New PM raises concerns for human rights in Sri Lanka - HRW
October 28, 2018  01:01 am


-
Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena’s decision to appoint former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as prime minister has raised fears about a return to past abusive practices in the country, Human Rights Watch said today.

The sudden announcement to sack Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe, which he contends violates parliamentary processes and the constitution, was made without informing parliament or the cabinet, the New York-based advocacy organization said.

“Rajapaksa’s return to high office without any justice for past crimes raises chilling concerns for human rights in Sri Lanka,” said Brad Adams, Asia director. 

“The current government’s failure to bring justice to victims of war crimes under the Rajapaksa government reopens the door for past abusers to return to their terrible practices.”

“The media outlets, rights organizations, and victims’ groups who had been vocal and free from government threats now fear a return to anxiety and fear,” Adams said. “It is critical that governments that helped Sri Lanka’s return to a much more rights-respecting government act to ensure those gains are not lost.”

Meanwhile the European Union, the United States and the United Kingdom have urged political parties in Sri Lanka to follow the Constitution and refrain from violence. 

The EU delegation, in a statement, urged Sri Lankan parties to follow the due institutional process and respect freedom of media. 

The statement added that the Ambassador of the European Union as well as those of France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Romania and the UK, are closely following the events as they are unfolding in the island nation. 

The US State Department has said it expects the government of Sri Lanka to uphold its Geneva commitments to human rights, reform, accountability, justice, and reconciliation.

The market is expected to be bullish as MS+MR are sure of forming a stable people friendly govt. Thanks to Namal Kumara (Director, operations of the Anti Corruption Force) who exposed the alleged coup to assassinate President. He deserves a high position in the new govt.

[size=33]Opinion: Ranil Wickremesinghe is fighting the good fight, and he will win it[/size]
Author LANCELOT
Posted on November 7, 2018 | Lead Story, Politics

Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe (C) speaks to his supporters at the Prime Minister official residence in Colombo on October 27, 2018. - Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena on October 27 suspended parliament, deepening political turmoil after he sacked the country's prime minister. (Photo by ISHARA S. KODIKARA / AFP) (ISHARA S. KODIKARA/AFP/Getty Images)


November 7, 2018 (LBO) – A fortnight ago, Sri Lanka was shocked at the news that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had been sworn in as the nation’s Prime Minister. Initial reactions of many were that they thought it was fake news, a joke even. However, as the news trickled out, and photos were circulated, it became crystal clear. President Maithripala Sirisena had sworn in Rajapaksa, without even removing the existing Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in accordance with specific articles of the constitution. The four-time Prime Minister had just six months ago shown his strength in Parliament by handily defeating a no confidence motion. Removal at this juncture was unthinkable, until now.
The constitutionality of Ranil Wickremesinghe’s removal was certainly in question, and before anyone had a chance to think about it, power had shifted. State media institutions were forcibly taken over, public servants had switched loyalties, and the police chief called on Mahinda Rajapaksa, greeting him with a smiling salute. Shortly thereafter, Ranil Wickremesinghe’s security was reduced by over 95%, and there were threats that he would be turfed out of the Prime Ministers official residence (Temple Trees) by an angry mob led by a unruly politician of small stature.
That first few nights after the recently termed ‘constitutional coup’ the situation was extraordinarily tense. UNP parliamentarians started a hurried series of meetings at Temple Trees in order to try and figure out how to respond to what many in the country felt was an illegal transfer of power. In fact, this was possibly the first illegal transfer of power since the British came and colonised Sri Lanka hundreds of years ago.
Ranil Wickremesinghe was resolute. The President’s moves to remove him were illegal, unconstitutional, and unethical. He was willing to take the ultimate stand for democracy, the constitution and the rule of law. He holed himself up in Temple Trees with the whole of the security and public service establishments eyeing to push him out. Party supporters thronged the premises in order to ensure that any threats made to the PM would be met with stiff resistance.
For the first time in a long time, the party and its Parliamentary group seemed completely united. With the exception of a few turncoats who deserted their fellow members for money and the position, the vast majority of the party seemed determined to fight against what looked like very uncertain odds. The Parliamentary group rallied their members and untied each other in the same pursuit of the PM’s noble objective, restoration of the constitution and rule of law.
Within a few days one thing became clear. It was evident that through his actions and conduct over a forty year political career, Ranil Wickremesinghe was a global leader that enjoyed significant respect and credibility throughout the world. Statements from the most powerful countries in the world poured in to support Ranil’s quest for the restoration of Sri Lanka’s constitutional democracy. Public statements were made, and calls directed to President Sirisena to convene Parliament and have a vote to see who commanded the confidence of Sri Lanka’s Legislature.
Despite the main stream media paying homage to the new leaders who emerged after the sudden change of power, social media exploded with support for Ranil Wickremesinghe and his cause. Unlike his adversaries, he was always genteel, and interested in a solution that was inline with democracy and Sri Lanka’s constitution. His statements and dealings were honest, straightforward and genuine. He was not bluffing, and was willing to do whatever necessary to protect democracy at its most fragile moment. I personally felt that he was even willing to endure physical harm and humiliation in his noble quest. He seemed all in, fully invested.
Ranil Wickremesinghe has attacked this crisis in his own way. He has been calm, collective, and kept his cards close to his chest. He has held his ground, solidified the unity of his Parliamentary groups, and received almost unwavering support among the international community. The momentum has shifted, with democratic minded legislators ready to cross the aisle and support his cause. He also seems to be winning the support of the public by making this a fight about an issue instead of a personality. There is a long way to go, but it appears that against all odds, he and his partners are turning the tide.
Criticism of Ranil Wickremesinghe at the this stage makes no sense for those working towards the same urgent mission of upholding the constitution and securing democracy. The stakes are simply too high for infighting to cause a united front to break ranks. The UNP Parliamentary group, and its partners in this mission: the JVP, TNA, Tamil and Muslim parties are resolute and united. They currently enjoy a significant majority in Parliament, and when the house is finally opened it will be clear for all to see.
As many leaders have said, this common goal is not about personalities. However, make no mistake, the only viable leader of this cause at this juncture is Ranil Wickremesinghe. Ranil’s forty year track record gives other parliamentarians an understanding of his modus operandi, and inspires trust among partners. He is not a backstabber. In a recent interview with a foreign journalist, he brushed off the suggestion of animosity towards rivals and said that backstabbing is to be expected in politics. He should know as he has been competing in the political ring for a long time, and he’s been at the receiving end of a lot of it. However, despite this, he is still standing firm and fighting the good fight. If like minded citizens continue to rally alongside him, he will win it.

Listen from Minute 36.54 to 37.30 a comment Lee Kuan Yew had made referring to the sad plight of Sri Lanka voter behaviour, which he had observed even in 1980. What an extraordinary man!!! 

That is how exactly Sri Lankan voters changed the then govt in Jan 2015 just for a change without a proper plan for progression. 

As he says once a govt is changed you can't change it for nexr 5 years by which time irreparable damage and loss being done to the country. How true!!!

A Buddhist monk ties a blessed thread on the wrist of Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe at Temple Trees yesterday. After the ceremony hundreds of Buddhist monks (right) gathered near the Buddha statue at Viharamahadevi Park in Colombo and walked to New Town Hall to hold a rally demanding that Parliament be reconvened - Pix by Pradeep Pathirana
 
The Maha Sangha yesterday convened to demand President Maithripala Sirisena to reconvene Parliament soon to end the political crisis which has engulfed the island nation for the past two weeks since the abrupt dismissal of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on 26 October by the President. A large group of Buddhist monks gathered near the Buddha statue at Viharamahadevi Park in Colombo and walked to New Town Hall to hold a rally to “reconvene Parliament and honour democracy".

Prior to attending the convention at Town Hall, the Maha Sangha came to Temple Trees and blessed Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

The Maha Sangha, who chanted Seth Pirith, invoked blessings on Wickremesinghe and proceeded to Colombo New Town Hall where the summit was to be held. President Sirisena prorogued Parliament on 27 October until 16 November. Amid pressure from political parties, civil society and the international community, including the UN and Commonwealth, the President, prolonging the political crisis, announced that Parliament would be reconvened on 14 November, only two days earlier than the scheduled date.

President Sirisena's move to prorogue Parliament is viewed as an effort to lure crossovers from the Opposition to support the Prime Minister appointed by Sirisena, Mahinda Rajapaksa, in Parliament.

Amid pressure from political parties, civil society and the international community, including the UN and Commonwealth, the President, prolonging the political crisis, announced that Parliament would be reconvened on 14 November, only two days earlier than the scheduled date.

President Sirisena's move to prorogue Parliament is viewed as an effort to lure crossovers from the Opposition to support the Prime Minister appointed by Sirisena, Mahinda Rajapaksa, in Parliament.
