MR warns proposed new law a threat to Sri Lanka

“When such a request is made, the government of Sri Lanka is obliged to inform the foreign country of the measures it intends taking to prosecute or extradite that person. Clause 21 empowers the executive arm of the State to oversee the full implementation of this international convention in Sri Lanka and Clause 23 states that this new law is to override all other written law. Articles 10 and 11 of the International Convention against Enforced Disappearances empowers any member State to arrest anybody, even a foreigner present within its jurisdiction on suspicion of having been involved in enforced disappearances in any other country. The State that carries out such an arrest can prosecute the suspect without extraditing him to his own country. Most significantly, a suspect arrested in that manner, can be handed over to an international criminal tribunal even if the suspect’s own country does not come under the jurisdiction of that international tribunal,” Rajapaksa said. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says a Bill has been gazetted to incorporate into the law of Sri Lanka, the provisions of the ‘International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearances’ which was hurriedly signed and ratified by the present Government.He warned clause 8 of this Bill enables foreign countries to seek the extradition of a Sri Lankan who is suspected, accused or convicted of having caused enforced disappearances in Sri Lanka. He said no one who is prosecuted in the courts of a foreign country or by an international criminal tribunal which is funded and maintained by interested foreign Governments in relation to a crime allegedly committed in that person’s home country, can really expect justice. “Such prosecutions are always politically motivated. All the elements that relate to an enforced disappearance – abduction, illegal confinement, murder and the illegal disposal of dead bodies etc are more than adequately covered by the Penal Code and the existing criminal law in Sri Lanka. The only real purpose of this proposed law will be to give interested foreign parties an opportunity to interfere in the justice system in Sri Lanka. Fortunately, according to our legal system and the judgement given by the Supreme Court in Nallaratnam Singarasa v. The Attorney General (2006), even an international convention that is signed and ratified does not become law in this country unless it is expressly incorporated into local law by Parliament,” he said.Rajapaksa said that even though the Government in its folly has signed and ratified an international convention that wiser nations have steered clear of, Parliament can reduce the damage to some extent by not passing the legislation to incorporate it into local law. He says the proposed law is an attempt to subject the armed forces to international war crimes prosecutions without using the term ‘war crimes’ and rephrasing it as ‘disappearances’.Rajapaksa says all Members of Parliament should be mindful that passing this Bill into law will be a clear case of betraying the country to the pro-LTTE Diaspora and the interested foreign parties backing them.

Special needs school for Bartica

Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), more so its township Bartica, is slated to house the hinterland’s first special education needs school.According to the Department of Public Information (DPI), recently delivering the announcement was Regional Chairman Gordon Bradford, who explained that the institute will be outfitted with dormitories. These dorms will cater to children with special needs living in the hinterland, remote and riverine communities.It was noted that the move to establish such a facility in the hinterland demonstrates the Government’s commitment to providing equitable and inclusive education across Guyana. The Ministry of Education, in its mandate, aims to eliminate illiteracy, modernise education, and strengthen tolerance.Access to education is a basic need and right and the Region 7 administration, working with the Ministry, has taken its commitment seriously and has so far built two new schools this year, with another three under various degrees of construction.Additionally, in Waramadong, at the newly-renamed DC Caesar Fox Secondary, a new science laboratory will be constructed for the students.This school currently houses students from several catchment areas including Waramadong, Paruima and Kamarang.Bids for the special education needs school were at the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB) attracting an engineer’s estimate of $25.9 million.For this year, Region Seven has a capital allocation of $448.6 million, which will be used for developmental projects throughout Upper, Middle and Lower Mazaruni.
