"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

Sri Lanka Army targets Tamil farmers in Batticaloa District & beheads one...

"K Thurairajasingham, MP for Batticaloa District, has condemned the beheading of Arunasalam Chandramohan, 21, by the security forces on 9 August 2000 at Sithandy. Following an LTTE attack in which two military personnel were wounded, soldiers are alleged to have shot dead Thiyagu Vincent, 29, and attacked Mr Chandramohan with knives before cutting his head off.

The two farmers had been working in a nearby field. Mr Chandramohan’s wife C Ambigavathy told a judge that she saw a soldier carrying the head in a plastic bag. The head and the body were produced separately at the inquest. Local MPs have urged President Chandrika to investigate the incident.

Reports say that soldiers from Welikande shot dead farmer Thiyagarasa Sinnarasa, 17, and abducted nine others in early August. Local people complain that the Special Task Force (STF) shot dead farmers S Vijayasundaram and S Nishanthan in their field at Valaikalai, 17 miles south of Batticaloa town on 16 August. Four days later, another farmer Kanthakutty Thavarasa died in Army shooting in his filed at Vantharumoolai, north of Batticaloa town...." (British Refugee Council, Sri Lanka Monitor, August 2000)
