17 Tamil youths abducted, gone missing in Trincomalee, Ampaa’rai

[TamilNet, Monday, 06 April 2009, 14:11 GMT]
Seventeen Tamil youths have been either abducted or gone missing in the past two weeks in Moothoor East in Trincomalee district and Thirukkoayil in Batticaloa district, according to complaints made by the youths’ relatives to Trincomalee district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian K. Thurairatnasingam. Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers and paramilitary military men who operate with them come to the houses of the youths in white vans and forcibly take the youths away, the relatives said in the complaint.

Some others have gone missing after going to their work places in Moothoor East and Thirukkoayil.

Meanwhile, SLA had arrested 12 Tamil youths last week in Moothoor East in the search and checking operations.

The search operations are conducted daily and many are subjected to rigorous interrogation.

As a result Tamil young men and women in Moothoor East and Thirukkoayil are leaving their homes seeking safer places elsewhere, the relatives told K. Thurairatnasingam.
