The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) today called for further action by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) against the Sri Lanka government.

The party in a statement said that appropriate action at the UNHRC is absolutely necessary to persuade the Sri Lankan government to comply with the said resolution and to discontinue with what it called ‘harmful agenda against the Tamil People of Sri Lanka.

The statement said, “a delegation of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is presently in South Africa. This is consequent to an initiative by the Government of South Africa and the African National Congress to share their own experiences in Conflict Resolution and Truth and Reconciliation.

The South African initiative commenced in the year 2011 when a delegation led by their Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs visited Sri Lanka and made this offer to the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the TNA. The TNA has accepted this offer.
2011 was the year in which the GOSL commenced a bilateral discussion with the TNA in the month of January to resolve the 60 year old national issue in Sri Lanka.
 
The TNA said that although the TNA placed on the table their comprehensive proposals for a political solution by March 2011, the GOSL defaulted in making even their response known for 5 months and 7 meetings, which forced the TNA to refuse to agree to the next date of meeting. Thereafter the President met with the leader of the TNA and the bilateral discussions recommenced on the 16th of September 2011 on the following agreements: 1. Five previous proposals to be brought to the negotiations in lieu of the GOSL's response; and 2. Once consensus is reached between the TNA and the GOSL on certain substantive issues, the TNA would join the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC).

    What else can you expect from these remanants of LTTE.

    Thomas Monday, 04 February 2013 08:40 AM

    TNA need not call for action, but the international community has decided on their own to call for action at Geneva. GOSL must implement LLRC

    Esala Monday, 04 February 2013 08:54 AM

    The main problem over 80 million total world Tamil population doesn't have separate country. The best place for them to ask separate country in In India. Not Sri Lanka like small island.

    saman liyanage Monday, 04 February 2013 09:08 AM

    IT IS FOOLISH AND CRIMINAL ACT TO PUNISH SRI LANKAN POPULATION FOR CRIMES DID BY THEIR LEADERS.IF WANT TO PUNISH,PUNISH THE PERSONS WHO DID CRIMES.

    Kodituwakkuarachchi Monday, 04 February 2013 09:16 AM

    The "deafening silence" of Bodu Bala Sena on this issue, explains who they really are.

    Kondebandapucheena Monday, 04 February 2013 09:22 AM

    Since long time they are expecting action against Mother Lanka and tried by joining Monster VP but Failed now going elsewhere

    Justin Keppetiyagama Monday, 04 February 2013 09:35 AM

    They are helping Rajapaksa government to rouse patriotism and cover up their anti-social moves

    Ryan Monday, 04 February 2013 09:36 AM

    I have not lived under sanctions, it will be really wonderful experience to live, US pls go ahead at your own risk!

    hello Monday, 04 February 2013 09:50 AM

    SL Govt is not yielding even to implement LLRC. You try and see. The leaders are only looking after themselves not the country.

    edward Monday, 04 February 2013 04:47 AM

    Have these guys TNA are sri lankan origin ? what purpose they wanna to punish there own country ? nothing going to be benifited for them

    rio-uk Monday, 04 February 2013 10:04 AM

    tna - go back to where u come from

    Vicks Monday, 04 February 2013 10:07 AM

    Sri Lankan origin peopleare NOT supposed to make a comment against Sri Lankan Government? It was tempting to ask, "Are you Mahinda Rajapakse to ask this question"? Well, it would have been a wrong question! Mahinda himself went around, including to Geneva, to argue againt the Government on the JVP issue. Vasudeva went with him. Tamara Kunanayakam hosted them in her modest apartment. If you are guily you deserve to be punished!

    Tamils enjoy every facilities in everywhere in the island e
    specially in the business sector.Can Sinhalese enjoy similar
    in North? I don't know what the hell TNA is asking for.

    mahen Monday, 04 February 2013 05:01 AM

    You have to go and ask at north and east tamils after assuring them they will not be revenged for what they are telling.. they will tell you why..

    Frank Monday, 04 February 2013 05:11 AM

    I really don't know why we ask for an international intervention when we can sort it out if we really make the effort. Look at countries like Egypt etc where they protested and fought hard enough that the governments just let go. Its just a matter of who is willing to make such an effort. Asking for International intervention is just an easy way out

    qwerty Monday, 04 February 2013 05:16 AM

    traitors!

    Ravi Monday, 04 February 2013 10:17 AM

    I love my children but when they make mistake I warn or punish them. It dose not mean I do not love them, I really love them and want them to be better people.

    RamUK Monday, 04 February 2013 10:18 AM

    u too

    Justin Keppetiyagama Monday, 04 February 2013 10:23 AM

    TNA is helping the government to rouse patriotism and cover up other actual burning issues in the country

    Sunny Monday, 04 February 2013 05:27 AM

    These people should be impeached from the Parliment.

    Justin Keppetiyagama Monday, 04 February 2013 10:25 AM

    TNA must explain the appropriate action and the harmful agenda against the Tamil People

    clueless Monday, 04 February 2013 05:26 AM

    the government must be loving this as it makes the ruling party more popular

    Vicks Monday, 04 February 2013 10:35 AM

    JR said he couldn't convert a man to a woman, but can do everything else with the Executive Presidency. Mahinda can even do that by the looks of it. When people like Sunny are willing to support blindly Mahindas of this world would keep ruling.

    Muhammad Sunday, 03 February 2013 12:00 AM

    Why no comments posted yet. via DM Android App

    Nodrog Monday, 04 February 2013 10:48 AM

    The TNA was the mouthpiece of the LTTE. Now they are the voice for the diaspora. It is both their interest to keep the conflicts burning to keep the donations flowing in.

    Elakiri Sunday, 03 February 2013 12:00 AM

    Lanka Liar Monday, 04 February 2013 12:00 PM

    Yes peace can be achieved by kidnapping raping committing war crimes killing journalist. Sri Lankan peace - white van brand

    Rohan Monday, 04 February 2013 12:00 PM

    These fellows are idiots trying to get around tamils and Pillay and do their own. Thank god we got rid of the terrorists now another terrorist group to act on. GOSL don't let these croonies to govern the country the way they want or the UNHCR. The regulations passed by the parliament should be the order of the day.

    Lanka Liar Monday, 04 February 2013 12:00 PM

    Free the country from corruption

    Lanka Liar Monday, 04 February 2013 12:01 PM

    They know where and when to ask for. They will not ask for a country like Sri Lanka

    edward Monday, 04 February 2013 07:32 AM

    We have to stop this fro the begining from now otherwise those muslims also will make alligations towards us ,

    Lanka Liar Monday, 04 February 2013 12:02 PM

    They are asking the same. Punish the guilty and free the innocent. In Sri Lanka it is the other way

    Lanka Liar Monday, 04 February 2013 12:05 PM

    They come from Sri Lanka. they will be back. The world wants to listen to them. They should be doing something right.

    Neil Monday, 04 February 2013 07:40 AM

    Tamil's grievances can only be resolved by the international community. The majority has no desire to resolve this issue. Very good speech !

    Thilan Monday, 04 February 2013 12:21 PM

    You must be joking hello. Are you a TNA member?

    Barbara Monday, 04 February 2013 12:26 PM

    Why international community. You mean the diaspora who are collecting funds for another killing spree like the LTTE?

    jena Monday, 04 February 2013 07:52 AM

    Kodituwakkuarachchi Monday, 04 February 2013 12:29 PM

    The leaders drive around Laboginis while you and I have to foot the bill and bear the brunt of the impending economic sanctions.

    Banda Monday, 04 February 2013 08:00 AM

    Banda Monday, 04 February 2013 08:04 AM

    Lobo Monday, 04 February 2013 12:44 PM

    Of course, they are all enjoying cushy lives with the donations and don't want to go back to their normal lives if the conflict is over and the donations stop flowing in

    Nanthan Monday, 04 February 2013 08:14 AM

    "Our organisation, as well as our people do not want war. We want peace and we want to resolve our problems through peaceful means. We are deeply committed to the peace process.
