Colombo twists investigation of Canadian Tamil citizen's brutal slaying

[TamilNet, Saturday, 26 May 2012, 22:56 GMT]
Sri Lankan military intelligence and the SL Police have projected the murder case of the late Mahendrarajah as a ‘robbery’ related crime by allegedly ‘fixing’ approvers. Informed sources in Ki'linochchi told TamilNet Saturday that the laptop and the mobile phones missing from the victim and ‘recovered’ later by the SL police were found erased of contact details and logs. The manoeuvrings of the Colombo regime, its defence establishment and its intelligence outfits in fixing the case shows only a tip of the iceberg about the existing conditions, but a careful scrutiny and pursue of even minor details of the fixing exercise would reveal the dimensions of the plight faced by Eezham Tamils in the captivity of the genocidal regime, informed circles knowing background stories further said.

The ‘approver’ story was not consistent between what the SL police spokesman was telling the media and what the alleged approvers were telling the Courts, the sources further said.

Arulampalam Akilan, Appahu Anandarasa, Nalluchamy Balachandran, and Abeysinghe Mudiyanselage Michael Pradeepkumar were the people who have been arrested by the SL Police, according to news reports.

A woman, who has been alleged by the SL Police as the person behind the murder, has denied the charges and said that she didn't even know the slain victim.

In the meantime, The Globe and Mail in Canada reported Rathika Sitsabaiesan, the Canadian Tamil MP as having voiced for the issue during a recent Tamil rally in Scarborough. “We need to make sure the Canadian government is pushing for an investigation – a lot of members of the community are outraged,” Rathika was quoted as saying.

The diaspora, especially the diaspora in Canada that has representation even in the Canadian parliament, has to realize the universal importance of the case intimidating the diaspora through Colombo's application of 'militarized reconciliation' originating from the US State Department and has to act accordingly, without citing 'excuses', civil activists in the island urged.
