SL military further stifles civil life in North

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 December 2013, 16:53 GMT]
Following the instruction from occupying Colombo's Defence Secretary and Sri Lankan Presidential sibling Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, a number of 'Terrorist Investigation Department' (TID) cells have started to function inside the Sri Lankan Police stations in the North in recent days. SL intelligence operatives claiming as TID investigators are engaged in muzzling the civilians, relatives of the victims demanding justice, social media activists and journalists. Those who interacted with the US Embassy delegation that visited Jaffna recently, were being invited for interrogations over the phone, news sources in Jaffna said.

The 'military' TID operatives engage in surveillance operations.

All the activities of ‘white’ foreigners are being strictly monitored and reported to Colombo, according to informed sources.

The US delegation was visiting to 'inspect' the programmes supported by the USAID in the North, sources close to US Embassy said.

In the meantime, the SL 'Military' Governor of North Maj Gen (retd.) G.A. Chandrasiri has been insisting that the foreign officials and diplomats visiting Jaffna should call on him.

It has almost become a military protocol that foreign officials visiting the North to meet with SL military commanders at the military headquarters at Palaali or Vanni before the proceed further.

Even after the election of the Northern Provincial Council (NPC), the SL Governor and military commanders insist that the foreign envoys visiting North should be taking their route through them as before.

The SL military, monitoring all civil activities through its intelligence outfits, is controlling the civil affairs at its fingertips, leaving no room for democratic institutions.
