Information Service News 4th November 2010

A national seminar on what legal and political action could be taken up on UNLF chairman R K Meghen’s arrest was held at Manipur Dramatic Union Hall today. The national seminar was organized jointly under the initiative of TIPS, Centre for Organisation Research and Education, Human Right Alert and Human Right Initiative. Retired judge, C. Upendra, advocate Khaidem Mani, Editor Ereibak, Irengbam Arun, Thoudang Editor, Kh. Loyalakpa, Kim Gangte of All India Trinamool Congress, Ksh. Shanta of CPI(M), Babloo Loitongbam of Human Right Alert and many important personalities were present in the seminar. Those who spoke on the seminar castigated the manner in which Meghen’s arrest is made without telling anything about the where about of the rebel leader. It amount to denial of human rights of a person irrespective of whether he is a rebel leader or not. As per the constitution of India any arrested person should be handed over to the nearest police station within 24 hours and in this case, the constitution is sidelined. Coming down heavily on the stiff silence maintained by three MP’s and Chief Minister in this connection, Kim Gangte said it is still not clear whether Ibobi have written to the centre to find out about the where about of Meghen. She also alleged that C M did not give any pressure to the central Govt. to ascertain the fact. Free lance journalist from Nagaland, Kaka D Eralu asserted the oppressive policy of the central Govt. was still applied to the rest of North Eastern states. He also added that AFSPA which was imposed to quell Naga insurgency has affected many NE states. Denial of Meghen where about to the people is violation of international law and against the norm of law.

Director of People Watch, Tamil Nadu, Henry Stephen maintained all Indians are not against Manipuris and there are many Indians who care and feel concern for the people of the state. He further said that just as the Manipuris are struggling for self determination people of Tamil Nadu are also struggling for self determination. It is not the norm to hide a person after arrest for a long time instead of producing before a competent court. He also assured that the matter will be brought before the core committee meeting of National Human Right Commission on November 29.The Manipuris are not alone in the fight against such injustice meted out to a leader of Manipur and they are solidly behind the people of Manipur. The matter is not about a rebel leader but about the violation and denial of human right. He further maintained that Meghen is in fact a human right defender.—(V) Executive Director of human right Alert, Babloo Loitongbam observed that if peace and normalcy is to maintain in Manipur, AFSPA should be repeal from the state. He also asserted that not disclosing the where about of Meghen is against the law and should not be done.—(V)
