SL military threatens ex-LTTE members in Paduvaan-karai, Vaakarai in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 14 May 2014, 22:19 GMT]
The occupying military of genocidal Sri Lanka has stepped up cordon and search operations targeting former LTTE members at various parts of Batticaloa district throughout the last 5 days. As Mu’l’livaaykkaal Remembrance is approaching on 17 and 18 May, the SL military soldiers, accompanied by military intelligence operatives summoned former LTTE members to the nearby camps and warned that they would be held personally responsible for any future forms of struggle and threatened them to fill in the forms to enlist for subordinate ‘jobs’ with the SL military. Following the cordon and search operations staged by the SL military, paramilitary operatives have been visiting the houses threatening the ex-LTTE members to join the SL military. The cordon, search operations and the follow-up harassments have been reported in Vaakarai and Paduvaankarai regions of the district.

The villages of Kudumpi-malai, Poolaak-kaadu, Koozhaavadi, Thikiliveddai, Pe’ndukal-cheanai in Koa’ralaip-pattu South and Kathirave’li, Vaakarai, Paal-cheanai, Vammi-veddavaan, Panichchang-keani and Vaakarai Central in Koa’ralaip-pattu North have been subjected to cordon and search operations.

In Koa’ralaip-patu South, SL soldiers accompanied by military intelligence operatives, distributed forms in Sinhala language and collected details of every member of the families having a former LTTE cadre. Details such as where the family members work and their travel routes were also registered.

In Vaakarai region, only 26 ex-LTTE members were present at Panichchang-kea’ni SLA camp while the SL military had expected at least 250 of them to be present after their house-to-house instructions during the cordon and search operations.

During the cordon and search operations, the SL soldiers first ‘arrest’ the former LTTE members and interrogate them repeatedly posing same questions.

When rural society leaders questioned the SL military officers on the purpose of registering details targeting selected families, the SL military officers have said they were collecting details in order to ‘offer’ jobs to them.
