EPDP blocks Norway embassy with coffin

[TamilNet, Monday, 20 September 2004, 13:29 GMT]
A large group of EPDP cadres blocked the main entrance of the Norwegian embassy in Colombo Monday for more than two hours with the coffin of one of their colleagues who was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Puttalam two days ago. The EPDP protested in front of the Norwegian mission from against the killing of its cadres, urging Oslo to take concrete action to stop the assasinations. EPDP cadres burnt the effigies of LTTE leaders, accusing them for the killings. EPDP is a key paramilitary in Sri Lanka. It is also a close ally of President Kumaratunga.

The protest was led by Mr. S. Sivathasan and A. Rasamanickam from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday.

The protestors handed over a petition to the Norwegian government when they concluded the protest.
