Dear Hugh ,

HRLC is one of the mob of 8 that is supporting the screening of ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-The killing fieldsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ crap to be shown in some capital cities in Australia. They are part of the Racist Group that is trying to punish Sri Lanka for defying the crumbling ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Anglo-American Empire and ending the terrorist war. The crimes committed by the LTTE have been totally forgiven by the Christian Church and the so called ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-International CommunityƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ President Mahinda Rajapaksa of Sri Lanka ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ is the Prodigal Son of the West and has to be punished at all costs. (similar to Presidents Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein) He gave the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚Right to LifeƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ to 20 million or more Sri Lankans by ending a 30 year terrorist war. After the 18th of May 2009, every Sri Lankan can leave his/her ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ house and be sure of returning safely. This guarantee was not there for 30 years before that date. He also liberated close to 300,000 Sri Lankans who were under the Jackboot of LTTE and its leaders.

If ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-human rightsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ is the issue here, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ then look no further than the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Champions of Human RightsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  That is where you guys have to ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…” Invest in principled human rights leadershipƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢

Also, closer to home, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ what ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-human rightsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ have the real owners of Australia got? They are being killed in custody and destroyed before your very eyes. They have not even got a mention in the so called ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-ConstitutionƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ of Australia. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ I challenge HRLC(or any one of the other 7 who support the Australian Tamil Congress) to screen the documentaries made by our very own investigative journalist John Pilger ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ titled ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-The First AustraliansƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ I am sure you would not take up this challenge. The difference between these parties (the ATC and the First Australians) is that the First Australians do not have the cash to splash, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ but the ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ATC has.

ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Investing in principled human rights leadershipƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ by ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ your mob is like the Catholic Church investigating its clergy for Paedophilia. The real ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-investmentƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ here is by the Australian Tamil Congress. I am sure plenty of $$ have been ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”investedƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ in making this ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ crap(ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-The killing fieldsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ by Callum Macrae) and in all other interested parties trying to propagate the garbage. The ordinary citizens of Jaffna do not want any of this rubbish but to get on with day-to-day life. Their children now carry school books and not assault rifles. Almost four years have passed since the last IED exploded in Sri Lanka … ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ but ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Vultures of War still have not lost their taste for carrion. The one big loss to the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-International CommunityƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ is that the 30 year long sale of Arms and Ammunition has suddenly dried up. What a pity that no one is being killed there now!!!

Come on Hugh, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ if your organization is truly ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-PrincipledƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ then you have plenty of work to do, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ before you pick on Sri Lanka. Is Sri Lanka the only country in the world that is supposed to have committed ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-human rights violationsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ ?? (U.S Congressman Eni F.H.Faleomavaega – February 26, 2013 ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ – ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-I have mentioned in my statement about the double standards that we are applying in as far as violation of Human Rights and the sense that I have is why is the most powerful country in the world picking on a small little country like Sri Lanka– the size of West Virginia…. ….ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  In Vietnam Mr. Secretary, letƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s ask the tens and thousands of women and children innocent civilians that we exposed to Agent Orange , when we were there for the ten year period . LetƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s ask the people in Laos and Cambodia for the six million pounds of cluster bombs we dropped there, and these countered never declared war on us…..Where is the consistency in our standards as far as Human Rights are concerned ??)

Hugh, Start at the beginning ( a very good place to start) by investigating just a few of the horrible crimes mentioned below

  1. The use of ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Agent OrangeƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ in the Vietnam war.(Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971 estimates 400,000 people were killed or maimed, and 500,000 children born with birth defects as a result of its use.[1] The Red Cross of Vietnam estimates that up to 1 million people are disabled or have health problems due to Agent Orange.[2] – ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Source Wikipedia)
  2. The Mi Lai massacre. (The My Lai Massacre was the Vietnam War mass murder of between 347 and 504 unarmed civilians in South Vietnam on March 16, 1968, by United States Army soldiers of “Charlie” Company of 1st Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment, 11th Brigade of the Americal Division. Victims included women, men, children, and infants. Some of the women were gang-raped and their bodies were later found to be mutilated[2] and many women were allegedly raped prior to the killings.[3] While 26 U.S. soldiers were initially charged with criminal offenses for their actions at MƒÆ’‚¡ƒ”š‚»ƒ”š‚¹ Lai, only Second Lieutenant William Calley, a platoon leader in Charlie Company, was convicted. Found guilty of killing 22 villagers, he was originally given a life sentence, but only served three and a half years under house arrest. – ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Source Wikipedia)
  3. Paedophilia in the Catholic Church worldwide. (The Catholic sex abuse cases are a series of convictions, trials and investigations into allegations of child sexual abuse crimes committed by Catholic priests, nuns and members of Roman Catholic orders against children as young as 3 years old with the majority between the ages of 11 and 14 Sexual abuse of children under the age of consent by priests receives significant media and public attention in Canada, Ireland, the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Belgium, France, Germany and Australia, while cases have been reported throughout the world.[7] Many of the cases span several decades and are brought forward years after the abuse occurred. Since 1995, over one hundred priests from various parts of Australia were convicted of sexual abuse.[27]ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ – ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Source Wikipedia)
  4. The GƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚² DƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚ i Massacre ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ (The GƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚² DƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚ i Mssacre, known in Vietnam as the BƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚¬nh An Massacre[3] was a massacre conducted by the ROK Capital Division of the South Korean Army on 26 February 1966 of unarmed citizens in GƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚² DƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚ i hamlet, in BƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚¬nh An commune, TƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚¢y SƒÆ’- ƒ”š‚¡n District (today TƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚¢y Vinh District) of Binh Dinh Province in South Vietnam.[1] The Capital Division troops killed 380 villagers within an hour.[1][2] -Source Wikipedia)ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 
  5. Bogside Massacre ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ (Bloody Sunday – sometimes called the Bogside Massacre[3]ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚was an incident on 30 January 1972 in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland, in which 26 unarmed civil-rights protesters and bystanders were shot by soldiers of the British Army. Thirteen males, seven of whom were teenagers, died immediately or soon after, while the death of another man four-and-a-half months later was attributed to the injuries he received on that day. Two protesters were also injured when they were run down by army vehicles.[4] Five of those wounded were shot in the back.[5] The incident occurred during a Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association march; the soldiers involved were members of the First Battalion of the Parachute Regiment – Source Wikipedia)

I could give you examples of atrocities committed by the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Champions of Human RightsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ to fill many reams of paper but that is not my intention. Mentioned above is but a miniscule sample of the subject matter. If your organization is a ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-PrincipledƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ one, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ then start at the beginning, but if you are ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-singing for your supperƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ then it becomes impossible. If you do, you will be sent home immediately.

I will be the first one to support you, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ if your approach to the problem is PRINCIPLED.

Take care.

Cheers and all the best,

Gyan de Mel

    Sri Lanka is willing to stand in queue at the rear end of the long line of peoples who are accused of human rights violations and to stand trial. However to be fair the process need to start from the beginning. When all the other significant human rights violations are investigated and the perpetrators brought to justice, Sri Lanka is willing to stand trial and be judged accordingly and definitely not before.

    Let us see in all fairness how Britain, US, France, Holland, Spain and Portugal – all Western Christian Countries who are the main proponents of Democracy, Human Rights and Universal Justice stand and come clean in the process.

    Let the whole world see there is fairness in the application of the laws.

    First of all Sri lanka should prosecute Prabhakaran and sentence to death.
    Sir lanka should also procsecute Gandhi’s for creating terrorism.
