SL military raped conscripted Tamil women after Rajapaksa meeting

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 25 November 2014, 09:07 GMT]
47 Eezham Tamil women from Mullaiththeevu, recently conscripted to the occupying SL military and put under the Civil Security Department (CSD), were taken to Mihintale on 22 Saturday when SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa was on a trip to the ‘sacred city’. After the president of genocidal Sri Lanka requested the Tamil women to engage in campaign supporting him, the SL soldiers were having a party. Some of the 47 Tamil women were raped by the Sinhala soldiers and the others were subjected to sexual harassment, one of the victims told TamilNet on Monday. The women were also sexually harassed in the bus on their way back to Mullaiththeevu.

When the affected women went to complain to the SL military at the CSD office in Vanni with their husbands, they were told not to protest such ‘routine practices’. The SL police has also declined to register their complaints on sexual harassment, a victim told TamilNet.

Most of the recent ‘recruits’ to the SL military in Vanni are from poverty-stricken families. Some of them have been forced to join the occupying military as their husbands or brothers were in danger because of their former association with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

More than 10,000 Tamil men and women, most of them associated with the LTTE are exploited by the occupying SL military at the agricultural farms in Vanni.

The CSD personnel were deployed for pro-UPFA election propaganda during the NPC and civic elections in the recent past.

At Vaddak-kachchi in Ki'linochchi division, Tamil women were being badly treated by the SL military. There have been reports of Tamil women committing suicide in the farms. A section of them have also been transformed into sexual workers by the occupying SL military.

The 47-member group and their families are at shock following the episode at Mihintale.
