SL minister intimidates resettled in Vanni to sign against UN report

[TamilNet, Monday, 09 May 2011, 12:55 GMT]
Similar to the show of a group of Sinhala thugs forcing passers by to sign petition against UN panel report in Jaffna city Sunday, a Sri Lankan minister CB Ratnayake lead the occupying military and military intelligence personnel to intimidate the resettled Eezham Tamils in Vanni to sign a petition Saturday and Sunday. Members of village and civil society institutions were summoned over the phone by the military to bring people to Ki’linochchi town and when they gathered, the group lead by Ratnayake forced them to sign the petition. The military deployed in the streets in large numbers saw to it that no one escapes signing.

Such explicit intimidations cannot actually hoodwink the civilised world from being aware of the truth. But what exactly genocidal Colombo wants to demonstrate is convincing some of the world establishments of complicity that how successful it is in keeping the Eezham Tamils subjugated, so that it should be allowed to continue with such ‘reconciliation’ without disturbances.

It is also to demonstrate to Eezham Tamils that this is their political reality, and they should rather meekly accept it rather than hoping in any international system, political observers commented.
