    The Disaster Management System in Sri Lanka exposed its complete failure to take preventive action when it failed to relocate persons who were housed by a plantation in an erea prone to landslides. The government had been warned that this area was prone to landslides. A warning had been issued in 2005. There was a landslide in 2008 with deaths occurring. A fresh warning had been issued to the government in 2012. YET THE GOVERNMENT DID NOTHING!


    The minister in charge of disaster management HAS NOT BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE!


    The Disaster Management Center HAS NOT BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE!


    It seems that south asians DO NOT BELIEVE IN PREVENTING DISASTERS...even though they think that they are smarter than the rest of the world!
