JVP seem to be misinformed about the International
Velusumana JSBI for LankaWeb.
The latest 123 India News report says that the JVP has intentions of
taking the President of Sri Lanka to the International Tribunal in the
Hague for her decision to prorogue Parliament and if this report is
in any way accurate, they should be informed that the International
Tribunal does not address grievances of disgruntled individual political
parties but is there for the sole purpose of meting out justice to perpetrators
of War Crimes against Humanity and Contravention of the International
Code of Justice.
The actions of the President of Sri Lanka are perfectly legal and is
laid out in the Constitution of Sri Lanka and she has exercised her
right to prevent insurrection and anarchy within the country which the
JVP themselves were involved in, in the not too distant history of the
Nation in case they have forgotten.
They should forget their assumed role of 'Kingmakers' which certain
misguided entities have falsely dubbed them and get on with progressive
contributions towards National Unity rather than attempt to tarnish
the Government's image in a manner similar to their other opposition
allies 'hell bent' in their anti-Governmental campaigns.
Any political group at this juncture of the State of Affairs in Sri
Lanka who use the term Democracy loosely, as a crutch to serve their
own means while attempting to drag down a Democratically Elected Government
are being totally hypocritical and distancing themselves from reality,
as their modus operandi has little or no relevance to Democracy, but
instead seem to be contradicting its very principles while leaning towards
the objectives of the Government's main dilema the LTTE and their supporters.
Any action presented to the International Tribunal in the Hage in this
token therefore would probably be viewed with derision and a negative
response if any as the credibility rating of the Sri Lankan Government
is based of the principles of Democracy and the mandate of the people
which its opponents are presently trying to ursurp and overturn.Whereas
the Government is merely trying to set right the equation, by seeking
a referendum on certain aspects of the Constitution relative to the
weak proxies of electoral percentages which are somewhat lopsided. Are
these what the opposition parties including the JVP term undemocratic
If one considers the principle of cause and effect as applied to the
current situation in Sri Lanaka, everything points to the ultimate disruption
of Democracy by the LTTE and its cohorts, the very debacle the Government
is trying to prevent and The International Tribunal would more than
likely view this as paramount to the continuation of Sri Lanka as the
world knows it, rather than denounce the actions of the President based
on the bleatings of a few misguided lambs.
Democracy is alive and well in Sri Lanka and will never be replaced
by anarchy,insurrection and selfishly motivated oppression and could
do with a surge of patriotic National Unity, an adage the International
Tribunal will probably agree with.
