SL military steps up harassments on ex-LTTE members in Vanni

[TamilNet, Monday, 30 July 2012, 23:30 GMT]
The occupying Sri Lanka Army in Vanni has started to pressurize ex-LTTE members, who have been released from SLA imprisonment to present themselves almost on a daily basis at nearby SLA camps to their houses in Vanni, according to information reaching from several villages in Mullaiththeevu and Ki'linochchi districts. The ex LTTE members are also being harassed by the SL military intelligence officers to work for them as underground informants. Earlier, the former Tamil fighters had been instructed to register at nearby SL military camps on a monthly basis. Later, they had to register on a weekly basis, and now they are instructed to show themselves up almost every day. The latest harassments are reported from all the corners of Vanni, especially after a psy-ops military team from Colombo came to Vanni interrogating surveying and harassing the former Tamil fighters recently.

Gotabhaya's psy-ops team had ‘discovered’ through ‘surveying’ that the level of frustration prevailing among the former fighters was high, informed sources said.

This had made the SL military to monitor the ex LTTE members on a daily basis, the sources further said.

The SL government has also announced that Mahinda Rajapaksa would be ‘gifting’ bank loans at a function at Temple Trees.

On one hand around 2,000 former LTTE fighters have been invited to attend the ‘bank loan’ event at SL presidents residence in Colombo.

But, on the other hand, those who remain in Vanni with their families are being continuously harassed to register themselves.

Those who refuse to work for the occupying SL military are being indirectly threatened that they would have to face harassment until they opt to collaborate with the military.
