Human Rights Ambassador William Gomes asks for closure of investigation against Balendran Jeyakumari

On 10 March 2015, human rights defender Ms Balendran Jeyakumari was conditionally released upon payment of a bond of 200,000 Sri Lankan Rupees (approximately €1420) pending completion of the investigation. As part of the conditions imposed by the Colombo Chief Magistrate Court for the release, the human rights defender’s passport was confiscated and she is required to report to the police twice a month. Since the enforced disappearance of her husband during the war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), Balendran Jeyakumari has led a campaign demanding to know the whereabouts of missing persons who had been arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Sri Lanka.

(CHENNAI)  Ceylon Today has reported that President Sirisena was dismayed by the Resolution on Genocide passed by the Northern Provincial Council (NPC). He claimed that the NPC had exceeded its powers by passing the resolution. The NPC was set up under the 13th Amendment to enslave the Tamils. The so called devolution of powers to the provinces was meant for the Tamils to accept whatever the Sinhalese government gave them without questioning; but the Hon. Chief Minister, Mr. Wigneswaran, has demanded the Internationally Recognised Legitimate Rights of the Tamil Nation, which the duo,Mr. Sambanthan and Mr. Sumanthiran dare not raise and would not allow anyone else to do so.

Jaffna uni poster Feb 2015An anonymous poster found inside the student hall at the University of Jaffna condemns the attendance of the TNA leader, R Sampanthan, and the TNA MP M A Sumanthiran, at the Sri Lankan government’s Independence Day event on February 4.

Intro by Visvanathan for Global News Centre

(CHENNAI) This anonymous poster pasted my Jaffna University students speaks volumes for itself. In the first place, the freedom of speech is such, that no student dares to attach his name to such a poster, damning the two parliamentarians, Sampanthan and Sumanthiran, for attending Sinhalese independence day celebration.

If any of the students had been caught, he would have been arrested and sent for re-education in a military camp..Secondly, it shows how much pain the conduct of the duo had caused the Tamils in their Homeland. They feel humiliated that their leaders had to stoop so low to the Sinhalese leaders to get some benefits for the Tamils.
