SL military conceals mass graves at Vara地i in Thenmaraadchi

[TamilNet, Monday, 21 April 2014, 23:21 GMT]
The occupying Sri Lankan military relocating its 522 Brigade Headquarters, which was the artillery and command base at the Northern front during the war, has been removing the skeletons including the sand from an alleged mass grave site at the locality of the old base in recent weeks, reliable sources in Thenmaraadchi told TamilNet on Monday. After removing all the traces, the bunkers have been filled with sand brought from elsewhere. Despite the claim that it had moved the camp to a new locality, at Aasaippi値値ai-yeattam at Mirusuvil, the SL military was present at the old site for several weeks to ensure that all traces have been removed, the sources further said.

The notorius Vara'ni camp was situated at Point Pedro Kodikaamam Road since 1996 when Jaffna peninsula was captured by the genocidal military of Sri Lanka.

The command base, which was blocking the main road, was situated near Vara地i MMV School at the private lands belonging to more than 80 families.

It was the main supply camp and the artillery base to the Northern frontline during the war.

Vara地i camp was a notorious place where the Tamils abducted in Thenmaraadchi region were taken to torture chambers and slain. This includes the 8 youths who were abducted from a temple.

Although the SL military had announced that it had relocated the base to Aasaippi値値ai-yeattam at Mirusuvil, SL troopers were stationed at the locality till 20 April.

The families that went to inspect their lands also confirmed that there were big bunkers that have been filled in recent days. The neighbours in the area also verify that heavy military vehicles were transporting sands away from the site in recent days.

There were also reports of SL military concealing a mass grave site in Trincomalee in recent weeks.

The SL military is particular in concealing mass graves at places where military bases were situated, especially after the discovery of a mass killing field at Maanthai in Mannaar in former SL military 蘇igh security area.

The resettling people have also come across human skeletons from the abandoned wells at Pallappai in Vadamaraadchi where the SL military had a military base.
