Menik Farm camp closure is a milestone, says UN's Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Sri Lanka Doctor Subinay Nandy

The closure of Menik Farm camp which once housed 300,000 Tamils displaced during the country’s decade-long ethnic war is a milestone in addressing the issue of displacement in Sri Lanka said United Nation's Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Sri Lanka Doctor Subinay Nandy on October 24, reports Daily News. Nandy said that as the country transitions from a conflict situation to peace and development UN support currently spans in both humanitarian and development spheres. Under the humanitarian funding UN has mobilized nearly USD 300 million since 2010 to support emergency operations in conflict, flood and drought affected areas. From 2008 to end 2012, the UN supported the Government through technical and financial assistance to a total value of approximately USD 600 million, he said. 

Meanwhile, National Freedom Front (NFF) Leader and Housing and Construction Minister Wimal Weerawansa on October 25 (today) said that the 13th Amendment to the Constitution is similar to a time bomb waiting to explode, reports Colombo Page. Explaining that the 13th Amendment would result in a federal governing structure where powers are devolved to the provinces, Minister Weerawansa noted that the Government and the country would be faced with many problems in such an eventuality. According to Weerawansa, the Government needs to take firm steps to repeal the 13th Amendment.  

The Minister has requested President Mahindra Rajapaksa to hold a referendum to repeal the provincial council system. The campaign in Sri Lanka to repeal the provincial council system brought into existence by the 13th Amendment is growing momentum as the major Tamil party, Tamil National Alliance (TNA), is refusing to participate in the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) proposed by the Government to devolve power.
