A Government With Blood On Its Hands

[ Sunday Leader-By Frederica Jansz]

According to a WikiLeaks cable this statement was made by Basil Rajapaksa, brother of and Advisor to the President, to then US Ambassador in Colombo Robert. O. Blake. Jnr.
The cable is classified as “CONFIDENTIAL” and recounts details of a meeting Blake had with Basil Rajapaksa on October 04, 2006. (See Cable)
Rajapaksa was referring to the murder of five Tamil students in Trincomalee on January 2, that year. (Read The Terrible Truth of the Trincomalee Tragedy by D. B. S. Jeyaraj elsewhere on these pages for a detailed account of what took place).

Speaking with remarkable candor to Robert Blake, Rajapaksa had in this instance admitted that members of Sri Lanka’s security forces namely the Special Task Force (STF) carried out an utterly diabolical extrajudicial killing of five young people.
