Suresh claims torture chamber existed in Vara’ni

Varani_01Former Tamil National Alliance Parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran claims a torture chamber existed in Vara’ni in Jaffna.

He made public photographs taken at the alleged torture chamber which shows blood stains on the walls.

Premachandran said that the torture chamber was in an army camp which was later shifted to another location following public protests as the camp included several private homes taken over by the army.

The former Parliamentarian said that he visited the camp as soon as the army shifted from the location and in one house he found a torture chamber.

He said the chamber had barbed wire on the roof and blood stains on the walls and he had photographed everything but was not in a position to make it public, till now.

Premachandran said that the UN Human Rights Council and the Government must ensure a proper investigation is conducted into the torture chambers operated by the military during and soon after the war.

A UN team which visited Sri Lanka recently had revealed details of another torture chamber operated by the Navy in Trincomalee.

Premachandran said that several torture chambers existed at several other locations as well, including in Mannar. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Hey foolish SURESH THE TAMIL PUNDIT! What about the THAUSANDS OF KILLING OF SRI LANKAN CIVILIANS BY THE BRUTAL-TAMIL TERRORISTS-LTTE PRIOR TO MAKING THESE TORTURE CHAMBERS???
    HEY BASTERED! YR TERRORIST LESDER PRABAKARANS KILLING OF SINHALESE CIVILIANS MADE THIS SITUATION FOR CAPTURED LTTE TERRORISTA!!! THATS THE TRUTH<SO PL KEEP YR FILTHY DIRTY MOUTH SHUT!!!

  2. Revealing this situation is to correct SL position of
    rejecting ALL accusations of wrong-doing right up to and at the UN, since the inception. As far as the I/C is
    concerned, this is sufficienrt evidence. The LTTE too may have had such places – but all cleaned and white-washed in preparation for the Southern Sinhala Tourist!

  3. Does he have photos of the torture chamber that was located behind the LTTE “Police station” in Killinochchi?! It is still there and the army that is stationed there will be glad to show it to anyone who wants to visit.

  4. So who did they learn it from, the US, Brits, Indians, French, Russia… all these civilized nations use torture for purposes of state security. The LTTE were expert at it. What is your intent in bringing out these claims now Premachandran? I think it is already a well known fact.

    • Yes, the Sri Lankans learned this from Praba the karan. He is the master of suicide bombers and that woman, who now lives on money from ordinary Tamils, in a luxury apartment somewhere in London gave these young men and WOMEN the suicide pill.

  5. These Opportunists want the division amongst the ethnic group. I wonder why the Tamil Tigers were Hell-bent to protect these low life Legislators. Once you have the parliamentary privileges, it is your responsibility to look after the whole country rather than the dead Tigers. Another Shameful act of Tamil Politician.
