Batticaloa detainees list posted, three missing

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 30 May 2001, 18:27 GMT]
The Counter Subversive Unit (CSU) of the Sri Lankan Police in Batticaloa Wednesday submitted to the district court a list of 21 persons who are being held in its special camp in the eastern town. A recently promulgated Emergency Regulation requires officers in charge of gazetted detention centres to submit to the courts a list of persons in their custody every fortnight. Judicial officers are also allowed to visit such detention centres. The CSU camp in the Batticaloa town is not the only gazetted detention centre in the eastern district, sources pointed out.

Meanwhile, Human Rights Commission officials in Batticaloa said that three civilians who were arrested on 22 May by a Sri Lanka army deep penetration team in the hinterland of Vaaharai, 64 kilometres north of the eastern town, are still missing.

The Human Rights Commission office in Batticaloa had made inquiries from the 23-1 brigade of the SLA at Welikanda, 62 kilometres northwest of the eastern town, about the three persons who were arrested and taken away by troops from the Maruthankerni Kulam on 22 May.

The 23-1 brigade had denied any knowledge of the three persons and had claimed that troops had recovered only two assault rifles in Maruthankerni Kulam during the operation that day.
