News: False Promises
Posted Date: 11/01/2018 (Thursday)
Three years after the election victory of Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickremesinghe’s ‘unity government’, the failure of meaningful progress on key issues must be confronted head on if visions for accountability, justice and lasting peace are ever to be achieved. While the government has succeeded in opening up sufficient space to garner international praise, with political space in the South having certainly fared well under the present regime, it has abjectly failed to deliver on commitments made to the Tamil people. As the wave of protests which defined the ‘good-governance’ regime’s third year in power illustrate, there is rising

News: Bond-scam probe is turning democracy into ‘demo-crazy’…
Posted Date: 10/01/2018 (Wednesday)
One can examine the Bond-scam report and arrive at conclusions after such a close perusal in two diametrically opposed lights. 1. In the context of the current political environment, its apparent findings and President Maithripala Sirisena’s interpretations of the findings and his vicarious intentions of defaming some UNP members of Parliament, despite the fact that his very election as President was principally facilitated by the United National Party (UNP), would lead to him being branded a ‘traitor’. We need to note that the appointment of Arjuna Mahendran who is the central figure in this whole scheme of alleged corruption, as Governor of the Central Bank, albeit at the behest of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe, was President’s responsibility and his alone.

News: People’s turn to punish the liars and thieves!
Posted Date: 10/01/2018 (Wednesday)
As the cloud sets in on the completion of the third year of the Yahapalanaya Government, the wave of corruption that bestows this nation continues to flame. The advent of the Coalition Government led by President Sirisena and Premier Wickremesinghe was an endorsement by the people to prioritise anti-corruption and improve governance. However, the Bond Commission Report only justifies that corruption and fraud are an inherent gene in successive governments and it is only the characters that change.

News: Lots of talk but little progress in Sri Lanka over journalist murders
Posted Date: 10/01/2018 (Wednesday)
It was the police line-up from hell. Forget all those "Law and Order" scenes where a victim stands anonymously behind a one-way mirror. Sri Lankan journalist Namal Perera had to stand eyeball-to-eyeball with 42 army intelligence officers in April, each of whom, Perera explained to me while demonstrating his fiercest tough-guy glare, faced him with a cold stare and arms folded aggressively. Perera had to think back to that day nine years earlier, on June 30, 2008, when attackers on two motorcycles and in an unmarked white van chased him and his friend as they left the Sri Lanka Press Institute in Colombo, where he was deputy director at the time. He recalled how,
