SLN releases arrested Pt.Pedro fishermen

[TamilNet, Monday, 25 July 2005, 04:05 GMT]
Three fishermen of Supparmadam in Point Pedro in Jaffna district arrested by Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) soldiers Friday morning for venturing into LTTE controlled Vadamaradchchi east division were released after fellow fishermen protested to the Point Pedro Police, sources in Vadamarachy said.

Fellow fishermen in their protest to the police said that the three persons went for fishing but later their boat drifted towards the sea area controlled by the LTTE along Vadamaradchchi east. Navy personal arrested them when they were returning to government-controlled seashore, sources said.

The SLN released two of them and detained the third person on a report from the Police.

Third fisherman also released Friday evening following agitation by fellow residents of the Supparmadam, fisheries sources said.
