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.

Note to UNHRC on HR-The international community must share responsibility in protecting and promoting human rights in Sri Lanka
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
The large-scale killings that are taking place in the north-east and southern parts are of grave concern to the people of Sri Lanka. The main concern here is arbitrary execution of Tamil civilians. It also concerns the execution of individuals without a right to trial, and disappearances. The security forces, Tamil paramilitary groups aligned to the security forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) are accused of carrying out the attacks on civilians. The Sri Lankan government is using the Tamil paramilitary groups to target Tamil civilians whom the intelligence services believe are supporters of the LTTE or have links to the LTTE ((See Annex 1 for details of some the killings from 1 November to 12 December 2006).
