Publication: TIC Statement - Sri Lanka APRC Politics after 60 years of Independence-04-02-2008
Posted Date: 22/04/2013 (Monday)
The proposals of the All Party Representative Committee (APRC) submitted to President Mahinda Rajapakse in January 2008 have accentuated Tamil fears about the intentions of the Sri Lankan government in finding a solution to the conflict that has resulted in widespread human suffering. The APRC's actions appear to be in unison with the government's preference of a military solution rather than a negotiated political settlement.

Publication: Sri Lanka-Withdrawal from CFA will result in war against civilians-08-01-08
Posted Date: 22/04/2013 (Monday)
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.

Publication: Sri Lanka - New direction needed to arrest chaos
Posted Date: 22/04/2013 (Monday)
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.

Posted Date: 22/04/2013 (Monday)
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.
