(吉隆坡12日讯)追讨英军屠杀罪行工委会星期五举办百人大游行,分成多个小组,从马华大厦步行至英国驻马最高专员署,以呈交备忘录给英女皇伊丽莎白二世,为60年前在乌鲁音被屠杀的24名平民平反!

  工委会希望通过英女皇施压,英国政府能正视这个问题,并成立独立公正的听证会来审理这起案件。他们也要求英国政府就当年英军残暴屠杀一事道歉,并赔偿给殉难者家属,以及建立殉难者纪念碑。

有证据证人
工委会义务律师团召集人郭义民律师指出,手头上有证据及目击证人,可证明当年那批被杀害的居民,都是手无寸铁的平民百姓,绝非英国政府宣称的恶匪。
他说,从1993年开始着手为殉难者平反以来,已多次呈备忘录吁请英国政府深入调查此事,惟多年来都无法得到满意的答复。
“我们在今年3月25日提呈一份关于英军在1948年12月12日在峇冬加里屠杀24名乌鲁音村民的请愿书,不过,至今没有任何进一步消息。”

出席并一同步行者包括马华中委拿督陈财和、马华直辖区联委会顾问拿督李崇孟、马华公共服务及投诉组主任、工委会主席郭仁德、马来西亚青运总会长黄振隆、峇都区国会议员蔡添强等人。

  1. I strongly supported the victims of the batang kali massacre of 1-12 december 1948 in their efforts to seek for compensation and apology from the british government. however, in 1951, sir henry gurney, the british high commissioner for malaya, was assassinated in an ambush near fraser’s hill by the communist killer’s squad, i think, as an act of revenge for the killing of the chinese villagers at batang kali in 1948. the assassination of henry gurney marked the beginning of a major war between the chinese and the british which later forced the latter to consider giving the chinese the citizenship.
