Senseless Murder of a Selfless and Courageous Woman - Maheswary Velayutham
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
Humanitarian Maheswary Velayutham was brutally gunned down by cowards in Jaffna on 13 May 2008. The killers were probably unaware of her selfless sacrifices in the cause of her community. The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) condemns this appalling act of terrorism which has left many people in Sri Lanka and abroad in despair. This is a dark day for everyone who believes in human rights and the Tamil people's struggle for self-determination.

Human Rights Defenders Need to Unite-02-01-08
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
The year 2008 began in Sri Lanka with horrendous violence in the capital Colombo - the assassination of the opposition United National Party (UNP) MP for Colombo District, T Maheswaran. He faced grave threat to his life following the instruction of the Ministry of Defence to the Inspector General of Police in December 2007 to withdraw personnel from the security units of several parliamentarians, including his security unit. This incident points to a systematic campaign of intimidation and terror aimed at opponents of the Sri Lankan government and human rights defenders.

Failure in human rights obligations prevents Sri Lanka's re-election to the UN Human Rights Council
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
The rejection of Sri Lanka's application to membership in the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is a clear expression of the international concern over the human rights and humanitarian crisis in Sri Lanka and a definitive call for appropriate and tangible steps to improve human rights in the island. It is also an acknowledgement of the miserable failure on the part of Sri Lanka to discharge its international obligations in relation to human rights and the lack of transparency and accountability in the government-established human rights mechanisms.

Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) records with sadness the passing away of Poopalapillai Sangaravel, the prominent personality among the expatriate Sri Lankan Tamil community in the United Kingdom, on 6 June 2008.

Since then, the TIC often drew from his vast knowledge and experience on issues relating to Sri Lanka, particularly in relation to the eastern part of the island.

UK's Premature Returns Endanger Safety of Asylum Seekers - 03-08-2007
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
Sri Lanka is faced with a situation of lawlessness of epidemic proportions. Such lawlessness is manifested by the continuing abductions, arbitrary arrests, enforced disappearances and large scale killings. In a climate of relentless violence, entire families have been wiped out. The law enforcement authorities have become dysfunctional and many policemen, including some high ranking officers have become partners in crime. UN officers estimated the number of killings in Sri Lanka in 2005 alone at 500. Between January 2006 and May 2007, human rights agencies estimated that 4,000 people were killed. In Jaffna alone, 13 people were shot dead between 8 July and 31 July 2007.

TIC- Briefing Note for UK MPs prepared on behalf of the Solidarity for Peace in Sri Lanka
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
The people of Sri Lanka have been ruled by Emergency Regulations for almost 30 out of the 58 years of independence and their rights have been systematically crushed. The land is now under Emergency rule, and the current draconian Emergency Regulations, which are primarily used against the Tamil community, have removed every tenet of democratic governance.

Sri Lanka-TIC writes to International Labour Organisation-11-05-2007
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
In a letter to Secretary General of the International Labour Organization (ILO) Juan Somavia on 11 May 2007, the Tamil Information Centre (TIC) expressed extreme concern over the deterioration in the situation of trade union leaders and other fundamental rights activists in Sri Lanka. The TIC said that trade union representatives increasingly faced threats, intimidation, abduction and disappearance and these indicated the suppression of trade unions, the freedom of expression and the freedom of association. Intimidation, threats, abduction and disappearances have been used to deal with opponents, including political opponents, trade union members and others speaking out justifiably for the rights of the people.

More than 80,000 people have been displaced in fighting following an offensive launched on 16 January 2007 in the Vaharai area of Batticaloa District by the Sri Lankan government forces against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Over 1,000 others have sustained serious injuries. Homes, public buildings and temples have been damaged or destroyed.
