UN continues to commit knowing blunder on Eezham Tamils

[TamilNet, Thursday, 03 January 2013, 08:14 GMT]
While various publications, including an internal investigation report of the UN, find fault with the way the UN handled the Vanni War that ended in genocide, the UN, the ICRC, the IOM and other international agencies continue to commit the same blunder knowingly, by leaving Eezham Tamils entirely in the hands of Colombo, with no outfits to complain with trust or to independently monitor the on-going genocide, said a senior social activist in the island, citing the cases of the repeated rape and abuse of former LTTE cadres, the sufferings of the Tamil women coerced into SL military, the plight of a doctor who voiced for them, forced relocation of re-settlers and the acts committed on Jaffna University students. These take place at individual level, apart from the larger militarisation, colonisation and Sinhalicisation of the genocidal agenda, he said.

The hurried withdrawal of the UN agencies and the ICRC after declaration of the closure of IDP camps, ‘completion’ of resettlement, ‘rehabilitation’ of the LTTE in the hands of genocidal Colombo – all with simulation and hoodwink– once again re-enacted what the international agencies did before and during the Vanni War to serve the vicious agenda of the Establishments of some powers, the activist in the island accused.

The treachery of the international agencies went hand in hand with the US-India tabled LLRC-based resolution at the UNHRC, the activist said.

The calculated withdrawal of international agencies, coupled together with the UNHRC resolution, has provided impunity, encouragement and international legal status for Colombo to carry out the post-war genocide agenda in an accelerated way. The individual human rights cases cited above are just manifestations, the activist observed.

Commenting on the case of Dr. Sivashankar in the detention of SL military, the activist said that the UN and the international agencies are still pathetically bankrupt in rehabilitating the doctors who served at Mu’l’livaaykkaal, in bringing them back to openly tell the truth to the world.

Dr. Sivathasan’s words in Tamil, seemingly absolving the SL military but ending that “this is what he tells while working in Vanni” have to be carefully perused to understand in between the lines, the activist said, adding that the ultimate culprits are those who deny the rights of Eezham Tamils to directly take their complains to international agencies and be monitored internationally, independently and trustfully.

Meanwhile, some human rights activists in the diaspora told TamilNet that some countries in Europe risk even their own reputation in shielding Sri Lanka’s genocidal military, by preventing evidences of repeated rape committed on former LTTE cadres reaching the outside world.

These European countries ignore even the recent UNHCR recommendations in recognizing serious cases of asylum seekers, the human rights activists further said.
