Intl community, Tiger rump ignore LTTE atrocities - Dr Fernandopulle
MP Dr Sudarshani Fernandopulle said she opposes the stance taken by
the West, Europe and the international community on the assassination of
her husband, former Highways and Road Development Minister Jeyaraj
Fernandopulle and other murders carried out by the LTTE.
Dr Fernandopulle told the Daily News yesterday that the international
community and others always side with the diaspora and talk about the
final days of the humanitarian operation and LTTE terrorists killed
during the past, but not about the victims of the LTTE.
“The LTTE killed Highways and Road Development Minister Jeyaraj
Fernandopulle, Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadiragamar, scholar Dr Neelan
Thiruchelvam and a large number of people. They killed pregnant mothers,
innocent children, elders, the disabled and civilians. But the
international community never talks about such killings,” she said.
Dr Fernandopulle said the West, Europe and sections of the
international community are indirectly promoting terrorism and
supporting terrorists by not talking about the victims of the LTTE and
only talking about the last days of the humanitarian operation, while
being biased towards the diaspora.
“Their practice can create new problems for the Tamil community now
living in peace and harmony in Sri Lanka,” she said.
Dr Fernandopulle said that the international community never talks
about or points finger at the US and other powerful countries for
violating human rights in Iraq, Afghanistan and other nations. “Since
Sri Lanka is a small country, they point fingers at us,” she said.
