Sri Lanka Government again refuses monitors access to North

    It did not give access to army headquarters because Sarath Fonseka`s was a inside job. Although GOSL tried to pin it on the LTTE it did not have evidence to support this.

    This time around it was a offensive operation and letting SLMM in would prove it beyond a doubt. So GOSL is holding back until things calm down.

    I think the IC has got the message. International response for that and the bomb blast is almost zero. Even Kofi Annan`s office had carefully selected the words in responding.

    GOSL has the right to assess on merit basis the eligibility of the monitors to go into the North. Administration on merit basis must first be exhausted before `ownership` meausres through discretionary powers are used.

    That is also the way to use Racial Discrimination laws. Given that most of these monitors are from races foreign to Sri Lankans, it is important that the GOSL consciously and expressly overrides race based assessments. This starts with using the merit base - both Objectively as well as Subjectively measurable.

    There is no purpose of having a SLMM today. It is a joke. Let them verify the dead cows on LTTE side.

    According to you I have glorified or sponsored terrorism? That shows that you do not do the work to KNOW. Don`t make irresponsible statements.
