Half a century of violence against Tamils still continues, says Nadesan

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 18 April 2006, 16:26 GMT]
"What happens in Trincomalee now is only a continuation of the state terrorism that began fifty years ago. Now it has become customary for the law enforcement arms of the Sri Lankan government to openly assist and join the Sinhala nationalist thugs in the violence against Tamils," said Thamileelam Police Chief Mr. B. Nadesan, participating in a ceremony held Sunday 7. a.m to mark the graduation of a new group of police officers, in an undisclosed venue in Vanni, sources from Kilinochchi said.

Thamilarasan, the head of the Police Training College, presided the event which began with the lighting of the common flame by Anton Joseph, Officer-in-charge Madu Police Station and hoisting of Tamil Eelam national flag by Deputy Head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Police, Mathavan.

Following the observation of silent prayers and the taking of oaths the Thamileelam police chief received the guard of honour from the newly trained police officers.

"The law and its enforcement structures were exploited against the Tamils to crush the non-violent struggle of the Tamil leaders in the past. In 1956, when the Tamil leaders staged a non-violent demonstration in front of the Parliament against the Sinhala Only Act, Sinhalese thugs were let loose on them by the State, and the police were ordered not to interfere until the demonstrators were chased away. What happens in Trincomalee now is only a continuation of the State terrorism that began fifty years ago. Now it has become customary for the law enforcement arms of the government to openly assist and join the Sinhala thugs in the violence against Tamils.

"Tamil people have suffered from State terrorism in the form of bombings, shellings, assassinations, abductions and other similar atrocities. You must dedicate yourselves to the people; your thoughts should always be about the betterment of their lives. Only then you can earn their respect and love and only through this service to the people, the Tamileelam police can make its own mark in our history.

"Our leader's vision and guidance have enormously helped us to evolve into an establishment which fulfills the expectations and hopes of our people. He continues to advise and guide in achieving an exemplary standard.

"Exemplary moral conduct is the very basis on which the Thamileelam police force is built upon. I am certain that our police officers, who are from the people and themselves victims of State terrorism, will function with a clear understanding of our people and righteousness," concluded the Police chief.

The ceremony ended with a cultural show by the newly trained police officers.
