1815 Agreement Sri Lanka
The agreement was concluded in March 1815, after negotiations between John of Oyly and the nobles of Kandy. The key points of the agreement were: at the time and to my knowledge, never has a powerful and powerful foreign country, invading, signed an agreement with the subjugated state with guarantees and guarantees, including provisions for the continuation of the application of religious and administrative practices and the rescue of public authorities, with guarantees of security of the person and property with civil rights and immunities for heads and other functions of state. Of course, this cannot be characterized as treason. Thereafter there was a period of relative peace and calm during the first three years of British rule (1815-1818). However, indigenous leaders have increasingly witnessed an erosion and a violation of the legally binding conditions set by the Kandyan Convention by the legitimately appointed authority of the British government. The rights, privileges and powers of their respective functions were taken into their own hands and disagreed. D`Oyley had ensured that the chiefs did not oppose the invading British troops who, in the end, only claimed to replace an abominable king. The British, who advanced in a series of columns, met with little opposition and entered Kandy on 10 February 1815, accompanied by John d`Oyly. The Kandyan Convention is a unique document for the national and international community. March 15, 1815 was signed in the kandy palace. It was a document prepared for a colony between the British Empire and the Kingdom of Kandyan. Sir Robert Brownrigg, governor of the British colonies and territories on the island of Ceylon, signed on behalf of the Kingdom of Kandyan, signed on behalf of the Kingdom of Kandyan. It contained 12 clauses including the King of Great Britain, His Majesty George III, with Sovere with the sovereignty of the whole country.
After the capture of the last king of Kandy by the British in 1815, the indigenous nobility of the Kingdom of Kandyan, along with the British colonial government of the time, entered into a solemn convention with the fervent hope and expectation that its conditions would be respected and respected by the rulers of the British Empire. The objective of this international bilateral agreement, as unprecedented as it is, has been launched, which guarantees the people of the subject nation rights, privileges and safeguards, including the preservation of cultural and religious heritage, if its people, a document that was to receive the support of the British Parliament. British agents skilfully investigated the reasons for Kandy`s success in the past and worked to neutralize them methodically. Their strategy was successful and the result was that the second invasion in 1815 was an easy success and Kandy, the last holdout of the Sinhalese, fell without much resistance.
