‘Shavendra Silva protected by diplomatic immunity’
The External Affairs Ministry says that it will take all necessary measures to ensure that ambassador Shavendra Silva’s ability to conduct his duties as a diplomat of the Sri Lankan government is protected.
Issuing a media release, the ministry states:
“It has been brought to the notice of the Ministry of External Affairs that an attempt has been made by an agent to deliver summons issued by a New York Court on the Deputy Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka’s Mission to the United Nations in New York Major General Shavendra Silva.
“The ministry is of the view that Ambassador Shavendra Silva as the Deputy Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka to the United Nations in New York enjoys diplomatic immunities and privileges accorded under the Convention on Privileges and Immunities of the United Nations as well as the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
Therefore, Ambassador Shavendra Silva is protected by the relevant international treaties on diplomatic relations, immunities and privileges and accepted diplomatic practices.
“Consequently, it would be responsibility of the host nation and the United Nations to ensure that Ambassador Shavendra Silva’s ability to conduct his duties as a diplomat of Sri Lanka is not hindered in any way by such disruptive activities. The Ministry of External Affairs will take all necessary measures to ensure that Ambassador Shavendra Silva’s ability to conduct his duties as a diplomat of the Government of Sri Lanka is protected.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa during his meeting with the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon while attending the 66th United Nations General Assembly Sessions in New York brought this issue to the notice of the Secretary General and requested him to extend all possible facilities and protection under the UN mandate to Ambassador Shavendra Silva to enable him to discharge his diplomatic duties efficiently and effectively during his tenure of office in New York.”

do not worry mr.S.S.Barking dogs seldom bite.and you are brave enough to fight against the bloody tamil disapora asylmant tigers.
Mr:Shavendra Silva he is real back bourn man…he know how to handle LTTE terror net work.Well done sir your the best hero!
What happened to the Presidential (and Defence Secretary) resolve to defend this accusation in courts?
Why rely on diplomatic immunity when the Chicken Brigadier himself rejected it in the first place.
If Shavendra is a chicken brigadier for you, then what the hell were you doing hiding under the bed during the war, without going to war, were you scared…? Who is the real chicken here?
guru your are the chicken peace of shit if i find you i will show your aguru to clean your mouth because still your mouth smell blood those your butcher during the your stupid game, of poorer Singhalese and Muslim was in north, now your hiding and talking like king your and your not a .your a F,,,king doge. Your go at asked pribaharan Howe is taste of hell stupid idiot,
Guru should be totally ashamed of himself!
Do you call yourself a Sinhalese? We are ashamed of you! You are a traitor who runs with the Tamil diaspora. How much are they paying you to write for them their garbage?
I do not have to be ashamed of myself. In fact, to the contrary, I am proud of myself.
I have been exposed first hand to the atrocities of the LTT and I bravely and “gunlessly” assisted people whose lives were shatterred and irreparably scarred by the violence between the communities.
Soldiers, of course, are powerful when they have guns in their hands. See how the Brigadier is reacting to the threat by Vathsala Devi. All the bravado came pouring out of his mouth only to be retracted within days and seeking refuge under the diplomatic immunity umbrella.
This is why I added the title “Chicken Brigadier”; of course he is good with the gun; he was trained to be good in a war mongering academy overseas I believe.
Well, that’s not what we want. We want naturally courageous people who do not require props such as weapons and drugs and alcohol to confront social issues.
Mahatma Gandhi was one of them. There are none in my beloved land.

I support Guru S on this matter.
Yes, he is indeed a Chicken Brigadier hiding under diplomatic immunity against Mahaveera Mathini, Vatsala Devi.
Not only the Chicken Brigadier, the US courts were looking for the Big Blue to serve summons when he visited the Viharaya in NY. His security thugs had to chase the summons bearing court officials away.
Now the summons on Big Blue are to be published in the World media.
Big Blue now joins Sudan’s Bashir (who cannot travel outside his country) and US’ Dubya (who cannot travel to Swiss for fear of arrest). Big Blue of course, has a Big Blue House in Medamulana.
Shows how GOSL is losing the battle despite winning the war.
If I were the Chicken Brigadier, instead of hiding under the bed from Vathsala devi, I will go looking for Saddam Hussein’s Baath Party rump all over the World to assist them to file action in US Courts against leaders of the Coalition of the Willing, George W, Tony Blair and John Howard for crimes against humanity in the Iraqi WMD War.
