UN and IC signal civilian carnage
[TamilNet, Thursday, 16 April 2009, 19:14 GMT]
The observation of UN official Holmes, that a ceasefire is not possible and the LTTE is preventing the civilians from leaving, followed by the chorus of British and French foreign ministers coming out with the same accusation on the LTTE in strong words, signal UN and IC assenting to a civilian carnage in the so-called safety zone, political observers in Colombo said. They also cited Rajapaksa’s visit to Ki’linochchi and unconfirmed reports on the withdrawal of even pro-government media from the battlefront as final preparations for Colombo’s onslaught.
Rajapaksa made a ‘goodwill’ visit to Ki’linochchi, government sources said. But, no people now live in Ki’linochchi, except the soldiers.
While more than 1500 shells fired by the SLA, and around 600 of them hit the so-called safety zone, killing 57 civilians on Thursday, the government spokesman Brigadier Nanayakkara over telephone to New York Times denied any activity of the government on the battlefield Thursday.
All witnesses out, IC winking, India abetting and international media failing in its duty, the civilian massacre and subjugation can be completed with much ease, Colombo observers said.
“It is now a genocide openly perpetrated by the IC”.
Directly or indirectly everyone has now conceded that the LTTE is the sole saviour of the Tamil civilians, they said.
