Mata Hari May All what you have written are all fabricated diabolical lies. How can you write utter nonsense from where ever you exist, in such quick succession? How can you point fingers at the army or the government without finding true facts? Do you belong to the "diaspora" LTTE terrorist group, now being hounded by the US, Canada and the EU for nefarious activities?

I am very surprise how people without thinking shooting off their mouth accusing the Sri Lanka Authorities about these Tamil Canadian death. Let the authorities solve this crime with the Canadian authorities. The Tamils in Sri Lanka are very happy with the People and the Government. It is Idiotic unscrouplous mouth of the Tamil terrorist and diaspora that create lies and cause more mishap for all.Stop all the lies and come with some truth. Your everyday lies are disgusting.Be accountable and fair.

the tamils mustlearn a lesson from what happened to the LTTE. They must learn to live peacefully with all the races and NOT DEMAND IMPOSSIBLE THINGS LIKE DEVOLUTION, 13TH AMENDMENT which will be discarded into the garbage bin.

Tamils should be given civil administrative powers in North. Not police powers, banking powers and military powers etc. That would lead to a separate country

To expedite peace process there must be some semblance of peace to start with. GoSL has brain-washed the Sinhalese people into thinking that peace is equivalent to defeat. White-van abductions are rampant. Hindu temples and Muslim mosques are being destroyed and Buddhist viharas forcibly built instead. SL Army is deployed to guard the viharas. Tamils are living in open-prison conditions.

I wish the peace process would expedited in Sri Lanka.

I hope ,India and USA will help the Tamils in Sri Lanka. India and USA should beware of endless false promises emanating from the Rajapaksa Government in order to hoodwink them and milk the gullible.

Rajapaksa Government is bankrupt and desperate, so all the money for charitable aid in Sri Lanka are end up in Rajapaksa’s pockets due to his insatiable greed and corruption.

Recently Rajapaksa pleaded with the Tamil Diaspora to come back to Sri Lanka and invest.
One gullible Tamil trusted Rajapaksa lies and false promises and come back to Sri Lanka to invest

Now this Tamil is dead with his throat cut and his genitals mutilated. The killing was ordered by Rajapaksa because the Tamil dared to ask for his privately owned lands back His lands and other properties are now occupied by Sri Lanka Army
Top SL military hand alleged in killing Canadian Tamil in Vanni

Circumstantial evidences point to the hands of top level Sri Lanka military in the brutal killing of a Canadian Eezham Tamil who came to Vanni to claim his properties appropriated by the occupying military, news sources in Vanni revealed to TamilNet. The victim owned 8 commercially valuable buildings in line in Ki’linochchi town that were appropriated by the Sinhala military to be given in turn to a Colombo-based chain store that now dominates food business in the north. Through the occupying military, presidential sibling and SL Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has appropriated nearly 250 such commercially valuable properties in Ki’linochchi for his agenda of plunder and structural genocide of Eezham Tamils. The Canadian Tamil lost his life struggling with a genocidal mechanism installed by many world establishments including that of his own adopted country.

Ever since the Eezham Tamil victim Andrew Mahendrarajah Anthonippillai arrived in Vanni from Canada to negotiate getting back his properties from the occupying Sinhala Military, he was followed and his movements were closely monitored by the SL military intelligence.

The line of shops Mahendrarajah owned in Ki’linochchi near the Murukan Temple was handed over by the occupying Sinhala military to a Colombo business corporate Cargills Food City

The complex is worthy of crores of rupees and millions have been paid to top military brass in Colombo to appropriate the property on lease for an unspecified number of years, news sources in Vanni said, citing high-ranking officers of the occupying military in Vanni. Some of the lands of the victim were also taken over by the occupying military.

Mahendrarajah tried through various avenues to convince his case and to get back his property from the SL military.

SL Defence Ministry in Colombo finally agreed to ‘meet’ him and he was about to leave for Colombo with a hope that the matter would be favourably resolved.

But a Sinhala squad was closely monitoring him. He ignored the warnings of his friends who had noticed shady characters following him.

In fact, he told his friends not to worry, since he had been given with an appointment to meet the top most at the SL Defence Ministry. The top most meant that he had finally been given with a chance to take up his case with Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, he told his friends.

His Defence Ministry appointment in Colombo was scheduled for Tuesday this week, but he was found brutally killed by a squad on Friday last week at Kaagncheepuram Lane, near Paranthan Junction in Ki’linochchi.

The squad used mattock (Ma’n-veddi) for the brutal murder and the male organ was cut off

But there were people who have seen the killing. The squad warned them in ‘broken Tamil’ that they would meet the same fate if intervene or reveal the killing.
