News: Children of a Lesser God: Trafficking Soars in India
Posted Date: 24/06/2016 (Friday)
Children from rural areas and disempowered homes are ideal targets for trafficking in India and elsewhere. Sunita Pal, a frail 17-year-old, lies in a tiny bed in the women’s ward of New Delhi’s Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. Her face and head swathed in bandages, with only a bruised eye and swollen lips visible, the girl recounts her ordeal to a TV channel propped up by a pillow. She talks of her employers beating her with a stick every day, depriving her of food and threatening to kill her if she dared report her misery to anybody.

News: An Evening in Jaffna with Dr. Jayampathy Wickramaratne, MP
Posted Date: 23/06/2016 (Thursday)
It was a treat to hear Dr. Wickramaratne at the Jaffna Managers' Forum on 12 June, 2016. He was there with his LSSP cohorts (the majority group of the LSSP, he carefully stated several times) to explain where things are with the Constitution. Chairman Northern Provincial Council C. V. K. Sivagnanam in his welcome address gave the Tamil nationalist expectation – not asking for confederation or separation but for power sharing with the North-East through restoring the lost rights of the Tamils which they exercised through the Kingdom of Jaffna (the largest in the island when the Portuguese arrived, he said, quoting K.M. de Silva), the state as the unit of power sharing, and a minimal role for the governor as the representative of the centre.

Posted Date: 22/06/2016 (Wednesday)

"While the governments' assurances on progress have been plentiful, its performance on the ground has been mixed and not befitting expectations outlined in your report and in the resolution as well as those of victims and people on the ground," the letter said. It also noted there have been mixed signals on the governments' commitments made through the October resolution, at the highest level of the government.

News: Reclaiming Sinhalese settlement rights in Tamil dominated Jaffna
Posted Date: 19/06/2016 (Sunday)
Supported by the Sri Lankan government machinery, Sinhala nationalist outfits and Buddhist monks from Colombo, a group of 57 Sinhalese families from South Lanka have settled in Navatkuli in the Tamil-majority North Lankan district of Jaffna in a determined bid to reclaim their rights there in the teeth of opposition from the Tamil political parties. It was in late 2009, following the end of Eelam War IV, that the then government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa took the decision to aggressively push for Sinhalese resettlement in the North to nullify the Tamil militants’ policy of fashioning a mono-ethnic Northern province as a prelude to the creation of an independent Tamil Eelam.

News: The battle in Geneva
Posted Date: 19/06/2016 (Sunday)
Against the backdrop of a statement made by former Secretary of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa that there's no Tamil problem for a political solution, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), a democratically elected political party called as the 'mirror of Tamil Tigers', and some others seeking a 'balanced' justice for all Sri Lankans killed either by the LTTE or the security forces, the government is in the process of 'narrowing' the 'outsized' United Nations Human Rights Resolution (UNHRR) passed on Sri Lanka.

News: Sampur project uncertainty continues
Posted Date: 19/06/2016 (Sunday)
The uncertainty over the Sampur thermal power project continues as the NTPC, India’s partner in the coal-fired 500-megawatt (MW) project, is awaiting advice from the Central government on the issue of change of fuel for the proposed plant. The issue has been raised by Sri Lanka, which apparently now favours liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the fuel.

News: Mr R. Sampanthan’s Adjournment Motion in Parliament
Posted Date: 18/06/2016 (Saturday)
The leader of the TNA, R. Sampanthan, has moved an important motion in Parliament (10 June 2016), on behalf of the Tamil people in the North and the East. Perhaps as he has moved the motion as the Leader of the Opposition, there is much substance and less rhetoric, both in the motion and the speech that he has delivered. I am not saying that the motion or the speech is completely devoid of ‘political rhetoric.’ But the issues that he has highlighted and the facts and information that he has supplied should draw the attention of not only the government, but also the general public at large who are concerned about the unity and reconciliation in the country. Reconciliation along with ‘justice and equality’ are the key notions that he has also highlighted.

News: Katchatheevu needs a political settlement’
Posted Date: 18/06/2016 (Saturday)
The Katchatheevu row requires only a political settlement, as there is nothing to be sorted out legally between India and Sri Lanka, according to a senior legal expert, Nirmala Chandrahasan. Ms. Chandrahasan, now a consultant to the Office for National Unity and Reconciliation (ONUR) of the Sri Lanka government, told a high-profile seminar on the India-Sri Lanka relationship here on Thursday that the Indian government did not consider Katchatheevu a “disputed territory” and it had recognised the islet as a part of Sri Lanka. As there was no legal dispute on this issue, the question of taking the matter to international courts did not arise.
