Family man seeks protection at Jaffna HRC

[TamilNet, Monday, 23 July 2007, 21:18 GMT]
A 34-year-old family man, ordered by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers to report at the Madduvil camp, sought protection with the Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna office Monday, expressing fears that his life was in danger. HRC arranged for him to be placed in the protective custody of Jaffna prison through Jaffna courts, HRC officials said.

The said young man is a father of three children, and is from Madduvil in Chavakachcheari.

The number of complaints registered at the HRC of intimidation, death threats and torture of public, against police personnel, Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) marines, SLA troops and SLA-backed paramilitaries are escalating, the HRC officials said.

The SLA, following the recent attacks against the troops in Madduvil, Chaavakachcheari and other areas, frequently confiscate National Identity Cards (NIC) of youths and young family men in the area. When the men report at the camps to collect the IDs they are subjected to torture, intimidation and death threats, the family man said in his complaint to HRC.

SLA troopers from Madduvil had come to his house several times ordering him to report at their camp, and threatening his family members with death, he further said in the complaint.
