'UN principles violated'
"It is very clear that the Darusman Report has been manoeuvred by Ban
Ki- Moon to curry favour with Western super powers. He has gone beyond
his mandate and in breach of the powers of the UNSG in going public with
this unscrupulous and partisan report, Dr Nath Amarakone," leader,
Eksath Lanka Maha Sabha said.
"UNSG's hand picked Panel whom he termed as "experts", are not
members in the service of the UN. This in itself is a breach of
principles of the UN in seeking advice for his guidance.
"The panel members are on record as being prejudiced against the Sri
They have gone out of the way to dictate terms to the government, a
sovereign member nation of the UN Assembly.
"Sri Lanka has objected to setting up this panel to begin with. Their
appointment has been done without a mandate from the UN General Assembly
or the Security Council. The Sri Lanka Government has disapproved the so
called "panel of experts" as unfit to report on the subject.
"This panel as expected has sought representations only from the rump
of the LTTE. They are reported to have received 4,000 documents from
2,800 organizations and persons, who remain incognito.
The Government of Sri Lanka has not been consulted on any of these
representations. The report remains a charge sheet based on
representations made by the rump of the LTTE. These have not been
verified by any investigations.
"It is a fact that Ministers in the UK and France have attempted to
interfere during the final stages of the terrorist war in Sri Lanka.
"The US Secretary of State after the elimination of LTTE terrorists
has pressed for an investigation into human rights of the civilians used
by the LTTE as a human shield. The Western interests in protecting
dictators in Iraq, Afghanistan, Tunisia, Egypt, and many middle east
countries have led to erosion of human rights rather than to safe
"They tried the same in Sri Lanka as well by their attempt to protect
Prabhakaran, a rabid racist and separatist who followed the agenda of
the foreign funded NGOs. They failed in their efforts due to the firm of
stand of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
"Ban Ki-Moon fails to note the millions of civilians who are dying in
the process of so called attempts to safeguard Democracy and Human
Rights, a mere camouflage of the Western neo colonial powers for
imposing their self interest. They have invoked the UN Security Council
to save civilian lives in Libya who are supposed to be threatened by its
President Muhamour Gadaffi.
Under this resolution the NATO forces are unleashing indiscriminate
air attacks on civilians in Libya and arming civilians to fight against
the legitimate regime, which is a member of the UN.
"The UNSG is silent about the death of thousands of civilians, the
worldwide by separatist moves encouraged by Western powers as part of
their new colonialist strategy.
"Ban Ki-Moon has acted in a partisan manner to further the neo
colonialist agenda of the Western power block and he proceeds further
his own agenda in favour of Western powers to seek his reelection for
the second term in the UN post."
