Sampanthan, others storming army camp: Probe hushed up
Police investigations into a complaint that a group of more than 50 persons led by Opposition and TNA Leader R Sampanthan forcibly entering an army camp at Paravipachchan in Kilinochchi on April 16 have been stalled as the army has been ordered not to pursue the case.
Police said yesterday that officers of the Paravipachchcan camp had been summoned to Kilinochchi police to record their statements on the incident but the camp officers declined to cooperate saying that they had been instructed not to proceed with the case.
A group of more than 50 persons including opposition and TNA Leader R Sampanthan, TNA MPs S Sritharan, and MA Sumanthiran entered the Paravipachchan camp around 3.00 pm on April 16 without obtaining prior permission. They remained in the camp premises for several hours.
Following the incident army lodged a complaint with the Kilinochchi police and another complaint with the Senior DIG of the Northern Range.
A special team of policemen under an ASP was appointed to investigate the incident. The officers and men of the Paravipachchan camp were asked to visit the Kilinochchi police to make statements.
Police said they could not proceed without statements from camp authorities and men who were manning the entry point to the camp.

This is only the beginning. There will be more of this . It is only a matter of time.
I am stunned by this incident.
Unauthorised persons(they may be Leaders or beggars) forcibly entered a security facility and occupied the facility for over 4 hours.
What did the soldiers do about it?
As a private citizen, if I attempt to scale the fence of a security facility or force myself through the entrance, I will be shot to smithereens by the soldiers.
So, what did the soldiers protecting the facility do about this unlawful invasion?
Did they rightfully raise their guns to warn the invaders of the risk of entering the facility, illegally, without permission from Field Marshall Fonseka?
If I were a soldier, I would have defended my country by raising my gun to the (dirty) heart of Sampanthen and Sumanthiran and warning them of consequences if they continue their illegal journey, any further.
As S Fernando syas ‘This is only the beginning’.
The next will be unilateral declaration of Independence for the Northern and Easter Provnces.
The recent resolution approved by a minority in the NPC calls for a Federal State.
The next resolution in the NPC will be UDI.
They also said Muslims in the Est need an autonomous region. This means they are tuning the Muslim Congress leadership in the EPC to come up with a resolution calling for merger of the NP and EP and also merger of the Provinces.
We, the Sinhala People, are in trouble.
The NPC should be disbanded promptly because of their anti-sovereign state behavior. The TNA should be banned because they invaded a Govt Security Establishment.
JRJ did well when he banned the TULF from Parliament for failing to recognize the unitary constitution on Sri Lnaka.
Hope the Sena-Singhe Govt has the same guts.
Muslims community never merge with these dirty bustards.
When GL Peiris, commented on the bomb found in north he summoned to the CID.
When Sampanthan, stormed to the military premises, government providing statements stating that it’s not by force. Or it’s just an accident.
What is the difference here?
Who are the idiots here?
PM just to cover up requesting to provide a report, just for a name sake.
Seems like SL is never learning, pack up guys and migrate soon.
I am sick and tired of the Tamils crying to the world that they are discriminated while there are plenty of Tamils owning shops, holding good positions in the public sector and government.
Why don’t the Tamil Nadu state give these poor suckers a place in there land. Why are they seeking a home land in our country . Pack up and piss off.
