Exiled Tamil priest wants peace, truth and justice in Sri Lanka

(By: Paul Dobbyn)President of the Global Tamil Forum, Fr Emmanuel once told the State Department in Washington that he was "father" to these priests. The five were among 10 priests killed in the final bloody battle between Government and rebel forces in Sri Lanka's north in May 2009. Once called the "Archbishop Tutu" of the Tamil struggle by United States human rights activist Reverend Jesse Jackson, the 77-year-old priest was recently in Brisbane to spread the message that his people are suffering widespread human-rights abuses in the aftermath of the country's 30-year civil war.
