Gotabaya responsibl​e for Matale grave: Sinhala woman
[ Wednesday, 10 April 2013, 02:27.03 PM GMT +05:30 ]
The largest mass grave in the country excavated in Matale between last November and February this year has set a new situation in motion following the revelation that the skeletal remains belonged to the period between 1986 and 1990.

The onus is now on the government to carry out a full-scale probe on the Matale mass graves following the announcement by the Matale Magistrate that the grave belonged to the period of the second JVP insurgency.

The grave was accidentally discovered when the ground at Matale Hospital premises was dug last November for construction purposes. Nevertheless, eyewitness Kamalawathi said she had waited patiently for over 20 years for the time to bring justice to the fallen comrades.

The army surrounded the village that day and my two sons were taken by them,” she said. According to Kamalawathi, she never found any information about her sons held in Vijaya College camp.

I contacted a local politician and he said he will make arrengments to meet  Gotabaya Rajapaksa commander of the detention. He refused to meet me. However a few weeks later, the family did not find the sons at Vijaya College camp and had no clue where they was.

Gota’s War’ had clearly stated that the senior official in the defence establishment was called to Matale in 1989 and the Army there was placed under him. It also states that special operations were carried out in the area and officers Shavendra Silva and Jagath Dias served in Matale during this period. They should be held responsible for this incident. She pledge official to hold DNA test on these human skeletons.
