SLA abductions of Tamil youth continue unabated in camps

[TamilNet, Monday, 30 November 2009, 02:19 GMT]
Several Tamil boys and girls including teenagers interned in the camps are called by name through announcing system by the Sri Lanka Army intelligence officers and are taken to unknown destinations, reports reaching from Vavuniyaa camps said. At least 10 young men and boys were thus 'abducted' on 21 November and around 30 youth, including girls, were taken on 27 November from Zone-0 IDP internment camp in Cheddiku'lam alone last week. They were taken in SLA vehicles and their family members lost all contacts with them since then, sources in Vavuniyaa told TamilNet Sunday.

Systematic extra-judicial abductions and disappearances of Tamil youth, who survived the genocidal war in Vanni and interned in the camps is a regular feature since May, ridiculing the widely trumpeted concern of the International Community and media for Tamil youth under LTTE control before May, said a humanitarian worker in Vavuniyaa.

In July this year, UK based Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers, in a report accused Sri Lanka Army and paramilitary groups for the abductions aimed at 'recruitment'.

SLA's involvement in systematic elimination, ransom, forced labour and sexual abuse of the abducted Tamil youth is widely alleged by a number of humanitarian workers and organisations.

Last week, humanitarian workers, who have authentic evidences for crimes such as rape committed by the SLA on Tamil youth including minors in the camps, challenged the IC whether it can prove its credentials by taking action if evidences are provided to it.
