3, 484 soldiers,189 policemen, 1,175 civilians made to disappear :Whereabouts of 609 LTTE conscripts too unknown :

Nearly 5,000 security and police personnel believed to have been abducted and ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”disappearedƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ during the 30 year war had perished at the hands of LTTE terrorists having being subjected to torture, according to recent investigations by Defence Intelligence Units.

Although the LTTE diaspora is harping on losses incurred by the LTTE, no one spoke about or highlighted the injustices caused to these Security Forces personnel and innocent civilians and violations of their human rights, a senior Army officer said.

He said the LTTE engaged in abductions and kidnappings since 1972. They began abducting security forces personnel from 1981 and thereafter continued a spree of such abductions and kidnappings until 2008.

The total breakdown is 3,484 security forces personnel, 1,189 police personnel and 1,175 civilians, that disappeared at the hands of LTTE terrorists. This is in addition to the abduction and forced conscription of 609 Tamils into terrorist ranks.

LTTE cadres still under custody had confided that these abducted forces personnel and civilians were engaged in slavery, tortured and systematically killed by LTTE terrorists from time to time.

Some leading LTTE cadres who are respondents in a case being heard in the Vavuniya High Court in their confessions have said 26 army personnel abducted by the LTTE were interrogated, denied food for several days, shot and their bodies were burnt on tyrepyers by the LTTE after they were sprayed with kerosene.

    LTTE is back in the form of TNA.

  2. Fran Diaz Says:

    Local Law and International Law are made mockery of. Life made cheap in ex-colonies ?

    Shame that so many people in Sri Lanka were abducted, tortured, isolated, and perhaps put to death. That we were not prepared to guard Lanka properly is due to some 500 yrs of Colonial rule where colonists looked to their own advantage only with the ‘divide & rule’ rules in place.

    We cannot expect HR activists to take care of our country. We have to do it OURSELVES. Put proper laws in place to govern the country – add or subtract from existing laws to do so.

    Another point : Stop ILLEGAL MIGRATION INTO SRI LANKA AND DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL MIGRANTS. Illegal migrants generally do not owe any allegiance to Lanka. They are here to acquire land, housing, jobs & eventual citizenship. They form vote blocs for TNA after getting their ID cards – supposed to be easy. SAARC rules allow free access into Lanka. We have to stop that.

    The Laws of Sri Lanka are separate from Buddhism. Buddhism is only the main religion. The purpose of the Law of the Land is to maintain Law & Order, Justice, Peace and Security.

    Study the Law, Guard the Country.
