SL Police threaten Tamils in Colombo to sign petition against UN

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 26 April 2011, 10:18 GMT]
Sri Lanka’s State Intelligence Unit personnel are threatening Tamils walking along roads in Colombo, forcing them to sign petitions prepared by the Rajapakse led government in an attempt to collect one million signatures against the UN Experts panel report. Tamils who refuse to sign are threatened and subjected to bodily harm, Tamil civil sources allege.

SLA intelligence men two days ago summoned a Tamil youth in the Fort area in Colombo and asked him to sign the petition. When he refused to sign it, he was assaulted by police personnel, the youth said.
