To most of us the announcement of UNHRC’s Technical Team visit comes as a surprise but nothing that should cause frenzy other than the fact that most UN visits are generally not without bias and not without agenda. There is every possibility that the conclusive report is already drafted.

I have just read the statement issued by your outfit, Amnesty International (AI) which will be discussed at the UN Human Rights Council Session in Geneva later this month.

As requested by you I am forwarding my comments on some aspects of the report of CCIA for your consideration.
As a Tamil domiciled in Australia I served the Tamil community by editing the only Tamil community newspaper, UTHAYAM. I ran it for 14 years My experiences in dealing with the Tamil community, both in Australia and in Sri Lanka, make me feel sad about the callous way in which the media is exploiting the suffering of our Tamil people for self-serving ends.
