‘Death certificates’ issued to 500 of 3,500 Tamils subjected to enforced disappearance in Ampaa'rai

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 21 August 2019, 18:17 GMT]
The families of around 500 Tamil persons subjected to enforced disappearance at the hands of the occupying SL military and the paramilitaries operated by it have been utilised with false ‘death certificates’ in Ampaa'rai district. The death certificates claim that the victims were abducted by ‘terrorists’ and that their dead bodies were not found. It was the SL military which abducted these victims. The SL authorities have deceptively issued these certificates promising financial assistance to the affected families. Everybody knows that the victims were Tamil youth abducted by the SL military, says Thambirasa Selvarany, the coordinator of kith and kin of Tamils subjected to enforced disappearance in Ampaa'rai district.



The occupying SL military was responsible for the abduction of 3,500 Tamil persons between 1985 and 2010 in the district of Ampaa'rai.

The SL military took the victims during the cordon and search operations as well as through abductions carried out by the paramilitaries operated by it.

Around 500 of victims subjected to enforced disappearance before the year 2000 have been utilised with the false death certificates, Ms Selvarany said.

These deceptive certificates must be cancelled, and the victims should be appropriately registered as missing persons, she said.
