News: Governmental Apathy, Continued Surveillance Inhibit Rehabilitation of LTTE Cadre
Posted Date: 24/06/2016 (Friday)
Former cadre of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), who had surrendered to the Sri Lankan army and undergone a year’s ‘rehabilitation’ in special camps, are manifestly eager to get back to normal life, forgetting their past. But lack of active interest on the part of the political leadership; the bureaucracy’s apathy; and above all, the Security Forces’ continued lack of faith in them; are preventing their return to normalcy. State actions ensure that eminently forgettable memories of the conflict are kept alive even though the war ended seven years ago.

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.

"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.

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.
