This first lot includes names of current President, a former President, several diplomats and military leaders.

This year marks the 5th anniversary of the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan security forces in the final months of the war in 2009.

These killings prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to appoint a Panel of Experts to report on the scale of killings. According to the report by this UN Panel, tens of thousands of Tamil civilians were killed (UN Internal Review Report on Sri Lanka: over 70,000 Tamils were killed in five months in 2009).

These people were killed due to deliberate and intense shelling and bombing of areas designated by the government as “no-fire zones”’ where Tamil civilians had assembled for safety. The Sri Lankan Government also restricted food and medicine for Tamils, resulting in large numbers of people dying from starvation and many of the injured bleeding to death.

According to the UN Panel, the killings and other abuses that took place amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. Independent experts believe that there are elements of these abuses that constitute an act of genocide.
