Pararajasingham slaying, a barbaric act - fellow Batticaloa MP

[TamilNet, Sunday, 25 December 2005, 01:19 GMT]
"The slaying of the senior and experienced politician from Batticaloa, Mr. Joseph Pararajasingham, while at prayer inside the church on the holy day of Christmas, was a barbaric act affecting the collective Tamil psyche," said the fellow Batticaloa District Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Member of Parliament Mr. S. Jeyananthamoorthy, who was on a political tour to Europe. The Batticaloa MP said that the time has come for the International Community, specially the EU and the Co-Chairs, to prevail upon the Sri Lankan Government to fully comply with the Ceasefire Agreement.

"Targeting key Tamil political actors," and "blocking the Tamil side from the access to the west," is a two-pronged strategy adopted by the Sri Lankan state to weaken the Tamil struggle, Jeyananthamoorthy said. This strategy will fail and in its wake likely bring an unprecedented catastrophe to Sri Lanka, he added.

The International Community must therefore prevail upon the Sri Lanka Government to stop these crimes before the existing tenuous peace breaks down irrevocably, Jeyanathamoorthy added.
