Sri Lankan army intelligence officers trail TNPF's memorial float

Sri Lankan army intelligence officers trailed the Tamil National People's Front's (TNPF) float earlier today as it arrived in Puthukkudiyiruppu (PTK). 

The float, which visited districts across the North-East before making its journey towards Mullivaikkal, was followed by Sri Lankan army intelligence officers in a three wheeler and on a motorcycle. 

In the lead up to Tamil Genocide Day, army intelligence officers have circled the Mullivaikkal memorial site and surrounding areas where Tamil families of the disappeared have been distributing kanji to commemorate the tens of thousands of lives massacred at the hands of the state forces.

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
