News: Govt making Lanka a colony once again
Posted Date: 09/01/2017 (Monday)
The government was turning the country into being a colony of foreign powers by offering vast areas of land to China, India and the USA, the Socialist Alliance charged yesterday. Addressing the media at Dr N.M. Perera Centre in Borella, Lanka Sama Samaja Party leader Prof. Tissa Vitharana said the government was planning to lease 15,000 acres of lands in Hambantota area to China, falsely claiming that it was being done in accordance with a plan prepared by the previous administration.

News: PMK seeks global probe into war crimes in Sri Lanka
Posted Date: 09/01/2017 (Monday)
Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK ) founder Dr. S. Ramadoss criticised the Sri Lankan government’s refusal to allow international investigation into alleged war crimes in the final stages of the civil war in Sri Lanka in 2009 and demanded for a resolution calling for an international investigation at the United Nations. In a statement, he said that India should push for an investigation by an international war crimes tribunal or an equivalent body. “With the Sri Lankan government refusing to agree to an international war crimes investigation, there will be no justice to Tamils who suffered under the Sri Lankan government armed forces. All those who committed war crimes on innocent Tamils will go scot-free. The Indian government has a responsibility to stop this from happening,” said Dr. Ramadoss.

Posted Date: 06/01/2017 (Friday)
Minister Rajitha Senaratne yesterday pooh-poohed an allegation that he was involved in creating the Bodu Bala Sena made by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa last week, counter-alleging that it was his brother former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa who was the true patron of the extremist Sinhalese movement accused of targeting religious and ethnic minorities in the country. Senaratne told reporters at the Cabinet press briefing yesterday that the former President’s claim was the “joke of the 21st Century.”

News: Cabinet Spokesman’s remarks that UN envoy for human rights endorsed Govt. ‘no foreign judges’ stand denied by OHCHR

The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) yesterday insisted that High Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein’s position on a hybrid court to prosecute alleged war crimes during Sri Lanka’s 26-year civil war remained unchanged. The OHCHR took to Twitter yesterday to clarify what it called Zeid’s “unchanged” position, after Cabinet Spokesman Minister Rajitha Senaratne controversially proclaimed to reporters on Wednesday (4), that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights had endorsed the Government’s position that foreign judges would not sit on a proposed war crimes tribunal.

News: Could Sri Lanka have become another Singapore if we had a Lee Kwan Yew?
Posted Date: 06/01/2017 (Friday)
Although I have lived and worked in Singapore since the riots of 1983, I am a constant visitor to Sri Lanka which I consider my true home and where my closest friends are. I find these visits exhilarating for a number of reasons, one of which is the lively discussions that take place on politics at every party and meeting of friends. In Singapore very few discuss politics because it is so boring (like its newspapers!) as politics is so dull. Governments are elected every 5 years (the same party for 50 years!) and they make promises which they invariably fulfill or exceed – nothing to talk about. But Sri Lanka is so different – gossip on who is going to cross over, new parties being formed, Ministers undermining their leaders, the latest corruption scandal, announcement of the latest mega projects and the enormous FDI expected, but which always fail to materialize – really interesting stuff! One reason is that, with a few notable exceptions, politicians in Sri Lanka are demagogues or even thugs. In Singapore all parties select MPs based on their education and professional experience.

News: TREAT EX-LTTE CADRES AS NORMAL CITIZENS
Posted Date: 06/01/2017 (Friday)
Due to unforeseeable circumstances, this year started off with a series of protests around the country. As the first of January dawned, paving the path to a brand new year, several groups were getting ready to protest against the government. Thus, three days into the New Year, the country faced another protest, even before the previous one ended. A group of rehabilitated LTTE cadres thus engaged in a protest opposite the Civil Defence Camp in Iranamadu, Kilinochchi recently. The protestors demanded that the government quickened the process of providing job opportunities at the Civil Defence Department or any other government institution.

News: SRI LANKA: Beginning of a New Peoples’ Movement Targeting Large-Scale Membership
Posted Date: 05/01/2017 (Thursday)
I have had the privilege of witnessing the birth of an initiative to create a people\'s movement not affiliated to any political party, which targets a minimum of one million memberships. It will be entirely locally funded and independent. The new movement springs from the initiative of Victor Ivan, a veteran journalist and the Founder Editor of weekly paper Ravaya. An invitation made by him has found quick response and, in many parts of the country, local support groups are being formed rapidly. The spontaneous response received from people from many walks of life, i.e. professionals, activists of many sorts, and the ordinary folk, is amazing.
