Australian ICJ joins Tamil Tiger Rump to Stir Up New Allegations Against Sri Lanka

 The Tamil Tiger rump in Australia still smarting after the 2009 defeat of the internationally designated terrorist group called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) whom they funded over the last quarter century in the hope of establishing a mono-ethnic, racist Tamil state called “Eelam”, in the north and east of Sri Lanka encompassing 1/3rd of the land spread over 2/3rd of the coastline for resident Tamils numbering less than 4% of the island’s population, partnered with the Australian ICJ have churned up new allegations with intent to embarrass Sri Lanka just before the Commonwealth Heads of Government hold their bi-annual meeting in Perth.

 All other preceding allegations made by various INGO, the UNSG’s Darusman Panel, Channel 4, Gordon Weiss the former UN spokesperson in Colombo, etc. which have been based on hearsay coming from second, third, or fourth hand sources, added to which you have the spin of the Tamil translators, remain unsubstantiated, as no verifiable evidence that could be presented to a court has been forthcoming thus far. 

 Is Meena Krishnamoorthy a Credible Witness?

The source of the present allegations come from an Australian resident of Sri Lankan Tamil origin named Meena Krishnamoorthy, who claims she visited Sri Lanka to learn Tamil and became a witness to atrocities committed by the Sri Lankan Army against the civilian population like herself during the latter stages of the military action in 2009.  She has obviously trained in dance and drama as the ABC video shows, and been well coached and rehearsed by the Tiger propagandists to come up with a song and dance of her allegations of shelling of an unnamed hospital where her friend a lady doctor is said to have died, and also discovering a new sound of gun fire which was identified as cannon fire which she assumed was directed by the Sri Lankan Navy towards civilians standing on the beach at Puthumatalan, to which the Tiger fighters retreated along with the remaining civilians that were herded and brought there to form a human shield. 

 It is indeed strange that Meena Krishnamoorthy waited two and a half years after the conclusion of the hostilities to come up with her allegations, especially when several leading INGO such as the ICG, HRW, Amnesty, Channel 4,and the UNSG’s Darusman Panel were loudly calling for such accounts, to instead bring up her stories just before the CHOGM sessions commenced in Australia in 2011.  It is also strange that she did not have opportunities to learn Tamil, because all Tamil households converse mainly in Tamil, whilst Tamil expat communities have set up special classes for teaching Tamil to their children wherever they live, that she decided to leave to Sri Lanka and reside in the Vanni region controlled by the LTTE terrorists midst the ongoing hostilities instead of staying in the capital city of Colombo where the Tamils comprise a 41% majority, for this purpose. 

 Another interesting feature is that she is the only one to allege that the displaced civilians were being targeted with cannon fire by Sri Lankan Naval vessels out at sea.  She says she heard the sound which others identified for her as cannon fire, and she did not ascertain the direction from which it came but assumed it was from the Sri Lankan Navy vessels and not those operated by the Sea Tigers who had similar weapons mounted on their craft.  This latter allegation has been concocted for the specific purpose of turning on the heat on Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to Australia, Admiral Thisara Samarasinghe who was in charge of northern naval operations during the military action to rid the country of three decades Tamil Tiger terrorism

 Meena’s background is now coming to the surface: 

Now it appears that Meena Krishnamoorthy like the other woman Damilvany Gnanakumar from the UK who became a part narrator in the Channel 4 video, are both LTTE activists belonging to the die hard Tamil Youth Organization (TYO) who closely worked with Castro, the notorious head of LTTE International Network based in Vanni.  The TYO is actively engaged in propaganda, fundraising, procurement of arms and ammunition and other activities, whose university educated members in Canada were earlier nabbed by the FBI when they sought to purchase SAM missiles, buy design for a submarine and bribe a federal official to have the LTTE delisted in the USA. Intelligence reports have now pointed out that she too had undergone military training for six months in an LTTE base in Muthaiyankaddu, and that she is not the innocent young miss to went to the Vanni to learn Tamil and look after poor orphan babies..

 Meena Krishnamoorthy also claimed to have initially volunteered her services at an orphanage in the Vanni and later assisted the medical officers in dispensing care.  Orphanages have been set up by the LTTE, in order to raise funds through its supposedly humanitarian wing called the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO), which is a funnel for siphoning funds for its terrorist warfare.  Nirupama Subramaniam writing in the Frontline Magazine of December 20, 2001, called it the farm where the LTTE’s Baby Brigade is raised.  Christian Worker also reported sometime back that the Chencholai Homes were used for brainwashing children to become Black Tiger Suicide Bombers who would sacrifice their lives for the cause of “Eelam”.  Amy Walden of the New York Times who visited one of these so called orphanages was not given access to the adolescent children at the centre. She wrote, ” It certainly is not a Summer Camp where school girls gather to have fun and learn useful life skills.” 

 Meena Krishnamoorthy also said that she met her life’s partner, a LTTE cadre/official whom she married while in the LTTE controlled Vanni.  It is a known dictum of Late Velupillai. Prabhakaran, the failed leader of the LTTE, that LTTE cadres can only marry someone from the women cadres of the outfit. Was that particular LTTE official given any exception to the rule by the dictatorial head, or was Meena an activist cadre who complied with the existing rules.  She certainly did not strike as the innocent Australian girl who travelled to the Tamil Tiger terrorist controlled Vanni to learn Tamil, be the nightingale that cared for the orphans and helped with the sick and injured, where she falls in love and meets her life’s partner whom she marries only to have her dreams shattered by the unexpected tragedies that she never expected to experience, as the Tigers’ promise of victory and an independent “Eelam” state was not to be.

 ICJ headed by the controversial John Dowd:

The Chairman of the Australian ICJ, the portly John Dowd and his organization has produced a 500 page document of allegations of war  against Sri Lanka and the present High Commissioner Admiral Thisara Samarasinghe based on well rehearsed yarns spun by this single witness named Meena Krishnamoorthy, who through her involvement in the activities of the LTTE terrorists is a highly prejudiced source.  The picture shows the ICJ President John Dowd addressing a propaganda meeting of the Tamil Eelam Lobby with a portrait of the megalomaniacal terror leader Velupillai Prabhakaran in the background.   The ICJ is risking their credibility by endorsing the dubious claims of a single witness whose background has not been verified

but accepting her accusations at face value.  The ICJ is playing into the hands of the pro-LTTE rump with bags of illicitly earned money through extortion, credit card scams, human and narcotics smuggling, gun running, etc., to appease their vengeful plans to get Sri Lanka by whatever means for having shattered their dream of a separate state called “Eelam”, which evaporated on the banks of the Nandikadal Lagoon on May 18, 2009, following the defeat of their so called invincible heroic Tamil Tiger forces along with the Black Tiger Suicide Squads.   

 Yours sincerely,

 Mahinda Gunasekera

Honorary President
