JVP parliamentarian accuses government of 'white van culture'

[TamilNet, Saturday, 26 July 2008, 06:38 GMT]
Parliamentarian Mr.Wijitha Heart, Propaganda, propaganda secretary of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), told media Friday that abductions are now being carried out in the country with the blessing of the government. The excavation of a corpse of a Tamil person who is alleged to have been abducted and later found to be dumped in the premises of the office of the Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) in Batticaloa, clearly points complicity of Colombo in the abduction-murder, the JVP MP added. EPDP is a constituent of the ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government, and the leader of EPDP is a cabinet minister.



Commenting on the increased number of abductions in Sri Lanka, Mr.Wijitha Heart said it is appropriate to say that in Sri Lanka the democracy has been murdered.

"Tamil peoples have been living in constant fear of abduction. The government should take the responsibility for the introduction of white van culture in the country, especially in areas where Tamils live in large numbers," he added.
