Police investigations into a complaint that a group of more than 50 persons led by Opposition and TNA Leader R Sampanthan forcibly entering an army camp at Paravipachchan in Kilinochchi on April 16 have been stalled as the army has been ordered not to pursue the case.

Police said yesterday that officers of the Paravipachchcan camp had been summoned to Kilinochchi police to record their statements on the incident but the camp officers declined to cooperate saying that they had been instructed not to proceed with the case.

A group of more than 50 persons including opposition and TNA Leader R Sampanthan, TNA MPs S Sritharan, and MA Sumanthiran entered the Paravipachchan camp around 3.00 pm on April 16 without obtaining prior permission. They remained in the camp premises for several hours.

Following the incident army lodged a complaint with the Kilinochchi police and another complaint with the Senior DIG of the Northern Range.

A special team of policemen under an ASP was appointed to investigate the incident. The officers and men of the Paravipachchan camp were asked to visit the Kilinochchi police to make statements.

Police said they could not proceed without statements from camp authorities and men who were manning the entry point to the camp.

    What are the elected leaders doing? Isn’t the puppet, still the executive president. Does he know what the electorate expect of him? Ranil would be singing “Aju Thapara”. In Weerawansa’ s words “what a baana did we elect”?

  2. Ananda-USA Says:

    TNA leaders are ALREADY ACTING as if they are in command of a Sovereign State in the NPC!

    We can expect more high handedness in the future as they become even more emboldened by the weakness and pliability of the Yahapalanaya GoSL to push the envelope every day in every way for more and more power!


    Sri Lanka police probe Opposition Leader allegedly entering an Army camp
    Mon, Apr 25, 2016, 11:07 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Apr 25, Colombo: Sri Lanka Police in Kilinochchi have launched an investigation into an incident where the Leader of Opposition and major Tamil party, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) R. Sampanthan and several other TNA members have allegedly entered an Army camp in the Kilinochchi- Parawipanjaan area by force, according to a local media report.

    Mr. Sampanthan along with MPs S. Sritharan and M. A Sumanthiran are alleged of attempting to enter the Gajaba Regiment in the Parawipanjaan area following a meeting at their party office on the 16th of April, Hiru FM reported.

    The Commanding officer of the camp and a few others had filed a complaint regarding the matter to the police.

    The army camp under the Gajaba Regiment had reportedly been a financial division of the LTTE during the war.

    Expressing views on the incident at a media briefing, MP Udaya Gammanpila said the police should take necessary action to arrest the Opposition Leader and the group for attempting to enter an Army camp by force.

  3. Dham Says:

    Why did not Army removed them by force?
    This is the proper question to be asked. It is the same with LTTE. LTTE’s duty is to kill Sinhalese and Army’s duty is to stop it. If police caught the killer of Duraiappa there is no LTTE now.
    Why did they let them in ?

  4. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:


    What if all these buggers entered the Army Camp and leveled the place killing all the Army Personnel ? DAMN IT.

    Does anyone remembers how LTTE massacred Sinhala war heroes in thousands in Army camps during LTTE terrorism? This can happened again if our backboneless current leaders stay in power.During MR time these Tamil traitors never utter a word because they were afraid of the strong Govt but see today they are dancing like wolves behind the sheep clothing. We should rally behind MR to have a strong Govt to stop these evil conspirators Tamils and Muslims before they bring harm to our peoples and the country.

    I called upon police Vel Vidane to arrest the wrongdoers and bring them to justice including John Bass for Wattala incident and Champaka for injuring a young boy in an accident, also Central bank robbers including the Finance Minister. In his first press conference the new IGP acted like the same Vel Vidane who became a Minister through the back ally talking big as if he was the Billy the kid.Only useless tough talk by the current leaders but no results just abusing people and taking revenge from opponents. Show how strong we the Opposition are on May 1st by attending MR rally on May day. Long live the Sinhala nation.

    Sri Lanka Tamil leaders and Tamil Nadu leaders are COLLUDING TOGETHER with the SAME GOAL: Create an EELAM and later ANNEX to India as a part of a GREATER TAMIL NADU.

    When Jayalalitha says “her party would take “continuous steps” to attain a separate Eelam for Tamils in Sri Lanka” … BELIEVE HER! The GoSL MUST TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY and ACT to REPEAL the 13th Amendment and ABOLISH ALL Provincial Councils.

    If the Yahapalanaya Government DOES NOT ACT, then the PEOPLE of Sri Lanka MUST ACT to OUST this Government and bring in a Government THAT WILL ACT to DEFEND and PROTECT our Motherland.

    In the Mein Kampf (ie, “my struggle”) Hitler wrote in Spandau Prison where he was imprisoned after the abortive “beer-hall” Munich putsch, he gave FAIR WARNING to Europe what he intended to do if he is allowed to grab power.

    When he did grab power by engineering labor and political unrest in Germany, he began to rearm Germany and execute his promised plan. Yet, the leaders of Europe vacillated and oscillated, dillied and dallied, NOT ACTING WHILE THEY COULD.

    When they decided to ACT five years later, it was TOO LATE …. Germany had rearmed, developed a massive war machine, marched into Alsace-Lorraine, and militarized the Rhineland. Their VACILLATION and INDECISION reaped Europe the Second World War.

    Today, Sri Lankan leaders are likewise VACILLATING INDECISIVELY, and DILLY-DALLYING as foreign and local enemies and former terrorists, CRUSHINGLY DEFEATED just 7 years ago, are ONCE AGAIN THREATENING to DISMEMBER Sri Lanka and gain the EELAM they lost in WAR, through subterfuge and international intervention in PEACE!

    When the Tamil Insurgency was in full swing, we ignored it, minimized its threat until it overcame our resources to combat it, and never mobilized fully to confront and defeat it in a few short years until our IDIOTIC leaders came to believe that the LTTE COULD NOT BE MILITARILY DEFEATED! And then arose from that abject morass of DEFEATISM Mahinda Rajapaksa and his Patriotic Forces to PROVE that FALSE!

    Now, when the defeated Tamil terrorists, their political proxies in Sri Lanka, Indian Tamil politicians, and the Western Powers who supported the Tamil separatism to the HILT, are promising RENEWED AGRESSION and DISMEMBERMENT of our Motherland, we find that those same DEFEATIST LEADERS who could not CONFRONT the LTTE and win, are in CONTROL of Sri Lanka’s Government. ONCE AGAIN, these ASININE LEADERS are preaching RECONCILIATION & DEFEATISM having LEARNED NOTHING by our collective experience of the EELAM CONFLICT, are PRETENDING as if a DESTRUCTIVE WAR spanning 30-long and bloody years had NEVER HAPPENED, and that FANATICAL ENEMIES can be DISSUADED from their DESTRUCTIVE PATH by “Reconciliation”!

    If that were true, Hitler would not have launched World War II in Europe after the CRUSHING DEFEAT Germany suffered in World War I. As in Europe on the eve of World War II, with ASININE Leaders such as Britain’s Chamberlain and France’s Daladier counseling appeasement, the Yahapalanaya leaders are counseling appeasement as Sri Lanka’s enemies gather strength and war clouds darken the horizon.

    AWAKEN from your 7-year slumber in peace and security, O Patriots of Lanka, the ENEMY IS ONCE AGAIN AT THE GATES! RISE to DEFEND & PROTECT your Motherland as our revered ancestors did in their day! Do not let our TRAITORS hand over our Motherland to our ENEMIES!

    Tamil Nadu Chief Minister to take ‘continuous steps’ to attain a separate state for Tamils in Sri Lanka
    Sun, Apr 24, 2016, 09:31 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Apr 24, Tiruchirappalli: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK party leader has asserted that her party would take “continuous steps” to attain a separate Eelam for Tamils in Sri Lanka so that they can live with full freedom and self-respect.

    Addressing election rally in Tiruchi, the Chief Minister demanded that the central Indian government grant dual citizenship for Sri Lankan Tamil refugees living in her state, PTI reported.

    “We will urge the central government to confer dual citizenship on Sri Lankan Tamils living here so that they can easily get job opportunities,” she said.

    Jayalalithaa said she has been continuously demanding an independent, international probe over war crimes and alleged genocide against Tamils in Sri Lanka.

    Attacking her arch rival DMK party, led by Karunanidhi, over the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, she alleged that DMK and Congress were together responsible for the destruction of Sri Lankan Tamils.

    Noting that Sri Lankan Tamils have for long been living in and outside camps in Tamil Nadu, she said her regime was giving them all facilities. She added that her government opposed the central government when they tried to repatriate people who were born to refugees and raised in the state.

    She stressed that her party’s policy was that any repatriation should be voluntary and based on the choice of refugees “after the situation in Sri Lanka, including security aspects changes fully, (for the better)”.

    Jayalalithaa accused rival DMK of staging “dramas” over the Tamil issue against their interests and said the DMK chief Karunanidhi, betrayed Tamils not only in Tamil Nadu but also in Sri Lanka.

    She recalled that the Tamil Nadu Assembly had passed several resolutions on the Sri Lankan issue moved by her. Some of these included her demand for economic sanctions against Sri Lanka, an international probe against ‘war crimes’ and another related to a referendum (that she wanted to be sponsored by India in the UN forum) among Tamils on the question of a separate Eelam (Tamil homeland).

    Has the sentry done his job he should be sacked immediately if not ordered by his seniors. Should not the Camp Commander or Army Commander resign in disgust? Where is MS the supreme leader, what a puppet at the helm ,we all know what next. The post incident interview to BBC justifying their actions is worse. The immediate response should be to boycott their rally in Galle & rally round Joint Opposition.

  10. Charles Says:

    No reconciliation is possible with this b**t**ds. Rajapakse was the only great leader who could have managed them despite the Western threats. But the mistake he did was not to remove the 13 A and ban TNA on the 20 May, 2009. WXe are suffering because of that.

    from asking separate state for the immigrants. Now traitor yamapallan with stick in the mud-firm maru
    sira anything is possible they think. That’s why they have started their break up Sri Lanka campaign.

    Traitor sampanthan how about leaving your lot from Colombo? How about claiming batticaloa from the
    mussies? Too tough? Jaathi dhrohee xxxx! Only contribution to our country from these traitors are
    treachery and killing unarmed Sinhalese including women, children and monks!

    Never happy

  17. Fran Diaz Says:

    Most Tamil leaders have proven that they do not care HOW they get closer to Eelam, so long as the action and attention plus Blame of the Caste War is on Sri Lanka !

    See how they have operated over the eons of time – no need for more proof.

    Sri Lanka has made herself vulnerable via poor legislation re the Tamil Language and INDIAN bullying with the illegal 13-A, making Lanka the place to play games with for Breakaway sub-state Tamil Nadu.

    Tamil Nadu is always more important for INDIA than Lanka. For INDIA, making Tamil Nadu come back to the INDIAN fold is more important than keeping Lanka intact.

    There are subtle Games going on here. “Divide & Rule” Sri Lanka game is afoot on a large scale.

    Address the Root Causes.

    Many Sri Lankans are gravely concerned about the TNA proposal to partition Sri Lanka into four pieces with a huge chunk (28% of the land area, 66% of the coastline and 66% of the ocean comprising the North and the East of Sri Lanka) going to the TNA racists and separatists as a merged North East federal state (but craftily disguised as ‘unitary’) with full powers.

    We are wondering why did over 43,000 both Sri Lankan Forces and civilians die at the hands of the LTTE and that megalomaniac Prabhakaran, if now, the TNA is being handed over an ‘Eelam’ so easily constitutionally?

    When looking at a GIS Map of Sri Lanka, it is amply clear that most of the forested areas of Sri Lanka are situated in the North and the East. Do not these forests belong to all the citizens of Sri Lanka? Do not the same principle apply to the ocean too or even the whole island, that the oceans and the whole island belong to all the people of Sri Lanka? Mr. Vigneshwaran has ‘created’ a fake history (stating that Tamils lived in Sri Lanka for 2000 years). Yet, there are no ancient ruins in Jaffna, in the North nor any ancient Dravidian writing to prove these fake claims. History of the Tamils commence mainly with the Dutch and the British bringing in large numbers of people from Tamil Nadu to work in tobacco plantations commenced by the Dutch and the British. There was the so called Jaffna Kingdom set up by an invader just prior to that but then Jaffna was only very sparsely populated. Our question is, can people such as Mr. Vigneshwaran ‘create’ his own fake history like this? He is ignoring the many Buddhist ruins, the many ancient Buddha statues, ancient Sinhala prakrit writing, the many ancient irrigation reservoirs built by Sinhala kings in the North and the East which proves an earlier indigenous Sinhala habitation in the North and all over the island. We would like to tell Mr. Vigneshwaran to be objective when it comes to history and archaeology and accept once and for all the fact that the Sinhala people lived all over the island for thousands of years and continue to do so. I would like Mr. Vigneshwaran to note that the provincial boundaries were drawn up by British colonialists for their administrative purposes with no input whatsoever from the Sinhala people and does not tally at all with the earlier history of the island which was unitary in nature.

    The Kandyan Kingdom (1400AD-1815) comprised almost all of the island inclusive of the East and almost all of the North. The earlier Kingdom of Rajarata (600BC-1400 AD) comprised the North Central, North Western, Northern and Eastern Provinces or the dry zone of Sri Lanka.

    We are gravely concerned regarding the drawing up of a new constitution where due to the pressure of the TNA, the US, EU, UK, Canada, Norway, Sri Lanka is in grave danger of being divided up on ethnic lines into four, five or even six different pieces. Is this not crazy?

    The TNA proposals were drawn up by experts which the TNA hired from the UK, Canada, Belgium, Canada, US and the like. Is this not an interference in Sri Lanka’s internal affairs by foreign powers, even to the extent of trying to draw up Sri Lanka’s constitution?

    Can any organization in Sri Lanka go to the supreme court and stop, once and for all, the merger of the North and the East since it is critical to stop this once and for all? Can any organization in Sri Lanka also go to the supreme court and stop, once and for all the, dividing up of this small island on ethnic or any other lines?

    The only way to stop this madness is to go to the supreme court and get a verdict which would prohibit the merger of any provinces and to stop once and for all the dismemberment of this small island on ethnic or any other lines.

    I bet my bottom dolar the trio will not take any action against those traitors because of the fear of losing tamil votes. Now MR must realise why I planned to stop TNA and 13A when they had the 2/3 rd majority. MR is also fully answerable for this Tamil people’s bash and kill sinhalaya and Sinhala army. It was only Sinhala buddhist forces with the police who crushed the Tamil terrorists. Did Sinhala catholicks join them let alone the muslims. Only after Bathudin opened his mouth the Sinhala Battaramullos opened their eyes. Sampanthan, Vigneswaran and the Racist Tamils must be stopped no matter what. What are those big mouthed prelates doing? Nip it in the bud before our War heros wake up. I have no doubt RW will take the side of Sampanthan. Chase the BASTD out from the leadership of the opposition and desolve all the PS specially the North. If you tolerate this nonsence the second Tamil war is imminant.
