TNA condemns killing of TELO Member

[TamilNet, Saturday, 14 July 2007, 05:14 GMT]
In a communiqué issued Friday, the parliamentary group of Tamil National Alliance (TNA) condemned the killing of Thiyagarajah, a member of Tamil Eelam Liberation Organisation (TELO), by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers and policemen Thursday in the district office located in Pa'ndaarikku'lam, Vavuniyaa.

The full text of the communiqué follows:

TNA strongly condemns the action by the armed forces forcibly entering the TELO district office located on Koyil road in Pa'ndaarikku'lam, Vavuniyaa, ransacking the building and killing a TELO member.

TELO is a member party of the TNA and is a recognized political party. It is clear that the forces have taken the law into their own hands and entered the premises of the party’s district office under the pretext of a search operation.

As a result of this action, the life of a father of two children has been lost in vain.

We are forced to view this action as a challenge to our political rules and regulations as well as to our firmness in our policies.

We expect the truth to come out regarding the death of the member of TELO. We express our deepest condolences to the family of Late Thiyagarajah.
