Families of persons gone missing in Jaffna confront Southern political leaders

[TamilNet, Sunday, 03 January 2010, 04:39 GMT]
Family members of young men and women, who had gone missing after arrest by Sri Lanka Armed Forces in Jaffna, confronted the political leaders from South who had accompanied Sarath Fonseka when they came to attend an event in Jaffna Veerasingham Hall Saturday. Parliamentarian Mano Ganeshan had arranged a meeting with the persons whose children or relatives had gone missing and the people who had come for this meeting appealed to the Southern political leaders amidst tears to help find their children, sources in Jaffna said. The mental anguish of the people affected was palpable, and the leaders assured the relatives that they will take appropriate action, the sources added.

The parents and relatives of the youths gone missing after arrest not only had the details of those gone missing but also the information on the soldiers who had arrested them.

Somawanse Amarasinghe, leader of JVP, was seen to be offering words of sympathy to the people who pleaded.
