[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 August 2005, 07:47 GMT]
Muttur Magistrate Mr.M.Ganesharajah Wednesday ordered the release of Mr.S.Wijekumar, Trincomalee District Director of Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) following an application by the Muttur Police that he could be released with the money Rs 2 million he was in possession at the time of arrest, legal sources said. Sri Lanka Army soldiers manning the checkpoint at Kaddaiparichchan to the entrance of the LTTE controlled Muttur east Tuesday evening took into custody Mr.S.Wijekumar, and handed him over to Muttur Police.

The Muttur Police produced Mr.Wijekumar along with other officials who were taken into custody by the soldiers manning the Kaddaiparichchan army checkpoint Tuesday evening when he was proceeding to LTTE held Muttur east area to make payments for the several development projects now being implemented by the TRO.

The Muttur Police told court that at the inquiry held into the incident that it was found that the money was being taken to make payments as stated by Mr.Wijekumar. Hence the Police had no objection to release TRO officials with the money.

Accordingly the Magistrate released Mr.Wijekumar and others of the TRO, legal sources said.

There is no Sri Lankan bank in Muttur east except the Socio Economic Development Bank (SEDB) which has its headquarters in Killinochchi
