Protesters spell out acid test conditions for OMP in Mullaiththeevu

[TamilNet, Saturday, 02 June 2018, 20:45 GMT]
Relatives of the enforced disappeared Eezham Tamils in Mullaiththeevu district on Saturday staged a protest denouncing the sittings conducted by the Office of the Missing Persons (OMP) at the District Secretariat office. Around 400 family members protested in front of the DS office while only about 50 attended the sittings. The OMP is a farce and the so-called human rights defenders from the South, who have been working to conceal the root crime of genocide, are being awarded jobs at the OMP, the protesters said.

When the OMP Chairman and President's Counsel Saliya Pieris urged the protesters to attend the sittings and register their complaints, the majority of the protesters said they had no faith in the OMP.

If the people on the ground have to take the OMP serious, then the Office should first prove its sincerity by making public the list of persons who were handed over to the occupying SL military at the final hours of Vanni war. Or, it should at least produce 100 of the enforced disappeared to the public, the protesters categorically told Saliya Pieris.

The OMP has been set-up with the intent to deceive justice to the relatives of the enforced disappeared Eezham Tamils, the protesters told TamilNet.
