It is very unfortunate that in our country many people, mostly Tamils in particular, refuse to believe what can be publicly acknowledge as Gospel truth, while they shout from roof tops believing all what is said by some selfish politicians, who have no scruples in running with the hare and hunting with the hound and smartly exploiting the LTTE for their own political advantage.

GTF Expresses Dismay over Lack of Accountability Measures in Sri Lanka

The Global Tamil Forum (GTF) is dismayed that more than eight years after the end of war, Sri Lanka has yet to demonstrate that it is genuinely committed to addressing the accountability issues occurred during the brutal armed conflict. Despite twice co-sponsoring UNHRC resolutions calling for comprehensive transitional justice measures, the present coalition government has not lived up to its commitments and yet to take any meaningful steps in this respect.

Why is India worried about China consolidating in Sri Lanka?

On Saturday, Sri Lanka finally signed a $ 1.1 billion deal selling China 70 percent stake in its strategic Hambantota port. The fact that the Chinese signatory, the state-run China Merchant Port Holdings, is a Hong Kong based firm reminds not just of a similar 99 year lease that Chinese had signed in 1841 following their Opium War with Great Britain.
