Appeal To Arrest Tamil Australian Citizens for allegedly committing Crimes under Foreign Incursions and Recruitment Act

Melbourne, 31 August, (Asiantribune.com):

It has been brought to the notice of the Attorney General Australia about the crimes committed by Australian Citizens and urged to take action according Act 13 of 1978(Foreign Incursions and Recruitment).

Earlier Julie Bishop (MP) Foreign Minister on her discussions with the Sri Lankan counterpart Mr. G.L.Peris was told that the agents of the LTTE Diaspora in Australia are still interfering with the internal matters in Sri Lanka leading to destabilizing the progress of the country. This is made possible as the Tamil organizations inclusive of Australian Tamil Congress (ATC) in Australia have not been proscribed.

Following this discussion an Australian Citizen Vajeera.Warnakulasuriya from Melbourne has appealed to the Attorney General to take appropriate actions against three Australian Citizens under Foreign Incursions and Recruitment Act 13 of 1978.

Given below the full text of the appeal made by Vajeera.Warnakulasuriya of Melbourne:

To the Attention of the Attorney General of Australia,

Hon.Mr.George Brandis (Senator)

Dear Sir,

Crimes committed by LTTE agents of Tamil Diaspora under Foreign Incursions and Recruitment Act 13 of 1978.

I wish to draw your urgent attention to a serious violation of the above Act in the Australian Penal code, thereby the perpetrators of this Act technically should be dealt with the full force of the act, and anything short of this action reduces the Act to a mockery.

This request has direct bearing to the recent media announcement by the Mr. Scott Morrison on account of the Australian born citizens who went to Middle Eastern trouble zone countries and engaged in Terrorist activities. He suggested barring the re-entry and canceling the pass ports of any Australians engaged in terrorist activity.

Recently Julie Bishop (MP) Foreign Minister on her discussions with the Sri Lankan counterpart Mr. G.L.Peris was told that the agents of the LTTE Diaspora in Australia are still interfering with the internal matters in Sri Lanka leading to destabilizing the progress of the country. This is made possible as the Tamil organizations inclusive of Australian Tamil Congress (ATC) in Australia have not been proscribed.

Unfortunately the funds raised on false pretext are misused to destabilize the country’s progress in the North & East of Sri Lanka. Furthermore these funds are utilized to produce fictional bizarre film clips to defame the Government and the Defense forces personnel. Recently there had been few incidences of low level terrorist acts which were culled in the bud by the law enforcing units. The Defense secretary’s strategy to keep limited armed units helped restore normalcy in the region.

It has become a popular technique in the West to portray Sri Lanka as a “pariah” state with despicable video clips shown repeatedly. It is time for sane people to think why the media is only interested to show negativity of this saga at a time Sri Lanka is making a gigantic effort for reconciliation.

Fortunately the Sri Lankan Government has air tight proof that three of the seemingly innocent eye witnesses who appeared in those video clips in Australia are in fact hardcore combatants. Now if the Acts13 of 1978(Foreign Incursions and Recruitment) wordings are enforced in totality these three should be convicted. The punishment should be in accordance to the seriousness of the crimes committed. That’s as serious as any Australian participating is terrorist activity in the Middle Eastern zones, a matter for the AFP & the Attorney General to enact the full force of the Constitutional laws.

I now submit you details enumerating what crimes the following Australian Citizens have committed according to this Act 13 of 1978(Foreign Incursions and Recruitment)

1. Arunachalam Jagateeswaran Victoria
a. Construction of underground armories and bunkers of the LTTE.
b. Construction of the underground mansion of the LTTE Chief Prabakaran.
c. Taking a swimming coach from Australia to train Sea Tigers, naval fiters of the LTTE.
d. He was the trusted guardian to escort the parents of the leader of the LTTE and hand
over to the Sri Lankan forces in the last days of the conflict with the terrorists.

2. Dr. Sam Pari NSW
a. Joined the LTTE on 29th Dec 2004 and agreed to raise funds for the LTTE through TYO.
She was one of the Chief fund raisers for the LTTE and had direct connections to LTTE’s
international chief, Castro.
b. Received weapons training from LTTE.

3. Meena Krishnamurthie
a. Received six months military training from the LTTE. (Was photographed with cyanide
capsule normally carried by the LTTE fighting cadres).
b. Name given to her by the LTTE – Elanadi has been established.
c. She was a member of the fighting Cadre of Malathi unit of the LTTE.
d. She was a member of the TYO and LTTE of Australia.
e. Was the International coordinator of TYO directly supervised by the LTTE.
f. Handled the LTTE foreign networks including propaganda, fund raising and procurement of arms until the end of the conflict.
g. Appointed as the Women’s Affairs coordinator of the LTTE.
h. LTTE had her sent to South Africa, Malaysia and Europe on LTTE projects.

The Ministry of defence authorities in Sri Lanka can provide authentical evidence to support these said allegations on the above three persons.

If the Australians of Islamic origins have been observed as committed serious crimes that come within the purview of the Foreign Incursions and Recruitment act 1978, so are the LTTE agents of Tamil Diaspora who committed similar acts and still engage in destabilizing Sri Lanka in her progress using the funds collected under false pretext.

“What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.”

I believe Australian Government cannot tolerate her citizens to engage in off shore terrorists’ activities and go unpunished which create a terrible precedence reducing the constitutional law to a toothless Tiger!

I eagerly anticipate your justice in this matter.

Yours Sincerely,
Vajeera.Warnakulasuriya
Melbourne
