Former Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran this week released pictures of the alleged torture camp in Varani area of the district in which blood-stained walls of a house were shown.

Premachandran claimed the house was used as a cell by the Sri Lankan military to torture civil war detainees.

He said the chamber has been in existence since the army wrested Jaffna from the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in 1995. The Sri Lankan army has denied the existence of any such camps in the north.

The secret Trincomalee 12-cell prison had markings on the walls that indicated detainees were kept there till 2010, one year after the nearly three-decade-long war against the LTTE ended, the UN group has said.
