NPC resolution calls for Mullivaikkaal memorial

The Northern Provincial Council (NPC) has passed a resolution calling for a monument to be built to commemorate those killed in Mullivaikkaal earlier this week. 

The resolution, which was passed unanimously, was proposed by the councillor for Mullaitivu, T Raviharan. Noting that thousands had died, he told Ceylon Today,

"A monument has not been built to pay respect to the civilians in the Mullaitivu District. Therefore, I decided to bring in a resolution to build a monument remembering all the civilians, who died during the final stages of the war.”

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
