Silencing Tamil voices, genocidal tactic - Puleedevan

[TamilNet, Thursday, 03 January 2008, 17:31 GMT]
Director of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Peace Secretariat, S. Puleedevan, on Thursday charged that the Government of Sri Lanka, locked in a military mindset, has been eliminating Tamil politicians who voiced for Tamil rights, irrespective of their political alignment. Mr. Puleedevan was referring to the slaying of the Colombo Tamil parliamentarian T. Maheswaran of the United National Party on New Year's Day inside a Sivan temple in Colombo.

The LTTE's director of peace secretariat further said that the assassination of the Colombo Tamil politician was a "terror tactic by the militaristic regime which was fully intent on carrying forward its genocidal agenda," shutting down all paths to peaceful negotiations and settlement of the Sri Lanka conflict.
