Maaveerar Naal commemorated at Koppay despite police intimidation

Maaveerar Naal was observed in Koppay today despite a high profile intimidation campaign by Sri Lankan police over the last week.

While the Koppay thuyilum illam remains inaccessible due to its occupation by the Sri Lankan army, commemorations were held in private land near the cemetery.

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
