SLA, Police harass TRO officer

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 12 November 2003, 16:26 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army and Police in Batticaloa stopped the vehicle in which the executive director of the Tamils’ Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) in the Batticaloa district, Mr. Kingsley Rajanayakam, was traveling on the Station road at about 7 p.m. Monday, and subjected him and his TRO vehicle to intrusive search and harassment, sources said.

Mr. Rajanayakam has denounced the harassment by the SLA and Police. He said that the TRO is a registered Non-Governmental Organization involved in rehabilitation and alleviating the suffering of people, not just in the NorthEast but outside as well. He said he was surprised that the SLA would harass such an organization working for the betterment of the people.

He said that he was asked to alight the vehicle and harassed, and he would report this incident to the TRO head office; he hoped such harassment would stop in the future.
