News: Memories Of Late K.G Amaradasa – An Ardent Tamil Literary Lover & Advocate For National Unity
Posted Date: 13/05/2018 (Sunday)
“Some might say that if a Sinhala man marries a Tamil woman or a Tamil man marries a Sinhala woman, then national unity will be born. I don’t think so. If people of different ethnic origin get married, only the children would be born as a natural consequence” quipped Ven. M Ratnavansa Thero – a Buddhist monk much loved and respected by Tamil writers and community members alike. Late K.G. Amaradasa is someone of similar calibre who also held the strong belief that national unity is not a one-way street. He is a remarkable man who learned and excelled in the Tamil literature and who pioneered the way in introducing the great Tamil national poet Mahakavi Barathiyar to the Sinhala people.

News: The OMP and the Aspirations of Families of the Missing and Disappeared
Posted Date: 12/05/2018 (Saturday)
The first permanent official body created to search and trace missing persons in Sri Lanka is the Office on Missing Persons (OMP) established under Act No. 14 of 2016. This was done to comply with a recommendation in the 2015 UNHRC Resolution which was co-sponsored by the Government of Sri Lanka. However the office was set up about two years after the Act was passed. It started functioning only in May 2018 with members visiting Mannar to meet the victims of disappearances in that District. Following the conclusion of the war in May 2009, there was a clamour by the families of

News: Aadhaar for Sri Lanka? Women’s labour and the demand for social welfare
Posted Date: 11/05/2018 (Friday)
International Labour Day on 1 May was honoured in Sri Lanka by several major trade unions and other Left organisations. This was despite the Government’s attempts to ‘shift’ May Day to 7 May, to prevent it from ‘overlapping’ with Vesak Poya. The decision to shift a day that honours labour rights in order to make space for a religious holiday – particularly one which is observed by the majority community – is not a neutral one. Cat’s Eye felt this was a good moment to reflect on the path we have taken in Sri Lanka:

News: China's foreign policy principles under stress
Posted Date: 10/05/2018 (Thursday)
AS China's power and economic strength have grown, its practices in the outside world have come to appear increasingly out of synchrony with its declared bases for international relations. In negotiations with India in 1954, China proposed that relations between the two states should be founded on certain fundamental principles. The proposed guidelines were embodied in a treaty between the two states and were subsequently advanced as an essential element in China's relations with other countries. They were known as the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence:

News: Crucial reconciliation steps in North
Posted Date: 09/05/2018 (Wednesday)
The Government which has expedited resettling Internally-Displaced People in Jaffna, will not compromise on national security by releasing the Army-held lands back to the rightful owners, the Security Forces Commander Jaffna, Maj. Gen. Dharshana Hettiarachchi said. He said that the Army was releasing lands not to meet demands of any political party but to reduce the number of IDPs languishing in centres for decades. “We can’t hold their lands forever. Eight years after ending the war, we want to handover some lands, which are not required for security purposes, back to the owners,” he said.

News: TNA May Launch Non-Violent Protest Campaign Against Govt Soon
Posted Date: 09/05/2018 (Wednesday)
D.B.S.Jeyaraj The Coalition Government of President Maithripala Sirisena and Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe may soon be facing a political challenge from an unexpected quarter namely the Tamil National Alliance(TNA). The TNA regarded as the premier political configuration of the Sri Lankan Tamil people is becoming increasingly frustrated at what it perceives as the slow pace and tardy progress of the Constitution making process. Therefore the TNA is planning to launch a non – violent protest campaign against the UNP- SLFP coalition Govt if it continues to procrastinate and dilly-dally on this issue. If and when matters do reach a point where a political confrontation becomes inevitable, the TNA proposes to embark upon a huge non – violent protest campaign to pressurise the Govt to expedite the making of a new Constitution.

News: SL’s external sector is under severe stress, contrary to Central Bank’s favourable comments
Posted Date: 09/05/2018 (Wednesday)
Sri Lanka is facing harsh external financing vulnerabilities, in contrast to the Central Bank’s recent claims that the country’s gross official foreign reserves have risen to the historically highest level of $ 9.9 billion reflecting improved economic prospects. According to a press release issued by the Central Bank last week, oversubscription of the International Sovereign Bond (ISB) amounting to $ 2.5 billion (largest ever), which was offered in April, signals foreign investors’ confidence in Sri Lanka’s economic performance and potential. The Central Bank goes on to say that it has received favourable response from the international community for a proposed term loan of $ 1 billion which is to be utilised by the Government to repay more expensive existing debt.

News: Will President Sirisena heed Naseby’s advise?
Posted Date: 05/05/2018 (Saturday)
In October 2017, Naseby, after appealing to the British Information Commissioner, obtain 39 pages of highly redacted confidential dispatches from the British High Commission in Colombo during the last stages of the Vanni campaign. During a debate in the House of Lords, he urged the UK government to revisit the UNHRC Resolution 30/1. Despite redactions, dispatches estimated 7,000 to 8,000 civilian deaths during the closing phase of the conflict with around a quarter of them being LTTE cadre in civilian clothing. One such document contained, "certainly there was no policy to kill civilians by Sri Lankan army."
