The Sri Lankan rupee traded steady on Thursday in dull trade as many factories were closed for business after the Sinhala-Tamil new year ahead of a long weekend, dealers said. The spot rupee was at 130.60/65 per dollar at 0740 GMT. “It is almost a dead market because there is no trade at all due to the holiday mood,” a currency dealer said on condition of anonymity.

UK flag

Simply because Britain claims that colonial crimes happened centuries ago and have made sure that they omitted these from being covered when they drafted international laws and legal systems the crimes the Christian Western nations committed cannot be kept hidden any longer. Simply because the UK joins US and the EU to create a bloc of nations with groups of other nations threatened to join or risk aid being cut off, enabling them to ensure UNHRC Resolutions get passed with a majority, silencing these victim nations should the Rest of the World sit silent and watch injustices prevail?

LTTE Ban

The Government of Sri Lanka on 1st April 2014 banned the LTTE and 16 LTTE fronts and named 424 individuals and organizations to be investigated for links to terror. These entities are all operating from overseas with leaders having ties with foreign politicians and parliamentarians as well as tied to various charities and NGOs. Ironically, the banned entities are operating in countries that have banned the LTTE and continues to maintain the ban. With the Government taking a principled stand on the need to completely negate the overpowering influence exerted by foreign passport holding LTTE diaspora, the External Affairs Minister and Ministry cannot take a lackluster approach by simply waiting for Colombo to give them standing orders. They must take a more proactive and assertive role and counter the anti-Sri Lanka propaganda as well as come down hard on the foreign nations allowing the banned entities to prevail. This is no time for cringing diplomacy.
