Missing SLA soldiers' parents urge ICRC to approach LTTE

[TamilNet, Sunday, 08 February 2009, 02:25 GMT]
Parents of missing Sri Lankan soldiers this week urged the ICRC to approach the LTTE to check whether their sons were in Tiger custody as reports appeared in Colombo media of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) overrunning an LTTE detention camp in Visuvamadu area. The association of missing soldiers parents, based in Kandy, has sent a letter to the ICRC in Colombo urging it to take up the issue with the LTTE as they feared 750 Sri Lankan soldiers were in LTTE custody.

"We wish to bring to your notice that on the 3 of February 2009, the Sri Lankan army has run over a LTTE detention camp in Vishwamadu area," the letter to ICRC said.

"We strongly believe that this detention camp, had more than 750 Sri Lankan service personnel in detention until it was run over by the army. The photographs which are displayed in the Sri Lankan army website bear evidence of the same."

The association has urged the ICRC to take immediate action to secure the release of the release of the soldiers in LTTE custody.
