Field archaeologists from the South, deployed to excavate the alleged site of mass graves in the former SL military held high-security zone in Mannaar island, are trying to project the massacre site as an ancient burial site, families of enforced disappeared Tamils, who witnessed their attitude on Tuesday told TamilNet.

Tamil families caught in dilemma of transferring lands in Seruvila, Trincomalee

[Sun, 10 Jun 2018, 19:14 GMT]
The rulers of genocidal Sri Lanka, who launched a Sinhala colonisation scheme and created the division of Seruvila in the district of Trincomalee, also gave some lands to Tamil families in the past to avoid the criticism of Sinhala Only policy in settlement schemes. The division, sandwiched between Moothoor and Eachchilam-pattai divisions, was carved out of the traditional Tamil homeland. It is a dominant Sinhala division today. However, some settlements continue to be Tamil areas along the southern border of Moothoor division. The older generation of Eelam Tamil landowners who want to transfer their lands to their children are facing the dilemma of spending more money to retain their lands or leaving the fate of their properties at the hands of the Sinhala land officials in Seruvila, Tamil civil officials in Moothoor said.

Swiss ruling, a precedent-setting victory for Right of Self-Determination oriented freedom fighters

[Fri, 15 Jun 2018, 21:07 GMT]
Marcel Bosonnet
Zurich-based legal experts, who represented the former LTTE-associated activists in Switzerland involved in the fundraising to the struggle of Eezham Tamil independence, have praised the recent verdict in the Swiss Federal Criminal Court as a precedent-setting victory. The decision is a victory for the Right of Self-determination oriented national liberation armed struggles that get wrongly classified as terrorism due to international politics, Marcel Bosonnet, one of the legal experts who defended the Tamil activists told TamilNet in an interview on Friday. The judges felt that there were not enough concrete proofs to consider the LTTE as a criminal organisation. This ruling is outstanding and is much better-placed than the EU ruling as it challenges the international politics based terrorism classification with a principled legal question, Tamil legal activists in Switzerland said.
