The treatment and forgiveness shown by the government towards former LTTE leader Kumaran Padmanadan, alias "KP" is unacceptable when ex- LTTE combatants and IDP’s are still detained, TULF leader V.Anandasangaree said while making his presentation at the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Committee (LLRC) today.   

 

He added that the there were more than 10,500 youth held as detainees in rehabilitation camps and that it was crime to label these children as ex-combatants as they were our children.

 

Mr. Anadasangaree warned the government to beware about depending on KP and his followers. “The money which he is now claiming to invest in Sri Lanka’s development activities was earned through illegal or sinful means. I don’t think the country should be made part of these sins by using the money for development,” he added.

 

Mr. Anandasangaree said even though the living conditions of civilians in Jaffna were improving the plight of those in Vavuniya and Kilinochchi was sad.

 

“The government must do more to upgrade the living standards of these people as well,” he said.

Mr. Anandasangaree said maintaining a high military presence in the North and plans to establish Army camps be reviewed by the government.

 

“What is the meaning of liberalization if the civilians are there continue to remain under a military presence? It is a case of people being tossed from the frying pan into the fire,” he said. “Most of the homes are still occupied by the military. They are not asking for much, they only want to be released from camps and for their homes to be returned,” he said.

    No forgiveness for SF. The wealth to be grasped from KP is more lucrative than penniless SF

    Anandasangaree dont get angry, every action has a reaction soon or later. A very good example was the ex president Premadasa.

    It has become a habit for sinhalese to live off wealth of minorities. This is proved in 1956, 1958, 1977, 1981 and 1983.

    Former chief minister of Tamilnadu C.N.Annadurai said getting money from the hands of a rich man is like taking ghee from the hands of a leper.

    Douglas and Karuna are heeding to exit, now is KP time

    The respect he gained for standing-up to the LTTE, fast evaporated, when he sided with the government to spite his former party colleagues.

    RajasH Friday, 13 August 2010 07:21 PM

    Those who were forcibly recruited by the LTTE are languishing in camps, while those who voluntarily joined and even master-minded the LTTE, are treated like Rajas!
