    [UN body condemns Sri Lankan airstrike on VoT

    [TamilNet, Monday, 03 December 2007, 14:21 GMT]

    The Director-General of UNESCO, Ko´chiro Matsuura, has condemned the air strike on the Voice of Tigers radio station that killed five of the station?s staff. A total of more than ten people are reported to have been killed in the attack. ?I condemn the bombing of the Voice of Tigers radio station,? the Director-General declared, ?regardless of the content of the broadcasts aired by the Voice of Tigers, there can be no excuse for military strikes on civilian media.`

    `Such action contravenes the Geneva Convention which requires the military to treat media workers as civilians.`

    `Killing media personnel is not going to help reconciliation and I urge the authorities to ensure respect for the basic human right of freedom of expression.?

    UNESCO is the United Nations agency mandated to defend freedom of expression and press freedom. ]

    Does the Geneva convention allow LTTE to carry out assignations lay land mines kill innocents etc.

    There are no reconciliation and we at the middle of undeclared war and if LTTE win we will labor under your dictatorship and if we win you all have democratic freedom.

    If it was not for the British, Slanka still would have three kingdoms run by three kings. Rununu, Maya, Pihiti. One of which would be run by our family. British deprived me of a kingdom.

    However, fellow country men should thank the British for uniting the country and giving them back one country. Then rot set in. And mess started to build up at the hand of power hungry local rulers. If anyone is responsible for any mess, it is noting but the local rulers from 1948.

    With regard to travel advice, it is surprising that they have not mentioned record number of road blocks, traffic jam, pot holes and dangerous killer drivers, not to mention lack of public toilets in Colombo and tourist sites.

    Raigamkolla,

    Look at things positively,

    [record number of road blocks, traffic jam, pot holes and dangerous killer drivers, not to mention lack of public toilets in Colombo and tourist sites.]

    The road blocks are to ensure that everyone is safe and in trying to do that traffic jams are a by-product. While sitting in a traffic jam do some sight seeing, chat to the guy or gal sitting in the two cars on either side!

    Driving amongst dangerous killer drivers makes one a perferct driver ready to take on any eventualities on the road. If one can drive and survive on Sri Lankan roads such a person can drive anywhere in the world, be it keeping left or keeping right, as we have both systems in operation on Sri Lankan roads!

    Who needs public toilets in Sri Lanka? We have a vast expanse of beach right round the country with water available freely, there are the drains the nooks and corners all found freely to `ease ones self`, pollution is not a problem in Sri Lanka.

    Now that two major national parks are closed driving in off-road conditions is out of the itenary, so the next best thing, pot holed roads right in ones neighbourhood with stray cattle and people acting like stray cattle and wild animals for added attaraction! Lassana Lankaa!

    You are correct RK.

    It is no one to blame but our own rulers for all these problems in this beautiful country.
