Schools from Colombo and Nuwara Eliya, an inland region of the country, have recently sent in their completed registrations, bringing the roster ever closer to completion. SLU met with Sri Lankan Justice C.G. Weeramanthri today and he is now a confirmed speaker for the conference. Justice Weeramanthri is one of the most important legal personnel in the world, and a shining asset to Sri Lanka. He is the former Vice President of the International Court of Justice and he has faithfully advised Sri Lankan judicial matters for many years. Furthermore he is interested in Sri Lanka Unites as a whole and has agreed to discuss his future role in the organization once the conference is over.
In the past week, the SLU team has been receiving an increasing number of calls from the Sri Lankan Diaspora who express interest in Sri Lanka Unites. This result was not expected until after the conference, when the publicity of SLU is expected to rise dramatically. This unexpected encouragement is a boost to the organization’s growing reputation as well as its finances since many calls requested more information on sending funds.
