Dear Mr. Obhrai,

Misplaced theatrics to display Canada-â„¢s politically motivated concerns for victims in North Sri Lanka

Your pre-CHOGM rush to Jaffna and placing of a wreath of all places at Elephant Pass leaves room to doubt your real intentions, as Canada had already announced the boycotting of the summit by the Prime Minister and prior attempts to seek to deny Sri Lanka this opportunity to host the meeting already granted by the Commonwealth.‚  Considering Canada-â„¢s campaign against Sri Lanka, it is clear that your intention was to assuage both the Tamils in Sri Lanka and especially the Canadian Tamils who funded the three decade long separatist insurgency, whose votes could possibly help to secure a few ridings in the Toronto area for the Conservative Party.

You have confirmed the suspicions relating to your politically motivated -Ëœwreath of hypocrisy-â„¢ in your statement to the Canadian Press quoted below:

http://www.ipolitics.ca/2013/11/17/tory-mp-deepak-obhrai-says-sri-lankan-tamils-remain-fearful/

-Obhrai says he was sent to Sri Lanka to keep the country-â„¢s human rights record front and centre, which involved laying a wreath for all of its innocent civilian victims in the mainly Tamil north.-

If Canada-â„¢s concerns were genuine, you could have laid a wreath at a more central location in the presence of the public instead of picking a desolate place such as Elephant Pass hidden from the public eye. Canada-â„¢s call for an independent international inquiry into human rights violations in the last 138 days of military action against the Tamil Tiger terrorists in a 32 year terrorist insurgency based on unsubstantiated allegations and doctored photos is an attempt to tarnish Sri Lanka-â„¢s image and punish her while absolving the LTTE leadership which was eliminated in battle. A more fitting gesture would have been to have acknowledged not only Canada-â„¢s failure to stop the flow of funds to the Tamil Tiger terrorist killing machine over a considerable period of time, but even the patronizing role played by the Canadian political establishment towards the pro-Tiger lobby for a handful of tainted votes.

The build up of false propaganda to frame Sri Lanka for war crimes and violations of International Humanitarian Law was lead by Britain-â„¢s Channel 4 News with their much hyped video titled -ËœKilling Fields of Sri Lanka-â„¢ screened around the world, which shows gruesome scenes of extra-judicial killings of partly naked men with hands tied behind their back who were shot at point blank range. ‚ The numerous aspects which show that it has been tampered with to incriminate Sri Lanka has been raised by Mr. Siri Hewavitharana of Australia who is an internationally recognized video technology

expert pointing out that it has been digitally altered with more than one video layer. He has disputed the use of a mobile phone to film, queries the subsequently dubbed voice recording with Sinhala words and 17 frames which were not synchronized, discrepancy of the sound of the gunshot and the distance away from the subject, inscribed date of July 15, 2009 (UTC 2009-07-15 13:17:23) on the film which fell after the conclusion of the military action, etc. No satisfactory answers have been forthcoming from Channel 4 News or other rights groups such as AI, HRW, ICG and UNHRC who relied on it to criticize Sri Lanka and bring up war crimes allegations. Also, Channel 4 has failed to submit a copy of the original video for scrutiny which has been doctored for mounting a bogus campaign against Sri Lanka. None of the victims or perpetrators have been identified or the location been specified.

Mr. Siri Hewavitharana of Australia, who is one of the world’s leading experts on digital video systems and former head of Cisco’s Global Broadcast and Digital Video Practice division. Mr. Hewavitharana is presently the Executive Director of IPTV Systems in Sydney, Australia.

It has also been established that the Tamil Tiger terror organization had links to Channel 4 News as its editor and presenter named Shirani Sabaratnam a former member of the same terror outfit and a niece of its infamous leader Velupillai Prabakaran was married to Stuart Cosgrove, a director of this News Channel. They had visited Sri Lanka both before and during the hostilities to make video documentaries critical of the Government of Sri Lanka. She had travelled to Sri Lanka using different passports to visit the north of the country when she was detained at the airport and deported to the UK per Colombo Telegraph News and Daily Mirror of June 5, 2012. Mr. Cosgrove as the spouse of a Tamil had voted for establishing a separate Tamil state in Sri Lanka at an election held to select a Trans-National Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) in exile.

The original video where Tamil words were spoken was discovered in a pro-LTTE website called‚  www.pulligal.blogsite.com as far back as November 2008 since deleted, but fortunately saved by others for future reference.‚  It was common knowledge that Tamil Tiger cadres masqueraded as Sri Lanka Army soldiers dressed in army uniforms when they carried out atrocities to be used for propaganda and fundraising within the diaspora, whilst falsely blaming the Sri Lankan authorities for such crimes. ‚ The original video where the perpetrators spoke Tamil words that matched the actions could be accessed at the following link: i.e. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaMqKJIl6VE .

A.A. Gill writing in the Sunday Times of the UK about the same video commented as follows:

-The channel has accumulated a large collection of samizdat amateur footage from mobile phones and video cameras – mostly un-attributed and uncorroborated. It mixes this footage with comment from unnamed sources with distorted voices and shadowed faces and human rights lawyers. It was brutal, it was shocking, but it wasn’t journalism.‚ Not a second of this has been shot by Channel 4; none of the eyewitness accounts comes from journalists.-

Even the so called experts retained by Phillip Alston and Christof Heyns, both UN Special Rapporteurs ‚ on Extra-Judicial Killings, have been found to be non-experts by Mr. Siri Hewavitharana.‚  The background of these experts hired by the UN officials has been analyzed by a San Francisco journalist named Hassina Leelaratne who has stated that their conclusions were tantamount to a -Ëœforensic hoax-â„¢. Her well researched article could be accessed at the following website, i.e. http://srilankausa.weebly.com/un–forensics-hoax.html.

Based on the undisputed facts presented above, it is time Canada, UK, UNHRC, the rights groups such as AI, HRW, ICG and other critics look at the evidence with an unbiased frame of mind and call a halt to their fictitious campaign of so called -credible allegations- of serious wrongdoings by Sri Lanka without a scrap of evidence to support such claims.

Yours sincerely,

Mahinda Gunasekera
