LTTE threatened Oslo journalist to meet Police Head

More than 12 youngsters, subjected to LTTE extortions and death threats in Norway, were to seek an urgent meeting with Norway's Director of Police Ingelin Killengren since the Norwegian Police have so far failed to take LTTE threats and atrocities with deserving seriousness.

The disclosure on Norwegian National Television (NRK) on Wednesday came in the wake of an interview given by the Oslo-based Tamil journalist, Nadaraja Sethurupan, who had been assaulted, harassed and threatened with death by Norway-Oslo based Tigers more than 10 times in the past two years.

Sethurupan who has been living in Norway for more than eight years, has covered the Norway initiated Sri Lankan peace process for media and has been a contributor to many media networks.

The Oslo-based journalist has gone on record saying that Tigers during an LTTE protest before Norwegian Parliament building (Stortinget) on May 15 was brutally assaulted.

"A few weeks ago, outside the US Embassy in Oslo, myself and my family were given final death threats by Tigers, asking me to stop writing against them.

The Oslo-based journalist has gone on record saying that Tamil Tigers during an LTTE protest before Norwegian Parliament building (Stortinget) on May 15 was brutally assaulted.

"A few weeks ago, outside the US Embassy in Oslo, myself and my family were given final death threats by Tigers, asking me to stop writing against them. They do not like what I write and threaten me to write what they want." "When they assaulted me on May 15 outside Norwegian parliament squeezing my testicles and kicking in my stomach, I managed to get hold of a Policeman and kept him informed.

Tigers are so powerful in Norway that they hold all Tamil civilians hostage against extortions and those opposing them run the risk of being threatened with death by Tigers."

Those threats have been reported to the Police many times, but nothing has happened up until now. There is an ongoing deep divisions among Tamil Tigers and I believe those who advocate continuation of LTTE violent campaign would succeed.

"Threats on me and other Tamils in Norway would continue, though Tigers have been wiped out in Sri Lanka.

Tigers have held Norwegian Tamils captive in Norway," the journalist was featured saying.
