Tamil men accuse continuing torture in Sri Lanka Take a stand against torture and urge UN Human Rights commission for human rights to investigate
Updated Date: 08/11/2017

Tamil men seeking asylum in Europe claim they were abducted, raped and tortured by government forces in Sri Lanka.

Details of the abuse of more than 50 men, which one human rights expert has described as “the most egregious and perverted that I’ve ever seen”, have been revealed by the Associated Press.

Ann Hannah, head of international advocacy at Freedom from Torture, which provides medical assessments to support asylum claims, told the Guardian the stories highlighted by the AP were “completely consistent with the types of abuse we’ve seen and been documenting for many years, including since the end of the conflict”.
