Published Date: 27/07/2016 (Wednesday)

SRI LANKA: 1983: Betrayal of the Absolute Right to Justice
Published Date: 27/07/2016 (Wednesday)
It has been 33 years since Black July, 1983. These 33 years have been part of our lifetime. We have witnessed not only the horrendously criminal acts of July 1983, but also what happened by way of justice after those serious crimes. I would like to illustrate my point in terms of one single event: the Welikada prison massacre. This was without a doubt an act that falls within the definition of crimes against humanity. What concerns me here are the procedures of the so-called inquiries which were held into this crime. Various inquiries were announced and undertaken, and some reports were published. What becomes quite prominently clear is that, during all these inquiries, some of the senior members of the Attorney General’s Department played a blatant role in sabotaging justice. The state, rather than using the occasion to get the message across that it did not condone such acts and that it stood for the defense of the absolute right to justice, in fact proved the very opposite.

Many feminist writers suggest that in the recent literature on democratic states, while family change has received considerable attention, the issue of gender equality has not given a prime position. However in country like ours problem is very significant as females have become not only workers but also professionals and administrators in large numbers, in the last few decades. However the policy developments associated with the new work/welfare relationship are still at a law level. Nevertheless, from a feminist perspective, it is argued that the changes amount to a modification of the masculinist model of work and welfare and its generalization to women.
