Sri Lanka central bank head says considering bond issue
[ Reuters ][ Jul 31 11:05 GMT ] Sri Lanka is considering a $500 million sovereign bond issue among possible fundraising options, central bank governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal said on Friday. "We are considering several options, one of which could be a $500 million bond, it could be a syndicated loan, it could be an extension of the bills and bonds that we have already opened out for foreigners," Cabraal told Reuters by telephone between meetings in Mumbai. He said he was very confident of meeting a target to maintain a 7 percent budget deficit in 2009, one of the conditions Sri Lanka needs to meet as part of an IMF loan deal.

Fishermen Scoop Up Sri Lanka?s Peace Dividend
[ New York Times ][ Jul 31 03:52 GMT ] It was just after dawn and the fish market beneath this port city?s clock tower was humming. Fishermen shouldering baskets laden with the night?s catch tipped their Spanish mackerel, tuna and prawns onto the slick concrete floor for buyers. Sweaty men with clipboards and wads of cash leaned in close to inspect with crinkled noses, squinting eyes and prodding fingers. ?I?ll take this for 500 rupees a kilo,? nearly $5, one buyer said to an expectant fisherman, waving his chin in the direction of a large, glistening yellowfin tuna. ?Can you get me more??

A Tamil Tragedy
[ HRW ][ Jul 31 03:45 GMT ] Dr. Neelan Tiruchelvam was slated to be a visiting professor at Harvard Law School in the fall of 1999. A renowned constitutional lawyer from Sri Lanka, Neelan was better known to me as a leading Tamil human rights activist who had thrown his hat into the political ring. As a scholar he had helped establish think-tanks to address social issues in a country beset by communal strife. And as a member of parliament he worked to develop a national plan that would end the then-15-year-old civil war between the secessionist Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and the Sri Lankan government.

Indian government assists disintegration of Tamil homeland

[ TamilNet ][ Jul 30 11:35 GMT ] Government of India on Wednesday announced 66 million SL Rupees scheme to 'develop' communication between the eastern coastal cities, Trincomalee and Batticaloa, in such a way that the two traditional Tamil cities will be effectively linked to the Sinhala districts than with each other. While even the shortest coastal road link between the cities are neglected of development for decades now, the Indian plan is to help Colombo running rail-buses between the cities through the colonial cum Sinhala state railway track that goes in a circular way through the Sinhala districts outside of Eastern Province.

Sri Lankan government asks Caritas for assistance to help 10,000 refugees
[ Asia News ][ Jul 30 02:59 GMT ] The government of Sri Lanka has asked Caritas Sri Lanka for assistance in helping 10,000 more refugees living in camps located in the northern part of the island. The secretary of the Ministry of Disaster Relief Services made the request for emergency assistance to the Catholic charity in order to provide immediate help for internally displaced persons (IDPs) concentrated in camps in Jaffna, Vavuniya and Trincomalee. With this request the number of refugees in the care of Caritas-SEDEC rises to 83,000.



Dayan Jayatilleka: From Geneva to Sri Lanka
[ GroundViews ][ Aug 01 17:30 GMT ] Recorded on 31st July 2009, this was the first interview on video given by Dayan Jayatilleka after he was asked to quit his position as Sri Lanka?s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva a few weeks ago. Going into the reasons behind his sudden sacking, the interview interrogates his most contentious submissions regarding the 13th Amendment, his take on the current Presidency and future prospects for peace in Sri Lanka, key memories of his sojourn in Geneva including the epic Human Rights Council sessions and other issues related to politics and democracy.
 
Sri Lanka: Coming to a Full Circle

[ SAAG ][ Aug 01 11:52 GMT ] The government of Sri Lanka under President Mahinda Rajapaksa said it was going to war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) with the battle cry of freedom. It spoke of a vision of a Sri Lanka where peoples lives would not be determined by the language they spoke. However, after the war is over, with a great deal of sacrifice of men and material resources, the emerging socio-political environment does not indicate the vision coming true; it may well remain what it was ? just a vision. By now it is clear that the word ?devolution? has joined the rank of words to be wished away - like ?federalism? - into political obsolescence.

S.I.H.:Noen er opptatt av den urett som rammer andre.Noen er utelukkende opptatt av den urett som rammer en selv, f.eks. lave fartsgrenser, dyr sprit, tiggere som holder frem et pappbeger, etc.Jeg er ikke i tvil om hva som er den mest sympatiske agendaen.
