Pro-LTTE groups to protest when President visits UN

Pro-LTTE groups are preparing to stage a protest when President Maithripala Sirisena visits the UN next week.

President Maithripala Sirisena is scheduled to speak at the UN during the UN General Assembly on September 25th.

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) said it will be holding a protest rally against President Sirisena outside the UN General Assembly in New York City, on September 25th from 12:00 to 2:00 pm.

The TGTE has accused the President of being responsible for the deaths of approximately 70,000 Tamils during the war.

“President Sirisena has admitted that he was the acting defense minister during the war when large numbers of Tamils were killed, including thousands who surrendered. The surrendered also included several babies and children. Almost 10 years have passed since their surrender and they still remain disappeared,” TGTE said. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Indians who created the Tamil armed groups, but didn’t have the capability to manage those armed groups. Indians’ brainchild was hijacked by the West, eventually the West pushed the LTTE to fight against the Indian army. Sri Lankans must judge India’s capability and make the moves, otherwise Sri Lanka will be trapped by India forever. India can’t trap Sri Lanka, unless Sri Lankans are allowing India to do so.
