Militarisation of Sri Lanka's Diplomatic and Administrative Services

 
 
Militarisation Of Sri Lanka’s Diplomatic And Administrative Services
By Mandana Ismail Abeywickrema
 
Military personnel handed diplomatic and government postings despite their lack of experience in their new posts The government in post war Sri Lanka is fast militarising the administrative and diplomatic services. The appointment of military heads to key Sri Lankan missions overseas and state institutions has become a talking point among the general public. Since the appointment of military men in civil administration work as well as the diplomatic service, questions have been raised on their roles in such positions.

The difference in military discipline as opposed to the administrative and diplomatic services has caused friction between military personnel, career diplomats and public officials.

Furthermore, the militarisation of the administrative and diplomatic services has had an adverse impact on the careers of civilians who have been graded and promoted to positions according to a set of criteria in their respective line of work.

The country boasts of a rich history in relation to the administrative and diplomatic services.

The Sri Lanka Administrative Service (SLAS) is known to be the main administrative service of the government, with civil servants working for both the Central Government and the provincial councils.

It was formed in 1963 as the Ceylon Administrative Service (CAS) after the Ceylon Civil Service, which was abolished on May 1, 1963. The head of the SLAS is the Secretary to the President.

Meanwhile, the country’s foreign service was established on October 1, 1949, following the independence of Ceylon in 1948 as the Ceylon Overseas Service with the recruitment of its first batch of cadets to deal with foreign affairs.

Following Sri Lanka becoming a republic in 1972 the service changed its name to Sri Lanka Overseas Service also known as the Foreign Service.

Be that as it may, the government’s move to militarise two of the country’s key sectors has now resulted in a considerable number of diplomatic missions and other institutions being headed by military personnel.

Due to their inexperience in holding the offices they have been appointed to, some of the military men in key positions have run into various problems.

Major General Udaya Perera, who was the former Director Operations of the Sri Lanka Army, is the first serving Army officer to hold a diplomatic position as High Commissioner.

Perera is Sri Lanka’s Deputy High Commissioner to Malaysia. It is learnt that Perera has played a key role in the arrest of former LTTE International Wing leader ‘KP’ and has been stationed in Malaysia in order to crackdown on LTTE activities in the region.

However, he has now been accused by members of the Foreign Service of hampering the country’s diplomatic work in Malaysia.

It is learnt that Perera, unable to grasp the concept of a diplomat, was creating a mess in relation to investment and other business ties with Malaysia.

The appointment of another Major General to a Sri Lankan mission caused an uproar among members of the Tamil Diaspora.

Major General Jagath Dias, who commanded the 57 Division during the fourth Eelam war, was appointed Sri Lanka’s Deputy Ambassador to Germany.

Dias’s appointment was challenged by Tamil Diaspora associations who at the time filed a petition at the European Court of Human Rights against the Federal Republic of Germany for accepting his appointment.

Former Air Force Commander and Chief of Defence Staff Air Chief Marshal Donald Perera, who is Sri Lanka’s maiden ambassador to Israel was also in the limelight recently over a controversial statement made by him.

In an undiplomatic move, Perera was quoted in an Israeli newspaper last year saying that Sri Lanka was a staunch supporter of Israel’s fight against Palestinian terror.

However, hours after the news was published, Perera issued a statement denying the controversial remarks attributed to him and said that the report was ‘totally erroneous.’

The government also tried to set up a Sri Lankan mission in Eritrea by appointing the former Head of the Directorate of Military Intelligence, Major General Amal Karunasekera as its charge d’ affairs.

Karunasekera’s mission was to hunt down LTTE assets in the East African country.

However, Karunasekera was later recalled following investigations into the killing of The Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickrematunge, who was assassinated when Karunasekera was heading the Directorate of Military Intelligence.

The government’s move to appoint military men to diplomatic missions have run into problems at an international level too.

Two such incidents were the appointment of General Shavendra Silva as the Deputy Permanent Representative to Sri Lanka’s Mission in the UN in New York and the proposal to appoint former Navy Commander, Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda as Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to the UK.

Although Silva’s appointment went ahead despite concerns raised by the international community due to allegations of war crimes leveled against him, Karannagoda was not so lucky.

The government had to shelve the plan of sending Karannagoda as the High Commissioner to the UK following strong objections raised by the Tamil Diaspora there.

Karannagoda is now tipped to be appointed as Ambassador to the Sri Lankan mission in Tokyo, Japan. He also served as Secretary to the Highways Ministry, a post that is usually held by a member of Sri Lanka’s administrative service.

Apart from the diplomatic missions, the government has also appointed military men to state-run institutions as well.

The most recent such appointments are former Army Commander Lieutenant General Rohan Daluwatte as the Chairman, National Gem and Jewellery Corporation, and the three armed forces chiefs to the Board of the Water’s Edge members-only club at Battaramulla.

Rao to take up with Colombo killing of Indian fishermen

Rao to take up with Colombo killing of Indian fishermen


PTI – Fri, Jan 28 1:13 PM IST

New Delhi, Jan 28 (PTI) Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao will travel to Colombo tomorrow to discuss with the Sri Lankan government the killing of Indian fishermen in the past one month allegedly by its navy.


"External Affairs Minister S M Krishna has asked the Foreign Secretary to go to Sri Lanka tomorrow to discuss the killing of Indian fishermen with the government there," sources said here today.


Reflecting the political sensitivities in Tamil Nadu, India has already reacted very strongly to the incidents in which two Indian fishermen were killed in the span of one month, notwithstanding Sri Lankan government''s claim that its navy was not involved.


Terming the incidents as "very serious" and "unacceptable", India has said that such incidents have no "justification" and called on Sri Lankan authorities to "desist" from the use of force.


A fisherman was killed and two others were injured while fishing off Kodiakarai coast on January 22. The man, who had put out to sea with two others from Pushpavanam coastal hamlet, died after Sri Lankan Naval personnel allegedly tied a rope around his neck and pushed him into the water, fisheries department sources said.


On January 12, an Indian fishermen was killed in Palk Straits when Lankan Navy allegedly opened fire at three fishermen, who put out to sea from Jagadapattinnam near Pudukottai.

Solheim asked Lunstead to keep B’singham comment on Prabha confidential
The Island (SL) January 23, 2011, 9:44 pm

US Amb felt Tigers would come up with new conditions even if SLG agreed for talks on ISGA


One-time LTTE Chief Negotiator, Anton Balasingham, secretly expressed satisfaction over growing international pressure on LTTE leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran, for assassinations carried on his orders.


The former British High Commission employee (in Colombo) had felt that international pressure could force Prabhakaran to stop his murderous campaign. According to a leaked US diplomatic missive authored by the then US Ambassador in Colombo, Jeffrey Lunstead, in April 2004, the Chief Norwegian Peacemaker, Erik Solheim, had told him of Balasingham’s opinion, while insisting this shouldn’t be shared with other peace co-chairs. The US cable revealed that Solheim wanted Balasingham’s comment kept strictly private and confidential.


Balasingham had expressed the belief that the then US Deputy Secretary of State, Richard Armitage, had put pressure on Prabhakaran by a making a strongly worded statement in mid August 2004.


Solheim, addressing the Sri Lanka donor group in Colombo at the end of a four-day visit to Sri Lanka, had asserted that bold steps should have been taken by both parties to re-start talks. Solheim had believed talks could be resumed if the wording of the agenda regarding an Interim Self Governing Authority (ISGA) could be
resolved.


Solheim also noted that he saw no signal that either side wanted to go back to war. Obviously hostilities could resume through some inadvertent incident, but, Solheim had believed, there was no deliberate plan by either side to resume fighting. According to him, the bottom line was that the "no war/no permanent peace" situation was certainly preferable to a resumed war.


Solheim asserted that the ISGA was a ‘small issue’, though the government and the LTTE had been bogged down over it. The US cable quoted Solheim as having said that Thmailselvan told him (Solheim) the LTTE couldn’t be flexible on the formulation for talks. But once the talks began, the LTTE could be flexible flexible on the ISGA proposal, and were ready to discuss alternate proposals.


Interestingly, Thamilchelvan had felt that the government was now in a better position to enter talks based on the ISGA because of the entrance into the ruling coalition of the Ceylon Workers Congress, and because of statements by the opposition United National Party (UNP) that it would support the government if it entered negotiations based on the ISGA. The LTTE, Thamilchelvan said, would not put forward any further conditions.

The Tigers, Solheim said, were in no particular hurry, and saw no need to help any particular Southern political party.


On the status of the cease-fire, Solheim said that both parties were broadly adhering to it, but neither party was strictly following it. The government had tried to use Karuna to weaken the LTTE, while the LTTE continued its campaign of assassinations of its opponents. Hence both sides were playing with fire.


Ambassador Lunstead told Solheim that his (Solheim´s) emphasis seemed to be on resolving the agenda issue as the roadblock to resumed talks. However, many in the South were saying that the Tigers would not come back to the table until they were able to reassert their control in the East. Did he think that was the case? Solheim said he did not agree. If the President met the LTTE demands on the agenda and ISGA, he said, the Tigers will come to the table. Solheim also said that Balasingham would resume his role as chief negotiator for the Tigers.


Lunstead said that though the Tigers seemed to be feeling some international pressure, but it was not clear if it had actually changed their behavior in any way.


Solheim’s assessment that neither side wants or is planning for a return to war was hopeful —if it was accurate, the UN envoy said adding that the Norwegian’s assessment that only the ISGA formulation remained as a roadblock to new talks could only be tested if the Government came around on that point. The US official
went on to assert that it was quite possible that the Tigers would just come up with new conditions.

Unlike Mr. Hu’s previous trip five years ago, when he was not accorded full honors and a series of gaffes marred the visit, this one seems to have gone exactly according to script — which is how Beijing likes largely ceremonial events such as state visits. There was a 21-gun salute, a gala dinner, business deals signed, a small child hugged, a major speech given and a live press conference that went about as well as could be expected for the press-shy Mr. Hu.


From China, Almost a Sigh of Relief
By IAN JOHNSON
Newyork Times Published: January 21, 2011

BEIJING — President Hu Jintao’s ground-breaking trip to the United States is not quite over, but the sense of relief here over how well it has gone is almost palpable. Unlike Mr. Hu’s previous trip five years ago, when he was not accorded full honors and a series of gaffes marred the visit, this one seems to have gone exactly according to script — which is how Beijing likes largely ceremonial events such as state visits. There was a 21-gun salute, a gala dinner, business deals signed, a small child hugged, a major speech given and a live press conference that went about as well as could be expected for the press-shy Mr. Hu.

From China’s point of view, the trip was designed to do two things: show Mr. Hu being accorded the respect he is due as head of a powerful country. That was the Washington part of the trip with all of its pomp and circumstance.

It was also meant to highlight China’s soft power by having Mr. Hu visit Chicago and inspect a Chinese company — to show that China is not just the world’s factory but an investor and job creator itself overseas. Also on the agenda was a Confucius Institute, one of the country’s new chain of cultural centers that Beijing is banking on to spread its influence in more subtle ways.

These goals contrasted with the more contentious concerns that Washington wanted to address, especially the tensions with North Korea, growing trade problems and the stubborn issue of human rights.

These issues could have made the trip much rockier than it was, especially since China today is more powerful than in visits past.

Meanwhile, perhaps reflecting its own weakened position, the United States also took a tough line in the lead-up to the meeting, with three top Obama administration officials issuing blunt statements about China’s need to change.

But in the end, harmony largely prevailed.

“China and the United States both had some doubts about the other in 2010, but this trip has successfully cleared people’s minds,” said Yuan Peng, a professor at the

China Institute of Contemporary International Relations in Beijing. “The Chinese media lavished attention on this trip.”

The latter was on full display on Thursday, when the ruling Communist party’s flagship newspaper, People’s Daily, did not appear as usual in the morning. In years past that would have been an epochal event, perhaps signaling to Sinologists an internal struggle over the wording of an editorial or the placing of a picture — so
carefully written and designed is the party mouthpiece.

Thursday’s delay was less mysterious, but did reflect the visit’s vital importance to Beijing. Leaders had held the presses until the end of the state dinner Wednesday night in order to get in Mr. Hu’s great moment. Given the 13-hour time difference between Washington and Beijing, that meant the Thursday paper only went to press late Thursday morning in Beijing and delivered Friday. Other top party newspaper followed suit.

Most accounts were fairly factual, detailed and dull. One article in People’s Daily was titled “To Open A New Chapter in the Sino-U.S. Cooperative Partnership.” The overall tenor was that the trip helped ease tensions and prevented a new Cold War from breaking out between the two powers.

Inasmuch as the American concerns were addressed in the media, it was to rebut them — for example, that China is a fair trader and doing its bit for the world economy by growing.

The one exception could have been human rights but it was dodged deftly. On Wednesday, two western reporters asked Mr. Hu about human rights. But Mr. Hu was well-prepared and had a stock answer at hand:

China values human rights but is a big, developing country and still needs to improve. The answer echoed the country’s official position paper on human rights and was not given much prominence in China. The press conference was not broadcast live on Chinese television but a video recording is available on major Chinese Web sites, like tudou.com.

“Hu’s comments reflect his nonconfrontational political style,” said Russell Leigh Moses, a Beijing-based political analyst. “He’s simply not going to get into a public debate with Obama on human rights, for he sees that as creating a poor atmosphere for other issues that Beijing deems more important to stabilizing the relationship.”

Ordinary people’s views of the visit were even harder to fathom. There are no major polls that track public opinion on matters such as this, leaving observers to rely on extremely selective sources, such as Internet chatrooms--which were under even tighter monitoring than usual--or casual chats with people on the street.

Most comments in chat rooms called the trip a success. One bellicose commentator in a military affairs chat room said the question about human rights was meant as a “provocation” to Mr. Hu because it was only brought up to embarrass him.

On the street, most people seemed concerned with the upcoming Chinese New Year holiday, the most important of the year when the country shuts down for nearly two weeks.

“I thought the visit looked good and Obama treated Hu very well,” said Li Tao, a 35-year-old storekeeper in Beijing. “But honestly I am paying more attention to the storms down south that might influence the transportation network. I need to get home for the holiday.”

இரட்டை இலைக்கு வாக்களிக்க செந்தமிழன் சீமான் அறைகூவல்!

தேர்தல் பங்கேற்பு
ஈழத்தமிழர் அழிவில் நடத்தும் ஈனப் பிழைப்பு!
காங்கிரஸ் - கருணாநிதி கூட்டுக்கு மாற்று, பிஜேபி -ஜெயலலிதா கூட்டணி அல்ல!
தேர்தல் பாதை பாசிசப் பாதை!
மக்கள் ஜனநாயகக் குடியரசமைக்கும் புரட்சிப்பாதையே ஜனநாயகப் பாதை!
இதுவே ஈழத்தமிழரைக் காக்கும் பாதை!

Tiger buddy with nuisance value takes on Karuna

Chennai, Jan. 11: Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu may be five months away but at least one person has announced his candidature against the electoral might of Tamil Nadu chief minister M. Karunanidhi.
Tamil film director-turned-actor Sebastian Seeman, a fiery supporter of the LTTE and the Tamil Eelam cause, has declared that he was ready to be the common candidate to challenge Karunanidhi at whichever constituency he contests, and sought the support of all Opposition parties.
“My aim is to defeat Karunanidhi in a one-on-one fight for his betrayal of Sri Lankan Tamils and for this, I am ready to join hands with anyone, including the AIADMK,” he told reporters after a meeting with MDMK leader Vaiko.
His sole agenda for the 2011 elections would be to defeat the DMK-Congress combine, he added.
Seeman, 36, has been arrested twice under the National Security Act (NSA) by the DMK government for his fiery oratory in support of the LTTE and against Sinhalese living in Tamil Nadu. He had declared his intention to take on Karunanidhi after he was released from jail last month when the high court quashed his detention under the NSA.
A supporter of slain LTTE leader V. Prabhakaran, Seeman had directed a Tamil movie titled Thambi, Prabhakaran’s pet name. In November 2009, he was deported from Canada for addressing pro-LTTE meetings and threatening the Sinhalese.
During the last stage of the LTTE’s war against the Sri Lankan forces in 2009, Seeman had floated the Naam Thamizhar Iyakkam (Our Tamil Movement) to rally the pro-Tiger forces against the Congress and the DMK for not preventing the decimation of the rebel group. In the May 2009 Lok Sabha election, his outfit had supported pro-LTTE candidates against Congress nominees, including home minister P. Chidambaram. “Our campaign against the Congress was responsible for senior Congress leaders K.V. Thangkabaalu and E.V.K.S. Elangovan losing in those elections while Chidambaram himself could just squeak through,” Seeman had claimed after the results.
He had paraded a group of Mumbai Tamils in front of Amitabh Bachchan’s house in Juhu to urge him not to participate in the IIFA awards held in Colombo last year.
The Naam Thamizhar Iyakkam has been touting itself as the self-proclaimed guardian of Tamil culture and had attacked the Chennai residence of Malayalam actor Jayaram after he made fun of Tamil domestic helps in a TV show.
“Seeman has the following of a small group of committed Tamil youths who are ready to hit the streets and vent their fury against any target he chooses. He is the Tamil version of Raj Thackeray, who may never become a mainstream force but can be of immense nuisance value,” a senior intelligence officer said.
The DMK remains unfazed about the Seeman challenge. “Our leader has won 11 Assembly elections since 1957 and triumphed even during the anti-DMK wave of 1991 following Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination, being the sole winner from our party. So even if Seeman is endorsed as the common candidate, it would only spur our cadres to ensure the re-election of our leader,” a senior minister said.
Normally, the AIADMK gives away the seat in which Karunanidhi is contesting to one of its allies, so it can concentrate on a more winnable seat. So if Seeman really gets to take on the DMK veteran, he could be the first known person to challenge Karunanidhi in a long time.
The chief minister has to look for a new seat as his current Chepauk constituency has been merged with the neighbouring Triplicane seat after delimitation. There is also the distinct possibility of his not contesting the election because of his age and he may prefer to enter the legislative council which is being revived now.
The only time Karunanidhi had not contested an Assembly election was in 1984 when he was a member of the council, after having resigned his Assembly seat in 1983 to protest against the Centre’s inaction to stop the ethnic violence against Lankan Tamils in Sri Lanka.
Ironically, his future opponent is using the same line to take on Karunanidhi now.
