[TamilNet, Monday, 13 December 1999, 21:33 GMT]
The Jaffna Magistrate on Monday ordered the Police not to send the three suspects in a case filed under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA), to the Anuradhapura remand.

Mr.S.A.E.Ehanathan, Magistrate, ordered the Police to keep the suspects in Jaffna in remand and to produce them before him on January 10.

The Magistrate made this order when the Attorney-at-Law for the suspects brought to the notice of the court that the suspects would be sent to the Anuradhapura remand by the Police.

Miss Shantha Abimannasingham, Attorney-at-Law made an application to court to order the Police to keep the suspects in Jaffna remand.

The Magistrate instructed the Police accordingly.

Markandu Krishanthan of Stanely Road, Jaffna, Krishnan Vijayakumar of Point Pedro Road, Jaffna and Satkunam Rajeenthan of Kankesanthurai Road, Jaffna were arrested by the army on 25th October this year. They were produced in court today under the PTA.
