Emergency used to target peaceful Tamil activists at Keappaa-pulavu in Vanni

[TamilNet, Friday, 17 May 2019, 09:49 GMT]
The SL Military and the Police were allowing the Sinhala colonists to lay siege to the District Secretariat in Mullaiththeevu on Monday. However, they were harassing four Tamil protesters, who met a small group of foreign journalists at Keappaa-pulavu in Vanni on the same day. “The checkpoint was not there when we started the meeting. However, after 25 minutes, the checkpoint was hurriedly put up near the protest site and the four of us, as well as the journalists talking to us, were thoroughly checked at the post. The SL military knows us very well as we have been staging the protest along the street near the military camp for 807 days,” Chandraleela Simidkasan, a leader of protesting Tamil women at Keappaa-pulavu said on Tuesday.



Ms Chandraleela has been involved in a continuous protest to free the lands of Tamil people at Keappaa-pulavu in Mullaiththeevu throughout the past three years.

The SL military was also harassing the journalists as it was checking what was recorded in their camera, she said.

Chandraleela blamed the SL government in Colombo for the continued discrimination in deploying the Emergency Regulations to check the peaceful protesters.

In the meantime, Journalists in Vanni said that the occupying Sinhala military has put up additional checkpoints everywhere in a move to block the people from taking part in the tenth year marking of the Mu’l’ li-vaaykkaal Tamil Genocide Remembrance on Saturday.
