News: SRI LANKA: 1983: Betrayal of the Absolute Right to Justice
Posted Date: 27/07/2016 (Wednesday)
It has been 33 years since Black July, 1983. These 33 years have been part of our lifetime. We have witnessed not only the horrendously criminal acts of July 1983, but also what happened by way of justice after those serious crimes. I would like to illustrate my point in terms of one single event: the Welikada prison massacre. This was without a doubt an act that falls within the definition of crimes against humanity. What concerns me here are the procedures of the so-called inquiries which were held into this crime. Various inquiries were announced and undertaken, and some reports were published. What becomes quite prominently clear is that, during all these inquiries, some of the senior members of the Attorney General’s Department played a blatant role in sabotaging justice. The state, rather than using the occasion to get the message across that it did not condone such acts and that it stood for the defense of the absolute right to justice, in fact proved the very opposite.

News: Strengthening the struggle for freedom and justice
Posted Date: 26/07/2016 (Tuesday)
Many feminist writers suggest that in the recent literature on democratic states, while family change has received considerable attention, the issue of gender equality has not given a prime position. However in country like ours problem is very significant as females have become not only workers but also professionals and administrators in large numbers, in the last few decades. However the policy developments associated with the new work/welfare relationship are still at a law level. Nevertheless, from a feminist perspective, it is argued that the changes amount to a modification of the masculinist model of work and welfare and its generalization to women.

News: Kilinochchi: The forgotten city of today!
Posted Date: 26/07/2016 (Tuesday)
I still remember travelling in an armed car on route to Kilinochchi and then taking an Air Force chopper that hugged a railway track to avoid sniper attacks way back in 2007-2009. At that time Kilinochchi was making headline news daily, given that the nerve centre of the rebels was located in this area. Post 2009, many development initiatives were started in Kilinochchi given that the youngest work force in Sri Lanka was said to be in this area.

News: UK Human Rights Priority Country update report: January to June 2016
Posted Date: 21/07/2016 (Thursday)
There was an improvement in the overall human rights situation in Sri Lanka in 2015, although some concerns remain. Reversing the downward trend of recent years, the government of Sri Lanka took positive steps to improve freedom of expression (including the media) and freedom of movement, reduce inter-community tensions, and restore the independence of institutions such as the Human Rights Commission. The government also signalled its willingness to address long-standing allegations of past human rights abuses and violations, co-sponsoring a resolution in the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) in October committing it to reconciliation, accountability and the protection of human rights.
