Now it is a question of reconciliation with the Tamils at any cost and for that it is possible the Sirisena –Ranil good governance may demand USA to investigate whether USA could extend the UNHuman rights violation, and even genocide calling for accountability of King Dutugemunu’s war against Elara the Cholan Tamil, as a USA resolution at the next UNHRSession in Geneva to be cosponsored by Sri Lanka.
It may be considered a conventional war under Geneva conventions. It could be a possibility with Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussain as the UN Commissioner of Huamn Rights and Obama’s State Department to pass a resolution to extend UN Human Rights to apply backwards to 161 BC. The question of King Dutugemunu’s presence is unnecessary as long as the benefit of the justice of a hybrid court could be made beneficial to the Tamils. If the USA wants it, it could do it in collaboration with Ranil Wickramasinghe-Chandrika and their yes Man Sirisena.
As people compare Mahinda Rajapakse to King Dutugemunu , and the Minister of Justice Wijedasa Rajapakse has already said that Sri Lanka does not belong to Sinhala, Ranil may be extremely pleased to ask his FCID to investigate the possibility of filing action against King Dutugemunu in absentia, just to humiliate Mahinda Rajapakse.
Making accusations against the former President Mahinda Rajapakse his family and every one connected to him closely or distantly and taking them before the FCID, the Commission of Bribery and Corruption, or the Presidential Commission of Investigation are a favourite pass-time of the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe and Maithripala Sirisena, it is most probable that they may give a try bringing accusations against King Dutugemunu , as Mahinda Rajapakse has been compared by a large number of Sinhala Buddhists to King Dutugemunu..
If that happens there will be yahapalanaya Ministers and Universitiy professors to sing hosannas to Maithripala Sirisena,and Ranil Wickramasinghe for their great achievement. We saw it happening on the 4 October, 2015 in a ITN political discussion(debate) Giraya.
The two yahapalanaya Ministers Mahinda Samarasinghe, Wijedasa Rajapakse and a Professor Terence Kulasinghe from the Peradeniya University, three persons despite the office they occupy, clueless about why USA and West are so full of admiration to Maithripala Sirisena of Sri Lanka shaking away his hand with so much of warmth, were singing hosannas in praise of Maithripala Sirisena.
The foolish men did not seem to know that hand shaking and enthusiasm for Sirisena, was for no other reason than to keep China and Russia away from the southern region. The yahapalanaya Ministers were smug faced about the reception Maithripala Sirisena receicved from the white European leaders , and the great honour Sirisena was given to sit at the high table for dinner with none other than the great Obama the black President of USA .
The yahapalanaya Ministers and the Professor who was full of praise to India, seem least able to understand that USA and the Western leaders were only celebrating the success they had in duping a foolish Prime Minister agreeing in Geneva to cosponsor a USA resolution that makes a joke of a Sovereign State surrendering its own sovereignty and sealing its fate of being a failed and subjugated State, to please USA and the West.
This yahapalanaya government in their attempt to take revenge from Mahinda Rajapakse taking even his personal physician to be grilled by Ranil Wickramasinghe’s FCID, (may soon take even his toilet cleaners), are ready to do any thing to please the USA and the West and make the people believe they have achieved great heights of diplomacy, praising themselves for having been accepted as the friends of the Whites and turning away the yellow.
In the mean time the Tamil diaspora is pleased as they have achieved which they have never dreamt of achieving under a Mahinda Rajapakse Government.
The Tamil diaspora knows how to play their cards. They do not want to show still that they are overjoyed with what has happened about the yahapalanaya government cosponsoring the USA resolution along with Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussain’s 225 page UN Report.
In an article in the Colombo Gazette of the 5th October,2015-Ex-LTTE Member Rudrakumaran calls resolution is a “Fudge” , it is reported”..... Rudrakumaran’s TGTE says the Human Rights Council, a state-centric institution, had passed a resolution last week noting that a credible justice process should include independent judicial and prosecutorial institutions led by individuals known for integrity and impartiality and further affirms in this regard the importance of participation in a Sri Lankan judicial mechanism, including the Special Counsel’s office, of Commonwealth and other foreign judges, defense lawyers, and authorized prosecutors and investigators.
“This Resolution is a fudge. It prioritizes the Sri Lankan Government’s obsession with controlling criminal proceedings over the victims’ rights to effective justice. Any reasonable observer knows that all criminal proceedings within the Sri Lankan justice system will be stymied by racial bias and political interference. The role of the Sri Lankan State in the mass crimes will be whitewashed,”
With all anti Sri Lanka Sinhala Buddhist and pro Tamil reconciliation activities taking place since the 17 August, 2015, with Maithripala Sirisen’s national government headed by Ranil Wickramasinghe in place , no one can say where they are going to stop pleasing the USA , the West and India.
With the proposed India Sri Lanka tunnel and Bridge projects and the CEPA Sri Lanka is doomed to be a part of the Tamil Nadu, and loose its identity for ever. That is what our Sinhala Buddhist voters wanted when they voted for a change from Mahinda Rajapakse Government and voted for Sirisena –Ranil-Chandrika Yahapalanaya.
Reports emanating from the Press Trust of India (PTI) state clearly that our Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe has had discussions with the Union (Central Government), Road Transport, Highway and Shipping Minister Nethin Gadkari on the proposed Indo Lanka Land Bridge on September 16, 2015. A further PTI report dated September 20, 2015, states that Secretary level talks between Sri Lanka and India are scheduled for October 2015 to take the Land Bridge Project forward.
In presenting the UN Report Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussain said “But this Council owes it to Sri Lankans – and to its own credibility – to ensure an accountability process that produces results, decisively moves beyond the failures of the past, and brings the deep institutional changes needed to guarantee non-recurrence,”
And Pablo de Greiff (UN Rapporteur) noted that to fully realize this potential Sri Lanka needs to work on parallel tracks. On the one hand, a deliberate process needs to be devised by which the country will move ahead towards a comprehensive transitional justice strategy addressing the manifold challenges the country is facing such as the in-depth reform of the justice system and the security sector (military, police, intelligences services included), the establishment of independent truth-seeking mechanisms, the design of a comprehensive reparation scheme to name a few.
Where were they when there was a thirty years of terrorism in Sri Lanka and what do they know about Sri Lanka as a whole without partitioning it on ethnic ground ?
