SL Navy prompts survey department to initiate police action against NPC Councillor Shivajilingam

[TamilNet, Friday, 23 February 2018, 18:54 GMT]
SL Survey Department officials complained to the SL Police in Mullaiththeevu police alleging NPC Provincial Councillor M.K. Shivajilingam had smashed the glasses of one of their vehicle that emerged out of the SLNS Gotabhaya naval base on Thursday when people from Vadduvaakal were protesting against the move to seize their 671 acres of lands permanently. The SL police were trying to use as much as possible legal clauses to harass the NPC Councillor and the former parliamentarian who stands up for the struggling people.

A highly placed NPC councillor told TamilNet on Friday that maximum effort would be put in place to defend Mr Shivajilingam legally.

“The SL military intelligence is trying to harass Mr Shivajilingam with legal warrants, threats of interrogation. They would also attempt to block him from traveling abroad. We will make sure that he attends the Human Rights Council sessions in Geneva and we will do our maximum to defend him legally” the councillor said after making arrangements for his legal defence.
