By Colombo Telegraph –

The government is attempting to evade the responsibility of the shooting at the JVP meeting held at Katuwana in Hambantota District. In an announcement issued by the Director General of the Media Center for National Security after a long time states the shooting was the result of a clash between two factions of the JVP. However, it is being revealed that the shooting has been carried out by Joolampitiye Amare, an underworld leader manipulated by the government.

A woman and a boy were killed and 25 others were critically injured when an unidentified group shot indiscriminately at a Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) political meeting held in Katuwana , in the Beliaththa area in Hambantota, this evening.  .

The Member of the Central Committee of the JVP Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa and several others had been on stage at the time of shooting. A spokesman for the JVP stated that the government was trying to evade the responsibility of the shooting.

    JVP supported Rajabakse. LTTE won the election for him for a small fees.

    LTTE was at the receiving end at Mullivaaikkal. JVP might again end up in river Kalyani.

    Amarasinhe told US ambassador Patricaia Butenis:

    “there were human rights violations in every war and with regard to the final year of the Sri Lankan war there were in fact far fewer human rights violations than ever before”.

    Are there far fewer human rights violations than ever before? If so can I safely conclude that the above incident did not take place?

    This Ajith Rohana does not say what the police did to apprehend the shooters.
    In the northeast, the shooters & those who assault citizens usually wear masks.

    Ok, we are seeing a return to the good old days of political violence and STATE-SPONSORED TERRORISM to intimidate and silence opposition voices, as the pressure mounts from all sides on the Rajapakse regime to find an exit strategy before they are run out of town by people fed up to the teeth of seeing their smug faces on posters and government media rags!
    Blow back is inevitable – we only have to wait! Meanwhile Namal is holding the next beech games in Maulaitivu – first mourn dead from 2009 and return the grabbed lands, then bring out the circus, brat!

    First I too suspected the Dissident FSP, later i got the correct story that these underworld thugs rampage story has appeared in the JVP news paper Lanka few weeks back, which has annoyed & irritated these thugs & the Govt.

    Most of the information was given by the 2 deceased.

    This will be yet another unsolved, mysterious, murder. One of many that is now common in Sri Lanka.
    Leaders are ruling the land with guns and murder. Journalists are missing, killed, and their murderers are never found. This is the Sri Lanka run by the Rajapaksa’s. It is strange how people who they perceive to be threats or who criticize them too much, are kidnapped or murdere, and the criminals who are responsible for it, are never found.
