A World Without Persecution
Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013
We are gratified for the acknowledgement by the Hague Appeal for Peace Conference that peace is a human right. Peace is threatened when human rights are violated. Where there is injustice, there is a seed for conflict. The protection of rights of individuals to think freely, to express themselves without fear, to associate freely with others, to disseminate their thoughts freely and to determine their own destiny is essential to the preservation of world peace.

Mass Graves in Tamil homeland in Sri Lanka
Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013
On 3 July 1998, five Sri Lankan soldiers were convicted of the rape and murder of 18 year-old Tamil schoolgirl, Krishanthy Kumarasamy, her mother, 16 year-old brother and a neighbor on 7 September 1996. They were sentenced to death. The judgment, which has been referred to as a "Landmark Judgment", by human rights organizations, came in the wake of constant pressure on the Sri Lankan government by the international community to protect human rights and end the climate of impunity widely enjoyed by the security forces.

Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013
The tragic death of Dr Neelan Tiruchelvam in Colombo has caused great shock, dismay and concern at the Tamil Information Centre. Those responsible for the brutal murder are yet to be identified but with the passing of time the truth may be revealed.

Chief Minister Supports Clemency
Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Dr M Karunanidhi, answering questions at a press conference to day expressed the view that clemency and commutation of the death sentence to life-imprisonment to the four Tamils in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case were appropriate. He said that international opinion is increasingly against the death penalty and it is appropriate that consideration is given to this concern of the international community even to this case. He also has expressed the opinion that life sentence to the accused instead of the death sentence would enable offenders to repent and realise the wrongfulness of their actions.

Appealing for Clemancy and Calling for an end to the death penalty is the right thing to do
Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013
The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) made an appeal on 8 October, for clemency and commutation of the death sentence on four people in the Rajiv Gandhi murder case. The TIC’s appeal for clemency was in furtherance of a commitment to the value and dignity of human life and the belief that human life is sacred. In this respect, the killing of the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and 16 others including nine police officers in Sriperumpudur in Tamil Nadu in India on 21 May 1991 was equally callous and cruel and the offenders deserve to be punished.

A message into the future
Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013
As the new Millennium dawns there is optimism and hope for a fresh beginning transcending the barriers causing human suffering. It is wonderful to affirm - "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me." Bur resolutions are not enough. Peace requires active engagement, strength and determination in expressing compassion and civility whether as an individual a community or a nation. It rarely depends on external circumstances. Peace begins within us. It appears in simple ways and in ordinary places.

Sri Lanka celebrates independence while Tamils struggle for human rights
Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013
Sri Lanka is poised to celebrate the 50th anniversary of independence on 4 February. The Tamil people are distressed that half a century of independence has failed to secure the advancement of all the people in the island. Instead, independence has consistently marginalised the Tamil community resulting in an armed struggle and the quest for autonomy for the Tamil people.
