Theiveegan’s mother prevented from leaving SL

The late Suntharalingam Gajatheeban, alias Theiveegan’s mother Sundaralingam Rajithamalar, was prevented from leaving the country today, sources said.


She had arrived at the Bandaranaike International Airport to take a flight to Canada on a valid visa to enter that country.


 Sources said she might have been prevented from leaving the country because of the ongoing inquiry on Theiveegan. He and Gobi were shot dead during a clash with the Army at Padaviya early this year. They were alleged to have attempted to revive the LTTE.


Earlier, the 57-year-old Rajithamalar, who was arrested by the Terrorist Investigation Department soon after her son’s death and later released after questioning, had a six-year visa to Canada stamped on her passport.


On October 6 Ponniah Selvanayagam Kajeepan alias Gobi’s widow Kajeepan Sarmila had also been stopped at the Airport when she was about to leave for Switzerland.

    They supported the LTTE to commit horrendous crimes against us and now they want to scoot off? This only shows countries like Canada and many EU states are tiger supporters.

    The "white man" is the cause for all types of turbulence and chaos in any part of the world. They are famous to create issues in other parts of the world principally motivated to destabilize countries. If Tamils demand a homeland in Canada then they will take swift action against them and brand them as terrorists. White man hypocrisy... we are no longer fooled by them..

    The law machinery is in tact in Western countries and in Canada etc. no one is beyond the law unlike in sri lanka where the for Chief justice was sent home for having stood by the Law.

    The war ended but not the struggle for Elam. As long as that exists the integrity of Sri Lanka takes precedence.

    loki Tuesday, 21 October 2014 03:41 PM

    Yuri . So they give visa to terrorists from that country ?

    Jaya Tuesday, 21 October 2014 11:17 AM

    Well done authorities. Simply they do not go abroad to leisure or discover. But to support the LTTE rump.
