Occupying SL military threatens TNA politicians in Jaffna


08 May 2011

While building up democratic politics in the north and east is reiterated as a prerequisite for ‘reconciliation,’ the genocidal SL Army occupying Jaffna under the command of ‘Asian Nobel Peace Laureate’ Maj. Gen. Mahinda Hathurusinghe is engaged in intimidating politicians of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), the most favoured political formation in the north and east, and the people who come into contact with it, news sources in Jaffna said.
The occupying army particularly threatening people resettled in the so-called High Security Zones that “the TNA should not come here, if they come you will be chased out again,” shows that there is a long-term agenda in the Army to take Tamil politics directly into its hands, the news sources further said.

Occupying Sri Lanka Army and its intelligence units are now targeting the politicians and supporters of the Tamil National Alliance.

All their movements were watched and followed, allege the Tamil politicians.

TNA parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran has recently alleged that after increased confrontations he and Mavai Senathiraja faced with Hathurusinghe, his personal assistant Mr. Ramesh was attacked.

Accusing the TNA for kindling a revival of the struggle, Hathurusinghe in a recent media interview threatened that he would arrest a particular TNA parliamentarian.

The present watch on the TNA gains new significance in this light.

They are particularly followed when they visit resettled people in the High Security Zone.

After every visit of them, the Army goes to the houses of the people, intimidate them, and ask why the TNA parliamentarians had come, the TNA said.

The military intelligence had gone to the houses of the candidates who contest for the local body elections and collected the details of the family members in an intimidating way.

In the same way the supporters of the TNA are also targeted.

Recently Suresh visited areas in the HSZ and distributed questionnaires collecting details of the people. Later, the Army that went to the houses tore down those forms.

TNA should not come here. If they come you all will be chased out again, threaten the Army.
