Kilinochchi relief organizaton urges immediate release of TRO workers

[TamilNet, Friday, 05 May 2006, 12:46 GMT]
Killinochchi East Rehabilitation Organization (KERO), in a memorandum issued Friday, appealed to the Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapakse to take immediate steps to release the abducted Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) workers from the custody of the para-militaries of the Sri Lankan Army (SLA). During a military operation on April 30 at Welikanda by LTTE against the paramilitary camp two TRO vehicles used by TRO workers at the time of abduction were recovered. SLA, paramilitaries and government media that they were not involved in the abduction, the memorandum pointed out.

"Two TRO vehicles used by the abducted TRO workers were recovered in the government controlled area located close to SLA camps and Police Stations. This is clear evidence of SLA's complicity in the abduction of TRO workers.

"Government of Sri Lanka should take immediate steps to order the SLA and paramilitaries to release the TRO workers without delay.

"We make this appeal on behalf of the grieved families of the abducted TRO workers," said the memorandum.
