TNA should be banned - Deputy Minister

The Deputy Labour Minister Sarath Weerasekara has called for the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to be banned.

According to LankaSri, Weerasekara said that the TNA always stood by the beliefs of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam and thus politically aided "one of the most brutal terrorist organisations in the world".

The deputy minister stated that after the end of the LTTE in Sri Lanka, the TNA is the only political party which is still trying to revive the Tamil Eelam struggle.

“Even though everything and everyone who associated with the LTTE organization has been banned, or brought before the law, TNA still hiding behind the democracy and aiding terrorism publically. Hence, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) political party should be banned”, he said.

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
