      Sri Lanka President faces fresh challenge over his mental health

      Dec 10, 2018

      President Maithripala Sirisena Monday faced a new challenge from an unexpected source questioning his mental condition to govern the country as a political crisis triggered by him dragged without any sign of resolution.

      A public interest case was filed by a woman activist identified as Thakshila Jayawardena who argued that “irrational” behavior of the president was due to severe stress of adjusting to an urban life style, depression caused by the recent arrest of his chief of staff while taking a bribe and genetics.

      Attorney Sisira Kumara Siriwardena said he hoped the Court of Appeal will take up the case, although many in the legal fraternity casts doubts if it will be entertained as the president enjoyed immunity.

      “We are asking that he be subjected to an examination by a board of doctors at the Angoda mental hospital to establish if he is of sound mind,” Siriwardena told reporters outside the court.

      He said Sirisena’s daughter’s book entitled “Janapathy Thaatha – President father“ spoke of mental illness running in the family. That could be the explanation for some of his controversial actions and statements recently, the lawyer argued.

      He said the case was filed as a public interest litigation and they expected to be heard by the courts which are currently hearing several other action against Sirisena’s recent decisions to sack parliament as well as his prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

      A decision on the legality of Sirisena dissolving parliament on November 9 is due to be delivered later this week. The hearing in that case ended on Friday and a decision was expected on Monday, but lawyers said they now expect a judgment anytime between Wednesday and Friday.

      Another decision on the legal authority of Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cabinet to hold office is also expected later this week.

          Sri Lanka defends feel-the-pain carbon tax as eco-tax trigger riots in France

          Jan 10, 2019

          Sri Lanka is to go ahead with a carbon tax, which is being charged on a peculiarly unjust basis targeting older, poorer vehicle owners while allowing richer arguably high use owners of new cars get off lightly.

          France has been shaken by violent protests against an eco-tax by yellow-vest wearing motorists, who say they regretted voting for President Emmanuel Macron, and have called for his resignation.

          Citizens of France came out against eco-taxes as they are viciously unjust, goes against principles of good governance have nothing to do with raising revenue, which should be the only purpose of taxation but are insitead designed to hurt.

          Eco-taxes were promoted by European green parties and illiberal interventionists going against time honoured principles of taxation and of liberalism of causing least hurt and are designed to make payers 'feel the pain'.

          In good governance taxes are expected to be levied as a bee takes honey from a flower, making payers hardly feel the burden. Originally from South Asia, the principle was adopted by Western liberals but has been violated by interventionists.

          Critics who attempt to psycho-analyse promoters of European echo taxes have charged that they are acting in the same way as religious zealots of Middle Ages who wanted to make 'carbon' sinners pay 'penance' to the church of environmentalism with Mother Earth as the deity.

          Promoters of 'sin' taxes whether alcohol or sugar, quell opposition by making the payer feel guilty. However French yellow vest protestors refused to submit meekly to interventionism.

          Economic analysts say Sri Lanka's eco-taxes should be a case study for students of public finance on how not to do fiscal policy.

          Sri Lanka's eco-taxes are peculiarly painful as they have to be paid just when people have to fork out money for revenue licenses as well as an eco test and sometimes also insurance, making them 'feel it'.

          The taxes make no distinction between diesel and petrol, despite diesel containing higher volumes of carbon and other impurities, emits more polluting by products, some of which could be carcinogenic.

          The carbon-tax opposed by yellow-vest protests in France at least makes a distinction petrol and diesel.

          In another peculiar basis, cars newer than 5 years are charged 50 cents per cubic centimetre of engine capacity while cars between 5 and 10 years are charged twice that. Cars over 10 years are charged three times.

          But all cars - except classic cars - have to pass an emission test, making a mockery of the basis. Cars that do not pass the test have to tune the engine or repair it.

          Older cars are generally owned by poorer and older people, who hardly use it, making Sri Lanka's carbon tax peculiarly iniquitous. Many retirees keep an older car for weekend shopping or to go the doctor.

          Meanwhile hybrid cars are charged only 25 cents a cubic metre if they are less than 5 years old.

          Arguably new cars are bought by richer people. Arguably they would go around more. Again no distinction is made between petrol and diesel, making a mockery of the 'carbon tax' claim.

          In another laughable basis, electric cars have been made exempt, though about half or more of Sri Lanka's electricity is made out of coal and furnace oil, both of which have high carbon contents.

          The only distinction made is on engine capacity.

          The state could collect the same volume of tax by charging about a few cents per litre of fuel, which will would be completely fair as high users will end up paying more and it will also be spread out over the period of salary or pension.

          But critics say such a tax will not satisfy architects of eco-taxes who want payers to 'feel the pain'.

          Meanwhile the taxes were passed by legislators in parliament who get tax free cars, while ordinary citizens are forced to pay rates of over 200 percent. The tax collecting state workers also get tax slashed cars.

            For last 70 years politicians/media and clergy made Sri lanlan people slaves and robbed their hard earned money in every possible way.
            Last 51 days of political crisis showed how deep this politicians can go to get back power to robbed citizens in this country.
            When you pushed innocent people to the wall there will be a reaction and it is gonna be a history changing one I guess this time.

            Time has come to break the shackles and free your self from the slavery we went through for last 70 years...........
            Do we really need to waste our hard earned money for these 9099 politicians any more or get back all the money they robbed form us for last 70 years and make a better future for the coming generation ?????????
