26 November 2011 - Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga last week delivered a scathing attack on the government’s handling of the former IDPs at a discussion held in the South Asia Policy Research Institute in Colombo. “You may be satisfied with it (reconciliation process), but I am not,” she said responding to Professor Rohan Gunaratna, who was the guest speaker. Prof. Gunaratna earlier in his address outlined the government’s achievements in post war transformation in the spheres of humanitarian assistance, social and economic developments and political engagement. “I don’t know whether it was necessary to keep250,000 civilians in detention for two years?” Kumaratunga quizzed. She recalled that the government leaders at the time justified the move, arguing that it was necessary to identify the terrorist cadres among the civilians.
