"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

Shadowy para military groups torture and execute Tamils

"Shadowy Tamil militant death squads are once again on the rise in Batticaloa. The Mohan group aligned to PLOTE has terrorised Batticaloa for several years and has been linked to former intelligence officer Richard Dias alias Captain Munas, implicated in the disappearance of 158 Tamils from the Vantharumoolai refugee camp in 1990. The Raziq group associated with EPRLF has recently surfaced. Observers believe EPRLF, which kept aloof from military activities for several years, has decided to throw in its lot after the fall of Jaffna and the apparent weakening of the LTTE. The Tamil militant cadres ostensibly provide translation service to the military and act as scouts and spotters during security operations. Both EPRLF and PLOTE deny that they have links with death squads. But reports from Batticaloa say these two groups are involved in detention, torture and execution of people suspected of links with the LTTE. Observers say that at least ten incidents of torture and execution in the last three months are known to human rights groups." (Sri Lanka Monitor, published by British Refugee Council, June 1996)
