4 civilians seek protection with HRC Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 07 February 2008, 11:04 GMT]
A young mother and her two children from Thenmaraadchi sought protection with the Human Rights Commission (HRC) offices in Jaffna Thursday due to death threats by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troops and SLA-backed paramilitaries, HRC officials said. A neighbour of the family also sought protection with the HRC Thursday for the same reason.

The mother is the wife of Vinothachandran who had been abducted by unknown armed men a month earlier.

The mother is 33-years-old and her two children are Nithushini, 11, and Nithushan, 9, residents of Kachchaay South, Kodikaamam in Thenmaraadchi.

The neighbour who sought protection with the HRC Thursday is Shanmugathas Sugathas.

SLA troops and paramilitaries have been demanding Sugathas information about his neighbour Vinothachandran who had been abducted a month earlier, he said in the complaint to the HRC.
