While saying that they had been reduced to the state of Political Orphans, the Tamil Political Prisoners (TPPs) expressed concern that they are using us to achieve their political ends of getting the votes.
National Prisoners’ day is observed today in that context the TPPs have shared their feelings with their kins.
More than 1 ½ years have passed without any Tamil Representative have visited us. They go to the parliaments passing Anuradhapura prisons. They don’t have the mind to visit us at least on their way to Parliament.
Our representatives are not ready to take our case at the time of discussion on political prisoners. The legal assistance from the Tamil Diaspora is available only to a few TPPs. It should be arranged for all the TPPs get the Legal Assistance, they have said.
