A former TNA parliamentarian has revealed that the LTTE had shot and killed innocent civilians during thee final stages of the war.

Former TNA parliamentarian S. Kanekaratnam has told an electronic media institution that the LTTE had shot and killed over 600 Tamil civilians during the final stages of the war.

Kanekaratnam was among the civilians in the LTTE areas during the final stages of the war.

He has said that the Sri Lankan security forces had not killed any civilian during the period, but it was the LTTE that had killed them.

Kanekaratnam has added that he too was used as a human shield by the LTTE among other people.

The former Tamil legislator has been quoted questioning the panel of experts appointed by the UN Secretary General on Sri Lanka if they could authenticate any of the allegations leveled against the government, as they have been made based on material given pro-LTTE persons.

Kanekaratnam has said that he could speak on the final stages of the war as he witnessed first hand the atrocities committed by the LTTE.
