British Shadow Minister calls for justice and Tamil self-determination

British Shadow Minister for Transport Sam Tarry has reiterated his support for the self-determination of Tamils and justice for the atrocities they faced, as part of his campaign for reselection as MP for Ilford South in London.

The lawmaker noted that he will "always stand by the Tamil people in their continued struggle for justice, an end to oppression and their fundamental right to self-determination" in a Facebook post this morning, alongside a flyer released as part of his campaign.

The statement comes ahead of internal ward reselection meetings in coming days.

Tarry has previously spoken in support of Tamil rights, calling for demilitarisation of the Tamil homeland and an international accountability mechanism for mass atrocities.



We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
