JPMGA expresses concern over delay in HC inquiry

[TamilNet, Thursday, 29 July 2004, 00:43 GMT]
Jaffna Missing Persons Guardians' Association (JPMGA) said Wednesday in a statement that it has started losing confidence that Habeas Corpus (HC) applications filed by several members of the association would be inquired with out delay. The JPMGA accused the Attorney General and the Sri Lanka government's security establishment for not extending constructive co-operation in conducting the inquiry into the HC applications, sources said.

The JPMGA further said in all the HC applications members of the government security forces have been cited as accused or respondents. State Counsels are not appearing on behalf of these respondents citing reason that parties concerned have failed to brief them.

Mr.M.Remedius, Counsel for petitioners in 42 Habeas Corpus applications listed for hearing, Wednesday brought to the notice of the Jaffna High Court Judge the concern and the disappointment expressed by the JPMGA, legal sources said.
