SL military collects details on ex-LTTE members in Jaffna, Vanni

[TamilNet, Thursday, 06 October 2011, 13:22 GMT]
Occupying Sri Lanka Army soldiers in Jaffna and Vanni have again started collecting details of former LTTE members. The SLA, using new forms from Colombo, is registering details of ex-Tiger members who had left the movement several years ago and of those who were detained and released by the SLA after the genocidal onslaught on Vanni in 2009. The SLA has been registering the details of former LTTE members since it seized the control of Jaffna peninsula from the Tigers in 1996. The SL military also registered the details of the LTTE members whom it took into its custody in 2009. The SLA is now collecting data on the whereabouts and details on what the former LTTE members are doing now. Even the identities of the dead ones are being verified, sources in Jaffna said.

Former LTTE-members say they are being kept under continuous surveillance and being harassed by the SLA and are being indirectly forced to vacate their soil.

Sources close to the SL military establishment in Vanni said the new registration aimed at identifying those who had managed to flee Vanni war without getting into the hands of the SLA.

In the meantime, four Tamil youths were recently arrested by the SLA at Cheddiku'lam internment centre. The SLA had accused that they didn't admit their past membership with the LTTE.
