SL Intelligence harasses ex LTTE members, warns against contact with UN rapporteurs

[TamilNet, Saturday, 09 December 2017, 22:38 GMT]
Three different intelligence agencies of occupying Colombo are simultaneously harassing former LTTE members in Vanni on contacts they were having or expected to have in the nearest future with thematic special procedure mandate holders of the United Nations Human Rights Council, ex-LTTE members who have been grilled by the SL intelligence agencies in Ki'linochchi told TamilNet this week. The notorious ‘Terrorist Investigation Division’ (TID) investigators, SL State Intelligence Service (SIS) which is the official intelligence agency of the SL State and the intelligence wing of the occupying SL military have been contacting the ex-LTTE members in recent days inviting them for ‘conversations’. The intelligence officers have issued veiled threats claiming that they were aware of those getting in touch with the UN Human Rights system.

The intelligence wing interrogators were claiming that they had inside-information on who were contacting the former LTTE members. The latest harassment comes right before a scheduled visit by a UN team of special mandate holders.

The former LTTE members would be risking fresh cases based on ‘new’ information on their past ‘crimes’ if they entertained the UN visitors. They were told not to reveal any detail of torture and other forms of harassments.

In the meantime, there have been increased reports of mysterious deaths occurring among the former LTTE members, who have been released from prolonged incarceration, detention and ‘military rehabilitation’.

Reports of fatal diseases among the former LTTE members have also caused concerns of mysterious injections, which they had received during their incarceration.

A group of Tamil lawyers who are involved in filing Habeas Corpus applications on behalf of enforced disappeared have also received indirect threats from the intelligence establishment of the SL State.
