Eighty per cent of the complaints of forced disappearance made to the Sri Lankan Presidential Commission of Disappearances blame the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), according to a well-placed source in the Presidential Secretariat.

Quoting members of the commission, the official told express that majority of the complaints from Tamils in the Northern Province pertained to children being abducted by the LTTE to fight its war against the Lankan forces.

However, Tamil media reporters who had covered the sittings of the disappearances panel in Kilinochchi and Jaffna reported an overwhelming majority of the complaints were against the Sri Lankan army and their Tamil auxiliaries.

At a meeting of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MPs and members of the Northern Provincial Council held in Jaffna on Friday, it has been announced that the Tamil National Alliance was not satisfied with the functioning of the panel.

A resolution passed by the meeting said, while the panel was sitting in Kilinochchi, a group of state agents were trying to persuade complainants to accept Death Certificates and close the case.(Indian Express)

    Nims Sunday, 02 March 2014 11:30 AM

    What is there to laugh mate. Do you mean to say that ONLY LTTE and the TNA are correct and all other are wrong.

    Nims Sunday, 02 March 2014 11:31 AM

    LTTE never kidnapped anyone in the 30 year history. Is that what you mean?

    Marawan Sunday, 02 March 2014 11:36 AM

    Anyone whose brain has disappeared will believe this story.

    Suq Madique Monday, 03 March 2014 01:04 PM

    Suq Madique Monday, 03 March 2014 01:05 PM

    Suq Madique Monday, 03 March 2014 01:05 PM

    Suq Madique Monday, 03 March 2014 01:06 PM

    No surprise that this committee setup by MR has come to this conclusion.

    Saskia Sunday, 02 March 2014 02:01 PM

    No no, an independent commission will find the truth but we as Srilankans never tell truths, this is our custom.
