Rajapaksa's son starts human trafficking from Vanni to Australia

[TamilNet, Friday, 22 June 2012, 16:14 GMT]
Namal Rajapaksa, the son of SL president Mahinda Rajapaksa, has been behind a human trafficking ring, which operates from Mullaiththeevu in Vanni, sending Eezham Tamils to Australia from the seas off Mullaiththeevu at a price tag of one million SL rupees per person, reveal families that have already sent their sons and daughters through the ring. Snatching away the entire coastal stretch of Vanni from Eezham Tamils, the Rajapaksa regime is also evicting them exploiting all possible avenues, concerned civil sources in Vanni said adding that the operation also discredits the asylum seekers who really need protection from the South Asian establishments.

A batch of 25 individuals, from Vanni and other parts of the island, were recently sent from Ka'l'lap-paadu in Mullaiththeevu.

The families had to pay 200,000 rupees per person in advance.

The remaining sum has to be given to the operators once their kith and kin have reached Australia, the sources further said.

The guarantee for the settlement of the remaining money is the family members who live under the military rule of the Rajapaksa regime.

Another batch has been recently recruited, the sources further said.

It is claimed that the transport by Namal Rajapaksa's ring is ‘secure’, as the victims are transported in ships to go near the coast of the destination as far as possible. The ‘asylum seekers’ are then boarded into smaller vessels to land.

The operation is backed by the SL military governor of North Maj Gen (retd) GA Chandrasri, SL Ministers Rishard Badurdeen, Douglas Devananda and the SL Navy, at the instruction of Namal Rajapaksa, who often visits Mullaiththeevu to oversee the secret operation, which is carried out by SLFP operatives and agents in Mullaiththeevu.

Claiming that he is ‘re-constructing’ and ‘developing’ Mullaiththeevu, Mr Namal Rajapaksa is enaged in commercial exploitation of the coastal tracts of Vanni. As an elected parliamentarian from Hambantota district, Namal Rajapaksa, has also vowed to conduct the so-called Sri Lankan national sports meet in Vanni.

In the meantime, Diaspora Eezham Tamils who visit Vanni and claim their lands and properties back, have been threatened by the SL military establishment.

Recently, a Canadian Eezham Tamil was brutally slain, after he was demanding back his shops and other properties that were being exploited by the top hierarchy of the SL military.
