Rape and murder of Tamil women by Sri Lankan forces aims at genocide: NZ Tamils

[TamilNet, Monday, 18 March 2013, 23:56 GMT]
In a letter addressed to Ms. Navaneetham Pillay, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, on Sunday, the Tamil Action Front of New Zealand (TAFNZ), citing established cases of the rape and murder of Tamil Women by the Sinhala military of Sri Lanka, said that there is a pattern of structural genocide being meticulously executed by Sri Lanka, irrespective of who is in power. What is new is the openly declared policy of the Rajapaksa regime to complete the genocide with tacit international support and by calculated false propaganda materialized through wine, women, diamonds and dollars, the TAFNZ letter signed by its coordinator, Mr. A. Theva Rajan, accused.

Besides listing some of the known cases, TAFNAZ, has cited the following statements of the World Organization Against Torture and the Asian Human Rights Commission:

“Sri Lankan soldiers have raped both women and young girls on a massive scale, and often with impunity, since reporting often leads to reprisals against the victims and their families.." : World Organization Against Torture

"The Sri Lankan security forces are using systematic rape and murder of Tamil women to subjugate the Tamil population... Impunity continues to reign as rape is used as a weapon of war in Sri Lanka." : Asian Human Rights Commission
