Tamils for Justice Attorney Challenges FBI's Assessment of the Tamil Tigers and the Government of Sri Lanka



    WASHINGTON, Jan. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bruce Fein, former
Associate Deputy Attorney General of the United States, speaking for Tamils
for Justice, issued a statement yesterday challenging a tendentious assessment
of the Tamil Tigers and the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) released by the
Federal Bureau of Investigation on January 10, 2008
http://www.fbi.gov/page2/jan08/tamil_tigers011008.html.  (Mr. Fein's full
statement is posted at www.tamilsforjustice.org.)

    Mr. Fein elaborates the case for Tamil statehood based on the United
States Declaration of Independence in light of long and cruel decades of
oppression at the hands of the GOSL; questions the legal correctness of the
State Department's 1997 listing of the Tamil Tigers as a foreign terrorist
organization; and, identifies suspected crimes of torture, extra-judicial
killings, and crimes against humanity perpetrated by United States citizens or
permanent resident aliens serving in the GOSL or Sri Lankan Parliament in
violation of the United States criminal code.

    Mr. Fein added:  "Circumstantial evidence suggests that the FBI issued
its statement to frighten Tamils and others from supporting Tamils for Justice
in its quest to employ legal means to achieve Tamil statehood, deproscription
of the Tamil Tigers, and prosecution of United States citizens and permanent
resident aliens in United States courts for torture, extra-judicial killings,
and crimes against humanity while serving in the GOSL or Parliament.  The
entire world should know, however, that neither Tamils for Justice nor Bruce
Fein will be crucified on a cross of fear or cowardice."

    Tamils for Justice is an independent unincorporated association which
takes no aid, guidance, or direction from any domestic or foreign organization
connected with the Tamil Tigers or otherwise.  Its website is
www.tamilsforjustice.com.  Mr. Fein is available for comment.
