News: Vantharumoolai Refugee Camp Disappearances: 20 years of waiting
Posted Date: 03/09/2015 (Thursday)
Many may not know that, when 5th September 2015 dawns, it will be 25 years of waiting for 158 families, who ‘lost’ a member or two on that day of 5th September 1990 from the VANTHARUMOOLAI REFUGEE CAMP at EASTERN UNIVERSITY. They did not go missing as usual, where no one knew where they went. In this case these 158 were ‘handed over’/ ‘taken over’ by the Sri Lankan Military in front of a population of nearly 40,000 people. They were forced into buses and were driven away in the direction of Valaichenai. This was the last time anyone saw any of them, to date.

News: Experience of Dr Nagalingam Ethirveerasingam from North of Sri Lanka
Posted Date: 03/09/2015 (Thursday)
I just returned from the North after 8 months. The miitarization of the North is pervasive. The Navy occupies the Islands' coastal areas appropriating many water front areas and controlling the sea. Poonakary is filled with army and Navy. From Poonakary to Mannar road, which I have traveled back and fourth five times, every three or four miles are fortified entrance to the inside in to the forest and in some places to the coast. The A9 and the side roads to east and west and the Jaffna coastal areas and Mannar coastal areas are filled with all three armed forces.

News: The inevitability of the banana republic
Posted Date: 01/09/2015 (Tuesday)
Sri Lanka has been a ‘banana republic,’ for quite some time, and clearly so throughout the oligarchy of the Rajapaksas. Formally, a banana republic is “a small country that is economically dependent on a single export commodity, such as bananas, and is typically governed by a dictator or the armed forces.”). But in our case, the fate of the citizenry is far worse than in most other banana republics. In Sri Lanka, all wisdom, action, dreams, hallucinations and the making of unmitigated profit came from the first family and then from its acolytes. They were essentially the centre of our universe as well as the structure that kept this universe in place in a very specific way

Posted Date: 30/08/2015 (Sunday)
Assistant Secretary Nisha Biswal had apparently ticked him (CM) off for trying to be a hero to the disgruntle splinter and ineffective groups in the Diaspora and to the hard-line leftovers in his own Province. Hardly having delivered anything tangible to the people of North, in one meeting in the US, his foreign Diary Secretary was politely asked to shut up to let the CM speak. Diary Secretary was in for even worse treatment at the most important meeting of all, in New York, where he was refused entry to a meeting which resulted in a tantrum being thrown by him in front of those senior UN hosts. They said nothing doing, which the CM had to accept.

News: Opposing the Rule of Law
Posted Date: 28/08/2015 (Friday)
How Myanmar’s Courts make law and order written by Nick Cheesman has been release today. The rule of law is a political ideal today endorsed and promoted worldwide. Or is it? In a major contribution to the field, Nick Cheesman argues that Myanmar is a country in which the rule of law is 'lexically present but semantically absent'. Charting ideas and practices from British colonial rule through military dictatorship to the present day, Cheesman calls upon political and legal theory to explain how and why institutions animated bya concern for law and order oppose the rule of law. Empirically grounded in both Burmese and English sources, including criminal trial records and wide ranging official documents, Opposing the Rule of Law offer the first significant study of courts in contemporary Myanmar sheds new light on the politics of courts during dark times and sharply illuminates the tension between the demand for law and the imperatives of order.
