    Another Tamil Parliamentarian T. Maheswaran was shot and killed inside the High Security Zone (HSZ) in Colombo by Gotabahya Rajapakse’s hit men when Maheswaran went to pray and seek God’s blessing on January 1st 2008 at Siva temple (Ponnambala Vanneswara). The psychopath who calls himself the defence secretary is an American citizen. It is high time the INS starts proceedings against this criminal if they want to tell the FREE WORLD that the US stands for Democracy and Human Rights,
    ALL these Sanajanas and wordsmith Dyan de Silva who is an outright disgrace to his eminent pater familias Mervyn can write tomes about Tamil Tigers’ atrocities and call them pariahs and bastards, but they will not and SINCERELY cannot give an explanation why innocent Tamils are killed, abducted, raped and dumped in Colombo. Over to you Madame Rice, Secretary of State – Sri Lanka is a basket case and is not an oil rich country but has a group of criminals led by Rajapakse brothers masquerading as democrats and killing parliamentarians and innocent Tamil civilians who have no truck with the criminal Tiger terrorists. Are you going to ignore this or help the helpless?

    Groundviews.org exist to reap the Euros and dollars being disbursed in Sri Lanka by EU, US & Canada. I wouldnt be surprised these people doing the exact opposite behind the ‘firewalls’ of our computers.

    The Sri Lankan forces are running amok in the high security zones of the capital. The man they say is caught in Maheswaran MP assassination is a drama to blame, LTTE & Tamils themselves for this killing.

    Suspect was wounded by body guards and arrested at the scene. We will know who he is and who he is working for soon enough. He is a Tamil from Jaffna and as of now seem to be a member of LTTE.

    Kumar’s great haste in ascribing blame to government indicate what kind of a person he is.

    It is the LTTE that brought Tamils of Sri Lanka to this state. Anyone who cares for Tamil people will recognize that and support government’s effort to eradicate Terrorism.
