Dear Mr Dissanayake,

Tamil Political Grouping in the UK

First of all, congratulations to the UNP which as per my insight has earned the opportunity to form Government due to the divisions within the SLFP which to my mind, became the medium of dividing influences more strongly than usual, during the  recent Local Government Elections. One needs deep insight to identify with the opportunity.

To my mind, the above outcomes are connected through the system of Natural Justice, to the manifestations that happened recently in London also. To my mind, it is important that the UNP does not play the SLFP role if it is to successfully lead Sri Lankans into genuine Democracy.

I now refer to your letter dated 08 February 2018, regarding the   withdrawal of diplomatic status of  Brigadier Priyanka Fernando, to the Hon Joan Ryan, MP and
the Hon Siobhain McDonagh, MP of the UK Parliament - both members of All-Party Parliamentary Group for Tamils. I append  my letter to the Hon Amber Rudd, MP
Home Secretary and the Hon Boris Johnson, MP, Secretary of State for
Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs – both of UK Government - which letter was sent out on 11 February 2018.

I learnt today that you are the son of the Hon Gamini Dissanayake, who taught us Law at the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka. I recall with respect, that teacher. I however doubt that my teacher of law would have identified with the following claim of yours to the above members of UK Parliament:

Hon. Gamini Dissanayake, presidential candidate and deputy leader of the United National Party who was assassinated by the terrorist organization LTTE, the political wing which both of you surreptitiously support.’

Since you present yourself as an ‘Attorney at law (Sri Lanka)’ and  member of  the Inns of Court (Middle Temple), one is entitled to expect you to appreciate the Doctrine of Separation of Powers between Independent Bodies – for example the Sri Lankan Government and the British Government. On that basis as per my interpretation, one group is NOT entitled to express on behalf of the other.

I note that the Hon Ranil Jayawardena MP, House of Commons (UK), is listed as the Chair & Registered Contact for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Sri Lanka - the country parallel of the above group for the Tamil community in the UK. To my mind, in which is included the essence of teachings of your father, any belief-based expression made in respect of the above ladies ought to have been expressed through the Hon Ranil Jayawardena MP, in order to uphold the fundamentals of the Doctrine of Separation of Powers. As a Political representative of the Sri Lankan Government it is important that you confirm the Belief based connections available through those who are Common to you and the UK Tamil Group leaders. As per my belief such Due Processes based on Belief - confirm the Energies of those who developed those relationships and structural protections.

You state about the LTTE ‘The said organization has been banned in your country and has been designated as a terrorist organization by many countries including yours and the United States’. 

As per my knowledge of the Evidence available to the Public - those who demonstrated outside were LTTE supporters and not members of the LTTE which is proscribed in the UK. Under Section 13 of the Terrorism Act 2000, UK,  the following is classified as a proscription offence:
wear clothing or carry or display articles in public in such a way or in such circumstances as arouse reasonable suspicion that an individual is a member or supporter of the proscribed organization

If the UK Government did have such ‘reasonable suspicion’ it was the DUTY of that Government and therefore the Hon Ranil Jayawardena MP,  to initiate proceedings against such offenders. It would have been your responsibility to do likewise in Sri Lanka – as per the Sri Lankan Law and your belief as to whether or not you feel beyond reasonable doubt that a person is acting in breach of the Prevention of Terrorism Act  1978, implemented under your party’s then leader the Hon J R Jayawardene.

As you may already know,  a Tamil  asylum seeker – Mr Shantaruban has recently been issued with the notice of intention to be deported from Australia back to Sri Lanka. Many of us would have diverse feelings and/or thoughts on this. Since I do not know the person personally nor have participated in that aspect of the Tamil problem – I concluded as an Australian – that the reason was Mr Shantaruban’s lack of courage to declare that he was a member of the LTTE in Sri Lanka.

As per my experience based discovery, when we have the courage to express our belief, Natural Forces support us actively. If Mr Shantaruban did believe that he was a ‘freedom fighter’ but did not have enough belief in the Australian Authorities to make the appropriate declaration of belief – (the parallel of Vaddukoddai Resolution 1976) – then Australian Natural Forces would not actively work for him. Belief alone is enough for our inner purposes. One needs courage to harness Natural Forces to manifest the consolidated value of that belief – as per our need at that time, at that place.

If the London demonstrators did believe that they were expressing their belief, Natural Forces would support them. Likewise, Brigadier Priyanka Fernando, on behalf of the Sri Lankan Government if  he does believe in the government. Genuine belief would be clean of returns at lower levels – such as money and position rewards. The latter is strongly indicated by overseas postings being awarded to those who were in the Sri Lankan Armed Forces during the war against the LTTE. This is a factor that the British Government needs to take into account when making its decision on whether or not to deport Brigadier Priyanka Fernando.

You state in your letter:
[On the day in question 4th of February which marks the national day of independence  for our country a day of joy and celebration to all Sri Lankans, the front organizations of the LTTE which the both of you support gathered a few hundred supporters to protest outside our Embassy in the UK. What is most disturbing and offensive to us Sri Lankans was the carrying of the LTTE flag and the abusive and vituperative comments made by the protesters. Brigadier Fernando was within the premises of the SL mission and his acts cannot be questioned as diplomatically and legally he is “within Sri Lanka” and he enjoys full diplomatic immunity for acts done within the embassy compound. This tradition is accepted practice in diplomatic regulations and the tradition is followed in all countries. ]

The claim that ‘4th of February marks the national day of independence for your country a day of joy and celebration to all Sri Lankans’ effectively confirms that you celebrate separation from the British. If this were true, then Tamils who separated themselves from Sri Lanka under Sinhalese rule would mourn, as some Indigenous Australians do on 26 January. This naturally would bring the British whose net contributions to Sri Lanka  directly or indirectly, are NOT   negative in values – especially the part that is ‘home’ to those Sri Lankans  celebrating independence on 04 February, to group themselves with the Tamils to whom Sri Lanka is no longer home due to Government Policies and Actions. The common value is the ‘investment lost’ which is invoked by active celebration by a section of Sri Lankans. Tamils as a community have, through Vaddukoddai Resolution 1976,  effectively confirmed that they do not believe in the Sinhalese Governments that tookover power after 1948. Hence I conclude that your claim above is proven false.

There is also  the question of British educational titles that you have accredited yourself with. Only those of us who have paid our respects to the British as our elders – are entitled to carry such credits anywhere anytime. Those who celebrate the separation disconnect with this deeper value of the British education system and are limited to their own ‘local’ system.

You state to these ladies Both of you have been carrying a deeply hateful, vindictive and offensive campaign against Sri Lanka. At a time when brutal terrorism has been eradicated and all communities are building bridges to live as one nation your continued support to front organizations of the LTTE is self-serving and pathetic. Tell your contacts in these front organizations to contribute to their own brethren in the north and east without continuing to fuel the flames of hatred and ethnic division. Sri Lanka needs a real sense of reconciliation without individuals like you trying your utmost to break the real achievements that are being done on the ground. In any event we stand with Brig. Fernando steadfastly and he will continue as our defence attaché in UK

As indicated during a recent meeting of Sri Lankans ( , I do not ‘believe’ that the LTTE are Terrorists – any more than I believe that the Sri Lankan Armed forces nor the JVP are Terrorists. In a court of law we need to use the Belief of the Judiciary to express through language of the law and / or our own conscience as direct participants. Good and Just decisions are ultimately based on the Belief of the Judiciary. We are all part of that Judiciary when we express on the basis of our investment in the law.

On that basis, British Public and their representatives are entitled to judge for their own purposes – the behavior of both sides as per their own investments in Global standards and not Sri Lankan standards that as per my assessment, fall well short of Global standards in this issue.

Mr Dissanayake, to my mind, the right to vote is based on our belief. Our Belief however is not limited to voting time. Each time we manifest our belief  directly as individuals and/or as groups, a vote has been effectively cast.

The Australian parallel of Vaddukoddai Resolution 1976 by Tamils, is the Roach case in 2007 in our Australian Courts.

Vaddukoddai Resolution 1976 was followed by the defeat of the SLFP in the 1977 Sri Lankan National Elections. Mrs Vicki Roach successfully brought action against the Commonwealth Government headed then by the Hon John Howard to lawfully invalidate the Electoral and Referendum Amendment (Enrolment Integrity and Other Measures) Act 2006 (Cth). This legislation required the removal of prisoners serving any custodial sentence from the electoral roll for the term of their imprisonment. The injustice of this was highlighted by the Indigenous Community which was reported to be about 2.5% of the Population making up more than 25% of the national prison population. This confirmed that the laws were such as to disadvantage the indigenous population who did not understand those laws and a majority of whom did not believe in the official law makers of Australia. The authority to Administer is earned through the system of Belief. If therefore punishments are excessive, the punishing group is punished by reverse karma. Given that Indigenous Australians believed in the Land – when their latent ownership power is surfaced, the effects are exponential.

In the case of Mr Howard and his government I had already taken action through my case S51 of 2001 in the High Court of Australia on the basis of my belief that the Howard’s Administration effectively breached the Racial Discrimination Act 1975. To the extent I had actually practiced Commonness and believed that the Howard Administration had erred, that Belief would have accumulated against such Government after I had done my best but failed to have a just outcome in Courts – my powers would have been part of the powers that influenced the outcomes in Roach case followed by Mr Howard’s defeat in the 2007 Elections.

Hence if the Sri Lankan Government acts to deny the earned rights of minorities and/or punished them beyond the levels of authority earned through belief, the Government formed by majority that so punishes would weaken its own powers to govern. This will be manifested when the minorities leave it to the system of Natural Justice / Karma – after following Due Processes that they have knowledge of. In the Roach matter – Mrs Roach’s team was made up by many mainstream personalities led in Court  by Mr Ron Merkel QC,  former judge of the Federal Court of Australia. In the case of Sri Lankan Tamils the support came from global investors in Equal Opportunity Laws.

If you read the Sri Lankan Constitution at Belief level – Article 9, followed by Articles 10 and Articles 14 (1)( e) divide the nation on the basis of religious rights. Article 9 makes Buddhism foremost a fundamental right. Articles 10 and 14 (1)( e) on the other hand are based on Equal footing for all religions. Those who follow the latter would naturally merge with wider world – including Australia where State religion is expressly prohibited by Section 116 of the Constitution. Tamils & other religious minorities of Sri Lankan origin, establishing themselves in their new Nations where religious Equality is a fundamental right  - would form a distinct nation by naturally connecting to Sri Lankan Tamils & other religious minorities currently living in Sri Lanka empowering each other on the basis of need. This is a global force that is very difficult to suppress by a single coutry where government uses religion as a political power.  We Hindus strengthen our mind on this auspicious day of Maha Shivaraathri – dedicated to the Lord of the Mind – Lord Shiva. The power of the Hindu community  is strong during this period to defeat those in opposition  driven by body consciousness.

If your support for Brigadier Priyanka Fernando is belief based,  the process would have stopped within your boundaries, paving the way for the system of Natural Justice to takeover. If not, it is highly likely to weaken Sri Lankan Government’s investment in globalization.

Yours sincerely
Gajalakshmi Paramasivam
