"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."

- Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

INDICTMENT AGAINST SRI LANKA

Sri Lanka's Genocidal War - '95 to '01

Sinhala Army sacks Sunny village in Mannar...

"After the LTTE killed a soldier on 19 July, soldiers ran amok in Sunny Village on Mannar Island, shooting and attacking civilians. Fourteen people were seriously injured. The soldiers also burned six houses and two shops.

Vanni MP S Adaikalanathan says several people who were in the houses when they were set on fire, managed to escape. Four soldiers, including an officer have been arrested. Army Brigadier Kulatunge ordered payment of Rs 10,000 compensation for each house burned...

Since the closure of the Vanni routes following Army operation Rana Gosha, over 1,700 people have arrived in Pallimunai on Mannar Island by boats from Vidataltivu. The refugees are being sent to the Pesalai refugee camp, after registration. Government officers in Mannar say that support for refugees will become extremely difficult if people continue to arrive on the island." (British Refugee Council publication Sri Lanka Monitor, July 1999)
