"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

200 TAMILS CIVILIANS KILLED IN AIR
AND NAVY ATTACKS IN 1993 ALONE

Government must take responsibility for the actions of their agents and deny them immunity…

''... Sri Lankan military authorities say the (Kilali ferry) crossing is illegal and travellers will be shot on sight. Over 200 have been killed in air and navy attacks this year. In one attack in January which killed 50, a man feigned death while sailors boarded boats mutilating dead bodies to steal jewellery. Another 17 people drowned in August when their boat capsized during shelling. Defence sources in Colombo usually describe the attacks as clashes with the LTTE.''

Sri Lankan Presidential Adviser Bradman Weerakoon in Geneva recently for an International Conference on the Protection of War Victims eloquently insisted that governments must take responsibility for the actions of their agents and deny them immunity. He said nothing however about Kilali.'' -(British Refugee Council Publication, Sri Lanka Monitor, September 1993)
