No-surprise postponement of OISL report gives time and space to culprits

[TamilNet, Monday, 16 February 2015, 16:53 GMT]
As anticipated by the ‘regime change’ in Colombo, engineered by Washington and New Delhi, who also designed and remotely directed the genocidal war against the nation of Eezham Tamils in the island, the release of the OHCHR Investigation on Sri Lanka (OISL) report mandated by the UNHRC on the war crimes and the crimes against humanity in the island, has been postponed to September. One of the citations of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Raad al-Hussein, for the postponement of the report is the “possibility that new information will become available,” besides “signals of broad cooperation [from the Government of Sri Lanka],” according to a news report by the Reuters on Monday.

"My request is based on the changing context in Sri Lanka, and the signals of broad cooperation I have received from the Government, as well as the possibility that new information will become available for the report," the UN Human Rights Chief has written to the president of the UNHRC, according to the Reuters.

Last week, Northern Provincial Council Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran revealed that the US Assistant Secretary of State Nisha Biswal, who recently visited the island was not in favour of pursuing the Geneva OISL investigation on Sri Lanka in the March sessions as scheduled.

In the meantime, informed circles say that the New Delhi Establishment has given hopes to Colombo that India would demand neither investigation nor full implementation of 13A, but would allow Colombo to have its ‘time and space’.

Immediately after the war, on two occasions, the New Delhi Establishment blocked any investigations on the island and signed a military-to-military relationship agreement with genocidal Sri Lanka. Now, with the postponement of the OISL report and with the visit of the SL President, New Delhi has signed a civil nuclear treaty with Colombo.

The whole process takes place for the last five years amidst an ongoing genocide and without any guarantee or protection for the affected nation of Eezham Tamils.

Who will be questioning the motive of the postponement at the UNHRC, remains to be seen for the future assessment of the actors and allies by the Tamils, commented Tamil activists in the island and in the diaspora.

If the postponement of the report is to facilitate ‘domestic investigations’ by the new regime as cited by the UN Rights Chief, the immediate release of the OISL report on the investigations that took place so far, will actually be helping such a domestic process. But, it is obvious the reason is something else, the activists further said.

The international dimensions of the struggle polity of Eezham Tamils should be degraded and reduced into a ‘rat race’ for domestic and petty political positions, is the idea behind the current manoeuvrings of the concerned Powers.

While the nation of Eezham Tamils aspire for an internationally conceived and guaranteed solution for its liberation from protracted genocide, certain ultimate culprits think of confining it under their armpits. That is the drama taking place at the UNHRC, the activists further said.
