Assign a place next to Noriega. He may feel better in a US prison than Welikada.

The real criminals r ltte and its supporters. Sri lankan government liberated innocent tamils from ltte terrorists' grisp. The real story can be heard from innocent tamils living in sri lanka only, not from ltte supporters who r afraid that they will lose their refugee status and benefits they recieve from deluded organizations.

A lot of killer demalu are serving time inside. I actually spend some time inside, I shared a cell with a Tamil guy, Balasubramaniam (nice people) who was serving a life sentence for importing Heroin ( like 10 kilos in a LTTE ship) to CA. this was 10 years ago in Kingston Ontario.

This pakaya and few other goons got life for importing narcotics, so the other kariyo on the outside decided to break into Collins Bay pen and take this Bala guy out, but they hired an undercover RCMP for the helicopter ride. now the guy is serving 3 life sentence. pow.

From 1985 until the early 1990s (when China White Heroin from southeast Asia’s Golden Triangle overtook heroin from Central Asia in Canadian consumer preference), the RCMP’s annual National Drug Intelligence Estimate indicated that heroin from Pakistan and Afghanistan had risen from 20 to 65% of the Canadian market. Tamil traffickers had a part of that market and one ring was mentioned in the 1991 edition of the RCMP’s report. One Tamil trafficker, Veeravagu Velmurugu, who entered Canada in 1984 as a refugee from the United States (where he had arrived in 1983 after fleeing Sri Lanka) had been jailed in Canada for life for heroin trafficking. While in Collins Bay penitentiary, he hatched a plan to escape that would have involved an aerial assault on the prison with helicopters armed with heavy machine-guns.

Let us not forget that we are dealing with a determined group of Tamils in Canada that almost pulled off the biggest jail break in Canadian history in 1991 with hired mercenaries. This one would have been so spectacular that someone would have been scripting for a thriller movie. Perhaps a mini-series. There was a chopper involved to get six guys out of the Collins Bay Prison. The guys were all Tamils who entered Canada as refugees. The plan was to take a helicopter right into the yard at Collins Bay and shoot out the guard towers with rockets, and storm the prison. The Tamils that they wanted to bring out were Veeravagu Velmurugu (conspiracy to traffic heroin), Balasubramaniam Murugesu (trafficking in heroin), Sothinathan Manikkam (Possession of heroin for the purpose of trafficking), Selvaratnam Ratnam (conspiracy to traffic in heroin), Murugadas Thamotharampillai (conspiracy to traffic in heroin), and Kathirgamanathan Subramania (possession of proceeds of crime). I doff my hat to your officers who foiled this amazing great escape.

Rajapakse, a war-criminal in hiding
[TamilNet, Friday, 21 January 2011, 00:47 GMT]

Sri Lanka's President, Mahinda Rajapakse, purportedly on a private visit to the U.S. is likely to remain in hiding with his physical whereabouts kept secret from the public to to avoid another embarrassing battle with diaspora Tamils.

While, as a matter of jurisprudential fairness, US Ambassador Butenis's acknowledgment that Rajapaksas have committed possible war-crimes in Sri Lanka should trigger a Justice Department investigation, Rajapakse would not have attempted to enter U.S. absent assurance from the State Department that he will not be subjected to any legal procedures. Rajapakse will also be aware that, unlike in the UK, in the US private citizens cannot apply for an arrest warrant.

Killing Innocent Journalists are ALSO War Crime.

Justice for Lasantha!

On January 13, President Mahinda Rajapaksa told Sri Lankan media his government had no evidence to continue an investigation into the murder of Sri Lankan editor Lasantha Wickramatunga.

Rajapaksa made this comment in response to a question raised by Lasantha's brother Lal in the presence of about 60 media personnel, including editors, publishers and government ministers, at a customary monthly presidential breakfast.

Tamil is not born from tigers nor any violent observers.

It is a sad reality that many international think tanks haven't either still identified the root cause of the Sri Lankan conflict or they are deliberately ignoring it in order to fulfil their own hidden agendas.
Sinhala Chauvinism is the mother of all the evils that is destroying this beautiful country. It is built on ignorance, arrogance, jealousy, insecurity, anger, lies and deceptions. This is a dangerous disease that has blinded the hearts and minds of the extremists. Sinhala Chauvinism or Sinhala Buddhist extremism can be compared to Nazism.
Sinhala Chauvinism is nothing to do with the ordinary Sinhala people. This is not even to do with the Sri Lankan military although they have incidentally become the tools and weapons of the extremist, racist and corrupt religious and political leaders.
