Rajiva Wijesinha, The Warrior at UNHRC Bashes NGO, Tamil Diaspora, Genocide Tag, EU
The gent whom Europeans most scared of when he takes the mic at UNHRC. He says what he thinks, clearly and fearlessly. When he speeks, council stands still.
HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL DISCUSSES REPORTS ON INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS, TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS, PREVENTION OF GENOCIDE, AND MINORITY ISSUES
10th Session UNHRC, 13 March 2009
Official Brief summary doesnt include what he said on Genocide, thus UNHRC baised:
RAJIVA WIJESINHA (Sri Lanka) expressed gratitude to the Representative of the Secretary-General on the rights of the internally displaced, both for his assistance with regard to finding durable solutions for the long-term displaced and for his advice with regard to current problems. He had noted that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) were preventing civilians from getting away and instead held them as human shields. The Special Representative had expressed some concerns about the right of the internally displaced to freedom of movement. However, he should also recognize the appalling nature of suicide bombing, and the need for security screenings in that regard. Sri Lanka regretted the inadequate nature of some of the camps set up for those earlier displaced and was determined, even if United Nations agencies thought that Sri Lanka was exceeding the limits placed on relief provisions, to provide better conditions for the recently displaced.
