High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein
UN Human Rights Council
Palais Wilson, 52 rue des Paquis
CH-1201 Geneva, Switzerland.

Dear Mr. High Commissioner Zeid:

Five days ago I received  a nine page letter titled: Sri Lanka Investigation: OHCHR must admit or deny it printed submission forms and if monetary compensation was paid for testimonies, and lo and behold Zeid, I happened to  be one of the 237 recipients  of this letter around the world.  I consider myself a Lilliputian among all  powerful big names in the world of International politics,  Presidents and Prime Ministers of Nations, High Commissioners, Editors of renowned News papers and journals, Human Rights Organizations, et cetera. With that letter circulating around the world, you have been bestowed with an additional first name as ‘Mud’ Zeid, unless you come clean and be honest to answer the questions that have been directed to you in that nine-page letter, and have‘Mud” erased off your name.

It was obvious that who ever sent me this letter felt that I ought to read it as it would fascinate me since I was involved in commenting on the Tamil Tiger issues for 30 years from Ottawa, Canada, and watched with dismay how the Canadian politicians, the Conservatives, Liberals and the NDPrs   alike getting sucked into the vortex of the  separate mono-ethnic, racist, Tamil state Eelam cause for their Tamil-Canadian constituents, and doing their song and dance and directing their venom at Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapaksa, saying, We will Huff and we will Puff, until we Blow your House Down.”     And my Prime Minister Stephen Harper getting into a hissy-fit and deciding to boycott the Commonwealth Summit last year because it was held in Colombo, the capital of the Commonwealth country that managed to wipe out the Tamil Tiger terrorists the most ruthless in the world in 30 months, when they took on the Tamil Tigers challenge. By then the Tamil Tigers had hemorrhaged the island for 27 bloody years and killing over 100,000 people including India’s Rajiv Gandhi and Sri Lanka’s President Premadasa.

What is nauseous about Prime Minister Harper’s decision is that his Government since 19 May 2009,  has not acknowledged the bare fact that Sri Lanka liberated 295,873 Tamils from the clutches of the Tamil Tiger terrorists who used these Tamils as a human shield and herded them like unwashed cattle from the west coast to the east coast for 30 months.  Furthermore, his Government has still not acknowledged that the Sri Lankan Government not only saved 295,873 Tamils but also prepared a million meals a day to feed them hearty breakfasts, lunches and dinners. This was a classic text book example of a positive human rights act which has been ignored up to today.  I smell a rat here, don’t you, Zeid?  The reasoning is very clear when the Canadian  Federal election is  just  a few months away in 2015 and they want  the 1000s of Tamil votes.

Coming back to the letter that I received, I am quite sure that the sender also wanted me to be Judge and Jury on your attack on the Sri Lankan Government while sitting on the warmed up saddle on the high horse that your predecessor,  Tamil Navi Pillai had just vacated.  I did read the letter diligently, and made my judgment as a jurist for the Layman’s Court, and will announce my judgment at the end of my letter to you.

Reading the letter asking  Sri Lanka Investigation: OHCHR must admit…”, it was obvious to me that you forgot to bring on the plane on your way to Geneva to take up your appointment,  the Middle Eastern  Jordan brand Alibaba-broom to  sweep the UN’s Geneva office clean of every vindictive smouldering Navi Pillai’s dregs on Sri Lanka.  Too bad, as it shows the world that you are another  member of the Human Right’s Mafia Navi Pillai cookie-cutter brand of World’s Human Rights Police.  So it does seem that Sri Lanka has to deal with you, with your warts and all.  And believe me, and they will.

That circulating letter is clear as  the  tut-tut-tut sounds of the firing NATO guns at the Taliban terrorists.    The two part Question is: Were the UNHRC War Crimes submission forms printed in  collaboration with your  UN office in Geneva and delivered to the TNA (Tamil National Alliance); and were monetary compensation  promised in exchange for  fraudulent testimonies?

Zeid, this is not a tricky question for a PhD from Cambridge University’s Christ College.  After all you are not a High School drop out who has difficulty to understand simple questions.   Let me repeat the question that calls for your response: Were the UNHRC War Crimes submission  forms printed in collaboration with your UN office in Geneva and delivered to the TNA (Tamil National Alliance); and were monetary compensation promised in exchange for fraudulent testimonies?

What is expected from you is a simple three word answer.  Yes, we did” or No we didn’t.”

You know the genesis of the story, don’t you Zeid?  An un-rehabilitated Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE aka Tamil Tigers) cadre, Sinnathamby Sinnarasa, whose arrest was reported on 25th October 2014.  When arrested   he had in his possession signatures on blank UNHRC War Crimes Submission forms of unknown Tamil IDPs since re-settled in the northern region of Sri Lanka.  He had been collecting these signatures on the instructions of a Tamil National Alliance (TNA), a proxy political party of the banned Tamil Tiger’s political advisor (Sun Master alias Alva Pulle Vijendrakumar) who has now fled to India and was associated with the US embassy political affairs officer Mike Erwin.   The question that I ask you is: What are the UNHRC and LTTE and TNA and Foreign Envoys up to?   I believe that they all want to screw Sri Lanka onto the same wall that they screwed Libya’ s Muhammad Kaddafi, and invade Sri Lanka on a lie the way the Americans did to Iraq  killing 1.2 million innocent Iraqis and dissect Sri Lanka into two.  One part for the  minority Tamils and the other for the majority Sinhalese and other ethnic groups.  You know all that Zeid don’t you as you come from that part of the world and a Prince to  boot of the Hashemite dynasty.   Right Zeid!

And so you get angry, and in the typical  Tamil Navi Pillai fashion accused the Sri Lankan Government of This continuing campaign of distortion and disinformation about the investigation, as well as the insidious attempts to present possible bona fide witnesses from submitting information to the investigating team, is an affront to the United Nations Human Rights Council which mandated the investigation…Since the end of the conflict in 2009, Sri Lanka has continued to obstruct any independent investigation despite the persistent, compelling and widespread allegations that possible serious international crimes were committed by both sides during the conflict in Sri Lanka.”     Wo…Wo…Wo…hold your horses right there, Mr. Zeid, I mean Your Highness, Prince Zeid.  Let’s be less stupid and less arrogant on this score rather than mouthing off your  Tamil Navi Pillai brand of vindictive venom.    Letting your mouth spit out dragon breath before your brain permits you to by saying… Yes, do it, go ahead, Zeid.”

Hey!  But didn’t you realize that what you did not do was to answer those two simple questions.  You are obviously feeling the heat of Sri Lanka Government’s allegations that caught you with your pants down, your cummerbund splitting asunder and your trousers slipping down over your hips and legs and dropping in a crude bundle at your feet. That is what it is.  But you cannot get away from those two simple questions.   Let me repeat the two questions one more time:   Were the UNHRC War Crimes Submission forms printed in collaboration with your  UN office in Geneva and delivered to the TNA (Tamil National Alliance); and were monetary compensation promised in exchange for fraudulent testimonies?   Stop going around the Sumac bush…the Sumac bush…the Sumac bush…as the questions will not brush away!

Zeid, how dare you accuse the Government of Sri Lanka of attempting to prevent bonafide witnesses from submitting information to the investigating team, as they have sworn that neither was any attempt made to deter and intimidate individuals from submitting evidence?  Sri Lanka’s Ambassador of the Permanent Mission to the UN in Geneva, has told you all in simple English, and not in Sinhala nor in Tamil, in case you get distorted information in translation: The submissions that the investigation would have received by now would stand to prove this fact.”

 It is shame on you Zeid that you have taken upon yourself to continue with the Tamil Navi Pillai’s Tin-Goddess-arrogance and issue a Press Release questioning the integrity of the Government of a sovereign nation that has been a member of the UN since 1955.  This incident is going to boomerang on you and is going to question your integrity, as was with Tamil Navi Pillai.

What you cannot ignore is the fact that the Government of Sri Lanka had informed a selected group of Ambassadors based in Sri Lanka about the revelations made by an individual who was apprehended on the grounds of being a non-rehabilitated Tamil Tiger cadre.  What was revealed was that this person had been employed to collect signatures of persons affected by the conflict on blank submission forms by deceiving them into believing that they would be granted monetary compensation by the UN.  The forms were to then be used to submit false and fabricated information to the OISL.  So what have you got to say to those mischievous, dishonest shenanigans by the UN, Zeid?

Your response should be honest and clean as a whistle and not bamboozle us by going around the Sumac bush…the Sumac bush….the Sumac bush… as it will only crush your credibility.

Zeid, and then you have griped that The Government (of Sri Lanka) has refused point blank to cooperate with the investigation (into allegations of human rights violations in the last phase of the war); such refusal does not undermine the integrity of an investigation set by the Council – instead it raises concerns about the integrity of the Government in concern”.  Zeid, you have the gall even to walk that path.  You are certainly walking on thin ice.  Don’t you understand that the Sri Lankan Government have explained to you guys, not once, not twice but scores of times the reason by detailing you and your Office’s lack of consistency, you and your Office’s lack of partiality, you and your Office’s lack of rigor and integrity, and especially that of your predecessor Tamil Navi Pillai.   You can take it or leave it Zeid.  And I say tough  tiddy to you and your gang in Geneva.   With these facts in place, Sri Lanka has every right to object, and every right to question your integrity for letting your office unleash invectives on Sri Lanka in a Press Release.

The fact is Zeid, that you have made a choice to cast aspersions and denigrate a democratically elected Government.  And Sri Lanka is within its rights to make its choice to strongly defend its people’s dignity against the vilifying western harassing forces making sure that all of her citizens can live in dignity, enjoying equality and self-respect.   And that is the very reason why the Sri Lankan Government has made its choice to steadfastly maintain that it owes to the country’s dignity and not subject its peoples to a  roguish investigation of yours which does not conform even to the basics of justice and fair play. And it was restoring her peoples dignity that made the Sri Lankan soldiers liberate 295,873 Tamils from the clutches of the Tamil Tigers by 19 May 2009, that neither your UN nor my Canada have had the curtsey and gumption to acknowledge up to now this amazing human rights act.  And by eliminating the Tamil Tigers on 19 May 2009, gave back to 21 million of her people their right-to-life that was high jacked by the Tamil Tigers for 27 long years.  Neither your UN nor my Canada patted Sri Lanka’s back and say, Thanks for your commitment on human rights and getting rid of terrorism in your nation.  Way to go, Sri Lanka!” 

And that is how the UN’s investigation on Sri Lanka’s cookie crumbles.  And that is where the rub is on your UN.

My conclusion as a  judge and jurist for the Layman’s Court, Zeid, is  with that Press Release you have lost your credibility as the  UN High Commissioner of Human Rights in Geneva, and you have just hung your portrait beside that of Tamil Navi Pillai’s at the UN’s  Sri Lanka Bashers Rogues Gallery. You certainly shouldn’t be crazy about that, being born Prince  Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein of the Hashemite dynasty.  I have concluded that your office in Geneva is an institution that harasses the puny nations and scared to take on the powerful nations who are the ones who pay for your slice of  bread, the dollop of  butter, the 14 ounce steak of beef and a glass of wine at supper time.  And I understand, as how could you not serve your Master who sustains you and your staff.  And that is the bottom line and a reality check for you, and to hell with puny Sri Lanka.

And the question that still needs an answer from you is: Were the UNHRC War Crimes submission forms printed in collaboration with your  UN office in Geneva and delivered to the TNA (Tamil National Alliance): and were monetary compensation promised in exchange for  fraudulent testimonies.

Oh, by the way, I did make three submissions to the UN Investigating Panel.  Read them if you can manage to retrieve them and have the time.  It will be a learning curve for you on the abusers of Sri Lanka

Sincerely

Asoka Weerasinghe (Mr.)

    Time for Sri Lanka to take a page from Putin. Put nationalism in front EVEN IF IT DOES NOT WIN FRIENDS AND ACCOLADES FROM THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY IF IT DOES NOT.

    Time for Sri Lanka to take a page from the BJP and prioritize Sinhala over Tamil,prioritize Pali over Tamil. Tamils HAVE A HOMELAND IN INDIA CALLED TAMIL NADU. IN TAMIL NADU CHENNAI DOES NOT CATER TO SINHALESE BY MAKING SINHALESE AN OFFICIAL LANGUAGE OF THEIR HOMELAND.

    IN SRI LANKA TAMILS HAVE TO LEARN SINHALESE OR GET OUT!!!.

    Time to take a page from the Muslim world and make Buddhism a state faith. EVEN IF THE TAMILS SCREAM LOUDER THAN USUAL. THEY DO NOT HAVE THE POWER, THE SINHALESE DO IN SRI LANKA.
    THE TAMILS IN TAMIL NADU DO NOT OWN KATCHACHEEVU, SRI LANKA DOES
    THE INDIAN TAMIL FISHERMEN CANNOT AND SHOULD NOT INVADE SRI LANKAN WATERS. SRI LANKA IS NOT TAMIL NADU’S BACK YARD.
    COLOMBO COMMANDS MORE POWER THAN CHENNAI EVEN THOUGH CHENNAI THINKS SHE HAS MORE POWER THAN COLOMBO.
    COLOMBO CONTROLS A MILITARY, CHENNAI DEPENDS ON NEW DELHI FOR THIS
    COLOMBO CAN MAKE ALLIANCES WITH NATIONS, CHENNAI CANNOT
    COLOMBO IS THE CAPITAL OF AN ISLAND NATION, CHENNAI IS THE CAPITAL OF AN INDIAN STATE.
    THE CULTURE OF SRI LANKA IS DEFINED BY SINHALESE BUDDHISM REGARDLESS IF THE TAMILS WERE THERE IN SRI LANKA BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF VIJAYA.

    The world sees the United States, Australia, Canada as English speaking European people with Christian base EVEN THOUGH THESE NATIONS AT THE LONGEST WERE FORMED AROUND 4 HUNDRED YEARS AGO.

    SRI LANKA HAS A DOCUMENTED HISTORY IN PALI AND LATER ON IN SINHALESE THAT IS UNBROKEN FOR 2 THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED YEARS.

    IF THE TAMILS REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THIS SIMPLE FACT THEN THE SINHALESE ARE NOT OBLIGED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THEM OR THEIR VOICE. GET OUT AND TAKE THAT BIGOTRY TO TAMIL NADU!!!!

    Another racist ranting here, I mean the one commenting above. Thank you Asoka for this article.

    The circulating letter is crystal clear, and the two part Question still is: “Were the UNHRC War Crimes submission forms printed in collaboration with your UN office in Geneva and delivered to the TNA (Tamil National Alliance); and were monetary compensation promised in exchange for fraudulent testimonies?” Mr. High Commissioner ‘Mud’ Zeid should answer? Or should join the Rogue gallery of Ugly Betty. Kofi Annan, and indeed Ban ki Moon?
    How are such crooks appointed to UN’s high post, weren’t they wetted? Should we not question our Minister of External affairs how this is allowed to happen again and again? Should we always be closing the gate after the horse has runaway?
    Remember people deserve the leaders they get!

    As I said before this is a LAW AND ORDER and MILITARY ISSUE.

    It has to be handled militarily.

    We CANNOT control the UN but we can BUST the local TERRORISTS working with it.

    What do you expect when Kasippu Joseph and 130 priests, TNA MPs and other TNA racists, etc. can GET AWAY all the time by spreading lies against SL.

    It only encourages others to do so.

  5. Lorenzo Says:

    1. Photos of these forms were published in Sunday Leader (thank god there are NO imbeciles left at the sunday leader anymore).

    Why Micro keeps asking for PDF copies? To print and distribute among Tamils to use them?

    This is WHY they are not readily available in PDF format. ANY LOSER can print them and use them for the purpose of collecting evidence against SL!!

    2. TNA (=LTTE) used these forms NOT to submit these as evidence to UNHRC. They used them to COLLECT evidence. The TNA (=LTTE) would COLLATE these and submit to UNHRC in the specified format. When Tamil people see the UN format, they KNOW it is a serious attempt to collect evidence to frame SL leaders. Otherwise they don’t bother. They have seen at least 12 forms previously and nothing happened!

    3. So many Tamil terrorists escaped. BAD? Absolutely. But that doesn’t affect the credibility of the allegation. They KNOW what happened to LTTE JAYAKUMARI and don’t want to end up in BOOSSA.

    SL’s security is a BIG JOKE for Tamil terrorists.
    Similarly, Tamil terrorists’ security is a BIG JOKE for SL.

  6. Lorenzo Says:

    COMMON CANDY-DATE crowd is in a mad rush to get a common candidate BEFORE the election is declared.

    IF it happens AFTER the election is declared, then it becomes a POLITICAL ALLIANCE. They want to AVOID the label and have a common candidate BEFORE election is declared.

    Sob-itha is in hospital. Apparently he was food poisoned by a POWERFUL common candidate contestent because he demanded the CC to RESIGN from the party as a precondition to become a CC. This man is SO CONCERNED about his post in his party and refuses to leave it. He wants to finalize matters WITHOUT Sob-itha.

    Run-nil is waiting till this loser RESIGNS from the UNP so he can appoint his man to the vacant post and contest the election.

    It’s all happening.

    The INAUSPICIOUS TIME is in another 6 hours at the GALADARI hotel in the presence of the US ambassador and UK, Endian HCs. Lets see what happens. Given the CALIBRE of common candidates, filth, violence, cursing, spitting, etc. cannot be ruled out!!

  7. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Callistus: you call my comment ‘racist”? I have read real racist comments here in the US by the type like Reverend Farrakkan or Reverand Right. I have heard the rantings of Tamils claiming outrageous numbers of Tamils “slaughtered” by the Sri Lankan “Sinhalese” army and then they end with racist comments of annihilating the Sinhalese for charges they trumped up. If you want to use that term on my comment write back and tell me what is racist about it or you will sound the hypocrite.

  8. Lorenzo Says:

    BW,

    Leave my friend Noor alone. He goes jarhead after reading that horrible book. A drunkard may be taken more seriously than him.

    Obviously you are NOT a racist. We all know that.

  9. Lorenzo Says:

    Common candidate MOU signing postponed due to disagreements.

    Disagreements postponed the signing of common candidate MOU today. The list of common candidates.

    1. Ven Sob-itha
    2. Ven Ratana
    3. Ranil
    4. CBK
    5. Karu
    6. SF or Anoma
    7. Arjuna
    8. Senethra Bandaranayaka
    9. Mythree Wickramasinghe
    10. Anura
    11. Ratnasiri
    12. Mangala
    13. Vigneswaran

  10. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Lorenzo:
    If Callistus can label me as a racist for my comments then I hold him responsible to back it up. His sobriety should have been the question when he made that charge. Now that he has. he should have the honor of backing it or withdrawing it. it speaks extremely poorly on him to leave that to you to do. Since this is a public forum and he made that statement independent of you then he has to defend it or recant it. It is as simple as that.

    As for leaving people “alone” I did not take him on, he took me on.
