GTF calls for deproscription of all groups, individuals

The Global Tamil Forum (GTF) yesterday called for delisting of all proscribed organisations and individuals in Sri Lanka.


UK based spokesperson and Director for Strategic Initiatives of the GTF, Suren Surendiran told The Island that the grouping would continue to press for its demand.


Surendiran said: “”Global Tamil Forum, whilst appreciating this important step that the new Government of Sri Lanka has taken, as we said at the time of listing in February 2014, the original listing itself was arbitrary, irrational and a blatant attempt to suppress freedom of speech and dissent by the former Government of Mahinda Rajapaksa. GTF has actively campaigned since then for the entire list of organizations and individuals to be de-listed. Our campaign will continue until that goal is achieved ”
