MP Dissanayake, a Cabinet member of the previous Rajapaksa administration said that the media, too, were aware of some of those executed after they had surrendered (with White Flag after UN negotiated the surrender) though they remained silent. “Both you and we don’t talk about those who had been executed,” the National List MP said.
MP Dissanayake revealed that he knew LTTE Comander Ramesh and received a telephone call from him about ten minutes before he surrendered to the Army (With White Flag) on the Vanni east front. Ramesh was Executed by the Sri Lankan Army with hundreds of other LTTE Leaders who surrendered with with their family members with White Flags after UN negotiated the surrender.
Rebel UPFA MP S.B. Dissanayake has reiterated that the army executed some LTTE personnel including one-time LTTE Eastern Commander Thambiraja Thurairajasingham aka Ramesh after they surrendered to the advancing Sri Lankan Army.
The declaration was made in response to a media query at the residence of former Deputy Speaker and National List MP Tilanga Sumathipala last week. Although, MP Dilan Perera tried to intervene on several occasions, Dissanayake, a Cabinet member of the previous Rajapaksa administration said that the media, too, were aware of some of those executed after they had surrendered though they remained silent. “Both you and we don’t talk about those who had been executed,” the National List MP said.
Dissanayake and Perera are members of 15 member rebel group that quit the government after having voted for a No faith motion moved by the Joint Opposition in April 2018 against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe over treasury bond scams perpetrated in 2015 and 2016.
Dissanayake revealed that he knew Ramesh and received a telephone call from him about ten minutes before he surrendered to the Army on the Vanni east front.
The unexpected statement was made close on the heels of President Maithripala Sirisena revealing move to take up accountability issue at the forthcoming UNGA in New York.
Dissanayake said that the Army may have killed some surrendered persons but Prabhakaran killed more than hundred times than that. Towards the end of the conflict, Prabhakaran behaved in a very brutal manner towards his own people. Ramesh, who served him after Karuna switched sides was subsequently detained by Prabhakaran and was about to be shot by the LTTE when he escaped and surrendered to the Army.
Dissanayake revealed that he knew Ramesh and received a telephone call from him about ten minutes before he surrendered to the Army on the Vanni east front and was killed by the Army after he surrendered with White Flag.

War Crimes Evidence – execution of Ramesh by the sri lankan army – 22 may 2009 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvJbMCRLcEw
http://www.theglobalmail.org/feature/… This single murder, insignificant of itself, suggest the systematic, large-scale killing of prisoners – civilians and fighters – by the Sri Lankan authorities. These are the murders that the government has long denied, and which, when asked, they say didn’t happen, or if they did were committed by the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) themselves. When pressed, they ask for the evidence, assert that the recorded images are fakes, or request the names of witnesses, such as several Sinhalese troops who already have come forward to provide secret testimony of war crimes. Like all the other electronically recorded images that have emerged since the end of the war, there is nothing particularly furtive about these sequences. They were recorded by young men with mobile telephones, as trophy videos or as intelligence records. There are many fellow soldiers around, and they are relaxed and often smiling and joking as they go about their work. This is not a secret after all: they are responding to orders, issued by their commanders
