The Human Rights Council is mooting a special office on Sri Lanka. Officially it’s to be called ‘Evidence Preservation Mechanism on Sri Lanka.’ Well, we know how much value the UNHRC places on evidence, considering that it’s moves on Sri Lanka are a) based on poppycock dreamed up by Darusman and Co courtesy fantasy-dinners offered by unreliable sources with multiple axes to grind and b) deliberately shut out real time, from-the-ground dispatches and missives from the ICRC and the British High Commission.

So it’s not about evidence preservation. To preserve one must have it in the first place. Poppycock might pass off for evidence in kangaroo courts but that’s about it. In other words, the UNHRC is operating as a kangaroo court.

No. It’s about vexatious allegations. Britain knows all about that sort of thing, eh High Commissioner Hulton? It’s vexatious persecution. Unadulterated.

That’s not all though. Such ‘mechnisms’ need bucks. A staff is needed. Yes, people can be given jobs! People like Yasmin Sooka? People like Navi Pillay? Or Darusman himself? Maybe add some Sri Lankan flavor with Nimalka Fernando? Then of course there are the beasts without a cause LTTE operatives. They could be hired too.

All good. All good.
