"Sri Lanka security forces have killed many children and women in a gruesome manner, and have sexually assaulted many women in NorthEast in the last several months," the memorandum pointed out.

President of the Women's association, Ms Pushparani Senthamilchelvan handed over a memorandum to Swiss UNICEF Executive Director Ms Alexandra Rosetti to be delivered to the Secretary General of UNICEF.

An information package in Deuth language detailing the SLA, and Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) atrocities was also distributed to concerned Swiss citizens who stopped to learn of the protest, organizers said.
