SLA suppresses evidence of skeletal remains unearthed during demining

[TamilNet, Monday, 30 May 2011, 17:29 GMT]
Officials of demining NGOs in Vanni allege that the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers are taking measures to ensure that evidence regarding the skeletal remains of Tamil civilians discovered during the demining operations do not become exposed or become public information, sources in Kilinochchi said. Sri Lanka officials have issued unofficial directives to the demining organizations to bury the skeletons in a demarcated area, according to the NGOs.

Sources from Kilinochchi said an unnamed NGO discovered a skeletal remains of a human being today between Vannearikku'lam and Iyangkan in Kilinochchi district near a SLA security post.

The recovered remains was neither taken to the police nor to the Courts, the NGO official said, requesting anonymity.

Earlier, large numbers of skeletal remains were discovered in Mannaar area. No information was made public regarding these findings.

While Sri Lanka is under pressure from the Western Governments for cooperation for an independent international investigations on alleged war crimes, Colombo is taking all precautions to destroy evidence that could establish complicity leading to culpability to war-crimes, a humanitarian worker told TamilNet.
