NOMINATING-OFFICER: Joe Novak
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Mr. Amitirigala is well versed in the Sri Lankan legal
system and is a lecturer on the topic at the Sri Lanka
Law College. In his role as a lecturer he will have an
influence on Sri Lanka's future attorneys and judges.
In his current position he is proving himself a
knowledgeable contact on what is happening in Sri
Lanka's judicial circles. On a personal level he is
trying to expand his knowledge on human rights issues
as they relate to the law. An IV grant would not only
strengthen Mission's ties to this contact, but it would
also give the USG the opportunity to help direct his
interests into the human rights field.
