Bharatha’s sister to speak at UNHRC today
Six family members of slain SLFPer Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra will attend the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session in Geneva today while one family member is scheduled to address the session with regard to the killing of Mr. Premachandra and other alleged politically motivated killings in Sri Lanka.
The late Mr. Premachandra’s eldest sister Chithra Premachandra told the Daily Mirror that the UNHRC had invited the Premachandra family to make a speech at the Geneva sessions following strong lobbying by human rights groups in Canada.
Besides Ms. Chithra Premachnadra, the rest of the late Premachandra’s siblings are all residents in Canada. The six members of Mr. Premachandra’s family who will attend the UNHRC session includes his sister Swarna Gunaratne, her son Dilan Gunaratne, another sister Sunethra Abeysinghe, her daughter Shanika Abeysinghe, their brother Asela Premachandra, and Brother-in-law Vishwajith Wijeysinghe.
Their sister Swarna Gunaratne is expected to make a speech at the UNHRC session probably followed by another speech by Mr. Premachandra’s niece Shanika Abeysinghe who is a law student.
“It is not only my brother but there have been a lot of other political murders like this,” Ms. Chithra Premachandra said. Commenting on MP Duminda Silva who is alleged to have been responsible for the killing of Mr. Premachandra, she said law enforcement authorities should take immediate action against him.

Transparency is needed.
Truth is needed.
Law and order is needed.
Justice is needed.
Sad to say, there was injustice
Before independence and after independence,
No law and order,
And the state was the the culprit.
More and more lies,
Like the boy who cried wolf
Lies and Lies
UNHRC want to test
But unwilling to test
And therefore no result
That comes totally out of the blue. The address by the late premachandra’s sister is bound to have a significantly higher impact than the film clip showing slaughter of Prabakaran’s 12 yr old son.
Why is the Sinhala Buddhist turning against the ruling Sinhala Buddhist?.
The suspect in this case was quickly airlifted from Singapore and is kept in luxury surrounds at the nawaloka Hospital. He has also been given leave from Parliament for more than a year.
Why you drag Sinhala Buddhist gere. Ranil supposed to be a Sinhala Buddhist Ans so is MR. They do not see eye to eye. So, What? that is how democracy works!
Re: Blog 2 & 3.
Stabbing each others’ back and jealousy is the trade mark of being Sinhales (I am Sinhalese, Buddhist and I am talking with my own experience). It is the ingrained character of ‘Me’ being above all else including the own country and being enslaved by the imperialists. As long as my enemy is down, does not matter what the cost is!

Was it not a Sinhalese guy sold the names of the intelligence officer to the LTTE and almost all of them were killed by the LTTE? As long as my enemy is down, does not matter what the cost is!
LTTE Claimed to be the SOLE Representative of Tamils.
The Rajapaksas Claims to be the SOLE Representatives of the Sinhala.
Budu Bal Sena Claims to be the SOLE Representatives of Buddhists
UNHRC Claims both the LTTE and The Government are the SOLE violators of the Human rights in Sri Lanka.
The late Mr Premachandra was killed in a street battle; it was not a pre-meditated political assasination.
The wheels of justice have been turning in this case. The Attorney General and Government Analyst have been busy with their responsibilities.
The late Mr Premachandra’s family in Sri Lanka have publicly expressed appreciation of the Rajapaksa Government’s action in this case. Of particular note is late Mr Premachandra’s effusive and photogenic daughter, Hirunikha, who has been a in the forefront praising the Government actions.
The late Mr Premachandra’s family in Canada appear to be unhappy with response to the unfortunate incident. By going to the UNHRC, the Late Mr Premachandra’s family has provided strong Sinhala Buddhist support to LTT rump in their quest to have CHOGM shifted from Sri Lanka thus depriving the British Monarch of an oppoortunity to land in the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport.
SL has an open and transparent judicial system under the current Chief Justice. Corruption in the judiciary is a thing of the past with the impeachment of the former CJ.
In the words of the current CJ, any person having a grievance with the judicial system has to only write a postcard to the “Chief Justice, Colombo 12” and is assured of prompt relief. The late Mr Premachandra’s family in Canada should follow the CJ’s advice and not play into the hands of Harper and his LTT rump activists.
“any person having a grievance with the judicial system has to only write a postcard to the “Chief Justice, Colombo 12″ and is assured of prompt relief.”
What about all the lack of Law and Order when the Bodu BalA SENA EWAS RUNNING RAMPANT, Breaking the peace AND DESTROYING PLACES OF WORSHIP?
THESE ARE JUST SPECIFIC EXAMPLES.
Do you think UN HRC and others do not see these?
There is no smoke without fire.
Premachandra also was the street thug carrying guns just like Kudu Duminda. To me, there is no difference between the two thugs Premachandra and Duminda.
A few seconds of difference at that roudi gang fight at that time could have made Duminda dead and Premachandra brain damaged and Premachandra gone to Singapore for treatment and then protected in a luxury area of Nawaloka hospital and Kudu Duminda’s relatives attending UNHCR ! So what is the difference between the two?
I have absolutely no respect for either of those roudi thugs who deserve nothing from good mannered public. Relatives living in Canada or somewhere else in the world cannot clean the dirty gun carrying thuggery nature of Premachandra. Canadian relatives could have encouraged the thug Premachandra to not to involve in the thug culture instead. If they did that Premachandra could have been alive today, along with kudu Duminda.
Both are exposed as underworld thugs, the whole world knows it. Don’t shed crocodile tears you shameful relatives ! What are you doing at UNHCR? Do you think Premachandra carried guns to protect “Human Rights”?
Smelly Bull dung !
