    First of all, send all the dog-obsessed anal discharge war criminals like Kamal Gunaratne, Shavendra Silva and the other crooks to The Hague as a sign of goodwill towards the UNCHR.

    It is strange that Sri Lanka has a Commission of Inquiry to investigate the findings of other Commissions and Committees. Finally, nothing will happen except appointing another committee to investigate this one.

    Those mothers and who lost their children by the enforced disappearances by government security forces are in demonstration for over 2000 days now. What a cruel governance going on in SL? All these commissions can only deceive some outsiders. You cannot deceive god. The shameful fate the country is in now and the suffering the Sinhalese people are undergoing is the result of the sins committed by those in governance to the minorities. Lord Buddha will never forgive those who: 1. Burnt Tamil houses in day light all over SL 2. Looted the Tamil houses 3. Caused injustice to the minorities 4. Made enforced disappearances of youth from all communities 5. Looted the wealth belong to the people of the country. Those who committed such heinous crimes will never be able to escape gods punishment. The sins will haunt even their generations for generations. Kamal Gunaratne, Shavendra Silva and other stooges, Gota, Mahinda, Namal May escape HRC but not from GOD.
