Within hours after the EU's listing LTTE as a terrorist organization, LTTE leadership has ordered a mass execution of innocent Sinhalese civilians in Welikanda on 29th may 2006. The poor Sinhalese villagers who had been working as construction laborers at an irrigational project at ODDIYAMADU were arbitrary executed by shooting by armed LTTE cadres. One of the two survivors explaining the media, how the execution was carried out said:
"There were fourteen of us repairing the canal, but we were quite late on that day (29th) to finish the day's work. Once we stared to move home we were surrounded by a group of armed LTTE cadres and ordered us to muster on the road until their commander comes.
Few minutes later, we were taken by two and tied our hands on each others back and mustard on a line. Then the executioner came in front of us start shooting. A bullet went through my friend's head, tied on my back, so I also lay pretending dead."
The victims have been identified as the residents of MAHASENPURA village. Their names are as follows:S. K. SUNIL JAYAWARDANE, E. A. SARATH KUMARA, B. J. ABEYSOORIYA, G. S. GUNAWARDANE, SIRISENA, AJITH, T. M. DARMADASA, SARATH, T. B. WASANTHA KUMARA, B. T. T. DAMMIKA, T. M. GUNARATHNE and KUMARA.
It is evident that the LTTE leadership has not yet decided to give up his maniacal dream of an "ethnically pure Tamil land". Those SLMM monitors who visited the seen should have recalled how Adolph Hitler carried out the mass execution of Jews during the World War II. Unfortunately, LTTE has been allowed continue its barbarism in Sri Lanka unnoticed by the International Community for thirty years.
