TNA protests against de-merger verdict, parliament adjourned

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 October 2006, 05:57 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians Tuesday morning disrupted the proceedings of the Sri Lankan parliament, protesting against the Sri Lankan Supreme Court ruling that the merged NorthEastern Province was "illegal." The Tamil MPs protested in the assembly against the Sri Lankan judiciary which they charged was being used to nullify any arrangement towards a peaceful resolution of the national problem. Sri Lanka has rebuffed the International Community by Supreme Court ruling resulting in a scuttled P-TOMS, and now the 18-year-old merger of North East has been ruled "illegal" rejecting the Indian arrangement, the MPs charged.

Sri Lankan judiciary has always acted against the Tamil interests since the island received independence from the European colonial powers, the MPs charged.

The protesting parliamentarians called on India and the International Community to voice for Tamil rights. Sri Lanka's Parliament was adjourned till Wednesday following the protest.
