Jaffna SLN misdemeanors laid bare

[TamilNet, Friday, 18 March 2005, 16:59 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) soldiers were caught by officials of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) near Crow Island in Jaffna Thursday with fish forcibly seized from local fishermen, sources said.

HRCSL officials immediately brought this to the notice of the Jaffna area command of the Sri Lanka Army for disciplinary action against the errand navy personnel, sources said.

HRCSL officials caught the SLN personnel by surprise when they visited the site unannounced after complaints were made by fishermen that navy soldiers regularly plunder their catch when they return shore after fishing in Crow Island sea area, sources said.
