Cameron Tamil Visit

November 15, 2013 by  

Cameron Tamil Visit, David Cameron has been mobbed by 250 Tamil protesters in north Sri Lanka, who claim their relatives have been murdered by the state.

In chaotic scenes, the Prime Minister’s convoy was surrounded by demonstrators all trying to show him their family pictures and tell their stories of suffering in the country’s 26-year civil war.

The protesters were the relatives of “the disappeared” – those who have just vanished without explanation but whom, it is alleged, have been either captured or killed by the state.

Sky’s Deputy Political Editor Joey Jones, who is travelling with the Prime Minister, said: “He was in a vehicle, in his Jeep, but people spilled through the police line trying to get up towards the Prime Minister …

“One or two young women really pressed up against the car as it was departing, trying to get photographs and testimony to what they fear may have happened to their loved ones to David Cameron.”

Mr Cameron has travelled to the northern city of Jaffna, to meet Tamils scarred by years of ethnic fighting in the country, ahead of his meeting with the country’s president in which he will raise the question of Sri Lanka’s human rights record.

Protesters broke through the police lines
Earlier he tweeted that he was the first president or prime minister to travel to the Tamil-dominated north of the country since Sri Lanka gained independence in 1948.

He tweeted: “I want to shine a light on chilling events there first hand.”
