Deportation of Karuna: A hot potato as a wedge?

  • 7 Jul 2008 20:24:05 GMT

    This editorial shows that the Sinhala Buddhist supremacists treat the ethnic conflict as a terrorist problem. Why they could not find a solution to the Sinhala Only Act or oppression or ethnic cleansing of the NorthEast or the Govt services before the LTTE was founded is to be forgotten.

    Karuna Group was responsible for abduction of businessmen and extorted large sums of money in excess of 35 millions Rs. Just after he left LTTE his wife deposited Rs 25,000,000 in a Colombo bank as reported by Daily Mirror i Feb 2004. Many parents have given sworn testimony incriminating him and the SLA of abducting their children. Defending such a criminal or comparing the freedom fighters LTTE is the obsession Sinhala racists suffer from.

    Karuna has spilled beans to Londin CID and therefore the SLA and the Rajapakse brothers are in the docks. That is the reason the govt refused permission for the CID to visit Sri Lanka and investigate his allegations. UK govt let the SL govt off the hook.

    It is not a problem for the SL Military Intelligence who handled 5 Tamil MPs , 17 aid workers to find a solution to Karuna if he creates any problem. No one can hide under the shallow sand the world can see everybody as he or she is.

    Kauna is a Ex LTTE`er what else,can expect from him..?

    He does what he was... by VP in another way.

    Do any LTTE supporters urge VP to give up arms...?

    Then why most try to stop military advances..

    UK is wise to get rid of Karuna,after all he went there to see his family in London.Perhaps with the correct passport he could go there again because if is to be branded a war criminal,then UK must point the same finger at many in that country.I don`t think they would like to open any can of worms and UK being a very matured democracy,it is not in the public interest keep him here at the expense of the UK tax payer,after all he didn`t commit any such war crime in UK.Good show old Blighty and full marks,I say!

    [after all he(Karuna)didn`t commit any such war crime in UK. ]

    General Pinochet also did not commit any war crime in the UK but he was arrested. Karuna or whoever is known to have committed war crime must be tried so that it becomes a deterrent to others.

    Trying Karuna will point the finger at others including VP, MR, Got Rajapakse or Sareth Fonseka . Those who commit crimes must be tried and punished.

    If the mighty US takes the view that whoever is guilty of not honouring UN resolutions must be made to do so the world will be a better place. US treats some countries such as Israel and Sri Lanka as friendly and some others, Yugoslavia or Iran as enemy make the world a more dangerous place.
