Isaipriya ‘raped’ and killed by Sri Lankan Army
Chennai, November 1, 201
With political parties in Tamil Nadu already strongly protesting against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s participation in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Colombo on November 15, disturbing new images have emerged that prove that Tamil Tiger news broadcaster and singer Isaipriya alias Shoba was not killed in combat, but in cold blood.
A video taken by a Lankan soldier shows Priya lying in a muddy sea water ditch when Lankan forces find her. They treat her with dignity and cover her with a sheet of white cloth. They mistake her for LTTE chief Prabhakaran’s daughter. She says no.
Later on, the video, obtained by Channel 4, shows Lt. Col. Isaipriya, who was also a soldier in the rebel LTTE army, lying in a ditch with deep cuts on her face. The Channel 4 report says she was sexually assaulted and killed.
The Prime Ministers of Australia and Britain are under pressure to boycott the CHOGM meeting to put pressure on the Mahinda Rajapaksa regime for human rights violations.
In India, the government itself is split with ministers from Tamil Nadu, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram and Shipping Minister G.K. Vasan, asking the Prime Minister to boycott the meet. The Tamil Nadu Assembly has unanimously passed a resolution urging the Centre to boycott the meeting. DMK chief M. Karunanidhi has warned the Centre of consequences.
