[TamilNet, Wednesday, 10 November 2010, 11:24 GMT]
Sri Lanka Defence Ministry has ordered protection to Ms. Imelda Sukumar, Jaffna Government Agent (GA) in response to complaint made by her to the ministry of continuous threat to her life through phone calls, sources in Jaffna said. Her residence in the Old Park in front of Jaffna Government Secretariat is being guarded by SLA from Wednesday morning while her office is provided with police protection, the sources added.

Ms. Imelda Sukumar had recently publicly stated that there are no High Security Zones (HSZ) in Jaffna peninsula, raising anger among the uprooted people from Valikaamam North in Jaffna peninsula by the SLA nearly 20 years ago, the sources said.

Besides, Ms. Imelda Sukumar had witnessed before the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Committee (LLRC) and her statement on the situation in Mu’l’livaaikkaal during the final days of the war on Vanni too had triggered anger and dissatisfaction among the people affected by the war in Vanni, the sources further said.

Ms. Imelda Sukumar had returned to Jaffna after a long period of time to assume duties as Jaffna GA.
