No such request was made to govt - Sivajilingam

I have made no request to the government seeking an opportunity for the children of Parvathi Ammal, the mother of Velupillai Prabhakaran, to come and visit their mother, Secretary of the Tamil National Freedom Alliance M.K. Sivajilingam stated.

Several Indian media had reported today (06 November) that Mr. Sivajilingam had made a request to the government seeking permission for the family of Parvathi Ammal, who are presently living abroad, to visit her and that the Sri Lankan government had rejected the request.

It was also published in Indian media reports that the mother of the slain LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran had allegedly said that she was in need to see her children, however she and her children are in fear regarding the security in the matter.

However when Ada Derana inquired M.K. Sivajilingam on the above statements he sternly stated that he had not made any request from the government.

“In order to present the government with such a request, initially I would have to be notified by the children of Parvathi Ammal that they wish to visit their mother”

However they have not requested me of such and there is a security issue regarding them coming to Sri Lanka, Mr. Sivajilingam expressed to Ada Derana.

Furthermore he added that there is no improvement in the health of Parvathi Ammal, who is currently receiving medical treatment at the Valvettithurai hospital in Jaffna.
