Human Right watch which will be submitting its Report to UN on Monday,disclosed that The Tamil Women were raped by The Sri Lanka Security forces,’to teach them a lesson”
There seems to be no end to the atrocities being perpetrated by The Sri Lanka Government.
The UN must ensure that this report is not also NFAd(No Further Action)
The report is said to have contained a list of 75 cases of rape and sexual assault. These incidents happened all across Sri Lanka, from 2006 to 2012.
The majority of the cases are said to have happened during the armed conflict (with LTTE) that ended in may 2009.
The conflict ended almost three years ago, but the incidents of sexual violence continues till this day, the report quoted.
The revelations were confirmed by HRW Asia Director Brad Adams.
“The Sri Lankan security forces have committed untold numbers of rapes of Tamil men and women in custody. These are not just wartime atrocities but continue to the present, putting every Tamil man/woman arrested for suspected LTTE involvement at serious risk”, he was quoted in a news report published in national daily the Hindu.
Adams further reiterated the necessity of an international investigation into the alleged crimes.
Innumerable accounts of gross atrocities have emerged since the conflict ended.
Sri Lankan security forces are accused of blackmailing and sexually harassing Tamil men and women to extract information from them related to LTTE.
One account of 31-year-old women describes how she was blackmailed by the forces in revealing her husband’s details.
She was mercilessly beaten by a sand-filled-pipe and raped.
Another account of 23-year-old women was abducted and questioned for her alleged links with LTTE.
She was raped for three consecutive days and forced to perform sexual acts with number of men. In the end, she was asked to sign a piece of paper where she confessed her link with the LTTE.
Even men were not spared from the sexual violence.
Graphic accounts of extreme sexual violence gave a glimpse of the atrocities committed by the Sri Lankan security forces to crush the rebellion against its government.
The cold blooded killing of Prabhakaran’s 12-year-old son published in Britain daily – The Independent – has raised questions over Sri Lanka’s armed forces conduct during the final stages of the operation against Tamil Tiger rebels.
According to the report in the daily, the series of photographs taken a few hours apart and on the same camera, show Balachandran Prabhakaran, son of Villupillai Prabhakaran, sitting in a bunker, alive and unharmed, apparently in the custody of Sri Lankan troops. Villupillai Prabhakarn led the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). Another photo shows the boy’s body lying on the ground, his chest pierced by bullets.
