Why Navi Pillai Has Truly Overstepped Her Metes And Bounds To Become An Abomination In Sri Lankan Matters.

LankaWeb Weekly Editorial,
The UN Human Rights Chief Navinethem PillayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s assertion that “if certain concerns are not comprehensively addressed, she believes the international community will have a duty to establish its own inquiry mechanisms” has come under fire from Sri LankaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva Ravinatha AryasinhaÃ‚Â who has strongly repudiatedÃ‚Â her claim as broadcastÃ‚Â on many world news sources as well as Sri Lanka News whereÃ‚Â he hasÃ‚Â pointed out that she has no mandate to make such a claim.
Furthermore it has veritably been pointed out in response to Ms PillayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s remarks, by theÃ‚Â Sri Lankan Permanent Rep Ã‚Â in Geneva Ã‚Â Mr AryasinhaÃ‚Â that quoteÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“having brought normalcy to the lives of the civilian population, the Government Of Sri Lanka has also taken positive steps to address issues of accountability. The GOSL strongly repudiates the High CommissionerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s assertion that if certain concerns are not comprehensively addressedÃ‚Â although she believes Ã¢â‚¬Ëœthe international community will have a duty to establish its own inquiry mechanismsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.” end quote which of course is an unsubstantiable threat given all the related facts where if Sri Lanka was truly and provablty culpable of her accusations by now there would be an inquiry heralded by the International Tribunal at the Hague which there isntÃ‚Â and on which basis she should really put a sock on her accusations!!.
The main reason why the seemingly agitated Ms.Pillai, coerced to the hilt by those who champion her in Tamil Nadu, the Tamil global diaspora in quest of a recussitation of the so called Tamil struggle for independence as well as the Tamil national Alliance~formerly and to all intents and purposes still are Tamil Tiger props andÃ‚Â has no mandate to make such a claim, is that all her agitations despite using all the clout she has as UN Rep. she has no tangible proof beyond the deliberately orchestrated lies and innuendo lacedÃ‚Â sympathy videos et alÃ‚Â rejected by experts but amazingly she never gives up.
However as there was a conflagaration which claimed many lives applicable to both sides of the conflict there have been grievances presented to her from the Tamil community alleging inhuman and ruthless actions by the Armed Forces which is a reversible reaction perhaps as the attrocities of the Tamil Tigers by far exceeded the accusations pitted against the Forces which even the resigned Tamil community toeing the line of the GOSL today will admit to as part ofÃ‚Â the unfortunate events contributing to the insurgency despite which life must go on which is visibly portrayed to those who care to focus accurately.
It may of interest to note that no such grievances despite a crying need for them was ever presented to her by the Sinhala and other ethnicities affected by the conflict where they too suffered huge casualties~ case in point!
It is this continuity of life in a developing Sri Lanka that HC Pillai has attempted to disrupt whether inadvertently or notÃ‚Â and in this sense becomes a very contentious individual who should rescind her accusations against Sri Lanka and acknowledge the common good for all citizens brought on by the present Administration while condoning it rather than criticising it.
Little does she realise that despite her high office in the UN and some feathers in her cap in the past where she has succesfully and objectively resolved rights issues, this time around relative to Sri Lanka, her transparencies as a biased and obnoxious campaigner stick out and are very visible to the discerning eyeÃ‚Â that here is someone who has taken up a very impure cause in hounding Sri Lanka that has made every effort to resolve the Tamil issue yet only comes under fire from the sources named who are impediments and adversaries of Sri Lanka despite the huge inroads made into eliminating major national issues for the common good of all citizens.
Of course internally too there are those deadbeat opposition politicians often squabbling amongst themselves who take it upon themselves alsoÃ‚Â to post huge impediments towards this progress at every given opportinity simply towards their own agendas motivated by the hunger for power which has now eluded them for a very long time and will probably stay that way for even longer if the trend continues.
On behalf of the SL Government, Geneva’s Permanent Rep Mr.Aryasinha in a very appreciable mannerÃ‚Â has concluded that quote Ã‚Â “Multiple mechanisms to address accountability have been put in place and are in motion as a continuous progression from the LLRC process.The Sri Lankan Government strongly refutes the HCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s view that the human rights situation in Sri Lanka remains critically important. As pointed out many times in this Council by my delegation, the disproportionate attention paid to Sri Lanka, largely at the behest of parties with vested interests, considerably complicates the on-going delicate process of reconciliation. Sri Lanka is not a situation that requires the urgent and immediate attention of the Council. Sri Lanka needs to be encouraged, not impeded,Ã‚Â The GOSL strongly refutes the UNHRC HCÃ‚Â PillaiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s view that the human rights situation in Sri Lanka remains critically important. As pointed out many times in this Council by my delegation, the disproportionate attention paid to Sri Lanka, largely at the behest of parties with vested interests, considerably complicates the on-going delicate process of reconciliation.

It is an endorsement towards the fact that Navi Pillai hasÃ‚Â indeed overstepped her metes and bounds to become an abomination in Sri Lankan matters where there must surely be issues of far greater importance globallyÃ‚Â which sheÃ‚Â should focus her attentions on with of course the fervent hope she would not further compund them which she seems to be making a habit of !
