Dear Madam,

I have written to you already regarding your vindictiveness towards Sri Lanka. As a Tamil from South Africa you probably feel that you can use your current position to continue to harrass Sri Lanka after the LTTE were defeated militarily. LTTE supporters all over the world are now waging a concerted propaganda war against Sri Lanka and reading your latest statement made on June 4, it appears that you are part of that LTTE effort. Given that the Tamils in South AFrica have provided the money to buy planes for the LTTE and supported the LTTE terrorists of Sri Lanka by demonstrations to save the terrorist leader, your continued efforts to indicte Sri Lanka appear to indicate that you have a personal grudge against Sri Lanka.

I hope you will heed the advice given to you by the Indian Ambassador to Geneva, Mr. G.
Achamkulangare who made the following statement on June 5,2009. “it will be prudent to adhere to the outcome of the special session and be sensitive to the concerns expressed already, rather than take a position on contested proposals or controversial issues and ideas, which did not find eventual acceptance in the outcome of the special session.” You did call for the special session and got it. Why can you not accept the decision of the members who made their views known and voted? He further stated, “it would be extremely unfortunate, if the inter-governmental decisions adopted by the human rights council, were to be ignored or set aside, and the High Commissioner and/or her office were to misinterpret them or willfully neglect them, or supersede them according to their convenience or in accordance with the agenda of some states, or unrepresentative or unaccountable organizations, or to pursue their own agenda”. Please do not dismiss his opinions as he represents your homeland India of which Tamil Nadu is an important state. It can therefore be argued that the majority of Tamils, millions of them in fact, disagree with you.

Your continued efforts against Sri Lanka at the behest of the colonial masters does not look good for you in that it may give the impression that you still have the colonial mindset and do what the colinial masters request – the countries who are backing you are Britain (no longer great), the EU, Ireland and France. As many have advised you, if you can set the guidelines, investigate the conduct of Britain, France, the U.S. and other members of the European Union as well as establish the penalties based on the results of those investigations and conclusions, then and only then, will there be a case for you to start investigations on Sri Lanka. As clearly stated by the Sri Lankan ambassador to Geneva on June 5,2009 if these countries set an example to Sri Lanka and submit their own conduct to so-called impartial or independent international inquiries of the sort that they have commended us, Sri Lanka would be ready to regard their suggestion with somewhat less contempt than it does at the moment.

Looking forward to not hearing from you again about investigations regarding Sri Lanka.

Yours truly,

    It is very clear that Ms. Navanetham Pillay who is the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights
    Geneva, Switzerland is not suitable to hold this post any longer and the 29 countries who voted for the Sri Lankan resolution should bring forward a motion to remove her from this important post. She has insulted the Soverieignity of these countries and made them look unimportant compared to the few Western powers she seems to think are important. She is suffering from a Colonial mindset and is not suitable to hold this post any longer.
