Is there a hidden agenda to convert ? Dr Koenraad Elst explains.

Lankan Documentary Counters Channel 4 'War Crimes' scoop

We had published Channel 4 at Hindu World Vision.

We then used strongest words of condemnation though after putting LTTE’s despicable Violations so it not end up giving new lease to LTTE.

It was deeply distressing.

I was checking Population census shown at recent Ch4 Video “Fresh evidence” while I stumbled upon this Video.

I did the check because I became sceptic regarding some seeming facts that could not be ascertained.

The Census discrepancy shown I remembered was already trumpeted by a Christian Missionary whom I know as a Liar and propogandist- a Liberation theologist.

That was when I chanced this Video after checking how many did leave and how many survive?

We would be most relieved if what is shown in this video turns out to be the real truth.

Because I know from experience that the whole civil war was started with feeding on Outrage for July 1983 riots.

Is the LTTE Remnants magnifying or even inventing ‘War Crimes’ to resurrect itself?

Worse still- is the LTTE attempting to drop roots here in India?

Though its possible detractors could say all witnesses arraigned were under pressure in this Video – this Documentary too I feel obliged to Post – since both sides needs to be heard fully.

Former Chief of Lankan Forces who alleged white flag holding Rebels were asked to be shot at the conclusion of Lankan Civil war 2 years ago was sentenced to 3 years prison term. UN is looking into fresh reports of 'credible' atrocities and crimes against humanity by Lankan forces

The Sri Lankan High Court has sentenced former army commander Sarath Fonseka to three years in prison after finding him guilty of making false allegations against the president’s brother.

He was found guilty on Friday of “spreading disaffection” over comments in a newspaper that Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, the country’s defence secretary, had ordered the killing of Tamil Tiger leaders as they tried to surrender in May, 2009.

Fonseka says he was quoted out of context in the Sunday Leader article published on December 13 of that year.

He is currently serving a 30-month term after a court martial found him guilty of corruption in military procurements.

Members of the city’s Turkish, Greek and Jewish communities joined the silent march.

It follows revelations that three neo-Nazis had been killing immigrant shopkeepers for years and police have failed to connect the murders to right-wing extremists.

Lanka Torturing Tamil Detainees- Channel 4

The War is Over? Human Rights groups have been charging Lankan regime as sadistic behind a facade of its smiles

Channel 4 has once again comeup with a report that Tamils are increasingly charged detained and tortured without trial on unsubstantiated and flimpsy grounds of ‘association with the Tamil Tigers’.

A U.K. group quotes how even women are not spared and atleast someone in a family is held without charges.

Typical of such fascist regimes like at South America- many detainees’ families have complained that scores of such victims have simply gone ‘Disappearing’.

Behind the smiles hides a Sadistic Regime says the Channel anchor and how Sri Lanka is to face an imminent scrutiny by Human Rights Organisations with United Nations Committee.

Some 12 Human Rights groups woulld place their Fornesic documents in its study about 60 specific cases of torture that it tells still goes on years after the end of a Civil War which again involved a War Crimes tragedy yet to be fully investigated and a brutal regime that could be behind a facade of apparant Reconcilation and Rebuilding efforts. Australia reports –

DETAINEES in Sri Lanka are routinely tortured, but the government is not credibly investigating the allegations, Amnesty International says.
Sri Lanka has legislation against torture, but no effective way to implement it, Yolanda Foster, the rights group’s Sri Lanka expert, said today.
Amnesty International issued a report on Sri Lanka ahead of a review by the UN Committee Against Torture tomorrow.
“There is no longer an independently functioning unit investigating torture allegations levelled against the security forces, which calls into question Sri Lanka’s commitment to ending this abhorrent practice,” Ms Foster said.

The rights group accuses police, military personnel, paramilitary forces and prison guards of routinely beating and torturing detainees. It said that during the first 14 years of the anti-torture legislation, only three prosecutions were reportedly made under the police Special Investigation Unit, which has since been sidelined.

Amnesty International said that in 2008, the government claimed 42 indictments against 90 people stemming from torture investigations in the prior four years. But the group said most of those cases never went to trial.

The group said detainees have been held arbitrarily for prolonged periods, sometimes years, without charge and that most of them are eventually released for lack of evidence. It said those tortured include criminal suspects and people with alleged links with the now defeated separatist Tamil Tiger rebels.

A number of suspects have died while in police custody in the last few months. Last month, people attacked and seriously damaged a police station after a youth died while in custody.

Care 2 Human Rights reports-

Freedom from Torture has used forensic methods to document evidence of torture through the production of medico-legal reports (MLRs) for use in the context of asylum claims by torture survivors who have fled to the UK.

Keith Best, Freedom from Torture’s Chief Executive, said:

“As well as recording serious psychological impact in virtually all of the individuals whose cases are sampled in this report, the evidence also reveals high levels of visible scarring which strongly suggests a deliberate policy of ‘branding’ and an environment where perpetrators act with impunity. The experiences documented in the report of signed confessions forced through torture, fingerprinting and the deliberate infliction of visible injuries, mean that the risk of future detention and torture for survivors on return to Sri Lanka remains high, especially given the fact that in every single one of these 35 cases release from detention was resultant on the payment of a bribe. Fourteen had reported torture on their return from periods of time spent abroad.”

The 35 individuals whose MLRs were reviewed in Freedom from Torture’s study were detained in a range of facilities around Sri Lanka and all report being targeted due to an actual or perceived association with the LTTE, often through family members, or an opposition political party. It has been widely reported that the LTTE forcibly recruited Tamils into membership and other support roles during the civil war, suggesting that a very large proportion of the Tamil population is at risk of being targeted on this basis.
