HNB Kilinochchi Branch – Commemorating proscribed LTTE during office hours!
Posted on May 22nd, 2018

The social media relayed 2 horrifying photos of the staff of HNB Branch Kilinochchi commemorating dead LTTE terrorists. Candles were lit in front of an image that had printed Remembering the Tamil Genocide” May 18 War Crimes Day” this comes in the backdrop of a meek & ineffective government allowing the commemoration of a banned terrorist group publicly & even inside the state run Jaffna university. It therefore comes as no surprise when a leading bank in which the Sri Lankan state also has shares is actually commemorating the LTTE during office hours!

The action being taken by the HNB top management against the Manager & the staff is one in which the public will no doubt be watching.

Many have openly stated that the most likely outcome is that the staff member who released the photos will end up the victim & the manager may get a promotion or transfer. Such is the outcome of justice nowadays. If such does happen, it seriously should make depositors to re-evaluate whether they can faith in such a bank. The bank is duty-bound to publicize its findings & issue a public statement in this regard.

Let us not forget, the LTTE started out in the early 1980s by robbing banks. The LTTE is renowned for its ability to gather information on people, their assets & they have in the past kidnapped & sought ransom.

LTTE extortion is rampant in the West in countries like UK, Canada, France & even US where Tamil people are intimidated to monthly donate to the LTTE kitty, those that do not donate, have ended up dead or physically injured.

Anyone doubting this or challenging this may first like to go through Human Rights Watch report

In Canada according to the Globe & Mail paper Tamils have to pay $10,000 while Tamil entrepreneurs pay $100,000 each.

We can also recall LTTE had its own Tamileelam bank!

The knowledge of who has how much comes in handy for LTTE to make such demands. This is where the general public must take the commemoration of the LTTE dead inside a leading bank seriously. We have to seriously now wonder how much of banking information is being leaked to external forces of customer accounts by these banking staff.

In UK one Arunesh Thangarajah, 28, has been stabbed to death. When MP Siobhain McDonagh a long time LTTE sympathizer issues a statement on this we have to wonder at the LTTE connections!

If people can commemorate a banned terrorist organization during office hours – what else can they be not capable of doing! People’s minds are certainly working.

Customers cannot be faulted for having fears of their confidential banking information being leaked to terror sources & even others as a result of this action.

That the Manager has been bold enough to arrange the commemoration for LTTE preparing candles & printing posters while some statement has been read out as can be seen in the photo relayed has more questions than answers. HNB must provide customers & the public answers.

For a Manager to have the guts to actually arrange something of this nature is beyond comprehension – even the security guard is taking part as can be seen from the photo. What is also alarming is that this would have been planned some days in advance, if so why did no one in the staff inform the head office or make an official complaint against it or was such a complaint made & was it ignored. Were there similar commemorations in any of the other 251 HNB branches – the questions are certainly piling.

These are no exaggerations and people commenting on the photo & voicing their views & objections cannot be faulted.

HNB management not only has to take immediate action but they must tender a public apology in particular to all depositors & anyone dealing with HNB who are fast losing confidence in the bank & issue a statement to the effect that May 18 is NO WAR CRIMES DAY, It is NO TAMIL GENOCIDE DAY.

If a bank cannot light a single candle for the soldiers that defeated a terrorist movement, saved close to 300,000 Tamils then they most certainly cannot be allowed to commemorate the LTTE movement that killed thousands of innocent people over 30 years.

If anyone wants to mourn even a terrorist they have all the freedom to do so privately inside their own homes without public display and this is why we are against the commemorations being held openly which are pretending to claim it is to mourn innocent civilians but in reality it is the LTTE dead because LTTE families are taking part, LTTE insignia are being used – LTTE flags, LTTE emblems etc which completely nullifies their claim.

In all probability these LTTE families given that they are from low caste & poor homes must be taking part in these commemorations having being promised some remuneration for appearing for these public tamashas to make political pressure on a very weak, meek & spineless government. Apart from a few hundred present, we do not see thousands representing the supposed to be killed 40,000!

There is no doubt that innocent Tamils were roped into becoming LTTE cadres. It is also true that the majority of Tamils who are now living abroad did so riding on the discrimination tag & wish to have some sort of trouble continuing in order to obtain their refugee status etc. Invariably these LTTErs become the pawns for a selfish game & sadly they are being used by their own people. All LTTE cadres were low caste & from poor families. How many of those who are now enjoying life & holding foreign passports are actually looking after at least one LTTE family except to fund annual tamashas with another agenda in mind?

What are the connections to the LTTE of this Kilinochchi bank manager & the rest of the staff. LTTE being proscribed the State must also conduct its own investigations!

    Thank you Shenali!

    This is top level Investigative journalism!!

    One gets really frustrated by looking at the poster! How come all these ungrateful people call it a Tamil Genocide day?? In fact it was a Tamil Liberation day from the clutches of killer Velu.

    It is Sinhalese who commemorate the ending of Sinhalese Genocide day in the North and East and bordering villages by the killer Velu and the Gang.

  2. Hiranthe Says:

    It is THE Sinhalese who “SHOULD” commemorate the ending of Sinhalese Genocide day in the North and East and bordering villages.

  3. ranjit Says:

    Shenali our blood boils when we see these kind of photos day after day thru TV channels and from media. This is outrageous and asking for trouble by those LTTE BUTCHERS. Our gutless, treacherous Yamapalanaya leaders do not utter a word or give a statement. It’s a mystery. Damn these yamaballo cowards. I can smell trouble not far away. We the sinhala buddhists and the rest who loves this nation must be prepared to respond to these LTTE murderers who are asking trouble by promoting terrorism again.

  4. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    This traitor foreigner cancer and its catholic tigers of tamil drealam of barrel man hitler mala paharan killed 1000s of
    Sinhalese. What do you call that traitor low lives? Sinhalese have been too good for these low lives. What you need is
    a dictator. Even if you live under mussies you keep your traitor mouths shut and tails between legs and behave like
    dogs. That’s what you need. Go live in akurana or beruwala you foreigner cancers and see how you will be treated.
    Traitor foreigner cancers! Go to tn where you came from or follow a true religion which teaches you how to live
    without being too greedy! These actions coming from the religions of conveniences you follow in this scientific age
    which has shown what you believe doesn’t make any sense at all.

    Remembering the Tamil Genocide” May 18 War Crimes Day” & Commemorating proscribed LTTE – Two different matters.

    I am sure You would not understand the different ,is it too much expecting from Our Sakodaya ????

    t is THE Sinhalese who “SHOULD” commemorate the ending of Sinhalese Genocide day in the North and East and bordering villages.- I Tamil fully agreed with you My Chignkala Sakotharam !!!! why you not doing ? do not you have any respect for your own sinhala people . at least can you learn any thing We-Tamils ???

  6. Christie Says:

    It is difficult to Genocide 75 million of Tamils world wide.

    What is actually happening is the genocide of the Sinhalese.

    With the HNB what we can do is not to deal with the bank for a while.

    But then these Indian parasites are the richest in the country and they have the money to invest.

    By the way HNB was set up to serve the Indian Colonial Parasites in the plantations.

    Shenali some Tamils may extort money from other Tamis.

    But the truth is Tamils and some times other Indians voluntarily contribute to Tamil organisations.

    For example who funds Yasmin Sooka? The Human Rights woman in South Africa a Colonial Parasite there.

  7. helaya Says:

    Thanks Senali, These idiots have jobs because they were liberated by our heroes. If they still under maniac Praba, they do not have any jobs like this. It is sad and blood boiling to see these things. any Sinhala newspapers carrying this news. If not action must be taken to bring mater to public.

  8. charithsls Says:

    Look at Shenali’s very last two lines. Does that not tell a story? UNP & Christians combination sometimes is deadly to us.
    Wasn’t there someone called JJ who went to courts to stop army’s progress in the war?

  9. Caesar Says:

    All Sinhalese should avoid HNB !

    HNB is Anti Sinhela – Anti Buddhist bank owned and controlled by Tamils and Muslims. They are Tiger proxies in money laundering and lending majority Sinhela money to Muslims at no interest while Sinhela people have to pay high interest rate to feed the bank.

    This is no doubt LTTE brother !

  10. Dilrook Says:

    As a former customer of HNB, I wrote to them and asked for their view. Their reply petrified me!

    [Quote] Dear Valued Customer.

    This would be the 18th May remembrance day for the lives lost in the war.

    We should seriously boycott HNB.

    This News should spread all across the island.

  14. Ananda-USA Says:

    I SHUT DOWN my bank account at HNB. HNB was TOO BANK FEE HAPPY anyway!

    I have also asked several others who I help financially, to shut down their accounts and move to the same bank to which I moved my account.

    DAMN ME if I am going let HNB earn money from me, and then SCREW MY PEOPLE as well!

    Let us SPAWN a MASSIVE PROTEST AGAINST HNB that will bring HNB to its KNEES!

  15. NAK Says:

    HNB should be avoided.

  16. Caesar Says:

    Look at the board of directors !
    Tamils and Muslims

  17. samurai Says:

    Why is it that if the event at the HNB Kilinochchi branch was, “This would be the 18th May remembrance day for lives lost in the war,” did they have a framed photo stating, REMEMBERING THE TAMIL GENOCIDE MAY 18 with an image of a lion with blood dripping from the sword it is carrying and dead bodies of a man and woman in a pool of blood?

    Does it not mean that the HNB Kilinochchi branch is trying to mislead the world saying that right through the years from 1983 to 2009 there was no war against the LTTE but simply a massacre of innocent Tamil civilians by Sinhalase?

    Whom is the HNB trying to hoodwink?

  18. SA Kumar Says:

    This would be the 18th May remembrance day for the lives lost in the war.- That is fine HNB manger BUT what in back ground banner say” Tamil genocide” even though OUR Bhuddist Sinhela forces liberated 297,000 of We-Demila (who fought last 33 years against them ) & gave us 3 meals per day for 3 years in electiced wired IDP camps in OUR Chignkala Theevu than realised with out any charges !!!

    please ask HNB customers to clarify .

  19. SA Kumar Says:

    samurai
    1983 to 2009 there was no war against the LTTE but simply a massacre of innocent Tamil civilians by Sinhalase? spot on !

    1956 to 1983 what Sinhalase done to Tamil, We both know very well !
