UNHRC Resolution 30/1 was to create instability for intervention

The President, the Foreign Minister and the Government deserve a big bouquet of thanks from the people of Sri Lanka for the stand taken to disassociate with the UNHRC resolution 30/1 which was co- sponsored by the previous Government.


The said resolution was based on a load of misinformation supplied by the LTTE fronts, their paid activists, NGO movers and shakers, while Ban Ki-moon and Darusman committee members manoeuvred it the way some of the Western nations intended. The objective was not only to destabilize Sri Lanka, by introducing structural and organizational changes to the constitution of the country, but also by victimizing the members of the defence force who stood by the country in defeating the Tamil Tigers, the world’s most brutal terrorist organization, when they were killing thousands of unarmed civilians.


But, the proponents of the resolution completely ignored the large scale use of civilians by the LTTE as "source of new recruits, a labour pool, a political chip to bargain to attract foreign intervention, It was applied in 1995 and 2007. But, in 2008, some 350-450,000 people and Tiger personnel were withdrawing to Nandikadal..." Subsequent, interviews by Fr. Rohan Silva and D. Siddharthan have condensed the information gleaned from the rescued Tamil peoples and demonstrated that a good segment of those trapped believed that the West would intervene and save them and the LTTE. In a word, the LTTE believed this would happen and their certainty rubbed off on the people around them. The Tamil Tigers carried on their murders, hiding within such a human shield, and when finally Sri Lankan forces marched onto this territory nearly 300,000 civilians were rescued. The resolution extends only a blind eye to the liberation of 300.000 Tamil civilians but thrives on the concocted tales spun by the interested parties who are keenly looking forward to a weakened Sri Lanka. Further, the intervention plan of the West was shattered, forcing them to consider the next option of driving Sri Lanka up the wall and agree to the resolution 30/1.


The resolution 30/1 was, in short, a statement of punishment for Sri Lanka being obstinate to the dictates of the Western alliance and not stopping the war as and when they required. The resolution was to make Sri Lanka humble in the face of the pro-LTTE pro separatist representatives and to provide an opportunity for them to keep the pot a - boiling. As long as there is a conflicting situation in the country, the outside forces can either attempt to influence and, or intervene to achieve their ends,


The imposition of such an array of restrictive conditions on Sri Lanka by the UNHRC resolution while the war crimes charges levelled against its movers are swept under the carpet, becomes too obvious to any discriminating observer.


Now, that our national minded government has taken a decision to throw the resolution to the wolves, the nation and her people can breathe freely
