US resolution is not fruitful. Northern civil society�s opinion

United America's resolution implemented in Geneva is like pinching a baby and rocking the cradle. 

We brought to the attention of many issues unequivocally to the international sector. But it is much disappointing, because not even one issue is included was said by the northern region civil society to the "Udayan" press.

US implemented the resolution in Geneva for the second year, against Sri Lanka and concerning this, the northern civil society was queried and the above opinions were given by them.

Mannar Archbishop Rayappu Joseph said, this is similar to  a thief is  asked to inquire a robbery. We very clearly clarified the situation here, and about international interference, but they did not include in their draft which is disappointing to us.

Sons and daughters missing, missed, forgotten: LLRC’s failure in Sri Lanka

Tamil mothers, sisters, wives and daughters have not yet given up their hopes to find their disappeared sons, brothers, husbands and fathers. The tragedy of endless search continues for them.Some Tamil women have more than one tragedy to digest. Vasanthathevi Kathirkamanathan is still searching for her missing daughter. And, her husband has been missing since May 2009. “I don’t know whether he is alive or dead. My relatives want me to believe that he was hit by a shell during the heavy fighting in May 2009, and died on the spot. But, he was with me till the last moment on 18th May 2009. If he was hit by a shell, and died on the spot, I must have seen his dead body. Since, I have not seen his dead body, I am unable to believe that he was killed. I strongly feel he was made to disappear. My life is in limbo” says tearful Vasanthathevi Kathirkamanathan from Ananthapuram, Puthukkudiyiruppu in Mullaithivu District. She leads her lonely life in a former war zone haunted day and night by the memories of her beloved husband and daughter.

[TamilNet, Sunday, 17 March 2013, 10:16 GMT]
H.D.K.S. Kapila Jeyasekera, who rose in ranks as the Superintendent of Police (SP) from the Special Task Force (STF), and who was alleged to have been responsible for the extra-judicial execution of five Trincomalee students in 2006, and other killings in Trincomalee during 2006, including the ACF-17 killings, has been appointed as the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) to the Ki'linochchi and Mullaiththeevu district, Jaffna Tamil daily Uthayan reported. Mr Jeyasekara is also a close ally of Sri Lanka's Defense Secretary, Gotabhaya Rajapakse, and has been kept out of visible public presence after Jeyasekera was accused of a serious security lapse involving India's Prime Minister during his visit to Colombo in 2008.

Mr Jeyasekera was appointed as the main security detail to India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during the SAARC summit visit in August 2008, and was involved in a serious security lapse for having failed to turn-up after the Prime Minister completed his official engagements at the summit.

Colombo-based political observers said, Mr Jeyasekera was interdicted due this security failure, and has been pushed to the background until he re-emerged with the menacing news in Uthayan that he has been appointed as the new guardian of law-enforcement to the Tamil districts in the Vanni.

Who Makes War Against Children?

Massacred Tamil people
(GENEVA) - On the 24th of February, 2013, a panicky letter addressed to the President of the 22nd UN Human Rights Council was sent by Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha urging him to stop the screening the of the Channel 4 documentary ‘No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka’, co-sponsored by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. Perhaps the Sri Lankan delegation forgot that it is Geneva, where there is ‘Right to Freedom of Press’, not Colombo, where anyone against the ruling class can be bumped easily. The screening of the 3rd part of the Killing Fields of Sri Lanka started as scheduled at 12.00 noon. Paul Hoffman Chair of the International Executive Committee of Amnesty International moderated the session,
