Col Ramesh's wife files a case in US against Sri Lanka President for Killing her husband: TGTE

Col Ramesh's wife, Mrs. Vathsala Devi, has filed a case in the United States, against the visiting Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapakse for killing her husband.

This case was filed in the Southern District of New York, under Alien Tort Statutes, on behalf of Col Ramesh's wife, by Attorney- at- Law Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran. The docket number of this case is: 11 CIV 6634.

Col Ramesh was shown on a documentary by UK's Channel 4 "Sri Lanka's Killing Fields", being interrogated by Sri Lankan soldiers in an undisclosed location. His body was also shown in different TV and was confirmed by his wife as her husband's body.

President Rajapakse in his capacity as the Commander in Chief of the Sri Lankan Armed Forces, bears primary responsibility for the killing of Col Ramesh and for perpetration of War Crimes, Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide of Tamil people.

According to the recent report by the UN Panel on Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan Security forces under the command of President Rajapakse, have committed War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity of Tamils. There are elements in this report that also constitute an act of Genocide.

According to this UN Panel Report around 40,000 Tamil people were killed, women were sexual assaulted and raped and around 140,000 people are unaccounted for.

Last week UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon referred this UN Panel Report to the UN Human Rights Council and to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to take action.
