Dissident JVP parliamentarian seeks security from police

[TamilNet, Friday, 20 June 2008, 20:56 GMT]
Anjana Umma, dissident Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) parliamentarian Friday wrote to the Inspector General of Police seeking security for her as she and her family members have been facing threats due to her latest political decision, media sources said.

The IGP, Victor Perera is reported to have instructed the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) of the region where Anjana Umma has been hiding since June 17 after her announcement that she would function as an independent in parliament.

Anjana Umma had told the IGP since her political decision to leave JVP, she had been staying in a house in Galeliyea. She was under control of some JVP parliamentarians before that. In some instances they did not allow her to go to parliament.

She said she and her family members would face threat and intimidation from these elements once she returns home, Anjana Umma informed the IGP in writing, media sources said.
