Posters appeared in the Jaffna town yesterday calling for a Hartal today demanding legal action against all those who attempted to protect the murderers of schoolgirl Sivaloganathan Vidya.

The posters carried pictures of State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran and Attorney Thamil Maran who appeared for Swiss Kumar.

The posters claimed that when the first accused Swiss Kumar was in custody, it was the state minister and the attorney who assisted in getting him released.

The posters had been put up by a group calling itself the, People of Jaffna and several women’s organizations.

Meanwhile, the traders organizations and civil society groups said they did not want a Hartal because justice had been meted out. (Romesh Madushanka)

    Once before Prabakaran Jaffna was a cultured region. After he ruined Jaffna there is no one of any standing left in Jaffna and now it is a rotten place with gangs,criminals and the Police are totally incompetent.

    Hartal is a waste if you carry out of some one wimp and fancy.

    I agree with the protesters, give those who protected the criminals maximum punishment.

    When I saw Vijayakala Maheswaran came forward to release Swiss Kumar, I was shocked. I was shocked as she herself has 2 daughters and her husband was murdered. This shows how insensitive our politicians are. its time a full investigation is held and all those who tried to protect or got involved in either releasing or safeguarding the accused should be investigated and if found guilty should be punished.

    It seems that the ordinary people of Jaffna in the North are much more civic conscious than their counterpart in the South. Pity. MM
