    Sri Lanka is not prepared to dance to the tune of Ban's band!

    Real Peace Wednesday, 20 August 2014 10:04 AM

    Ban should be banned from saying anything about Sri Lanka!!

    Saskia Wednesday, 20 August 2014 10:04 AM

    Thanks our honorable Ban ki moon. We are eagerly waiting for that the war crime investigation report is submitted to the UN security council as you have promised earlier. The whole Tamil population of world will support you.

    semage Wednesday, 20 August 2014 10:52 AM

    Yah....you want it after your guys are finish. Why not earlier...

    Suq Madique Wednesday, 20 August 2014 10:58 AM

    The cowardly Ban doesn't have the guts to confront the bigger violators of human rights, the US. He prefers to come after tiny SL based on mere allegations so he can keep his job.

    kumar Wednesday, 20 August 2014 10:58 AM

    Don't worry! they will teach you how to dance.

    Suq Madique Wednesday, 20 August 2014 10:59 AM

    To you even prabakaran must have been 'honorable' also I didn't know you spoke on behalf of the entire tamil population.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 21 August 2014 04:19 AM

    The stupid comments are by the Sinhalese. Obviously they will be internationaly a shameful race when the truth comes out.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 21 August 2014 04:20 AM

    Bcos 40,000 innocent civilians were not killed in just few days.

    saman Wednesday, 20 August 2014 04:35 PM

    Dear UN why dont you say this to Israel. Even this minute infants and kids being slaughtered. Isnt it a war crime.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 21 August 2014 04:21 AM

    Very true, criminals will always flock together and support each other.

    Jaya Wednesday, 20 August 2014 11:06 AM

    With the Kangaroo UN team!!!! what a joke

    joe Wednesday, 20 August 2014 11:09 AM

    We didn't do anything sir. Please don't punish us.

    Suganthan Wednesday, 20 August 2014 11:24 AM

    Sasika Idiot's like you will wait ......we are happy that there is somewhat a peace prevailing in the country

    Banda Wednesday, 20 August 2014 11:36 AM

    No wonder why Sasika is eagerly waiting as he is siting in the EEC umbrella. We Sri Lankan's know what LTTE and Diaspora is doing to destroy our mother nation.

    Kondebendapuchhena Wednesday, 20 August 2014 12:15 PM

    First of All you should check US war crime against Iraq,Libya,Syria,etc,etc,

    Ammaa Wednesday, 20 August 2014 12:24 PM

    ibadun Wednesday, 20 August 2014 05:59 PM

    True. He is US appointed so he wags his tail when US wants. Afraid to speak about UK, US and the west who have violated human rights and killed so many innocent. Pillay is the same. Keep your jobs safe Ban and Pillay.
