The Sunday Leader

Karuna Ready To Face Inquiry

Former minister Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman denied allegations directed at him by the recent report released by the office of United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Amongst many serious nature of crimes, the report highlighted extensive recruitment and use of children in armed conflict by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and by the paramilitary groups specifically highlighting ‘Karuna group’ in the report.

When The Sunday Leader questioned about those allegations, Karuna Amman refused being involved in any such activities. “Soon after I broke away from the LTTE, I fled to India.

When I returned to Sri Lanka, I joined the SLFP, thus joining the mainstream politics.

I neither formed any group nor was involved in any paramilitary groups after breaking away from the LTTE,” he said.

He added that even though the UN report has mentioned about a ‘Karuna Group’, he was not aware of any such group formed under him.

Karuna Amman further said that there were other paramilitary groups such as the group under former Chief Minister of the Eastern Province Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan.

“If they are to inquire into these matters, I have no issue because I have not been involved in committing those actions. Therefore, I am ready to face any inquiry,” he said.

Karuna Amman was a former militant who fought for LTTE over 20 years – later he held a prominent position as the leader of the Tamil Makkal Viduthalai Pulikal (TMVP), a breakaway faction of the LTTE. In 2008, he was appointed to parliament through the national list of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA).

      Karuna murdered 600 innocent policemen who surrendered to him and 300 worshippers who were engaged in prayer at the Kathankudy Mosque.

      But he has not done any wrong and is an innocent man. He should go to gallows and remember how he enjoyed the prostitutes and Kasippu provided to him by the former president.

  2. Without these guys, we could have been still fighting the terrorists.

    “Amman” is not a tamil name for individuals.
    It is the name of a hindu deity.
    Karuna should give evidence on how he was sent to UK on a false passport provided by Gtabaya R and was jailed there for doing so.

    It looks like this bugger is a cheap piece of “sh.t”, Only a bottle arrack and a prostitute will convince him to go against his mentors and the paymasters. Well, not bad . Dirty Gota has to worry too much about this type of fellows that he befriended to loot the nation.
