A SERIOUS WAR CRIME, A CRIME
WHERE ARE THE
800 SRI LANKA POLICEMEN WHO SURRENDRED TO THE LTTE IN JUNE 1990?
Ranil Wickeremasinghe YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS ANSWER! YOU NEED TO
GET IT FROM YOUR CURRENT PEACE PARTNER AND ALLY, LTTE HEAD
Today, we have a SERIOUS WAR CRIME, A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY that is
being conveniently ignored by the Ranil Wickemasinghe headed Government
of Sri Lanka, the Norwegians who are acting as the peace brokers,
the International Community, Amnesty International and other
NGOs, and of course, the LTTE aka Tamil Tiger Terrorists (TTT) who are
the guilty party to this heinous war crime!
In June 1990, during the infamous UNP regime under R. Premadasa as the
President and Ranil Wickremasinghe as the Prime Minister, around 800 Policemen
surrendered to the LTTE/TTT when an yet another period of peace
talks, lasting 14 months between the Government of Sri Lanka and
the LTTE/TTT failed. Yes, this failure was after Premadasa/RanilW Government
had even supplied the LTTE with weapons/training to fight the Indian peacekeeping
force! As per their trademark, at the time of their choosing, the LTTE/TTT
carried out blinding, pre-emptive strikes at the security forces
camps all over the Nation, but more specifically all over the Easter province,
which was virtually under Government control prior to the peace
talks that commenced around March/April 1989. More specifically affected
were the numerous Police stations/posts that were scattered all over the
Eastern province. These Police stations/posts ensured that the Governments
writ was carried out and the LTTE/TTT were kept at bay in the Eastern
province. This sudden onslaught was too much for the security forces to
cope with, as they had been lulled into lethargy by the Premada/RanilW
headed UNP regime of the day, much as today under the present RanilW headed
UNF regime. Then too, these governing Kooks had multi-colored blinkers
on, believing that this time the LTTE/TTT were sincere about
peace. As on prior occasions (and today), the peace talks
had enabled the LTTE/TTT to become an even more formidable enemy than
they were at the commencement of the peace talks. As in the
past peace talks, they had had a free hand in recruiting,
fundraising, smuggling weapons, etc. and when they did the blitzkrieg
in June 1990, it was with a ten-fold increased strength.
Therefore, when the NE provinces Police stations/posts were attacked
and surrounded, it was evident that the odds were stacked against the
poor Policemen who were caught unawares. However, as per the accounts
of a very few escapees from that horror, these brave Policemen fully intended
to fight to the last drop of blood and the last bullet - and take as many
terrorists with them in the process - as surrender was not an option for
them knowing that the LTTE/TTT were not into taking prisoners. Besides,
apparently, the belief with the trapped Policemen was that at least some
of them could survive if they fought without surrender as the reinforcements
specifically the Army special forces would eventually come
to their rescue after fighting their way through the LTTE/TTT lines. As
for the LTTE/TTT, it was fait accompli that the Policemen could be beaten
with a sustained attack. However, cunning as they are, the LTTE/TTT wanted
to do it with minimum or no casualty to their side. Therefore, they proposed
a total surrender with a promise of no harm to these Policemen. As usual,
the idiotic UNP leaders of the day Premadasa/RanilW - fell victim
to the LTTE/TTTs horrific plot. Yes, Premadasa/RanilW - who were
the chief architects of the now ruinous cessation of hostilities
agreement with the LTTE/TTT - immediately instructed the Policemen to
surrender without resistance. Thus, the POLICEMEN, TOTALING AROUND 800
FROM ALL OVER THE EASTERN PROVINCE, SURRENDERED WITHOUT A FIGHT AND WERE
TO BE NEVER SEEN OR HEARD FROM AGAIN! Additionally, this unconditional
surrender enabled the LTTE/TTT to capture the full armory of each Police
station/post, resulting in the loss of Millions of dollars worth of military
Ranil Wickremasinghe, there you have it! I hope you are satisfied! Yes,
Ranil Wicremasinghe, now wasnt that a brilliant piece of strategy?
YES, YOUR ASININE STRATEGY RESULTED IN THE SLAUGHTER OF THESE 800 POLICEMEN!
The LTTE/TTT, true to their usual empty promises in the past (given not
only to the Government of Sri Lanka, but also to the Government of India),
hauled away these Policemen and later slaughtered them in cold blood.
Although details are scarce, it has been reported that they were summarily
machine-gunned. Other accounts speak of these Policemen being used as
targets for live-fire practices and as objects for stabbing/hacking practices
for the TTE/TTT new/young cadre who showed reticence for killing and waging
war. Therefore, naturally, their bodies have not been recovered to this
Today there are many wives and children who lost husbands and fathers
due to this Premadasa/ Ranil horrific fiasco. Yes, to this day, they do
not know what became of their loved ones. RANILW YOU HAVE A DUTY TO ANSWER
THESE PEOPLE! YOU HAVE TO ASK THIS QUESTION FROM YOUR PEACE
PARTNER AND FRIEND, THE LTTE/TTT MURDER KING VELUPILLAI PRABHAKARAN!
OBVIOUSLY AS RANIL WICKREMASINGHE WILL NOT WANT TO DWELL INTO THIS HORRIFIC
EPISODE FOR WHICH HE IS FULLY RESPONSIBLE (out of sheer embarrassment
and also not to endanger his peace with the LTTE/TTT), I URGE
ALL LOVED ONES (KITH & KIN) OF THESE POLICEMEN THAT THEY SHOULD, AS
A CLASS, TAKE THEIR CASE TO THE WORLD WAR CRIMES COURT TO SEEK ANSWERS.
YES, DO NOT LET RANILW OFF THE HOOK!
Today, RanilW is in a mighty haste to exchange prisoners with the LTTE/TTT,
which is an exercise essentially to release the captured LTTE/TTT suicide
killers . He or his cronies have not once raised the issue of the 800
Policemen as that would be an embarrassment to them and their peace
partner, the LTTE/TTT murder king.
Once again, today, the country is heading toward disaster due to another
round of asinine thinking on the part of RanilW and his cronies. Once
again, total trust has been placed with the LTTE/TTT and the Nations
security apparatus has been virtually dismantled. This bunch of Kooks
has now virtually underwritten our demise as a nation a nation
that has had a proud history over 2500 years. Indeed, at the Thailand
talks recently, a-fun-time-was-had-by-all, i.e. Ranils shortsighted
henchmen, LTTE aka Tamil Tiger Terrorists (TTT) theoretician Anton
Balasingham, and of course, the Norwegians who are our new found colonial
masters (i.e. colonial parasites) dismantling the Nation
of Sri Lanka. Yes, all-is-well with these parties who are essentially
preparing the Requiem for the independent, sovereign Nation of Sri Lanka.
Indeed, handshakes, back pats, and smiles all round!
HOWEVER, WHERE ARE THE 800 POLICEMEN?
