In What Capacity Does Balasingham Challenge The Sri Lankan Judiciary?And Can There Not be Better Representation At The Peace Talks?
Periscope-Global Sinhala Village for LankaWeb
It has to be asked WHO IS ANTON BALASINGHAM TO ISSUE WARNINGS AND THREATS TO THE SRI LANKAN JUDICIARY ON A CONSTITUTIONAL DECISION TAKEN IN THE INTERESTS OF SRI LANKA AND GLOBAL TERRORISM AND SET IN PLACE THROUGH THE ACCORDS OF INTERNATIONAL LAW? IN FACT WHO LET HIM INTO THE PEACE TALKS IN THE FIRST PLACE WHEN HE SHOULD BE SOUGHT AFTER TOGETHER WITH HIS WIFE AND THE REST OF THE NEFARIOUS DESPOTS OF THE LTTE WHO ORCHESTRATED SO MUCH HAVOC AND DESTRUCTION ON SO MANY? IT IS AN ABERRATION OF THE LAW AS WELL AS VERY FORTUITOUS FOR HIM THAT HE TOO IS NOT BEING SOUGHT AFTER AND EVENTUALLY THROWN INTO THE SAME CELL AS PRABHAKARAN.
And the amazing nerve of the man is that he is all smiles with the Sri Lankan delegation impeccably dressed in civvies handshaking (make that hands shaking!) and walking around in the manner of a St Christoper just about to rescue Sri Lanka from its troubles with the myopic Prof.G.L Peiris sitting on his shoulders while the malice in his countenance in keeping with his unofficial title Doctor Death seems to permeate the minds of all the skeptics who are beginning to gather momentum in doubt and apprehension that this Peace Process could very well be a farce.
It is about time the man was educated in the semantics and terminology applicable to Democracy and Governance and that an internal armed rebellion by terrorists does not constitute an Act of War despite the cross eyed pundits who so identify it to suit their own convenienceit, it is simply an act of anarchy against a legal institution called a Government by an illegal organization of individuals called terrorists.For all the education the man is supposed to have had it appears to be a pathetic representation of the area in which he was educated so as to be unable to make the simplest of definitions.
If the Norwegian backed Peace Process is scuttled according to his irrelevant apprehensions through what he terms "digging up the past", then by his definition all the war crimes and crimes against humanity which were buried until discovered would have had to be ignored and "not dug up"although history has proved that they bear testimony to the fact that there can never be any real peace until the losses of lives involved and the treasonous motivations of anarchy are atoned for and the perpetrators of these crimes punished to the maximin with no reservations. Hitler, Eichman, Mengeler, Pol Pot, Idi Amin (the one that got away!) Cheuchescu, Milasovich,The leaders of the Ruwanda Massacre and the rest of the murderous brigade would have got away Scot Free! Add to the list Velupillai Prabhakaran and the picture is somewhat complete. Well, Mr Doctor will have to accept as a fact of life that every action has an equal and opposite reaction (courtesy of Prof. Albert Einstein) and that Prabhakaran is no exception. He will have to account for his excesses and face the punishment eventually and the sooner the better!
In a final ignorant mockery of the Sri Lankan Judiciary, this so called emissary of Peace has challenged its decision in an all but laughable expression suggesting that quote" the LTTE's 'System of Courts' could try the Sri Lankan Leaders and sentence them to 2000 years in a tit for tat exercise" and truly an exercise in gnat brained verbosity often displayed in a confused mind.
What has been set in place by the High Court of Sri Lanka is justice for the guilty and condemned and what spews forth from the muted expressions of Balasingham must surely be driven by a fear for his own safety within the Sri Lankan Judicial Enclave regardless of Government denials that the Court Ruling was an independent decision and not one of its own statutes.
Sri Lanka appears to have many options for peace through the proper channels of Presidential and Constitutional Accords and it has no need to humor a group of terrorists seeking their own security through verbal banter such as those of Balasingham and his threats and exactly what the Wickremasinghr Administration seems to be doing at this precise moment with expected returns down the road which could easily evaporated into a non existent mirage.
To weigh the sincerities and the credibilities of the minority peace seekers, it is imperative that they denounce all their vile objectives completely through signed accords as the President has always maintained and not indulge in a charade designed to hoodwink the World and those gullible within the Nation.One needs no periscope nor magnifying glasses to perceive what goes on presently through LTTE actions in the North and North East.The Muslim Community will corroborate easilt the factualities.True enough a price has to be paid for peace but not through compromising a Nation's Integrity, a circumvention of Constitutional Accords and attempted intimidation by the likes of Anton Balasingham.
Balasingham's outbursts have not indicated complete sincerity towards real peace as the chink in his armor towards insincerity has been displayed by his recent dialogue which is definitely non conducive towards a lasting peace as there are too many pre-conditions favouring his beloved LTTE who are probably on their way out of existence.Perhaps he should step down and hand over his reins to a more moderate leader with better education, insight and the power to communicate rationally on behalf of the entire Tamil Community and not a fragmented splinter group.
