Academics question ICE deceit after Solheim's speech at London book launch

[TamilNet, Monday, 08 October 2012, 22:01 GMT]
Reacting to arguments put forth by the panel of discussants at the London book launch event of Frances Harrison's 'Still Counting the Dead' on Friday, especially to the opinions of Norwegian politician and peace-broker Erik Solheim, Indian academic Radha D'Souza and UK-based academic Amanda Latimer, criticized the politics of deceit the International Community of Establishments (ICE) was playing with the Tamils. In exclusive videos to TamilNet, both Dr. D'Souza and Ms. Latimer came down hard on the Western Establishments and those working with vested interests for spreading misinformation to the Tamil diaspora about the liberation struggle of the Eezham Tamils.

The panellists at the event besides Mr Erik Solheim were Mr Alan Keenan, Sri Lanka project director in the International Crisis Group (ICG) and Ms Yasmin Sooka, member of the UNSG panel that brought out a report on the war in the island of Sri Lanka.

Earlier, at the book launch event, both Dr. D'Souza and Ms. Latimer had raised questions on the UK and India providing arms and other help to the genocide-accused Sri Lankan government. Their questions were not satisfactorily answered.

Dr. D'Souza and Ms. Latimer were interviewed by TamilNet during the book launch event of Ms. Frances Harrison in London on Friday.
