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.

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.

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.

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.
