Pro-LTTE supporters protest against Sirisena’s London visit

LTTE supporters staged a protest in London today against the ongoing visit to the UK by President Maithripala Sirisena.

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) said that it initiated a campaign titled “#GoBackMY3” to protest against the President’s visit to London to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government’s meeting.

The TGTE urged the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) to suspend Sri Lanka from the Commonwealth, until the Government fully implements the recommendations made by the UN Human Rights Council.

Failing this, the TGTE said that Sri Lanka should be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and a UN Conducted Referendum should be conducted for the Tamils to decide their future and to ensure a peaceful, permanent political solution.
