 UN (OISL) Report Names Several Commanding Officers of the Sri Lankan Army Involved in the Final Phase of War in Wanni.

Posted by Administrator on 20 September 2015, 10:50 am
The Office of the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner Investigation on Sri Lanka(OISL) report has outlined the structure of the Sri Lankan armed forces with specific reference to the commanding officers involved in the final phase of the war that occurred in the Northern mainland known as the Wanni.
The OISL report names several senior officers and the military entities they commanded during the final phase of war during which it is alleged that several human rights violations, war crimes and crimes against humanity were committed.
Though no specific charges have not been included in the report it may be inferred that the naming of such commanding officers has been done with a view to encourage” a detailed inquiry by an envisaged special tribunal into the roles played by these officers and the activities of military personnel under their command during the final phase of the conflict in which large numbers of unarmed civilians have reportedly perished.
Among the military top brass involved in the final phase of the war in the Wanni who have been named in the OISL report are former army commander Gen.Jagath Jayasuriya who served as Security Forces Headquarters commander in overall charge of the Wanni region in the last phase of the conflict. Others so named and the ranks they held during the war’s final phase include Major General Kamal Gunaratne, Brigadier Prasanna Silva, Major General Jagath Dias, Brigadier Shavendra Silva, Brigadier Nandana Udawatta , Brigadier Chagie Gallage, Brigadier Priyantha Napagoda, Colonel Athula Kodippily Brigadier Rohana Bandara , Brigadier Sathyapriya Liyanage , Colonel Nishantha Wanniarachchi and Colonel G.V. Ravipriya
Most of the senior military officers named in the OISL report were promoted after the war ended and hold a higher rank now. Some were given diplomatic postings abroad.
The OISL report has also suggested in another section that Sri Lanka should enact legislation to criminalize war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and enforced disappearances without statute of limitation and that it should also enact various modes of criminal liability, notably command or superior responsibility;
The OISL report has also recommended that the Sri Lankan Govt should Issue clear, public and unequivocal instructions to all branches of the military and security forces that torture, rape, sexual violence and other human rights violations are prohibited and that those responsible, both directly or as commander or superior, will be investigated and punished;
It has also suggested that the Govt should develop a fully-fledged vetting process respecting due process to remove from office military and security force personnel and any other public official where there are reasonable grounds to believe that they were involved in human rights violations;
The references to the Sri Lankan army structure in general and the commanding officers in the Wanni during the final phase of the war are excerpted from the OISL report and reproduced below –
Sri Lanka Army
The Army Commander is the most senior officer within the Army. The President, as Commander-in-Chief, appoints the Army Commander. General L.P.Balagalle was Army Commander from August 2000 to July 2004. He was replaced by General S.H.S. Kottegoda. General Sarath Fonseka was appointed as Army Commander on 6 December 2005. He was replaced by General Jagath Jayasuriya in July 2009.
The Director of Operations was the senior army officer in the Joint Operations HQ, with ‘hands-on’ responsibility for battlefield management. He worked under the supervision of the Army Commander, to monitor and coordinate the activity of the operational units who were actively engaged in the fighting.
Security Force HQ: a Corps level formation, commanded by a Major General having a defined geographical area of responsibility, and a number of different combat Divisions and supporting units under command. During the final phase of the armed conflict, the SFHQ-Vanni was headed by the thenMajor General Jagath Jayasuriya, who was an interlocutor for the United Nations and other international agencies, particularly regarding security.
Division: a combined arms manoeuvre formation capable of independent battlefield operations, numbering some 10 to 20,000 soldiers. Commanded by a two-star general, it has a number of different combat Brigades and supporting units under command, according to OISL’s information during the final phase of the armed conflict the following Division commanders were:
53rd Division : Major General Kamal Gunaratne
55th Division : Brigadier Prasanna Silva
57th Division : Major General Jagath Dias
58th Division : Brigadier Shavendra Silva
59th Division: Brigadier Nandana Udawatta and subsequently Brigadier Chagie Gallage
Brigade: a major tactical infantry formation, commanded by a one-star general (Brigadier), numbering some 3,500 to 6000 soldiers. It has a number of different combat battalions and other supporting units under command. In addition to the Brigades attached to the divisions was the Artillery Brigade. According to a 3 June 2009 Daily News article, the Artillery Brigade Commander during the final phase of the armed conflict was Brigadier Priyantha Napagoda. The Special Forces Brigade was headed by Colonel Athula Kodippily.
Battalion: a tactical infantry formation, commanded by a Lieutenant Colonel and numbering some 650 men. It consists of a number of combat companies and support companies, all of which are an integral part of that battalion.

Task Force:
 This was an ad-hoc grouping put together for a specific task requiring a separate formation command. It was hierarchically equivalent to a division, but had the size of a strong brigade . It comprised a mixture of existing units ‘borrowed’ from other formations and new units that were raised by new recruitment during the rapid expansion of the army.
According to maps compiled by the Defence Ministry, Task Forces 2, 3, 4 and 8 were particularly involved in the final weeks of the conflict. According to the Ministry of Defence website, the following were Commanders of Task Forces:Brigadier Rohana Bandara (Task Force 2); Brigadier Sathyapriya Liyanage (Task Force 3); Colonel Nishantha Wanniarachchi (Task Force 4); Colonel G.V. Ravipriya (Task Force 8).

    Should we save SL through GUARDIAN GODS or follow BRITISH & ENDIAN IMPOSED governance systems to extinction?

    Sri Lanka opposes text of first US draft resolution on war crimes at UNHRC
    Mon, Sep 21, 2015, 09:31 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Sept 21, Geneva: Sri Lanka has rejected the draft resolution prepared by the United States on human rights violations and war crimes which is to be presented to the on-going 30th session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva.

    Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha delivering a statement at the informal consultation on the draft resolution on Sri Lanka organized by the Permanent Mission of the United States said Sri Lanka is concerned regarding the formulations provided in several of the Operative paragraphs of the resolution.

    He said the certain terminology used in the text is intrusive to be presented in a human rights resolution, especially when the country concerned is engaging with the international community including with the OHCHR.

    Pointing out that the OHCHR recognizes its report represents a “human rights investigation” and not a “criminal investigation” Aryasinha said the resolution emphasizing excessively on the criminal justice aspects, makes it imbalanced.

    “It would be more helpful to have a holistic approach when making recommendations in this resolution on promoting reconciliation in Sri Lanka,” he said.

    The Ambassador said Sri Lanka urges from the members “understanding, patience, assistance, encouragement, support, trust, goodwill and faith.”

    “At a time when we have a new Government that is adopting a calmly different path to that which was followed in the era before 8 January, the expectation is, naturally, that there would be a similar change in tone, tenor, and even strategy on the part of the Council as well.”

    Full text of Ambassador Aryasinha”s speech:

    I thank Ambassador Harper and his delegation for inviting me and my delegation to this informal consultation. I also take this opportunity to greet the Ambassador of the US to Sri Lanka Mr. Atul Keshap who is here with us today.

    As set out by the Minister of Foreign Affairs in his statement in the Council on 14 September, the Government of Sri Lanka recognizes fully, that the process of reconciliation involves addressing the broad areas of truth-seeking, justice, reparations and non-recurrence, and for non-recurrence to become truly meaningful, the necessity of reaching a meaningful political settlement.

    The Minister outlined as well, the ideas that the Government has evolved for setting up independent, credible and empowered mechanisms for this purpose. This includes 4 mechanisms to be set up by Statute:

    I. A Commission for Truth, Justice, Reconciliation and Non-recurrence,
    II. An Office on missing persons based on the families right to know, designed and implemented with the support of the ICRC,
    III. A Judicial Mechanism with a Special Counsel that aims to address the problem of impunity for human rights violations suffered by all communities, and
    IV. An Office for Reparations.

    It was also pointed out that all these mechanisms will be evolved and designed through a wide process of consultations involving all stakeholders including victims, communities, political parties, civil society representatives, the military, the High Commissioner and his office, bilateral partners, relevant international organizations as well as members of the diaspora who wish to be consulted. It was also explained that we expect the mechanisms to be designed in a manner that they would have the necessary freedom to obtain assistance – financial, material and technical, from our international partners including the OHCHR.

    Taking office following the elections on the 8 of January, has clearly demonstrated, through a series of actions, the intention to ensure meaningful culture and society based on the rule of law and good governance, promote and protect human rights, uphold democracy, and the universal values of equality, justice and freedom. I do not, on this occasion, endeavor to list out the many measures that have been taken since January 8, including legislative measures. I am sure that all of you, who have watched Sri Lanka closely, are aware of all these details.

    In this context, what we urge from our friends in this room and beyond is understanding, patience, assistance, encouragement, support, trust, goodwill and faith. At a time when we have a new Government that is adopting a calmly different path to that which was followed in the era before 8 January, the expectation is, naturally, that there would be a similar change in tone, tenor, and even strategy on the part of the Council as well.

    As you are aware, the government, on its own volition, and conviction that it has to do right by all her people, has already commenced taking steps to address many of the concerns in the previous resolutions and reports as well.

    Further, given that both the HCHR”s report (A/ HRC/30/ 61) and the Report on the OHCHR investigation on Sri Lanka (OISL) (A/HRC/30/SRP.2) recognizes that the report represents a “human rights investigation” and not a “criminal investigation”, emphasizing excessively on the criminal justice aspects, makes the resolution imbalanced. It would be more helpful to have a holistic approach when making recommendations in this resolution on promoting reconciliation in Sri Lanka.

    We also remain concerned regarding the formulations provided in several of the Operative paragraphs. Certain terminology used such as “verification”, is new and intrusive language to be presented in a human rights resolution, especially when the country concerned is engaging with the international community including with the OHCHR.

    Yahapalanaya traitors keep your hands off from our war heroes who sacrificed their lives to save our Motherland. UNP jokers were making fun of our war heroes during the war and still they have a grudge with them for ending the war so quickly. If they take the lead to harm anyone in the Armed Forces they will pay a price for their treacherous actions. The whole nation must stand together to save our war heroes without any party politics. No harm should come to anyone in the Armed Forces. Period. They fought to save our country.We the citizens must stand together to protect our sons and daughters who fought a brutal war with most ruthless terror outfit in the world.

    We have to arrange Bodi Pujas all over the country to bring peace to the country back again at this very unfortunate situation. We have to stop foreign interference immediately if not our country will be like Iraq or Libya. Stand up to fight against this evil Regime of Sira/Ranil. Defeat both the parties in the coming small election to teach them a lesson.Do not trust any word of Sira or Ranil. They are the stooges of the west and Indian parasites. Reject them in wholesale.

    How I see the end of this backstabbing saga is: Ranil will/or has already helped India and the West the frame Sirisena (who was the Acting Minister of Defence when the war was fought) and Fonseka (the Army Chief during the war) for war crimes. Then only these two idiots will realise the value of the greatest son of mother Lanka MAHINDA.

    Now I feel ashamed being a Sri Lankan. We couldn’t save those who gave our lives back, we couldn’t ensure them a glorious and a peaceful end to their lives. What would befall on us is THE HENA HATHA.

  8. Fran Diaz Says:

    How did Lanka Army fall into this sorry position of so called War Crimes ?

    It was because India TRAINED the LTTE in Tamil Nadu during pro-west JRJ times in early 1980s (Cold War times, 1946-1991). IT IS NOW OBVIOUS THAT INDIA DID NOT WANT A PRO-WEST GoSL NEXT DOOR, AT THAT TIME.

    Furthermore :

    But, in 2015, this is India’s position, at least re the OHCHR (apparently a highly pro-west only body) :

    Also, please read MR’s communique re the OHCHR report on Lanka (Colombo Telegraph, Sept 22). In it, MR states that INDIA, Pakistan & Cuba were AGAINST the OHCHR office reporting on Sri Lanka. MR advises the new GoSL to ignore the OHCHR report as the organisation itself is NOT a valid UN body. In the current confusions, MR has at least taken away the confusion that the OHCHR report has caused.

    ————

    Lesson Learnt : DO NOT ALLOW TAMIL NADU DALIT ILLEGAL MIGRANTS TO ENTER LANKA BY TENS OF THOUSANDS ! It only encourages Tamil Leaders of Lanka to push more for Eelam and cause civil war in Lanka. Say “NO” to the Bridge !! Tamil Nadu leaders will have to solve their caste/poverty problems in those areas and not export them to Lanka.

    Fran,

    “MR advises the new GoSL to ignore the OHCHR report as the organisation itself is NOT a valid UN body.”

    Now everybody is calling to IGNORE the report. But MR never ignored them during his time.

    Just saying because otherwise I will be telling a lie. We should not tell lies.

    “Secretary to the President Lalith Weeratunga who briefed Permanent Representatives to the United Nations in Geneva at the Palais des Nations on Tuesday (21st January 2014) on ‘Progress in the reconciliation process in Sri Lanka’, has said the Government of Sri Lanka has done all that was humanly possible to implement the recommendations of the National Plan of Action on the implementation of the LLRC.”
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

    “In a resolution (A/HRC/25/L.1/Rev.1) on promoting reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka, adopted by a vote of 23 in favour, 12 against and 12 abstentions, the Council ……………………. reiterates its call upon the Government of Sri Lanka to implement effectively the constructive recommendations made in the report of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission

    “http://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=14447&LangID=E#sthash.oomT3y7M.dpuf”

    UNP is a US and Endian PAWN. I can’t imagine them IGNORING the OHCHR report when MR did everything “humanely possible” to COMPLY with the UNHRC resolution.

    Lorenzo,

    Let us wait and see if the Siri-Wicki duo, (as HLD calls them !), are up to doing things in a lawful manner. It is a question of legality and illegality, whether local or international. Trust is built up from the People only if the govt acts in a legal manner, according to the law of the land, and not on whims and facies, isn’t it ?

  11. Lorenzo Says:

    Fran,

    Wait and see?

    No way! Wait until our war heroes come in ashes in jars?? No way.

    Law of the land is an ass. It can be changed according to the whims and fancies of politicians.

    e.g. 13 amendment, 18 amendment, 19 amendment.

    Remember Sebala Ikkanayaka? International law and local law contradicted. International law prevailed!! And people voted for the UNP again AFTER that in massive numbers.

    Truth has no place in SL politics. ALL are hypocrites.

  12. Independent Says:

    Looks like Fran has some faith in Sir-Wiky.
    But who the hell if Fran ? France ? may be somebody. But USA already married “Siri-Wicky”. No problem now. Mahinda should shout in parliament and see whether Ruinil will ask him to SIT DOWN.

  13. Fran Diaz Says:

    We have no alternative. Wait and see.

    The time of the 13-A is past but yet illegal. 18-A is gone. 19-A was approved by Parliament. Staying with the Law of the Land is the only way Trust and Respect are gained. No other way.
