Evicted Tamil civilians file affidavits in Supreme Court

[TamilNet, Thursday, 21 June 2007, 10:07 GMT]
Two Tamil civilians evicted from Colombo lodges and later brought back from Vavuniya during the first week of June have filed separate affidavits in the Sri Lanka's Supreme Court expressing their fear that they could be remanded in prisons if they continue to stay in the capital, legal sources said.

Francis Xavier, 18, of Pandatherippu and Rajeswary George Fareeda, 36, of Nallur in Jaffna district Tuesday filed their affidavits in the Supreme Court.

Francis Xavier in his affidavit said a police officer warned him in Vavuniya that he would be sent to jail if he stays in Colombo for more than two weeks.

Rajeswary Fareeda also said that police in Vavuniya also warned her before being brought back to Colombo that she would be sent to prison if she stays more than the required period.

Meanwhile, the fundamental right petitions filed by the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) is listed for inquiry on June 22 in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court presided by Chief Justice Sarath N.Silva issued a stay order on the eviction of Tamil civilians from lodges and issued notices on the IGP, Defence Secretary and police officials cited as respondents in the FR petition immediately after it was filed by the CPA, sources said.
