'Biased UN official misleads humanity, safely sitting in Colombo' - Vanni journalist

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 January 2009, 17:59 GMT]
The UN spokesman in Colombo, Gordon Weiss, reported by AFP put the number of dead civilians inside safety zone on Monday only at ten, adding that he could not say who was responsible for the civilian casualties. “ We don’t know where the firing came from”, AFP quoted him saying. The UN, which has a universal franchise to intervene on behalf of civilians trapped in war has not only forfeited all its rights, including the right to monitor what is happening, to the genocidal government of Colombo, but also comes out with blatant lies aimed at protecting the perpetrator of war crime, accused Mr. Ravi, a journalist in Vanni.

The AFP on Monday highlighted the military spokesman Udaya Nanayakkara dismissing TamilNet report of 100 civilian deaths, as ‘cheap propaganda’. The latest TamilNet report, based on eyewitness accounts and doctor’s accounts put the civilian deaths at 300 and the number of injured at thousand, which has been confirmed by the office of the Regional Director of Health Services (RDHS), Mullaiththeevu.

International News Agencies such as AFP, which every time lament "battlefield claims from either side cannot be verified as independent journalists are barred from traveling to the conflict zone” have never taken any initiative to uphold the spirit of journalism by sending their journalists to affected parties even if it is defying the authorities. Rather they willingly accepted the reduced status to report what the government says and these agencies depend on a biased lot sitting in Colombo for the news they project to the world, said the journalist.

The war in the island of Sri Lanka is one of the rare occurrences in the contemporary human civilization in which a brutal war of genocide takes place not directly monitored by media and international agencies. For the first time in known history all international institutions of humanity handed over everything to a state that has a track record of genocidal intent.
