Genocidal Sri Lanka imposes forcible military training for CSD pre-school teachers

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 10 April 2018, 18:19 GMT]
The occupying military of genocidal Sri Lanka has instructed enslaved Tamil women teachers in the pre-schools operated by its Civil Security Division (CSD) in Ki'linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts. The pre-school teachers were earlier forced to undergo three-day training sessions. The SL military has now instructed a section of these teachers to take part in 21-days of a full-fledged military training programme, named as ‘leadership training’. The military training is conducted at SL military training centres in Diyattalawa and at Panagoda in the South. The training programme also aims at a brainwashing programme targeting the younger generation of enslaved children of CSD parents, employed at SL military-operated farms in Vanni.

The entire programme of CSD is psychological enslavement with good payment, a pre-school teacher from Ki'linochchi told TamilNet on condition of anonymity.

Many of these ‘selected’ teachers have children and find it extremely difficult to be away from their families for 21 days. At the same time, they find it also difficult to refuse as they risk losing their jobs. The pre-school teachers are on a military payroll since the days of former SL Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

The Northern Provincial Council has repeatedly been demanding the Colombo government to hand over the military-operated pre-schools to its Education Ministry.

In a recent interview to TamilNet, NPC Education Minister K. Sarwesvaran characterised the operation of SL military-run pre-schools as a form of child soldiering.

There are 294 military-run pre-schools in Vanni with 6,020 children and 553 teachers.

Most of these teachers have earlier undergone so-called military rehabilitation as the SL military regarded them as ex-LTTE combatants.
