Jaffna student reported missing

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 07 March 2006, 17:20 GMT]
Parents of a seventeen-years-old boy in Jaffna, registered a complaint with Jaffna Human Rights Commission (HRC) office Tuesday that their son, Thushyanthan, has been missing for more than four days. HRC officials said there have been a marked increase in disappearances of persons in Jaffna district the last several days after a decline in the three weeks leading up to talks in Geneva.

Poologanathan Thushyanthan, 17, from Brown road, Kokuvil in Jaffna, was reported missing from 2nd March.

Thushyanthan's parents have told the HRC that there is no evidence of their son leaving the peninsula or having crossed over to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) territory through Muhamalai checkpoint, Jaffna Human Rights Commission office sources said.

HRC officials further said that cases of disappearances of Tamil youths after being arrested by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers in December 2005 and January 2006 still remain a mystery despite SLA officials' pledge to conduct investigation of persons in the list submitted by Jaffna HRC.
