Father spots missing son

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 22 April 1998, 23:59 GMT]
Jacob Devadas, a fisherman of Kurunagar in Jaffna, lodged a complaint today at the Jaffna National Human Rights Commission office, stating that on Aril 8, he had seen his missing son in a Sri Lankan Army truck near the Muniappar temple. Suresh Devedas had been arrested by the SLA on July 20, 1996 and has been missing since.

Devadas told the Commission that on the day he had seen his son he (Devadas) was going along the Pannai road while a foot ball match between the Jaffna University and the Singing fish sports club was in progress at the Duraiappah stadium.

As he was passing an SLA truck near the Muniappar temple nearby, a boy in the vehicle had screamed "Appah" (father).

Devadas had immediately looked back and seen a soldier pushing his son to the floor of the truck.

The soldier had been so threatening that Devadas, fearing harm, had gone off towards the crown theatre.

But later when he had come back to note the number of the SLA truck it was gone said Deavadas in his complaint to the Human Rights Commission.
