LTTE report details 174 killings by SL forces, paramilitaries

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 May 2006, 07:17 GMT]
174 Tamil civilians have been killed, since Geneva talks on 24 February till 15 May, 2006, by the Sri Lankan armed forces and their paramilitaries, according to a 16-page report, with statistics, issued by the Political Head Quarters of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), on Tuesday. The report said unless the Scandinavian truce monitors become more proactive in ruling extrajudicial killings for what they are, a heavy burden will be on SLMM shoulders and on the shoulders of the International Community for failing to stop the slaughter of Tamil civilians by the Sri Lankan Armed forces. The report details the pattern of paramilitary and Sri Lankan forces extrajudicial killings.

"The 50 year history of genocide has been poorly documented due to the ongoing devastation of the community, loss of skill due to displacement, and terror among people living in Sri Lanka Government controlled areas. This is a point that must be strongly registered in the minds of the SLMM and others from the International Community who have come to help to resolve the situation," the report said.

"Without a heightened awareness of this past genocidal history the helpers could naively make the situation worse fo the Tamils."
