Naveen Pillai naive or nonsensical?
United Nations Human Rights Commissioner Naveen Pillai girding her
loins to resume her failed witch-hunt against Sri Lanka at the Geneva
Council sessions in March last year, this time, too, has in a manner of
speaking --’got her knickers in a twist’. Sri Lanka has categorically
stated that it totally rejects resolutions which violate the sovereignty
of this country. Article 2 of the United Nations Charter enjoins every
member nation to refrain from threatening or using force to undermine
the territorial integrity or territorial independence of any other
member essentially which are the domestic jurisdiction of any state, or
require the members to submit such matters to settlement under the
United Nations Human Rights
Commissioner Naveen Pillai
The government has said, and very rightly so, that it will summarily
reject any Resolution against this country as it has fulfilled the
requirements of the UN as a member country.
Last Thursday night, I was watching the well known CNN presenter
Christaine Amanpour interviewing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s,
spokesman when she said that the latest impediments to President Obama
visiting Russia were the ban on Child Adoption by Americans and the
protests against the Russian government. To which the Russian replied
that both these were domestic matters. This was clearly a reference to
Article 2 of the UN Charter, which prohibits other member countries
intervening in the domestic matters of another member.
Naveen Pillai has consistently tried to poke her stodgy fingers into
the domestic affairs of Sri Lanka in direct violation of the UN Charter,
although she as Human Rights Commissioner is a paid employee of the UN.
Pillai must be sacked from her post for over stepping her mandate.
Israel, too, has shoed off the Human Rights? Council. The irony of it is
that the US which proposed the motion against Sri Lanka in March 2012,
has blocked all Human Rights Resolutions against Israel. O Tempore O
Israel Prime Minister Natanyahu has such contempt for Naveen Pillai
and the UN Human Rights Council that he has described it as a
‘hypocritical body’ and said any UN fact finding team will be barred
from entering Israel. The usually garrulous Human Rights Commissioner
has been rendered impotent. No sound, no fury as in the case of Sri
Lanka, but only silence.
While Naveen Pillai had the brass to warn Sri Lanka not to intimidate
citizens who lobbied for the American motion against Sri Lanka last
year. If she seeks to protect blood sucking NGOs representing Western
countries and their ilk, well fed and well funded, making millions of
dollars by selling their country and their souls. Undoubtedly, there is
a special place in Hell reserved for these Judases. These made merry
during the 30 years of LTTE terrorism styling Prabhakaran and his gangs
of murdering, marauding, ruthless criminals who even committed
horrendous acts of genocide of Sinhalese, and Muslims - men, women and
children, as ‘Freedom Fighters’.
I have seen the bodies of women and infants slaughtered by the LTTE
terrorists, while suckling their mothers’ breasts. And the West
including media and their hireling NGOs call these terrorist brutes
‘Freedom Fighters’. Freedom fighters, my foot!
And what were Naveen Pillai and the UNHCR doing to end this naked
inhuman terrorism? Sweet nothing.

The head of the Human Rights Council Naveen Pillai who bares her
fangs at the drop of a hat when it comes to Sri Lanka, is a toothless
tiger when it comes to Human Rights violations committed by Western
countries, or those backed by them. A case in point is Israel, where all
Resolutions of Human Rights violations against it, were blocked by the
US and the ‘high fallutin’ Human Rights Commissioner was silent as a
When it comes to dealing with big and powerful states Bully Girl
Pillai is as quiet and silent, impotent..Or else she will undoubtedly
lose her job. So, she confines herself to hunting with the big Western
bullies as they hound the small states. Truth is the most powerful
weapon. And Sri Lanka has the truth on her side. Remember how the brave
and courageous David felled the giant Goliath?
What does Naveen Pillai have to say about the racial discrimination
in Britain in France?
The thousands of civilians killed by the Coaltion Forces in
Afgahnistan led by the US. The Drone massacres.
One hundred and ninety two Iraqi civilians have filed action in the
British High Court for alleged mistreatment by British Forces based in
Iraq. These allegations include abuse and torture of the level of the
infamous US run Abu Gharib jail. The prosecutor appearing for them has
called for an independent judge led Inquiry into the conduct of British
Forces in Iraq during the period March 2003 to December 2008. In 2012,
the Court of Appeal ruled that the body set up by the British Ministry
of Defence to investigate allegations of mistreatment by British troops.
The Iraq Historic Allegations Team (IHAT), lacked “the requisite
independence” and ministers had failed comply with obligations under
human rights legislation.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa pulled no punches when in a stirring
Independence Day Address, he emphasised the fact Sri Lanka was a
sovereign State which would brook no interference from countries trying
to poke their fingers into our affairs to fulfill their insidious
The West was firmly told that Sri Lanka respects and adheres to the
United Nations Charter which stipulates the upholding of the principle
of the sovereign equality of all its members. Fellow member States must
respect its sovereignty as a member State. Nothing contained in the
Charter authorized the UN to intervene in matters which are essentially
within the domestic jurisdiction of any State or shall require the
Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter.

Article 2 of the UN Charter states that the United Nations
Organisation is based on the sovereign equality of all is members. All
members in their international relations shall refrain, in their
relations, from the threat or use of force against the territorial
integrity or political independence of any State or any other manner
inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations.
Ever since this country gained Independence these bully boys from the
West have treated Sri Lanka as their political backyard, an operational
base for their regional and international machinations.
If we do not cow down to them and act according to their dictates,
the US, Britain and France threaten us with sanctions such as the recent
European Union threat to boycott our garment exports. They secretly fund
and engineer strikes, student agitation and other anti national activity
to weaken the government and cause its downfall.
The government has extended an invitation to UN Human Rights
Commissioner Pillai to visit Sri Lanka and apprise herself of the true
situation in this country, instead of basing her decisions and views on
unreliable two bit NGO pied piper reports tailored to meet the insidious
agendas of the Western countries, hell bent on destabilising the
lawfully elected government of Sri Lanka and installing one which will
carry out their dictates.
