India brush aside rape charges on IPKF

印度忽视对印度维和部队的强奸指控



India on Thursday refused to takecognizance of a Sri Lankan minister’s allegation that Indian Peace KeepingForce (IPKF) raped Tamil women during the civil war, stating that there was noofficial complaint from the Sri Lankan government.

1560.com_【官方首页】-钻石国际周四,印度决绝理会一位斯里兰卡部长对印度维和部队的指控,该部长称印度维和部队在内战期间强奸了泰米尔妇女,而印度方面声称并没有得到斯里兰卡政府的官方投诉。

“Sri Lankan government has not raised this with us. We can only respond togovernments, clearly and lucidly, but not voices in wilderness,” said Indian ExternalAffairs Ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin.

“斯里兰卡政府没有向我们提出这个问题。我们只会对政府提出的问题做出回应,”印度外交部发言人如是说。

He was replying to a question seekingIndia’s response on the remarks made by former LTTE breakaway faction leaderand now minister in Sri Lankan Cabinet Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan, known asKaruna.

1560.com_【官方首页】-钻石国际向印度提出指控这名斯里兰卡内阁部长Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan(人称Karuna)之前还是泰米尔伊拉姆猛虎解放组织所分离出来的一个派别的领导人。

Muralitharan alleged there was ‘evidence’that IPKF men had raped and killed Tamils during the operation in Sri Lanka.

Muralitharan称有“证据”表明印度维和部队在斯里兰卡维和期间强奸和杀害了泰米尔人。

Mr. Akbaruddin described Karuna’s statementas ‘voices from the wilderness’, a similar phrase that he had earlier used forthe Shahi Imam’s invitation to Pakistan Prime Ministerto attend his son’s anointment ceremony as successor.

印度外交部发言人称他的这个说法是“空穴来风”,先前Shahi Imam邀请巴基斯坦总理去参加他儿子的继承涂油礼时该发言人也使用了这个词。

He pointed out that the Sri Lankangovernment had not raised this, even though the Indian high commissionerremains in touch with them on a day-to-day basis.

这名发言人说斯里兰卡并有向印度方面提出这个问题,尽管印度高级特派员每天都与斯里兰卡政府有接触。
