Mr. Ban Ki-Moon
Secretary-General, United Nations
New York, NY, US

 Dear Ban Ki-Moon:

Re:   United Nations (UN) has failed in its mandate to protect civilians in the last months of Sri Lanka’s battle against LTTE terrorists – The “ Charles Petrie Report” is leaked to the Media.

This reminds me of Harry Belafonte’s song, Ban Ki-Moon

‘There are holes in UNs buckets, dear Ban Ki, dear Ban Ki, there are holes in UN buckets as Sri Lanka Reports get leaked;

Then plug them with Lanka’s ‘JUST BUG-OFF GLUE’  dear Ban Ki, dear Ban Ki, then plug them with Lanka’s ‘JUST BUG-OFF GLUE’ dear Ban Ki, as this very well  might help!’
