Family in court under PTA

[TamilNet, Thursday, 18 July 2002, 10:10 GMT]
The Chavakachcheri acting Magistrate, Mr. A. Premshankar, Wednesday discharged three members of a family - father, mother and son- in a case filed under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA), following instructions from the Attorney General.

Five members of the family had been charged for assisting cadres of the Liberation Tigers by concealing weapons. The accused were arrested on 24 December 2001 at Chavakachcheri.

The suspects Kanapathy Thamby (father), his wife Thamby Nesamany and their three sons were produced in court Wednesday morning. When the case was taken up, the court was informed that the Attorney General had instructed the Police to withdraw the charges against the father, mother and one of the three sons, Thamby Sivakumar.

The acting magistrate then discharged the three accused and ordered other two sons be further remanded. They are presently being detained in a Jaffna prison.
