Journalist Nimalarajan to be remembered
[TamilNet, Monday, 18 October 2004, 16:27 GMT]
Jaffna Nimalarajan Foundation (JNF) is to hold a one- hour demonstration in
Jaffna bus stand Tuesday in connection with the fourth death anniversary of
Jaffna journalist Mylvaganam Nimalarajan who was shot dead on October 19th,
2000 in his house allegedly by members of a Tamil para military group which
had close connection with the Sri Lanka government then in power. The demonstration
is to commence from noon, media sources said.
Jaffna based journalists who have been working for regional Tamil dailies
and Colombo based media will participate in the demonstration demanding
that the culprits behind this murder brought to book without
delay, media sources said.
The Jaffna magistrate had already taken off Nimalarajan murder case
from the roll due to the failure of Attorney General (AG) filing
indictments against the suspected assassins even after the special police
team which conducted investigation in to the murder had submitted its
report to AG, legal sources said.
The Nimalarajan murder case is likely to be dropped permanently if the AG
fails to file indictments against the suspects who are now enlarged in
bail, legal sources said.
