Expressing concern is not enough, countries should intervene - CJPCD Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 01 February 2009, 14:53 GMT]
“Mere expression of concern by the countries of the world is not enough; immediate intervention to urge Sri Lanka government to stop its killing and maiming of the innocent Tamils in Vanni is the need of the hour,” the Commission for Justice and Peace of Catholic Diocese (CJPCD) said in its message released at the end of the fifth day hunger strike in protest against the continuing Sri Lanka government’s artillery barrage and aerial strikes on the Tamils in Vanni, sources in Jaffna said.

The hunger strike launched Wednesday by CJPCD was continued in Koiyaaththoadam Chirst Church premises Sunday in Jaffna.

Rt. Rev. Thomas Saundaranayagam, Bishop of Jaffna, priests, nuns and members of various religious and social organizations took part in the hunger strike.

“The 48 hour respite announced by the government has ended as an act of eye-wash while 80 innocent Tamil civilians have been killed and 230 have been injured in the said 48 hours and that too within the government declared ‘safety zone’ in Vanni."

The World Human Rights Watch has warned the International Community that an ethnic cleansing is being staged in Vanni, the message said.
