"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

Tamil houses bulldozed - September 1997

"The bulldozing of a Wellawatte house (in Colombo) belonging to a (Tamil) suspect... has outraged Tamil party leaders who accused the police of criminal action and slammed the PA regime as a bulldozing government. Police and security forces on Thursday used bulldozers to dig up the garden of the suspect's house and said the portico of the house, windows and other fittings were damaged in the process. But others say it was similar to the notorious Israeli tactic of bulldozing houses of suspects. The strongest reaction came from TULF parliamentary group leader Joseph Pararajasingham who charged that the custodians of the law were taking the law into their hands while a government which promised democracy and human rights was turning a blind eye. He said such horrible bulldozing tactics had been used earlier also to demolish the houses of two other Tamil suspects at Kotahena and Bambalapitiya. ACTC leader Kumar Ponnambalam.. described the PA regime as a bulldozer government. He said several such acts of bulldozing had taken place in the north.
