After reading the headline of Sunday Divaina of 10th July, the President Sirisena blasted the news paper for carrying the news item that War Crimes Investigation will commence in 9 months time and it will be with foreign judges.

The report outlined the relevant details and it was written by veteran defence columnist Keerthi Waranakulsuriya,It proceeded to discuss the key role played by

9 USA based retired judges who were hired by the TGTE to lobby UNHCR in Geneva and its head the Prince Seyd.Further, the report discussed that this decision will be followed up at the UNHRC ‘s session in March 2017 and the setting up of the hybrid courts will commence in February 2017. By September 2016 the the Truth Commission on the lines of South Africa’s Truth Commission will be formed.

It is indeed hypocritical for the President to have reprimanded the news paper for accurate reporting of Sri Lanka’s pathetic situation arising from the Government’s suicidal act of co-sponsoring the war crimes resolution against the country.

The Foreign Minister too had blasted this Defence columnist recently for having

exposed the minister in the company of top LTTE-Eelamists sympathizer lobbyists by publishing a number of photographs.

What Times! The fate of freedom of expression !!!

Will not allow foreign judges or courts to interfere: President දිවයින හෙලිදරවුවෙන් ජනපති කිපේ.. මහ සභාවක පත්තරේද පෙන්වා දෙහි කපයි.. [Video]

President Maithripala Sirisena today vowed that he would not allow any foreign court, judge or organization to interfere with the internal administration and judiciary in the country. Though various views are being expressed in various places regarding the bringing of foreign judges and establishing of foreign military courts to take action against the so called human rights violations during the period of war, I will not allow any national or international activity which challenges the freedom, independence and territorial integrity of the country” he said.

    ARE WE ALL STUPID TO TRUST THIS TWO TOUNGED, BACK STABING TRAITOR ANY MORE?. WE ARE ALREADY PAYING THE PRICE IN SO MANY WAYAS FOR BELIEVEING HIM TWICE.

  2. dhane Says:

    This puppet President does not know what he is talking. Last year he told in TV that he asked RW to removed the CB Governor Mahendran. But RW never did that & this puppet kept his mouth shut until Mahendran robbed as much as possible until his term was over. If you wait another 9 months time there will be War Crimes Investigation will commence with foreign judges. Then this puppet will tell something again. SL are fools to believe this Yahapalanaya any more. Whatever it is sadly there is no proper opposition . During MR period many wrong dealings had taken place while MR was silent.

    Please don’t trust Sirisena. Not only he is fully aware of what is going on, he is the man behind all this. Mangala, Ranil, Ravi and even Mahendran are working according to Sirisena. He has been exceptionally good in pinning the blame on others and shielding the UNP.

    Nivata vairapala sorrysena can only bark at newspapers etc rein them in since they report about the
    pathetic, backboneless traitor. Indians making Sri Lanka a colony of theirs. Federal coming, Buddhism going,
    national flag going, meanwhile traitor nivataya barking. There has never been a person hated by the Sinhalese
    second only to traitor chief die hard catholic token Buddhist pol pot ponil wickramaSinhalakiller. The two traitors
    destroying Sri Lanka, Sinhalese race and Buddhism merrily without a care in the world. Mother Lanka has been
    very very unfortunate to have cancers like these which are slowly killing her.

    In this eelam war of 26 years, over 65,000 Sinhala people and over 75,000 Muslim people were ethnically cleansed from the Northern province. I am sure they also suffered from PTSD due to this and having to live in temporary accommodation for over twenty six years. Also what about the over 360,000 Sinhala people in the East, over 560,000 Muslim people in the East and the over 1.2 million mainly Sinhala people in the North Central Province who had to live in fear being attacked by the LTTE terrorists due to they living in what were called threatened villagers. Over 6,000 mainly Sinhala civilians were massacred by the LTTE terrorists by these attacks as well as bombings. What about all the people in the entire country who had to live in fear of the LTTE terrorists suicide bombings, large scale bomb attacks in Colombo, attacks in installations like the Katunayake airport, the Colombo world trade centre, oil storage facilities to name a few? The LTTE also attacked civilians using claymore mines and IED devices set up along road roadsides which also affected civilians, especially ISnhala civilians in the East and the North Central Province. So all these civilians would have also suffered from PTSD. What about the over 35,000 of the Sri Lankan Forces, Police Force members, Civil Defence Force members who were killed by the LTTE terrorists? What about the over ten thousand Sri Lanka Forces members who are disabled? All of them too must be suffering from PTSD. So this doctor should write about all these victims too not just LTTErs and some Tamil people in the North only. Actually the entire country must be suffering from PTSD to one degree or another due to the LTTE terrorist activities and war. The doctor should also write about these victims too.

    Sri Lanka needs a strong central government in the form of the executive presidency. It is the executive presidency which is keeping the unitary state together since provincial councils have now been provided powers. Therefore if the executive presidency is abolished, the provincial councils will become more powerful and the separatist terroristic TNA will try to break away using threats the North and the East. the PR system is the fairest system which means each vote counts. It is a very democratic system. We do not need any changes to the constitution. These changes to the constitution are only suggested to bring on stealthily a federal or a separate state by falsely labelling it as ‘unitary’ to hoodwink the idiotic Sinhala Buddhists. We do not need any changes to the constitution which is what the separatist terrorists of the TNA, US, UK, EU, Norway, Sweden and Canada wants to dismember this country. Also it is the executive presidential system which can easily carry out programmes to develop the country since otherwise there will be endless wranglings within the cabinet and in parliament about what path to follow for development to happen. A well meaning executive president can easily implement a reasonable and suitable programme to take the country forward. Another main reason to keep the executive presidency as it is to counter the separatist threat since a strong executive president can stop any treacherous activities which goes against the independence, freedom, sovereignty, unitary status etc. of the country since the executive president is elected directly by the people’s vote and is answerable to all the people of the country as a result. So for all these reasons, there is no need whatsoever to change the constitution. However the provincial councils should not be given any more powers, there should not be any merger between provinces, ideally the 13th amendment to the constitution should be abolished and there should be a strong central government if Sri Lanka is to move forward as a country and since it is a small country.

    Not only this, the treacherous Ranil, Sirisena, CBK, Mangala, idiotic UNPers, those INGOs working for thousands of dollars and even the JVP are trying to dismember the country via constitutional changes. We patriotic Sri Lankans should demand a strong central government, no more powers to provincial councils, no merger between provinces, ideally abolition of the 13th amendment to the constitution and absolute safeguarding of the sovereignty of the country.

    The army did not commit any war crimes. it is the LTTE who committed war crimes. However, it is high time that Sri Lanka rejected the US imperialists UNHRC resolution and state at the UNHRC to leave Sri Lanka alone to get on with reconciliation as Sri Lanka sees fit.

    Actually Sri Lanka today being accused of committing war crimes by the US, UK, EU, Norway, Sweden, Canada, India etc. is very similar to the way Saddam Hussein and Iraq was accused of possessing non existent WMDs. Although Iraq did everything possible to show the US, UK, EU, Norway, Sweden, Canada etc. that it did not possess WMD it was bombed anyway, regime change brought about since Iraq has massive amounts of oil which the US, UK, EU, Norway, Sweden, Canada companies wanted to extract at cheap rates by bringing on a puppet regime. A similar scenario is unfolding in Sri Lanka since Sri Lanka is located at a strategic location, the US wanting to establish a naval/air base at Trincomalee, the US wanting to establish further US army, navy, air force bases in the island, mineral resources, marine resources, control of the Indian ocean sea routes etc. For this, the separatist, terroristic Tamils who are subservient to the US are who the US is favouring to help them with this task. This is why the US favours eelam. All patriotic Sri Lankans should therefore tell the government to withdraw from carrying out the US resolution and to tell the US to leave Sri Lanka alone.

    Dilrook, you said “Please don’t trust Sirisena. Not only he is fully aware of what is going on, he is the man behind all this.”

    I think the duo (MS, RW) are playing copmplementary roles, one speaks to the ‘international community’ and the other speaks to the local population.

    What matters is what agreements the govt. makes with the various international bodies. Remember that the infamous CFA was entered into by RW as PM of the country and CB said that she did not know its contents when it was signed.

    It may very well be that this is an agreed upon role play as part of the tactics.

  9. Sooriarachi Says:

    The President is only talking and not taking any meaningful action to stop this attempted miscarriage of justice by the UNHRC, with apparent support from Mangala, Ranil and company. President still has the power to sack at least Mangala, who has been acting in a manner detrimental to Sri Lanka interests. Under Rajapakse, Mangala was sacked for similar activities, demonstrating to the nation, the former President had a backbone to carry out what he stated.

    As for the retired US judges, the key word is “retired”. They are obviously looking for greener pastures to come out of retirement, like many others who have already done things to please the Tamil separatist diaspora.

  10. Dilrook Says:

    That is correct. They are playing complementary roles. SenaD’s explanation is correct.

    UNP addresses the West while Sirisena keeps locals quiet by fooling them.
    UNP takes hard economic decisions while Sirisena pretends to sympathise with the masses.
    UNP robs state coffers (more than others) while Sirisena pretends to take action (after the horses had bolted of course).
    UNP agrees to war crimes with Tamils, India and the West while Sirisena disagrees to the gallery.

    At the end of the day, UNP and Sirisena are one and the same. Their run with the hares and hunt with the hounds strategy works wonderfully as long as people keep believing that Sirisena is unaware of what is happening or he is not taking any action.

    Why should he? It is all his doing through the UNP, TNA, JVP, ACMC and SLMC. He gets all unpopular things done through the UNP and pretends he is unaware. But secretly shares the loot with the UNP.

    Even before becoming president, he showed this remarkable ‘double game’ ability by bringing both TNA and JHU to his political platform.

    Thanks to Wimal, the VAT bill now has to be passed in parliament. UNP needs Sirisena’s SLFP MPs to pass it. Will Sirisena lend his support to increasing VAT?

    Sri Lanka should tell the US that Sri Lanka cannot abide by the UNHRC resolution. The Sri Lankan Army did not commit any war crimes. It is the LTTE terrorists who committed war crimes throughout 26 years of war. No country with an ounce of self respect will place their army in harms way to be tried by a court domestic or hybrid of war crimes the army did not commit in anyway. If individual soldiers committed any crimes, a complaint can be placed in a court of law in Sri Lanka. Why is there a need for special judicial procedures? This government is a puppet of the US, EU, UK, Norway, Sweden, Canada and India and is so subservient to US interests that it is ready to try its own armed forces for crimes that the armed forces did not commit. All the while, the LTTE terrorists who committed war crimes are being shown as totally innocent. Using the ploy of wanting a new constitution which almost all Sri Lankans don’t want, this treacherous government is trying to create a separate state in the guise of a federal state as the TNA separatist terrorists and the US, EU, UK, Norway, Sweden, Canada and India wants. Sri Lanka should tell the US that Sri Lanka cannot abide by the UNHRC resolution. The worst that the US, UK, EU, Sweden, Norway and India can do is impose sanctions on Sri Lanka. So what? Sri Lanka can trade with all the countries of Asia and the rest of the world even if the US, UK, EU, Norway, Sweden and India imposes sanctions. Sri Lanka can grow rice, we have jack fruit, bananas, bread fruit and plenty of water too. So we will not starve just because the US, UK, EU, Sweden, Norway and India imposes sanctions. Also since we can trade with the powerful economies of Asia which includes the Middle East, South East Asia, South Asia, the Far East and Central Asia as well as the rest of the world, actually, we may be OK economically too despite any sanctions imposed by the US, EU, UK, Norway, Sweden, Canada and India. However by avoiding implementing the unjust UNHRC resolution, Sri Lanka will safeguard its independence and freedom which is the most important thing for the next thousands of years as we have safeguarded our independence and freedom for at least the last 2600 years and avoid the creation of a separate state or eelam in the guise of a federal state. So Sri Lanka must very urgently tell the US that we will not abide by the unjust UNHRC resolution but carry out our own domestic process of reconciliation as we see fit. Let the imperialist US impose sanctions. Nothing much will happen to our economy since we can trade with the powerful economies of Asia and the rest of the world instead but Sri Lanka would have preserved its independence and freedom for the next thousands of years and avoid the partition of the country and the creation of a separate state which will be Sri Lanka’s end.
