Scrap CFA, oust Norway, Weerawanse urges SC

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 October 2006, 09:07 GMT]
Wimal Weerawanse, the parliamentarian and propaganda secretary of the Sinhala nationalist Jantha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), welcoming the Monday verdict of the Sri Lankan Supreme Court (SC) ruling that the merged Northeastern province was unconstitutional, invalid and illegal, told the press in Colombo Monday that the SC should declare the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) illegal and oust Norway from its facilitator role.

The North and East were merged by former President J. R. Jayawardene in a "secret and illegal manner," according to the JVP MP.

The northern and eastern provinces were merged according to the Indo-Sri Lanka agreement signed in 1987 by the then Sri Lanka President J. R. Jayawardene, and the former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Ghandi.

The CFA was signed in 2002 by former Sri Lanka Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and the Leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, V. Pirapaharan.

The SC ruling on Monday was the "first slap in the face" of those who support the concept of a Tamil homeland, Mr. Weerwanse further told media.
