The News caption reads:” LTTE favoured after Ranil POWOW!”
The Big question is, “So who gave Ranil Wickremasinghe carte blanche to lobby the EU court which has reportedly lifted restrictive measures on the LTTE, the Sri Lanka Tamil terrorist group globally proscribed and provenly dangerous or is this some kind of joke?
Ranil Wickremasinghe is said to have lobbied the Court of Justice of the European Union which has ordered the Council of the European Union on Thursday to annul the restrictive measures taken against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) although it all seems tantamount to a bunch of nitwits with no real jurisdiction to effect global removal of the proscriptions and Ranil as usual seems to have got involved in some cheap sensationalism which will in all probabilities not augur well towards his political future already in shambles.
So is this a last hurrah on the part of someone whose track record is so blemished with huge faux pas’ that once saw him almost betray the country to the Tamil Tiger terrorists when their campaign though bogus presentations was virtually legitimised internationally
through the duplicities of the likes of Anton Balasingham as well as Eric Solheim where Ranil and the rest of the motley crew sought to fortify their statuses relative to their personal as well as official capacities in so doing yet disastrously backfired on them and made them contentious in the eyes of the world as a bunch of non nation friendly bunglers!.And amazingly he is still at it from the other side of the fence but why is he tolerated?
Ranil and his cohorts who soon after his bunglings as former head of the nation lost their hold on the power grid having been dumped ignominiously by the general voting public of the land yet himself tolerated as an opposition politician somehow clings to the leadership of the UNP where there are far better candidates for the job according to many analysts. He has continued his way with impunity for some of his shady activities indicative of a willingness to compromise the well being of Sri Lanka towards his personal gain where only his high connections and all the jingoism and cronyism which seems to permeate the once powerful UNP now in partisan internal division have oftentimes probably saved him from incarceration. One of these days his luck will surely run out!
The Nation must also remember his mendacious mentality displayed during one of Sri Lanka’s shameful dark days~ involving portrayals of indifference and turning a blind eye to the cause of justice during his tenure at the helm of the Administration with reference to the Batalanda massacres of youth in captivity whose perpetrators ( some say including himself) thus far have never been realistically made accountable for!
On the more current theme-The case ruling at the EU was apparently given in favour of the LTTE on procedural grounds,according to the lawyers representing the LTTE where interestingly and perhaps detrimentally for him UNP and Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe who was on a recent visit to London is reported to have attended a meeting of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) where he is said to have met with leading figures of the Tamil diaspora to solicit their support for his candidature at the soon to be held Presidential election where Ranil Wickremesinghe despite his surmission that he has wide ranging support from among the Conservative administration and members of whom he also met on his tour, the support appears delusionary towards gaining the Presidency!
“His associates at this level are known to be those who have access to legal lobby groups that have openly lobbied in return for handsome cash rewards, for the lifting of restrictions on the terrorist LTTE as the record shows. It is plain that Wickremesinghe lobbied for the lifting of Tiger restrictions in return for LTTE support at future polls,” reliable sources have stated and something he probably needs to be grilled for and severely reprimanded if not indicted within the provisions of the Law where his involvements are not only unconstitutional but appears illegal for someone of his status!.
At the conclusion of the sessions the Court reportedly has annulled specific restrictive measures directed against certain persons and entities by the EU with its view to combating terrorism the way it percieves it and laughably by granting legitimacy to dangerous terrorists.. The Netherlands, the UK and the European Commission were ordered to bear their own respective costs in the case. Considering the implications which openly admit the function of combatting terrorism the decision not only sounds ludicrous but also to a degree biased in favour of the lobby of Diaspora Tamils seemingly pandered to by Ranil .
The court decision which is said to be effective after three months as a result of.finding the current restrictions imposed by the EU inappropriate on techncal grounds, the Court has given a minimum period of two months, extended on account of distance by 10 days, for the EU to come out with a new restrictive measure with respect to the LTTE, if appropriate.The so called technical grounds have not been indicated where in all likelihood these restriction in turn could counteractively at onternational level if it goes that far be deemed null and void where the original restrictions will stand bearing in mind that the EU has no real jurisdiction over global matters and Ranil could find himself barking up the wrong tree and furthermore be paddling a boat in dangerous waters with no paddle!
To reiterate~ Although the European Court of Justice (ECJ) is the highest court in the European Union in matters of European Union law it has no real jurisdiction to deliver any legislation over global matters where the issue of LTTE terrorism is a global one endangering all mankind where the decision to proscribe them is one etched in stone! and one of the reasons it needs to be acclaimed continuously that their elimination was a globally favourable one despite the rhetoric of the Tamil Diaspora aided and abetted by Ranil Wickremasinghe in this instance apparently attempting to recussitate them!.
Undeniably a clear cut case,where power hungry Ranil Wickremasinghe has once again shown his true colours as someone willing to betray the Nation towards his own gain and needs to be brought to task! if all the details prove to be true .
