SLA hastens to destroy skeletal remains of victims killed in Vanni

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 01 June 2010, 16:18 GMT]
Following the disclosure of five male corpses in a toilet pit in Ki’linochchi Monday Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has ordered all skeletal remains of persons assassinated or killed in war lying visibly in Mullaiththeevu district in Vanni, an officer of a humanitarian de-mining organization who had personally seen some skeletal remains along the roads in Mullaiththeevu and the frantic efforts of SLA soldiers to burn them without any trace told TamilNet Tuesday. Colombo has sent in a team of Sinhalese officers from Vavuniyaa to survey the areas and evaluate the extent of de-mining that has to be done, with the assistance of SLA, sources in Vavuniyaa said.

Colombo has permitted de-mining in Mullaiththeevu district but no de-mining will be allowed by the SLA in Mu’l’livaaikkaal and Puthukkudyiruppu area which were the places where the massacre of thousands of Tamil civilians has been systematically carried out by SLA.

Normally, officers of the humanitarian de-mining organizations carry out the survey and evaluation before engaging in de-mining.

The Sinhalese evaluation officers had been sent instead of the local de-mining officials in North who are Tamils in order to conceal the facts about skeletal remains of Vanni victims from being exposed to the world.
