AI bias Impartial investigation needed.
Due to the biased nature of AI , an impartial investigation is needed
to determine the sources of income of AI and also how the money is spent.
When terrorists are killing innocent women and children indiscriminately,
you do not see that on the front page of the AI Web site. Instead you
see a picture showing a protest on press freedom. To majority of Sri
Lankans, the main issue affecting them is the violation of Human rights
by Tamil Tiger terrorists. Press freedom is a secondary issue. It appears
that AI has forgotten what Human rights are all about. Is it because
AI want to shield their terrorist darlings that, they ignore terrorism
that has recently killed defenceless women and children (e.g. deaths
caused by the Railway station and Dambulla bombings) and show lack of
press freedom in Sri Lanka instead. This is again propaganda against
If there was genuine lack of press freedom or lack of freedom of expression
in Sri Lanka , many would protest. I would be the first in the queue
as I value press freedom and freedom of expression.
AI should be concerned about Human rights violations by terrorists
and funding of terrorists that violate Human rights. Any HR organisation
should pay attention to the funding of terrorists as, if the funding
is cut off, terrorists will not be able to operate. AI has been extremely
silent on massive violations of human rights by LTTE and they have done
nothing to stop the fund raising by LTTE. This expose the biased nature
of AI. Further, it appears that AI wants conflicts to continue, as conflicts
would produce a market for the Human rights product of
AI. They appear to be after funding, to pay for the jollies
of some officials.
If they have not visited Sri Lanka, how did they get their biased information.
I trust straight from the LTTE propaganda arm.
Why is AI silent on the present and past gross violations of human
rights by LTTE.?
Further, is is important to find out how decisions are made by AI.
It appears that AI only read LTTE propaganda material and ignores everything
AI bias in favour of LTTE and against GoSL is widely published in media.
If AI is to have any credibility in Sri Lanka, then AI need to stop
being anti GoSL and pro LTTE and deal with facts. Many in Sri Lanka
believe that AI is a vicious , racist neo colonialist organisation out
to take revenge on Sri Lanka. AI need to listen to critics and also
learn to sift LTTE propaganda from facts, to regain its credibility.
The victims of AIs malicious campaign against GoSL, are the
poor defenceless Sinhalese peasants. It is LTTE that gain from AIs
malicious campaign against Sri Lanka.
AI appear to have no interests in human rights. It is time to stop
misleading the world and start fresh. Leave your cricket ball campaign
behind and move forward to protect human rights rather than the rights
of terrorists to kill.
An organisation such as AI, which is biased against Sri Lanka, that
has attempted to destabilise Sri Lanka should not be allowed in Sri
Lanka, until they show that they are not biased. Evidence not only show
that they are biased, evidence shows that they are malicious, revenge
seeking organisation that has ganged up against Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka had enough of terrorists and their sympathisers such as AI.

This image is outrageous. When many civilians, over (100 ) have been
killed in the recent past by LTTE, AI has decided that press freedom
is more important than right to life.
Unedited remarks on AI, in the media (Daily Mirror ) are given below.
Hey Irene, I thnik you have forgotten wee bit O history. People before
you in the likes of John Westlake's "Chapters on the Principles
of International Law" advised that the 'uncivilized' sections of
the globe should be annexed and occupied by the 'civilized' and advanced
powers. So take your Neo-Imperialist B.S. somewhere else (I tend to
suggest Iraq, Agghanistan ot Gitmo) Posted By: Darshan
Mam, So AI have made all previous statements without visiting? If so
then all those were mere openions and NOT facts. Posted By: Rajiv
hay MADAM Go and Talk about your human rights in Iraq and Gaza Strip
These people are not uttering a single word against world powers Posted

Khan come from. Tell her to look in her backyard first Posted By: Ronald
Amnesty International, can you please shut up & mind your own business.
As Sri Lankan we all know your biasness towards LTTE. By the way what's
your commence about the bomb blast in Petta station? Isn't it a violation
of human rights huh? Posted By: Aman
We Sri Lankans do not need your advice on how to protect human rights.
First get rid of your organisations biasness towards terrorists in Sri
Lanka. Posted By: A.A.M.NIZAM-MATARA
Not only AI all the major NGO who cry at government offensive keep
silent or pretend not to heard when LTTE Terrorist kill innocent. Because
they want save their bacon and to be in the terrorists good book.

Amnesty International is biased. In western Universities it has exhibitions,
and al those exhibitions are communist or developing countries. IT never
had had a demonstration, exhibition against any country friendly to
the Western world. But sponsors of it knows how to hire people, so the
unsuspecting spectators believe that AI is honest and true. Mrs. KHAN
does not want to understand that AI is a big conspiracy. They are that
true, and has has become a part of that. Why she does not question her
own organization's work world-wide.

Mr.Kheliya is right, Amnesty international members are in various payroll....why
they silent on the migrant workers in Middle-east. Does she know only
country in the world who puts ban on Labour contract for no reason and
asking to pay (Official bribe) to remove it. Posted By: James
