Ronen Bergman is an Israel investigative journalist who launched a book on 23 rd January 2018.

News: Why Lanka’s Parliament has declined and decayed
Posted Date: 14/04/2018 (Saturday)
Let me start with a confession. The last two weeks have been consumed rereading Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire parts of which deal with the decline and decay of that most august of bodies, the Roman Senate. Those familiar with the first three volumes cannot miss their influence throughout this essay, but in a pint-sized column such as this it is infeasible to always insert quotation marks or add dutiful ibids. I have also taken tiny liberties with a few quotations. By ‘decline’, in my title, I mean institutional changes, such as anointing Octavian as Augustus, or in our case the executive presidency, which undermined parliament. The

News: Sinhala and Tamil New Year
Posted Date: 14/04/2018 (Saturday)
This is so apparent in a village setting. Kumari remembers distinctly seeing the yellow stalks of paddy harvested and piled in the kamatha; the paddy threshed by a team of buffaloes and the seed measured for division between landlord and cultivator. The measured paddy grain was stored in gunny sacks to be carried to Kumari’s maternal grandparents’ home and to the cultivator’s home. The andé type of paddy cultivation was followed: our fields cultivated by village farmers and the harvest shared between owner and cultivator; equally at the beginning, until in the mid 1950s the Paddy Lands Act was passed decreeing that the farmer gets 2/3rd of the harvested paddy.

News: Religionisation Of Politics: Amour Of The Authoritarian Personality
Posted Date: 14/04/2018 (Saturday)
We live in dark times, times of lost hope, times of wrecked promises. The common candidate has turned in to a protean political swindler. The autocrat knocks on the door. As the blunt and bright political satirist Art Buchwald put it these are not the best of times or the worst of times. These are the only times we’ve got. New Year festivals are measures of time. From our tribal days, we have relied on festivals and rituals usually linked to harvesting times as a device that offers a renewal of life. On this new year, our nation is focused not so much in a renewal in life but to make sense out of chaos that surrounds us in life.

News: SL earns over USD 161mn from UN peacekeeping
Posted Date: 14/04/2018 (Saturday)
The Sri Lanka Army has earned more than USD 161 million from UN peacekeeping missions since 2004, Army Commander Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake said on Thursday. He said this at the opening ceremony of the Directorate for Overseas Operations (DOO) at the Old Dutch Building in Colombo 3. “Since 2004, Sri Lanka has been earning a minimum of USD 2.5 million per annum from peacekeeping missions overseas. The troops deployed for such assignments benefit financially and through these undertakings, the country amasses foreign remittances that are utilised to train more and more soldiers. Since 1955, a number of 18,179 members attached to

News: President clinches deal with UNP to continue coalition
Posted Date: 14/04/2018 (Saturday)
President Maithripala Sirisena, leader of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) took the unprecedented step of urging ministers of his own party to boycott last Tuesday’s weekly Cabinet meeting – perhaps a first such move in a practising democracy. In doing so, he was cushioning a feared fallout from a widespread call by members of the Central Committee, the party’s policy making body, to quit the coalition or “the national unity Government.” They were to take a final decision at a second CC meeting on Wednesday but Sirisena, though he promised, did not summon one. He may not have wanted to be thrust with a decision to quit the coalition. He told the UNP ministers that most wanted

News: Two contentious human rights issues
Posted Date: 13/04/2018 (Friday)
There were two particularly contentious issues which the Commission of Inquiry was looking into. The first was the killing of five youngsters in Trincomalee, where it was clear that Security Forces had breached all norms. Though when I had first heard about the matter I had thought they had reasons to suspect the youngsters of working for the LTTE. about the matter. After I took over at the Secretariat and investigated further, it seemed to me that they had no excuse at all for the killings. I believe the Udalagama Commission, as it was called after its very honourable Chairman, has made this clear, though sadly the Rajapaksa Government failed to publish its findings. Even more culpably, the current Government has done nothing further
