Mr Asoka Weerasinghe says he and his organization is willing to thwart the shameless attempt of pro-LTTE elements to tarnish Sri Lanka’s and its Security forces’ image and to create awareness of what truly happened in the Wanni Humanitarian war.
According to Mr Weerasinghe, Rathika Sitsabaiesan in her interview with BBC’s Sinhala Service Sandeshaya has said that, she will take the initiative to form an All Party Parliamentary Committee (APPC) to look into alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka during the last stages of the war, and that she would get the APPC to come up with recommendations for the Canadian government over the UN expert panel report will be a priority.
Mr. Weerasinghe criticizes Rathika’s being disingenuous when she focuses on the UN (Darusman) Report on Sri Lanka which only dealt with the last phases of the war with LTTE terrorists by ignoring the fact that the Canadian Liberal government for 13 years were aiding and abetting this terrorist war in Sri Lanka which criminally killed scores of thousands of innocent unarmed civilians by the Tamil Tiger terrorists for the want of their mono-ethnic, racist, Tamil separate state, Eelam.
Mr. Weerasinghe reminds that 32 million Canadians, including Rathika, have a film of Sinhalese and Muslim blood on their palms as it were the Canadian Tamil Diaspora who collected two million dollars a month during the 13 long Liberal Party governing years, to pump funds to the blood thirsty LTTE terrorists to extend their killing fields in Sri Lanka.
Furthermore, Mr. Weerasinghe says MP Rathika could have instead considered asking the Canadian parliament to officially apologize to the Sinhalese and Muslim Sri Lankan-Canadian communities for supporting directly and indirectly this Tamil Tiger terrorist war, just like they did to Chinese-Canadian community, Canadian-Sikh community and Inuit community for the ill-treatments from the government to them occurred in the history. Also he suggests MP Rathika to initiate an investigation to prosecute the Tamils who collected the funds for this Tamil terrorist separatist war that killed over 100,000 people in Sri Lanka, and the Canadian parliamentarians who supported this crime to be prosecuted for War Crimes in an International War Crimes Court. If she has guts to do so, it will prove she is a genuine non-partisan democrat, an honest human rights advocate, an honest politician and an honest human being.
In his letter to PM, Mr Weerasinghe has reasoned out, why the parliament should not be tied up to form an All Party Parliamentary Committee to look into the UN (Darusman) Report on alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka as rookie NDP MP Rathika Sitsabaiesan has intentions to do.
->>>This UN (Darusman) Report is in no way an official UN Report sanctioned by the UN’s Security Council. It is an outside-UN report done by violating the authority under which the Secretary-General of the UN is expected to function under Article 100, Clause 1 of the UN Charter. Thus the request to appoint an All Party Parliamentary Committee to look into this Report should not be accommodated by the Conservative caucus.
->>>There are concerns regarding partiality and biasness of the Panel members. Panel chief Marzuki Darusman has been having comments against Sri Lanka in no justifiable grounds.
The second panelist was Steven Ratner has been very critical of Sri Lanka from the inception of the Tamil terrorist Eelam War.
The third panelist – the South African Yasmin Sooka, who is a close associate of the South African Tamil Navi Pillai also responsible for the failed resolution that was brought against Sri Lanka before the UNHRC in May 2009.
Thus it clearly shows her bias too against Sri Lanka.
With panelists who were biased against Sri Lanka, what would be incorporated in the Darusman Report was predictable.
->>>What is disturbing about this report is why it only focused about the last few months of the 27-year long war ? Why not go back to the Tamil Tiger terrorists killings since February 2002 if there was some difficulty to go back to events as far back as July 1983 ?
Mr. Asoka states, “Is Ban ki-Moon concerned that he would be opening a can of worms and having to haul all country-culprit Governments like Norway, France, Canada, Denmark, Britain, and International Non-Government Organizations (INGOs), et cetra, for aiding and abetting to prolong the war and multiply the killings of innocent Sri Lankans while supporting the Tamil Tiger terrorists to win this war and destabilize a democratic sovereign country ?”
->>>The role of the panel was purely “advisory” and they were to report only to the Secretary General. Thus the fact that the Panel documented “credible alleged violations” based on submissions by unidentified parties is tantamount to investigation thus is in clear violation of their mandate.
->>>According to the content stated in page 6 of the report, the material received orally and written is regarded as strictly confidential and for 20 years absolutely no one in this world, and that includes the All Party Parliamentary Committee that this rookie MP will be calling for to study this UN (Darusman) Report on alleged war crimes by Sri Lanka, would have no right to access this material.
