North-East merger illegal: SC

  • 16 Oct 2006 23:13:03 GMT

    The Supreme Court is indicating that it has acted in breach of the Doctrine of Separation of Powers. The Time Table through which matters are heard - must be impartial and ought to be strictly on merit basis.

    Little wonder Tamils want their own system of Justice. With this Sinhalese system, one would get distracted from Truth.

    Gaja,

    I didn`t know there is a Sinhalese Justice system in Sri Lanka. What I knew is that it was abolished 200 years ago with the departure of the last of our kings.

    Furthermore, I am willing to know the preferred justice system of Tamils.

    BTW, Kasippu mudalali of my village has a similar attitude towards the same (Sinhalese, as you may call it) justice system. I wonder why?

    The Sinhalaese Supreme court neither has the jurisdiction nor the authority to rule on matter pertaining to Tamil Eelam!

    Good.

    Now Sungoat has lost two third of his claims.

    Cheers

    [The Supreme Court is indicating that it has acted in breach of the Doctrine of Separation of Powers. ]

    SC has not acted in breach of any thing here. The doctrine of Separation of power was not in the constitution at the time of the proclamation issued by JRJ enabling the North and East to merge. Since it was unconstitutional it had been ruled null and void.

    Sharing of power or devolution of power is an essential element to establish peace in the country. Provincial council act enables that to a certain degree but may not be adequate under the present circumstances. Hence a constitutional amendment is necessary to over ride the existing clauses in the present constitution. This is the very reason the incumbent President MR is trying to reach a non partisan multi party consensus on this issue. If such a consensus is achieved but rejected by LTTE then Tamils will be the losers.

    The Sri Lankan system as practiced through majority vote is the Sinhalese system. The Tamil system is Thesa Vallmai.

    You mean he is as International as I am? Then he must be responsible for the booming drug trade at the International level.

    Magha,

    [SC has not acted in breach of any thing here. The doctrine of Separation of power was not in the constitution at the time of the proclamation issued by JRJ enabling the North and East to merge. Since it was unconstitutional it had been ruled null and void]

    The doctrine of separation is a fundamental pillar on which democracy has been built. According to this, the Executive Government cannot interfere with Judicial outcomes and v.v. It`s like saying that Doctors should not interfere with Administrative outcomes and v.v.

    WE have had this all along in auditing where the auditor is barred from participating in Management of the client. Both must produce their outcomes independent of each other. This helps us not to have to do the other`s work but to focus in producing the best outcomes we can.

    Under autocracy this division was not very visible because we followed the leaders and separation was a sin.

    You say [Sharing of power or devolution of power is an essential element to establish peace in the country. Provincial council act enables that to a certain degree but may not be adequate under the present circumstances. Hence a constitutional amendment is necessary to over ride the existing clauses in the present constitution.

    The system of democracy recognizes majority vote. Where majority vote is based on opinions rather than feelings / Personal Truths, we weaken the system.

    It`s like in Planning & Budgeting. We start of with a plan that represents common thinking so that all participants could identify with the structure and direction. But was actuals evolve we need to adjust on the basis of that Truth so that the participants continue to identify with the outcomes and feel ownership.

    The change at this time seems to be to divide and weaken Tamils. But when Tamils are educated about the Truth the GOSL is the loser - because Tamils would report directly to the International Community through unofficial paths - including economic paths.

    When I win my case here in Australia - that would help Tamils file similar cases for compensation for racial discrimination by the GOSL and its agencies. THAT is the value of intuitive connection. When one achieves others would automatically feel empowered. That is the power of One / Truth.

    By exposing the government we would be helping Tamils empower themselves.

    love

    All,

    Separation of North and East of course is GOOD. Nobody can argue against that decision. North and East are two provinces with very DIFFERENT socio political economical conditions. There is no logical reason to consider both as a single unit.

    However, what is BAD is the intention behind this demerger. This is the first attempt to bring Karuna to power in the Eastern province. This is stupid. This Karuna is a prostitute nobody should ever trust. Anybody who tries to sleep with this prostitute is in heavy risk to catch and STD.

    [The Tamil system is Thesa Vallmai.]

    GAJA,

    Thesawalamai is not a Sri Lankan Tamil thing, but a system of law forcefully implemented in peninsular Jaffna by Imperialists Dutch as an incentive to Vellalars who migrated from Tamilnadu to continue their stay here. This law was codified by Dutch Lieut. Col. Nagel in 1707 (not by any Arya Chakrawarthi) under the heading `The Malabar Laws and Customs`. As name implies, this is a law adopted from Malabars.

    However, my point is not that. Even if Thesawalamai is `the` Sri Lankan Tamil Systems of law, still there is nothing for you to worry about demerging North from East, since it has never been implemented anywhere in the East since your Dutch masters first introduced it.

    Agree with you .. He is not a man to be trusted. You may not know, at what point he turns round, and starts `biting` those who may be close to him, now.

    However, Karuna is said to have indicated that he is not happy with the de-merger. This is the stance of the Indian Govt, also. In this connection, it is worth mentioning, there are many people who believe his true loyalties lie with his pay-masters in India (RAW). If so, the plan would be to un-seat Prabha, and have Karuna in place to control both N and E - for India.

    India is playing this game, keeping the cards very `close to its chest`. If we are not too carfeul, we may find one day - Prabha `out of the scene`, and replaced by Karuna.

    (If the Indians are the `puppet masters` - Karuna will probably be replaced, after he has pulled the `chestnuts out of the fire` for the Indians. The Indian plan for NE, may be some-thing like what you have between HK and PRO .. believe they want to control the Oil and Gas resources off-shore NE. The Norwegian plan is not un-like this program, but they seem to want access to the same resources thro` Prabha).
