High ranking Tiger officials in SLA custody feared assassinated

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 06 April 2010, 15:39 GMT]
Basil Rajapakse, senior advisor of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse and his brother said Monday in Colombo that if the name of anyone not found in the list of 11,000 persons held in the rehabilitation camps for Liberation Tigers, published in government websites they could be considered no longer living, in a conference he held with the Non-government Organizations now functioning in Vanni. In response to a question raised by HUDEC Caritas representative on the situation of the persons gone missing and arrested during the final stage of the war on Vanni Basil Rajapakse referred to the list of 11,000 persons held in the rehabilitation camps but failed to mention the websites he referred to, an NGO representative who attended the conference said.

Basil Rajapakse’s response which hinted at the possibility of the top Liberation Tiger combatants and political wing persons who had been injured when taken into custody and those who had surrendered themselves being assassinated has raised fear and concern among the family members of the said persons, Tamil circles in Colombo said.

The NGO representatives said that they did not ask Basil Rajapakse which websites he referred to.
