UN Rights Chief cites IC for rejecting release of Tamil POWs

[TamilNet, Sunday, 07 February 2016, 23:34 GMT]
According to NPC Chief Minister Justice C.V. Wigneswaran, who met UN Human Rights Chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, visiting Jaffna on Sunday, the Chief has conveyed to him that the governments of the International Community are not in favour of the model of granting general amnesty to prisoners of war. Mr Zeid was citing the case of Syria and this message should go to our children languishing in the prisons, the Chief Minister said. Mr Zeid has indicated that the Tamil POWs should go through the judicial system of Colombo for their release. From demanding Tamils to surrender to genocidal Sri Lanka during the war, to prodding them into barbed-wire camps at the end of the war and to the present stand of the UN Human Rights Chief, the UN was always dodging its responsibilities.

Enslaved Tamil fighters forced to sing ‘Sri Lanka’ anthem in Sinhala

[TamilNet, Friday, 05 February 2016, 18:06 GMT]
Forcing Eezham Tamil school girls to parade at a military event on the so-called ‘Independence Day’ and bringing a section of enslaved former LTTE members from the so-called ‘Civil Security Division’ (CSD) to sing ‘Sri Lanka’ anthem in Sinhala, the occupying Sinhala military was engaged in an act of humiliating Eezham Tamils at Poonakari in Ki'linochchi district on Thursday. Just a look at the faces of the enslaved Tamils and occupying Sinhalese would tell the reality. No explanation is needed to those who are familiar with the world history of occupations and genocide. A video recording of the event, which has been recorded and distributed through social media on the Internet, is being reproduced by TamilNet for the purpose of historical record. The video is a must to be seen by all.

Genocidal Sri Lanka, IC abetters, not understood in Latin America, Africa

[TamilNet, Thursday, 04 February 2016, 20:17 GMT]
Latin American Herald Tribune featured an article on Thursday, projecting the so-called independence day of ‘Sri Lanka’ as promoting ‘national reconciliation’ and said: “In the final months of the war from March to May 2009, both the LTTE - which is listed as a terrorist organisation by 32 countries - and the Sri Lankan military were accused of war crimes, including genocide, against civilians. Genocide by both sides is the picture given. Last month, Reuter Africa came out with another story: “Ethnic minority Tamils were often favoured for higher government positions under British colonial rule. After independence in 1948, many lost their positions as successive governments pursued language and other policies favouring the majority Sinhalese population,” the story said.

TPC proposal comes against the backdrop of imperialism's dictations

[TamilNet, Sunday, 31 January 2016, 17:14 GMT]
The Vaddukkoaddai Resolution was spontaneously coming from the nation of Eezham Tamils and all its political parties. The resolution was entirely indigenous. It had the spirit of struggle. The Tamil People's Council (TPC) draft proposal, in its thrust, is dictated by the outside imperialist need to retain the Agent State ‘Sri Lanka’ in one piece. The TPC draft is confined to larger outlines set from the outside. There is no struggle, but compromise. Right from the Tamil chieftains of Nalloor signing a defeatist treaty with the Portuguese; the Kandyans signing a similar one with the British and all treaties being forgotten in the creation of the unitary State, the game of conceding the island to suit views through outside prisms continues.

NYT confines justice to US paradigm

[TamilNet, Saturday, 30 January 2016, 06:59 GMT]
New York Times being happy about genocidal Colombo’s President Maithripala Sirisena righting “Rajapaksa government’s tilt toward China” is of no concern to Eezham Tamils. But whether Rajapaksa or Sirisena, the USA refusing to see genocide and imposing the ‘Sri Lanka’ paradigm on the genocide-affected nation of Eezham Tamils is the core injustice to world Tamils as well as to peoples of similar plight in world humanity. Justice cannot come through fundamentally unjustifiable resolutions spearheaded by the USA at the UNHRC that failed to recognize even the name Tamil, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island, responding to NYT editorial “Time for Justice in Sri Lanka.”

Civil society misses target

[TamilNet, Friday, 29 January 2016, 00:03 GMT]
From pre-Mu'l'livaaykkaal to present times, while there is a very obvious pattern in the genocidal miseries faced by the nation of Eezham Tamils, designed and executed from outside of the island, the civil society misses target and misleads the people by talking of Sirisena and Wickramasinghe, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island. They were responding to the latest statement coming from the civil society passing the blame on the ‘mixed signals’ coming from Sirisena and Wickramasinghe in implementing the 2015 Geneva resolution. The struggle outlook of the civil society is fundamentally wrong in basing their discourse on the flawed US-set agenda at Geneva. The civil society will not be passing any message to world humanity without pinpointing the role of the ultimate culprits and addressing them to their face, the activists said.

SL police shields military culprits of rape in East

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 27 January 2016, 22:20 GMT]
While evidence at the crime scene pointed to the occupying Sinhala navy personnel of the ‘SLNS Vidura’ naval base as culprits of the alleged abuse and brutal murder of 6-year-old Tamil boy Tharshan Kugathasan, who was dumped into an abandoned well near the Vidura camp at Champoor on Monday, the Sinhala police of genocidal Colombo was attempting to shield the criminals, the resettled Tamil villagers told TamilNet on Wednesday. The detection dogs brought by the SL police were sniffing towards the Navy camp. In the meantime, a Tamil girl, who was sexually abused by three Sinhala soldiers at Chanthi-ve’li in Batticaloa five years ago at the age of eight, is still fearing for the lives of herself and family members. One of the abusers was still deployed in the area. Her father seeking justice was subjected to ‘grease devil’ attack and had to leave the island on employment.

45 Tamil girls enslaved as child soldiers in SL Military

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 19 January 2016, 23:39 GMT]
More than 45 Tamil girls, who were recruited from poverty-stricken Tamil families in the North have been deployed under genocidal Sinhala military commanders, who committed extensive acts of genocide in the past, escapees from Palaali told TamilNet. The SLA Commander in Jaffna instructed commanders under him to keep the enslaved Tamil girls under their direct supervision within the High Security Zone in Palaali while the Tamil men, who were trying to escape, were deployed as forced labourers to construct new fortifications inside the Sinhala Military Zone, a recently escaped Tamil said providing extensive details. As more than 450 of 600 Tamils deceived into the SL military have managed to escape and ‘military punishments‘ went contrary to the SL propaganda, sophisticated ‘loans’ and increased payments are being organised to keep the Tamil recruits enslaved, the source further revealed.

Diaspora network urges TPC to consolidate fundamentals, course-correct main polilty

[TamilNet, Monday, 18 January 2016, 18:44 GMT]
A group of like-minded diaspora youth activists and writers on Monday issued a document detailing 15 key issues, which they wanted the Tamil People's Council (TPC) in the homeland to clarify without ambiguity in consolidating the definitions, descriptions and attitudinal fundamentals of the Tamil cause during their present exercise of formulating a political framework on behalf of Eezham Tamils. While expecting the TPC to explore a model of confederalism, in which Eelam Tamils could exercise control over defined internal and external affairs, a proper negotiation required mediation by a third party at a global level. Various Empires, external States and the United Nations have been responsible for the injustices against Eezham Tamils in the past. The Global Community therefore needs greater awareness on the situation of Tamils in the island, the group said.

Sirisena's Mahaweli Ministry continues demographic genocide in East

[TamilNet, Saturday, 16 January 2016, 22:13 GMT]
The UNP government in 1984 kicked off a genocidal project of settling Sinhalese in large numbers in the Tamil-speaking district of Batticaloa in East with the same agenda of Sinhaliciation that took place in Trincomalee district earlier. Eezham Tamils were chased out of their villages as more than ten thousand Sinhalese were almost moved overnight by the SL Ministry of ‘Mahaweli Development’ to occupy the key areas in Batticaloa coming under the so-called Left bank of the B System. The SL President Maithiripala Sirisena, who is also the SL Minister of ‘Mahaweli Development’, is now carrying out the same project in a sophisticated manner, Tamil civil officials in Batticaloa said. 30,400 Sinhalese and have been settled under the Mahaweli programme in the district, which is predominantly Tamil-speaking while only 1,281 Tamil-speaking Muslims and 34 Tamils have been given lands, they said.
