SLA engaged in obliterating evidence of mass killings in Vanni

[TamilNet, Sunday, 13 June 2010, 05:11 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers are hastily destroying hundreds of human skeletal remains that lies in the weed overgrown bunkers where the Vanni civilians had crept into to save their lives when SLA moved into Vanni in its final offensives on Vanni, a representative of an International NGO who recently visited places not permitted for resettlement in Vanni told TamilNet. Meanwhile, a priest, an eyewitness to the massacre, recalled how the advancing SLA soldiers had thrown grenades into the bunkers and how SLA tanks had dumped them with earth even with people alive in them.

The NGO official who recently visited areas from Puthukkudiyiruppu to Puthu Maaththa’lan where the people of Vanni were driven into during the last phase of the war added that human skeletal remains are visible in the former bunkers as torrential rain had washed away the upper layers of earth.

He added that he saw SLA soldiers hastily trying to obliterate all such evidence of the thousands of Vanni civilians killed indiscriminately in the very bunkers they had sought safety to their lives.

The priest recalled how the advancing SLA troops into Mu’l’livaaikkaal on 18 and 19 May 2009 had fired rocket launchers and lobbed grenades into the bunkers where thousands of civilians with their families had desperately tried to stay alive.

The SLA soldiers, on orders from their superiors, are actively destroying whatever evidence of the massacre of Vanni that remains in the places where resettlement is yet to be permitted.
