    Mass-rape of the Tamil Women War Victims in Theavipuram, Sri Lanka. Tamils Against Genocide (TAG), a US-based activist group that seeks legal redress to Tamil victims of war, said Saturday that the organization is piecing together evidence based on an eye-witness testimony that up to 20 women, separated from nearly 200 civilians who surrendered to the SLA, were alleged to have been raped by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers near the village of Theavipuram, in Mullaiththeevu, in April 2009. While lack of witness protection program in Sri lanka, and threat to life of witnesses who appear against Security Forces have placed TAG’s legal effort in UK on hold, TAG said that the current legal action in UK involving Ex-Army Commander, Prasanna de Silva, may provide the momentum required to seek witnesses and to obtain corroborative evidence to identify the perpetrators of the alleged crime. “Families in small numbers were fleeing the Rajapaksa Government demarcated No Fire Zone (NFZ) in Mu’l’lvaikkaal in Mullaitivu from February till the end of the war on or around 17th May. There were persistent rumours among the beleagured civilians that mass rapes were occurring during this period. 40 to 50 Kilometer area inland from the SLA forward lines close to the beachhead of the NFZ, was fully occupied by several divisions of the SLA. No one, other than the victim-escapees, can bear witness to the crimes committed by the SLA in the area controlled by the SLA,” a witness who was working among the population in Mu’l’livaikkaal until the end of the war, and later escaped to a foreign country, told TamilNet. According to this witness, evidence of such crimes can be gathered as soon as there is free access to the Vanni area. “It will be hard for the military to destroy all the evidence; the memory of such crimes last until the victim is dead,” the witness said.
