  1. The judges of Apartheid South Africa, were biased against the “blacks” and others because of; the “superiority” of whites talked by parents at home. taught by teachers at schools from chiildhood and racism repeated by the media.

    So is the nurtured bias of the Sinhalese judges against Tamils in Sri Lanka(SL). The judges in topmost positions were the worst, also manipulated by Sinhala politicians to be unjust.

    The Indo-Sri lanka agreement (ISA) of 1986 stipulated that;

    a) The North and East provinces be combined as one
    b) The people of the East, if wished, should separate, by a referendum, within one year of the ISA accord.

    The referendum was never held but GOSL decided illegally, unilaterally and covertly to separate the East from the North, by appointing Sarath Silva, Chief Justice, to hear the trial and decide for the separation of N&E.

    During the trial the obvious irregularities were;

    a) The ISA was ignored
    b) Submission by TNA was disallowed without reasons.
    c) Ridiculous reason that Tamils had different cultures in the N&E was pronounced.

    The UNHRC should ask, for a copy of the record of the proceedings of this trial, to see as to how the Sinhalese judges are biased against Tamils.
