A statue of the former Tamil MP and human rights lawyer, N Raviraj who was assassinated 10 years ago this month was unveiled in Chavakachcheri on Sunday.
The official unveiling ceremony was attended by a number of Tamil politicians including the leader of the Tamil National Alliance, R Sampanthan, and other TNA MPs.
Mr Raviraj, a former TNA MP, was assassinated along with his driver in Colombo.
No one has been sentence for the crime despite a decade passing.
A witness in an inquiry into the assassination of Mr Raviraj earlier this year alleged Sri Lankan navy intelligence officials were involved.
The witness, Sampath Prithiviraj, said the officials associated with the navy intelligence office in Gangarama had planned the killing.
In July six men, including three former Sri Lankan navy personnel have been indicted. Three men absconded the proceedings, including two paramilitary men with Karuna's group.
