British Tory MPs due to visit Jaffna – Daily Mirror

A delegation of British Conservative MPs is expected to visit Jaffna to look at concerns about high levels of military personnel, reported the Daily Mirror.

Presidential advisor Arun Thambimuttu said ten Tory Members of Parliament, including former defence secretary Liam Fox, MP for Croydon South Richard Ottaway and MP for Enfield North, Nick De Bois, were invited to visit the north of the island during a recent meeting in London to monitor the situation themselves.

David Amess (Southend West), Guto Bebb (Aberconwy), Alun Cairns (Vale of Glamorgan), Alan Duncan (Rutland and Melton), Sheryll Murray (South East Cornwall), Andrew Turner (Isle of Wight) and James Wharton (Stockton South) were the other MPs that accepted the invitation, according to the Daily Mirror.

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
