Publication: A Note on the European Union Ban on the LTTE
Posted Date: 21/04/2013 (Sunday)
The European Union (EU) decided on 29 May 2006 to include the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in its list of terrorist organizations. The LTTE has already been banned in several other countries including the UK, India and the US. The ban on the LTTE is an issue of concern to the Tamil people of Sri Lanka. Many people are apprehensive that it may have an adverse impact on the peace process and encourage anti-peace elements within and outside Sri Lanka. The TIC has received many enquiries about the ban. This paper contains some basic information about the EU and the listing of the LTTE, particularly for the use of lobbyists and campaigners.
Publication: A Note on Sri Lanka - Failure of Governance and Destruction of Democracy
Posted Date: 21/04/2013 (Sunday)
Sri Lanka claims to be a democracy and the Sri Lankan Constitution says that the country ‘shall be known as the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka’. The claim is ludicrous in light of events in the island. Ordinary people in Sri Lanka at the heart of events, experience the wrecking of democratic principles and democratic institutions every day. The Sri Lankan government continues to violate every democratic principle and shows little regard for democratic institutions.

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.

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.

Posted Date: 21/04/2013 (Sunday)
The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) strongly condemns the escalating political killings in Sri Lanka, which may plunge the country into the abyss of war and chaos. It's deplorable that people of all walks of defenders, social and community workers, NGO staff, lowers, students, women, educators, priests and members of political parties, progressive organizations and trade unions. With then die their dreams, idealism, commitment, courage, youth, love and hope. A part of us perishes with them and the hopes and dreams of communities and the nation they represent are shattered.

Posted Date: 21/04/2013 (Sunday)
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.

Posted Date: 21/04/2013 (Sunday)
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. Tsunami warnings were issued in the region, including in Sri Lanka, India and Malaysia and the people in coastal areas were quickly evacuated to safer places.
