UNHRC chief Navi Pillay”‘s request to pay a floral tribute during her recent visit to the North had been rejected by the Government.

Informed sources said that Pillay had initially informed of her desire to offer a floral tribute to the late LTTE terrorist leader Velupillai Prabhakaran at a location in the North. However, the Government had turned down Pillay”‘s request.

Pillay”‘s controversial behaviour would prove that she had arrived in Sri Lanka on a specific mission with presumptions. Though she had declared that she was coming to Sri Lanka with an open mind at the time of her arrival, she had made several controversial moves and statements. “…”It is crystal clear that she was here to put her agenda in motion,”‚ a political analyst said after her controversial news conference in Colombo yesterday. Media and Information Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said the visiting UN Human Rights High Commissioner”‘s statement on Sri Lanka becoming an authoritarian state leads to a reasonable doubt that there is a different agenda behind her visit, since all tools of a democratic government are currently in place.

“…”There is a stable government at present with a legal system in place backed by a proper law enforcing mechanism. Elections are held in keeping with the constitution and there had not been serious allegations made against them. And after thirty years elections are now being held in the North which is a healthy sign of a democratic country,”‚ the Minister said.

“…”Therefore we have a reasonable doubt that Navanetham Pillay had a different agenda since none of the factors of democracy had been violated in Sri Lanka,”‚ Minister Rambukwella added.

He further said that the principles of the constitution have been adhered to and the rights of people ensured.

Pillay deviated from her provided schedule last week, much to the surprise of the special security personnel assigned to her by the Government. Deviating from her official schedule, Pillay met a prominent Christian priest in the Trincomalee district.

Discussions between her and the priest had lasted for nearly an hour after which she had left for Colombo. The UN Mission in Colombo is reportedly had arranged a meeting between Pillay and Rev. Fr. Y. Yogeshwaran, a prominent human rights activist of a non-governmental organisation named Jesuits Academy-Foundation for Nonviolent Communication, located at Inner Harbour Road, Trincomalee. The TNA too had played a similar role by handing over the same report, which Fr. Yogeshwaran had handed over to Pillay.

    Why did the govt. trust a Tamil?

    NEVER trust a Tamil UNLESS he has PROVEN he is against Tamil homolands.

    Well we asked fo this so no surprise here! – despite the objections she was invited by GoSL on the basis that “we had nothing to hide”. True but however honest that view is, that view ONLY applies to an UNBIASED, judge and NOT to to a prejudiced Tamil woman like Pillai. Remember this is a situation created by our own incompetency! Pillai should not have been permitted to investigate SL just like a Muslim would not be nominated by the UN to investigate Israel!. I am NOT saying here that the UN should not investigate SL. Far from that. What I am saying here though is that the GoSL should have objected to this PREJUDICED woman Pillai and sought a UN substitute acceptable to SL as a NEUTRAL person. Also, If she wanted to be seen as an impartial judge, she should have declined herself to hear the case due to the obvious ‘conflict of interests’ as any honest judge would’ and ensured the UN appointed someone else. I am sad that our Foreign Office incompetent monkeys just cannot handle anything properly and the only hope is that the vital issues highlighted in these columns and elsewhere by many will be formally taken up by the GoSL by NOW as matter of urgency and prepare itself to REJECT her conclusions before the UN on the basis of her ‘CONFLICT OF INTERESTS’ – S de Silva – London

    Clearly this woman came with many ulterior motives behind. Strangely she had gone to the infamous former CJ but refused to see the failed contestant for the presidency. With shed loads of money continuing to flow in massive proportions to the overseas LTTE in its many guises, in addition to the her own ethic bias and the dictates of the owners of the UN, she sees many private advantages in castigating the government of the country. She is not going to suffer the consequences of another Eelam war if the armed forces are weak and under the control of a local Chief Minister in the North and the East.

    I did not doubt the iniquity and injustice that would come from this woman.
