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.
