A Tamil woman from Matale in the Central Province was knifed to death allegedly by a ‘Civil Security Division’ paramilitary operative of the Sri Lankan military near Punnai-neeraavi in Ki’linochchi a few days ago. The SL police detained the paramilitary operative after securing the murder weapon from the CSD operative on Wednesday. The identity of the CSD operative has not been revealed. The slain woman, a pregnant, had gone seeking the paramilitary operative who had an affair with the woman, legal sources in Ki’linochchi said.
At the end of the genocidal war in 2009, the international system and the international community of establishments allowed the genocidal military of Sri Lanka to capture an undisclosed number of LTTE members and associates. Conservative estimations put the number to around 20,000.
Among them, apart from the killed, disabled and released cum harassed, around 3000 able-bodied members were isolated by the Sinhala military to work as farm labourers in the farms run by the military.
Around 2,200 former female members of the LTTE and 800 former male members were employed in the farms as labourers.
There have been widespread reports of sexual exploitation of Tamil women in these farms.
Around 300 of the males have been brainwashed to become paramilitary operatives and serve the Sri Lankan military in carrying out its programme of structural genocide against Eezham Tamils while Sinhala journalists in Colombo were describing the CSD programme as a positive gesture by the Sri Lankan establishment.
The SL military designed the CSD programme as a ‘counter-insurgency’ measure victimising and isolating the former LTTE members from their society.
Western funded NGOs, which claim that their aim is to promote human rights in former war zones, have also failed to highlight the plight of the CSD victims, giving time and space to Colombo to complete its genocidal project.
