News: Sri Lanka’s missing people Refusing to give up hope
Posted Date: 05/08/2016 (Friday)
SEVEN years ago, at a busy crossroads in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s largest city, armed men in an unmarked white van abducted Stephen Sundararaj. He was going home, his three children snuggled up against him, after idling for weeks in a police cell. Mr Sundararaj, then a 39-year-old project manager at a local human-rights group, had been detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, a draconian law permitting arrests without warrant for “unlawful activities”. He challenged the move in court and would have pursued the case, had he not been hauled away mere hours after his release. He was never charged with a crime. He has never been found.

News: Dion’s Sri Lanka visit: Step in right direction, but more must be done Making a substantial contribution to post-conflict reconciliation in Sri Lanka would go a long way to show Canada’s engaged approach to global affairs.
Posted Date: 03/08/2016 (Wednesday)
Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion’s visit to Sri Lanka last week was a welcome symbol of the important steps that Canada is taking to help support reconciliation efforts in the island nation. Although Sri Lanka’s devastating civil war ended in 2009, post-conflict rebuilding efforts remain unfinished and a lasting and permanent peace has yet to be achieved. It is therefore vital that Canada remains focused on Sri Lanka in the months and years ahead. As the home of one of the largest Tamil diasporas outside of South Asia, Canada is in a unique position to help advocate for the improvement of Sri Lanka’s human rights situation, promote political accountability, and make a lasting contribution to peace and development in the island nation.

News: Sri Lanka: 10 Years Since Aid Worker Massacre International Role Needed to Ensure Justice
Posted Date: 01/08/2016 (Monday)
Sri Lankan authorities have not brought to justice those responsible for the execution-style slaying of 17 aid workers a decade ago this week, Human Right Watch said today. On August 4, 2006, gunmen murdered local staff members from the Paris-based Action Contre La Faim (Action Against Hunger, ACF) at their compound in the town of Muttur, in eastern Trincomalee district. The special court being set up by the government of President Maithripala Sirisena should ensure that the ACF killings and other wartime atrocities are fully and fairly tried with significant foreign involvement, and all those culpable brought to account, regardless of rank or position, Human Rights Watch said.
