President informed of mysterious killings

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 18 August 1998, 13:23 GMT]
Joseph Parajasingham MP (Tamil United Liberation Front Batticaloa District) has brought to the notice of Sri Lanka President Chandrika Kumaratunga, the increase in the number of mysterious killings in Batticaloa District which he says "points the finger at one of the armed groups working along with the law abiding forces in Batticaloa."

Referring to the murder of a couple in Satturukondan and a fisherman in Karuveppankerni last week, he said that no motive could be attributed these mysterious killings which were a cause of alarm among the constituents in his electorate.

He said these acts brought the Government into disrepute and were done in flagrant disregard to the efforts made by the President to eradicate the violation of human rights in the country especially the northeast.

In his letter Mr.Parajasingham told the President that only by bringing to book the perpetrators of these crimes, could the mysterious killings be prevented in the future.

The Batticaloa couple and fisherman were killed early this month by masked men. The victims were shot at point blank range after being forced out of their homes late at night.
