Threatened female activist suffers injuries in suspicious ‘accident’ in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Sunday, 04 August 2019, 23:47 GMT]
A leading activist of missing persons in Batticaloa district, Mrs Amalanayaki Amalraj, was struck by a suspicious motorbike rider around 4:30 PM on Sunday. Mrs Amalraj, seated back on a motorcycle which her daughter was riding, spotted a speeding motorbike with three persons passing them, then slowing down. As her daughter reduced the speed, the other speeding bike hit them from behind and rapidly vanished away. A group of villagers who witnessed the accident chased the speeding motorcycle and managed to catch the driver. The two others seated in the motorbike have managed to escape. The rider was identified as a close relative of one of the most dreaded Tamil paramilitary operative of the SL military in the past. Mrs Amalraj was also harassed by the SL Police when she was on her way to meet the UN Special Rapporteur on Rights to Freedom of Peaceful Assembly and Association last month.

The mother suffered an internal leg injury while the daughter was injured in her hand. The two were admitted to Batticaloa Teaching Hospital.

The accident has taken place at Nediya-madu in Karadiyan-aa'ru in Batticaloa.

The detained person is a close relative of the late paramilitary operative, who was known as ‘PLOT Mohan’.

The SL Police was reluctant to establish the identity of the two persons, who had escaped after the ‘accident’.

Mrs Amalraj has been at the forefront in mobilising the families of the persons subjected to enforced disappearances at the hands of the SL military in the district.

Amalanayaki has been very vocal in her critique of the deceptive SL State mechanisms and the Colombo-centric attitude of the NGOs which back the so-called ‘Office on Missing Persons’ (OMP).

The mechanism intends to dilute the struggle, waged by the mothers and the wives of the missing persons, reported missing at the hands of the SL military.

The OMP is offering financial ‘reparations’ instead of genuinely assisting the families in seeking the truth, the families accuse.

The missing ones were those whom the SL military operatives abducted during the times of war and those the families had handed over to the SL military at the end of the genocidal onslaught in Vanni in 2009.
