ITAK activists threatened by SLA intelligence operatives in Mullaiththeevu

[TamilNet, Friday, 30 December 2011, 14:34 GMT]
Activists of the Ilangkai Thamizh Arasuk Kadchi (ITAK) in Mullaiththeevu of Vanni, who were engaged in organizing party activities this week have been threatened with death by intelligence operatives of the Sri Lanka Army, sources in Mullaiththeevu told TamilNet. The intimidation by the occupying SLA has come following the leading activists of the ITAK Mr.C.V.K.Sivagnanam and Mr. Kunanayagam, went to the district distributing forms to enrol members to the party. The SLA intelligence personnel have targeted the activists of the party in Mullaiththeevu for accepting these forms.

SLA intelligence operatives trespassed into the house of the ITAK volunteers and seized all forms at gun point. Those refused to hand over such forms have been threatened with death, according to the sources.

The SLFP of SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa is given free hand to take forward its political agenda in the district.

While the activities of ITAK and other TNA member parties remain virtually banned in Mullaiththeevu by the SLA, the presence of paramilitay groups of Karuna and Devananda, and the associates of Namal Rajapakse, the son of Mahinda Rajapaksa, have been increased in the district.

In the meantime, ITAK central committee meeting was held on Friday at the residence of Mr.Sampanthan in Trincomalee. Seven parliamentarians attended the meeting along with other members.
