The National Co-existence, Dialogue and Official Languages Ministry has initiated a programme to paste stickers with the wording “Sri Lankan: our identity, diversity, strength” on vehicles towards implementing the trilingual policy of the government. National Co-existence, Dialogue and Official Languages Minister Mano Ganeshan and Deputy Minister Alishahir Mowlana formally commenced the campaign by pasting stickers on vehicles at the Batticaloa bus stand. The motive is to infuse the spirit of oneness among all Sri Lankans. Additional Secretary to the National Co-existence, Dialogue and Official Languages Ministry R. Ravindran, Director General Prasath R. Kerath, Additional Director G. Gopinath and Batticaloa District Director Planning R. Nedunchelian participated. TRANSFORMING COLOMBO

Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka is one of the few ministers in the Yahapalanaya government who maintains a visible presence. The other, of course, is Sajith Premadasa. Both are on the ball, so to speak. Hardly a day passes without either one or the other being shown on TV,

Minister Ranawaka, no doubt, has a gigantic task on his hands, that of developing and upgrading the infrastructure of the Western Province, particularly effecting a radical transformation of the Colombo city from its present parlous state.

addressed on a priority basis. Employment avenues have to be created for the adults who have been living on vice all their lives. It has to be a wholesome change rather than mere supplanting these slum dwellers from their ‘roots’ to more hospitable accommodation. Besides, there will also be an unforeseeable issue of a political nature that will work to the disadvantage of the UNP. Slum dwellers in the Colombo city, by tradition, vote for the Greens and the UNP is bound to lose this bloc vote, to some degree at least, if it tries to evict them by force. It matters little to them if the change is made to better their lot, for the above stated reasons. Hence, the minister should move cautiously in the matter.

Speaking at a function the other day, the minister revealed his master plan to rebuild and change the facade of the Colombo city. In this endeavour his first task will be the relocation of shanty dwellers to more acceptable accommodation. The minister plans to construct 100,000 fully fledged apartment homes for Colombo city’s shanty dwellers within the next ten years. This no doubt, is going to be a monumental task, but the minister appears to have set his mind to it in all Be that as it may, slums are not the only problem seriousness.

To begin with, there are some floodwaters. The derelict drainage system, which is of 60,000 shanties in the Colombo city alone, according colonial vintage, should be ripped out and re-laid. The to a recent survey, the demolition of which is going to run into stiff opposition. It is difficult to change the life system was built when Colombo hardly had 500,000 inhabitants.

PARLIAMENT

‘DESPITE COUNTRY’S DIFFICULT SITUATION, GOVT. BOASTING OF TAX EXEMPTED COMMODITIES’ One does not need to go through piles of books and dig up numbers to get a feeling of the government’s failed economic policy, but it is amply visible if we look at the life of the ordinary citizen, if we look at the country’s crumbling industries, if we look at the uncertainty that is prevalent in the lives of farmers and the rate of unemployed youth. “Yet, despite the pathetic situation the country’s economy is at, the government is still boasting about having exempted certain commodities from non-duty levies of around 1,200 imported items. The State Finance Minister confidently gloats that the government is ready to lift the levy from another 3,000 imported items within the next three years,” he added. Noting that a certain Chinese manufactured phone which costs $7 to manufacture, is being imported to Sri Lanka for $ 6.50. “Why would they do this. It is because the government pays them a dollar for every phone that is imported, so they earn $ 50 cents per phone. Under these conditions, how could anyone else compete? This is the reason other countries impose certain levies in order to protect their domestic industries,” Dissanayake pointed out.

former minister Basil Rajapaks’s purview and all these islands were put up for sale during their tenure.

SRI LANKA ELEVATED IN EYES OF WORLD

29th MAY 2018

The re-accreditation of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; status by the Global Alliance for National Human Rights Institutions (GANHRI) has elevated Sri Lanka to the position of a disciplined and honourable nation before the eyes of the international world, Chairman, Constitutional Council and Speaker of the House of Parliament Karu Jayasuriya said in a message of congratulations sent to the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL). The message said this confirmed that Sri Lankans are citizens of a law-abiding society upholding equality, justice and freedom. This was a giant step forward taken by us as a nation, the Speaker said. Jayasuriya said he wished to thank the government which provided an opportunity for human rights organisations to act without obstruction to gain this honourable position and the HRCSL which played an active role in achieving it. Jayasuriya said he wished the HRCSL all power and strength to operate as an independent mechanism to safeguard human freedom and rights in Sri Lanka.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has launched an investigation into corruption allegations in the sport made in a documentary aired by news organisation Al Jazeera on Sunday. The documentary allegedly uncovers a groundsman agreeing to doctor pitches for test matches. “The ICC is aware of an investigation into corruption in cricket by a news organisation and as you would expect we will take the contents of the program and any allegations it may make very seriously,” the governing cricket body said in a statement. Al Jazeera has claimed that a well-known former Mumbai first-class cricketer Robin Morris, who is now allegedly a match-fixer, admitted to his involvement in bribing a groundsman at Galle last year to alter the pitch. Snippets of the sting operation have been posted online by the channel. A Test match between India and Sri Lanka last year might have been played on a pitch doctored at the behest of match-fixers, a sting operation has claimed, prompting the ICC to launch an investigation into the matter on Saturday. The match in question was the first Test between India and Sri Lanka at Galle from July 26-29. ICC has confirmed about investigating the latest round of sensational allegations against the integrity of the much-maligned sport.

materials relating to corruption in cricket is released immediately to enable us to undertake a full and comprehensive investigation,” he added. “The groundsman, Tharanga Indika, assistant manager at the Galle stadium, says he can make pitches to favour either bowlers or batsmen. If you want a pitch for spin bowling or pace bowling or batting, it can be done,” the channel claimed on its website. In the clipping, the 41-yearold Morris, who played 42 first-class matches but never competed for India, gestures towards Indika and says, “What happens is he - we - can make a pitch to do whatever we want it to do.” “Because he’s the main curator. He is the assistant manager and curator of the Galle stadium,” the website quotes Morris. Indika allegedly claimed to the website that he prepared the pitch for the batsmen and told the undercover reporter that he will provide him with leads to place bets. “India was set for a batting wicket. We pressed the wicket thoroughly with a roller and then we put water on it to make it even harder,” the former India U-19 seamer-all-rounder has been quoted as saying in the sting video adding that the next “pitch fix” will be during England’s tour of Sri Lanka in November, this year at the same venue. – News World of India Meanwhile website Sportskeeda reported, “Journalist David Harrison’s investigations have led to the alleged exposing of the crux of the dark side of cricket, match and spot fixing. The involved personnel go about their business by bribing curators, current and former cricketers to sway the outcome of sessions or an entire match in ways they deem profitable to themselves. “Among the cricketing involvements are the youngest ever Test debutant Hasan Raza and three Sri Lankan international representatives – Dilhara Lokuhettige, Jeevantha Kulatunga and Tharindu Mendis – all of them have been reported to have indulgence in spot-fixing or tampering with the pitch to determine the result of the match in a particular time frame.

TGTE’S RESPONSE TO THE STATEMENT BY SRI LANKAN FOREIGN MINISTER continuation of last issue What this goes to show is simply is the fact that Sri Lanka remains completely unreformed as far as the administration’s attitude towards nations and nationalities in the country are concerned– they are to be relegated to the status of second-class citizens and kept in perpetual fear, anxiety and being dispossessed of their basic human rights. After the genocide carried out against the Tamils, it seems that it is the turn of the Muslims of Sri Lanka to bear the brunt of the country’s racist policies. There is a lesson here for the international community also, in that, weak and ineffective steps to ensure justice for the Tamils will only embolden Sri Lanka to continue with its atrocities against both the Tamils and the Muslims. It is time for the world to step in and stop this injustice. WAY FORWARD: In light of the total repudiation of Sri Lanka’s commitment to the HRC outlined above, what the international community must reckon with now is the fact that Sri Lanka will never deliver on its commitments made to fellow UN member states to hold the perpetrators of atrocious international crimes accountable. Therefore, the situation in Sri Lanka must be referred to the Security Council without delay so that the Council may exercise its Chapter VII powers outlined by the UN Charter and refer the Sri Lankan situation to the ICC, which now remains as the only forum capable of bringing an end to the institutionalized impunity in Sri Lanka and its threat to international peace and security. It is said in some quarters that the states on the UN Security Council (UNSC) may not support the above initiative. We wish to emphasize here that the history and the evolution of human rights law and transnational justice demonstrate that it was the people and not the states who are initiators of human rights law. For example, the establishment of the International Criminal Court or the transnational justice mechanisms in Latin American countries were not initiated by the states, they were

initiated by the people. States were the followers of people power. Moreover, TGTE also believes that the initiatives introduced in the Security Council recently are conducive to the referral of Sri Lanka to the ICC. On October 23, 2015—exactly 9 days after the adoption of Resolution 30/1—the Accountability, Coherence and Transparency Group (ACT) launched its code of conduct, calling on Member States to “pledge to support timely and decisive action” by the Security Council when it comes to resolutions aimed at preventing and ending war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. States that commit to the pledge agree not to vote against credible draft resolutions intended to end or prevent atrocity crimes. When ACT first convened a ministerial-level presentation of the code at the UN headquarters on October 1, 2015, 56 Members States, including two permanent UNSC Members (France and the UK) possessing veto power expressed support. As of February 12, 2018, 115 Member States and 2 Observers have signed on to the code of conduct, more than doubling the initial number of adopters. The notable momentum behind the ACT Group’s Code of Conduct is concerning Member States agreeing not to vote against credible resolutions that seek to prevent or end atrocity crimes. As the High Commissioner for Human Rights pointed out in his opening speech to the HRC, the Security Council recently passed a Resolution calling for cease fire in Syria. The Resolution on Syria, where major powers have conflicted,and geopolitical interests passed without the use of veto,emboldens our call for referral to the ICC. Also, the UN High Commissioner’s explicit call for a special court supported by international practitioners, as a response to Sri Lanka’s failure to demonstrate the willingness or the capacity to address impunity, demonstrates to us that Sri Lanka can be taken up by the Security Council. LEVELING THE FIELD FOR NON-RECURRENCE: Transnational justice in the form of international adjudication will contribute to leveling the playing field between the Tamil victims and the Sri Lankan state, the warhead of Sinhala Buddhist dominance. Taking no action towards international adjudication will be a strategic disaster in the struggle to realize the fourth pillar of transnational justice, namely, non-recurrence.

CONCLUSION: Member States of the UN Human Rights Council should take firm steps to ensure that Sri Lanka fully implements its commitment to UNHRC Resolution 30/1, by March 2009, as stipulated by the Resolution which was cosponsored by Sri Lanka itself. Therefore, the HRC should refer Sri Lanka’s failure to provide accountability for atrocity crimes to the Security Council, with the recommendation that the Council refer Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC) as it did with respect to North Korea. The HRC must continue to be seized with the implementation of Resolution 30/1 and 34/1, including recommending to member states that they impose calibrated sanctions corresponding to progress on implementation of the commitments Sri Lanka made in those Resolutions. The large and politically active Tamil diaspora, through their determination, dedication, knowledge, and above all, the sheer willpower, can make Governments in their respective countries listen to reason. They will move forward to refer Sri Lanka to the Security Council, with the recommendation to refer it to the ICC. We call upon the Tamil Disapora to provide the necessary evidence to the Attorneys General Departments in their respective host countries to bring prosecutions under Universal Jurisdiction. When the grandchildren of today’ Tamil parents ask in the future what they did to advance the wishes of a 1.6 million people who called for referral of Sri Lanka to the ICC, and what was done to take up the UN High Commissioner’s call for a special tribunal supported by international practitioners as a response to Sri Lanka’s unwillingness to engage in accountability process, we may not be able to answer them looking in their eyes, if we fail in this task history has entrusted upon us. The call of the hour is strategic vision, unwavering commitment with passion, and unified action.
