The so-called Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) has urged UN to Protect what they called the Tamil Prisoners of War (POW) from Sinhalese prisoners.  EIN presswire website reported this quoting a letter sent by the “Prime Minister of TGTE” Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran to the UN Resident Coordinator for Sri Lanka Hanaa Singer, India, US and the Red Cross.  


EIN website further said:  “Press reports indicate that a number of Sinhalese prisoners have attempted to escape the prison in an effort to protect themselves from the spread of the Covid-19 contagion. TGTE recently received a message from relatives of Tamil prisoners of war being held in the prison without charge, that Sinhalese inmates are attempting to coerce them to join in their efforts. These Tamil POWs do not want to participate in this prison insurrection and as a result are under threat by Sinhalese prisoners.  


“Even though there are press reports that Tamil POWs have been moved to another prison, still there are concerns for their safety, given the history of massacres of Tamil POWs since 1983” said Mr. Rudrakumaran. “There is also grave concern on the part of the POW families that this unrest will be used as a pretext for the Sri Lankan government to instigate a massacre of Tamil POWs. This fear is based on Sri Lanka’s history of massacres of Tamil POWs since 1983.”
