A Whitewash for Failed Politics

13th July 2017 // 0 Comments

By Ananda Ariyarathne ‘Organized Chaos’ is the most appropriate definition of the Sri Lankan Political Scene. Chaos is a condition that develops with the absence of objective oriented processes, be it cultural, economic, or political. Culturally, we see a future generation growing into a self centred and therefore selfish one, causing the destruction of the principle of mutual respect and that in turn creates a social creature craving only to grab things totally disregarding the age old ethics that discipline us. The wrong values instilled in the members of the generation make them feel overconfident about competence and freedom. This is the mentality that works even for the politicians who have become a shameless breed of scatterbrains who come up with policies that ruin the […]

Current leaders are following the same path as the corrupt regime of Rajapaksas

13th July 2017 // 0 Comments

Almost fifty percent of all politicians, as they are far too uneducated, lacking in intellectual depth and foresight on national destiny and uncaring of it, are incapable of understanding the complicated problems confronting the Nation, which have been left as an unenviable legacy by the corrupt regime of the Rajapaksas. The other fifty percent seem to be so self-absorbed that they are more interested in power and privileges that they too are blinded by present enjoyment, even though the people are made to face present and future calamity due to the government’s bad governance, negligence and the ministerial and bureaucratic administration’s incompetence and inefficiency.   It is shocking that the government has made itself a ruling clique that is taking the people for granted. They […]

Rape Pornography Industry “invades” Sri Lanka with Gruesome Murder of Pungudutheevu Schoolgirl Vithya.

13th July 2017 // 0 Comments

BY FAIZER SHAHEID The gruesome rape and murder of Vithya Sivaloganathan in 2015 is hardly discussed anymore, even among the activists who laboured and campaigned vigorously to have the perpetrators arrested, at least, not outside of the North where the entire ordeal took place. However, the case filed in the Jaffna High Court has progressed steadily, and as if the details of the rape and murder were not already disturbing enough, investigations have unearthed information far more disturbing than originally anticipated. Let me put it in perspective. Imagine that your wife, or daughter, or mother, or sister, or even a close female relative or friend was abducted, raped, and murdered in a gruesome manner. How would you deal with a situation like this? The information […]

Sri Lankan government appeases Buddhist hierarchy

13th July 2017 // 0 Comments

By K. Ratnayake Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena met with the country’s chief Buddhist priests in Kandy last Friday to assure them no constitutional changes would be made without their consent.

Their demands included: a delay in submitting a bill to parliament on the “International Convention for the protection of all persons from enforced disappearance;” no new changes to the country’s constitution except the electoral system; the protection of Buddhist cultural and archaeological sites in the north and east of the island; and a special committee to look into the grievances of Buddhists. Sirisena’s meeting took place against the backdrop of an […]

New Constitution To Determine The Fate Of The Displaced

10th July 2017 // 0 Comments

by Melanie Manel Perera If the people’s right to live and the right to protect their environment is constitutionally accepted, the issues of the ‘displaced’ will only be a temporary thing. The people’s dignity and rights will also be safeguarded. In such an environment, not only will the country’s development progress, but a sense of pride about our country will also be developed.  It is the new Constitution that will decide if environmental degradation and displacement will forever be a thing of the past and if people can live peacefully or not. The lands and homes they grew up in, played, laughed and cried is precious to anyone no matter how rich or poor. In the event these lands are lost for some reason, it could […]

Rajapaksa Family Members to Face Indictments in Ten Selected “Strong” Cases of Alleged Corruption Within next Three Months. BY GAGANI WEERAKOON The most heated Cabinet meeting ever since the election of President Maithripala Sirisena in 2015 took place last Tuesday at the President’s Secretariat with the impatient President cracking the whip against his UNP coalition partners for inaction or rather lethargy shown in taking action against the former First Family. As for the reasons he gave for his sudden anxiety over this wait for justice to be meted out against alleged corruption and other crimes which are said to have been committed by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and members of his family, seemed to be more on personal grounds than in the interest of the […]

New Constitutional reforms ensure prime place for Buddhism: Sajith No threats of any kind would affect Buddhism under the proposed new constitution the contents of which are yet in deliberating stages.

Constitution making process: To quit or not to quit: JO still dilly-dallying Mahinda: decision depends on consensus MP Weerawansa displays copy of a report which he claims was submitted by Premier Wickremesinghe on behalf of the Steering Committee spearheading constitutional making process.

MP Weerawansa said so in response to query raised by The Island at a […]

Wigneswaran Fronting For Ananthi?

10th July 2017 // 0 Comments

In  hindsight, the question now arises if the entire Northern Provincial ministers-sack drama was enacted only to bring in the controversial and even more rebellious Ananthi Sasitharan into the Government, that too over the head of the ruling TNA-ITAK’s moderate leadership? If that was not the case, still the fact remains, Ananthi is now the Minister for Women and Social Welfare, in charge of Rehabilitation and Food, other areas of common concern for all women in the North, though to varying degrees. Wife of the ‘missing’ LTTE commander, Sinnathurai Sasitharan, better known as ‘major’ Ezhilan, Ananthi was a Government servant who took bold to go on record that she saw her husband surrender to the armed forces at the end of the war in May […]

PM Covering mega corruption cases done by Mahinda family? UNP covering the killers of  Lasantha Wickrematunga and Wasim Thajudeen murders, ECONOMYNEXT – President Maithripala Sirisena has virtually declared a three-month deadline for his coalition government to prosecute those responsible for high profile murders and corruption, or risk losing its hold on power. Sirisena told the cabinet meeting on Tuesday that he was extremely uneasy about alleged backroom dealings between two members of the UNP-led government and key figures of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s administration. “The President said he was aware of those who have cut deals to either delay or scuttle some of the ongoing investigations,” a ministerial source said. “This is unacceptable.” The president told his cabinet that high profile cases would have been completed […]

Lankan accused of murdering wife in Quebec deported

6th July 2017 // 0 Comments

A Sri Lankan man accused of killing his wife in Quebec five years ago has been deported after the charge against him was stayed because of an unreasonable delay, CBC news Canada reported. Sivaloganathan Thanabalasingham, a 32-year-old permanent Canadian resident, was set to appear today at a detention review hearing, but it has been cancelled, a spokesperson at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada said Thursday.  Thanabalasingham’s second-degree murder charge was stayed in April after Superior Court Justice Alexandre Boucher ruled it had taken too long to get to trial.  Thanabalasingham was the first Quebecer charged with murder to have his case stayed because of the Jordan ruling, a Supreme Court decision issued last July which imposes strict limits on the waiting time for trials.
