ICP asks UN to confirm receiving NPC Genocide Resolution

[TamilNet, Thursday, 05 March 2015, 08:57 GMT]
The Inner City Press on Tuesday questioned the UN Spokesperson in New York whether the UN would confirm receiving the Genocide Resolution passed by the Northern Provincial Council given to the UN Under-Secretary General Jeffrey Feltman who visited Jaffna on Monday. The spokesperson said: “I will”. On Wednesday, the ICP asked again that what would Mr Feltman do with the genocide resolution and the question went unanswered, according to ICP on Thursday. In ‘seeking truth’, when the Colombo government came out with the LLRC report that paves way for a structural genocide of Eezham Tamils, the report was ‘accepted’ by the UN as model for its Geneva deliberations. But, when the NPC came out with the resolution on investigating protracted genocide, the visiting UN official questioned the NPC Chief Minister, why this resolution now.



In 2013, the then UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Ms Navanetham Pillay visiting the island, said that no-one uttered the word ‘genocide’ to her during her visit, despite confirmed reports that she was categorically told about the genocide by people whom she met.

On Monday, when news reporters in Jaffna asked the NPC Chief Minister, Justice C.V. Wigneswaran whether he had submitted the NPC resolution on genocide to the visiting UN Under-Secretary General, he replied that the resolution was among the documents he submitted to the visiting official.

The highest UN official, who was dealing with the war that had a genocidal end, was Mr Ban Ki-moon's Chef de Cabinet, Mr Vijay K. Nambiar, an Indian diplomat. Now, the highest UN official, the Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs, Mr Jeffrey Feltman, dealing with the Geneva deliberations is a US diplomat.

On Tuesday night, a section of Tamil youth activists in Jaffna, perceiving collaboration with deception by a hierarchical section of the ITAK that was ‘articulating’ in Vavuniyaa in a Central Committee meeting on Sunday, responded by hanging effigies of Mr M.A. Sumanthiran, who has been vocal in recent days in advocating domestic investigation with UN supervision, instead of an international investigation by the UN.
