2ND LEAD (Adds video)

Premachandran urges ITAK MPs to establish party position on international investigations

[TamilNet, Friday, 04 September 2015, 23:13 GMT]
Suresh Premachandran, former parliamentarian and the leader of EPRLF, who recognised that the majority of the party members within the Ilangkai Thamizh Arasuk Kadchi (ITAK) are opposed to the domestic accountability mechanism being proposed by the USA, urged the ITAK parliamentarians, provincial councillors and others to focus on clarifying the party position of the ITAK leadership instead of giving personal media interviews demanding International Investigations to save their skin. Mr Premachandran's interview comes after S. Sritharan, who entered parliamentary politics initially through EPRLF ticket and later crossed over to the ITAK, has been giving interviews to media saying that he was rejecting the domestic mechanism and was demanding international investigations without exerting pressure on ITAK hierarchy.

The TNA comprises of ITAK, TELO, EPRLF (Suresh-wing) and PLOTE.

Three of the four parties have sent a joint letter to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights demanding international accountability mechanism including the investigations on genocide.

The ITAK parliamentarians, councillors and others should make their party leadership to change its position before going out and giving public interviews to save their own skin, the EPRLF leader responded to a question on the position of the majority of ITAK denouncing domestic mechanism in media.

The Northern Provincial Council, led by Justice C.V. Wigneswaran has passed a resolution rejecting domestic investigations and demanding international investigations, on Tuesday.
