TNA warns of more bloodshed in the coming days

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 13 May 2009, 12:20 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has pointed out that 3000 Tamils have been killed and more than 1000 have been wounded in the last 3 days in the Vanni region, in a press conference held in Colombo on Tuesday night. Tamil National Alliance leader MP R.Sampanthan states, “The Government of Sri Lanka is mass killing Tamil civilians after denying them food and medicine. This is the reality. More bloodshed can happen in the next few days. We appeal to the International community to immediately stop this systematic slaughtering of civilians.”

TNA parliamentarians further pointed out that more than 10,000 Tamil civilians have been killed while more than 20,000 wounded within the last 3 months.

TNA leader R. Sampanthan, Jaffna district MPs Mavai Senathirajah, Suresh Premachandran, Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam, N. Srikantha, Batticola district MPs Ariyanenthiran, Thangeswary, Kanagasabai, Trincomalee district MP Thurairatnasingam, Amparai district MP Pathmanathan and Chandrakanthan participated in the press conference.

MPs, R.Sampanthan, Suresh Premachandran and Srikantha explained the present situation in detail.

MP Sampanthan states, “there is genocide taking place in Vanni; the entire international community is being silent; we don’t want just statements of condemnations and pledges without any action; the killings of civilians must immediately be stopped; this is our urgent request”. MP Sampanthan also stated that legal action will be taken against the Sri Lankan Government’s genocidal acts.

MP Sampanthan further states, “It is the Government forces that are killing the Tamil civilians using various heavy weapons; there is no doubt about that; Mu’l’livaikkaal hospital has been attacked many times; medical staff have been killed and injured.”

“Since the war started MP Kanagaratnam is in the conflict zone with the people and he informs us daily of the immense suffering of the people; doctors and civilians have been killed in the daily attacks on Mu’l’livaaikikaal hospital.”

“The dead and wounded in the shell attacks by the Government forces, lay scattered on the roads and inside bunkers without the wounded being unable to reach medical help. The makeshift hospitals severely lack medical facilities, medicines and medical staff to care for the wounded.”

“There is no UN, International media or NGO presence in the conflict zone; there are no witnesses to the carnage taking place. In this war without witnesses, the Government of Sri Lanka is openly lying and saying there are no civilian casualties.”
