Geneva resolution answerable to arson committed on Tamil press: Jaffna activist

[TamilNet, Saturday, 13 April 2013, 15:37 GMT]
Burning the press of Eezham Tamils in the island has more than three decades of history. The office and machinery of the Jaffna-based Tamil Daily Eezha Naadu was burnt down the very night the Jaffna Public Library was put to ashes in 1981. Arson was once again committed on Eezha Naadu while the IPKF of the New Delhi Establishment was occupying Jaffna. The Washington-New Delhi deception carried out in the name of Geneva resolution, allowing Sri Lanka to escape from genocide indictment and to continue with structural genocide, is answerable to the current attacks and arson committed on the press of Eezham Tamils in the island, said a new generation political activist in Jaffna.

Further comments from the activist in Jaffna:

After 2009, capture, or if capture not possible, attack on the press of Eezham Tamils is systematically carried out in Jaffna and Colombo.

Nowadays, not only the genocidal Establishment in Colombo, but also the abetting Establishments in Washington and New Delhi are actively engaged in capturing the media of Eezham Tamils and in buying journalists inside and outside of the island.

Meanwhile, China has agreed to help significantly upgrade Sri Lankan ‘cyber-warfare’ capabilities, The Indian Express reported last month.

The current series of attack and arson on the press of Eezham Tamils that tries to remain independent follows the ‘reconciliation’ preceptor Washington initiating an empty resolution at Geneva and New Delhi watering it down further.

The OHCHR could find itself ‘occupied’ in cataloguing such attacks, as it was destined by the Geneva resolution for the job of only counting ‘the trees’, the political activist in Jaffna said.
