Colombo harasses Tamil politicians, civil officials

[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 March 2012, 11:21 GMT]
Sri Lankan ‘Criminal Investigation Department’ in Colombo has stepped up harassments on Tamil politicians and civil officials summoning them for investigation meetings in Colombo. A politician and a medical officer have been recently ‘invited’ to appear in Colombo without providing any information on why they were being ‘investigated’. Colombo government has again started to systematically harass the active sections Eezham Tamils, seeking to dis-empower them by de-motivating and demoralising such activists.

Former Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Parliamentarian and Tamil National People Front (TNPF) politician Ms. Pathmini Sithamparan was questioned by the CID on Friday.

A leading medical officer from Jaffna hospital was also subjected to similar ‘investigations’, the sources further said.

The CID officials were questioning Ms. Sithamparanathan on TNA parliamentarian K. Sivanesan's funeral that took place in 2008 in Vanni. LTTE leader Mr. V. Pirapaharan was present at the funeral of the TNA MP who was allegedly assassinated by the Deep Penetration Unit of the Sri Lankan military in March 2008.

The CID officials were questioning Ms. Sithamparanathan about who were present in the funeral.
