportedly attempting to intervene in Libya indirectly by funneling weapons via Saudi Arabia, the UK and France are drafting a resolution for the UN Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over the North African country.
The US appears reluctant to directly intervene in the unrest in Libya. So, according to the Independent newspaper, America has asked Saudi Arabia to airlift weapons to the rebels in their struggle against Gaddafi. The Saudis have been told that the rebels in Benghazi need anti-tank rockets and mortars as a first priority to hold off attacks by Gaddafi's armored forces, and ground-to-air missiles to shoot down his fighter bombers.

The Saudis’ assistance, if confirmed, would allow Washington to disclaim any military involvement in the supply chain, even though the arms would be American and they would be paid for by the Saudis.
Supplies could reach Benghazi within 48 hours, the Independent reports.

The situation in Libya is critical, with hundreds of people dead and Gaddafi saying he will fight until the last man standing.

NATO has also launched 24-hour air surveillance of Libya with AWACS reconnaissance aircraft, US Ambassador to NATO Ivo Daalder said on Monday, Reuters reported.

"The decision was made to indeed increase the surveillance of the NATO AWACS capability, make it 24/7.

We'll have a better picture of what is really going on in this part of the world," Daalder was quoted as saying by Reuters.
With US allies being overthrown across the Middle East and Africa, the US is desperate to maintain its influence in the region."

SL Air Force is acting crazy. This is idiotic at best.

මේ අතර විනාශ වූ කෆීර් යානා වෙනුවට අලුතින් කෆීර් යානා මිලයට ගැනීමේ අදහසක්‌ නැතැයි ගුවන් හමුදා ආරංචිමාර්ග පැවසීය.

ගුවන් හමුදාව සතුව ප්‍රමාණවත් යානා ඇතැයි ද එම ආරංචි මාර්ග කීය.

Military planning is not something you do in a day. We need to defend our air space together with EEZ. Please plan accordingly to welcome unwelcome guests in our best possible way. Do not ever trim down our fighter jet capacity.

sam,

agree.

but remember KB's link few months back? SL is planning to buy russian MiG-29s according to it.

govt takes over colombo hilton.

it was mostly owned by hotel developers which is owned (64%) by the treasury.

so technically hilton colombo was indirectly owned by the govt all the way.

this follows a rupees 11 billion in default payments by hotel developers to the govt.

best would be to sell it to a hotel chain.

May the descendants of the great patriot Rajapaksa Wickramasekera Mudiyanselage Monarawila Keppetipola and his fellow fighters be honored by the modern generation of patriots for the great sacrifice their great ancestors made for Mother Lanka.

May be it is the time to demand British war criminal who destroyed my country to pay back for their actions.

"Sri Lanka is to revoke British Governor’s infamous Gazette Notification

Posted on March 11th, 2011
A.A.M.Nizam

The government has taken a momentous decision for revoking the Gazette Notification issued by Sri Robert Brownrigg, to condemn all those who rebelled against the British Rule in Sri Lanka in 1818 for the liberation of the country from the British Imperialist Rule.

Several governments after the independence of Sri Lanka in the past, although they wanted to revoke this ignominious Gazette Notification, could not take action in this regard.

Under the said Gazette Notification all those who participated in the uprising were not only condemned as “Traitors” their properties were also confiscated by the government.

Records relating to this uprising known in the Sri Lankan history as the “1818 Uva-Wellassa Uprising” states that it was the very first struggle launched in Sri Lanka to gain independence from the British, and it was launched by the Keppitipola Disawe, who was assisted by many regional leaders in providing men and material from various regions. President Mahinda Rajaspaksa’s great grandfather Mr. Vaniga Chinthamani Mohotti Don Davith Hendrick Appuhamy had been the leader of the Ruhuna (Hambantota – Ambilipitiya area) who had provided men and material in this manner.

History records also say the government led by British not only confiscated the properties of the people involved in the uprising, but soaked the Sri Lankan soil with an unprecedented blood bath by massacring all male population above 18 years of age, destroyed all cattle and other animals, and burnt all paddy fields in the area of uprising which was known as Wellassa, denoting “One hundred thousand paddy fields”.

Under the proposed plans, those participated in the uprising will aptly be given recognition as “National Heroes” erasing the dark image placed on them and a National Declaration will be awarded on their behalf to the children/grand children of their families. This function is scheduled to be held on 22nd May, which is the Republic Day of Sri Lanka.

On the instruction of President Mahinda Rajapaksa the Gazette Notification issued by Governor Brownrigg has already been brought to Sri Lanka. Minister of Cultural Affairs Mr. T.B.Ekanayake said that this ignominious gazette notification will be submitted to the Parliament and it will be revoked with the signature of President Mahinda Rajapaksa."

we should campaign for demanding damages from the colonialists for the destruction they caused to SL.

this include changing the ethnic composition of the country for their own needs.

Sam Perera said...

Moshe,

It is unlikely that the great grand father of MR was part of the 1818 rebellion. MR's father was born in 1905, his grand father could have been born in 1850 the earliest. Therefore, his great rand father could have been born in 1800 the earliest. It is unlikely that an 18 year old man lead Ruhuna in that time. However, MR's great-great grand father is a possibility.
