[TamilNet, Friday, 27 May 2005, 10:18 GMT]
Thamil Eelam Police on Friday produced three suspected Sri Lankan homeguards in Thamil Eelam District Court in Kokkaddicholai. The Home Guards were arrested by the Liberation Tigers on Tuesday in LTTE held Poraithivu, 35 km southwest of Batticaloa, according to police reports. The judge, refusing bail, has ordered remand till 10th of June. Officials from Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) and parents were allowed to meet with the arrested persons, sources in Kokkadicholai said.

LTTE's Mavady Munmari military wing arrested the three persons who were riding in a motorbike inside the LTTE held area. The persons were handed over to Thamil Eelam Police on Thursday.

Sri Lankan Police from Bakiella Police earlier on Thursday said they had complained to SLMM about three persons, Mr. K. M. Samintha (24), Mr. A. M. Santhapala (19) and Mr. R. A. Sanakapradeepkumar (22), who had gone missing. According to Sri Lankan Police one of the persons is a Home Guard cadre and the other two are bus drivers.

However, the Thamil Eelam Police personnel who produced the persons to the court said that their preliminary investigations had revealed that all the three persons were Home Guards associated with the Sri Lankan Army.

The persons were from Lugu Lantha in Bakiella, a Sinhala village, is located between Amparai and Maha Oya, 25 km north of Amparai.
