Political Journalism

A particularly disturbing article has been published in an online news website claiming that a former Director Military Intelligence (DMI) is going to resign after being forced to testify against General Sarath Fonseka.

General Karunasekara, as a Brigadier and DMI worked very closely with General Fonseka during the humanitarian operation. He was part of a team of talented officers working under Fonseka who saw the war to its very end. This alone is not evidence to tie the loyalties of Karunasekara with Fonseka.

It is true that a few intelligence officers were questioned after the Fonseka Fiasco by the CID. The questioning was not heavy and the CID wanted to know it these officers had been instructed by Fonseka to conduct any activities against the state. General Karunasekara was not among those questioned.

The other blatant lie in this report is that intelligence officers under General Kapila Hendevitharana as DMI/DGMI, had taken bribes from the LTTE and that General Karunasekara (then Brigadier) had been appointed DMI by Fonseka to replace Hendevitharana and rid the forces of this corruption.

General Hendevitharana is an officer with an exemplary record of service for Military Intelligence. We do not wish to go into exact details of his work during the war but many would know from published reports the services we are referring to.

This is not the first and last time that Political Journalism has attempted to defame good officers. These sites once destroyed the illustrious career of General Fonseka. Let us hope they do not do any more damage to the Sri Lanka Army.

Parrot of Pakisland;

There is no point of discussing how good/bad other bloggers are. Sadly that is all you have in all your comments. Bottomline always is; the fellow bloggers are really bad.

I have no interest in debating about individuals here like a linda langa sangame. It maybe your way. So there is no cure.

Get a good doctor mate. You badly need to be cured.

Hello Machang Diplomacy

Seeking solitude from the hurly burly politics of the day, we were at the Water Hole sipping the Waters of Nuwara Eliya and reflecting on universal declarations by men of substance and those of straw. We were contemplating the particular declaration that ‘a perfect man can never be created’ when we picked up the election manifestos of aspirants to parliament and realised how outdated these time worn truisms of the so called ‘greats’ are.

Aspirant MPs

An aspirant, rosy pink in complexion in posters is seen treading the muddy paddies, kissing old ladies, dishevelling the hair of kids, though not many poya moons ago was accused of various misdemeanours by his lady love. He pledges to be a perfect servant of the people in the coming six years. Another, superman in the making who is better known for the business of betting on horses and his foray into the gentlemen’s game, that left the gentlemen’s game in an irrecoverable mess, is promising to take us into a brave new world of technology and finance.

Lanka’s saviour

Even better is the mug of Rohitha Bogollagama who is now claiming from every defaced wall in Colombo City that ‘he won the whole world for his country’ (Rata venuwen lovama dinoo). What exactly he won for his country, is not quite clear but cynics say that losing the GSP + would have lost tens of thousands of poor garment factory girls their jobs. An economist aspiring to be an adviser to the next administration claims that we got to learn to live without the GSP+ like we did to live without quotas. But in the meanwhile how are the poor garment workers to live? asks a club cynic.

One of the most original thinkers that shifted into the Rajapaksa constellation has been Rohitha Boggs. He broke new ground in the world of diplomacy with his firm and sincere declaration of ‘Hallo Machang’ diplomacy which he explained in the simplest of terms: ‘We will appoint only friends whom we can trust.’

Foreign ministries, the world over, attempt to attract the best available talent into their foreign services. The best of universities are scoured for the best available talent. According to the Boggs principle, the best of friends and relations are selected because they are whom the Rajapaksa administration can trust. Thus, most of those in the foreign service selected on merit under this scheme will be left kicking their heels at Janadhipathi Mawatha while the Boggs-Rajapaksa friends and relatives will be in the plum chanceries around the globe enjoying the la dolce vita.

..tbc..

Hallo Machang

Already the ‘Hallo Machang’ scheme appears to be bearing fruit. A recent report said that a Japanese who had given out his house to a Sri Lankan diplomat had complained that the Sri Lankan diplomat on completing his tour of duty has taken with him in his container a grand piano and a priceless clock of immense sentimental value to him. The Japanese national, it is reported, is refusing to return the deposit paid to him by our embassy, till his property is returned.

‘Deiyo Sake’ was the exclamation of a member of the Water Hole who had once got bowled over with the extra strong Sake — the Japanese rice wine. Perhaps it goes down well with the exclamation of our grandfather who used to cry out ‘Deiyo Sakki’ (May God forbid) whenever he heard an incredible story.

We are not passing judgement over the diplomat concerned (a political appointee) since the results of the Foreign Ministry inquiry is not known. He may be quite innocent of the said violation. But it must be said that if true, the lifting of a grand piano will go down in the annals of the Guinness Book Of Records.

Foreign Ministry pundits will no doubt be wagging their finger and saying that this is what happens when time tested practices of diplomacy are discarded and indigenous varieties of ‘Hallo Machang’ diplomacy are adopted. But it has to be pointed out when age old practices — even British imperial practices — such as in plantation management are discarded and our own indigenous practices are substituted, the ‘Hallo Machang’ principles creep in.

We saw it in the take over of local and foreign owned plantations where friends and relations of the ruling party looted the estates that were a part and parcel of our national treasure. Only Dr. Colvin R. de Silva as Minister of Plantation Industries, although a Marxist, resisted the change of systems of management. ‘I will not change the system, until I have a better system to replace it with,’ he declared.

The tragedy of this country is that during the past 50 years we have been replacing systems that worked perfectly well with experimental and at times harebrained systems that have brought ruin upon us. Education, Public Administration, Justice, Police are some such fields and now we have shifted on to the field of foreign affairs. Certainly, ‘change we must’ but we must change for the better. Not for the worse or the unknown.

Sri Lanka had become so cocky that we are now taking on the Western World and even the United Nations Organisation. Certainly if we can become a world power on our own with Rajapaksa and Bogollagama giving the lead, it will be all very well but not at the same time asking the UN Chief for jobs for our siblings

By Helasingha Bandara

(March 12, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) It is disheartening to read the arguments of some of the so called intellectuals , some self-proclaimed and others who are accepted for their known academic achievements or professional brilliance, on the subject of the governance of Sri Lanka,particularly in the light of the past presidential election and the forthcoming general elections. I do not include in this category, the people who just add ‘Dr.’ in front of their names sincerely or bogusly if their writings have been blatant eulogies to the present government but others, genuinely or mistakenly, juxtapose the past with the present for comparison in support of their arguments.

Let us take an example to illustrate my point. It is not an exaggeration to say that extrajudicial killings, abductions, arrests, judiciary interventions, nepotism, ‘family bandism’, discrimination against political opponents, framing of the innocent, fraud, multi-fold corruption and malpractices, financial misappropriation and so on happen in Sri Lanka with the government blessing. When this government is accused of the murder of Lasantha Wikkramathunga, the abduction or likely murder of Prageeth Eknaligoda or twenty year imprisonment or the virtual murder of Tissainayagam, some intellectuals argue that they have seen the worst during the Premadasa era. The purpose of the comparison is to neutralise the intensity of the accusation.

No doubt that many people were put to death by Premadasa’s killer squads. Nevertheless, the comparison between UNP that killed more and the UPFA that killed more or less does not justify killings. The country needs a government that condemns, prohibits and punishes murder. People want a peaceful country without private or state crimes. A crime is a crime whoever commits it. They should be punished in the same manner. It should be considered even graver when the state commits crime because the state is supposed to eliminate the lawlessness and protect people from harm. The people become helpless if the state itself becomes the murderer. “Wetath niyarath goyam Ka nam Kata pawasam e amaruwa” My view is that the people who make such comparisons, intentionally or inadvertently, condone violence, murder, crime, and in brief, the tyranny of a government.

Then a question arises as to why some intellectuals do that. Is that for the five Ps; position, promotion, protection, perks or preposterousness? If it is the former, Sri Lanka can never recover from the curse of people electing and supporting rogue governments. It is easy for a government to please a few and ignore many if the few have the know-how and are prepared to defend the government. Such intelligentsia works to the detriment of the country and its people and thus become traitors. If it is the latter they cannot be included in the category of intellectuals.

A country needs intellectuals with spines to advise governments of their misdeeds and to point out the repercussions of such deeds. A country needs intellectuals who would criticize and condemn murder even if it is only one man murdered during the whole term of a government. A country needs intellectuals to voice their own opinion and rally the opinion of others against bad governance. A country needs intellectuals to lead the rest on the right path for their own good. Is Sri Lanka not blessed with such fortunes? I speak to the conscience of the true intellectuals.

Is Sri Lanka (MR GOSL) missing an enemy?

First LTTE (GRBR), LTTE diaspora, Tamil diaspora, NGO's, IC, EC, UN, HR activist,trade unionist,Uni Students, Journalist, Religious Leaders,SF and now "Colombians".

With all due respect to the "Colombians" who have lost all respect for values, they still command and control 90% of the wealth of the country.
A silent majority!

A minority of the "Colombians" enjoy a better way of life compared to the diasporas and the diashoras.
Second homes in the West, Annual Ski trips, Excursions to Rio, Jazz festivals, Grand Prix, children at Uni's abroad and all the trimmings of SL home comfort.

I wonder if its them that are targeted out of sheer jealousy.
After all they don't have to account to the "whites", but keep their head down, smile and occasionally pass a brown envelope.


SL is truely missing an enemy!

Moshe Dyan said...

the myth of state sovereignty. Unfortunately this is true.

a good read.

if anyone thought development and sovereignty can hold SL together, think again.

they CANNOT keep SL together.

sovereignty is not as strong today as it used to be.

we MUST rely on something else to keep the nation in tact.

that is colonization.

it creates a DEMOCRATIC method of IMPOSING sovereignty across the country. there is no other way.

Moshe Dyan said...

jay whore copied my link from SLDF. didn't ya???

anyway i agree with what nihal has to say.

the concept of STATE SOVEREIGNTY is fast losing power (subject to one exception) to PEOPLES' SOVEREIGTY.

when applied to SL, it means there is an INCREASING likelihood of invoking SELF DETERMINATION of a ppl in an area.

this is the reality our leaders fail to understand.

concequences will be catastrophic.

SL must be flexible with SOVEREIGTY. it should now focus more on PEOPLES' SOVEREIGTY and less on STATE SOVEREIGNTY. in other words, SL should use PEOPLES' SOVEREIGTY to boost STATE SOVEREIGNTY.

how can this be done???

COLONIZATION.

yes, colonization is the ONLY way to do it. once the north is adequately colonized, peoples' sovereighty in the north will equal SL sovereigty.

it is as simple as that.

Moshe Dyan said...

ok. the exception.

china, russia.

when did PS start becoming powerful over SS????

at the time the soviet union collapse, eastern europe got divided. elevating PS over SS was beneficial for the west to SPEED UP the break up.

by abkhazia and south ossetia posed a grave risk to the west and as a result the push for PS has reduced since 2008.

for the first time in many years, no new countries were created in 2009!!!!

the tide stopped b4 turning.

although a suprepower, china didn't assert it's ways im the world arena until now. but it is doing so now.

china is forcing the world to rethink the arctic/antarctic agreements, human rights, state sovereigty, nuclear proliferation, cluster bombs/APMs, etc.

although this may take time, it is FAST gathering popularity in the UN.

we must not forget that the UN is ONLY made up of member STATES. excapt a few in the west, many others have disintegration problems. this makes the rethinking very appealing to MOST countries.

but as i said b4, this takes time. but in the meantime, the trend towards PS from SS will lose steam.

this gves enough time for SL to adequately colonize the north so that either way (PS or SS), it's safe!!!

Moshe Dyan said...

"Thousands of Tamil refugees from Sri Lanka are preparing to risk the 5000km voyage to Australian waters as soon as weather conditions improve, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Senior naval sources claim people smugglers will bypass the traditional route through Indonesia or Malaysia in favour of the riskier route direct to Christmas Island.

It is understood senior Sri Lankan naval figures directly warned their Australian counterparts of the looming humanitarian crisis during high-level talks a month ago.

Senior navy sources said they were told several refugee boats set sail for Australia from northeastern Sri Lanka last year but had not been heard from since, the the Daily Telegraph said."

they must not be stopped. they are going for a better life in a rich country. they can NEVER get it in SL even if SL has the highest economic growth rate in the world.

that helps SL too.

if thousands of tamil refugees mean 2,000 (minimum), they will get their families too. if a family has 4 ppl on average, we are talking about 8,000 ppl.

if NE tamil population is 1,600,000; 8,000 is 0.5% (minimum).

population growth rate of SL is around 1.0%. this means NE tamil population growth rate will fall to 1.0% - 0.5% = 0.5%.

voters for tamil racist parties will further reduce as a percentage.

if the number of boat ppl can be somehow increased to 4,000, the 0.5% becomes 0.0%!!!!!

also my boat strategy should be put to good use.

let LTTE terrorists held up as refugees escape by boat. blow up the boats in mid sea.

WITHOUT A TRACE!!!

can save millions for both SL and other countries.

Sri Lanka's Media Ministry call on journalists to declare assets


Sri Lanka's Mass Media and Information Ministry has called on every journalist in the country to submit a declaration of their assets by April 30, 2010.

The Mass Media and Information Ministry is currently under the purview of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Ofcourse this is not a witch hunt.

Sri Lankan journalist enjoy the freedom of expression, are never threatened or "muzzled".

It's a conspiracy by the Western media engaged in false reporting.

We appeal to the Sri Lankan Journalist to follow the example set by Basil Rajapakse.

I was listening to a discussion between journalists and listeners today on Russian suicide attacks.

The sentiments are divided against bombers and Russian government.

We are in a way blessed with not having such attacks anymore.

However, as citizens we have high level of expectations from the government.

While we thank the efforts put in to irradiate LTTE Terrorism, we don't consider it as good karma when we see other problems today to in order to forgive the government for their shortcomings.

How Fonseka Plan to fight corruption


With more revelations to come, there is little doubt, the image of retired Gen. Fonseka as a soldier who took to politics to battle corruption is fast receding. Denials by him of involvement by family members have been proved wrong and he has to answer questions on how he inherited foreign funds. CID detectives probing the deposits of more than Rs 75 million (including US $ 527,000) are to question him after revelations that he was the recipient.



Thus, the detectives have established one fact. It was Gen. (retd.) Fonseka and his campaign staff who had disbursed the funds received.

According to a CID source, one of the lists found in computers used at the Rajakeeya Mawatha office, had a list of moneys paid out by S.H.A. de Silva, who was Campaign Manager and Personal Assistant to Gen. (retd.) Fonseka. It later turned out that de Silva was a convicted criminal.

The list of payments made by De Silva includes Rs 72 million to two retired Major Generals.

Others included a journalist, who once served the state media. A close associate of retired Gen. Fonseka, he is listed as receiving sums amounting to over Rs 3.4 million.

A close family member received Rs 8.8 million and a campaign staffer of the UNP Rs 10 million.



Other payments listed include Rs 24.7 million to a woman described as S.H.A. de Silva's girl friend, campaign expenses from November to December 2009 - Rs 9.9 million, conduct of a news conference Rs 75,000 and purchase of computers reportedly worth Rs 300,000.

another good analysis by badrakumar

hamid karzai the afghan president knows US will repeat what it did in iraq - a regime change. he wants to act b4 that.

india tried hard to bypass pakistan and team up with afghanistan but the afghans prefer china.

now china is already moving into afghanistan without dropping a drop of blood and not valuing SU sacrifices AT ALL!!!

china is planning for the eventuality of US troops pulling out.

they sure know how to win support.

i'm sure india is shitting now. iran is a little bit pro-china. cinese investments are expected to rise in iraq as well. with afghanistan and pakistan teaming up with china on GEOPOLITICAL STRATEGIC affairs, chinese influence reaches the middle east at a fcuking fast speed!!!

what will happen to "super powers" over which china stretches westwards?????

they get isolated, bypassed, ignored.

when the southern frontier is ALSO closed for india, china can force india to toe the line or...............

SL being the only "independant" nation here, focus will be on SL too.

Konnapu Bandara said...

When Rajapaksa won the presidency less than five years ago, the existence of the ethnic problem and the need for a political solution were deemed axiomatic truths. Only a cabal of Sinhala supremacists, vociferous but politically negligible, occupying the margins of Lankan polity and society, refused to accept these twin realities. When President Rajapaksa repeatedly stated his disbelief in the existence of an ethnic problem, he was positioning himself within this Sinhala supremacist space. Concrete actions accompanied his ideological shift. The unitary state was declared unalterable. The homeland concept was rejected. The north-east was de-merged, sans a referendum. Sinhala extremist discourse became de rigueur, again. Gradually, almost insensibly, Sinhala supremacism began to assume a new gravitas, until it possessed the political heights and permeated the southern society.

All right chaps, time to take a bow. We have made life for this shameless traitorous tart Tisaranee Gunasekara and all her ilk miserable. New 'reality ' is a bloody disaster for these traitors.

"They are called black widows because they have usually lost their husbands, brothers or close relatives in one of the two Chechen wars that Russia fought against Islamist rebels since 1994 or indeed in more recent clashes with Russian-backed forces. Grieving for their loved ones and intent upon revenge, black widows, who are usually poorly educated, can therefore be recruited and trained up by Islamist extremists with relative ease."

Of that group, 196 will be elected directly to parliament, with the remaining seats filled by parties based on their total vote percentages. Parliament can be an effective check on the presidency but Rajapaksa's United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) is expected to retain its majority.

A Sinhalese Apology

"There are two levels to this all too brief comment. First it is an apology. It is an apology on behalf of the ‘Sinhalese’ , my own private ethnic identity. ‘Sinhalese’ have this remarkable ability to embarrass themselves, to be ignorant of their insufficiency and to elevate their ignorance to a shameless self-glorification. Pardon me, if I’m enraging the poststructural anti-essentialists by essentialising my prejudices against ‘my own’ people, for I do not see any other way to understand the strange comments made by these Manjulas and Claudes. Being a ‘Sinhalese’, I think it is my responsibility (as Spider Man’s uncle once said “with great power comes great responsibility”) to make it crystal clear:"

Sujeewa, Diyasena and Asithri;

Thanks to all of you for your detailed views.

My own frustration arises from the fact that my country has already suffered un deserved hardship, our people have suffered unduly some of the harshest punishment in history and have yet survived to fight another day, and that the very people they trust are yet again trying to betray them for nothing better than self-aggrandizement.

Sujeewa - I did discuss the offer from the govt earlier last year, but did turn it down. I wans't qualified for it, but felt all that they wanted was a 'loyalist' in a key position, who will look after the family rather than the nation. I cannot and will not be that person. My loyalty will always be to my nation and that is at any cost to anyone else.
So intead I accepted an interesting position with practically no boundaries, in a private sector institution and am enjoying the work, especially the opportunties to work with a group of very talented youngsters.

I still believe MR is one of the best things that happened to SL. There's no argument there. But the irritating fact is the increasingly bold and unchecked efforts by his family, friends and friends' friends to usuper power with scant regard for anyone else. As much as plasuible deniability exists in some accusations levelled against these folks, even professionals in financial institutions now agree that a massive scale bleeding of national wealth is being committed by MR's family. I'm referring to people at the top of the professional groups such as senior bankers such as CEOs of leading banks operating in CMB.

Sri Lanka at last has a solid son of the soil in MR, who should know better than to screw the country, could do better than try to nail those who look out for this country's interests so that his family can bleed the nation's wealth, or assume stupidly that with over 60 years of democracy we will fold up and give into his increasingly unacceptable collusion in openly raping our nation. ...(contd..)

TropicalStorm said...

Unfortunatly most of our people are now starting to forget that it was Ranil who escallated the issues between MR and SF to the level of open hostility, and championed the cause of the enemies of our state. I agree with most of you that any disenchantment with MR hasn't got out of hand to the point where they wll need to worry. It hasn't, and in fact Ranil and SF's sheer unacceptability to the majority will drive political survivability higher for the MR clan. At least for another 5 years. And then we will say enough and vote for anyone, blindly. When that moment arrives, Ranil (if still around) will stand a big chance of winning unopposed. Consequences of such a happenng may not be very auspicious for SL...but that's another story.

What we need to bear in mind is where exactly our loyalties should be placed; it must be with our nation.

We backed MR when he acted as a true son of our soil. Now he is violating that trust - surreptiously at first and now with increasing boldness and open lies - purely for the sake of enrishing a few and establishing a powerful dynasty, if not an outright monarchy.

There is no credible opposition to safeguard our nation and the rights of our people. Dissent is dealt with swiftly and brutal efficiency. Yesterday's disenchanted, among the educated in Colombo, are now getting entirely disgusted with what they are witnessing.

Here's something you may not yet know;

The SL Army (especially Sinha Reg) is no longer deployed in any roads the Prez takes. These are guarded by the Navy, SLAF, STF and a few units of loyalists. The royal family feels the entire SLA is now siding with SF.

The govt is taking a sizeable holding of some of the major SL banks such as NDB, DFCC and a couple of others thru SL Insurance Corp. The stakes are in excess of the legally allowed 10% per single owner, but the game seems to be to instal loyal directors in these banks. I can already even guess who some of those will be, and what will be the next set of outcomes...

Not even Premadasa interfered with the Banking sector, knowing that the country's economy was fragile. But here's the world's latest Idi Amin getting into the act...

TropicalStorm said...

Hello Asithri

Note that my comments are not based on how we won the war and/or its immediate aftermath in which we were accused of lesser crimes than the US and the Brits have committed in contemporary wars.

My irritation is completly based on what I am witnessing first hand, yesterday, today, and with a definte sense of certainty, tommorrow.

What frustrates me the most is the fact that old farts such as Ranil are clogging the system and casuing heart attacks to the nation, and yet no one has the balls to take him down. [Obviously the present govt has a vested interest in keeping him there, to neutrlaize the UNP.] I wish him a heart attack, in which the heart attack wins, before the next election.

Sri Lanka has submitted its bid to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the southern coastal city of Hambantota. The Indian Ocean island’s bid, if successful, will mark the first time the games are held in the country.

Boo! To the folks who think it's a waste of time, SL being part of the Commonwealth.

I agree in a way that the Commonwealth "clan" has lost the plot over the past years. It's a foreign jaunt for a few and the High Commisioners to have tea at Buck House and invited to Garden parties.

Tropical Storm,
Thank You
A reasoned and first hand analysis which i believe is shared amongst many Sri Lankans LIVING in Sri Lanka but afraid to share these thoughts openly for want of being branded a "traitor".
It is not clear exactly what threat faces the nation today, but any criticism of the Rajapaksa regime or challenge to its power is seen as a threat to the nation which warrants strong action against the ‘traitors’ who are responsible for it.

Credit is due to MR and his leadership to getting rid of the LTTE menace that has been a terrible burden on the people and the country. He has won the war but has he won the peace? ...thats another story ...another time.

I bet in years to come after his term, MR will be remembered by Lankans for getting rid of Prabakaran, fleecing the country, violated the freedom of expression and rights of Lankan citizens, tyrant in the eyes of IC and who knows a war criminal?

If i may compare Premadasa, he was equally was corrupt( Not to the extent of MR), abused his power locally, HR violations etc
but he made alot of difference to the rural folks,development and did not antoganise the International Community.

Not sure where this SF trial is leading to. The original charges against SF appear to be watered down. (what happened to the coup/treason/murder charges?) Whatever the outcome MR will be seen as the "bad boy" by the nature of events.
MR needs to extricate himself very quickly on the SF issue.

RW is a waste of time and space, i hate to think he could govern by default.

God Bless SL

Has Mahinda Rajapaksa been a traitor to Sri Lanka?

What is the definition of a traitor? A traitor is usually defined as someone who betrays his or her country. But this definition leaves out the question of what, exactly, constitutes betrayal. Recently, the term has been used of journalists and human rights defenders who talk or write about human rights violations and war crimes in Sri Lanka, especially if they are accused of making these allegations to the international community. It was also used of Sarath Fonseka, because he offered to give evidence to an international war crimes tribunal about the last stages of the war against the LTTE.

The argument is that in attempting to defeat a dreaded terrorist organisation, a government needs to have full freedom of action. Therefore, criticising the government for any actions taken in pursuit of that goal amount to treachery, since they assist the dreaded terrorists to get away with their assault on the nation. This argument was used not only during the war against the LTTE, but even after it ended. It is not clear exactly what threat faces the nation today, but any criticism of the Rajapaksa regime or challenge to its power is seen as a threat to the nation which warrants strong action against the ‘traitors’ who are responsible for it.

If we go back approximately twenty years, we see a very similar scenario. The state was fighting the JVP, which was at that time a dreaded terrorist organisation. The government wanted full freedom of action in doing so, and the result was arbitrary arrests and detentions, torture, enforced disappearances, and extra-judicial killings. Anyone who criticised the UNP government and president then in power suffered the same fate as thousands of innocent civilians picked up and killed without any judicial process. Media freedom, human rights and democracy were under lethal attack.

tbc..

Jay said...

continued..

At that time too there were alleged ‘traitors’ who collected evidence of these war crimes, took them to the international community, and campaigned against the government that perpetrated them. One of them was Mahinda Rajapaksa, at that time an opposition politician, who submitted such evidence to the UN Human Rights Commission. He told parliament he was prepared to go to any lengths to defend human rights. He even called on donors to link aid to human rights! Was this a terrible attack on Sri Lanka’s sovereignty? A slimy act of ratting on the rulers who were fighting terrorism?

Mahinda Rajapaksa defended himself most eloquently from such charges. He claimed that he did what he was doing out of love for his country, and many of us sympathised with this claim. We agreed with him that establishing the truth and fighting for justice for innocent victims of state terror was a moral imperative for all of us who loved our country.

Back to the present. Those who support Mahinda Rajapaksa now need to get their story straight. If journalists who expose the truth and human rights defenders who try to get justice for innocent victims of state terror are ‘traitors’, if Sarath Fonseka is a ‘traitor’ for offering to ‘rat’ on his former commander-in-chief on the matter of war crimes, then Mahinda Rajapaksa too is a veteran ‘traitor’, and they should not be supporting him. Conversely, if Mahinda Rajapaksa’s battle for human rights and against war crimes twenty-odd years ago, both within Sri Lanka and in the international community, was an expression of his love for his country, then they must concede that the same love drives journalists and human rights defenders who risk their lives fighting for truth, justice and good governance in our country.

Sarath Fonseka is a special case, since there is good reason to believe that he too has committed war crimes. But that is not the charge on which he has been arrested and for which he is being tried, for the obvious reason that such a trial would unearth evidence of war crimes by his erstwhile bosses too. The baseless accusations hurled against him at the time of his arrest, which had to be dropped because there was no evidence for them, say more about the accusers than about him. Given that he (unlike the president) risked his life to lead his soldiers on the battlefield in the war against the LTTE, and (again unlike the president) sustained serious and permanent injuries inflicted by the LTTE, the charge that he is a ‘traitor’ seems particularly bizarre. Especially if his act of ‘betrayal’ is his offer to do what Mahinda Rajapksa has actually done in the past!

So who are the traitors? Those who fight for truth and justice? Or those who wield unaccountable power and the sycophants who lick their boots? Who are the people who love our country? Those who trample human rights and democracy underfoot? Or those who struggle for the democratic rights and freedoms guaranteed by our constitution? Whatever your definition, at least make sure it is consistent!

Andare,

I can partly see you point. However, Fonseka has taken a U-turn since his glory days by teaming up with top scum of Sri Lanka and stooping down to the levels of making bogus war crime allegations against the soldiers who faithfully executed his own commands. Perhaps, you should read what Defencewire has written about the consequences of Fonseka's current stance. Fonseka appeared to be incapable of distinguishing Sri Lanka and MR. He was a hero but through his own deeds and bad association he became a traitor. I would rather have him sitting behind bars that taking our brave soldiers to a war crimes tribunal. One more thing, Fonseka had his contribution but it was the great team effort of all the forces,diplomats, and the political leadership that finished LTTE. May be you should give some credit to President Rajapakse for providing outstanding leadership and shielding our forces from unsavory foreign elements like Robert Blake (US), Milban (UK), and Kouchner (France).

[Here's something you may not yet know;

The SL Army (especially Sinha Reg) is no longer deployed in any roads the Prez takes. These are guarded by the Navy, SLAF, STF and a few units of loyalists. The royal family feels the entire SLA is now siding with SF.

The govt is taking a sizeable holding of some of the major SL banks such as NDB, DFCC and a couple of others thru SL Insurance Corp. The stakes are in excess of the legally allowed 10% per single owner, but the game seems to be to instal loyal directors in these banks. I can already even guess who some of those will be, and what will be the next set of outcomes...

Not even Premadasa interfered with the Banking sector, knowing that the country's economy was fragile. But here's the world's latest Idi Amin getting into the act...]


Which ones are lies?

Pol Sambol said...

"May be you should give some credit to President Rajapakse for providing outstanding leadership and shielding our forces from unsavory foreign elements like Robert Blake (US), Milban (UK), and Kouchner (France)."

Exactly, MR gave the necessary cover & maximum support for the Military to work without hindrance. Had Gonseka’s new best buddies like Ranil & Blake been successful with their "small things" against the Military as Gonseka called it, Gonseka would have nothing to boost about as the "sole war hero". The war would have stopped, the LTTE would have been saved and our hard earned victory would have been robbed from us. Who would get the blame in such an eventuality? Your can do no wrong "hero" Gonseka? Of Course not. Blame would land right at MRs desk.
The Colombians and their leaders Gonseka joined at the hip with do not have the guts to stand up to those white apes and would have been on hands and kness begging for forgiveness in a heart beat at the expense of the people, nation and our soldiers.

Gonseka sold out the victory & the nation (or tried to) for cheap political aims, vengeance, lust for power, control and wealth all because of his ugly ego and venom filled mouth which MR had tolerated and pampered for 3 years. For this reason he is a traitor and we pour scorn on him.


If MR did the same (and MR still has the potential to do the same) we will pour the same amount of scorn on him.

Andare I believe it was you who earlier said you had "connections" to Gonseka camp. Maybe you should not be blinded by such "closeness" and think about the country.
People need to stop being so short sighted and see the greater implications short sighted selfish actions can have on the nation as a whole.
The majority of Sinhalese do understand this as we saw in the PE.

Groundview questions violence by JHU. However, GV is a very pro-violent, non democratic organization promote dictatorship.

In the world of free expression on the web, deleting someone's posts is the online equivalence of violence and assassinations. Therefore violence against those who promote groundviews should be justified.

Both Sri Lankan defence Blog and Groundviews have either altered or deleted posts against their views - both reflect dictatorship qualities.

For you to copy and paste Groundview post here is IMMORAL if you are person who respect morals (I am not of cause and my writings are the proof). That is how I identify the fellow kind.

Here is a word inspired by true Buddhism:

"Don't believe in the messenger by its image or appeared credibility".

Re: You position

Glad you turned down govt offer. Sorry to say but I still see no such great plans from govt to bring expats and use them for future of SL. Few ideas were published and forums were created, yet I am not sure how much intention is there, and even in that case, how much vision to guide and understanding to back up such a programme. I was criticizing this when MR first invited expats, and I stand by my words even today.

Private sector is what we need to build up. So it if good that you contribute on that. It is much better if expats can bring some investments and entrepreneurship as well. Govt sector is the stage maker, the dance belongs to private sector.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

TropicalStorm;

Re: your criticism on govt

Some of the facts are - as I previously said - agreeable. But I am unable to agree on followings.

1. Wrong to say that MR has changed after May19th victory and all these bad things are happening after victory.

Nop. It has been the same. Similar tight family control was there even during time of war. Most people failed to notice it and were happy that goods were delivered. Most resident Sri Lankans noticed it, disliked it, yet gave into it since the delivered goals were more important. This fact stands today too.

2. Wrong to say that MR is worse than previous rulers.

In previous time, MORE misconduct and state interference happened. Some say "even Premadasa did not do it". But during Premadasa days Soththi Upali was said to have sat in the Police OIC's seat when victims arrived. Paramilitaries killed ppl for no major reason. He celebrated his BD in an utter waste called, Gam-Uda_Fextival, and spent state money contracting friends to build utter worthless things like clock toewers.

We witnessed lot more misconduct in later rulers too. CBK ate lots of state money with no outcome. CBK relatives made the war a profitable business. RW days, Sathosa was destroyed for no reason.

Can you show me worse things under MR?

3. You did not justify your arguments and how you can negate the visible boom in economy, and the infrastructure development. If your argument of a self-concious and little-care-for-public regime is ruling SL, why do they complete these projects with success? There are no projects that failed and left lots of money missing etc. We're so used to such, and not that used to projects that meet the goals before the due completion date like MR did so far.

4. Regardless all the other facts MR is the only leadership left right now. So it is right that people follow it and support it, i.e. making it a symphony instead of a cacophony. It is not perfect but this is the best we have. If ppl start opposing it country will be in chaos.

Before SF dance began I had lots of hopes in him, but now he has proven me wrong all the way. That leaves MR as the only ruler.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

TropicalStorm;

Re: the bad outcome of MR

Some problems may come out due to misconduct of MR times.

1. The trend and the "royal family" attitude may ruin the political culture in SL. A Future ruler may misuse the recipe of MR to use projects purely to feed his family [which MR also does, in my view, at a fine balance]

2. Like RW and the Kolu gang messed the UNP, MR and family may mess SLFP, destroying its chances of leadership in post-rajapakse era.

3. However confident, post-MR Rajapakse days are numbered. We don't see any charisma in the rest. With trend they may win one more PE at most. Since R family fail to realize this, they're likely to get overwhelmed by the public reaction. It will leave either into the hands of RW the traitor, or a shrewd arse like SB may make most out of it. Between SB and RW I choose RW. :)

4. No secondary leadership groomed anyway in either side. Any prominent figure is destroyed or converted.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

TropicalStorm;

Re: Why we support MR

With all these still we support MR, because he is the best alternative. There are more facts for support him.

1. Re-colonization

It is only under MR only that we will be able to do this. With SF betrayal it is proven that everyone else is willing to listen to the western commands and stay out of such. Although MR won't do recolonization, he will not oppose it. And His shrewd actions may even support it indirectly. This is the best we can get.

2. Development.

As I said before you did not touch this topic. Today, in SL, there is a huge rise of infrastructure development. It may not be properly audited, but project goals are always achieved. Not only that, local professionals are used at most hence creating a local industry. I think having a power plant builder company with Basil as Chairman is better than having no such company.

3. The challenge of LTTE is not yet dead. Gota/MR/GOSL stance, [bar the bullshit of its FM aka traveler/boozer] has been firm, right and winning so far. From others, can we have similarly strong administration to combat the remaining phases of non-resident terrorism threat?

4. Regional development

This is why many Colombians are crossed. Hambantota shud mask Colombo and take up the economic control of the country. It is more appropriate to be the economic hub of SL. And it deserves it. Can you think of any other ruler available in the lists who will do such?

Think of planned Mankulam city, as the capital of North. See the way they "devolve" admin powers to Wanni taking from central power of Jaffna. We need these to happen.

Re: I find something odd about you

And I am stunned about few things.

1. With so many big things around, I noticed you are talking about smaller things like Family having a squad around their vehicle or MR wearing the cloak of his postgrad degree/diploma etc. I wonder why?

2. You seem to have fallen to "Colombian crap". I hear it everyday. But I lived with them long enough to know it. I eavesdropped to two such Colombians few days ago. See how idiotic the logic is.

Colombian1: ".... and now this H'tota harbour thing. You know this bugger is making another harbour in the size of Colombo harbour."

C2: "Yea yes"

C1: "So any ship that comes to colombo can get there too. And that place is closer than Colombo to the shipping lines."

C2: "Ammata siri"

C1: "What if ships decide to unload at H'tota instead of colombo. How can the goods be handled that way. All have to be transported by land to colombo. Extra cost on C-O-L."

See how illogical this bullshit is. And C1 sounded as if having some relationship with ports etc, probably working there, from rest of his speech. It is unbelievable the bullshit they spread. There is no cure for them.

3. Why are you expecting MR to be perfection? He’s a SL politician, groomed behind his predecessor. He has come thru the same political paths for 40 years. Why would you expect him to be 100% accurate and always do right thing. We as voters never expected it. We just wanted a better leader than what we had.

4. Why do you guys believe that it is possible to eliminate corruption, provide 100% media freedom, and achieve 100% democracy? You guys talk as if they were there before MR and suddenly Mr has stolen them. I fail to rationalize this.

Good start. This is how the white man in America works. However, politicians there don't have the star power compare to business leaders. See how small Obama looks compared with Gates/Jobs.

I fully support this if we can significantly water down political influence - not going to happen in this lifetime though.

Re: SF arrest

- Most stupid thing the govt did, and now trying its best to make something out of it.

- I am with the same belief as you regarding SF's contribution for ground war planning. But I disagree that it is a reason to worship him day and night. After his election campaign he exhibited how he can be our worst traitor. So it is a 50/50 case.

- I have a feeling that govt arrest of his was same as his suspected imprisoning of govt members had he won. Sheer revenge. I see nothing else in it.

- But that stopped SF from providing witness in war tribunals as he himself openly offered. That aspect I appreciate. Country is bigger than the individual.

- Still I regret that one man who helped us for a trouble free NY is in jail. But it is him who did most nonsense and became a easy puppet of his own enemies to get it.

- He planned to kill/imprison Rajapakses if he won. So the return is fair on him.

- MR/GR are also equal heroes like SF. So I am stunned to see how you can curse some.

- If the disasters of your curse befall on current leadership, pray tell me who will rule SL, and what will its future be?

Sam/Pol/Sujeewa,
I know, you guys love Sri Lanka, as much as I do.
Unfortunetely you are totally hanging on Govt propaganda and believing it as whole truth make you feel better. Everyting was exsagerated during last election election period and now Govt has become a Cat shit on a rock.
If you take everything as truth and doable of what is said in election rallies, you become nothing but a bunch of idiots. This Sri Lanka should be most develop contry in the world now, had those election talks were to be true.
Govt blown up everyting out of propotion and they were successl in creating fear phycio among the majority of population. Sorry to say, some of you also victim of it.

It is not MR's leadership, which did protect the war again LTTE.
Go to pre Mavilaru situation, MR was pathetic ordenary politision, who was hanging on same old tactics.
JVP and JHU lead the patriotic forces and MR could not go against to it, due to the popularity gaining among the sinhala mass. MR was stuck in a web created by those petriotic forces, including the blogs like this and he didnt want to do political suiside, by going against to it.
MR appoints his brother as sec of defence, not becasue of his extra ordinary track records, but to guard his own powers. No doubt it was successful, becase forces had strong linkage via Gota to get necessary things done on time.

My connection to SF,
we both believe in military defeate of LTTE and I respect his as a gentleman from same collage.

His leadership style had made lots of emamies while delivering the end objective. Ask which major General was not shivering, when he was comming to field meetings. he made a Do or Die game for all the top brass and who could not live in the game was harassed(that is his military style, even though some of us do not agree)
Lower ranks wanted to see such a leadership and suddenly, demoralised forces turned in to suisidal force, who did not know go backward.
Cunning MR is all time busy with Elections. Thanks to all petriotic forces, who keep the nod tight, so that bull has little freedom to go out.

WAR Crimes,
WE are bunch of fools, if we think that SF has encourage IC to go for WAR crimes tribunal.
If you remember, just after the NADA, Puli etc, was killed, WAR crimes charges were surfaced. Foreign inteligence agencies has fairly good idea of what has happend.
Those terorist including NADA, PULI etc, definitely should be killed (non Halal), but not giving room for any WAR crime charges.
Imagine the scale and the complexity of the WAR going on. everywhere terrorists among civilians and it was very very tough WAR. Room for WAR crimes were very very high, if our troops were not deadly discipliend to conduct their operations. SF manage to maintatin that untill last moment, before "saima" come to the picture.
If the story is true, that GOTA ordered to kill surendees, he has done a very foolish thing, putting SL ARMY on danger and shame.
Instead, ARMY should have welcome them and blast the vehicle on the way. SF has every reason to be angry, if the story is true.
Just look at what is going in the world. even after ten twenty years, WAR crimes investigation going on in some countries. MR or Gota is not in the power after 6years may be, so what can be the situation?. SF doesnt have to do anything, there are IC, who want to know, what has happened in the laqst week of the WAR.

We all want death to terrorist, but without putting our Forces in unnecessary danger.

In hating/opposing the govt you seem to have 100% believing every rumor in the opposition camp and every half info that sources like Lanka E News, Lanka Truth etc cooked up. Note that blind belief can happen in both sides of the line.

I am not a blind believer of the govt propaganda. If you read previous posts you can see where I deviate from standard GOSL opinion and where I think it is crap and nonsense. I see similar crap and nonsense in SF camp too.

Let me state few.

- SF was the sole war winner. Rest did nothing

- MR leadership did not contribute for victory

- SF was not prepared to witness in war tribunal, despite his repeated literal expressing of the same [well it is a surprise, but i am compelled to believe it when man has repeatedly said it]

- SF won war and that is more than enough to lead SL.

- SF's campaign was really futuristic and pro-Sri Lankan, not hatred and revenge based

I saw all the happenings in real and compelled to say each of above is wrong impression.

There are more such. It is a tired list of debate points that you repeat here. During PE we debated these. During PE most debated about their imagination. Some left it now, but you seem to still cling onto it. I don't see much worth in repeatedly debating about each other's imagination.


I do not take sides. I support MR's govt for its solid leadership, development and stern and unchanged stand point on terrorism. It has defects like corruption, nepotism, inability in many areas, greedy ppl, etc etc. Also I see SF arrest as a revenge although SF meant lots of evil for Mr/GR and SL.

I still think that SF did a great part in winning war and he was a damn good patriot then. Yet as at today he is a self-conscious, angry man who'd betray anything to take his revenge, including the small island of his motherland.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

Andare;

Small point needs elaboration.

[[If the story is true, that GOTA ordered to kill surendees, he has done a very foolish thing, putting SL ARMY on danger and shame.]]

If the story is true, Gota has done a great thing. It is not possible to avoid such acts in pragmatic war. Theory books may differ.

Had he not ordered as alleged, what would be the end result. Do you think Muthubandas et al of SLDF has that courage to shoot at them. If such need arised [which I dunno] you need that responsible order from top for them to act freely. Like to remind you that your hero was site seeing at that moment in China.

What we need is the secrecy. It is this kinda difference in terror warfare that world needs to rethink on the conventions and definitions instead of beating every small nation on such. All big nations have much bigger skeletons in their wardrobes, but secrecy is assured.

In a place like US, SF would have been bumped off somewhere around August etc, before the big ha-ho made into big scene. They anticipate betrayal and destroy its chances, and of course give a state honored funeral. I didn't mean it is right, but it is just how many other countries work.

It is this kinda situ what makes the high ranks retain their secrets and not reveal them even when they compete in opposite sides.

Nobody else raised white flag case before. West was sniffing, but w/o any clue. It was SF himself "revealed" it. Sorry mate your argument here is a whole lot of crappy justification for obvious betrayal.

what you are saying is totally illogic.

Not only muthubanda, all other bandas had the freedom to kill terorists and that environment was created and encouraged. If you are trying say that, everything had happened in the WAR, during SF's China visit. it is bullshit man.
Problem is you are suffering from "silumina" syndrome and trying to undermine, everything done by the SF.
No doubt, SF is one of my gretest hero, since he is the guy, who bring the real change to military machinery.

The whole issue is what should we do when Terrorists surrender.

I think no matter how assholes they are, when they surrender the law of the nation should be applicable to them.

It is like a dad can't kill the rapist who raped his daughter and expect to be exonerated for manslaughter.

A nation's greatness is defined by its ability to stick to the morals, law and discipline, not just by the economic growth.

It is foolish for so called educated people to take sides of SF or MR/GR since they run the world the way they want.

These are selfish people who are interested in building themselves first then others.

That is because they are insecure leaders. The secure leaders are passionate about people and it shows. One of the best example has been Jimmie Carter. I can't think of a recent SL leader fit in to that criteria.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

[[It was a well planned counter insurgency operation spanned with in 3 years.

Killing terra is onething. Leadership is another. In numerous previous operations, the leadership got caught but teh bottom waited till top responded with teh right commands, and some times top went as high as the exe prez and it was either too late a response, or too lame a decision.

And now you just said "all other bandas had the freedom to kill terorists and that environment was created and encouraged". So you think anyone of pussycat leadership carrying a white flag could have been randomly killed w/o referring to top? IO suppose the bottom would again have waited for top to decide, had it not being clear. Again I do not know whether this event even happened OK? My argument is based on the imaginary possibility of it.

But if it is true, Gota has done the very right thing. A slight mistake or delay would have been enough for such schemers to get in touch with their IC counterparts and survive for a latter day.


[[ If you are trying say that, everything had happened in the WAR, during SF's China visit. it is bullshit man.]]

No I did not. Read my response well. Previous ones too. Did I not agree that it was SF, in my view, who did the ground war planning?


[[Problem is you are suffering from "silumina" syndrome and trying to undermine, everything done by the SF]]

I did not undermine him. I gave him due respect.

But I do not undermine both good and bad of his. The harm he tried is also hard to undermine.

You call me Silumina syndrome. I dont even rem when I read that paper [or viewed govt TV last time]. However I did appreciate SF as a planner and leader. You do not agree that others did anything worthy in war. You think it was all done by SF. Still you call me that I am one-sided. Come on.


[[No doubt, SF is one of my gretest hero, since he is the guy, who bring the real change to military machinery]]

Fully agree. To my knowledge too. Him as commander was my hero too. But him as a politician ruined it and turned a traitor.

I am with the impression that wartime glorification of his has blinded you and you cannot see anything wrong in any of his acts. You run the extra mile with your imagination to justify him. You can coin it SF-syndrome if you like. There are quite a few like you.

This is not about blind belief and worshiping idols. Today's hero can turn to a traitor tomorrow. And that is the human nature.

[[Just read below article from Asiantribune to understand, when was the whiteflag issue first time surfaced,
http://www.asiantribune.com/?q=node/17864]]

We haven't also forgotten what happened.

Many tried pin-pointing the white flag claims. Many failed to find a clue. I really dunno whether it happened but surely it was buzzed from the days of victory. What they lacked was a good witness.

Finally some even pointed finger at Palitha Kohona as the responsible officer. It was rather comic, and that was just the position these white flag allegation stayed.

Then the former Army Commander of SL who sat side by side with Def Sec, and said that not only it did happen but also it was Gota who did it. And he is willing to witness in any tribunal. Imagine the difference it can make.


[[Guys, I have no intention of putting anybody in trouble. But what is done by Govt to SF is totally totally unacceptable and disgusting.]]

What govt did was cheap. No arguments. It looks more like revenge to me. But what SF did also [white flag story] was not good either.

If I look from here on, there cannot be any good that govt can yield out of SF case, which ever the way they end it. However, there is no such political future that SF can find in SL politics. He'll be yet another whiner unlimited.

There is no doubt, those big shots in the LTTE should be killed either after surender or in the bsttle field.
But the method should be as like just another ordenary blast or counter attack, while moving or some other method, without putting SL Forces in unnecessary danger.

So even that has to be planned. And to my knowledge Gota has not issued a public notice in a press conf. Had he ever issued any, it was a secret message only known to few in top brass. It is the responsibility of such top brass to protect teh secrets no matter which political opinion they hold.

Asithri said...

Andare

No question SF was a hero and he organized the SLA to be an efficient killing machine (but so did the other Commanders of the other respective forces), but sadly he blew it all away with what happened post-war. Here are the key points in as far as I am concerned why he went from Hero to Zero:

1) SEVERE GREED FOR POWER

He got a severe greedy for power in the post-war. Closely connected to this was his thinking “I did it all by myself.” He forgot that he was NOT an elected executive of the nation and that what he achieved was impossible without the executive authority of the nation saying “yes” to his requests AND very loyally covering up for him in his bad lapses that were very costly to Sri Lanka (such as stupidly saying to a Canadian journalist that “this country belongs to the Sinhalese!) during the lead up to the final phase of this 30 year war. So, in his greed for power, and by “power” he wanted “total executive power” and as that was not possible within the incumbent GOSL with MR going to recontest for Presidency, he converted himself from FONSEKA to GONSEKA and went and jointed the pro-Tamil separatist Opposition!

2) ALIGNING WITH PRO-EELAM ENTITIES AND SAYING “WE NEED TO GO BEYOND 13th AMENDMENT”

Yes, he then got into a secret agreement with the LTTE’s TNA and started uttering “we now must go BEYOND the 13th Amendment to address Tamil grievances”…!!! Yes, that’s how power hungry this misguided man had become! Never mind that over 30,000 brave men/women had given their lives to stop that very threat – of creating a racist, Tamils-only super province merging N&E (and that was only the “basic” 13th Amendment!), but here we had Gonseka now saying he was essentially going to undo all what was gained on the battlefield – as long as he could become the President!!!

3) “GOTA ORDERED LTTE WHITE-FLAG BEARING PRISONERS TO BE SHOT”

When things started going sour for him, that is when he started realizing that his “war hero” tag alone would not compel people to make him the President, especially after he had shown what an opportunistic traitorous scum he had become when he said 13A+ (above point) and had conducted himself on election platform with crude, not-the-language-of-President utterances, he went berserk and making these wild accusations against Gota, Shavendra, etc. hoping that will damage the image of MR and still give him a last-minute chance of getting elected. He was totally power-bent and could not care a flying-fuck about what these statements did to the nation as a whole.

After his utterance it was not surprising to see the US, EU, UN, etc. coming at SL with guns blazing to carry out “war crimes” investigations!

To sum it up, SF is the architect of his downfall and misery. Having being in a position where his tactical decisions saw thousands upon thousands of our brave men die to preserve SL’s unitary character, what he did post-war to threaten that very same cherished ideal was UNFORGIVABLE and there are no “if’s and buts” about this as far as I am concerned.

What you need to understand is that this is not about party politics BUT about SL’s survival as a one-nation. LTTE may be dead on the field, but they are very active everywhere else. Sadly, GONSEKA became a pawn of their vile designs and for that he must take accountability and be punished “with extreme prejudice.”

Man, truly sad to see how you have turned yourself to be a misguided poor sod who is now missing the woods for a few trees!

[SF is mere "Pambaya" and all the others has done the assesments, planing, executing everyting]

Herein lies the key down-fall point.

In the post-war celebrations, awards, public utterances, etc. nowhere did I see MR GOSL leaving out SF's name.

All such was done in the spirit of what it was really, that it was a "collective effort" and "WE beat them LTTE terrorists."

However, it was Gonseka who started going around saying "if not for me, this war would have been lost" "I am the reason why we won this war" types of statements.

At that time I used to think it was maybe a minor flaw in the man's character, but now I see why he did that.

Yes, he made such utterances as he was power hungry and not having a political record to present to the masses to say why they should elect him as the President, he grabbed at the collective military success and naturally wanted to affix it to himself as that was his ONLY qualification.

So let's be reasonable and call a spade a spade and not utter fucking unreasonable cockamamie nonsense here shall we?

Surely, DW can have a minimum-logic standard in this forum whereby when someone such as this undercover LTTE whore-bitch talks nonsense upon nonsense (which I see for the most of this thread), the scum can be removed?

I am not asking that LTTE whores be banned (yes, we need our entertainment), but only that one that talks and talks jibberish the way this whore does, be banned as in my view they are just sabotuers of the forum.

The Erosion of State Sovereignty
- a response to Dr Dayan Jayatilleke
by Nihal Jayawickrama


My friend, Dr. Dayan Jayatilleke, whom I have known for over a quarter of a century, has rushed to challenge my assertion that the doctrine of state sovereignty, in so far as it relates to the treatment by a state of its own nationals, had been significantly eroded in the past fifty years (The Island, April 1, 2010). In so doing, he has demonstrated the futility of seeking to demolish a legal proposition by the application of political theory. I did not argue that "the state is a myth". Nor did I claim that sovereignty is no longer an inalienable attribute of a state. What I submitted, in my article published last Sunday, was what I believe to be a universally accepted legal proposition, namely, that the emergence of international human rights law has resulted in a government’s treatment of its own nationals becoming the legitimate concern of the international community. It has also resulted in the individual becoming a subject of international law.


Sovereignty not immutable

Since the 1648 Treaty of Westphalia that ended the Thirty Years War in Europe, sovereignty has been regarded as being inherent in the state from the moment of its creation. In the exercise of that sovereignty, a state makes and enforces its laws, enters into political and economic relations with other states, and maintains an army to defend its territorial integrity. But sovereignty is not immutable; it does not remain constant. It varies in response to the state’s involvement in international relations and the degree to which it has contracted international obligations. The Charter of the United Nations was the first multilateral treaty in the history of international relations to establish a body of principles and norms of international law that are regarded as being "erga omnes" in character. It means that the UN Charter contains obligations that are owed by a state towards the community of states as a whole. It also means that any state has the right to complain of a breach of any such obligation by another state.


An international obligation

This was made clear by the International Court of Justice in 1970 in a case between Belgium and Spain, the Barcelona Traction Case. The ICJ stated that an essential distinction should be drawn between the obligations of a state towards the international community as a whole, and those arising vis-à-vis another state. It added that: "By their very nature, the former are the concern of all states. In view of the importance of the rights involved, all states can be held to have a legal interest in their protection; they are obligations erga omnes". The Court explained that: "Such obligations derive, for example, in contemporary international law, from the outlawing of acts of aggression, and of genocide, as also from the principles and rules concerning the basic rights of the human person". In regard to the latter, the ICJ confirmed in another case that: "Wrongfully to deprive human beings of their freedom and to subject them to physical constraint in conditions of hardship is in itself manifestly incompatible with the principles of the Charter of the United Nations, as well as with the fundamental principles enunciated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights".

Impact of human rights treaties

In respect of the protection of human rights, the world has progressed beyond the UN Charter. With each step forward, the doctrine of state sovereignty has been eroded. But that erosion was the result of sovereign states, in the exercise of their sovereignty, agreeing not only to respect and safeguard human rights within their own territories, but also to be accountable to, and to submit to scrutiny by, each other and the international community in respect of the performance of that obligation. For example, under seven international treaties, states have agreed to report to monitoring bodies that have been established and to appear before them and defend those reports. They are the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families. In fact, the monitoring body under the last of these treaties was chaired for several years by our own Ambassador Prasad Kariyawasam with dignity, competence and acceptance.

Under five of these treaties, states have recognized the right of the monitoring bodies to receive complaints from individuals of the infringement of their rights. Under two of these treaties, the monitoring bodies are empowered not only to investigate violations of the relevant rights, but also to visit the territories for that purpose. Indeed, the Sub-Committee on Prevention established under the Optional Protocol to the Torture Convention has the right to visit any place under the jurisdiction and control of a state where persons are or may be deprived of their liberty. The international tribunals that have been established since 1993 for the prosecution of persons responsible for the crime of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and serious violations of international humanitarian law, demonstrate that states have voluntarily limited their sovereignty over a whole series of criminal jurisdiction issues which formerly lay within their domestic competence. There has also been a growing recognition of the lawfulness of bringing criminal proceedings in national courts against senior officials of foreign states on charges of massive and gross violations of human rights. This was evidenced in Europe in the case of the former Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet. Therefore, as Professor J. G. Starke has observed, state sovereignty now means the residuum of power which a state possesses within the confines laid down by international law.


The Sri Lanka resolution

Dr. Jayatilleke has referred to the resolution on Sri Lanka that he so adroitly and with tremendous diplomatic skill steered through the UN Human Rights Council in May last year. At first, with due respect to him, I thought it constituted an aberration. However, on closer scrutiny of the text, and when stripped of the spin that was attached to it for domestic consumption, there is nothing in that resolution that contradicts what I have stated above. Indeed, the resolution itself is titled: "Assistance to Sri Lanka in the promotion and protection of human rights". It reaffirms "the obligation of states to respect human rights law and international humanitarian law while countering terrorism", and welcomes the commitment of Sri Lanka "to uphold its human rights obligations and the norms of international human rights law".

Dr. Jayatilleke has also referred to certain events that allegedly occurred during the 1970-1977 administration of Mrs. Bandaranaike. Since they do not appear to be relevant to the subject under discussion, I will reserve my comments on them for a future, more appropriate, occasion. Suffice it to state that the defence of state sovereignty was never raised in that period in respect of any human rights issue. Nor, I believe, did either President Jayewardene or President Kumaratunge. In fact, it was the former who ratified the international human rights Covenants, and the latter who acceded to the Optional Protocol. In 1989, I attended the sessions of the UN Sub-Commission on Human Rights in Geneva, together with colleagues from Hong Kong and a Chinese student leader, and successfully secured the first UN resolution on human rights in China, requiring the secretary-general to report on the events that had occurred in Tiananmen Square. Also in Geneva at the time were the then Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse and Mr Vasudeva Nanayakkara. Their advocacy on behalf of the Mothers of the South succeeded in securing country visits from UN special rapporteurs to investigate and report on the horrendous executions and disappearances of that era. The future President clearly had an abiding belief in the system of international oversight.


The Supreme Court judgment

Who then was responsible for introducing the doctrine of state sovereignty into Sri Lankan political discourse? I suspect it was the former chief justice. Confronted by several decisions of the UN Human Rights Committee that found his judgments to have violated the provisions of the Civil and Political Rights Covenant, especially in respect of the prohibition of arbitrary detention, Chief Justice Sarath Silva (with Justices Jayasinghe, Udalagama, Dissanayake and Amaratunge agreeing) delivered a bizarre judgment in which he held that accession to the Optional Protocol which recognized the right of individuals to complain to that Committee was unconstitutional because it infringed the sovereignty of the people of Sri Lanka. It was difficult to comprehend how the grant to the people of the right of access to an international tribunal when their human rights were allegedly violated by their own government could possibly have infringed the people’s "sovereignty". The confusion that this judgment created at the time was evident from the reported query by the JVP whether Sri Lanka had "benefited by being a party to human rights treaties". It was only a matter of time before "sovereignty" entered the political jargon and, in the context of a brutal civil war, became the defensive weapon of the establishment against international censure.

Dr. Jayatilleke has referred to his book on "Fidel’s Ethics", and to the writings and speeches of Lakshman Kadirgamar. In fact, one piece of writing by the latter that I particularly enjoyed reading was that which he wrote on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of Mr. H. L. de Silva’s admission to the Bar. It was an eloquent and nostalgic journey into the halcyon days of the judiciary and the legal profession. On a more serious and relevant note, I prefer to rely on authors such as H. Lauterpacht and on the jurisprudence of international courts for my knowledge of international law. May I perhaps recommend to Dr. Jayatilleke my own book on "The Judicial Application of Human Rights Law: International, Regional and National Juirsprudence". The publisher, Cambridge University Press, has described it as "the definitive compendium on international human rights law". In it I discuss, quite extensively, the issues of state sovereignty and human rights. Lest I be misunderstood, let me hasten to add that I am not promoting my book; I understand from the publisher that the first edition is out of stock!

Focus on our shortcomings

At the end of the day, it does no credit to this country or to its citizens to continue to use abusive language against international institutions and foreign governments and their personnel who exercise their right to highlight our failure to fulfil our treaty obligations. They will be silenced only if we remedy our own shortcomings. The list is alarmingly long. It ranges from summary executions, abductions, disappearances, and arbitrary detentions to corruption, impunity and lack of accountability. It includes the non-recognition of the rights of minorities and the repression of political opposition and dissent; the lack of independence and integrity in the judiciary and the lack of impartiality in the public service; the persecution of civil society and the growing intolerance of religious beliefs other than one’s own. All these have a profound deleterious effect on the enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms. If we begin to address these issues now, seriously and with commitment, the international searchlight will surely cease to be focused on us.

Parrot Pakis Pundey Andei,

Enga poray? So you want things in English and you can't understand the common Sri Lankan man's language?. Why don't you bend over little Pundey Andei. Keep in mind you little scummy, in Sri Lanka Sinhala is the main language. So my little monkey, other than your terrorist language, make sure to learn Sinhala also. Otherwise, you are a person-non-grata is Sri Lanka.

I see, for some ill-bred, ill-cultured racist-separatist Colombian kook+gook who has a hiccup problem, the slightest ‘down news” about Sri Lanka, or even a healthy debate amongst any Sri Lankans, is cause to go into an orgasm as the poor gook then starts to think this is beginning of the end of Sri Lanka and then soon his racist-separatist “thamileelam” can be ushered in!

This clearly shows the pathetic state to which these uncultured Colombian eelam-gooks have fallen into!…reminds me of a dog we once had in SL where the dog would start yelping at the slightest sound of pots/pans/dishes clanking in the kitchen as the poor bugger thought it was the householders’ meal time (because then we as children would secretly feed the bugger under the table)…

ha ha ha…except our dog unlike this dog here didn’t have a hiccup problem.

LMSSAO!!! Truly LMSSAO!!!

Sam,

I personally do not beleive that Sinhala should be compulsary for anyone born in the island (they themselves would realise it is handy though)..

But you probably spoke in a different context though..The dole bludger parrot, who comes here claiming to be Sinhalese and insulting his own kind, IS NON OTHER THAN A POOLA-CAPPI OF EELAM AKA KAZUTHANADU..

Granted he understands a few words...But he avoids drawn out conversations with desha, barring cut and pastes..And the poor dole-bludger got caught in our sting..

Agree in general. The Parrot Scummy is asking us to talk to him in English. He wants to talk about Sri Lanka but he can't understand the major language in Sri Lanka. (believe it or not, R. Sampandan can speak Sinhala very well). My point here is that if these jokers are thinking too highly of their political talent, they shall at least understand the common mans language.
