SLA reluctant to disclose information of LTTE detainees in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Saturday, 23 October 2010, 06:03 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army did not disclose the number of ex-combatants of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) still held in the SLA special detention camp located in its High Security Zone in Thellippazhai in Jaffna when it allowed 23 female Liberation Tiger ex-combatants to join their families Friday evening. Sri Lanka Minister of Rehabilitation & Prison Reforms D. E. W. Gunasekara who was the chief guest in the Friday event said that the released ex-combatants had undergone vocational training, sources in Jaffna said. However, SLA is reluctant to reveal the number of LTTE ex-combatants still held in the SLA special detainment camp. Families of the detainees still held in the special camp are in a state of anxiety and fear as they do not know of their fate, the sources added.

SLA claimed that it has closed its Kaithadi detainment camp and had transferred the detainees in it to Thellippazhai special detention camp.

The 23 female Liberation Tiger ex-combatants are among those surrendered themselves in Jaffna to SLA during the war on Vanni.

Meanwhile, leading Sinhala female actress Malini Foneskea is on a visit to Jaffna with her family.

Jaffna is a good tourist place to spend the holidays with one’s family, she told local media in Jaffna
