[TamilNet, Saturday, 07 April 2012, 09:52 GMT]
At least ten Tamils have been taken into custody by the occupying Sri Lanka Army and SL Police in cordon and search operations in Trincomalee district on Friday. The victims, detained by the SL Army include uprooted persons recently returned from Tamil Nadu and former LTTE cadres ‘rehabilitated’ and released by the SLA. Villagers from remote areas of the district said that around 600 to 700 members of SL Army and SL Police were involved the house-to-house search operations and that they took the males for interrogation to their camps in the presence of their wives and children.

All the ten of Tamil men detained on Friday are married men. Three of the detained persons are from Panku'lam area in Morawewa DS division, one from Thiriyaay of Kuchchave'li DS division, and two from ‘welfare centres’ located in Ki'liveddi and Paddith-thidal of Moothoor DS division.

The arrested persons are detained in army camps without any investigation and those returned from South India for resettlement are sent to welfare centres.

When civil representatives sought information on the detentions Friday, the SL military officers were saying that they were acting on the orders of the higher authorities in Colombo.
