Ragihar Manoharan was one of five Sri Lankan Tamil students killed by security forces in January 2006 in the city of Trincomalee. Authorities have failed to prosecute anyone for their murder. His case is emblematic of the thousands of people subjected to human rights violations in Sri Lanka by government forces.
Two police investigations and a commission of inquiry on the case of the “Trinco Five” students have yet to result in anyone being held accountable. Call on the Sri Lankan government to effectively investigate and prosecute those responsible for these murders so that the families of the students may at last receive justice.
