Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) today announced that a list of Sri Lanka war criminals and perpetrators of Genocide for committing mass killing of Tamils and raping Tamil women will be released.

The list of Sri Lankan war criminals and perpetrators of Genocide will likely to include the President of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapakse, President’s brother and Defense Secretary Gothabaya Rajapakse, senior security force officers and others who were responsible for the mass killing of Tamils and raping Tamil women.

Recently UN Human Rights Council passed a Resolution to establish an international war crimes investigation for the mass killing of Tamils and sexually assaulting Tamil women by the Sri Lankan Security forces.

Sri Lankan Government vehemently opposed this international war crimes investigation and opposed it with the help of China and Pakistan.

Tamils including the main Tamil political party Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and several diaspora campaigned in support of this Resolution.

Angered by the recent UN Human Rights Council Resolution authorizing International War Crimes investigation for Sri Lanka’s mass killings of Tamils, Sri Lankan government put several Tamil groups from around the world in its Terrorist list (http://world.einnews.com/pr_news/198021042/sri-lanka-retaliates-against-un-call-for-war-crimes-investigation-list-tamil-groups-as-terrorists ).

TGTE also released a Booklet titled “SRI LANKA: REMEDIAL JUSTICE FOR TAMILS - JUSTICE DELAYED; JUSTICE DENIED - INT'L INVESTIGATION NOW” (http://world.einnews.com/pr_news/193710947/sri-lanka-remedial-justice-for-tamils-justice-delayed-justice-denied-int-l-investigation-now-tgte-s-booklet).

BACKGROUND:

Tamils have faced repeated mass killings since 1958 and that the killings in 2009 prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a Panel of Experts to report on the scale of killings.

According to this UN report tens of thousands of Tamil civilians were killed in five months due to deliberate and intense shelling and bombing of areas designated by the government as "no-fire zones", where Tamil civilians had assembled for safety.

According UN Internal Review Report on Sri Lanka over 70,000 Tamils were killed in five months.

The Sri Lankan Government also restricted food and medicine for Tamils, resulting in large numbers of people dying from starvation and many of the injured bleeding to death.

According to the UN Panel, the killings and other abuses that took place amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. Independent experts believe that there are elements of these abuses that constitute an act of genocide.

UN Human Rights Council in March 2014 established an international war crimes investigation for these killings.

Members of the Sri Lankan security forces are almost exclusively from the Sinhalese community and the victims are all from the Tamil community.

Tamils overwhelmingly voted in an election in 1977 to establish an independent and sovereign country Tamil Eelam. This election was held by the Sri Lankan Government.
