UN mechanism fails in gaining confidence of victims: NPC-CM

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 30 September 2015, 14:50 GMT]
A statement on Wednesday coming from the Northern Provincial Council Chief Minister, Justice C. V. Wigneswaran, said that it is a matter of grave concern that the mechanism coming from the resolution at UN fails in gaining support and confidence of the victims. The Chief Minister cited concerns about the process to be adopted in seeing the prevalence of International Laws in a local system that misses them; placing the responsibility of prosecution to local hands that would never bring in justice to victims and the possibility of local judges vetoing or undermining decisions. “I remain deeply concerned about some of the serious weaknesses in the resolution which unless addressed could lead to the failure of this whole process,” Justice Wigneswaran said.

Compared to some who have hijacked the spirit of the TNA, Justice Wigneswaran within his limited scope of functioning as Chief Minister of a province of ‘Sri Lanka’ having the ‘6th Amendment’, comes out with his best in challenging the injustice of the UN mechanism geared by the USA in partnership with genocidal Sri Lanka.

But there is no need for the formality of him saying ‘welcome’ to UNHRC resolution on “Promoting Reconciliation, Accountability and Human Rights in Sri Lanka,” or considering it as a ‘step forward,’ or citing UN ‘development’ model, when the very fundamental of the United ‘Nations’ approach to the affected nation of Eezham Tamils is State-orientated and is a step backward in conceiving the course for the delivery of justice, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island.

Seeing the fundamental injustice and countering it at the level of the ultimate perpetrators is the most important task left to the people of the affected nation. The unfolding ‘mechanism’ only provides new impetus to return to the fundamentals of the question, the activists further commented.
