A'pura Magistrate wants full report on airbase attack

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 07 November 2007, 16:39 GMT]
The Anuradhapura Magistrate Wasantha Jinadasa Tuesday directed the Area Commanding Officer of the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) to submit a comprehensive report on the destruction and damage caused to the Anuradhapura airbase due to the pre-dawn land and air attack by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). The police told court while making this request that ten aircraft were destroyed and 16 damaged in the recent LTTE attack on the Anuradhapura air base. The buildings and machinery had been extensively damaged in the predawn attack.

The court issued the directive on a request made by a team of police officials led by Headquarters Inspector Sarath Prema in open court on the instruction of McCarthy Perera, Senior Superintendent of Police, according to media reports.

The court also directed the Area SLAF Commanding Officer to submit a report on the arms and the quantity of ammunition used by the SLAF personnel to repulse the attack.

The Bomb Disposal Unit of the Anuradhapura military base was instructed by the court to defuse the 164 unexploded bombs recovered during the search operation in the air base surroundings.
