News: Diaspora Tamils urge British government to shame and sack “slit throat” Sri Lanka diplomat
Posted Date: 10/02/2018 (Saturday)
Angered by a public death threat against Tamil demonstrators in London, Eelamist diaspora groups in a rare display of solidarity have urged the British government to strip Sri Lanka’s military attaché in the United Kingdom of his diplomatic status and declare him a “Persona non Grata”. Leading Tamil diaspora organisations spurred into action by Minister Councillor (Defence) Aandige Priyanka Indunil Fernando gesturing thrice to slit the throats of demonstrators in London who opposed the Sri Lanka government celebrating 70 years of independence while Tamils in the island were persecuted, have petitioned the British government on the 9th of February. In the detailed despatch to Home Secretary Amber Rudd and Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs Boris Johnson the organisations have requested the British government to “declare the Sri Lankan Military Attaché Brigadier Priyanka Fernando a Persona non Grata for committing a serious offence under British law, abusing diplomatic immunity in the UK and committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sri Lanka and therefore, to curtail his leave to remain in the UK.”

News: Udayanga debacle in Dubai: Fresh team flies to Lyon to get ‘Red Notice’
Posted Date: 09/02/2018 (Friday)
France to issue a “Red Notice” to enable the arrest of Sri Lanka’s former Ambassador to Russia, Udayanga Weeratunga, who is now in Dubai. A prime suspect in the alleged mass fraud involving the procurement of MiG 27 fighter jets from Ukraine in 2006, he was detained by Interpol officials at the Dubai International Airport. He was released after a counsel hired by him argued that the arrest had been wrong since it was made on the basis of an Interpol “Blue Notice,” which was only an advisory.

News: The quest for true freedom
Posted Date: 04/02/2018 (Sunday)
Freedom, liberty and independence. Three words that seemingly have the same meaning, but differ in their interpretation. Sri Lanka gained independence from the British rulers on February 4, 1948, exactly 70 years ago. This was a turning point for freedom in the history of our nation. Independence is not just a facility that we gain from someone. It is also a state of mind. We must really feel free and independent as a nation to reap the full benefits of the struggle for independence that succeeded in 1948. Sri Lanka has gone through a tumultuous 70 years, mainly as a result of the shortsighted and ethnic centred policies of our politicians, most of

News: Sri Lanka’s Opportunity to Leverage High-end Tourism with Reclaimed Beaches
Posted Date: 04/02/2018 (Sunday)
The recent proposal of the Megapolis Ministry to reclaim the sea abutting the Galle Face Green and to extend it Southwards to Dehiwela is a commendable idea. In addition, the Expressway coming into the City Center with links to other Expressways going North and South, it will be a realistic move. At the City end, the Expressway linking the Port, Port City, and the underground access to the city hotels and the Marine Drive going South is appropriate as there would be a North - South link and would ease traffic circulation. The reclamation of the sea takes time. In Rio De Janeiro in Brazil, reclamation of the

News: Japanese unaware of the ‘real’ Sri Lanka, visiting business leader says
Posted Date: 04/02/2018 (Sunday)
Akio Mimura was 11 when Sri Lanka’s former President J.R. Jayewardena stood up for Japan at the San Francisco international peace conference in 1951. World War II had been over for six years and the allied powers had been deliberating how vanquished Japan would be punished. They wanted the country on its knees, paying reparations. Mr.Jayewardena, a minister in Mr.D.S. Senanayake’s government, was the lone voice among the 51 nations gathered that day backing the vanquished. Quoting Buddha, “hatred cease not by hatred but by love”the statesman called for a free and independent Japan and that it should not pay a heavy price that would harm its economy.

News: Sri Lanka Celebrating Independence In Chains Of Its Own Making
Posted Date: 04/02/2018 (Sunday)
While Sri Lanka "celebrates" 70 years of independence from British colonial rule this month, its sovereignty is being threatened as never before since gaining independence in 1948 – tempting one to remark that Sri Lanka is celebrating 'independence in chains'. The strategically placed Indian ocean island is an important lynchpin in China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) which western powers – especially the United States and Britain – are keen to sabotage as its success would end their hegemony in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond.
