The JMPGA further decided to request the Justice Minister to given an early appointment for a seven-member delegation to meet and brief him about its agitation for the last several years to trace the disappeared Tamil youths numbering more than six hundred following Riviressa military operation, sources said.

Meanwhile the Association of Relations of Missing Soldiers in Action (ARMSA) in the south has come forward to help the JMPGA to file action against the authorities concerned responsible for the alleged disappearance of Tamil youths in Jaffna after 1995 military operations, sources said.
