INDICTMENT AGAINST SRI LANKA
The Charge is Ethnic Cleansing
Sri Lanka's Undeclared War on Eelam Tamils
...in the Shadow of the Ceasefire: 2002 - 2007
Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) that
promised to halt the military offensives at the negotiation table,
in front of the International Community in Geneva, has sent a
"message of terror" within 24 hours of LTTE delegation's arrival in
Kilinochchi by conducting
a "gruesome" aerial attack
killing an innocent family and terrorising the patients at the
General Hospital premises, said Political Head of the Liberation
Tigers, S. P. Thamilchelvan, following the Sri Lankan aerial attack
in the heart of Kilinochchi town Thursday. Hospitals which serve the
most humanitarian need and deserve utmost protection from any acts
of violence, have now become targets to GoSL's campaign of terror,
he added. "The International Community should have no reservation in
condemning this gruesome act," Mr. Thamilchelvan said.
SLAF attacks hospital surrounding in Kilinochchi, 500 patients flee hospital
Doctors evacuating the patients from hospital also complained that Colombo had been delaying in extending ICRC protection to the hospital. There was no LTTE military installation near the hospital, the doctors added. Students at Central College and Technical College located near the hospital were caught in shock. Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission officials visited the vacated Hospital following the attack. One of the 16 bombs did not explode.

School attendance in Kilinochchi dropped Friday and hundreds of
patients stayed away from Kilinochchi hospital which was evacuated Thursday
following the SLAF attack on a civilian family. A heart patient died at the
hospital due to the blast shock and most of the patients who were forced to
leave the hospital Thursday, were yet to return to hospital, the doctors said.
Relatives of patients were seen at the hospital to receive medicines. Normally
the hospital treats around 700 outpatients a day. Only 119 were registered at
the hospital's clinics Friday.
