Press Statement
John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
March 21, 2013

Today’s vote in the UN Human Rights Council encourages the Government of Sri Lanka to continue on the path toward lasting peace and prosperity following decades of civil war and instability. This resolution, which builds on a similar 2012 resolution, reaffirmed that Sri Lanka must take meaningful action on reconciliation and accountability in order to move forward. The United States, together with international partners, calls upon the Government of Sri Lanka to fulfill its public commitments to its own people on these longstanding issues.

While some important progress has been made, there is much work still to be done. We look to the Government of Sri Lanka to implement the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) and to reverse recent negative developments on rule of law and human rights. The United States stands ready to assist with this vital work. I look forward to continuing our engagement with the Government of Sri Lanka and strengthening our friendship with the Sri Lankan people.

Aney, GoSL...

We appreciate what you've been doing and all that, but you said you'd act on reconciliation & accountability by implementing the LLRC's recommendations, no? Just do it, will you...

Also, rule of law and human rights have been going down. Make them go up. (Do as I say, not as I do.)

Let me know if you need any help. We'll be in touch.

Kind Regards,
Uncle Sam.

PS: Refresh my memory - What exactly did the LLRC recommend?

Washington, DC
March 23, 2012

The United Nations Human Rights Council’s 19th Regular Session helped spur action on a series of important human rights situations around the world, in part due to vigorous U.S. engagement. The Council took robust action to address the ongoing carnage in Syria, beginning with a high-level urgent debate during the Council’s opening week, followed by the adoption of two resolutions on Syria – one focused on humanitarian access and the second extending the international Commission of Inquiry on Syria.

Other actions included the adoption of a resolution on post-conflict reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka, and mandate renewals for the special rapporteurs on Iran, North Korea, and Burma. Council members also worked cooperatively with Libya and Yemen on resolutions to enshrine their commitments to protect and promote human rights.

The United States also reaffirmed its strong opposition to a series of anti-Israel measures that continue unnecessarily to politicize the Council’s human rights agenda. Our persistence in combating the Council’s enduring anti-Israel bias, coupled with our successful efforts to confront human rights violations around the world, underscores the importance of United States leadership and engagement at the Human Rights Council and across the UN system.

Copy paste from wikipedia, so might not be 100% accurate, if these recommendations are controversial the government should have appointed "suitable" persons who would have come up with a list of recommendations that could have been implemented.


-Further investigations should be carried out regarding four particular incidents which caused death or injury to civilians, on possible implication of the security forces.
- Necessary investigations should be carried out into specific allegations of disappearances after surrender/arrest, and where such investigations produce evidence of any unlawful act on the part of individual members of the Army, the wrongdoers should be prosecuted and punished.
- Take due account on surrendered LTTE cadres against whom investigations reveal prima facie material for prosecution.
- IHL regime should take into account the grey areas in the existing legal framework applicable to internal conflicts involving states and non state armed groups.
-A professionally designed household survey should be conducted covering all affected families in all parts of the island to ascertain firsthand the scale and the circumstances of death and injury to civilians, as well as damage to property during the period of the conflict.
- Institute an independent investigation into Channel 4 videos.
- A special commissioner should be appointed to investigate alleged disappearances and provide material to the Attorney general to initiate criminal proceedings as appropriate.
- Death certificates should be issued and monetary recompense should be provided where necessary. Steps should be taken to effectively implement the amendment to the Registration of Deaths Act (2006).
- Appoint an independent advisory committee to monitor and examine detention and arrest of persons under any regulations made under the Public Security Ordinance or the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).
- Domestic legislation should be framed to specifically criminalize enforced or involuntary disappearances.
-Prepare a centralized and comprehensive database containing a list of detainees and make that available to their next of kin.
-All illegal armed groups should be disarmed.
-Grant the legal ownership of land to those who have been resettled.
- In instances where there is prima facie evidence of conscription of children as combatants (by both LTTE and TMVP), any such alleged cases should be investigated and offenders must be brought to justice.
- Increased employment opportunities should be provided to those in the former conflict affected areas.
- An inter-agency task force mandated to addressing the needs of vulnerable groups like women, children, elderly and disabled, must be established.
- Investigate and inquire into alleged incidents of serious violations of human rights including the 2006 Trincomalee massacre and the 2006 massacre of 17 aid workers.
-The land policy of the governments should not be an instrument to effect unnatural changes in the demographic pattern of a given province.
- A National Land Commission (NLC) should be established in order to propose appropriate future national land policy guidelines.
- All political parties should arrive at a bipartisan understanding on national land policy and recognize it as a national issue. Land policy should not be used as a tool to gain narrow political advantage.
-The role and capacity of the Rehabilitation of Persons, Properties and Industries Authority (REPPIA) should be reviewed, giving its primary focus in providing compensatory relief for persons affected by the conflict. Ex-LTTE combatants and next of kin should also be considered eligible for compensatory relief.
- Involvement of the security forces in civilian activities in North Eastern Province should be phased out. Private lands should be used giving reasonable time lines.
- A proper investigation should be carried out on the alleged involvement of Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman and Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan in the 1990 massacre of Sri Lankan Police officers.
-A full investigation should be done on the alleged acts of extortion committed by members of the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP).
-Steps should be taken to neutralise the activities of a gang led by a person called Major Seelan in connection with offences of abduction, extortion and robbery using the security forces facilities as a cover.
-Units of the Attorney General's department should be set up in the provinces to guide and advise the Police regarding criminal investigations, prosecutions and other matters touching upon the criminal justice system.
-An independent Public Service Commission should be established without delay to ensure that there is no political interference in the public service.
- A good-faith effort should be taken to develop a consensus on power devolution, building on what exists – both, for maximum possible devolution to the periphery, as well as power sharing at the centre.
-Learning of each other's languages should be made a compulsory part of the school curriculum.
-All Government offices should have Tamil-speaking officers at all times. Police Stations should have bi-lingual officers on a 24-hour basis.
-A proactive policy should be implemented to encourage mixed schools serving children from different ethnic and religious backgrounds.
- Government should engage with the so-called 'hostile diaspora groups' constructively and address their concerns.
-National anthem should be sung simultaneously in two languages to the same tune.
-Laws should be strictly enforced on the instances of hate speech that contributes to communal disharmony.
- A separate event should be set apart on the National Day (4 February) to express solidarity and empathy with all victims of the tragic conflict and pledge the collective commitment to ensure that there should never be such blood-letting in the country again.

Both ruling party & opposition politicians should stop making raucous statements based on their personal agendas & determine to frame an everlasting solution for future generations to live in harmony avoiding another bloodbath after decades. Government is given, I guess, a final opportunity to rethink & act intelligently & honestly before facing the devastating consequences later. Whatever consequences may come up at later stage, shall be shouldered & tortured by common people but not the affluent class.

We need to make changes which are good for our country..... not to satisfy so called hyprocritic international community. But knowing their hypocritic nature we need to prepare our country even for worse case scenario. For that we need to identify our real friends and should make tight contacts with them while trying to make new honest friends.

US-resolution against the Govt., not country- UNP
By Lashane Cooray

The US- sponsored resolution at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) was brought against the Government of Sri Lanka and not the country itself, United National Party (UNP) Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella stated.

“The UNP is willing to sit down with the Government and implement the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation report (LLRC), for the love of the country and not for the love of the Government”, MP Kirielle further stated.

The government scoffed us when we warned that the international community is important to the country, MP Kiriella added.

“70% percent of the money in the Sri Lankan stock market is tied up with US investments. Now GSP+ is no more at a loss of 1.5 billion Dollars to Sri Lanka. 60% of the exports are to EU and USA” MP Lakshman Kiriella stated. (Ceylon Today Online)

See what Dr.S.Swami says;

New Delhi, 22 March, (Asiantribune.com):

The draft resolution of the United States is a victory for Sri Lanka, since no one has called the human rights violation as State sponsored.The Janata Party President Dr. Subramanian Swamy

Dr. Subramanian Swamy while condemning Government of India for failing to take a clear cut stand at the United Nations Human Rights Council, he has also urged the Government of Sri Lanka to take the necessary initiatives for the core problem of devolution of power in the Constitution.

Also Dr. Subramanian Swamy has told that TNA should also join the Select Committee of Sri Lankan Parliament and make unanimous recommendations for devolution.

The Janata Party President Dr. Subramanian Swamy in a press release revealed that the modified United States draft presented on March 19th toned down in its earlier draft some of the sharp language and impossible demands presented in February. He added that this last draft was eminently reasonable and worthy of unconditional support.

Since core of the Resolution called for placing faith for one more year on the Government of Sri Lanka to carry through the implementation of its own human rights investigation reports such as the LLRC, and the adoption of the Thirteenth Amendment for devolution, said Dr. Subramanian Swamy.

Given below the full text of the press release of Janata Party Chairman Dr. Subramanian Swamy:

Brgin Text “I condemn the stand of the Government of India for failing to take a clear cut stand at the United Nations Human Rights Council when the United States draft was put to vote for adoption.

Either India ought to have voted unconditionally with the United States or it should have unconditionally opposed the Resolution. If it had done so, it would have got appreciation in the eyes of the world and it would have been better than falling between two stools.

The modified United States draft presented on March 19th toned down in its earlier draft some of the sharp language and impossible demands presented in February. This last draft was eminently reasonable and worthy of unconditional support. Since core of the Resolution called for placing faith for one more year on the Government of Sri Lanka to carry through the implementation of its own human rights investigation reports such as the LLRC, and the adoption of the Thirteenth Amendment for devolution.

In an oblique way the United States draft is a victory for Sri Lanka since no one has called the human rights violation as State sponsored.

Therefore, I now urge the Government of Sri Lanka to take the necessary initiatives for the core problem of devolution of power in the Constitution. The TNA should also join the Select Committee of Sri Lankan Parliament and make unanimous recommendations for devolution.End Text

Million dollar question is how to devolute the power ?
Can GOSL give total military {either army(three forces) or police} power ?
Can GOSL give total land power ?
(Here total means without any interference from Central government.)
What we can give is the administrative power. Will the tamil politicians accept that ?

It is very simple. We have to work according to our constitution together with all amendments. Specially 13 amendment
