Govt.: LTTE Executed Soldiers

The government has today (8) said that the LTTE terrorists had executed security forces personnel during the final stages of the war last year.

Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne has told parliament that several hardcore LTTE cadres who were arrested from the Vavuniya welfare camps had revealed that 60 soldiers who were in LTTE custody were executed by them during the finals stages of the war.

Jayaratne has made this statement during the committee stage debate on the Defence Ministry today.

The Tigers had shot the soldiers and then burnt their bodies, the Prime Minister has said.

Jayaratne has added that the mass graves of the soldiers that have been found proved that the LTTE executed prisoners of war.

    Prime minister, Do you want to make a comment on execution of 40,000 civilians by Sri Lankan forces? Who should be accounted for all reported war crime? Isn’t your leader Mahindha and his brother responsible for all these war crimes?
