Sri Lanka must implement some more recommendations of LLRC, before September, to face the UNHRC report on the international probe against Sri Lanka successfully said State Minister of Finance and UPFA Kalutara District candidate Mahinda Samarasinghe yesterday (If NOT for the UNHRC pressure non of the LLRC will be implemented by the racist Sri Lankan government).
He also said that in order to face the challenges before Sri Lanka, it was important to bring Right to Information Act, fully implementation of 19th Amendment. Interestingly if not for the international pressure even he would have NOT recommended his government and his former boss Mahinda to do this.
The final report of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) was handed over to President Mahinda Rajapaksa by the Commission’s Chairman Chitta Ranjan de Silva at Temple Trees on 20th of November 2011. In May 2010, President Rajapaksa appointed the eight-member Commission to report on the lessons to be learnt from the events in the period, Feb 2002 to May 2009, their attendant concerns and to recommend measures to ensure that there will be no recurrence of such a situation.
UPFA Kalutara District candidate Mahinda Samarasinghe a close associate of Mahinda has not given this pressure to former boss Mahinda for the last 4 years as Mahinda did not want to implement it.
The LLRC was created as an escape route from the demand especially from Western countries to establish a war crimes tribunal under international supervision. Now, the Government finds itself in a bind and at odds with the recommendations of the LLRC report.
The External Affairs Minister’s baffling logic is that the Government shouldn’t implement the LLRC report overnight, not because it cannot be implemented overnight, but because “the people will think it is being done because of international pressure”. In other words, don’t do anything good for the country because people will say the world asked you to do it.
Sri Lanka should be allowed to hold a domestic investigation into alleged human rights violations during the final stages of the country’s war against the LTTE without international pressure or supervision, only than the government can cover up the killing of more than 40,000 Tamil civilians in May 2009.
Sri Lankan forces under Rajapaksha is accused of War crimes. Raping of girls and killing of suspected LTTE sympathisers in cold blood by the Sri Lankan forces will be exposed if International investigation is held.
More than 1000 LTTE leaders and their family members surrendered to Sri Lankan Army with White Flag after UN negotiated the surrender. But the Sri Lankan forces took them to secret camps and killed them on orders of Rajapaksha.
The Rajapaksha family wants to come back to power so that they can cover up the War Crime and the billions worth of money stolen from the public.
Not to be outdone, the Minister of External Affairs says the LLRC report cannot be …implement the LLRC report overnight, not because it cannot be implemented … of a virtual ‘civil war’, the Government must also now ‘move on’ from Geneva.
