    Mrs Pillia is a salaried employee of UN , she does not feel the pain and misery of a racist country , who are scared of their culture being wiped out in the near future either by the Chinese or Muslims, the Chinese have been allowed in the country to counter the Muslim takeover , because China is one country which will not accept Islam. I praise the chinese people in Sri Lanka to continue eating Pork and develop the Pork meat business in SL.

    They are not stupid to be misled by anyone. But the thing is you should be impartial to accepts the facts.

    kumar Friday, 16 August 2013 10:10 AM

    Precisely!

    Saskia Thursday, 15 August 2013 01:14 PM

    While field visiting, make sure no military is near the people. Otherwise, the people will not speak out truth.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 16 August 2013 07:29 AM

    Nobody can solve our problems, we have to make a honest endeavour to sort out our own problems. 30 years of war and much damage has happened to this country, but still the present leader is behaving in the same manner as SWRD and JR did, not agreeing to understand that the Jaffna Tamils are a indengenous population of this country.

    Unclesam Thursday, 15 August 2013 01:25 PM

    We just waiting like a goddesses visit to our country. Just keeping hopes, that she will finish all our problems like. Did any of the HR high caliber figure visit our country during 30 year war?... So why its only now.? we must not forget their role during bus loads of passengers murdered by Praba and his clan. Opportunists will capitalize on this heavily..

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 16 August 2013 07:32 AM

    Impartial...if you sing the sinhalese baila, then your on their side but if you speak for the rights of minorities, crime and inhuman issues happening in this country, then the label is tamil LTTE supporter. When will you guys think normally?

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 16 August 2013 07:35 AM

    So because of those issues you have mentioned, it means all these racist killings of tamils by the sinhalese can be erased and forgotten. What nonsense.

    david Friday, 16 August 2013 07:35 AM

    Ms.Navi, you are welcome, but be impartial, don't be mislead by racist TNA parliamentarians.

    Anil Friday, 16 August 2013 08:27 AM

    when you guys cured from minority syndrome

    Human Rights Eagle Thursday, 15 August 2013 03:11 PM

    Though a request had been made to Ms Pillai to hold an international inquiry in connection with regard to disappearance of more than 500,000 people from Old Yougoslavia she has failed to respond to this request to-date. The reason being the US along with NETO and Eric Solhiem are the principal culprits on this issue. Also, what is going on in Egypt today? Approx. 2000 people were killed! Ms Pillai, what have you got to say on these Human Rights issues?

    Renu Friday, 16 August 2013 11:29 AM

    yOU NEED TO VISIT AS MANY PLACES AS POSSIBLE, SPEAK INDEPENDANTLY TO MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE . DO NOT GET GOVERNMENT PEOPLE INVOLVED IN ANY OF THESE AS THEY WILL TAKE YOU ON A CONDUCTED TOUR AND PAINT A ROSSY PICTURE. THERE IS NO HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE COUNTRY NOR THERE IS LAW & ORDER., IT IS FAST BECOMING A MILLITARY STATE
