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).

Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
The recent decision by the Sub-Committee on Accreditation of the International Co-ordinating Committee of National Human Rights Institutions (ICC) to downgrade the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission (SLHRC) from Status A to Status B is an unequivocal message to Sri Lanka from the international community that its human rights conduct is unacceptable and if it wishes to remain part of the civilized nations, then it must respect the universal issues of human rights and democracy.

Abduction of Sinhalese leftist journalists underlines the deepening chaos in Sri Lanka
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
M. A. Sisira Priyankara, trade union activist and editor of the monthly newspaper Akuna, Nihal Serasinghe, member of the railway trade union Dumriya Kamkaru Ekathuva and Lalith Seneviratne were abducted on 5 February in Colombo, allegedly by the security forces. These abductions have outraged the Tamil, Sinhala and Muslim intellectuals, journalists, community leaders as well as many ordinary citizens of Sri Lanka. The Tamil Information Centre (TIC) is gravely concerned for their safety. So far, no law enforcement authority has claimed responsibility. We deplore these actions which endanger the lives of journalists and call on the government to launch an immediate impartial investigation into abductions by security forces.

A Tribute to Ketheesh Loganathan - A martyr in the Struggle for Peace-31-03-2007
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
Ketheesh Loganathan was, in the best and positive sense, an idealist. He believed passionately in justice, equality and solidarity of people promoting peace in Sri Lanka. Ketheesh's assassination on 12 August 2006 shocked us all. The Tamil Information Centre strongly condemned that senseless act of violence and hatred, which deprived all of us a remarkable and a visionary leader who loved his people. He was assassinated for believing in a future without bloodshed, a future of tolerance and coexistence. He pursued the path of peace even when it did not bring him popularity. He paid a very high price for his pursuit of peace for all of us.

A Note on the arrest of Tamils on LTTE charges in Britain on 21 June 2007
Uploaded Date: 22/04/2013
On 28 February 2001, the British Home Secretary included the LTTE in the list of proscribed organizations under the Terrorism Act 2000. The ban on the LTTE in Britain came into force on 29 March 2001. A proscribed organization or any person affected by the ban may appeal to the Home Secretary for the removal of the ban. If such an appeal is rejected, an application for review may be made to a tribunal known as the Proscribed Organizations Appeal Commission. Appeal on a point of law from the decision of the Commission lies to the Court of Appeal.
