TNA Slams Collecting Blank-Signed Forms Allegation

The Tamil National Alliance has today refused the allegation that TNA officials are involving in a scheme to provide fabricated evidence to the OHCHR investigation on Sri Lanka through the distribution and collection of forms.

Issuing a statement TNA said; “Whether or not the allegations of blank signed forms being found on the recently arrested Mr. Krishnarasa are true, the TNA does not support the collection of evidence for the OHCHR investigation through the distribution and collection of specimen forms, not least because the evidential value of information collected in this manner is very low.”

We publish below the statement in full;

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) wishes to refute several false claims made in a news item titled “Police hunt for TNA Vavuniya organiser, Governor takes up Ananthi’s conduct with NPC: Signatures on blank UN war crimes complaint forms” by Shamindra Ferdinando which appeared in the Island newspaper, on 31 October 2014.

The contents of the article contain a number of erroneous and misleading assertions. The article falsely suggest that the TNA, through a senior TNA official named Alva Pulle Vijendrakumar alias Sun Master, is involved in a scheme to provide fabricated evidence to the OHCHR investigation on Sri Lanka through the distribution and collection of forms. These assertions are untrue. Mr Vijendrakumar is not a TNA official, nor is he a member of the TNA, and his alleged activities with regard to the distribution and collection of forms have not been endorsed by the TNA. Further, whether or not the allegations of blank signed forms being found on the recently arrested Mr. Krishnarasa are true, the TNA does not support the collection of evidence for the OHCHR investigation through the distribution and collection of specimen forms, not least because the evidential value of information collected in this manner is very low. The suggestion that the TNA is involved in collecting fabricated evidence is thus spurious and manifestly untrue.

The TNA unequivocally asserts the right of all victims and witnesses of crimes to present information known by them to the OHCHR investigation, and condemns threats made by government functionaries against victims and witnesses who cooperate with UN mechanisms. The TNA has encouraged all victims of international crimes committed in Sri Lanka to make submissions to the OHCHR investigation through proper and appropriate channels.

    .
    Srilanka did not agree with the investigation, refused to cooperate and they said they won’t accept outcome of the investigation.

    So why are they worried?

    The article may contain erroneous assertions BUT the fact is a pro-ltte’er has been caught red handed & have spilled the beans or say vomitted.
    Lets wait untill Vijendrakumar is arrested & confromted with the arrestee. From time to time the Tiger tail is visible in the TNA dress and the cassoacks of the Clergy.

    TAMILS WERE FOOLED BY TAMILS FOR 30+ YEARS & CONTINUE TO DO SO.

    Re: Restrictions
    Clergy has no business to say to take action to negotiate with the authorities neither did they have any business to pettition UNHRC in Geneva or to support ltte terrorism or to equate Prabakaran to jesus or suicide cardres to that of martyrs.
    How does Thomas.S knowing that the TNA acted as proxies of the ltte ask the TNA politicians to act?

    TAMILS WERE FOOLED BY TAMILS FOR 30+ YEARS & CONTINUE TO DO SO.

    Neither the GOSL nor the Majority trust the Clergy in the North who began acting as the loot keepers of the ltte terorists and thereafter attempted make Prabakaran a god and innocent youth sent to their death as martyrs.

    Where was this doubting Thomas Savundranayakam/Rayappu & the Gang when the ltte imposed restriction and when diaspora in Europe had to pay ltte collectors Euro 2000 a month and get a registration number to enter the Wanni & the North.
    Where was the TNA ???????????

    TNA & their NPC had done enough to decimate innocent Tamil youth & children of the North with the connivance of YOU & your Clergy. While the the Dumb Sinhala Clergy and the Vatican connived continued to do so.
    Thomas Saundranayakam you & Rayappu & Clergy, would you mind yours own business close to your Ministry. You too are terrorists in cassoack.
    GOSL is now aware whom to restrict & whom not.
    If Thomas want restrictions lifted YOU may tell Emmanuel & Rayappu to pray to your new found Saviour the VELU BABA.

    “Threats and intimidation” does not seem to have deterred Sambadan from complaining.

    UNHCR was always there. He waited for 30 years witnessing child soldiers, abductions, massacres etc without complaining. LTTE Threats and intimidation would have been too much to bear I suppose.

    Although now, the army threats and intimidation must be bearable. Yet another Tamil special.

    Why Tamils still come to ‘genocidal’ Sri Lanka?

    These people have no shame whatsoever.

    TNA is represtaitaive of Tamils community of Sri lanka.
    I convince that National political party of Tamil, nationally need to be accountability and responsibility, what step taken by leadership of TNA.

    TNA has to learn lessons from past 30 war on terrorism which lost large number Tamils and their leaders by LTTE act of Terrorism.

    Regain Tamil terrorism want bring any positive result future generations of Tamils as well as Other in Sri lanka. That is why I always request Tamil Political class is if their are wise should move that join on strategically relationship with class who are in South, want Development and Democracy by policy of cohabitation sustainability of Capitalism in Sri lanka.

    Sad to say that TNA still follow blind path of ‘Separatism’ ,which is against trend of Globalization, it did not realized that reform mode of sustainability Capitalism new tendency path of The development.
