EPDP Thinamurasu published as daily paper in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Saturday, 02 October 2010, 03:14 GMT]
Thinamurasu, the Eealam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) weekly that was published in Colombo and issued in Jaffna peninsula by EPDP leader and Sri Lanka minister Douglas Devananda was released in Jaffna Friday as a daily when he opened his press located in Chu’ndikkuzhi on Jaffna main road. It is alleged that Douglas Devananda had coerced the editors and workers of former ‘Namathu Eezhanaadu’ daily which had stopped publishing, into working in his newly opened press, local media sources said.

Thinamurasu Tamil daily is now published in Jaffna peninsula in addition to three dailies of Uthayan, Valampuri and Yarl Thinakural.

Douglas Devananda had enticed and coerced persons from the resettled families in Jaffna peninsula and from the camps for uprooted persons in Vavuniyaa offering them freedom from detention and attractive salaries, the sources further alleged.

Meanwhile, a special team of Colombo Crime Division arrested the owner of Churapi Achchakam (printing press), C. Kuruthev, in Jaffna 21 September and took him to Colombo for inquiry. Kuruthev’s brother, the General Manager of the Tamil daily Namathu Eezhanaadu, C. Sivamaharajah, had been assassinated at his house in Thellippazhai in August 2006.

Douglas Devananda, had sought to acquire Churapi Achchakam to print Thinamurasu to which Kuruthev had not consented, media circles in Jaffna said.
