News: Tamil Political Prisoners in Sri Lanka: A Road to Nowhere?
Posted Date: 15/09/2016 (Thursday)
Sri Lanka’s Tamil political prisoners have been back in the spotlight recently. Tamil political prisoners are ethnic Tamils who were allegedly members of or connected to the Tamil Tigers, a separatist group. Some have been convicted on charges of terrorism, though most have not. Many of the charges are believed to be fabricated and based upon coerced confessions, which were recorded in a language foreign to the accused. The new government has repeatedly promised to deal with the issue, but it has done little. While Obama may be keen to champion Sri Lanka’s peaceful transfer of power to bolster his foreign policy record, Colombo’s failure to act more decisively on political prisoners is unjust, calls into question its commitment to transitional justice, and illustrates that Sri Lanka is far from a clear-cut success story.

News: The UN Has Done Little to Help Those Awaiting Justice in Sri Lanka
Posted Date: 15/09/2016 (Thursday)
Ban Ki-Moon acknowledged the “big mistakes” the UN made in relation to Sri Lanka under his leadership, but is yet to lay out a concrete rights-based strategy for the country. Madushka De Silva disappeared on September 2, 2013 in Anuradhapura – Sri Lanka’s Sinhalese-Buddhist heartland in the North Central Province. The third anniversary of his disappearance coincided with Ban Ki-Moon’s visit to the country. On that day, the UN secretary general was so close, and yet so far from De Silva’s wife, Mauri Inoka.

News: Road to Nandikadal or Road to grab power
Posted Date: 14/09/2016 (Wednesday)
Last week a function was held at Ananda College, Colombo, to launch the book Road to Nandikadal by Major General Kamal Gunaratne. Neither the President, nor the Prime Minister or any Member of Parliament or Minister of this government had been invited for this function. Only former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa had received invitations. The Major General presented the book to Mahinda Rajapaksa. During Mahinda's Government, if a Major General invited only the Opposition and presented a book he had written, only to the Leader of the Opposition, the Major General would have been branded a Tiger and the stars of the Major General would have been removed and there was a chance he would even have been deprived of his pension.

News: Security forces: No more releasing of lands from Palaly cantonment
Posted Date: 12/09/2016 (Monday)
The army would not return even an inch of the 4,419 acre land belonging to the Jaffna camp and Palaly Military cantonment, Jaffna Security Forces Commander Maj Gen Mahesh Senanayake said. He said that the Palaly High Security Zone had encompassed around 11,269 acres until 2010 and 7,210 acres had been given back to their original owners on government instructions and now the army was not in a position to return any more lands owing to security requirements in the former war-zone area.
