The whereabouts of over 12,000 people in the North who were either arrested, abducted or went missing during the war is still not known, the relatives of those missing people said today and urged the government to intervene.

Relatives of those missing from Vavuniya and Kilinochchi took to the streets in Vavuniya today saying although it has been one year since the end of the war they have yet to obtain information on the whereabouts of their missing loved ones.

They urged the government to intervene in the matter and find their loved ones. (Daily Mirror online)

    Yes the Government will attend to this and then only they will see the rest.

    Monday, 24 May 2010 02:53 PM

    Deyyiya how do you know that the grave yard is not that of the mass murder of 600 policeman by LTTE

    Monday, 24 May 2010 03:24 PM

    Dont Waste Time... They are victims of war!!! created by the Worst Criminal in our time VP Piribaharan

    Monday, 24 May 2010 03:25 PM

    Great Gossip... As if you have seen them ha????

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 04:37 AM

    These protest were not held when the Tamils were abducted by the LTTE & forced in to the LTTE, yes you will find mass graves with bodies of dead LTTE fighters, now these are the bodies that were left behind when heavy fighting ever took place. These bodied were buried as the ICRC or the LTTE never came forward to claim them or else there was no time to be dispatching dead LTTE caders. So it is obvious that there are missing persons. If these protestors have proof that they were arrested by the armed forces, they can move against the government. Sorry but it is the truth & sad too.

    They died of heart attacks/ committed suicide in police/army custody. Go on, say it. Or better still they disappeared themselves as a publicity stunt. I doubt we will get any clear answers EVER. There is so much rubbish going on in this country.

    Monday, 24 May 2010 03:38 PM

    KILLED BY SL ARMY BY INDIANS GUIDNANCE, DONT COME TO US, INDIAN SHOULD GO WAR CRIME FIRST,BECUASE OF THAT THEY DONOT WANT SARTHA ALIVE.

    Monday, 24 May 2010 03:57 PM

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 04:57 AM

    spark, If you don't know buddhism dont talk about it. In buddhism our pray doesn't count to some others karma, Pray for some good thing. KARMA ACTUALLY CAME ALONG AND THAT'S WHY PRABHAKARAN AND HIS GANG VANISHED FROM THE SL SOIL. THAT IS THEIR KARMA.

    Monday, 24 May 2010 05:28 PM

    This is why we need independent investigations.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 05:47 AM

    Yeah the dream of a seperate state will remain a dream for ever. The only grievance you have. First learn to live in harmony with other races!

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 05:48 AM

    Slowly remnent Tamil Tigers now are waking and using innocent Tamils again?. I am sure these terrorists are using Tamil civilains again here.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 05:49 AM

    So why do you condemn and still stay here? Please go to Norway.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 05:51 AM

    Yeah all arrests of terrorists are called "Disappearances" by the terrorists themselves.

    Monday, 24 May 2010 07:33 PM

    Where are they?

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 05:52 AM

    The ones who have migrated are also in the "disappeared" category.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 05:55 AM

    Absolutely. We were all wondering how the maniac Prabha escaped karma until May last year. But it was shown to us that Karma prevailed in May 2009.

    Monday, 24 May 2010 09:25 PM

    Just 'the tip of the iceberg'?

    Monday, 24 May 2010 10:33 PM

    "Uthuru Wasanthaya."

    Monday, 24 May 2010 11:38 PM

    Sri Lanka is one of the popular country where disappearances and extra killing have been happening and society has been keep quiet about this serious allegation regardless of those disappeared or killed Tamils or Sinhalese.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 12:52 AM

    Missing in Action !.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 06:58 AM

    When is that going to happen????????????????????

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 01:15 AM

    my condolences to all who have lost. Would you also like to know how many others in the south also lost their lives during the last 30 yrs. We need to move forward. if its information these people want it must be provided however sad it would be. not knowing if a relative is dead or not is terrible. Perhaps a government agency can be set up to help find all in boosa ect so that those who are thought to be lost can be traced. others in European countries, Australia should also be added to the list.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 01:17 AM

    new sri lanka....

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 07:06 AM

    Then find someother country tike Norway or UK, who will solve as the desire of Tamil Diaspora or otherwise learn to live harmony with other races.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 01:58 AM

    Is this the way to win peace? "Kill all those who oppose you"

    If the govt wanted to use this technique the war could have been ended 25 yrs ago. No matter how bad our previous leaders were, at least they were humans.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 01:59 AM

    Uthuru Wasanthaya just came after the bloody war to build the North. This report refers to the incidents happened before. So, don't show your awareness to others, pls.
    Clearly, LTTE dominated those areas referred and came under GOSL after 18/05/09. So, who should be responsible?
    Remember, GOSL carried out the largest & safest rescue mission in the world with 'zero' civilian casualties and if GOSL was not concered so much on the innocent Tamils, they could have just looked on the largest massacre in the world in May'09.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 02:03 AM

    if found by the SL forces when clearing landmines then it has to be a mass grave by the LTTE terrorists

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 02:41 AM

    This Wesak, let us meditate and hope Karma will have its way and teach all beings in this island that truth and natural justice will prevail.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 02:46 AM

    Most of them are waiting for the approval of their asylum applications in countries with generous welfare systems.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:07 AM

    If this happened to you then you will realize..................

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:14 AM

    WHAT A ABOUT MISSING IRAQIS DURING THE WAR? WHAT ABOUT MILLIONS OF INNOCENT VIETNAMESE CIVILIANS MISSED BOMBING BY AMERICA. ONLY AMERICA AND UK HAVE LICENCE TO KILL INNOCENT CIVILIANS IN THIS WORLD? NOBEE PERERA, DUBAI, UAE

    Monday, 24 May 2010 01:36 PM

    A danish team working with the army has just found a mass grave when checking for landmines..l am sure some of the missing must be buried here......The royal family might be constipated just hearing each of these stories. Run, Run king and clan run...take the millions of dollars you have stolen from innocent sri lankans and run...

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:33 AM

    Grand victory was over the death of the innocents too. No one can hide the facts of death as act of death related God and divine. Whoever who had done it had to pay for it one day.

    Monday, 24 May 2010 01:37 PM

    This is a set up By the LTTE dispora lobby in Norway

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:36 AM

    Very unfortunate, Govt. should make arrangements to find them out.

    Monday, 24 May 2010 01:46 PM

    What you got to say mr.Rambukwela?

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:37 AM

    They may have uncovered the mass grave of 700+ Sri Lankan policement who surrendered to the LTTE in 1992 and then who were killed by the LTTE.

    Monday, 24 May 2010 01:52 PM

    They were killed by the Army/Navy /Airforce/LTTE.
    K K Ramu.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:39 AM

    Well for this entire situation it is Prabha and the bloody LTTE that is responsible.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:41 AM

    You all have to ask it from LTTE. They are the people who forced them to their army. Now relative don't tell that and just say they are missing. THEY WERE MISSING FOR A LONG TIME. That time nobody to tell and nobody to listen. That's the issue. It's not hidden fact that lot of LTTE cardres were killed in the last battle. They might be among them.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:43 AM

    It's a known fact that thousands were killed both army and LTTE (NOT CIVILLIANS). like it or not, we have to burry them in mass scale. No individual graves. (No time or facilities available) So it's not a surprising thing to hear.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:44 AM

    some people will understand the real pain when it comes to them only

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 03:46 AM

    deyyiya, what do you think, what LTTE did for their dead members ???? Burried in individual graves after having relegious activities ???

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 04:03 AM

    about 60000 people are still missing in the south due to the supression of JVP insurrections in the 80s. commissions appointed but nothing happend. how these people will get justice?

    Monday, 24 May 2010 02:29 PM

    Tamils grievances will not be solved in this country.
