Ban and Nambiar confer with generals and officials of Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Thursday, 24 February 2011, 15:19 GMT]
The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and his Chief of Staff Vijay Nambiar, on Wednesday had a meeting with SL Attorney General Mohan Pieris and foreign secretary Romesh Jayasinghe as well as the war crimes accused general Shavendra Silva and Palitha Kohona, the Inner City press (ICP) reported. Nambiar was hiding for photographs when Ban shook hands with Silva. Colombo converted Silva into UN ambassador to give him immunity and to see UN legitimating him, the ICP said. Both Ban and Nambiar are accused for their failure to prevent the killings of several thousands of Tamil civilians and even accused of indirect green signalling of the killings.

Colombo earlier denied that its Foreign Secretary and Attorney General were in New York to meet the UN Secretary General.

The SL Foreign Secretary’s visit was a ‘private visit’ said SL Deputy Foreign Minister to Daily Mirror.

Meanwhile, on the issue of the case at the International Criminal Court involving Nambiar along with Palitha Kohona, the ICP reported that the UN spokesperson Martin Nesirky dodged verification. Earlier, his deputy Farhan Haq denied the involvement of the name of Nambiar in the case, saying that the “the Inner City Press story is inaccurate; there has been no complaint formally filed at the International Criminal Court.”

The ICC case filing, as reported by Australian media and cited by ICP, had a sentence that there is “a basis to question whether Vijay Nambiar was in fact an innocent neutral intermediary or in fact a co-perpetrator within the negotiation related community.”
