A group of the occupying Sri Lankan military officials, who have been visiting the families that have resettled in the vicinity of the recently discovered mass grave at Thirkkeatheesvaram in Mannaar have been harassing the families to give false witness that the locality of the mass grave was a graveyard belonging to a church situated in the area, residents say.

Tamil National Alliance (TNA) youth wing leader and a leading civil activist in Mannaar Sivakaran also confirmed the reports of alleged military harassment.

The families were all uprooted from the area in 1990 and resettled back at the area recently, Mr Sivakaran said adding that the residents have no knowledge of what went on inside the area which was maintained as a high security zone by the SL military.
