In the last three months alone, 39 Tamil people from the Jaffna and Kilinochchi districts have been arrested overnight under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, according to member of parliamentarian of TNA S. Sridharan.
He also questioned when justice would be served to the murdered boys.
He made the remarks while addressing a debate on the Juvenile (Training Schools) Amendment Bill and the Penal Code (Amendment) Bill in Parliament yesterday (21).
Even the students who studied with me back then are on this list. Especially on 18.05.2009 the children of ex-combatants were thus handed over to the army along with their mother and father. During this period I served as the Principal of Kilinochchi Maha Vidyalaya.
They were then educated in 6th and 7th grades. The son of LTTE leader V. Prabhakaran is also in his sixth year and was one of those killed in the army surrender.
Where are the children entrusted to the army?
What happened to them?
Justice for this has not been available on this soil for so long. These issues are the subject of discussion every time a resolution is tabled in Geneva and a report is submitted to Geneva, he added.
The full names and details of those handed over to the army have been revealed by Sridharan. Documented in the congregation.
