SLA attempts attack on office- Jaffna students

[TamilNet, Monday, 15 August 2005, 11:10 GMT]
International Student's Association of Tamil Eelam (ISATE) alleged in a letter of complaint sent to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) that Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers attempted to attack their office located at the Parameshwara Junction, Thirunelvely Jaffna, 3km northeast of Jaffna town Monday morning at 2 am.

"We witnessed several SLA soldiers clad in military uniform surrounding our offices and making phone calls to our office. We did not answer the calls. We are convinced that the soldiers tried to determine if students were awake inside the premises before carrying out an attack," the letter said.

"SLA soldiers have attacked our offices twice in recent months. We regard these attempts as a threat to all students in schools, technical colleges and in the Jaffna University.

"Parliamentarian S Gajendran's office is also located within our building.

"We request the SLMM to take steps to prevent SLA from harassing members of our Association," the letter said.
