Tamil journalist P Sathiyamoorthy, who was killed inside the ‘No Fire Zone’ by a Sri Lankan army artillery barrage in February 2009, was remembered on Tuesday. 

The remembrance event, organised by the Tamil National People's Forum (TNPF), marking a decade since his killing was held in Jaffna.

The Tamil activist, Murugathas who self-immolated in front of UN office in 2009, was also remembered by those gathered.

Sathiyamoorthy was also remembered in another event in Mandaitivu where local residents and journalists gathered to pay their respects. 




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
