SL military issues death threats to elected members amidst presence of foreign journalists

[TamilNet, Monday, 11 November 2013, 12:26 GMT]
Amidst the presence of foreign journalists who have come to Jaffna in connection with the CHOGM meet, alleged operatives of the occupying SL military have been issuing death threats to the organisers of the protest scheduled to take place on Tuesday. In the early hours of Monday, heads of dead cows were dumped in front of the houses of chairman and deputy chairman of the elected civic body of Valikaamam North. The act, which is not only considered as deeply insulting, but also as reminding the days of beheading, comes as both the elected Tamil National Alliance (TNA) members were engaged in organising a protest against the transformation of former ‘High Security Zone’ lands into ‘Sinhala Military Zone’ and the demolition of houses by the SL military in Valikaamam North.

Both Mr S. Sugirthan, the chairman of the Piratheasa Chapai (PS) and Mr S. Sajeevan, the deputy chairman of the PS have been receiving anonymous phone calls with beheading death threats if they went ahead with organising the protests.

Regardless of the threats, the uprooted people are determined to stage the protest, civil sources in Valikaamam North said.

Mr Sugirthan and Mr Sajeevan said they had registered complaints with the SL police although the SL police also operates with the same motive as that of the occupying military of Colombo.

The SL military operatives had earlier deployed similar threats against civil leaders, rights activists and prominent academics in Jaffna. Heads of dead cows were also thrown into the wells by the SL military operatives. The SL operatives have also used crude oil attacks against the activists.
