News: President rejects proposal to pay compensation to former LTTE cadres and their families
Posted Date: 24/06/2018 (Sunday)
Sirisena refuses to even discuss Swaminathan’s memorandum; compensation issues to be dealt with by designated body --UNP’s damage-control move misfires as Mujibur Rahman MP plays counsel President Maithripala Sirisena on Tuesday rejected outright a proposal by a United National Party (UNP) Cabinet Minister to pay “compensation” to Tiger guerrilla “ex combatants” and their “next of kin.” “I am not going to allow this to be even discussed,” he told last Tuesday’s weekly ministerial meeting. He was alluding to the Cabinet Memorandum forwarded by Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs Minister Deva Manoharan Swaminathan, who recommended the move.

News: India expresses concern over huge Chinese housing project in NE Questions about competence of the company and large presence of Chinese workers
Posted Date: 24/06/2018 (Sunday)
India has raised concern at the highest levels of the Sri Lankan Government about the manner in which a contract to build 40,000 houses in the North and East was recently awarded without tender to a Chinese company that has no history of building houses in the country. The Resettlement Ministry last month secured Cabinet approval for China Railway Beijing Engineering Group Co Ltd and its country representative Yapka Construction (Pvt) Ltd to construct 40,000 prefabricated concrete houses for the war-affected in the North and East. They are the same parties selected by the Disaster Management Ministry to build 10,000 houses for landslide victims.

News: Media Release on a list of names published online by the ITJP (International Truth and Justice Project)
Posted Date: 23/06/2018 (Saturday)
The attention of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been drawn to a list of names published online by the ITJP (International Truth and Justice Project). According to the ITJP, this list, which presently consists of 351 names and can be accessed at http://www.disappearance.itjpsl.com/#lang=english is of persons who are alleged to have disappeared while in the custody of the Sri Lankan Armed Forces in May 2009. The Office on Missing Persons (OMP) which has been established by an Act of Parliament (Act No. 14 of 2016 as amended by Act No. 09 of 2017)[1] is the permanent and independent entity in Sri Lanka that is vested with the tasks of, inter alia, searching and tracing of missing persons and clarifying the circumstances in which such persons went missing, and their fate; making recommendations to the relevant authorities towards reducing the incidents of missing

News: Sri Lanka extends financial access to villagers
Posted Date: 23/06/2018 (Saturday)
Sri Lanka has made a commitment to expand financial access to the poorest of the poor people living in remote rural areas through a financial inclusion scheme, official sources divulged. Sri Lanka is a land of 14,000 villages and a majority of the country’s population, nearly 80 per cent, lives in villages. Financial needs of these villages are being served by an estimated 14,000 financial institutions in the country, which directly or indirectly provide micro credit facilities. A majority of these financial institutions are either financial NGOs, not-for-profits or organisations that follow local cooperative societies.

News: The culprits visited Kilinochchi and left with money – MR
Posted Date: 23/06/2018 (Saturday)
Commenting on the Government issuing an extraordinary Gazette Notification, placing 14 individuals, suspected of links with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, and now living abroad, on a list of designated persons, banned from entry to Sri Lanka, Parliamentarian Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the move comes in the wake of the 14 arriving in the island, travelling to Kilinochchi, getting what they wanted done and leaving with monies. The former President noted that in light of this, the issuing of the gazette was laughable as it was akin to closing the stable door once the horse has bolted. “At a time when the majority of the countries in the world are acting against terrorism, why is the Government of Sri Lanka following a lax policy and according to whose agenda?” He queried.

News: ARMY DENIES CANARD ON ALLEGED
Posted Date: 23/06/2018 (Saturday)
The Sri Lanka Army denied reports that it was withdrawing several formations from the North and the East. Issuing a media release, the Army said this is a canard reportedly made by disgruntled political elements desperately attempting to mislead the public. “The Sri Lanka Army categorically denies having taken any such decision, nor has it contemplated implementing a move of that nature at all as alleged by those elements who try to showcase that ‘they’ are more patriotic than members of the armed forces in the country,” the release said.

News: Refugees and widows - Let conscience be our guide
Posted Date: 23/06/2018 (Saturday)
This week, the international community marks two important events -- World Refugee Day on June 20 and World Widows’ Day today. Both refugees and widows have been oppressed or marginalised to a large extent and we need to deeply reflect on the issues. This reflection is essential though the United States President Donald Trump -- who says he wants to make America great again -- has instead created an America alone crisis by his hard or cruel policy against refugees, the latest being the order to separate refugee children from their families. But the chaotic and dangerously-unpredictable US leader revoked his own order under international and internal pressure even from his wife Melania and daughter Ivanka.

News: Will not let terrorism rise again: Dy. Minister
Posted Date: 23/06/2018 (Saturday)
In reference to the incident, where several military type equipment and uniform belonging to the LTTE were detected in a three-wheeler at the Peraru Junction in Oddusuddan on Thursday, Deputy Minister of Law and Order Nalin Bandara said yesterday the Government would not allow terrorism to raise its head again. Addressing a news briefing, he said the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) officers were conducting a special investigation into the incident. “Since Sri Lanka is a country, which was embroiled in a civil war for nearly 30 years, it is not surprising that buried weapons are being found in areas where there was a war at one time,” Minister said.

News: ‘Hitler’ comparison hurts Sri Lanka presidential hopeful
Posted Date: 23/06/2018 (Saturday)
A senior Buddhist monk counselling former defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to emulate Hitler and establish a military dictatorship may have seriously hurt his bid for the presidency, according to close associates. A chief priest of the Asgiriya chapter, Vendaruwe Upali, blessed Rajapaksa on his 69th birthday Wednesday by urging him to follow the German dictator Hitler and take over the country even if it means establishing military rule. The monk, delivering a sermon at the private home of Rajapaksa, prayed that the youngest among the Rajapaksa siblings should be the next leader of Sri Lanka as the country needed a “Sinhala Buddhist leader.”

News: Golden opportunity to find new co-sponsor: HR activist
Posted Date: 23/06/2018 (Saturday)
Sri Lanka has the golden opportunity of finding a new co-sponsor and going in for an alternative and interim UN resolution as the US has pulled out from the UNHRC, said Dr. Prathiba Mahanamahewa, former Commissioner of Human Rights Commission. Commenting on the latest development, Dr. Mahanamahewa said the US-Sri Lanka sponsored 2015 resolution in a nutshell says that Sri Lankan forces committed war crimes and therefore, a hybrid court should be established to investigate charges. “However, the US says the UNHRC is of no use and like a cesspool. The US also accused the council of being biased and not protecting human rights of a country. We can embark on this
