The SATF Congratulates Opposition Leader Sampanthan

Benoni, 09 September, (Asiantribune. Com):

The South African Tamil Federation places on record its congratulations to the TNA leader Hon R. Sampanthan leader of the TNA on being recognised as the official opposition leader in the Sri Lankan Parliament.

The SATF has held many meeting with Mr. Sampanthan in South Africa, and we found him to be very involved at an early stage with the politics of Sri Lanka.

Whilst our meetings with Mr. Sampanthan and his delegation was robust and sometimes very candid, we can safely say he is a matured intelligent politician who can get some resolution on the National Question for the Tamil speaking people.

Mr. Sampanthan is also well placed now, to interrogate the UNHRC report, on the atrocities that took place in Sri Lanka, and ensure that justice prevails for the people that was killed in the 2009.

The SATF is the spokesperson for the 650000 Tamil speaking people in South Africa that has Provincial Structures in 8 Provinces of South Africa, wishes Mr. Sampanthan well in his new role as the official opposition leader in the Sri Lankan Parliament.
