Ice cream served in dansalas’ contained DCD Contaminated Milk

nation.lk ::: - ‘DCD in ice cream served in dansalas’: "Minister of Technology and Research, Patali Champika Ranawaka yesterday (July 19) alleged ice cream made from milk contaminated by the agrochemical Dicyandiamide (DCD) had been distributed to unsuspecting members of the public via ‘dansals’ during last month’s Poson season. Minister Ranawaka made the sensational allegation speaking to journalists at the end of the ‘Nutrition Walk’ organized as part of activities for ‘Nutrition Month’.

He noted that last year, the Industrial Technology Institute (ITI) had found that 20 percent of imported milk powder stocks from New Zealand tested positive for DCD. While milk powder importers claimed the ITI did not possess the necessary technology or capability to test for DCD in milk powder, subsequent tests conducted in New Zealand itself proved that the milk powder stocks contained DCD, he pointed out.   "

nation.lk ::: - Targeting Sri Lanka has gone too far – Subramanian Swamy

nation.lk ::: - Targeting Sri Lanka has gone too far – Subramanian Swamy: "The targeting of Sri Lanka over human rights issues has gone too far and has to stop, Chairman of the BJP Committee on Strategic Action and Former Union Minister of the Government of India Dr. Subramanian Swamy said a short while ago. Furthermore, he said that India will give Sri Lanka much more support than before at the United Nations Human Rights Council. He made these remarks at a panel discussion on the topic of “India under Modi: Relevance for the Region and the World” organized by the Bandaranaike Center for International Studies and held at the BMICH.

Speaking further, Dr. Swamy stated that human rights have been used selectively by sections of the international community.  He inquired what the Americans would say about the atomic bombs on Japan and what the British would say to the Dresden bombing, where a city with no military value was almost totally destroyed in a single night of bombing. What the West would say was that those were collateral damage but this excuse applies to them only, he observed."

As a friend would urge Sri Lanka to address certain issues of the 13th Amendment, which he said, remain “unnecessarily” unresolved. : Dr Swamy

India to be more supportive of Sri Lanka at UN: Swamy - The Hindu: "“We are very proud of your president for decisively finishing a sinister terror organisation that was a threat to our country too. Let no activity in the international arena subtract from them…sometimes I wonder is these HR issues contrived to belittle the importance of this decisive victory,” Dr. Swamy said, adding “no country has had a clear success in eliminating terrorism the way your country did.”

Referring to the meeting Dr. Swamy and his team had with President Mahinda Rajapaksa earlier on Monday, he said, “We said let us delink Indo-Lanka relations from Tamil Nadu and problems of the Tamils.” However, Mr. Swamy was quick to add that as a friend he would urge Sri Lanka to address certain issues of the 13th Amendment, which he said, remain “unnecessarily” unresolved. “If our friendship and interaction develops sufficiently, we will give you ideas on what could be done.”"

TNA Realise mistakes

Sri Lankan Tamil Party Calls for Formation of Secular National Front - The New Indian Express: " A Sri Lankan Tamil party on Sunday called for the formation of a new secular national political front with participation from majority Sinhalas and minority Muslims to find a credible solution to problems of the Tamil people.

The move came during the convention of the Eelam  People's Revolution Liberation Front (EPRLF), a constituent party of the Tamil National Alliance, in Jaffna.

TNA sources said its leader R Sampanthan told the  convention that neither the Tamil people nor the Tamil politicians are demanding a separate Tamil state.

It is the wish of all Tamils that a lasting political solution be given to address the grievances of Tamil people in the north and east.

Suresh Premachandran, a TNA senior and the leader of  the EPRLF said that no Tamil party alone could achieve a solution. Trying to seek international help was not the answer."

Dutch cyclist was due to fly on MH17 and MH370 but changed plans both times, says his luck was 'inconceivable' - Telegraph

Dutch cyclist was due to fly on MH17 and MH370 but changed plans both times, says his luck was 'inconceivable' - Telegraph: "A Dutch man skirted death on both recent doomed Malaysia Airlines flights after booking tickets on MH17 and MH370 but changing plans at the last minute.
Maarten De Jonge, 29, a cyclist who rides with Malaysia’s Terengganu Cycling Team, switched from MH370 in March to avoid a lengthy stopover and switched from MH17 last week to take a later flight and save money.
“It’s inconceivable,” he told Dutch public broadcaster RTV Oost. “I am very sorry for the passengers and their families, yet I am very pleased I’m unharmed.”"

Malaysia Airlines plane crashes on Ukraine-Russia border - live - Telegraph: "The apparent crash of this Malaysia airlines jet already has people thinking of Korean Airlines Flight 007, which was shot down by the Soviet Union in 1983. All 269 passengers were killed, including an American congressman, when the flight was shot down by a Russian fighter jet after flying into Soviet airspace.
The Kremlin initially denied having anything to do with the incident but later admitted to its role, saying the passenger jet was on an American spying mission.

Sri Lanka avoid the Sri Lanka treatment | Cricket News | Sri Lanka v South Africa | ESPN Cricinfo

Sri Lanka avoid the Sri Lanka treatment | Cricket News | Sri Lanka v South Africa | ESPN Cricinfo: "All through the noughties, teams touring Sri Lanka all had the same basic experience. The team would arrive on the island and travel to a five-star hotel overlooking some sun-spangled curve of sand, which, over the next couple of days, they might admire with a fruit drink in hand and a sea-breeze in their hair.

They might even arrive on the first Test match day with a stomach full of string hoppers and coconut sambol, or fresh tropical fruit and muesli - depending on what the team nutritionist was like. But that is where the holiday would end. Having sunned and served the visitors, Sri Lanka would set about smearing them onto the turf."

Sri Lanka : India against sending an UN investigation team to Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka : India against sending an UN investigation team to Sri Lanka: ""We feel that international bodies need to address human rights through a cooperative framework, not a punitive approach," he said reiterating India's stance.

'There is no change in our position on what we stand for in terms of our approach to human rights issues in various countries and specifically relating to Sri Lanka, as has been articulated previously at the appropriate forum in March," the Spokesperson reiterated.

The two ministers have discussed measures Sri Lanka is taking in terms of initiatives relating to accountability and reconciliation on the island."
