The state-run Office for Missing Persons (OMP) stands accused of intimidating Tamil women who search for justice on behalf of their loved ones victimized by enforced disappearances.
Agitating in front of the district secretariat on April 29, relatives of missing persons in Mullaitivu charged they were under threat by the OMP to agree to receive compensation, instead of their demand for justice.
Head of their association Mariyasuresh Ishwari said they were receiving threats through telephone calls and by letter.
The OMP has warned them of legal action if they did not agree to attend talks to discuss compensation and death certificates, she said.
She said the women would commit suicide in front of OMP officials if they persisted against their call for justice.
They also demanded international intervention, as they continue their campaign for more than 2,250 days now.
