Commemorating the sixth anniversary of Sri Lanka’s Hard Won Peace

On 19 May 2015, we commemorate the sixth anniversary of Sri Lanka’s triumph over the LTTE separatist terrorism.  This great victory preserved the territorial integrity and unitary status of Sri Lanka which has continued to be indivisible for well over 2500 years.   The resulting peace has also encouraged economic development, opened up the nation to the outside world and brought greater stability to the South Asian region and the Indian Ocean Rim.

We gratefully remember the supreme sacrifices made by the men and women of the Sri Lankan Armed Forces, the Civil Defence Force and the Police, their families as well as numerous civilians in the three decade long struggle against this terrorist outfit.  We also acknowledge the political leadership of President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse as well as the military skill and commitment of the Service Commanders Sarath Fonseka, Wasantha Karannagoda & Roshan Gunetileke who guided the Sri Lankan armed forces.

The Sri Lankan people were at the receiving end of the brutal terrorism of the fascist LTTE during this dark period when thousands of civilians of all ethnic backgrounds were killed by the LTTE using every violent method including cutting up with machetes & daggers, exploding bombs in buses, trains, public buildings, public roads and using land mines.  Untold damage was also caused to the infrastructure of the country.


Ranil’s Gestapo Police Exposed In Supreme Court

President’s Counsel, Romesh de Silva’s brilliant analysis of the politically manipulated Police unit investigating financial crimes confirms that the “My-3 regime” has created an illegal arm of the Police to pervert justice. His submission to the Supreme Court, has unerringly alerted the public to the Gestapo role of the Financial Crimes Investigation Department (FCID) – the newly established Police arm of the National Executive Council (NEC) which blindly follows the orders issued by the Prime Minister without any checks to restrain his arbitrary and politically motivated decisions taken against his opponents. Counsel Romesh de Silva’s meticulous description of the FCID debunks the inflated claims on which Yahapalanaya was marketed to the people on January 8th , 2015. His revelations blasts the political myths of the Yahapalanaya (good governance).


තාවකාලිකව රජවුනු විජාතිකත්වය පරදා ජාතික ධජය ළෙලවමු

1815දී අපව ඉංග්‍රීසීන් විසින් ගිවිසුමක් මාර්ගයෙන් කපටි ලෙස (ඔවුන්ගේ කපටිකම් වලට අපි එදවස සිටම රැවටෙමින් සිටිමු.) යටත් කර ගැනීමෙන් පසුව 1818, 1848 ආදී ලෙසින් විවිධ නිදහස් සටන් ඇතිවිය. ඒ සමහර සටන් ජයග්‍රහණයෙන්ද ඇතැම් ඒවා පරාජයෙන්ද කෙළවර විය. ජයග්‍රහණය කළද පරාජය වුවද ඒ සියල්ලම අධීන වූ නිදහසක් බටහිරින් වියෝවූ ජාතික අනන්‍යතාවයක් ගොඩනගාගැනීමට අප යන අනවරත ගමනේ සංධිස්ථාන වෙයි. 


SLFP says ‘No’ to elections in July

The UNP yesterday predicted that Parliament would be dissolved by the end of this month and a General Election held in July, while the SLFP differed saying the poll could take place only in September.


Deputy Defence Minister Ruwan Wijewardena told the “Sunday Island” that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had requested President Maithripala Sirisena to dissolve the national legislature latest by the end of this month and they were confident the President would comply, which would make a July election possible.


However, senior SLFP’er Susil Premajayanth, MP, who was also General Secretary of the UPFA, said that the earliest time frame for the next election would be September.
