Another Tamil mother who has been protesting for more than 1,898 days passed away last night, without ever finding out the whereabouts of her forcibly disappeared son, son-in-law and grandson.
At least 115 Tamils have now passed away since protests began more than 5 years ago. None of them have received answers on where their loved ones are or received justice for their disappearances.
75-year-old Thangarasa Selvarani had been part of the families of disappeared protest in Vavuniya.
She was demanding justice for the disappearances of her son Thangarasa Thayaparan, son-in-law- Thampu Thiyagarasa and grandson Thiyagarasa Manokaran.
All three had reportedly been abducted by the Sri Lankan military in 2008, whilst gathering firewood in Chettikulam, Vavuniya. Thiyagarasa was just 17-years-old at the time.
Their whereabouts have never been revealed since.
