The Federation of National Organizations states that the country is now facing a time that is more decisive than the time during the war. Convenor of the Federation Professor Gunadasa Amarasekera made this statement while participating in a ceremony in Colombo yesterday. Several representatives participated in the event titled ‘Let us not allow a new Eelam plan’.
To compliment Sri Lanka’s Military achievements Tamils must live without Caste and Class say Mullaitivu Tamils
Anyone keen to know and understand the dynamics of Sri Lanka’s conflict will need to also realize that the cries of discrimination by the Sinhalese was an orchestrated plan to keep hidden from the world the fact that Tamils were and wanted to continue to remain divided by caste and class so that only a handful of Tamils would between themselves enjoy education, social and political development.
LTTE international network had strengthened human smuggling activities in Sri Lanka after the war, international terrorism expert Prof Rohan Gunaratna said.
Gunaratna who is also head of the International Center for Political Violence and Terrorism Research (ICPVTR)] at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore said the phase of human smuggling changed after 2009 when the LTTE focused on smuggling its remainning memebrs in the country to several countries in Asia and the West.
Time was when the Sri Lanka Navy had to concentrate only on protecting this country’s national security interests. It accomplished the Herculean task of bringing the LTTE’s arms smuggling operations to an end and neutralising the Sea Tigers well ahead of the conclusion of the war, though Prabhakaran used to boast that the final battle for Eelam would be fought not on land but at sea. The Navy sank several floating warehouses of the LTTE in daring operations against tremendous odds and successfully destroyed Prabhakaran’s suicide boat squadron which had been thought to be invincible.
