Moothoor youths have stated in their applications that they were displaced from their own village Iruthayapuram in August 1996 due to violence. They were resettled in their village last year after ten years living elsewhere as refugees. They were arrested soon after their resettlement. Police did not give the reason for their arrest. The police forced them to sign documents prepared in Sinhala language. Trincomalee youth has stated in his petition that the police arrested him when he was working in a non-governmental organization.

All the petitioners have begged the court to order for their immediate release and compensation to each 200,000/=.
