Sri Lanka bans Remembrance events at Mu'l'livaaykkaal

[TamilNet, Saturday, 16 May 2015, 17:03 GMT]
The occupying State of Sri Lanka has banned the Northern Provincial Council (NPC) members in Mullaiththeevu from taking part at the memorial events to be held at Mu'l'livaaykkaal with the participation of the public, according to an order issued by the SL courts in Mullaiththeevu following a police complain, Deputy Speaker of NPC Antony Jeganathan told TamilNet Saturday. The latest move is a gross violation hurting the sentiments of Eezham Tamils, Mr Jeganathan said. A similar order has been issued to the Tamil National Peoples Front (TNPF), the news sources in Jaffna said. The Chief Minister of NPC, C.V. Wigneswaran had officially invited all the parliamentarians and councillors from the Northern Province to attend the memorial event at the Government Mixed School at Mu'l'livaaykkaal East at 10:00 a.m. on 18 May.

The Chief Minister, Justice C.V. Wigneswaran, who is fully aware of the Sri Lankan laws, made the decision to mark the memorial event for civilians killed in the war without any procession at Mu'l'livaaykkaal, the deputy speaker further told TamilNet.

The so-called interim ban was issued Saturday night as the SL Police got the Magistrate of Mullaiththeevu Magistrate's Court to issue the ban from his residence while the NPC or the TNPF cannot appeal against the decision before Monday on the day of memorial event.

However, Mr Jeganathan said the NPC councillors were determined to mark the memorial day as scheduled at Mu'l'livaaykkaal on 18 May.
