Recapturing the democratic space
Published Date: 27/06/2016 (Monday)
Last week, a very senior foreign official, who had previously served as his country’s top most diplomat in Lanka, during the height of the war, told in Jaffna that according to him the present moment in Lanka constitutes the best opportunity to find a political solution. Every diplomat who visits Lanka suggests the same. Even the main Tamil political party, the Tamil National Alliance, characterized it as such and expressed hope during the election campaign last year that by the end of this year a political solution would have signed!

Former cadre of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), who had surrendered to the Sri Lankan army and undergone a year’s ‘rehabilitation’ in special camps, are manifestly eager to get back to normal life, forgetting their past. But lack of active interest on the part of the political leadership; the bureaucracy’s apathy; and above all, the Security Forces’ continued lack of faith in them; are preventing their return to normalcy. State actions ensure that eminently forgettable memories of the conflict are kept alive even though the war ended seven years ago.
