Sampathan of TNA has no right to be a Parliamentarian of the Sri Lankan Parliament nor has he the right to be a citizen of Sri Lanka.

TNA leader SampanthanƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s speech to the 14th annual ITAK convention at which he spoke of a Tamil Nation is in breach of the oath of ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ allegiance he had taken as a member of the Parliament of Sri Lanka ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ to uphold the Constitution of Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The Tamils in Sri Lanka are a community that makes up the Nation of Sri Lankans.

Sampanthan therefore does not ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ speak for the Tamils of Sri Lanka but as he says, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…- We are gathered here as the single most recognized political organization both here and abroad, which embodies the political aspirations of the Tamil people.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ He speaks for the Tamils who follow him and the pro-terrorist expatriate Tamils abroad. The political aspiration of the Tamil Community is not different to the aspirations of the people of other communities in Sri Lanka.

This man Sampanthan definitely has a different agenda from what the Tamil people of Sri Lanka have.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It is significant to quoteƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  from a report in the Sunday Observer of the June 17,2012. in which the CWC President and Deputy Minister of Economic Affairs Muthu Sivalingam hadƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  castigated TNA MP P.Sridharan over his remark that their struggle is also to redeem the plantation workers. The Deputy Minister Sivalingam had asked TNA, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…- to keep away from the plantation community as they live in peace and brotherhood amongƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  communities and could resolve theirƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  grievances, through negotiations with the government.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  He had added that the ruling UPFA Government has done much ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ for their socialƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  and economic uplift, therefore the CWCƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  does not want to be dragged into the so calledƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  TNA Struggle.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

Sampanthan and his TNA Cohorts are carryingƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  on a separatist struggle keeping in line with the aspirations of the dead terrorist Prabhakaran. Why should and for how long should the government allow this man Sampanthan to go on with anti Sri Lankan rhetoric in and out side Sri Lanka ?

My friend Stanley Perera from Australia had enough of the poisonousƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  salivation of Old Sampanthan and came to Sri Lanka with the determination of taking a class actionƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  against TNA.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  He was prepared to bear all expensesƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  for such a law suitƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  on his own.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  But when he madeƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  the proposal many patriots in the diasporaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  demandedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  participation in such a law suit.

Stanley though he wanted to go on with it on his own agreed to the proposal of the numerous patriots.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  He however wantedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  to inform the President Mahinda Rajapaksa of his intentionƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  and know his reactions before he took ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ further action. Not knowing the President, heƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  contacted people he thought were patriots who would support his cause as TNA isƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  causing far too much of damage to Sri LankaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  than the terrorists did for 30 long years. Stanley was not at all seeking any favours either from the President of Sri Lanka or from any member of his government.

He first contacted Wimal Weerawansa, the Minister of Construction Engineering, because he thought Weerawansa is a person who would support such a issue asƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  he had been in the fore front in the de-merging of North and East, and that he may perhaps be able to get the agreement of the President as he is close to the President.

But meeting Wimala Weerawansa was a disaster.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Though he had given Stanley an appointment, when he called on him in his office, he did not have the politeness to offer a seat to Stanley who is a respectable gentleman , very kind and well mannered.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Wimal Weerawansa was busy signing documents and without interrupting his work to receive the person who had come with an appointment to see him, heƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  merely asked him what he wanted.

Stanley sat in the vacant seat without being requested to do so and related to Wimal Weerawansa what his intentions were.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Wimal still busy reading and signing documents had asked him what Stanley wanted of him.

Stanley had said that he would like to know what the Presidents would say to such FR actionƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  against the TNA by a citizen of Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Then Wimal had looked at hisƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  watch and said that he has to attend to a manifestation and that he wouldƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  meetƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Stanley later.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Stanley had already sworn to himself never to see this man Wimal Weerawansa again as he knew that he is not the sort of man who will help him in the matter. Wimal Weerawansa was totally uninterested in about taking legal action against TNA.

Having been snubbed and discouraged he decided to see three ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ well known lawyers to get their advice.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They had ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ said the judiciary is corrupt and multicultural and multi religious and are political appointees.

One totally opposed taking legal action as he said the Judges of Sri Lanka are incapable of taking an independent decision as they are political appointees. The other said that it would be a long drawn case and one has to collect all the news paper reports of statements made by Sampanthan and the TNA MPs on the Tamil issue and criticisms of the Government ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ during the last 15 years, which wouldƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  be necessary to prove their disloyalty and their determination to set up a separate Eelam State.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The latterƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  had spoke ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  the unpopularity of theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  President, but had said that in the absence of one suitable to replace him he will vote for him even though he does not like him.

They had however proposed that it is better to organise public campaigns and manifestationsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  against the TNA MPs and their anti Sri Lanka rhetorics to create a popular support forƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  legal action against them.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  He had contacted the JHU MP Gamanpila and spoken to him and he too had supported public manifestationsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  rather than a legal action.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  But he was also too busy at that moment to give him a hand in the matter.

Then Stanley had contacted ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ a close friend of Mr.Basil Rajapakse.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  He had been told that Basil Rajapakse thought it was a good idea but could not give Stanley an appointment as he too was busy at that moment.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  But his contact had promised an interview with Basil as soon as it would be possible.

Now it was nearly three months since Stanley was in Sri Lanka and he had not been able to take any positive measures vis ƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚  vis his intention to file a class action against the TNA

He was not able to meet Basil Rajapakse, andƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  time was up for him to get back disappointedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  as no body high up in the government and the lawyers who write knowingly of matters were unable at least to help some one outside to takeƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  legal action against the TNA which has no right to represent the Tamil people of Sri Lanka in the Parliament ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ to which they have scant respect.

Stanley says, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…- Two to three Ministers I spoke to were not interested or did’nt know what IƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ was talking about.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The ignorant politicians were clueless.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They are more interested in carrying on as usual their corrupt activities,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  making hay while the sun still shines.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  At one stage I thought that the politicians and the people who I spoke to were wondering what the bƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦dy heck I am doing here ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ instead of staying where I was, and ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ they probably ask where the hell ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ I was during the war.

I am thoroughly disgusted and disappointed.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

    One day once the final Peelam war was concluded, Ananda sangaree, while talking to the Radio, said that their call for a separate state at the beginning was just politics. But, they took that politics far beyond just a call and ended with a hugh destruction. Thirty five years violence is too much for a few statements that were meant to, as they say, fool tamils politically.

    Now, Tamils knowingly do that this time again. Some Tamil writers explained as something negligible.

    Tamils use destructive politics should be stopped. Exactly, the same way that Tamils make a big mountain out of a mole-hill, we should take serious, should make Tamils stop and talk responsibly.

    I hope and wish the ruling Sinhala politicians have a bigger picture which we’re not privy to at this moment, let us cultivate a little more patience for time to reveal the greatness of MR’s clan!

    Personally, with due respect, i think Stanley had approached this matter wrongly and approaching the ministers and getting their “feel” on this is not important, like Nike’ advertisement promotes “Just do it”.

  3. Dham Says:

    Thank you Charles for explaining what happened to Stanley’s efforts.
    I can understand his frustration.
    I hope FR action by Jayantha will suceed as it seems this brainless Sakkilipanthan really has very clearly has crossed the line. If this cannot be won, then there is no justice systme in Sri lanka.

    What I like in Rajapakse is he never says he will get rid of corruption. Nevertheless UNPiers are joining TNA devils and with international barbarians helping, somehow will win the next eletion unless maharaja wakes up.

    I know a man who probably can help to get a discussion with Chamal. Let us see how.

  4. dhane Says:

    It is proven that the unpopularity of the President MR becoming more & more faster than anybody think. But neither Ranil or SF could match MR up today.
    In the absence of one suitable to replace MR people are compelled to vote for him even though people does not like him and as no alternative. But that does not mean people like MR or his Ministers. But if situation does not improves quickly our peace won in 2009 will be fade away. If TNA & other separatism not eliminate or cut off before become another LTTE better act soon.
    Thank you Charles for explaining what happened to Stanley’s efforts of class action. Hope Stanley will continue to contribute with his good comments without disappointing.
    Take it easy Stanley its winter in Melbourne for you & me.

  5. Sri Rohana Says:

    Thanks Charles, to bring the embarrassing situation faced by Stanley. He didn’t go for any personal benefit but his mission is for Sri Lanka and against racist tamil expansionism.
    We have to defeat tamil racism unconditionally and it should not delay for any reason. Some thinks in 2009 May, we defeated tamil racism. It’s not true we defeated only tamil racists military wing in 2009. But we have not yet defeated the tamil racism. Global tamil racism is still active in Sri Lanka, tamil country (tamil nadu), U.S.A, U.K, Canada, Europe and Australia.
    To paralyze global tamil racism we have to take a legal action against racist tamil political parties in Sri Lanka as Stanley tried. We have to act on tamil racism in Sri Lanka without fail. Expel them from parliament is not the solution as J.R did in 1980’. Within the legal frame work, have to force them to give up separatism and eelam.
    Stanley had a vision but it is sorry to hear how he was treated by Sri Lankans.

  6. AnuD Says:

    Amazing politicians. It is their employment. So, this proves very well what we think about politicians. Sampanthan cheat Tamils. So, do Sinhala politicians.

  7. AnuD Says:

    Charles, in this article says, how politicized,how multi-cultural and multi- religious the judiciary is. President Rajapakse had said, how Muslim mosques had been built in Lands owned by the Mahanuwara Temple of the Tooth relic. Some Academics aka Intellectuals with Bishops and the Church are very very vocal about implementing the LLRC, particularly Religious issues. Again, some journalists say even Norocholai like power plants were not allowed to built because the Church did not want it there. I remember how muslims were jumping up down about the Dambulla incidence.

    Amidst politicians talk a lot about Buddhist culture in Sri Lanka, I am wondering whether the Sinhala-Buddhists in Sri Lanka have any Rights as the majority culture and the civilization.

    Some one else also talked about the Sri Lankan govt being Neo-liberal.

  8. Sunil Mahattaya Says:

    This is typical of the apathy of some politicians in Sri Lanka today particularly some at Ministerial level.Their bourgeoisie atttude defeats the concept of what they were elected to do in the first place. “Signing papers and keeping appointments” in deference to an issue as important as the one Stanley was trying to invite attention to ~ my foot! It seems as though certain GOSL representatives seem to palaver to the TNA for some mysterious reason instead of going flat out to incarcerate them with sufficient grounds to do so. Either this or they are playing the TNA at the end of a string which could be a dangerous game.The attitude of the likes of Weerawansa is shameful especially when considering the objectives of Mr. Stanley Perera so closely linked to true patriotism and a genuine love for his Motherland.Indeed some politicos in Sri Lanka are there for the ride and to line their pockets which is common knowledge in Sri Lanka today.Hopefully the President will resolve the related issues using his own judgement and admonish the likes of Weerawansa and most importantly deal with blackguards like Sampanthan and Anandasagaree who truly deserve to be brought to book for a breach of not only International Law but attempting to ursurp Sri Lanka’s Sovereignity and Territorial Integrity!”
    That ” Sampathan of TNA has no right to be a Parliamentarian of the Sri Lankan Parliament nor has he the right to be a citizen of Sri Lanka.” is dead right Charles and thanks for your most astute observations in your write up ! This also applies to a long list of culprits including some within the Parliament who display their entitlements to the same incarcerations at every Parliamentary session, who convert the term Political into Kalatipol it needs to be said!

    Something tells me Sambandan’s F(L)AG friend Run-NIL will come to his rescue.

    They always stood by one another.

    We HAVE TO win this case. Otherwise just imagine the courage it will give to TNA, TULF pieces of sh*t. They will light crackers and burn tyres, etc. After that they will go full strength to create trouble.

    IF TNA loses ALL its political activities should be banned. Not just the 13 unlucky Tamil parliamentarians.

    I personally know that hundreds of pro-LTTE businessmen earning BILLIONS of rupees in Colombo, Negombo, Kandy, etc. due to their TNA connections and parliamentary privileges they get. It is big business. TNA parliamentarians also use their privileges to help Tamil terrorists escape, get jobs, get land illegally, threaten others, etc.

    TNA newspaper Uthayan should be dismantled (to say the least) and banned. Security to TNA terrorists should be TOTALLY withdrawn so that people can “approach” them.

  10. Lorenzo Says:

    I too agree Stanley’s approach was wrong.

    We KNOW the inefficiency, etc. in SL. We have to work WITHIN that. We have to be PERSISTENT.

    Stanley should have shared the burden with a few others. BUGGED Weerawansa UNTIL he agrees or disagrees.

    Public protests are bloody foolish things to do. Every dog is protecting in SL people don’t know what they are protesting. Anyway nothing happens.

    TNA MUST be eliminated.

    If this action fails, we have to wait till UPFA LOSES a PC election. They will be in panic mode. Then we should approach them again and warn them we will work AGAINST them unless they help us ban TNA.

  11. Lorenzo Says:

    Are these details correct?

    NAME OF THE BENEFICIARY: – Sinhala Jathika Peramuna

  12. stanley perera Says:

    It was neither the likeness of the politicians nor that I am politically affiliated that I was seeking the backing of the MR govenment without making the government’s authorisation in public. I wanted it be strictly confidential. Although I havte the politicians anywhere in the world, I was compelled to do so as I firmly believe that the judiciary is corrupt and they dance to the tune of MR. Furthermore I keep my silence in order not to give an upperhand to the racist TNA. Any incumbent government would not support the majority Sinhalese as they fear to antoganise the Indians and the Americans and the west. Sri Lanka’s local issues are internationalised and the MR government is responding to the Americans and Indians. The majority Sinhalese are neglected. The reduction of the SL troops in Jaffna was as result of the Americans and Indian agitation. The spineless GoSL is trmbling in their boots when the Indian and Americans voice their concern on the local or internal affairs of the country. The GULP fellow jump in to the next available flight to answer in person to Hillary and the Indian Chief ministers. No matter what Pillai woman does against SL, MR will allow any mother’s son to come and see it for themselves. MR is becpming the puppet of India. Had I gone ahead of the class action against TNA without the consent of MR, I would have become an utter failure. Had I not backed off in three months, I would be embroiled in the litigation for many years to come. How many years did they fight out in the supreme court in the de-merger?

  13. AnuD Says:

    I think what happened to Stanley Perera is a good learning. Because of this ex- patriate Sinhala people should learn to force the govt, if needed via curt cases without involving in politics.

    Sampanthan represent only one side of Sri Lanka which tries to screw up Sinhale for Buddhists. Read around to see how some other websites promotes LLRC and religious and other equalities. In those some of the prominent Sinhala Academics and intellectuals are involved.

    The self-acclaimed Buddhist Wijedasa rajapakse wanted to ban Buddhist monks from the parliament. I think, he also worked because of the instructions of that group. Anyway, he is a lawyer who works for money.

  14. AnuD Says:

    As Herman expects we can not expect anything from SL-President or the ministers who scream patriotism to the loud speaker. We need to identify those who really can help.

    One clue is those people who work for Sri Lanka are despised by the opposition as well as by Tamils and, of course, the Church from behind.

  15. sena Says:

    look like government is in a role reversal – extremely tolerant to dissent by LTTE sympathizers and law breaking thugs and extremely intolerant to dissent by the public where it sends fact finding groups from defense department to check the organizers’ background and whereabouts
