TNA charges SLA-backed paramilitary for killings in Vavuniya

[TamilNet, Saturday, 19 May 2007, 11:50 GMT]
"Until Sri Lanka Army (SLA)-backed paramilitary Tamil groups are disarmed there is no salvation for the Tamil community in Sri Lanka. Therefore the SL President and his security establishment should come forward immediately to guarantee the security of Tamil people," said S.Vino Noharathalingam, Vanni district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian, in a statement describing the current volatile situation in Vanni district.

Mr Noharathalingam further said in his press statement:

Extortion, abduction and killings are being carried out in Vavuniya district daily by paramilitary groups working in collaboration with State armed forces, according to information and statements made regarding these violent incidents.

However, the culprits are roaming freely because the affected persons are reluctant to name those involved in the crime due to fear for their lives.

The SLA and Sri Lanka Police are not taking action to arrest these offenders stating that the affected have not come forward to name the culprits. This action provides a cover to the offenders and allow them to operate with impunity.

It is possible to make Vavuniya a peaceful zone once the paramilitary groups are disarmed, the statement said.
