SL governor deploys NPC resources to mark military ‘victory’ in Vanni

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 13 May 2014, 23:13 GMT]
While denying Eezham Tamils their collective right to commemorate their war-dead and the victims of genocidal onslaught, the colonial governor of the occupying Sri Lankan State in North, Major General (retd) G.A. Chandrasiri has used the funds allocated to Northern Provincial Council (NPC) to conduct a Sri Lankan military ceremony to ‘mark’ the so-called victory of the Sri Lankan State and to honour the soldiers of the occupying military perished in the war. The SL governor also instructed the employees of the NPC, including the secretaries and top officials of the provincial council to accompany him to the military function held at Nanthik-kadal to mark the genocidal victory of the SL military on Monday. Tamil children in Mullaiththeevu were forced to attend the event. The elected Tamil councillors of the NPC have opposed the move.

The only elected Tamil representative to be present at the event was Mayor of Jaffna Municipal Council (JMC) Yogeswary Patkunam belonging to the EPDP.

While the US-trained Sri Lankan military commander in Jaffna Major General Udaya Perera, who was denying Eezham Tamils to honour their kith and kin who faced the genocidal onslaught on Vanni, has almost declared a war against the students and academics at the Universtiy of Jaffna against marking Mu’l’livaaykkaal Day, hundreds of school children in Mullaiththeevu were picked up from the schools and forced to welcome the Sri Lankan military commanders to the military staged event near Nanthik-kadal lagoon.

Sinhala students at the University of Jaffna are also under pressure from the SL military establishment to spy against the Eezham Tamil students, news sources in Jaffna said.

Amidst all the prevailing harassments, the University Teachers Association has reieterated the democratic right to remember the victims of genocidal onslaught.
