The National University Teachers’ Association (NUTA) is to publicly quash the assertion by a section of the international community and some other organisations that 40,000 civilians were killed during the final stages of the war.

NUTA secretary Dr. Channa Jayasumana, who is a lecturer at the Rajarata University, told Daily Mirror yesterday that this was a falsehood and that he, along with other university academics attached to his organisation, would prove it with facts and figures.

“This is a false story created by those sympathising with the cause of the LTTE. We can academically prove that 40,000 civilians were not killed. It is an allegation cooked up by a section with vested interests,” he said.

He said NUTA would also campaign against the government's move to enact the Office of Missing Persons Bill in Parliament.

“We will create greater awareness among people,” he said.(Kelum Bandara)

    War is history, but producing future generations are in your hand, so without gaining unwanted mileage on the history, pls confine yourself to churn out individuals fit for the society.

    If you can prove 40,000 is a wrong figure, come up with the correct figure!

    The myth must be exploded. But your campaign might give new life to Channel 4

    "also campaign against the government's...." this proves to whom they are appearing for. Why wait so long to say this, publish your report of the investigation carried out by to ascertain the actual figures.It reminds the sinhala proverb " Haana heeya paanaa andaharen dane."

    Mr. Jayasumana, you cooked up the Kidney issue in Rajarata first. Now you are trying to intervene into the issue of disappearances in Sri Lanka. Academics should not step beyond their expertise. You are not an expert on any of the issues related to disappearances. Consult your academic colleagues in forensic field first before coming out with figures.

    He has proved that one can get a PhD from Rajarata University in record time without bothering to submit a thesis. So he can prove anything.

    was he running the war at that time?
