SLA systematically terrorises female detainees

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 2 March 2010 22:07 No Comment]

Torture of female detainees in special camps of the Sri Lankan Army in Vavuniyaa continues to the extent of making many of the detainees insane, reports reaching from Vavuniyaa said. The torture is mainly carried out by female soldiers of the SLA, according to information provided by reliable civil society sources, which claim that they have hard evidence to prove it if there is any credible international investigation.

Meanwhile, a large number of female detainees are recently moved to an isolated zone within Cheddiuku’lam internment area with severe restrictions for even relatives to see them.

They are allowed to keep only two sets of cloths to change and are continuously intimidated that they would be sent to the dreaded Boosa camp in Galle in southern Sri Lanka, sources in Vavuniyaa said.

Those who are transferred to Boosa are kept in pigeonholes and have become physically emaciated within a short span of time, eyewitnesses told TamilNet.

As inter-marriages among former LTTE members was a common phenomenon, the isolation and torture of female detainees is a classic demonstration of SLA terrorism in getting information and in subjugating the ones who fled the island.
