The Doctrine of Necessity for the state of emergency
In defence of Defence Secretary Dr. Gotabaya
Rajapaksa’s statement that the state of Emergency was a matter for
Sri Lanka to decide depending on the current situation whilst
recovering from the tidal waves of the victory at war. Since 2001
the US has been in a state of emergency due to the September 11
attacks, which has been renewed each year, and according to Congress
and the Supreme Court, the US is in a state of war.
