Incidents Of Crime In Jaffna Have Reached Serious Levels: TNA

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has strongly condemned the attack on Jaffna High Court Judge Illanchelliyan.

Sumanthiran

“We pray for Judge Illancheliyan and for the speedy recovery of the Police officers injured in this incident,” the TNA Spokesman M. A. Sumanthiran said.

Issuing a statement today he said: “We urge the Inspector General of Police to bring the perpetrators of this incident to justice and to investigate the conspiracies behind this incident.

“While we strongly condemn these kinds of violent attacks on the administration of justice, we are gravely concerned that the incidents of crime in Jaffna peninsula have reached serious levels. Further, it also raises serious doubts as to whether those who want to gain benefits out violence are behind this attack.

“This situation must be arrested immediately and we request all concerned to cooperate to bring these kinds of incidents to an end.”

    Sumanthiran making statement from the safety of Colombo. The lawlessness in Jaffana is due to the army occupation, lack of economic investment, lack of employment opportunity, etc etc. LTTE started as a pistol gang. I am sure we don’t want to go there again.So do something to address these issues

        Not just in Jaffna but also in Colombo and specially you guys roam are no sure at all.

        They woudl do any kind of high crimes, when police is no longer there.

        At the time, [Edited out] ruled the nation, with police standing next to the vandalists, they let it go. So was the situation in the high days of MR.
        So Jim bumty, you just point the finger at Jaffna people but just ignoring colombo people and their crimes.

          Shooting incident involving security officers of the judge hearing the case, has only one motive. Cow down Tamil judges, transfer the case to Colombo citing security concerns to be heard before Sinhala judges with Sinhala jury and exonerate all culprits. This is what exactly happened to cases of murder of non-combatant Tamil civilians by security forces during the war with LTTE. All these violence are done deliberately to distract the situation in Srilanka where the government is faltering in its promise to international community. It is time that the government called off its bluff and strive for genuine peace and reconciliation.

        Send the corrupt bribe taking, chain snatching Sinhala police back to Colombo and give the provincial govt police powers so they can recruit locals to police that province. For starters they can recruit those that served in the LTTE police. They were disciplined.

          Oh. Really. We saw the statement of Jaffna High Court Judge Illanchelliyan on Media yesterday and response of other Judges. The Hon Judge pledged to look after the children of that Brave SRI LNKAN Police Officer. It means a lot us. Innocent people in Jaffna really don’t want another LTTE era. These thoughts are defeated long ago. Let all people live in peace. We will not allow one or two short sighted, selfish citizens to create tensions, neither in Jaffna nor Colombo.

      Rajash,
      what bs have you been uttering ? Even after 70 years, Americans are still in Germany s berlin. So is the case in other army barracks too. So you ahve been uttering nonsence here, in a country whose majority folks are uncivlized but would do any high crimes for a rice packet, need more milltary protection or not ?
      Just imagine, if millitary would have been removed from Jaffna, do you think, the people would then be protected just by the control of Police ?

      Just study the truths about the world before uttering this bs.
      That can help the masses in and ourt of the coutnry.

          Dear Rajesh, Though I am catching up late, the truth is neither state of Eelam nor LTTE will come and trouble any Sri Lankan. There are people who love this country in North and well as in South. So they are stronger than those who are morally wrong.

    Lawlessness in Jaffna may have had its origins in state oppression.
    But it has spun out of control since the militants took control of political affairs.
    The brutality of the LTTE kept community violence down, but that was not the way forward for a society.
    There is a serious problem concerning values in Jaffna society. Answers are not as simple as crime and punishment.

      Judge described the culprit as trained professional on Pistols. But SJ sounds like he is sure of who would have done this. So, I think it is only a matter of seconds this shooter get arrested and justice being served.

      Unfortunately, LTTE had trained on Sand theft too and Tamis news reporting a police constable was attacked in Point Petro on the Sand robbery side too.

      Other problems is LTTE taught to rape too and the Vidya rape case, which the judge investigating is suggested even by the judge as the possible motive. Judge even broke when he was talking about Vidya’s case, possibly that much pressure Yahapalanaya would be putting to let the criminals go.

        He always does that, blame the Tamils , the Tamil language and culture for everything bad and defends the Sinhalese and Muslims , so why is it surprising that he is doing it again. Not that long ago he was attacking me viciously, to Sinhalese racists like Ramona, Soma , fake, may be real Peter Cassie Chetti , as now many Colombo Chetties now consider themselves not Tamils but Sinhalese, or semi Sinhalese, despite having typical Tamil names and a very recent South Indian origin. Previously he used to leap to the defence of Muslim extremists .

    The Tamil people do not expect Sumanthiran’s opinion. The incident speaks for itself. What is he and his party going to do about it?
    100 years back the Tamils in general were peace loving people. There was no violence, deaths due to violence rape or murder. Honesty and sincerity and genuineness prevailed among the Tamil people. The Tamil youths were hungry to educate themselves and be a man in society to earn for their family. The parents supported them
    The only litigation and judicial expenditure some of the Tamil people had in the North was for property ownership. Education and employment was their ulterior motive and that took place with success.
    It has completely changed after the war. The youths are not bent on education but on theft, rape, murder ,drugs trafficking and all anti social activities and making money by illicit means. The leaders of the Tamil Parties like TELO. EPRLF, PLOT, EPDP must take responsibility for current situation in the North. These are the parties which changed the peaceful culture of the Tamil people.

        Yes we do not need to bend or blend with the Sinhalese or with aGujarathi like you. We are in our own land. You are a recent Import from India, so have to blend and bend. We all know that Gujatathi love to bend a lot , that is why they waddle like ducks and go around the world creating problems for themselves and for other Indians too, this is why Idi Amin finally banished them from Uganda. We can see them bending and blending at the corner shops in the UK and in the motels in the USA. What is wrong with SJV being Christian , religion has never been an issue with the secular Sri Lankan Tamils . SJV being a Christian was not an issue from a Jaffna Brahmin like me, so what is your problem? Gujarati import from India. At least he had the guts to remain Christian and not convert for political convenience, like the Bandarnaicke, Jayawardene, Wickremesinghe and many other Sinhalese leader sdid. You are very quiet about this. We all know that most Guiaratis are Hindu fanatics and have now become cow vigilantes , creating havoc in India but you seem them in the west eating beef burghers at Macdonald’s. May be you dreaming of bending and being gang banged in prison. Go to some Gujarati forum and comment about Modi and cows.

      Vidya Murder was planned as part of increasing army. Unfortunate that time it did not well go to Appe Anduwa. That is why this has to be planned by Apee Anduwa. It thinks this will give a good chance to increase military presence and it can slip out of the secret solution game. When Rose and Sumanthiran organized a Vizha in Colombo in the name of protesting against Vidya’s muder, nobody believed UNP or Sumanthiran.

    Who are the EX-LTTE carders, aren’t they trained pistol users now have become pistol gangs. Dalits expressing their Tribalist views as Army should not be there, govt oppression etc., None of htese idiots think a viollence ridden society was stilled by the Army. As they are violent prone best thing is to deploy army every where. Other wise, police stay inside most of the time and let the killers and it will finish one day when the killers get old.

Sumanthiran kept quiet. Now things are getting escalated in an alarming rate. Tamil politicians should take the full responsibility of the present situation in the North.

            Wimal is more than that. Look at what he did. He pulled out from the Constitutional Assembly “officially” totally disabling the federal constitution formulating process. (They never took part in any of the committees from the beginning).

            Not only that, even the steering committee and other sub-committees are also now handicapped without the Constitutional Assembly.

            Thank you. 100% agree. When Native Vedda thought I am a “he,” he didn’t attack me this low. When he thought I am a “she,” (I don’t know what made him to change of his opinion) he stooped to the cheapest level. I never knew Tamils treat women this bad. I pity their women.

            I am not least bothered about insults. I follow Lord Buddha’s teaching on how to handle insults. This is the story.

            “One day when Lord Buddha was walking through a village, an angry man who belonged to a different belief system started insulting Lord Buddha. Without getting upset Lord Buddha asked him;
            “If you give a gift to somebody and that somebody doesn’t accept it, what will happen to the gift?”
            The angry man said “Well, I bought the gift, so the gift will come back to me.”
            Then the Lord Buddha said;
            “Exactly. When you get angry with me and insult me and if I don’t accept it, the anger and insults fall back on you. You are the one who will become unhappy not me.”

            Cheers to you, Keyboard Vedda.

    It is obvious that there is something fishy in this whole affair. The perpetrators of these violent acts are not acting alone, but at the instigation of a sinister hand. EPDP cadres and some of the rehabiliatred and released LTTE members are working for military intelligence. The sword wielding group are from this gang and is similar to Janjaweed militia employed by Sudan to create trouble in South Sudan. Illicit sand trade s done by EPDP cadres in collabloration with security forces. This is the reason why none of those in this crime have been apprehended. Time to time these people working with military intelligence are instructed by their masters to fire at security force vehicles and cause injury to members of security forces in order to distract the truth about their true motive of acting as agents of security forces. These violent acts are done purposefully to justify the need for continued pressence of large amount of security forces in Tamil areas. Until and unless the police is brought under provincial council and the ethnic balance in the security forces stationed in Tamil areas corrected to have substantial Tamil pressence, such iolence is bound to continue.

    There appear to be persons and criminals- individually and in groups- available for hire to march in protest, impose hartels, , burn tyres, rape, murder, torture, mutilate, wield swords, engage in arson, rob, peddle drugs, keep the so-called lodges busy by enticing even school girls and videoing violence. As judge Illanchelian explained after yesterday’s incident, the gunmen was quite skilled in wielding the policeman’s pistol. Money will make these dregs do anything.

    They are paid aplenty by down right cads like Swiss Kumar, politicians and others who want thugs to do their bidding. These men who ride motor cycles and are quick to appear and disappear, are the bane of Jaffna and the Northern Province. These are the men and women who protest on behalf of politicians and are portrayed as respresenting public opinion..

    This is the inevitable outcome in a society that suffered a prolonged and vicious war fought with no scruples. It has left in its wake a very disturbed society that is floundering to find its feet. In many ways it is yet a sick society with a large proportion of individuals who need long term psychiatric help. There are many men and women who were trained to wield the gun and engage in violence- and lost their soul as a result- yet roaming around dispersed among a struggling people.

    In what I had called a ‘Anything goes ‘ society that has resulted from the war, in a comment elsewhere, there are patrons aplenty providing the demand and in response there is a ready supply of purveyors of paid for violence of various degrees.

    Unfortunately we do not have societal leaders and professional politicians to recognise the root cause and seek solutions.

      It is not Swiss Kumar money. Money should have been coming from very high level. There is no way swiss Kumar producing and selling videotapes alone. “Untha Poi Kantha Puranathilum Illai”.Certainly Old and New Royals are in this case. At start it was blamed Ranil sent the UNP layers to appear for defendants. Still the mother is kept as prisoner within the new Sinhala Colony created for Sinhalese. That case still going on after so long. Judge broke down during his interview. Trial ut Bar format properly have been selected only to put pressure on judges fix the case. It should have been case of 100% Tamil Jury case.

      It is not possible that Swiss Kumar has all that money now to pay the dregs. But the rest of what you have said is true. Almost all those who are now locked up charged with the rape and murder of Vidya are those who were associated with DD’s EPDP. That is the opinion of most of the locals in Punguduthivu.
      As for the recent assaination attempt of the judge hearing the case it must be remembered that there were many requests and demands that the case to be heard in Colombo which was not received well by people in the North not only because the offence committed came under the jurisdiction of Jaffna district but also but also because of the inconveniences for witnesses to travel to testify and other valid reasons considered irksome by the Attorney Generals department for transferring the case for hearing in Colombo.
      Judge Illanchelian says that the gunman seemed quite skilled in plucking the pistol from the policeman and using it to shoot. That is what is important here.
      The fact he did not succeed in hitting his target in the skirmish and how he had been allowed to escape on a motor bike he was able to take over very opportunely is another important aspect here.
      Was it by design, plan or mere luck ? Understand a DIG of police is in custody on the orders of this judge!
      Were there any security cameras at or in the vicinity of the temple road junction when the incident occurred.
      Were they on or off? If they were off why?

        During and just after the war some of Pottu Amman’s boys were directly recruited by Military intelligence and directly answerable to Gota.

        Some of the serving Sinhalese army officers were concerned about the newly recruited Gota’s boys from Pottu Amman’s department. The army officers have to be doubly careful of their actions. Gota got information from his new boys on a regular basis.

        What are these Pottu/Gota boys doing now?

        There is a growing believe in Jaffna, Colombo, Batti, Kandy among many informed people that there is a powerful Mafia (a net work or Free Masons) based somewhere in Colombo protect the crooks, murderers, rapists, criminals etc….. irrespective of their affiliation. Once a Sinhalese policeman told me that his department knew the people who regularly smuggled Kerala Gancha into Jaffna (from where it is being distributed through out rest of the country). Police arrested the low level smugglers and taken the vehicle with large quantity of stock to the police department. Within a day or two smugglers were released, vehicle with the stock was returned to the smugglers, and that was the end of the story. In the meantime someone went to Colombo and got clearance from high up.

        In Mannar policemen complained they wanted to honestly serve the community but because of the corrupt and powerful policeman well connected to the top they are unable to deliver what the ordinary people expect them to deliver.

        At some courts the prosecutors, court officials, defence lawyers and policeman have formed a cartel, hence price of justice is being fixed by it. The price does not necessarily mean financial reward.

        You may be a honest man but what about your neighbour, friend, relative, colleague, …… friend’s friend, may be your mistress’s (if you have one) brothers, …..?

        I have not checked with everybody from Pungudutheevu.
        But what was the source of Thamilmaaran’s dubious role?
        Why was the TNA not keen to pursue the matter any more than other interested parties.

    When Tamils engaged in violence for 30 years or so, what do you expect right away, a peaceful society. Even before 1970s, Tamils were violent. Have you forgotten how highcasts were killing and haressing low castes. Low caste women were their toys. Do you need to understand how they rape servent girls. Ask the inside stories. but, Dalits talk here that Sinhala govts, army are the problem. If Army is removed for a week Tamil will run over police stations kill opponents and make a mockery in the North.

    He He He
    After Tamils were liberated (???) on 2009 May 9th this is the beauty of the situation.
    Before girls were able to walk alone even in late night.
    Look at the beauty of security provided by card board Sinhala forces ..even a judge is Not safe ..these incidents are common in Venezuela and Colombia.
    Card board Sinhala forces are busy in selling drugs in North & East
    Malwatte and Asgiriya Ayotullahs living in the stone age is against the new constitution.
    Soon this cursed land will beat South American countries in murder., kidnapping, etc
    Cheers

      Is not the issue one concerning crime within the Jaffna Tamil community?
      There should be some serious soul searching rather than making excuses.

    When the drugd crime rate increased in West London this year, army was deployed to control the violence. When the domestic abuse spiked in Toronto, Canadian army was sent to control it. When the child abuse claims spiked in Vatican, Italian army was sent there this year. So when crime rate increase in the north, we need to send more army to control them. It is very simple. The non Buddhist Tamil terrorists don’t get it. Buddhist monks also should be sent to teach the people about non violent way of thinking.

      Jim Shitty the eternally stupid mongrel, When the domestic abuse spiked in Toronto, Canadian army was sent to control it.

      I have lived in Canada for decades, when did this ever happen? The Canadian army has been sent in only when there was a snow storm, which the city workers could not handle. To help (clear the snow) them, the army was sent in. Canada is not a police state idiot. The Canadian police at various levels is in charge of domestic matters including domestic abuse. Now I see how you make up things in your pea sized brain. Wow, what a stupid fellow.

      Also when was the army deployed in west London in relation to drug crimes. That was in Jamaica a few years ago. These are 2 separate countries. When the child abuse claims spiked in Vatican, Italian army was sent there this year. Oh, really. Vatican is a separate state idiot. The Pope is the head of state. The Italian army will only be sent in if the state is threatened by a foreign power.

      Oh Banda, why are you soooooooooo stupid? Buddhist monks also should be sent to teach the people about non violent way of thinking. hahahaha……………..the dirty pig Gnanasara and his cohorts are always parading up and down in the south setting fire to Muslim owned buildings. My head is hurting now. I better stop. I will be back, bye bye dummy.

    Why are the five policemen who shot dead two undergraduates not yet indicted?
    Does this not show the level of enforcement of justice in the north?

    No news either, of the policeman who shot dead a man riding on top of a pile of sand alleged to have been ‘scooped’ illegally, being produced in a court of law.

      Where Justice live people are shot unnecessarily, but low is used to defend them. In Sri lanka police, at that instance, had all the rights to shoot at them when they were riding the motor bike at them. I think there i smore to it.

    The law and order situation deteriorated rapidly from 2009 when Maj Gen CA Chandrasiri was appointed Governor of NP. Prior to that alcohol was under strict control and drugs nearly never on the market. From 2009, drugs were openly sold near check points. People with money had their way in disputes.
    Strange Sumanthiran never raised the deterioration in the social structure before. As a lawyer he should know that law and order can be upheld only if the prosecution is evenhanded. The police have already said that the assassination attempt was NOT premeditated – a drunk civilian able to use a police revolver dropped by a policeman to shoot at two policemen! My my my foot.
    The tragedy is the death of one policeman. Up to now political leaders have not expressed outrage.
    Come on Wimal, summon the press to tell them that the incident was staged by the …….. ?? You will get a Lemon Puff if you fill the blank.

    Here, All the Tamils spewing their Racism. The Truth is That Judge had ben protected by Sinhala police officers. Why is that. why they did not trust Tamil police men. Then, a drunkard had taken the pistol of a police sergent by force and had shot some officers. He did not shoot at the judge. This is in a leading newspaper. Why CT publish racist articles without giving the correct information ? CT has become just a website spewing anti-sinhala, antiSinhala buddhist, anti buddhist web site.——————————-Finally the question whether the drunkard was a former LTTE cader who hates simple people or the Tamil killers of the girl paid to him to go and shoot. I think general public knows the story better than the CT.

      Idiot Jim Shitty, Illancheliyan does not have a say in who becomes his body guard/s. The government decides that as he is a servant of the judiciary. Oh man, why are you so dumb?

      Tamil policeman? How many Tamils are in the police these days? Only now they are getting involved after the war. Bloody hell, what a goof ball.

    The shooting at Nalloor appears to be a spontaneous sudden incident instigated by alcohol. Neither planned nor targeted the Judge. The Judges statement was wrong,lie , false and misguiding. This is a very good example how the media distort, Fabricate and buildup the news and emotionalize the public. The judge may be sleeping in the van and suddenly woke up to make the statement. The solitary Police officer should not have gone too close to the men there. He was careless about his responsibilities and would displayed the police arrogant mentality and acted in such way. The judge concealing the fact and be prosecuted for it.
    The judge could have sympathized to the victim and said sorry. A kneeling down and apologizing is wrong and inappropriate . Was it by his mistake the victim Died to apologize. A body guard duty is high risk one and should be ready to accept causalities. An excellent Drama staged at the precinct of Nallooor Temple. Shame to the Legal and Justice fraternity.

    Racist and hate speech is a definite precursor to the pogrom. Moving and stationing military is a precursor for aggression, war and subjugation inquisition and slavery. Read history

    Challenging court of law and their judges by Tamil gunmen was that intention of turn democratic rule into, the rule Terrorism of Gun RULE politics in North by LTTE. This was LTTE did 30 years ago after assassination of Jaffna Mayor of Alfred Durrapa by Vellupilla Parabarkan. The origin and development of Tamil-Chanavisnist Terrorism has extended into so-called” Homeland” of all Tamil Speaking in world that First Nation to established in north part of Sri lanka. While that Terrorism of ethnic base of the Tamil homeland has created chaos of democracy and nexus to threaten to oldest Sinhalese-Buddhist -civilization goes to 2600 years of Sri lanka.
    This ambition Tamil-homeland has not yet evaporated from in North by TNA and LTTE axis of politics of “power devolution” of proposes that new constitution. Needless to say Killed policemen of south is by safeguard of Judges shows that Tamils -LTTE are not repent of their past and reaming future “idea of Homeland” ;by GUN POINT is key target of their politics . Indeed what ever the interpretations has given by TNA leadership their key path has not change by LTTE-Tamil line of thinking has not shifted yet?

    Rajash is talking through his arse. Since the war ended, and check points and armed police were removed, there has been an escalation of crime even in the South. All the arseholes who voted for Yahapaalanaya were blaming MR. But murders, rapes, armed robberies continue and even more Drug smuggling with the auspices of UNP cabinet ministers from Puttalama district. So much for these arses. Smuggling between India and Ceylon have increased since Navy withdrew. LTTE terrorists who escaped Nirvana by the brave Ceylonese Army are operating Pistol Gangs again. Go to Jaffna and see who they try to run the market. When a Sinhala fellow tries to bargain for Mangoes the LTTE fellows swoop in and berate the old ladies who would be happy to bargain and sell just like to Tamil customers. I speak a bit of Tamil, and I tried to bargain for 50 mangoes from 75 rupees each to 50 and this thug Tamil blacker than charcoal guy came and threatened that Amma. Tamils were buying at 55 Rupees. I went away only buying 10 mangoes. RAcist scum shit exist amongst Tamils too and Rapists, Drug dealers, all exist. LTTE ruled with an iron hand. Now there is too much freedom and welfare. The young Tamils are into porn, and drugs and now even a decent Tamil girl cannot pass by without the same type of lewd comments we hear in the Deep South. As a non practicing Catholic married to a Southern Tamil lady doctor I find this disgusting. So much for saying Tamils are superior.
