Genocidal military deceives Tamil students in Jaffna, Vanni

[TamilNet, Saturday, 12 April 2014, 13:47 GMT]
The occupying Sri Lankan military is waging a targeted campaign in Jaffna and Vanni to deceive and recruit Tamil youth between 18 and 22 years to substandard assignments within the genocidal military. The SL military has been collecting the lists of students who didn’t succeed in their GCE (O/L) exams and is engaged in a targeted campaign, promising driver and data-entry jobs for 30,000 rupees a month. At some places Tamil schoolteachers are being forced to ‘encourage’ the students to enlist themselves in the military. The SL military officers coming from Palaali military base have been allowed into schools in uniform to conduct propaganda meetings.

The Director of Jaffna Technical College situated at Kokkuvil, Mr Yogarajan, who has been a supporter of SL President Rajapaksa, has allowed the occupying SL military officers to visit the college during the classes and provide recruitment lectures to students. He is also compelling some students to join Colombo’s genocidal military.

The students’ union representatives at the Technical College have raised their voice against Mr Yogarajan, who lost in the recent elections representing the UPFA.

The village (GS) officers are also under pressure from the SL military to identify and enlist Tamil students.

Earlier, the SL military targeted Tamil women twice. The few enlisted Tamil women were taken on parade, provided military training against their will, kept in closed locations and allegedly exploited by the SL military.

The so-called Terrorist Investigation Division operatives targeted those who voiced against the ill treatment of Tamil women.

In the last drive only 45 Tamil women were enlisted in the false ‘reconciliation’ show.

Now, the SL military is looking for both boys and girls making them “dropouts” from the schools and colleges, a student representative from Jaffna Technical College told TamilNet Saturday.
