Tamils sidelined in civil service recruitment in East

[TamilNet, Sunday, 19 January 2014, 09:08 GMT]
The occupying Colombo’s Ministry of Public Administration and the Eastern Provincial Council administration have sidelined Tamils in public service appointments in the three districts of Eastern Province, Tamil civil sources in Trincomalee said. Tamils who received top marks in the selection examinations held for the administrative assistant posts in the Eastern Provincial Council (EPC) in September 2013, have not been called for interviews. Instead, 100 Sinhalese and 49 Muslims are have been called for interviews to be held on 21 January for 153 vacancies. Only a few Tamils have received letters.

After the genocidal onslaught on Eezham Tamils in 2009, Sinhala officials in Trincomalee went on record stating that the appointments were done according to the ethnic composition in the entire island, which meant Sinhalese were appointed in large numbers in Tamil areas. When this practice was questioned in the East, the officials said the appointments in future would be made only according to merits.

Most of the Sinhalese are to be appointed for posts in Trincomalee. Only a few Tamils are to be appointed in Batticaloa and Ampaa’rai districts.

Tamils who ranked at 5th place in the examination were not invited to the interview, while Sinhalese ranking at 50th place have been selected, Tamil civil sources in Trincomalee told TamilNet.

Colombo’s ex-military and military officers run the civil affairs both in the Northern and in the Eastern Provinces, executing a systematic programme of structural genocide in the Tamil homeland.
