A suit was filed against Sri Lanka president Mahinda Rajapaksha by relatives of Tamil Tigers and a humanitarian worker who was in the Sri lanka’s North and East during the war time. The main accusation was that innocent civilians were killed or harmed by armed forces during the war under the regime of president Mahinda Rajapaksha. If I remember correct this case was filed in a US district court under the the Torture Victim Protection Act passed by Congress in 1992. I am curious to know the current state of this case against Sri lanka president Mahinda Rajapaksha.

Just read about the story of Layer Maduranga Vithanage in an online news paper. According to that news the Mayor of Kotte has released a video (bad one – claimed to be Lawyer Maduranga Vithanage with a girl) among party members which also include Sri lanka president. According to reports Kotte Mayor Janaka Ranawaka and Deputy Mayor (Lawyer) Maduranga Vithanage are not in good terms. They had this conflict from the nomination days. Jayantha Ranawaka was supported by Parliamentarian Duminda Silva and Maduranga is Minister Dallas Alahaperuma’s close alliance. So does any of you know where I can see this video ( No I am not a bad guy…I just want to to examine the video for authenticity…LOL). May be there has to be a downloading link ….

I’m doing a project in school on Sri Lanka and I’m having a hard time understanding what the ceasefire agreement exactly was. Most of the articles I read on it don’t make sense to me, or directly state what it did and was meant to do for the ethnic groups in war. A brief clear explanation would help so much! (i am a sophomore by the way) thanks to anyone who can help!
