Sri Lanka’s terror abductions, arrests, summons mark Christmas Eve in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 25 December 2012, 22:43 GMT]
28-year-old Mrs Soundararajan Sivamalar, wife of an LTTE member killed in the war, and presently working at SL government’s Uduvil divisional secretariat, was abducted at midnight at her house recently. Sri Lanka’s Terrorist Investigation Department (TID) now informally acknowledged to the SL Human Rights Commission office in Jaffna that the ‘arrest’ was their act. Complaints of such abductions and ‘arrests’ of around 45 people have been registered in recent days at the SL human rights office in Jaffna, officials acknowledged on Monday. Many more abductions and arrests in the north have gone unregistered as the family members have been sternly warned by the occupying SL forces, not to register complaints at the SL human rights office. Meanwhile, many girl students of the Jaffna University have been ‘summoned’ over telephone by the TID in Vavuniyaa.

The summoning of the girl students of the University of Jaffna over the phone by the TID in Vavuniyaa now takes place directly, without any intimation to the university authorities.

Direct telephonic summoning of the university students has become an unchallenged and established practice now, following such a summon served to the President of the University Teachers’ Association and Head of English Language Teaching Unit at the university, Mr K. Rajakumaran.

Many girl students have silently gone with their parents to Vavuniyaa to submit themselves to TID investigations.

TID at Vavuniyaa is run directly by SL Defence Secretary and presidential sibling Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

Meanwhile, most of the abductions of Tamil youth in recent days that have gone unregistered, took place in midnights or at dusk times, news sources said.

Occupying Sri Lanka’s Human Rights Commission’s office in Jaffna nowadays don’t encourage direct complaints of abductions coming to them, news sources in Jaffna further said.

The HR office tells the victim’s family members to lodge complaint at SL police stations.

Since the very SL police is a party to the abductions and arrests, how to lodge the complaint with them, ask the family members of the victims.

Of all the outfits of the occupying Sinhala state, the Human Rights Commission office is the only one for civilians to approach in a civil manner. Even this outfit is now directed to openly play on the side of State’s terrorism, public in Jaffna say. Some days ago, citing weekend, a threatened university student was prevented from surrendering at the HR office.

After the IC-India-UN abetted genocidal war, the Eezham Tamils are subjected to State terrorism of Sri Lanka, in various ways and at various stages to complete the genocide through structural means and through individual terrorisation of every member of the nation of Eezham Tamils. In fact the process got accelerated after the USA and India enacted a resolution sanctioning the LLRC process at the UNHRC, political observers in Jaffna said.

What’s happening now through the terrorisation process of the public, students, women and the former LTTE activists, and through the political manoeuvring process of the TNA are not two separate phenomena, but are interconnected as preparatory grounds for the next rounds at Geneva in March, aiming at further engineering of the total subjugation and annihilation of the nation of Eezham Tamils, the observers commented.

All the forces that don’t recognize the genocide, the nation of Eezham Tamils and its right to self-determination in the island are invariably parties to the crime of genocide through State terrorism that takes place now, the observers further said.

The terror campaign currently carried out especially against the released cadres of the LTTE, its former activists and even family members of them, is aimed at prodding them to join for safety with outfits and paramilitaries run by the genocidal government in collaboration with some of its international abetters, political observers in Jaffna suspect.

After the Indo-Lanka Accord of 1987 and the occupation of the country of Eezham Tamils by the ‘Indian Peace Keeping Force’, all the Tamil militant groups except the LTTE were made to renounce the independence aspiration of Eezham Tamils. The unquestioning support the LTTE gained from the people mainly came from its commitment and steadfastness to the cause.
