News: Political justice is not enough to rebuild Sri Lanka
Posted Date: 29/09/2016 (Thursday)
For Sri Lanka, gender equity will be fundamental to a stable, peaceful and equitable future The civil war that raged for 26 years in Sri Lanka was always about more than political grievances. The politics were rooted in economic and social disenfranchisement of the Tamil minority by the Sinhala majority. A government policy adopted in the mid-1950s that declared Sinhala to be the country’s only official language may have been the spark that started the fire, but the impact over decades was a systemic marginalization in all sectors of politics and the economy that fueled Tamil grievances and a quest for a separate state.

News: Sri Lanka's Fleeing Tamils
Posted Date: 28/09/2016 (Wednesday)
In early June of this year, a boat with a failed engine carrying five children, 22 women, and 13 men was found in the water by fishermen off the coast of Aceh, Indonesia. One of the women on board was pregnant and one of the children was an infant. Those on board were all ethnic Tamils who had recently fled from their native Sri Lanka and were now seeking asylum. At the same time, human rights observers documented evidence of increased persecution and horrific torture against Tamils by Sri Lankan authorities. Initially taken in by the fishermen, the group was later returned to sea by Indonesian authorities who claimed that the asylum seekers’ boat had been repaired, that those on board were in good health, and that they were to continue on to their desired destination of Australia. Human rights organizations immediately called foul, especially since the United Nations High Commission for Refugees and local non-governmental organizations had been denied access to the asylum-seekers.

News: South-south cooperation at work: Inside Thailand's aid
Posted Date: 28/09/2016 (Wednesday)
Thailand has silently demonstrated over the last decade that countries don't need to be considered “developed” or rich to give back. Despite being classified as an upper-middle-income nation and an aid recipient, Thailand is also a donor. The rationale, aid officials from the country told Devex, is that “south-south cooperation” works.
News: Sri Lanka's China Enclave: Set To Boom Or Bust?
Posted Date: 27/09/2016 (Tuesday)
I travel to emerging markets around Asia and report on what I find. Hambantota isn’t just a place in Sri Lanka, it’s a symbol. What started out as a gargantuan project to transform an undeveloped swath of Sri Lankan jungle into the country’s number two city — an industrial and logistical epicenter in the heart of the Indian Ocean — turned into a metaphor for opaque government dealings, poor planning, the flippant use of public funds, and token rivalries between political factions.
News: Pakistan: Overhaul Abusive Police Force Lack of Accountability, Outdated Methods Contribute to Rights Violations
Posted Date: 27/09/2016 (Tuesday)
The Pakistani government should overhaul its police system that enables and even encourages serious human rights violations, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. Successive Pakistani governments have for decades failed to reform an under-resourced and under-equipped police force or hold abusive police to account. “Pakistan faces grave security challenges that can be best handled by a rights respecting, accountable police force,” said Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch. “Instead, law enforcement has been left to a police force filled with disgruntled, corrupt, and tired officers who commit abuses with impunity, making Pakistanis less safe, not more.”

News: SRI LANKA: Supreme Court Judgments on torture and the State’s failure to protect those in custody
Posted Date: 23/09/2016 (Friday)
One more judgement from the Supreme Court, on torture by the Sri Lankan police, was added to a long list of such judgements, when the Supreme Court decided in favour of a petition filed by W.N.L.K. Fernando of Naththandiya Police against officers attached to the Wennapuwa Police Station [S.C.F.R. Application No. 612/09]. The Supreme Court decided that three of the police officers have, in fact, violated the rights of the petitioner guaranteed under Article 11 of the Constitution by assaulting petitioner Fernando. The Court ordered the three police officers to pay the Petitioner Rupees 35,000 each, i.e. Rupees 105,000 in total, out of their own pockets. The Court rejected the version of the Respondent police officers that the injuries on the petitioner might have been caused in the course of the petitioner’s attempt to resist arrest.
