Man missing, 3 seek protection with HRC Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 10 December 2007, 15:35 GMT]
A 25-year-old mother with her child from Thenmaraadchi, and two youths from Cha’ndilippaay and Maanipaay, sought protection with Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna Monday due to death threats from Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and SLA-backed paramilitaries. Meanwhile, a mason from Oaddumadam in Jaffna is reported missing since Wednesday after leaving work in the morning, according to complaint made with HRC Monday.

The mother, with her one-and-a-half year old child, is originally from Udaiyaarkaddu, Mullaitheevu, in Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam area.

She has been living in Usan, Mirusuvil in Thenmaraadchi since the beginning of the peace period, an area close to SLA northern Front Defence Line (FDL).

SLA troopers and paramilitary armed men, during a search conducted at night time in her house, found from her National Identity Card that she was from Udaiyaarkaddu in LTTE held area.

Since then the SLA troops and paramilitaries have been threatening to kill her, she said to the HRC officials and requested them to send her back to Udaiyaarkaddu.

One of the two youths who sought protection with HRC Monday is from Cha’ndilippay, aged 20, and the other is a 28-year-old youth from Maanipaay.

Meanwhile, a mason and the father of nine children was reported missing since Wednesday morning after leaving to work as usual from his house in Araali Veethi in Oaddumadam, Jaffna.

Earlier, a mason from Koaddaikkaadu in Koandaavil, Jaffna had failed to return home after leaving for work on 3 December, and is feared abducted, according to complaint registered by his family members with Jaffna Human Rights Commission (HRC), on 4 December.
