SL Presidential Secretariat joins TID in harassing Tamil activists with interrogations.

[TamilNet, Monday, 28 May 2018, 21:04 GMT]
Occupying Colombo has increased the so-called 'Terrorist' investigation threats against ex-LTTE members in recent days, especially after the people in North-East successfully marked Mu'l'livaaykkaal Tamil Genocide Day on 18 May. One of the ex-LTTE members instructed to appear for clarifications is ITAK executive committee member K. Jeyakumar from Ki'linochchi, who is a close confidante of Tamil National Alliance parliamentarian Sivagnanam Sritharan. He has been instructed to present himself at the TID office in Colombo on Monday, sources close to the TNA parliamentarian said.

Jeyakumar, who lost one of his limbs in the last phase of the genocidal war in 2009 is also the chairman of the Chamber of Commerce in Ki'linochchi town. He runs a vegetable shop.

Jeyakumar is to be questioned about the marking of Tamil Genocide Day in Ki'linochchi, the sources further said.

There are also reports of two other ex-LTTE members being instructed to present themselves at the 4th Floor in Colombo.

The remembrance event was marked according to the request coming from the democratically elected Northern Provincial Council.

The Mu'l'livaaykkaal Tamil Genocide Remembrance was organised by the NPC and the students of Jaffna University.

The Jaffna University Student Union (JUSU) got involved into the remembrance at Mu'l'livaaykkaal as SL Presidential Secretary Austin Fernando threatened the Jaffna University administration against the move by the students to launch a remembrance monument within the premises of Jaffna University.

Before becoming full-time secretary to SL President Maithiripala Sirisena, Mr Fernando was the colonial governor of Colombo to the Eastern Province.

Recently, the SL TID was also harassing two Vavuniyaa-based Tamil women with 3-hour lengthy interrogations. The women were involved in the continuous protests demanding the SL President to establish the whereabouts of their family members who have been subjected to enforced disappearances. They were objecting to the establishment of the so-called Office for Missing Persons as a farce. The TID told the women that they were being interrogated based on the information coming from the SL Presidential Secretariat.
