Oslo, 25 August 2004, (asiantribune.com): F.Ruvik of R senter Norway , have already taken legal action against Utrop a pro-LTTE fortnightly magazine from Oslo, Norway and its editor Manoranjan Vivekanathan for the smearing campaign against him.
Ruvik was one of the key organizers of the one day conference held on 20 August at Oslo, Norway by the World Alliance for Peace in Sri Lanka – “Road maps to peace in Sri Lanka.
In a statement released yesterday to “Asian Tribune,” Ruvik said, “I have taken legal action against those who has been smearing my involvement in conference and also filed charges with the press association.
On 20th August, Utrop which claims itself as one of the ethnic fortnightly, – a pro-LTTE magazine published from Oslo, published an article critical of Ruvik one of the sponsors of the Sri Lanka Peace Conference.Utrop was earlier an online journal and for the last three months printed version were also available and the magazine is heavily funded by the Norwegian Government.
The pro LTTE Utrop alleged Ruvik as “A man convicted of murder is the joint organizer of a conference on Sri Lankain Oslo.”
Utrop added: “The Norwegian, the joint organizer of the Sinhala nationalist conference, was convicted for murdering an immigrant restaurant owner in Oslo and sentenced to preventive detention for ten years in 1997.”
One Tor Bach, a Norwegian journalist said to have broken the story in Utrop’s online edition about Ruvik of the Norwegian R Sentre.
Ruvik in his statement said: “I will also write to the Norwegian Department for Culture and ask them to stop payments to this newspaper. All advertisers of the newspaper will also be approached. In a letter to the editor Majoran Vivekananthan faxed to him today (Tuesday) he was informed about the actions that will be taken.”
Ruvik added: This will be an important step creating the awareness about the LTTE involvement in media organisations and the methods they use attacking people against terrorism. I know for a fact the Norwegian Foreign Ministry is furious about the smearing articles about “extremist meeting” and we believe the LTTE “political wing” will take action against these “loose LTTE cannons” that now are playing into our hand and destroying the image of LTTE build in the last 20 years in Norway. The “extremist attack” from the LTTE sympathizers must be regarded asan added bonus to this conference success, because it has already started to backfire on the LTTE.
