University Teachers Union leader harassed by SL interrogators

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 26 November 2013, 23:13 GMT]
The ‘Terrorist’ Investigation Division of the occupying Sri Lanka has questioned the president of Teachers Union of Jaffna University, Mr S. Rajkumar, over a news item that appeared in a local news paper in Jaffna where he defended the collective right of Tamil people in remembering their loved ones who have sacrificed their lives for their common cause. The TID operatives in Jaffna also grilled the reporter, who interviewed the president of the Teachers Union.

Meanwhile, reporters at local newspapers in Jaffna said their managements were instructed by the TID not to publish any news of gatherings or remembrance events.

Mr Rajkumar faced TID interrogations also last year for defending the right of the students of Jaffna University in paying tribute to those fallen in the war.

The University Teachers association also took part in the demonstration by the relatives of the missing persons in front of Jaffna Public Library on November 15, when British PM David Cameron visited Jaffna.
