Port City Suspended – Environmentalists Call For It To Be Completely Halted

While environmentalists called upon the government to issues orders to halt the continuation of the Chinese funded Port City Development project, cabinet approval has been granted last night to suspend its constructions.

Ranil Wickremesinghe

Ranil Wickremesinghe

The decision had been made yesterday following a conclusion made by a committee that was headed by PM Ranil Wickremesinghe, that due procedures have not been followed with concern to the project including the procurement process, its environmental impact study etc.

Although during the campaign period itself, the PM stated that the project would not be allowed to continue, doubts were raised concerning his statements since Cabinet Spokesman Minister Rajitha Senaratne said otherwise.

Meanwhile environmentalists and civil society organisations have urged the government to ensure the constructions of the Port City development project to discontinue the project owing to the following reasons:

  • In handing over the project and its constructions, the regulations and legal framework governing the project had been violated
  • Has resulted in a deterioration of internal natural resources of the country as well as the coastal line
  • Inconveniences and disruptions caused to the local fishing communities

The Port City development project was designed to spread across a total of 575 acres and a total of 420 acres off it was to be for sale and the rest was to be utilized for public amenities development. Off the land allocated to be for sale, some 266 acres was reserved for the Chinese.

This project was first planned in 1998 as part of the Colombo Metropolitan Regional Structure Plan.

Environmentalists claim the environmental evaluation report for the Chinese funded project that was compiled by the Moratuwa University is incomplete and is flawed. They state during first three months alone, fishing equipment worth Rs. 4 million has been destroyed and that the fishermen have been unable to engage in their livelihoods due to a decrease in the fish population.

    Who the hell is going to bear the colossal amounts wasted on this project so far and any damages that may be claimed by Chinese due to the negation of this contract, not to mention the white elephants such as MATTALA AIRPORT,HANBANTOTA PORT and all the other madness of MARA.

    Isn’t there any way we can get these monies back from the Plunderers of the State of the MARA Regime. One bro is comfortably settled in the big apple and supposed to have retired from politics. What a wonderful retirement after bleeding the State to death. What more, the 40 thieves want to bring the AlI BABA back to plunder the state coffers again. Idiocy at it’s height.

    What a staggering figure it is 5.2 Million……… ? High time to come to your senses you …….?

      Dear Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe,

      RE: Port City Suspended – Environmentalists Call For It To Be Completely Halted

      “-In handing over the project and its constructions, the regulations and legal framework governing the project had been violated
      -Has resulted in a deterioration of internal natural resources of the country as well as the coastal line
      -Inconveniences and disruptions caused to the local fishing communities.”

      That is the Correct decision. What is the Value proposition for the Country? Bravo!. Have Guts!

      Salvage whatever, that can be salvaged. The Crooks and Robbers must have made millions on this.

      Thank you, and the committee for taking this correct decision based on facts.

        Amarasiri always hijacking the 1st comment to write his comments (almost 90% of time this is takes place) Is it not this shows the inferiority complex which cries to be the most prominent or most noticed or my comments are more important than others kind of attitude ? why do this Amarasiri write your comments as every one else. Your comment here has no relation to the comment above all what you want is to appear 2nd since you did not get the 1st chance.

          “Amarasiri always hijacking the 1st comment to write his comments (almost 90% of time this is takes place) “

          Wrong!

          Not always. It has to be interesting or very stupid write up just like Mahinda-Pala, Balinda Seneviratna or Dayan Jayatillaka writes. Amarasiri Makes comments only on selected writings. There are a lot of articles where Amarasiri made no comments.

          CAUSE is a reason why something happens. CAUSE is time availability of Amarasiri and the time Articles appear.If thee is good cricket match, Amarasiri will not comment, because he will be watching how 22 grown up stupid men throw, hit and chase a (stupid) battered leather ball.

          EFFECT is what happens as a result.

          Approximately 50% of the time Amarasiri will not write a comment or will write late. With some Articles, Amarasiri has less interest, or has become tired of the subject matter.

          So you can see what others have written, sans Amarasiri more often than not.

          There is no hijacking simply, early bird catches the worm, if the worm is interesting and worth eating.

      So, the other choice is the IMF loans, and our ancient grains getting genetically modified with inborn pesticides and insecticides. Unless US encourages organic farming and that sells big on the global money-markets.

      But from the way China is going, by neglecting and laying to waste her farmland for the big megacity projects, selling GMO-crops will be a huge business for anyone growing them(encouraged by the US)……so all money roads lead to China in the end.

      Port –city, while environmentally degrading, would have at least preserved our ancient grains. Come to think of it, only a small section of the coast would have been effected – fish and all.

      Hambantota Port and Airport still has potential.Both China and SL were backing away aggravating the global status quo (the West) too much (together with India putting in spokes and entices to the West and also China).

          when you visit the island next- you can use Mattala for skying traning. So, you may still be saying that was a great project introduced by your beloved leader who though looted every cent from the poor of the poor in this country.

          And what about that lotus tower that is being built in colombo for yours and others entertainment – does that at all need to us srilanken whose majority folks stay under povert in real day life though MR statistics say something else (mid income earning nation).

      Well said Anzar. Port city development project should continue as SL
      cannot afford to pay back damages in millions of dollars, which will be claimed by the Chinese govt. and contractors for breach of contract and China will not let this matter, off the hook just like that,as some
      people think. We are indebted to China,heavily due to the folly of the previous regime and they will not lie down to accept this insult. The
      contract should be revisited and agreed that the land recovered from the sea should be sold or leased to Sri Lankan entrepreneurs only and this govt. should ensure that no foreign govts.or foreign individuals, own a piece of land from the recovered land, which falls under security
      zone, as they can use it for nefarious activities, which cannot be checked or challenged, which may cause diplomatic frictions.

      The environmentalists did not come out with solid arguments to reject
      the project and it looks like they were forced to make this analysis.
      This project will beautify the City of Colombo and such projects are
      undertaken by other Asian govts, including India as well but with no ties attached.
      The stand taken by the current President to stand neutral or remain non aligned with the other countries should be greatly appreciated as he seems to have foreseen the dangers of being aligned with a parti-
      cular country or countries as we can easily fall a prey to powerful nations if tied up.

    If there was intention to defraud ignoring environmental and other regulations, short or long-term, it is unlikely the Chinese Govt. was be part of it. This can be the work of rogue investors and bad eggs in their State banking system enjoying temporary political patronage. There have been hundreds of scandals like that involving huge Chinese overseas investments – many in the African continent. The shady Chinese big-time investor has a quick eye for corrupt political heads having a strangle-hold in their own countries. The Rajapakses gained global notoriety for this weakness – which is also why young James Packer planned his super Casino complex here. The Rajapakse Brothers cared too hoots if Sri Lanka is a Buddhist country or not so long as they line their pockets. The venal family planned a long stay – going at least to 2 generations to enjoy the loot but the plan went awry. Since January 08 people in affluent Colombo 7 can sleep in peace
    whereas when the Rajapakse princes were around they were only interested in their night races what they assumed was their private fiefdom. They gave two hoots to the feelings of “dispensable” folk.

    This is not to say the Colombo Port extension project was not entirely free of global realpolitik battles. As to the Rajapakses, they could not read global politics beyond their nose and realise the project contained international ramifications. They are now condemned to learn from their sordid history.

    Medamulana was selling our precious land and sea for his own gain and satisfaction , the livelihood of the fishermen or the environment was ignored. Mega Bucks in his and his families own pockets were necessary for him.He never cared about the poor man trying to make a living but building a super super city is more important as long as he got the kick backs. Such cunning family plundered the wealth of the country .He says the Palaces being built in the North and the East were not intended for the use of his greedy family but to be used as for the so called now he says for the international conventions. Who will believe him??
    He jumped at the chance when the 3 Forces were JOBLESS after the war they became useful to build hotels ,Palaces and cultivating exotic plants fruits and vegetables to pass time to earn their living by working on these projects on lands grabbed illegally.. Occupy and building illegally would be against the law.
    Give these unemployed men and women to do something to enrich their lives in return for their bravery. Educate them internally or abroad funded by the government. Not by plundering ordinary man’s land and building Palaces and Hotels and give the names to those buildings and gardens with the names of the criminal family.
    All Are Illegal.

    Frankly speaking, it is impossible now to stop this project after all these drama. It is actually the voter’s fault, gave the garland to monkey’s (MR & co) hand instead of Runil. The damage MR &co caused to the country is many times bigger than winning the war against humanity. Even by winning the war like a thug without adopting any international standards, he caused a huge damage to the country in a long run. As i mentioned earlier , we 3rd world idiots do not have any future planing or forecast – we do things for today. Is any one studied the environmental impact due to the use of all those weapons (chemicals) and destroyed trees during the war. Those days people love to buy srilankan goods but now afraid to buy and look for indian or keniyan goods because of all sorts of chemicals in our soil. Will MR & co compensate to the country for all these loses- Why Mithiri and co did not take any action so far. It least the old JVP who love the country should take action.

    Pay back the Chinese for the defaulted contract with mega cash retrieved from the plunderers first and then scrap the Port project . We would not prosper by selling our land and sea in Colombo. The project belongs to Chinese they will plunder all from our country. We need to think and act intelligently. Chinese are much cleverer than Srilankans.

    This positive and brave act by the new Govt and RW is a step in the right direction.

    Just imagine China holding 263 acres right where it matters, for the arrival of their
    Navy fleet, including submarines without any permission from the Govt. and its
    ramifications. They will as well have legitimate sea lanes in keeping with the land they intended to hold in Sri Lanka? MR was well aware of these but did not care as he was
    the King with Senior SLFP/LSSPers his menial subjects.

      MR was well aware of all the perils that SL will face after the sale of the Port city to the Chinese Mega mega port project. No forward thinking politician would have surrendered to a project like this. The Projects functioning similar to this in other countries have not been kept up to the promises made.
      The greedy king and his followers who made the decision should be ashamed to let this happen and it’s for their own interests and not in the interest of the Nation.

      Why are all still free to roam the streets and drumming for their next act of pilfering.
      Tomorrow will be a day to remember for the modayas.

    Well said every one. It is obvious that the plunderers have deprived many generations of Srilankan livelihood and it is a damage that can be compared to many Tsunamis and earth quakes hitting our tiny island all at once. The damage is done and what’s next?.

    We still see many who fall prey to the broken record terrorists are coming back and the world is going to end for Srilanka. The whole jungle is running and the lion is unable to convince a fair number in the group as what is really happening. We need something done by the enlightened ones to make the others smart. No one wants lectures and lessons. Best way is to structure the messaging with facts, figures using tact and displays.

    Examples of some of the things we can do to enlighten the trapped fellow country men are;

    a) Have a running tally of all the waste happening in Srilankan rupees and translate into number of 4 member households it can feed a day

    b) All standing structures and sites that are still standing should be opened for public viewing for them to see themselves. e.g..: Temple trees, The vacation castle in Jaffna, Port city project etc…

    c) The expenditure related to army business ventures and a comparison of such expenses of a private entity expense of similar size. The revenue generated from such projects including the salaries paid for the army personnel who ran and assisted operations etc

    The last part should address a list of economic revitalization plan to improve the GDP in Srilanka to pay back this loan with a goal to balance the budget every year from a future target date. The revenue needed to achieve balanced budget should become a target revenue to be achieved with the chosen programs

    We can continue this list and we should have a giant screen in a prominent location in major cities of the loss we incurred in all above and the interest we pay every year for the loans we lavishly spent. There should be a snapshot of these details distributed in every village in Srilanka by some voluntary organization who care for the country

    The above is a primitive idea that can be built to evolve with input from all concerned citizens. If needed we should start a fundraising to fund this project. The fund needs to be managed by a reputed trustee or audit firm.

    Can some one enlighten me as to why it took nearly two months merely to suspend the work? Could not it have been done from the very first day after the government swore its ministers into office? Why the controversy was on for sometime and it is natural that all controversial activities should have been suspended until the clearance was given by the new Government?

      “Can some one enlighten me as to why it took nearly two months merely to suspend the work? “

      It is called political latency or bureaucratic latency.

        It is this latency or hidden nature that makes things go beyond transparency to opacity. Had all the controversial projects suspended no sooner the new government came into power, we are definitely closer to the decision as to whether we are continuing with it doing away with it for sound reasons and perhaps abolish the project without paying a single cent as compensation.

        Usually in the parlance of the knowledgable these delays take place generally because there are under the table negotiations and in view of the same it can be misunderstood that such negotiations have failed.

    Any loop hole to cancel the project and avoid paying compensation is welcome. We should leave that to the legal eagles.

    Unfortunatley the construction site is an eye sore. Massive rocks piled in to the sea to recalim the sea besides the Gale Face green is also cut up at the Kingsubry Hotel end opposite the old parliament. The beautiful long stretch of Galle Face green is no more.

    Rajapakse brtohers should account to the country on this. Was there any public hearing? How can they hand over a stratgic land that opens up to the vast sea …to China ?

Even some countries in south america.Sri Lanka even in the land still we have problems dumping waste,sewage without harming the enviorment. And we build this ?

      This man seems to have got blood relations with Rajapkshe clan. Else, noboudy would have gone to defend them right at the moment. Alone the facts that hundreds of state vehicles stay unreturned – even after 50 day is over of the new regime – is pathetic from MR adminsitration. As the current men in action say- with all evidences that some documents have gone missing with MR leaving the office. How come -MR cant bring responses to them but to the build of KKS prez house since it was caught in act. How many billions of the poor man s funds have been abused by the marrauders … this nation shoudl go on protesting asking about their funds… all that can help their benefits then. DAYAn or other buggers who only licked the asses again and again – will do their job for their sakes but right thinking ones would see it, that MR regime was a mistake of lanken politics.

    Kamal ,what is the Problem in Amarasiri starting off with the comments? where is the problem?> he is a well respected writer & it is pleasure to read his comments , he does his home work well ad never bias ,so with Native Veda ,Ben Hurling and lot .

    Unfortunately most lankys either do not care ,or never ever understood the important of conserving our environment, what is matter with the politicians and some nut heads i this Country ?
    we do not need such cities also at the cost of loosig our seas and all our natural resources to build it.

    First and foremast strengthen the hands that feed us our farmers , why should they always have face the suffering? why don’t you bring in large farm owners from India and places alike and merge them with our local farmers and build them up, ? we are land sacred and blessed for agricultural.

    Everyone else just need to halt all their other projects until the farmers are uplifted.

    The government must have a public committee in all future projects in this country , without adopting the low down cheep politics of setting up one community against thee other ,promoting hate and racism ,so while the people are busy killing each other they can rob the country wholesale.

    Hope at-least some of the people who have been dumb enough in the past to swallow all the lies have now awaken up.

    This may be your last chance ever Sri Lankans , make it by uniting or let the country be ruined (God forbid)

    Srinath– put on your thinking cap. The contractor of the port city has been black listed in many parts of the world. The contract was awarded without calling for tenders, 299 acres are reserved for China. All these are illegal so lets not have another white elephant like hambantotta port. or Mattala airport or another Naraocholi power plant not forgetting uma oya the latest fraud.

    Development defenitely we need. But not at unreasonable environmental cost. Western countries, Japan, Singapore, hongkong and countries like them are some of the countries running short of land resources for development purposes and habour citity ect are necessary for them. But already the kind of development taken place in city like Colombo traffic is terrible and we are unable to manage. That is because the activities in Colombo city attracting traffic beyond our capacity to controllable them. Apart from the traffic problem ther is an unbalanced growth among various regions in the country. One should not see Trincomalee as a city of minorities but it should be looked as a convenient port location and the govt. Should develop the hinterlands rather than overloading existing urban areas which we are unable to manage. Think of developing, Galle, Trincomalee, KKS etc. but not the MAHINDA CHINDANAYA – white elephant s such as Hambantota and Mattala projects. Chinese are good in various other things. They can contribute to the Govt. to suppress popular people’s uprise such as TENNEHEIM SQUARE like affairs. Which of course is not needed for the present regime. The needed guys are out of town for the moment.
    So, for heaven sake avoid congestion in Colombo city. Let it remain as a people friendly city. We do not want Casinos as well as economic activities attracting too much traffic as well. Borrowed high tech activities will not match our culture, environment and life styles. They will cost us more and leave the hinterlands in suffering finally the popular slogan of 1970s uprise ‘colombatta KIRI uppitta KEKKIRI’. Will become the cry of the backward areas and end up in unwanted conflicts. Let us think of a friendly nation with appropriate technology and life style. Ha our cities are the need of land hungry societies. Sri Lanka’s are blessed with enough land. Get out of the conventional and the out dated cry of ‘appe ratta – punching ratta’. It is a false idea. We have 65,000 square km of land 105 rivers and only 21million people.
    Not to rush for land thirst strategies as like some dragons who kept the Srilankans under threats of the created enemies like Greese Devils, White Vans, division of the country,, threats of minorities on majority interest, threats ffor Budhism etc. to rule the country for ever. They are with enhanced needs. They want cars in the range of 40 millions each. Not one but four. The want more than 30,000 flower pots in their official residence. They want special aircraft to fly them to some unusual destinations (for most Srilankans) like Swaziland, Myammar, Sudan, Iran, Pakistan, Uganda, Kenya, and similar places.
    So, I strongly believe Sri Lankans are by the graces of the all mighty powers born with all gifts and fortunes.. It must not be disturbed by wrong planning and governance. Let us pray ‘GOD SAVE SRILANKA ‘.

    Just make it Colombo’s latest golf course or allow the hundreds and thousands of our people to use it for recreation. A good dose of fresh air for the people of Colombo would not be out of place, given the amount of foul air they have had to breathe each time a politician opened his mouth.

    People in this city need a rest. So does the city itself.
