Sri Lanka: More Government Measures Necessary to Establish Democracy and Accountability
Uploaded Date: 04/05/2013
The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) welcomes the 25 August announcement of President Mahinda Rajapaksa that the State of Emergency will not be extended when it comes up for renewal before the Sri Lankan Parliament in September 2011, resulting in the termination of all Emergency Regulations. The TIC, along with several civil and human rights agencies within and outside Sri Lanka, has been campaigning against this draconian national security legislation which was used to silence critics and dissenters.

Sri Lanka should break silence on Tamil youth in their captive
Uploaded Date: 04/05/2013
The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) has called on Sri Lankan government to break its silence over the details of 12,000 Tamil youths in its custody. A year on, the TIC has also called on the human rights community and, in particular, the Sri Lanka diaspora and groups, to focus their efforts to insist on the government of Sri Lanka to release the details of the detainees who have been held incommunicado detention. The government, continues to deny, refuse to confirm and actively conceals information about the fate or whereabouts of the detainees.

TIC Statement - Sri Lanka APRC Politics after 60 years of Independence-04-02-2008
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
The proposals of the All Party Representative Committee (APRC) submitted to President Mahinda Rajapakse in January 2008 have accentuated Tamil fears about the intentions of the Sri Lankan government in finding a solution to the conflict that has resulted in widespread human suffering. The APRC's actions appear to be in unison with the government's preference of a military solution rather than a negotiated political settlement.

Sri Lanka-Withdrawal from CFA will result in war against civilians-08-01-08
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
The Sri Lankan government's withdrawal from the ceasefire agreement is a retrogressive step that has the potential of plunging the country into grievous crisis and exposing the civilian population, particularly in the north-east, into further misery. The government decision will not find favour amongst the people of Sri Lanka, in particular those who live in the Tamil homeland and the plantations, and the international community. The people now face the most dreadful and disgraceful decision by any Sri Lankan government. If war intensifies, "all of us lose" is the general feeling among the ordinary people of the different communities in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka - New direction needed to arrest chaos
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
The Sri Lankan government continues to reject repeated calls by the international community to refrain from seeking a military solution to the Tamil national question and to engage in a political dialogue to resolve the conflict. The TIC urges the government to adopt a violence-reduction strategy that encourages cooperation among the island's embattled communities, rather than continuing to pursue a destructive and divisive military solution in Sri Lanka.
