International community failed to stop genocidal acts in Sri Lanka, from the time this government came to power in 2006. This encouraged the regime to move towards totalitarianism in Sri Lanka after the end of military conflict in May 2009. First step to totalitarianism was to amend the constitution to accommodate “Presidency for life”, the same path followed by other failed dictators; ignored democratic principles, suppressed media freedom and finally dispensed with the independence of judiciary by sacking the Chief Justice for opposing the government proposed bill to give total power to one, in contravention of the current constitution. The pursuit of totalitarian regime in Sri Lanka is opposed by both Sinhala and Tamil Nations; only International community can stop the regime with overwhelming military and financial power going down this path. Immediate action by International community is needed.
