SL Police officer threatens rights activist Sundaram in Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Monday, 23 December 2013, 10:20 GMT]
The Sri Lankan Police Inspector, who is in charge of the Trincomalee Police Station had threatened the head of the committee of missing persons, Mr Sundaram Mahendran, when he went there to make a complaint on the attack on him and the protesters on the Human Rights Day. A squad of masked men, allegedly operated by the intelligence wing of the occupying SL military, attacked the peaceful protest organized on December 10 as the SL police was watching the Sinhala squad’s assault on the demonstrators. Mr Sundaram was wounded in the attack and admitted to the hospital.

In a complaint to the Sri Lankan Inspector General of Police, the rights activist said the police officer threatened to file a lawsuit in the Sri Lankan courts accusing Mr Sundaram of ‘inciting Tamil racism’ through staging the protest.

The Police officer had also threatened the activist blaming him for not having secured ‘necessary’ permission to conduct the demonstration, Mr Sundaram stated in his complaint to the SL IGP.

In the meantime, Tamil rights activists in Trincomalee told TamilNet that a detailed report on the assault will be submitted to the United Nations office in Colombo.

The document will also be sent to UN Secretary General and Human Rights High Commissioner.
