Sri Lanka: Chilling video of LTTE journalist Issei Priya captured, dragged by Sri Lankan forces

Sri Lanka, Nov 2 2013: Channel Four television has come out with “yet another evidence” of war crimes by Sri Lankan army during the final phase of Eelam war in May, 2009.

The video show Issei Priya, aged 27, weeping and telling Sri Lankan soldiers she was not LTTE supremo V Prabhakaran’s daughter, being dragged through slushy ground.

Issei Priya was a TV news presenter for LTTE.

While there are no visuals of her being shot, the fact that she was captured on camera while being dragged away crying and found later dead in a trench, with hands tied, proved she was killed in custody.

However, the Sri Lankan military has been claimed that Lieutenant Colonel Issei Priya was killed in combat.

The Sri Lankan high commission has told Channel Four that ā€œLieutenant Colonel Issei Priya was engaged in a hostile operation against the Sri Lanka Security Forces when she met her endā€.

Photographs that the channel could obtain showed that she was captured by the soldiers on May 18 (2009), the day before Prabhakaran was shot dead.

That she was later found dead and there was video footage showing soldiers dragging her weeping only proved that Priya was killed after being captured.

While the Sri Lankan military claimed that Priya was a combatant, her friends in LTTE have been quoted saying she had never involved in fighting because of a heart condition.

It was said that she was a singer, dancer, actor and was mostly involved in LTTE media as a TV news presenter. Her six-month-old child was killed in the battle.

Channel Four had earlier released footage titled ā€˜Sri Lankaā€™s Killing Fieldsā€™ showing gory visuals of Tamils being executed with hands tied and of Tiger chief Velupillai Prabhakaranā€™s 12-year-son Balachandran dead with bullet shots in chest.

The latest video has been released at a time when there is much political and diplomatic pressure on Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to stay away from the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting scheduled to be held in Colombo later this month.

Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Friday admitted; “I am aware that some ministers were opposed to Prime Minister’s participating in CHOGM. We are aware of that.”

He did not identify the ministers but his comments came against the backdrop of Congress leader and Union Shipping Minister G.K. Vasan urging the Prime Minister on Thursday that India should boycott the CHOGM keeping in mind the sentiments of Tamil Nadu parties.

Vasan said he met the Prime Minister to apprise him of the view of the people in Tamil Nadu and the unanimous resolution adopted by the state assembly demanding that India ‘completely’ boycott CHOGM in Sri Lanka next month.

“The Prime Minister informed that he would act keeping the sentiments of people of Tamil Nadu in mind over Sri Lanka. He had assured to take a good decision,” he stated.
