ATROCITIES FACED BY TAMILNADU FISHERMEN

AT THE HANDS OF SRI LANKAN NAVY
In the event of the Tamil fishermen being caught by the Sri Lankan Navy, the torturous acts and atrocities committed
on them by the Sri Lankan Navy cannot be described in words.

1. Undressing our Fishermen.
2. Firing at and mercilessly shooting down the Fishermen, even after they surrender by raising their arms in the air.
3. Forcing them to lie over Ice bars.
4. Forcing them to carry Ice bars on their heads.
5. Compelling them to lie knee down on Salt corns.
6. Forcing them to eat Masala Powder mixing it with Grease Oil.
7. Forcing them to intercourse with a dead Tirukai fish (Ray – Sting fish).
8. Compelling homosexuality, irrespective of whether the fishermen are father or son or brothers.
9. Spitting over their faces.
10. Compelling them to drink Urine.
11. Castigating the fishermen as Indian Bastards and coward Tamils.
12. Pushing the physically challenged fishermen into Sea.
13. Forcibly taking away the catched fishes.
14. Destroying nets worth several lakhs.
15. Forcibly snatching away gold rings, chains, cell phones and money owned by fishermen.
16. Threatening the fishermen with acid bottles.
17. Hitting and stamping the fishermen with boot legs.
18. Hitting hard with the Gun bud.
19. Drowning the fishermen in sea.
20. Arresting the fishermen and detaining them illegally in Sri Lankan Jails.
To spell out is shameful, but to suppress it is deceitful. These are some of the atrocities committed on our fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy. Retrieving Katchatheevu Island is the only solution to put an end to these atrocities.

TORTURE

Torture seeks to annihilate the victims personality and denies the inherent dignity of the human being
Torture is a crime under International law which means that it is binding on every member of the international community, regardless of whether a state has ratified international treaties in which torture is expressly prohibited. The systematic or wide spread practice of torture constitutes a crime against humanity
