SLMM condemns Meedin killing

[TamilNet, Monday, 31 October 2005, 12:15 GMT]
In a press release issued Monday, the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) condemned the killing of Lieutenant Colonel Meedin in Colombo Saturday and urged "the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to work together to end the violence in the country so that the confidence between the two Parties can be restored and the Peace Process continued."

Full text of the release follows:

Subject: SLMM condemns the killings of Lieutenant Colonel Meedin

The SLMM condemns the killing of the senior officer of the Military Intelligence Corps, Lt. Col. Meedin, which took place on Saturday night. Our sympathies are with the family of the deceased.

Over 190 people have been killed in Sri Lanka since the beginning of the year in suspected political killings. The SLMM has on countless occasions expressed major concerns over this constant violence. The killings have gradually undermined the CFA and resulted in mistrust and bad atmosphere between the Parties.

The SLMM would like to urge the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to work together to end the violence in the country so that the confidence between the two Parties can be restored and the Peace Process continued.
