“Darusman report” disrupts efforts to reinforce peace

The Government today claimed that the public release of the report by the Panel of Experts appointed by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was a hindrance to establishing “security, peace and stability” in the country.
 
The Government has refused to refer to the report as one sanctioned by the UN and has dubbed it the “Darusman report”
 
“The public release of the Report at this stage is divisive, and disrupts our efforts to reinforce peace, security and stability in Sri   Lanka. It feeds into the political agendas of interested parties,” the External Affiars Ministry said in a statement.
 
The government reiterated its stance that the report was “fundamentally flawed in many respects and that among other deficiencies, the Report is based on biased material, which is presented without any verification.”
 
The statement, by the government, regurgitated that accountability was an internal issue that would be dealt with domestically.  “The Government has put in
place of its own accord a domestic mechanism dealing with a range of issues relevant to the conflict with a view to promoting reconciliation and confidence
among people.  UN Member States have welcomed this measure.  Furthermore, the Government has established an Inter-Agency Committee consisting of seven key Ministries in order to proceed with the interim recommendations of the domestic mechanism, the LLRC”, accords to the statement.
 
“The conclusions of the externally constituted “Darusman Panel” working from New York should not take precedence over the conclusions, still awaited, of the domestic process. The “Darusman Report” refers to many issues which are alleged to have occurred in Sri Lanka and which are currently subject to a domestic process.  This material can be looked at by the LLRC should it wish to do so, depending on its own assessment of the contents.”

    Who is buying our products? China only or USA and Europe?
    Does sri Lanka people know at the cold war time we took the China side by then PM Srimavo and we are now standing with only a BMICH while the Singapore which took the USA and Europe side is enjoying a luxury life today?
    Politician must think about their people rather than their personal aspects. All the time slept - did a successful hunger strike against UN and now begging others.

    Yes, because they pay money to run that organization.
    We are poor we get food aid from them. We get money from UNESCO too. We don't contribute to them. So understand we are on the receiving side. We have be to be careful till we are in the receiving side. When money barks it makes sound when hungry mouth bark it won't be heard.

    Ranil openly said USA had rights to wage a war against Iraq and Afghanistan at a UN council meeting. So we took USA side during Ranil's period. But what happened? He almost ended up giving a separate state to LTTE terrorists. Is that what USA wanted in SL?

    Spot on....100% agree.
    When America violate the rule of engagement thy are the ones who investigate. Why not us?

    Well said

    who guarantees that the report is not going to be biased or flawed or at least made public. And how to verify the truth content in it?

    SL Wednesday, 27 April 2011 02:44 PM

    Good move to disassociate UN from this report that was not sanctions by UN voting body. However, government has to "show" that the LLRC investigates some of the things mentioned in that report.

    Sara Wednesday, 27 April 2011 02:48 PM

    Ofcourse

    SL is very Small Island. Yes indeed India, China, Russia and Iran are concern of the strategic place of this island. But I do not think they will be interested in our country at the cost of western power. If US and UN collated Europe wants to bring sanctions I think they will do it somehow and remember there is no risk involve in this game for them. I think the government should be more careful.

    UN is America's puppy. I know it very well.

    Thomas Thursday, 28 April 2011 02:05 AM

    It is 2 years since the war is over, but nothing done towards remedying Tamils requests, therefore there is some essence in what the international community feels about Sri Lanka

    Fayad Thursday, 28 April 2011 02:12 AM

    “security, peace and stability” UN has to support us to is this regard, but are they ??

    Peter Thursday, 28 April 2011 08:33 AM

    Suddenly the whole world has become tigers,not counting China,India,Iran and Russia

    Chandana Thursday, 28 April 2011 02:54 AM

    Please explain the "Requests" which are specific to Tamils in SL?
