TGTE Urges UN Human Rights Council to Take Strong Action Against Sri Lanka Despite China's Pledge to Protect Sri Lanka

China’s pledge to protect Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council raises serious concern among the victims whether they can get justice through the Council

China’s pledge to protect Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council raises serious concern among the victims whether they can get justice through the Human Rights Council.”

— Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE)

NEW YORK, USA, October 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ —

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) condemns the pledge of Chinese diplomats during their meeting with the Sri Lankan government to defend Sri Lanka at “international fora including United Nations Human Rights Council” (https://www.tamilguardian.com/content/china-pledges-protect-sri-lanka-united-nations-human-rights-council).

China's pledge is not a surprising one, however. When the 99-year lease agreement was signed between the Government of Sri Lanka and the Chinese state-owned company with respect to Hambantota Port in 2017 we expected such cooperation to result.

It has been more than 11 years and, in spite of three Reports from the UN in which it was stated that there are credible allegations of war crimes and crimes against Humanity were committed during and after the war which ended in 2009, thus far no one has been convicted, let alone prosecuted for these atrocities either domestically or internationally.

While the previous “good governance” regime used Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1 which it co-sponsored as a sophisticated form of impunity, the current administration brazenly thumbs its nose at the international community and has explicitly stated it will not abide by the commitments made in Resolution 30/1. When the mandate of Resolution 30/1 expires in March 2021, the Human Rights Council (HRC) must pass a resolution referring Sri Lanka to the Security Council with a recommendation for referral to the International Criminal Court or for another strong international judicial mechanism.

We recognize that when the matter is referred to the Security Council, there is a possibility to frustrate the HRC’s referral by the exercise of veto power. If that be the case, so be it. The hope is that that scenario will be a catalyst to an accountability process in various civilized countries through changes in domestic laws, prosecutions through universal jurisdiction and unilateral sanctions. As Mr. Aaron Rhodes, the president of the Forum for Religious Freedom – Europe and the former Executive Director of the International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights worte in The Wall Street Journal on October 19, 2020, it is high time that “Democracies that defend liberty [to] recover their unilateral sovereignty – politically and philosophically – if they want to promote the universality of human rights and defend the growing number of victims denied them.”

The pledge of China to protect Sri Lanka at the Human Rights Council is reprehensible. Given the fact that China has been elected to the HRC last week, coupled with China’s oppression of the Uighurs, its clampdown in Hong Kong and its bellicose stance towards Taiwan, China’s pledge to protect Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council raises serious concern among the victims whether they can get justice through the Human Rights Council.

The TGTE believes that while we pursue justice at the Human Rights Council, we also have to embark on a course to bring the state of Sri Lanka before domestic forums of civilised countries for its crimes. The statutes of the International Criminal Court have been adopted internally in many countries through domestic legislation. Thus, individuals can be prosecuted for international crimes in those countries.

As the UN Office of the High Commissioner Investigation of Sri Lanka (OISL) report acknowledges, international crimes were committed by the Sri Lankan state itself, however. To place the state of Sri Lanka in domestic Tribunal in various countries the concept of sovereign immunity has remained an obstacle. Through domestic legislation this obstacle can be removed. If sovereign immunity is not a defence for commercial transactions, how can it be a defence for genocide? The recent “Walk for Justice” campaign in Canada, in which marchers carried a petition from Toronto to Ottawa requesting the Canadian Prime Minister’s support for the initiative to remove Sri Lanka’s sovereign immunity for international crimes, and the march’s coverage by the mainstream media regarding this endeavour gives us excitement and hope.

ABOUT THE TRANSNATIONAL GOVERNMENT OF TAMIL EELAM (TGTE):

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a democratically elected Government of over a million strong Tamils (from the island of Sri Lanka) living in several countries around the world.

TGTE was formed after the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Government in 2009.

TGTE thrice held internationally supervised elections among Tamils around the world to elect 132 Members of Parliament. It has two chambers of Parliament: The House of Representatives and the Senate and also a Cabinet.

TGTE is leading a campaign to realize the political aspirations of Tamils through peaceful, democratic, and diplomatic means and its Constitution mandates that it should realize its political objectives only through peaceful means. It’s based on the principles of nationhood, homeland and self-determination.

TGTE seeks that the international community hold the perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the Tamil people to account. TGTE calls for a referendum to decide the political future of Tamils.

The Prime Minister of TGTE is Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, a New York based lawyer.

BACKGROUND

Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka faced repeated mass killings in 1958, 1977, and 1983 and the mass killings in 2009 prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a Panel of Experts to report on the scale of the killings.

According to UN internal review report on Sri Lanka, over 70 thousand Tamils were killed / unaccounted for in six months in early 2009 and Tamil women were sexually assaulted and raped by the Sri Lankan Security forces.

A report by the International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) published details of Sri Lankan Military run "Rape Camps", where Tamil women are being held as sex slaves. There are over 90 thousand Tamil war widows.

Thousands of Tamils including babies disappeared and UN ranked Sri Lanka as having the second highest number of disappearances in the world.

According to this UN report, the killings and other abuses that took place amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. Independent experts believe that there are elements of these abuses that constitute an act of genocide.

Members of the Sri Lankan security forces are almost exclusively from the Sinhalese community and the victims are all from the Tamil community. A Buddhist Monk shot and killed a Sri Lankan Prime Minister 1959 for having talks with Tamils.

Tamils overwhelmingly voted in a Parliamentary election in 1977 to establish an independent and sovereign country called Tamil Eelam. This Parliamentary election was conducted by the Sri Lankan Government.

Ray Charles has one more concert in Africa

Ray Charles

Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir Live – This Is Your House CD

Time Capsule items

Legendary entertainer Ray Charles joins time capsule in Africa to commemorate 400 years of African American History

The President of Equatorial Guinea felt it was more fitting to have the ceremony on the mainland”

— H.E. Anatolio Ndong Mba, Equatorial Guinea Ambassador to United Nations

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Don Victor Mooney, President of H.R. 1242 Resilience Project and a resident of Flushing, Queens, ended his two-week visit at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea recently.

Mooney hand-delivered a time capsule to commemorate the 400 years of African American History to H.E. Mr. Simeón Oyono Esono Angue, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.

The time capsule will be buried in the new administrative capital called the City of Peace.

The City of Peace is located in the province of Djibloho on the mainland. It's in the heart of the Equatorial forest, and home to the Afro American University of Central Africa.

Earlier plans called for the time capsule burial in Malabo, which is one of the islands for Equatorial Guinea.

The time capsule included a soundtrack of the legendary soul musician Ray Charles, who was portrayed by Jamie Foxx in the Oscar-winning biopic called Ray. The score was composed by Breyon Prescott and Craig Armstrong.

The album won a Grammy Award and was nominated by The British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA Award) for Best Film Music. The CD was purchased with a gift card donated by Barnes and Noble for Don Victor Mooney's first transatlantic rowing attempt.

For his performance in Ray, Foxx won the Academy Award for Best Actor.

Another CD donated directly by The Brooklyn Tabernacle Church for the same row, called 'This Is Your House' by Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir joined the time capsule.

Other items included artifacts, photos, letters, books, rocks, jewelry, coins, music, citations, journals, proclamations, sugar, tobacco, and cotton.

H.R. 1242 Resilience Project year-long commemoration was dubbed, 400 Years: Resilience, Faith, Healing, and Partnership.

On his fourth try, Mooney became the first African American to row from Africa to New York's Brooklyn Bridge. His boat christened the Spirit of Malabo was sponsored by the government of Equatorial Guinea, with the personal support of H.E. Obiang Ngema Mbasogo, Head of State.

Mooney's mission was to encourage voluntary HIV testing, in memory of his brother that died from AIDS.

Press Release: Disney Films Blur Reality of Harm to Animals

A new book shows how animal harm has been depicted, and sometimes romanticized, in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ films.

Filmmakers have a responsibility to see that they don’t perpetuate cruelty to animals.”

— The Revd Professor Andrew Linzey, Director of the OCAE

OXFORD, UK, October 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new book shows how animal harm has been depicted, and sometimes romanticized, in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ films.

The Disneyfication of Animals written by Dr Rebecca Rose Stanton is being published by Palgrave Macmillan, as part of their innovative Animal Ethics series.

Each chapter explores a different form of animal harm, from farming, hunting and fishing, to clothing, work, and entertainment.

The book argues that Disney films present certain species (such as dogs and deer) as pro-social, which makes it socially-unacceptable to harm them. The same films depict other species (such as rats and eagles) as anti-social, which makes it socially-acceptable to harm them.

The book also questions why animal farms in Disney films, such as The Fox and The Hound and Home on the Range, are almost-always free-range, comfortable, and spacious places for animals to live in, even though this contrasts greatly with animal farming in reality.

Dr Rebecca Rose Stanton, an Associate Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics (OCAE), said: “Many people’s first, and sometimes only, experiences with certain species of animals originate from fictional depictions in cultural representations, such as those in Disney films.”

“This is worthy of study because there is strong evidence that fictional cultural representations can affect how people view and treat specific species of animals in reality.”

She continued: “With the rising interest in animal welfare, I hope that there will be much more research into the effect that cultural representations can have upon viewers, and how this can influence animals in reality.”

Director of the OCAE the Revd Professor Andrew Linzey commented “This is just the book we need to understand how positive, and especially negative, cultural attitudes to animals are created and perpetuated by the screen media in particular. Filmmakers have a responsibility to see that they don’t perpetuate cruelty to animals.”

For editors

• "The Disneyfication of Animals" can be ordered from Palgrave Macmillan.

• The book is published as part of the Palgrave Macmillan Animal Ethics book series in which more thirty volumes have already been published.

• The Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics is an independent centre pioneering ethical perspectives on animals through academic research, teaching, and
publication. It comprises more than one hundred academic fellows drawn from the sciences and the humanities. Professor Andrew Linzey is co-editor of "Other Nations: Animals in Modern Literature" published by Baylor University Press.

HENDERSONVILLE, TN, UNITED STATES, October 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Law Offices of Timothy L. Miles, who has been leading the fight to protect shareholder rights for over 19 years is investigating whether the officers and directors of Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NasdaqGS: SMCI) breached their fiduciary duty to shareholders. Super Micro develops and manufactures high-performance server and storage solutions.

If you suffered a loss due to Super Micro Computer, Inc.'s misconduct, click here.

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI) Engaged in Improper Revenue Recognition Scheme

Super Micro had a precarious few years in which it missed SEC financial disclosure deadlines due to accounting irregularities and was subject to an investigation by the SEC for its accounting practices. The Company's deteriorating operating performance led to a corresponding decline in its stock price. To combat this, certain Super Micro officers and directors engaged in a scheme to improperly recognize revenue when shipping unfinished product or when shipping to the Company's warehouses. At the same time, the officers and directors falsely reassured investors regarding the accuracy of the Company's financial reporting.

Then, in October 2017, Super Micro announced that it would be unable to timely file its fiscal year 2017 Form 10-K. Super Micro failed to file its required SEC filings for the next twenty months, resulting in the Company's delisting from the Nasdaq and the termination of three members of its senior management. Finally, on May 17, 2019, Super Micro issued a restatement for a five-year period (2013-2017) admitting that the Company and its officers and managers were aware of, engaged in, and concealed sales and accounting misconduct motivated by an aggressive focus on increasing quarterly financial results. As a result, Super Micro's earnings per share and revenues were artificially inflated by 32% and $40 million, respectively, and the Company incurred $109 million in investigatory costs. The Company is the subject of a federal securities class action and a cease-and-desist order issued by the SEC, which required Super Micro to pay $17.5 million due to its misconduct.

SMITHFIELD, VA, USA, October 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ecco, a Spinoni Italiano, was best known as the “naughty dog with the big heart” after he reached social media fame from his not-so-stellar but laughable antics.

What started as a simple Facebook page turned into a journey that can only be described as mind boggling.

“When I posted pictures of Ecco, more times than not, he was in some kind of trouble”, recalls his owner, Amy Havens. “Instantly, he became a global internet sensation. Ecco’s personality was so human that I began to write through his eyes. I would post inspirational Italian lessons daily from Ecco’s perspective and a poem weekly coined Sunday Prayers, which morphed into a new page dedicated to prayer requests due to the demand. I had to get him his own P.O. Box because he was receiving fan mail!

‘I realized that many children were watching Ecco’s naughty behavior so I decided to turn his negatives into positives. It’s impossible to be well behaved all of the time. However, the lessons you learn when you make mistakes are what really matters.

‘Ecco was known for stealing and destroying underwear, so I created the international “Underwear Everywhere Drive.” People would send socks and packages of new underwear from all over the world. Ecco and I would then travel down to the Union Mission in Norfolk, VA, and make our annual donation on behalf of his “pack”.

‘As Ecco’s popularity grew, unexpected things began to happen. Children wrote letters to Ecco. One in particular made an impact that will stick with me for the rest of my life. A little boy disclosed how he was being bullied and contemplating suicide. This child confided in a dog, not a human. This would not be the first child who messaged Ecco in despair and at that moment, I knew our true purpose.

‘This was the catalyst that inspired the birth of Nawty Dawg Big Heart, a non- profit organization to help others in need. Soon thereafter, Ecco became the larger-than-life Spokes Dog, barking our mission, “If you care…and share…life can take you anywhere.”

‘Prayer requests and cries for help flooded in as a result. We raised money for vet bills, transports and pretty much anything you could think of having to do with animals. We organized 911 “Bark Outs” to save animals from the euthanasia lists. Ecco’s social media pack was strong and philanthropic. Thousands of dollars were raised to help animals in need.

‘I don’t think we would have received a quarter of the response had it not been for Ecco. People really felt like they were talking to a dog, not a human. It was the most bizarre dynamic that I have ever encountered.

Irene Binggeli, now retired from Palisade Elementary School in Colorado, recounts the impact that Ecco had on her students. "Sharing is Caring!" “This could be heard in the halls of Taylor Elementary School. It was also the title of a lesson I taught students in the library with the help of Ecco. He taught kids about the importance of looking past their own life and to help others wherever possible. Ecco inspired our students to do good deeds in their community and to be more compassionate around their peers. These lessons completely changed the way the students felt about their families, friends, town and indeed the world. Just a month ago a former student, now a high school senior, shared with me that he still has the thank you note that Ecco wrote to him after a fundraiser we did for our local animal shelter. “Oh, it's just a dog!” Hundreds of kids and young adults in Colorado would disagree with that statement.”

Ecco brought joy to children and their families at Ronald McDonald House and to little ones during the Christmas season when he donned his Santa Paws outfit and visited pre-school classes. There were so many appearance requests that a stuffed prototype was created. “Eccolinis” were sold all over the world with a portion of each sale donated to a random charity.

“Eccolinis were spotted on every continent excluding Antarctica”, Havens stated. “It was surreal. Those stuffed pups helped children through surgeries, made it into delivery rooms, and even found love during biker week in Sturgis!”

Celebrities started noticing the impact that Ecco’s messages had on children and it wasn’t long before Metropolitan Opera Diva Janet Hopkins contacted Amy to arrange a performance together at the famed Westminster Dog Show in New York.

“The one thing that was more important to us than anything else was education”, said Amy. A long-time advocate for animal rights, Janet teamed up with Ecco to raise awareness about animal rescue. Janet and Ecco met in the lobby of the Hotel Pennsylvania, where Miss Hopkins serenaded Ecco with a favorite personalized Italian aria, “O Mio Babbino Cane”.

Janet and Amy went on to co-write a children’s libretto named, “Ecco Goes to the Opera”, complete with an interactive coloring book, in hopes of bringing more children into the arts through animals and music. When Janet heard of Ecco’s passing, she replied with this statement, “I will forever remember my sweet Ecco. Our duets will echo across the rainbow bridge till we meet again. You were deeply loved.”

Prior to retirement, Ecco was the “Canine Travel Correspondent” for the exclusive Everyday Opera Magazine and the celebrity magazine, Concierge Q. “That crazy dog had restaurants completely shut down to throw charity wine tastings for him and his fans. It was surreal.”, stated Havens. “Restaurants craved the opportunity to invite a famous philanthropist dog in to review their businesses!”

Throughout his career, Ecco was an accomplished show dog, an avid bird dog, a magazine cover dog and the subject of many articles, books and documentaries. He lived up to the meaning of his name, Ecco D’Oro, “Here is gold”.

“Ecco was a ‘once in a lifetime’ dog but most of all, he was our beloved family member. Fly high our naughty boy with the biggest heart. You made a difference."
