Western hypocrisy and double standards exposed
Posted on November 1st, 2018

By; A.A.M.NIZAM – MATARA

I feel it is pertinent to start this article with a warning that had been given by Tamara Kunanayakam, an ardent patriot, the former Sri Lankan Ambassador to Cuba and the career diplomat who was the only Sri Lankan in 1989 to meet, accommodate, feed and look after Prime Minister Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa and Mr. Vasudeva Nanayakkara when they visited Geneva to present the case of JVP youths being massacred by the then UNP government killer squads led by Rajitha Senaratne, Sunanda Desapriya and some others

She states that Sri Lanka is blatant external interference in a domestic political process, an act inadmissible to any sovereign state and a climate of insecurity is being created artificially by the defeated allies of the West whose objective seems to be to provoke a violent situation that will provide justification for external intervention to restore them to power, if necessary, by force and the ousted Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe defying a legitimate decision taken by the President. Tamara points out that the collective decision that had been taken by the Western envoys a day after a new Prime Minister was sworn in to meet formally and jointly with an ousted Prime Minister in an Office that was no longer his. Was unprecedented.

She states that the current situation in Sri Lanka is grossly distorted in the international media, through misrepresentation of outright lies. For instance, the killing of a Ceylon Petroleum Corporation employee and injuring of other trade unionists were being blamed on Mahinda Rajapaksa, and not on the security officer of the former Minister who tried to enter the premises illegally and Trade Unions and government workers supporting the President’s decisions are being referred to as ‘mobs.’

She asks why these hypocrites who brand themselves as saviours and promoters of democracy remained silent when in 2015 the majority seats held (144 seats) UPFA Prime Minister Mr. D.M. Jayaratne was ousted by replacing him with Ranil Wickremasinghe who had only 41 seats. She also questions about West’s silence on the postponement of local government

elections for over 3 years, and delays in holding Provincial Council elections, all under the Premiership of Ranil Wickremasinghe, and the reason for their remaining silent, and where their gospel of responsibility to protect” was when Germany was unable to form a government for 5 months, when Belgium had no government for almost 2 years (541 days), and Northern Ireland was without government for even longer? She also demands an explanation from the Western brigand over their silence on the Central Bank-Perpetual Treasuries bond scams, the biggest ever corruption scandal of Sri Lanka under Ranil Wickremasinghe’s Premiership and in which his close ally r Arjuna Mahendran, has been held responsible and is evading arrest?

What is the explanation for the West’s silence on the Central Bank-Perpetual Treasuries bond scams under Ranil Wickremasinghe’s Premiership when he was Minister in charge of the Central Bank and for which his close ally, Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran, has been held responsible and is evading arrest? Why has there been no call for credible investigations by the West on information of a plot to assassinate the President and

Gotabaya Rajapaksa, a plot in which a Cabinet Minister is allegedly involved?

 

Tamara emphasizes that the special meeting’ between the ousted Prime Minister and the selected group of diplomats was not only a violation of the established rules for foreign envoys for communication with the host country. The meeting as well as subsequent declarations can be construed as a concerted and deliberate act against the Head of State, openly challenging the authority vested in the President by the people, interfering in internal political processes, and violating Sri Lanka’s sovereignty

The progeny of Kalu Sudha’s, Kalu Jayasuriya as per a report filed by Ada Derana said held a meeting on 31st October  with UN Resident Coordinator in Sri Lanka Hanaa Singer, Ambassador for the EU Tung-Lai Margue, British High Commissioner James Dauris, Canadian Ambassador David McKinnon and German Ambassador John Rohde and engaged in a special discussion on the current political situation in Sri Lanka and the delegates had expressed their concern over the unexpected political transformation and pointed out the adverse consequences Sri Lanka may face due to this situation and urged them to delay any action against Sri Lanka for the time being.  The report also said that the speaker also met a

group of representatives from civil organizations also met with the Speaker and handed over an online petition urging to re-establish democracy by convening the parliament and requesting state officials no to follow any illegal orders.

A News in Asia report said that Jayasuriya warned that there would be a ‘huge bloodbath’ in the country d if the present political crisis is taken out to the streets. He has said that there had been two deaths, some media institutions have been illegally taken over and some people have been prevented from going to work.

Commenting about Jayasuriya’s purported attempts to summon the Parliament the former Speaker and UNP member Mr. Joseph Michael Perera said that the Speaker has no power to convene Parliament when it had been prorogued by the President. Former Law College Principal and Constitutional Lawyer President’s Counsel Dr. Jayatissa de Costa also affirmed this stand.

Following the Speaker’s meeting with Western Diplomats Joker Rajitha Senaratne the man who claimed that he saw by his own eyes Mr. Namal Rajapaksa carrying sacks stuffed with U.S. Dollars (Mangala’s imaginary 18.5 Billion U.S. Dollars) om his shoulders to a Dubai Bank has claimed that there will be sanctions against Sri Lanka from the Western nations.  Many political analysts have dismissed stupide Ranjith’s statement as childish and baseless.

Meanwhile, Sri Lankans devoid of party, colour, ethnic and religious affiliations and all those who have at least an iota of patriotism should vehemently condemn the attempt made by Ranil to mislead the international community to show that there was a civil war situation Sri Lanka warranting deployment of International Peace Keeping Forces in the country.  Even after he was ousted from the post of Prime Minister Mr. Ranil Wickremasinghe has using a letterhead of the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka” written a letter to the Ambassadors on 27th October, saying that President Maithripala Siris4na has unconstitutionally appointed the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka when he is in office as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.

The letter says that as per the 19th amendment to the constitution the President does not have the power to dismiss a Prime Minister when he holds the majority and that it is an unconstitutional action by the President and he was requesting their cooperation on this and on the possibility of deploying International Peace Keeping Forces in the country to protect peace and civic rights The letter also requests to consider this matter at their mercy and let him know their decision.  The letter has been signed by Ranil Wickremasinghe as Prime Minister and copies of the letter have been sent to Ambassador of the United States in Sri Lanka, British High Commissioner in Sri Lanka and to French, German, Norwegian and Australian Ambassadors in Colombo.  For this highly despicable anti national act he should be charged for high treason. His head should be half shaved and deported to a western country.

    Hi Nizam, if you happen to be a Muslim in India it is more likely you will be beaten to death by the Cow Vigilantes.

    . These days West does not mean a thing. When it comes to our affairs it is India and Indians around the world who are manipulating the West against us.
    In Australia India and Indians have a lot of power and influence.
    In the last byelection in Wentworth, Sydney an Indian did contest for the government and lost. If he won an Indian would have had the balance of power in the country.
    It is not the West we should worry and focus on.
    It is the Indians in the West and India who are controlling us.
