Sri Lanka failed to investigate other mass graves - TNA MP

Sri Lanka has failed to investigate a mass grave of over 80 skeletons discovered in Mannar in 2014, a TNA MP has accused.

While commending efforts to investigate the mass grave in Mannar town in the Sathosa retail premises, excavation of which has unearthed over 200 skeletons, including those of children, TNA MP Charles Nirmalanathan said that other sites in the district have been ignored or even covered up.

Referring specifically to the discovery of over 80 skeletons at a mass grave site in the Thirukketheeswaram area, Nirmalanathan said delays and adjournments in the Sri Lankan courts had resulted in a failure to investigate.

The MP also claimed that there were mass graves all over the district which went ignored by authorities.
