Colombo conducts ‘fake’ conference in Ki’linochchi

[TamilNet, Monday, 24 May 2010, 19:27 GMT]
Northern government department and corporation key officials urgently directed by their superiors to attend a conference Monday in Ki’linochchi in Vanni to discuss resettlement of people uprooted due to war in North were disillusioned to find that the conference failed to address the issues meant, participants in the conference said. The conference, attended by several key ministers including Wimal Weeravansa and Douglas Devananda besides many parliamentarians from the South, revealed the glaring absence of essential matters like allocation of funds for resettlement or definite plans for resettlement, the sources added. Colombo government has enacted another ‘drama’ to show the world that it is able to convene a conference in Ki’linochchi town just as the Liberation Tigers had done in their days, political circles in North said.



Unveiling of the name board of Kil’linochchi was the only accomplishment the conference achieved Monday, the participants said.

Deputy Minister of Ministry of Resettlement Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna whose presence was eagerly anticipated was a conspicuous absentee in the conference.

The government department and corporation officers from Vavuniyaa and Jaffna had rushed to Ki’inochchi on being commanded by their superiors to attend the above conference.

The ministers and parliamentarians from South flew into Ki’linochchi and back, in helicopters.

This is yet another show staged to deceive the international community, observers of the event said.
