Separate Court In Port City: Chinese Official’s Remark Creates Controversy

A fresh controversy has arisen over the Chinese company’s position on the legal and arbitration system of the Chinese funded Colombo Port City, Colombo Telegraph reliably learns.

Liang Thow Ming, chief sales and marketing officer of Sri Lanka’s CHEC Port City Colombo (Pvt) Ltd, which is handling the project said a separate court and arbitration centre would be set up to administer the affairs within the city.

“A separate court, separate arbitration centres, a city that is run under a different set of rules — the whole port city playing a different game from the rest of Colombo” Ming said, in an interview with ‘The Hindu‘ recently.

This comment has stirred up a hornets’ nest with several ministers and MPs raising the issue with Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade Malik Samarawickrama.

They had stated that this would be an infringement on the country’s sovereignty.

The Indian diplomats in Colombo too have warned that a separate court and arbitration centres relating to the Chinese funded Port City would create diplomatic ripples in the region.

Commenting on the matter, a top spokesman from the government said nothing has been finalized so far.

“I don’t know why the official of the Chinese company made that remark. We are yet to finalise these matters. No decision has been made so far to set up a separate court in the Port City. The government will have to discuss the matter with a number of stakeholders. So, I can only say, no decision has so far been made with regard to the matter,” he explained.

    so it is on the agenda!

    The government will have to discuss the matter with a number of stakeholders.

    Are the citizens of Sri Lanka one of the stake holders
    will there be a referendum?

    What he said is true. Port city agreement was signed by Mahinda Rajapakse which is an international agreement between China and Srilanka, which can only be abrogated with the consent of both parties. According to this agreement 20 hectares was sold outright in perpetuity to China, 170 hectares were given on a 99% lease to China and only 230 hectares will be in the possession of Srilanka. In the first two areas, when Srilanka cannot fly the national flag, and President needing permission to enter it, how can you expect it to be under jurisdiction of Srilanka courts. Incidentally the first two areas abut the sea while the area allocated to Srilanka is inland. Which means Srilanka cannot land its boats on those coast line and Srilankan planes cannot over fly those areas without the permission of China. This is the reality about sovereignty of Srilanka.

      Infact when you think about it, it is not a bad idea.

      Just imagine:

      1 flexible Labour laws
      2 simolified tax return to be filed online by all living and doing business in the port city above 18 years of age
      3 company registration within 24 hours
      4 efficient foreign exchange controls
      5 international hospital with no GMOA influence
      6 top tier fee levying university ranked within top 100 in the world
      7 efficient garbage collection and charge the occupants on weight and contents disposed
      8 easier land registration and all documts available on the web.
      9 no miscellaneous taxes but only VAT and income tax
      10 international arbitration Centre with recourse to mainland Supreme Court and speedy decisions
      11 pay market rates for all services obtained from central government
      12 no political influence in managing the city.
      13 emergency services are not crippled by strikes

      Wow what a difference it would make to all living and doing business at the port city!! Dream come true!!

      Hopefully others living and doing business outside the port city would demand same facilities from the govt in time to come.

        To put it bluntly it’s another Gibraltar nothing more nothing less. The vast majority of the workers are Spaniards but the sea surrounding it it unaccessible to the Spanish. it would be an offshore account facility for Sri Lankan tax dodging companies but not individuals. That’s how Britain works and the Spanish people plus Spanish government are not happy.

      This is just fear mongering.
      Leasing for 99 years is common practice, you can find many investment properties on this basis in Sri Lanka. Law of the country applies to all the land sea and air space under it’s jurisdiction. And the government can enforce it’s writ on any leased land or outright purchased land. It’s the same for any country. Only in the premises of an embassy of a foreign country, the law of that country applies.

      We had one painful experience in our history of foreign power directly violated our Sovereignty, it’s the ‘parippu invasion’ of India.

    Could we also have separate Chinese police force, army, navy, air force, airports, central bank, stock market, legislature, elections, land power, national anthem, Chief Executive of Port City (possible candidate – SJ/Sekera) ……………. change of name to Colombo Port City Autonomous Region, a casino city with loads of prostitutes, ……………

      This news is nothing new. Ravi K. promised a separate court and rules months ago. The idea is to have a court that works and can be trusted instead of the “legal system” that the rest of the country enjoys. No serious investment will be accomplished without law and order. I believe that the financial center in Dubai has a similar system with UK law.

      There is a reason off shore is called off shore.

      Now that I think about it a separate police force is needed also. Thanks for the idea.

        “The idea is to have a court that works and can be trusted instead of the “legal system” that the rest of the country enjoys.”

        What is the guarantee that the separate court would “work”? If Sri Lankans are going to be appointed the arbitrators/judges, then as tradition demands they work for the highest bidder, and they should not act in the interest of justice.

        “There is a reason off shore is called off shore.”

        For the above purpose let us bring in off shore judges from China, Pakistan, Hindia, Nigeria, ……., ……..

        “Now that I think about it a separate police force is needed also. Thanks for the idea.”

        If that is acceptable, why not declare the entire North East an Off Shore entity and keep the Tamils under further voluntary control?

        If for some economic or financial reason (loans) the country’s political structure, sovereignty and laws can be changed why not for the sake of peace, development and progress change the structure of the state completely from a pathetic Unitary to a democratic Federal?

        Remember Hindians invaded the country in 1987 to amend the constitution now it seems Chinese turn to divide the country into offshore separate state and the rest.

        Anyhow the country is destined to be divided between the have and the have not.

        Soon Pakistan in joint venture with Saudi may love a piece from Kattankudy, Israel wouldn’t mind sharing Kattankudy with the rest, Russians have been looking for a blue water harbour for many years, ….

            The chinese would park their subs there for security of indian ocean. China has 70 nuclear subs with helicopters etc. India has around 15 small subs but incapable of guarding Indian Ocean and Diego Garcia has only 7 Persons Military persons plus Lankan and filipino orderlies.

            India lost the plot to Gota now greedy ranil and mega rich of lanka are loving port city.

          Give Kattankudy to Pakistan, Beruwala to Saudi Arabia, Negombo to Italy, Bambalapitiya to Netherlands including DBU headquarters and BRC cricket ground, Nuwara Eliya to England, Slave Island to Malaysia including Padang, but do not give anything to Tamils who as Dravidian descendants are the legitimate owners of Srilanka.

            Dr. Gnana,

            The Saudis would not want Beruwela. May be Kattankudy would be better. It is best to give Colombo to Pakistan because many containers of HIGH VALUE cargo are bound for Colombo port and clearing them might be difficult if they have to travel all the way from Kattankudy.

            Secondly, the Tamilians also should get only a certain location. So it is best you stick to Mannar, due to the easy access to your homeland.

            Finally, the Sinhalese also need to be restricted to a pocket, right? So Kandy seems like a good location. Cannot give the entire Central Province to them, as you have already ear marked Nuwara Eliya to be given to England. So lets think of an area between Kandy and Dambulla for the Sinhalese.

            Now, this is a fair deal. You cannot as a Tamil claim the entire nation, right?

              I forgot to add the following :
              give Puttalam to Africans (their descendants are living there)
              give Batticaloa to Portuguese (their descendants are living there)
              give Jawatte to Parsees (They have a cemetery there)
              give Matara to Durawe (you cannot win Matara seat if not Durawe)
              give Balapitiya – Ratgama area to Salagama
              give Kochchikade to Malayalees
              Your suggestion to give Mannar to Tamils, may be appropriate as Mannar or known as Mantai/Mathottam was the first port city and where civilisation in Srilanka began.

            South – Rohana Wijeweera of Matara village wanted to capture the city of Colombo.
            North the Catholic imported from Malaysia SJV Chelvanayagam wanted to have the North and east like any other fascist.

            Now everyone there is on the road to slavery with China stepping in as the main stakeholder. Neither the Americans or Indians have the wherewithal to bring peace there and the Indians would not trust the jaffna tamils as much as they wouldn’t trust the muslims and sinhalese.
            So better you jump in the sea because parliament at Kotte would become a warehouse within 50 years.

          After talking with my private banker in Dubai I can share some information with you. The Dubai Financial Center has foreign judges from HK, SG and UK. The courts and the law are different from the rest of the country. In case of doubts they will use English law.

          Margret Thatcher did not retire gracefully. She was ousted by her own party. That’s parliamentary democracy. The ‘iron lady’ title is pure hype because of her unyielding stance in EU negotiations, keeping her MPs under a tight reign & going to war with Argentina but on whole, she has not made any significant contribution during her period in office.

          Some politicians believe in themselves to be the best for the country & want to hang on to power as long as possible but there are exceptions, like Cameron, who accepted Brexit & left gracefully, taking the responsibility for failing to convince the British public to remain in the EU, even though constitutionally, he could have continued as PM until his period was over. Of course in SL, it is the norm for defeated politicians to crawl back even after being kicked out of Parliament by the voters.

    WHEN YOU SELL YOUR LAND TO A FORIGN GOVERNMENT HOW CAN YOU CLAIM SOVEREIGNTY IN THAT PIECE OF LAND. THERE ARE SEVERAL EXAMPLES OF THIS KIND OF SOVEREIGNTY PROBLEMS.

We do not have proper heads to handle this situation. Seek help and co-operation from experts from SAARC countries and use the wisdom to overcome this situation for the mutual benefits of the country. Sovereignty of the country cannot be bargained. Handle it carefully. May God guide our leaders.

    When the Europeans conquered China after the Opium War, they had separate courts which dealt with foreign business. Now that China has taken over parts of Sri Lanka, it is putting its experience to use.

    That is the nationalist way of looking at the situation. But, the rationalist view is that if you want a modern business city, you need a new system of law. Not have corrupt Sri Lankan judges but independent international class judges and arbitrators that modern international business people can accept.

    Same argument as in the case of war criminals.

    But, it is not something that the Mahavamsa nationalists are going to accept in either case.

    There is nothing wrong in setting up new laws for this area provided the adjudication is done by the legal structure which now exists in Sri Lanka. It does not mean that a separate judiciary is to be set up. There is no point in raising alarm, only those who do not understand what is proposed are creating unnecessary issues. This shows how bankrupt these politicians are.

Then “Meditation” will be outlawed and “Kun Fu” or some other type of Martial Art will be introduced. The “Uniform” will be “White” with a “Belt” (color depending on the mastery of the “Art” (this definition of the “Art” must be localized and must be awarded to the politicians)

      I forgot one more enterprise, health tourism.

      Chinese health entrepreneurs can have their own kidney transplant clinics where fresh kidneys are flown into port city directly from kidney farms run by prison officials and local party officials. They can harvest kidneys to order.

      Conveniently they have a large prison population to chose from and active capital punishment add extra value to kidney business.

      A word of warning to Indian kidney merchants, the prices may come crashing. Good time for you to exit.

    Stop this Commission talk. We have had to listen to an overdose of Rajapakshe corruption & commissions over the last two years.
    Its being a common medicinal oil for all ailments.

    Having a seperate court is no exception.
    What SL need to look at is how much income that would be generated from there.

    This is turned into an issue because the Yahapalanaya is lying between their teeth on Harvard advice and not being transparent.
    So the Chinese decided to be transparent about it.

    Another feather for the yahapalanaya for hiding from the people.
    Now the May Day speakers will have to re-arrange their speeches again to accomodate this Chinese exposure.

      Could you publish all the records that related to the port city from conception of the idea to date.

      Is the file missing?

    I am no friend of China. But, I think the commentators may go a bit easy on this one.

    Every city, like the Port City- an MR creation- involves loss of sovereignty with the purpose that it will be a place of international business. So, it will have its own courts and arbitration. The models would be Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore. Dubai has a commercial court manned largely by English judges so that commercial people would come to do business in Dubai knowing that disputes will be settled by neutral courts applying a neutral law.

    So, if you design a system like the Port City, which is external in a sense to Sri Lanka, then, you must think of it having an external system of courts. The idea is that the Port City will drive the economy of the country.

    Whether this is a sound system or not is debatable. But, the time for debate is passed. The decision has been made. So, what the Chinese official said is sensible in the context. Please remove from the equation the fact that it is a chines official and that it is a chinese project.

    I am sorry to disagree with the Native Veddah and other friends. I would agree with them that the project is not a good one. But, the consequences of the decision such as that it would result in a foreign enclave is predictable.

        China is the party, now, insisting on separate legal system for Colombo Pong Cing. If Old King had been doing that, I can assume that he was not satisfied with Seychelles or something, so looking for some legal curtain that would not be obligated by International laws. But China’s purpose is not corruption alone. It had landed 4 submarines even before it got a grip on the land. Further, if the sole purpose of this deal is only to indulge corruption then why China is asking for Hangbangtota and Maduru Oya.

        I don’t predict excessive immoral things to go through Colombo Pong Cing. I see how China is running Hong Kong, though it is its own land and China may be not willing to destroy it’s, but Pong Cing is not China’s land, so may not care much.

        Even without Pong Cing China is able to exert pressure on many things. When China bring its machineries and install there, then it will administer many thing in Lankawe.

        Indian government has informed that PM Modi will not sign any new pacts this month. It needs not to affect the path Lankawe taking. Ex-PM Manmohan Singh refused to talk to Old King. He used that interval to sign the deed for Pong Cing. For the last 30 years, Ranil had proved that what an obstinate person he is. Mr. Modi’s Uudal(A friendly angry) will not change Ranil’s path.

        Bringing back Ponni as the General is telling that the government is hell on not to prosecute the Old Royal Criminals. Ponni is an important witness (partner) in many murders and war crime. Until he is cleared from them (including Lasantha’s murder) a proper government will not allow him to stand on election. One government had accused him of corruptions. No appeals were followed to clean his guilt by courts. He got out by a prudential pardon by American pressure. (But America is reluctant to issue him Visa.) This makes the country’s Legal System as the Thirukkai Waal the political gang leaders carry in their shoulder bag with them, where they go. Clique incident or Central Bank looting didn’t go to court. Nobody wants to come with clean hands. Nobody likes to face UNHRC. This is guaranteeing that China is/will be the refugee camp for the SLFP, UNP criminals now and for the future to come. That tells, for the future to come, China will remain as the “Appe Aanduwa” on the soil of Ceylon, not just for Colombo Pong Cing.

    It was like this – an Imaginary situation- Rapist army had entered in into a hut where a woman was cooking alone. Humiliated her, tortured her, raped…did all the havoc and went. The kids went out to play came back shouting “Mama Hungry”. She cannot talk to them, she cannot explain to them, they cannot understand if had told them. She silently scrapped off what was left in the pot after storm and fed the hungry kids. January 2015 election came. The result was Husband had filed for divorce and had taken her kids away from her. The man who sat with her & ate Aappa is no longer in her hut.

    The proud computers of Defense Media Central, which victoriously depicted degrading pictures of Manmohan Singh with Jayalalitha died all of a sudden. The pride of winning the LTTE was evaporating in millisecond. How Leader Pirapaharan would have feeling when his dream army was losing, it was worse than that in Temple Tree House. When Achilles fell down, Hector rose up. End was China walked away with the Colombo Pong Cing. But Modayas enjoyed the Biryani and Arrack on the borrowed and then stolen money.

    The Modayas had no idea of how much of pain Old King had taken before relenting to China’s demand to have that Colombo Pong Cing. Ranil’s game of throwing rotten egg to soldiers in the heavy tank during the September, 2015 election did not go well either. Yahapalanaya saw China is not Ex-Secretary John Kerry.

    Ranil was out in Vietnam seeking help to balance the dragon. Meettodamulla Garbage Mountain slide. Vietnam agreed for further meeting. Ranil cut it short and came back. Local papers said the death was zero casualties. Then 17……then 20…Did Ranil came back from Vietnam only for these numbers? That kind of compassionate politician is Ranil? But the foreign Media reported it was 100. The unofficial said 200.

When it was released that China had applied to 1 million visas, it stunned us. Hangbangtota had allocated only villages measured four or five. One million is half of Tamils or Muslims population of Ceylon! How can one pact half of Muslims or Tamils in small four or five villages. Then Maduru Oya story came out. That was said about 50,000 acres. It’s about 3-4 times larger than Hangbangtota. Still it does not make sense.

    Ponni has become the General again. The target cannot be the tigers; it cannot be the lions; it cannot be the afghan donkeys or even American eagle; only thing it could be is the Chinese dragon. In August, Yahapalanaya has to go on the operation table for a Heart by Pass. We don’t know if it will be able to get off from the table and walk back home. We do not know the number games either. We do not have the numbers though do know Thero is doing his cover up spinning story on the other side. We are not sure of any of these things. But we are sure of one thing; Best is yet to come. See it on the white screen when it becomes real.

    This is what MR was planning to do…
    By holding elections 2 years ahead of his term ..
    He lost…..now the present jokers who came to power promising to halt Project
    is now willing to go the extra mile in allowing to China to set up separate jurisdiction
    Which means …it is a seperate Country….
    Govt resisted the demand for a separate Tamil state by mobilizing the Sinhala Soldiers ..
    we saw the 30 year bloodshed in the country …
    NOW THE GOVT IS CREATING A SEOERATE STATE WITH 500 ACRES ..Chinese colony..
    This action of the Govt is certainly will be resisted…and do not be surprised of a military uprising
    If that happens we are heading for another bloodshed….
    The reason why Rtd SF is been requested to head the 3 forces ….for any eventualities..

    The Govt of Sri Lanka headed by the Political Jokers will be over in 2020 …after 72 years
    In 1818 the British called the freedom fighters Rebels and killed the all….
    exactly after 200 years of that the very Sinhalese will do what British did then….
    Rebels….they disrupt the Govt policies plans….those who rise against should be killed…

    Ayioo SIRI LANKA….

    Well done Sri Lanka. Not one but two Chinese outposts in the Island. One glaring, in the heart of Colombo. Bloody smart we are.

    We may have vanquished the Tigers, not the spirit of the Tamils and lost our country to the Chinese.

    History books will write, those who split the country into two were the Rajapaksas,one for the Chinese and one for everyone else. And as Tisaranee Gunasekera had opined previously, it will go three way. India with the North and East, Sinhalese South with the Chinese and Kandyans caught up in the middle between warring factions.

    Congratulations, well done to my motherland.

      “And as Tisaranee Gunasekera had opined previously, it will go three way. India with the North and East, Sinhalese South with the Chinese and Kandyans caught up in the middle between warring factions.”

      How about giving 10 square miles of secluded land to the stupid Sinhala/Buddhist ghetto builders?

    When China disagree with Taiwan and Dalai Lama, Colombo is neither of them.

    What a load old Kolaveri!

    We have proved unable to run our own legal system. We fight against letting foreign judges show us how. Now, our Chinese friends will not need our permission. By all accounts THEY will have their legal system….
