The occupying Sri Lanka Army soldiers, coming from the so-called S-cave camp at Thikili-veddai in Batticaloa have been harassing former LTTE female members 6 years after they have been re-united with their families. When some of the women subjected to sexual harassment by the SLA soldiers, complained to rights activists and NGOs, the women were given death threat by the SL military. The Sri Lankan soldiers were also harassing the women to join the SL military.
The families complain that the SLA soldiers knocking at the doors during nights. The Sri Lankan Police is not acting upon the complaints made by the families.
Women rights groups have registered similar complaints from Vaakarai and Kathirave’li.
In a sudden move in September, the SL military intelligence operatives started to intimidate the former LTTE members to join the occupying Army.
