Jaffna posters dissuade paramilitary contact

[TamilNet, Thursday, 21 January 1999, 11:30 GMT]
Posters urging people not to associate with the Tamil paramilitary groups working alongside the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) appeared in many parts of the Vadamaradchi division of Jaffna today. A group calling itself 'Freedom Fighters' put up the posters in the Tamil language which were titled "Go no longer to the traitors of the nation".

The poster said "the treacherous Tamil gangs which grovel at the feet of Sinhala chauvinism have raised their heads again in the Jaffna peninsula with the assistance of the army. These gangs are harassing our people everywhere on the pretext of restoring civil administration."

The posters urged the public to cease assisting or having any relations with these "gangs which are enemies of the nation".

"Justice and Dharma shall be victorious eventually. Prepare yourselves for that day" the poster further said.

Sources in Jaffna said civilians were seen gathered in several parts of Vadamaradchi to peruse these posters. Sri Lanka Army troops removed some of them later in the morning today.
