SLMM's delay in publicizing evidence aiding killing spree- Ilamparithi

[TamilNet, Sunday, 14 May 2006, 17:01 GMT]
"Though the injured victims, the relatives of the killed and our Political office have submitted concrete evidence to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Jaffna proving the killings of innocent civilians in the Jaffna peninsula after the Geneva talks by security forces and paramilitaries, the evidence has not been made public by the SLMM. Unfortunately, this delay has resulted in marked escalation in killings," said Ilamparithi, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Jaffna district political wing head, giving particulars of his urgent complaint to the Chief of SLMM, Jaffna district, Sunday.

"Withholding this evidence pertaining to numerous killings of innocent civilians has in fact encouraged the killers to continue the murders unchecked," added Ilamparuthi in the complaint.

"Unprovoked and preplanned killings of innocent civilians including children in the islets of Jaffna are being carried out by the paramilitary Eelam People Democratic Party (EPDP) along with the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) soldiers.

"Two pickup vehicles loaded with inebrieted EPDP cadres from their Sridar theatre camp in Jaffna town on Saturday around 6.30 p.m left to Allaipity where they joined the SLN and entered Selathurai Amalan's home firing and lobbing hand grenades killing 8 people on the spot including two small children.

"Three civilians injured in the attack were rushed to the Jaffna Teaching Hospital where one of them died.

"The EPDP cadres ordered the people in the neighbouring houses to switch off all lights before forcing into Amalan's house near the Allaipity church located only 100 meters form the SLN camp.

"The SLN and EPDP, under the influence of liquor, simultaneously attacked civilians in Bungalavady, Velani West, Pulliyankoodal and Naranthanai. We consider the killings and attacks by these groups in the islets of Jaffna a blatant attempt to terrorize the islet residents.

"The unprovoked killings of civilians and children in their homes are grave violations of the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA), basic norms of humans rights, and in total defiance of the United Nations Charter for the rights of children.

"Even today (Sunday) two innocent civilians, Rasiah Pullendran 30 of Avarangal and Pasuvalingam Kandeepan 25 of Atchuveli have been killed by the SLA.

"I have appealed to the SLMM to publicize all the relevant evidence related to these violations which would put a stop to the killings of innocent civilian's by the SL armed forces and the EPDP spiraling upwards each day," Ilamparithi said.
