    This will make diaspora happy. Moon does not have a spine to say no to the west

    [We have made it clear to the Secretary General that we don t see a necessity for a group of experts to probe into accountability issues in Sri Lanka since the Government has already taken meaningful steps towards addressing these concerns, the Minister said.]

    After our H(z)ero`s utterings.....

    :(

    Now the gov has to repair the damage!! In fact rejecting the `Early pardon` by MR is absolutely right!

    [Anyone who talks about

    war crimes obviously doesn t know what they are talking about, it is

    mere speculation, no one has yet been able to substantively say, there

    had been violations of international humanitarian law.]

    if why afraid...??

    This is one of the rare issues that gov and other opposition parties (including JVP) are having same opinion.

    While cooperating with UN and IC, gov has to firmly reject all sort of influences on internal affairs.

    To do that through a backing from friendly countries, gov has to speed-up settling IDPs, which is the main issue for UN.

    The real reson behind the UN panel is sri lankan government cheating public.

    it is mandatory for UN to get involve in sri lanka not a requirement.

    What UN emphasiss is lack ACCOUNTABILITY and HUMAN RIGHTS of the part of sri lankans government for its citizens. that is quite right.

    today there is no accountability of politicians to public, they rob the country from left to right, all money goes to as politicians wishes, public is lied, misguided, made to belive totally manipulated stories.

    on the other hand, it is human rights. if the defeated presidental candidate is lying in the jail and all goernment media, courts, highest officers can be manipulated to take revange, then what about ordinary citizens human rights????

    It is a very good action by the UN.

    why always the government highlight UN is worried about war crime??? just to sling mud to SF.

    what about other two issues by UN. ACCOUNTABILITY and HUMAN RIGHTS????

    tOday everybody is accuontable to MR, not to the rule of law of the country, or its citizens.

    highest level of gevernment officers like Parliament,IGP, Chief justice, Army commander, attorney genral,election commisioner all are bribed systamatically and taken over by MR, even the sri lankan cricket team. there is no rule of law, only law is what Mahinda Rajapaksha wish.

    they all are dancing to MR tune, so there is no accountability to public. that is the core issue.

    [so there is no accountability to public.]

    But the ground reality is, people dont care what MR is doing and what is happening to IDPs and journalists, as long as people get some hopes for salary increase, decrease of prices, and guarantee for safety.

    So, they just think, SLFP is the party can do those things since MR is already settled for 7 years. That will make sure the next gov under MR.

    Only thing we can expect in next parliament is, fever seats for JVP, same for UNP, and some representation from Tamils. SLFP will have a comfortable win, if they dont get 2/3.

    People have no experiences of see-through and accountability in gov actions and they dont expect or care about that a lot. All corrupted politicians know this sad truth and get the max use of it.

    [People have no experiences of see-through and accountability in gov actions and they dont expect or care about that a lot]

    people have no experience, that is why UN is worried. UN never get involved in developed countries because people can manage the country.

    But in our case people are helpless, they made to belive they are living in a heaven, the world best country but reality is different.

    country dont have a budget for 2010, did any body make any noise about it??? no, nobody even aware of it. that is why UN is more worried.
