Sivathamby denies involvement in Tamil writers conference

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 07 September 2010, 02:19 GMT]
Veteran Eezham Tamil scholar Professor Karthigesu Sivathamby, Emeritus Professor of Tamil of the University of Jaffna, Sunday denied a report that he had been in the forefront in organizing the so-called 'World Tamil Writers Conference' in Colombo scheduled for January next year. His denial was carried in the Sunday edition of a leading Tamil weekly, Thinakkural, published from Colombo.

Prof. Sivathamby said he had once been contacted by a friend from Australia over the proposed 'International Tamil Writers Conference 'in Colombo scheduled for January next year.

“But I explained to him that the present situation in Sri Lanka is not conducive to hold such conference in Colombo. Therefore, I deny reports involving me in such conference as I am unaware of anything about it,” Sivathamby said according to Thinakkural.
