    That`s strange, considering the fact that he was murdered.

    My deepest sympathies to you & family at the tragic demise of Late Mr. Sivaram.

    At this point of time Mrs. Sarala Jeyaratnam too grieves of not being able to know the whereabouts of her husband.

    These are terrible tragedies afflicting your families several other families who yet grieve of the senseless loss of life since the CFA which was suppose to usher in the peace.

    The most unfortunate aspect is that, it is the people of the Tamil Community who undergo such terrible losses.

    Words offer no solution & May the good lord take to task to all these murderers of the senseless killings shower blessings on your family & on all those other families to come to terms with the immeasurable grief & move onto a better life with treasured memories of the loved ones.

    Sivaram is only one but there are so many who are being conscripted, tortured and murdered in LTTE camps day after day. The LTTE have killed a large number of journalists and general public since the CFA was signed. Nobody talks about them. No public grief, no newspaper articles or any international media attention. As soon as an LTTE supporter is killed, everybody wakes up. Where are the articles about the Inspector who did a yoemen service to his country????

    This is an amazing internationally cordinated network of media.

    Of course Sivaram had enemies, this is silly. He invited enemies. Tamilnet is a very LTTE paper and he edited it from Colombo misusing the goodwill of his neighbours and ignoring LTTE`s ravaged attacks against innocent people even in his next door. No human would tolerate this ridiculous situation forever. So he obviously have had enemies..poor soul,.....I only wish somebody enlightened him before he died.

    My deepest sympathies to Sivaraman`s family.

    By supporting the LTTE cause one will naturally, create enimies...

    Many have reached the `Pearly Gates...` due to this conflict during the last couple of decades.

    A Terrorist for one group is a Hero for the opposing group.This is normal.

    Sivaram was killed by the LTTE. He had made several mistakes and lately he has written an article and sent it to an anti-LTTE newspaper.

    LTTE has also been interested in his contacts with foreign intelligence agents. For a military analyst it is normal to have contacts with various intelligence agencies. However the paranoid leadership of the LTTE might be worried.For more info:

    Several Tamil dissidents disagreed with Sivaram but it wrong to describe these as enemies that could injure Sivaram in anyway.

    In her grief, Sivaram`s wife speaks the truth;..that her husband lived among the sinhalese, expressed adverse opinions that should have earned him enemies, but still he did not...

    This is what she feels about the depth of freedom which she herself felt living among the sinhalese.. This is about who we really are, and how we respond to adversity, how we recognize the rights of even those who harbour hostile intent towards us while enjoying our hospitality...

    That very reason makes it paramount for us to punish those who committed this crime.

    It is also a good opportunity to take a look at what makes us tick, what our deepest held beliefs are, and find ways to perpetuate them as a legacy for our next generations.

    Elavar,

    LTTE kills everywhere. They also killed 9 Karuna cadres in Talangama, also a sinhala area, in a sanctuary supposedly provided by the Army. LTTE is in the heart of the town, among the tamils in Wellawatte, ja-ela, Wattala, MAttakuliya. They are hiding among the rest of the tamils. The hosts do not expose the LTTE killers due to fear, not because they support them. LTTE is a terrorist organization who has mastered killing, after all!

    This episode proves two things beyond any doubt:

    (1). In Sri Lanka, at least among the sinhalese it is possible for a member of any ethnic minority to live in safety, even while making disagreeable and foul noises.

    We are a democratic minded lot, and have learnt our lesson from the mass-stupidity of July 1983.

    (2). We are so badly in need of building law enforcement agancies into independent institutions that are capable of safeguarding our individual rights and safety. For this to happen, we need to pressurize the govt and politicians to conclusively guarantee the supremacy of the judiciary.

    If not, the next killing will be just a matter of time.
