Torture And Sexual Abuse In Sri Lanka Four Years After War – Frances Harrison’s BBC Documentary

A special BBC documentary telecast last night interviews several survivors of alleged rape and torture of ex-LTTE cadres and Tamil civilians four years after the end of the war.

Frances Harrison

The investigative report by former BBC correspondent in Colombo Frances Harrison, the author of Still Counting the Dead, a book about civilian casualties in the final phase of the war in Sri Lanka’s north, tells the story of sexual abuse, torture and rape of at least 12 Tamil Sri Lankans in the last two years.

Some victims were tortured in rehabilitation programmes run by Government authorities and have documentation from the Sri Lankan government to prove they were enrolled in the programmes. Independent medical reports have found these persons were tortured, Harrison says.

One man who was forcibly recruited by the LTTE in the last six months of the war, said his testicles would be put into a drawer and then the drawer would be slammed shut. The victim claimed he had been forced to have oral sex with his torturers. The victim was at the Government”s official rehabilitation programme for ex-rebels.

A Tamil woman also recounts being abducted and taken five hours away in a van and raped repeatedly by persons in army uniform.

Many of the incidents have been reported from this year. Most victims have now sought asylum in the UK.

    I believe this report to be credible.

    Horrfiic torture is ongoing in Sri Lanka as we speak. And are conducted by Police & Military. Widespread in all communites & political factions of Sri Lanka.

    As long as we are not personally victimised by this most brutal crime, we tend to justify this pratice. That is the sad truth.

    PS: However, Canada’s lone statement of dissent is nothing, but BS by Harper. Canada is accomodating evil in Israel intensively. They made a political decision to do the opposite in Sri Lanka. To accomodate the very loud LTTE lobby in Toronto.

      Ben,

      We are talking about what happening in the soil of mother Sri Lanka. You are trying to justify by putting your fingers on others. It is happened to your brothers and sisters in front of you by your military. If that happens to your own sister, will you say to your sister that it has happened to Somawathy, so it is OK. It is you who endorsed this regime and its crimes against humanity.

        Ajith,

        I do not endorse the current, corrupt, family run dictatorship in Sri Lanka.

        Nor will I ever justify torture, abductions or extra-judicial killings by Police or Militray. No matter what.

        Yes, as a Sri Lankan I am ashamed by what transpires in this BBC report.

          What you show in the BBC is not the first rape or torture happened to Tamils. It is not only about the current regime only. There is a long history since Independence that tells the true story behind the violent terror culture. When Sinhala racist thugs and criminals burnt innocent children and pregnant ladies in front of Sinhala military in the Colombo street and your government and people endorsed those crimes, it is the one that provoked young Tamil youths including Pirabhaharan to take up arms against your military. The continued torture, rapes discrimination and the failure of the Governments and racist policies took a different turn and it came a violent war. No one denies or justify LTTE violent against innocent civilians. LTTE was considered as a terrorist group because it used suicide bombing, child soldiers, torture, killing of politicians and civilians but no one accused them using rape or food and medicine as a weapon against civilians. They never bombed hospitals or schools. We are not justifying their terror but the root cause lies with Sinhalese. Do you understand the root causes and why the country was in blood since Independence. Who started the flooding of Colombo streets in blood in 1958. Don’t try to escape from the truth. Tell the truth to your people what happened to innocent civilians in Mulliwaygal and what happened to those surrendered people? What happened to those innocent civilians? Where are they? They may be terrorists? But they are the children of this nation? They didn’t sell the nation to any foreigners. Tell the truth? Don’t hide under LTTE mantra to justify the terror of your side?

BUT I MUST ALSO SAY THAT A GOODLY PORTION OF BEN’S COMMENTS DOES HOLD WATER.ONE MUST BE TOTALLY OBJECTIVE BEFORE RUNNING THE RED PEN ACROSS COPY. WHICH,I SUPPOSE, IS WHY CT’S MODERATORS FEEL, AND RIGHTLY SO I THINK, TO PUBLISH CERTAIN NEGATIVES AND LEAVE IT OPEN FOR DEBATE AND DISCUSSION. AFTER ALL, THIS IS AN OPEN FORUM. IT CAN OF COURSE BE ANNOYING WHEN OBVIOUSLY INTELLIGENT COMMENTATORS DEEM IT RIGHT TO INTENTIONALLY SCREW UP THE TRUTH AND DRESS UP BLACK IN WHITE AND PRESENT IT TO THE READER WITH THAT VULGAR TONGUE-IN-CHEEK APPROACH.

          “I do not endorse the current, corrupt, family run dictatorship in Sri Lanka.”

          You do endorse the previous regimes, don’t you?

          “Nor will I ever justify torture, abductions or extra-judicial killings by Police or Militray. No matter what.”

          However you are happy to enact several Mulivaikkals for innocent Tamils and Muslims.

          “Yes, as a Sri Lankan I am ashamed by what transpires in this BBC report.”

          But you aren’t ashamed of by what had happened in the past 65 years in the name of Sinhala/Buddhism.

          And you will not support an independent investigation into all war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated since 5th April 1971.

        I do really feel sorry for you; you and your cocooned life! Do you know how many have bought out their freedom? One can do anything with a right price in Sri Lanka. You really need some serious growing up to do. It is a pity that the set of blinkers that you have permanently fixed on your head is nurturing your bigoted ideas. You will soon start to lose your mind unless that set of blinkers are removed.

Let us hear from the victim or his Mentor Francis Harrison , how he actually escaped to the UK evading immigration in SL .Your guessing is of no relevance as to how he came to his comfort Zone in the UK . The problem with SL is that they are ever ready with lots of theories to substantiate their crazy ideas.

              Actually he made it to Trichy in an Indian fishing boat.I’ve done the trip myself a few times for obvious reasons. But don’t think it can be stopped. It’s foolproof and hellishly ingenious. That’ why the Indian fishing boats come so close to shore. And hey, how can a stupid question from a woman passed her prime be ingenious ? shame on you Native, that’s a village boy’s way of sidling up to a female geek.

            How to escape to safe zone from militaty custody? The paramilitaries and Muslim agents arrange the handover of the particular “escapee” to a relative. They also arrange safe transport and passage through the passport check in the airport. How they get into the plane is not known. But a LARGE sum of money is paid by “escapee”‘s relatives to all the people involved in the deal.

        These are just a tiniest minority that has the chance to escape the country after the war. I met two tamil young men near Zurich, Switzerland a year or so ago. I just spoke to them to get to know more about them. But they denied telling me the truth about them, getting that I am Sinhalese. From what I understood, one of them failed to even speak due to the healed injuries. And many that have lived up similar brutal acts by Police and Army men are easily found in SL. Not only among tamils, some times ago, I happened to read this kind of inhuman acts that the police in SL are used to practise against any poor crime doers. Be them sinhalese, tamils or others, that have been the culture in SL. I have no doubt, these buggers have done it more with poor tamils as seen in the video.

        Sarojini:

        Do you know what a medical report is? Or have you even seen one? Actually, it is simple to resolve this issue – conduct an independent international investigation (III) where both parties can present their evidence. Instead of sticking your ostrich head deeply into the sand, why not you advise the regime to prove through an III that these claims are false and it is clean. We can then resolve this matter. Only a regime that has something to hide will act like a slime ball.

        For whatever crimes that may be stacked up against Prabhakaran, the Sinhalese are lucky that their adversary was Prabhakaran and he strictly did not allow rapes of Sinhala women unlike the Sinhala regime which has now become a rapist regime. Aren’t you lucky then that Prabhakaran was the adversary?

          Jansee , As Gothabya Rajapakse has rightly said . “Produce evidence or Shut UP ” , Instead of saying 17 of my family members have disappeared or 50 of my family members have been killed . Provide names addresses where the killings took place for a proper investigation to be carried out , The do gooder Macrae of channel 4 fame was requested to provide the evidence which he has not responded so far . The same applies to Francis Harrison .
          without TAKING PART IN THE NUMBER GAME of killing fields , let us ask where are these people buried , How come channel4 has escaped the finding of graves with their super sophisticated camera Phones. People should have the intelligence to analyse facts, sadly this has been lacking in these human rights activits and so called journalists , The game of the parrots then begins who repeat these without batting an eyelid .

      These practices are not new for Sri Lanka. My classmate in the early 1970’s (name withheld) went through the very degrading torture experience. Another victim who is a witness to Anita Annalingam rape and murder by the army too was put through degrading torture process. He is in London now. The photographic evidence of his injuries and having seen the scares in his body, speaks of the pain and suffering inflicted on him. I came across a young lady in London who had been repeatedly raped by the army.

      Sri Lanka has not changed and these serious violations are knowledge to the successive political leaderships. Did they bring in laws and mechanisms to prevent such violence and provide mandatory punishment to the violators through strenuous process for such a long time?

      Even the Inspector Bastiampillai was killed by the Tamil militants in the 1970’s over his violent behaviour including rapes.

      Having listened to the video, I wish the very same army men would harm each of Rajapske to the very same manner that Siva and Ravi are making clear about the harm made to them. These, one cant bring in words.

      If Army men have perpetrated those crimes in the post war episodes, Rajapkshes must be pushed for international war crimes.

      Unfortunately, we are on a world the powerful nations pay not adequate attention towards the poor nation^s crimes. That is why except Canada all other leaders allow Rajapskse go on harming own folks. Allowing CHOGM to hold in the Island means – welcoming the criminals awarding them to lead CW for the next two years.

    Uncivilized Sri Lankan Army solely representing Sinhalese. This ethnic group has unique sexual weaknesses. I recommend to explore such weaknesses through an anthropological study. I have personal experiences on similar issues throughout three decades war and have hundreds of evidences on how badly raped teen aged Tamil women and executed them by uncivilized ethnic army. Many of these incidents are not been revealed due to the fear of abduction and killing.

      I think it is culture of those armed men.
      Even cadet teams of the schools were abusing their juniors in hostels.
      In my days, 4 decades in SL, those who did sports were not recognized as decent ones. Specially, cricketers did not earn respect. It is just some among them abuse the other and lanken law authorities stay deaf as seen today everywhere.

      They dont take all these serious. Discipline should be taught to everyone from the kindergarten on. So long the leaders would not focus on the matter wholeheartedly, nothing would change in the system.

      Army or police did not earn respect int eh country at that time. But today, posting former army men (that have abused their colleagues and the youth) as diplomats .. they change the image of the country from MrS B most respected status … very low level dramatically. Latter is the reason today s srilanka has been a murderous state to the west.

        Actually sinhala buddhists are clearly more open and self critical. That is exactly why (sometimes wrongly) they criticise this gov. That is why we have newspapers like Ravaya. Most of the NGOs in SL have Sinhalese who are extremely critical of gov.

        Can we tell the same about Tamils and LTTE? which Tamil, tell me a single tamil who criticised against the brutalities of the LTTE? LTTE used to massacre sinhala civilians in North and border villages and subsequently in suicide boms. Tell me a SINGLE tamil who criticised LTTE? Point me a single tamil media that is critical of LTTE like that of Ravaya?

          Sach:

          Which planet are you from and how long have you been following Sri Lankan politics?? The number of Tamils who criticized the LTTE is equal to the number of Tamils murdered by the LTTE. That is quite a lot, actually. Even in CT there are many Tamil authors who do not support the objectives or methods of the LTTE. They never have. You should read more, read carefully and improve your knowledge. It will be good for you.

        Regretfully, I have to second what ‘Burning Issue’ has said as I have authentic knowledge of our soldiers abusing several (Sinhalese)girls down south (just inland of Kalutara town near the AMW factory) during the JVP uprising of 1971. I remember that some of the girls were not even JVP cadres, and that some were killed to ensure that there would be no repercussions.

        Many of our soldiers are decent and professional, but sadly a very large number come, as of necessity, from backgrounds with a laxity of decency and discipline. It is not possible in times of conflict to exert 100% control over all of your forces and inevitably bad things will happen. Our misfortune is that these days everybody seems to have the wherewithal to record these events.

    Hi Ben.. the whole world knows that this report and the C4 documentary are all credible.

    But the issue si your last statement
    “PS: However, Canada’s lone statement of dissent is nothing, but BS by Harper. Canada is accomodating evil in Israel intensively. They made a political decision to do the opposite in Sri Lanka. To accomodate the very loud LTTE lobby in Toronto.”

    This is a catch 22 situation.

    If a country decide to go to CHOGAM they are legitimising the regime accused of war crime…
    …; if they dont go they are in the payroll of LTTE diaspora

      RajasH,

      “If a country decide to go to CHOGAM they are legitimising the regime accused of war crime…”

      Nope. Those who dislike what Rajapassa has been upto, should have the courage to come here.

      Stand in Solidarity with the whole of Sri Lanka. And all her people.

      They must make sure they unmask the dictator on the CHOGM stage, before they leave.

      Only then will GHOGM may have gained something.

      PS: Boycotts rooted in lectures by LTTE backers in the West are bound to fail internally in Sri Lanka. Coz’ LTTE is a far bigger evil than Rajapassa dictatorship. Therefore will not help Sri Lanka.

      Cheers!

        war crime against Tamils are legitimate as you stated before, the ware crimes must be brought to the attention of the IC and the culprits dealt with proportinately, you cant just dismiss it as letures by LTTE backers

        Rajapakse will exploit the photo opportunity that CHOGAM will provide and posters will spring all over southern Sinhala Sri Lanka. He will promote himslef not as King of Sri Lanka but as the King of 1/3rd of the worlds population, elected by them to lead them for the next two years. the Sinhla south will fall for it, Mahinda will then call for Presidential elections and another 4 years of we all knmow what.

      GoSL allocates a lagre proportion of National income to train its military on how to fuck death bodies, oral sex, gang rape, killing, abdutions and how to escape from justice. What a country it is. Now you realise why LTTE has chosen such a violant action to safegard the Tamil.. This is why many suicide bombers emerged in LTTE.

    Please see the film clip on ‘Samraat Asokan’ in which the Character of Emperor Asoka played by a young Sivaji Ganesan (http://dbsjeyaraj.com/dbsj/archives/26527). I am unable to isolate the specific film clip.

    Lesson: War is evil and makes men beasts. There are no good wars and bad wars. All wars make ‘Man eat Man’. All wars lead to women being preyed upon during and after.

    However, after a war, the beasts have to revert to being men.

    The measure of success of reconciliation is on how quickly this reversion to becoming humans can be achieved.

    We have failed as a people in this regard. The government has failed more.

    It was hard to see the earlier clip on the very talented and young Shoba (Isaipriya) in life and brutal death. What happened between the last minutes or hours of life and her death, can only be imagined by extrapolating the fear she expresses on being captured.

    The consideration shown by the soldiers who captured her and the brutality of those who ultimately killed her, is a contrast underscoring the fact that even amidst war human norms can be observed when possible, as in these circumstances.

        I like to see you commenting on the substance of a blog or a comment relating to it at least once, instead of whistling from the gallery. I will in all earnestness like to know what you find wrong with my comment and how it amounts to ,” Shamelessly singing for supper”. I wish I was useful enough to any one to pay for my supper.

        Please try to contribute something useful to contribute to a discussion on the past, present and future of this island and ite people, without being the spoiler from the gallery. You are committing a violence against truth , facts, hope and peace that is no different in scope than the violence committed before, during and after the wars.

    Not surprised at all. How many more of incidents like these you want to hear or know? Hundreds of my clients have had the similar and even more of such treatment. We had a forum day before yesterday with the NGOs and the civil authorities about abuse suicide and torture at …… hospital in the North. Most of us felt helpless to help the helpless ones…. The deep psychological wounds created are getting worse by repetition of the events which are being used for publication to prove the violation of human rights. What some of us do is the ‘Ministry of the Good Samaritan” rather than getting publicity. Healing the Wounds of trauma in view of getting holistic to get better….

    I know the Tamil families can read books from uk public libraries about Bosnia-Serb war, do copy paste of articles change the names of characters to tamil. if LTTE can cover up their mistakes SLDF can do it too.

    This stupid Tennis game of allegations, cinematic journlasim is no good. Critical journalism from minority viewpoint is quite facade has become insane as world govts. tamil family and sinhala family want justice through system of democracy. but only Fate and destiny can decide the time for justice to b delivered. Its not normal for them 2 open up to journos about their torture xp without having gone 4 counselling, its not credible. Where are the medical reports of the survivor’s testicles of alleged torture?

    This is a fight between upclass Tamils and Sinhala ppl created by the Brit Masters.

    Her English is correct. Yes this is something possible in future, not something that happened. If she was translating it from Tamil, all the same, guy was speaking of something that could happen in the future, some of them he(or Francis) “would” like to experience.

    What a cheap gimmick to seek asylum. What evidence is there to point a finger at the SL army? Why not be the LTTE? Of course if they say the LTTE then no asylum say the army and the Tamil diaspora will roll-out a red carpet welcome. Easy ticket to UK maybe we should all try it.

    Native Vedda! You are Odious, I am not. I am clever and intelligent, analytic. I don’t like when people stand naked in front of me without covering there backs. Australian don’t give a damn whether these are correct reporting or not. Media always try to manipulate people. More vulgar the reports are there will be more audience. But for Australians this is like reading the Horoscope in Daily Telegraph or those days News of the World in England.Frances’s eyes looks like a woman missing sex and like to listen to exiting sexual stories.

    I do not condone rape. But more than 60% of Tamils in Sri Lanka live outside of the Northern province and they do so without any problem. I hope this Lady also produces a film on the torture and rape committed by the LTTE on its own people. The LTTE was annihilated because they went against their own people. The LTTE rump/extortion machine needs people like this Lady to front them in order to continue to raise money and live a luxurious life in the west.
