    What is the governments plan ? I am from the East and have not seen any policy implemented nor discussed. All “ boru” show to please the UN. All of you enjoy your holidays. Good food, even alcohol served plenty, any other additional favours provided ??

    Both men with poor English pronunciation it would be interesting if someone could record their conversation and publish them. One speaks with Colombo “sing song” accent and the other with “Portuguese “ accent.

    There is no practical purpose in the UN. It only serves to pay hefty salaries to all it’s employees. Ever since it’s creation we have had scores of wars, genocides, famines ..the list goes on, what role it played to stop them ? None. In 1987, as a young undergraduate in London, I contacted the UN office in London and told them about the reports coming of mass killings of Tamil civilians going on in Jaffna by the Indian Army and told them to inform the UN Secretary General to immediately make a public warning to India to stop the ongoing Tamil massacres. But the UN officials in London totally refused to accept my desperate pleas .

    UNP is dead and the UN is a joke.

    UN has become a law unto itself. There are continuous criticisms against it’s staff members but no action is being taken. For example the black guy put in charge of WHO is rumoured to be giving jobs to beautiful Asian female doctors and then pressurising them to have sex with him.

    I hope he carried the begging bowl and held it for some funds from UN

    Nathan's friend Monday, 07 November 2022 04:15 AM

    @Nathan: Machang, I told you no machang don't complain to UN? Nothing would come out of them, no! You should have informed Hindu Jaffna Sivakumar, Sisira, G Miskin, dr Kumar etc, for prompt action. They would have listened to you, no?

    @ Nathan’ Friend., you dirty D B S Jeyaraj , the mad animal who collaborated with the IPKF against the Tamils. You hate your own Tamils and the Buddhist Sinhalese.You a dirty Converted Christian in the payroll of “no toilet” Indians for decades. We will get you and your criminal family for the crimes you committed. Lot of us has seen your criminal file covering over 40 years.

    Answer the war crime charges Tuesday, 08 November 2022 12:05 AM

    Nathan’s friend , hey you anti Tamil Christian convert “ psycho” D B S Jeyaraj, tell every Tamil, how much the Indian Army paid you for collaborating with them in Jaffna. Apart from watching the crimes being committed , did you also join them in killing or raping the Tamils ? There are photos of you with Indian Army soldiers taken in October 1987, in the middle of the Indian attack against the Jaffna Tamil Civilians. Don’t hide behind writing old stories about the dead LTTE, that cover will not work. Answer the charges of your involvement with the Indian Army in Jaffna. We will ever allow you to remain silent and hope things would go away. No, this wouldn’t go away !
