TNA MP casts doubt on assassination theory

[TamilNet, Thursday, 18 August 2005, 12:01 GMT]
Mr. Mavai Senathirajah, Jaffna district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian, speaking during the debate on the motion for the extension of the State of Emergency in Sri Lankan parliament on Thursday, said that the killing of Lankan Foreign Minister, Mr. Lakshman Kadirgamar, had taken place at a time when the international community had changed its position in favor of contributing funds direct to the NorthEast. This has created a reasonable suspicion on the theories about the assassination that Colombo wants the International Community to believe, he said.  

The TNA MP said, “This must be the work of a chauvinist element that designed the killing with the motive of blaming the murder on the LTTE and destroying the goodwill of the international community towards the Tamil people.”

Mr. Senathirajah criticized the Sri Lankan government for blaming the LTTE for the assassination before a proper investigation is completed.

Mr. Karu Jayasuriya, Deputy Leader of the main opposition United National Party (UNP) and several other parliamentarians also spoke.
