    UK. Should propose SL to face the international court. SL will come out with flying colours. MR said that the soldiers had human rights book in one hand and the rifle in the other. Thus MR will be a brilliant witness.

    Yes, the best thing is to bring them to the international court in the Hague, because the UNHRC has too little power because of the other bananastates in the council. Warlord Nathanga of Congo got 30 years imprissonment and has to pay 30 million euro to his victims. That will learn the Rajapaksa's

    It was Britain who defeated the Wanni King Bandara Wannian on 31st October 1799 and Kandy King Rajasingan in 1815 and merged all as one country in 1834, including Jaffna that was ruled separately by the Portuguese and Dutch. Now she has left and gone but, part of the islanders are there troubling her! No escape, your majesty, sorry!!

    People like Sarah Weerasekera should control his tongue against Tamils and India for the security of Sri Lanka.
