State terrorism rising in NorthEast, say Tamil MPs

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 January 2006, 15:31 GMT]
"Violence and terror unleashed by the State armed forces is on the increase in the North East province. Fifty Tamil civilians have been abducted in the Jaffna district within few months. From December 1 to January 12 the State armed forces and para military groups in Jaffna have killed thirty-one Tamil civilians. Forty-two Tamils have been killed in other districts of the province," said leaders of Tamil political parties addressing a press briefing after their protest in parliament Tuesday morning.

"We will be launching protest campaigns in and outside of the parliament until the terror activities of the State armed forces are stopped," declared Tamil parliamentarians, sources said.

Mr.R.Sampanthan, leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentary group presided over the press briefing which was attended by Mr.R.Yogarajan, Vice President of the Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC), Mr.Muthu Sivalingam, former minister and a senior member of the CWC, Mr.P.Chandrasekaran, parliamentarian and Upcountry Peoples' Front (UPF) President, Mr.Mano Ganeshan, parliamentarian and the President of Western Province Peoples Front (WPPF), sources said.

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) is inciting Tamil people to violence. SLA is using the Emergency regulations to arrest Tamil civilians without any reason even while the ceasefire agreement is in force. Para military groups in collaboration with the SLA are responsible for the abduction of several Tamil civilians. Tamil people are arrested in Colombo and other areas in the south during nights and taken to police station for interrogation.

The Sri Lanka President and his government have failed to stop these atrocities committed on Tamil civilians. Tamil people cannot expect any justice from the President who is having anti Tamil political parties, Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) and Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) for his political survival, said Tamil parliamentarians.

Peace process has come to a standstill. Tamil people have lost confidence in the peace process due to atrocities by SLA on Tamil people, said Tamil parliamentarians and other party leaders at the press briefing.
