A RESOLUTION PASSED BY CHOGM IN 2002 AT COOLUM AGAINST TERRORISM
Posted on September 27th, 2011

The Greens and its NSW parliamentary representative  Lee Rhianon moved a  motion on 20 Sept 2011 at the Senate  that Sri Lanka should be  suspended from Commonwealth. However this motion was debated and defeated by a majority of 39 (ayes9 and Noes 39)  and prudence prevailed. 

 For her  and Greens information this is what the CHOGM held on 2-5 March 2002 at Coolum, Sunshine Coast, Queensland  agreed upon . quote CHOGM leaders unanimously adopted a plan in which countries supporting terrorist groups would be expelled. They (CHOGM) decided there was no place for any member nation that aided, supported, instigated ,financed or harbored terrorists unquote.  

Well the fact remains that Sri Lanka was not supporting or harboring terrorists but defeated militarily the LTTE the most brutal terrorist outfit in the world. Sri Lanka should be congratulated and not humiliated by asking to suspend from Commonwealth .

Being the Sri Lankan position is as  same as the CHOGM resolution in defeating terrorism, the GREENS have the audacity to demand that Sri Lanka be suspended from Commonwealth. Isn’t it a joke?

    In that case Britain should be expelled from the Commonwealth for harbouring Anton Bala, Adel Bala, Shanthan, etc.!!

    Commonwealth is becoming a big joke by the day. It should be renamed, CLUB

    The LTTE functions openly in UK. When President Rajapaksa arrived in UK, 300 LTTE thugs, waving LTTE flags, took control of part of the airport. The Police and Airport officials went missing. Does Lee Riannon support expelling UK from Commonwelth. What a absurd notion. This Lee Riannon should learn bit of history and currents events of the World.
