The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) submitted an Information Note to members of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in September 2006 pointing out that democratic institutions in Sri Lanka have been stifled or destroyed by deliberate action of the government and human rights standards have deteriorated to an unacceptable and dangerous level. The second session of the new UN Council was held in Geneva from 18 September to 6 October 2006. This note has been widely used for lobby by human rights advocates.

The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) has drawn the attention of British State Minister for Immigration Tony McNulty to recent events in Sri Lanka. In a January 2006 letter to the Minister, the TIC urged review of the British government position relating to removal of failed asylum seekers. The TIC has received numerous appeals from Tamil asylum seekers, most of them vulnerable young men and women, whose applications for asylum have been turned down. They live in fear of deportation and in a state of uncertainty. Community meetings have observed that an increasing number are becoming destitute.

The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) is concerned over developments relating to the joint mechanism between the Sri Lankan government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam LTTE) for the provision of relief to the people affected by the tsunami in the north-east of the island. Most people affected by the disaster in the north-east have not received sufficient assistance to begin their economic and livelihood activities. Land allocation policies have not been resolved to enable the construction of permanent housing. The entire tsunami relief and reconstruction process has been turned into an exercise in political maneuvering and tactics.

The Millennium Development Goals Country Report 2005 by the Sri Lankan National Council for Economic Development (NCED) says that those who bore the brunt of the tsunami attack were the most vulnerable in society such as coastal communities and those in the North and East region. The percentage of the coastal population affected, ranges from an estimated 35% in Kilinochchi to 80% in Mullaitivu and 78% in Amparai. Less than 20% of the coastal population in the southern districts of Galle, Matara and Hambantota were affected. The tsunami affected the livelihoods of poor sectors such as coastal fishermen, workers in the informal sector, people servicing fisheries and tourist industries and small scale farmers, causing greater vulnerability to poverty.

The Indian Ocean region was gripped by panic when another massive underwater earthquake on 28 March 2005 devastated the Indonesian island of Nias. The death toll is said to be in the region of 1,000.

Thulasi - News Letter_Issue 2 -2004
Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013
There is grave concern over the internecine killings that are striking fear in hearts of the people in the Tamil homeland. Since the ceasefire agreement of 22 February 2002, more than 150 people have been murdered. Most of the dead are members or supporters of Tamil militant groups and they accuse the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). Since Col. Karuna broke away from the LTTE in March 2004, a number of LTTE members or supporters have also been killed. Most killings have been taken place in Batticaloa, but there have been assassinations in Colombo, Trincomalee, Jaffna and Mannar.
