Sri Lanka disappearance event to be held at UK Parliament

An event on disappearances in Sri Lanka is to be held at the British Parliament this week.

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is organizing the event at the British Parliament to highlight the plight of thousands of Tamils who have disappeared in the island.

The UN Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearance, following a visit to Sri Lanka in November 2015, stated that Sri Lanka has the second largest number of enforced disappearance cases before the Working Group. Sri Lanka has not provided any meaningful domestic or international remedies for the relatives and friends of the victims to know what happened to their loved ones.

There will be several speakers, including British Members of Parliament and other dignitaries, who will discuss the plight of the disappeared and what steps should be taken to bring Sri Lankan Security forces to face justice.

This discussion is taking place in light of the latest developments, when Commander of Sri Lankan Forces during the war Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka, who is also a Cabinet Minister, confirming that Sri Lankan Security Forces Committed War Crimes against Tamils during and after the war ended.

Field Marshall Fonseka’s confession to war Crimes committed by forces under his command came, when he summoned journalists to his office on September 1st and said that he has information about General Jayasuria committing war crimes and that he is ready to give evidence. “I know he committed Crimes and ready to testify before a proper investigation.” Fieled Marshal Fonseka also said that other officers also committed war crimes: “I have information regarding those who committed crimes,” he told journalists.

  1. Sri Lanka is no longer a colony of Britain. Sri Lanka does not discuss British matters, especially the atrocities committed by the British forces in Iraq. This discussion, no doubt, is initiated by the LTTE diaspora living in Britain and investing heavily in British business from the ill-gotten wealth taken from every Tamil who landed in the UK by dubious means conniving with the British politicians and abusing the legal loopholes.

  2. Disappearances in Sri Lanka will be held at the British Parliament soon, so this should include ‘Sinhalese and Muslim people disappeared’ due to Tamil Tiger Terrorist activities. Some other SL NGOs should display the photos and videos of brutal killings by LTTE such as mass killings of monks, border villagers as many bodies were unable to recognise; but no-one in the West have not seen the reality. Many of the Tamil people listed as missing, are actually organising these events hiding the identity. LTTE Terrorists who died in sea battles and guerrilla fights are also listed as missing. Many Westerners are aware of this but massive bribes in Swiss Banks make them to support Tamil organisations who are funding them. Sri Lanka paying the price for defeating the terrorism, otherwise there won’t be any of these.
