Plaintiffs concerned of new JSC appointment to Kayts courts

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 26 June 2007, 19:44 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Judicial Service Commission (JSC) appointment of an additional magistrate to Kayts Courts, to handle cases related to 2006 May 1 Allaipiddy massacres where 13 civilians were massacred in a single night, raised concern among the victims' relatives, sources in Kayts said. A public identification parade ordered by Kayts magistrate Mr. Jayaraman Trotsky had not materialised due to the non-cooperation Allaipiddy Sri Lanka Navy (SLN), who were accused to complict in the crime by the related family members.

JSC appointed Jaffna Magistrate Mr. R. K. Vignaraja as the additional magistrate to Kayts Courts to deal with Allaipiddy, Naaranthanai massacre cases with a view to accelerate the legal process, legal society sources in Jaffna said.

The appointment of an additional magistrate in the context of the public identification parade ordered by Kayts magistrate having failed to take place and dragged long due several factors including the non-cooperation by the Kayts SLN and police, has created suspicions among Allaipiddy residents, sources in Kayts said.

Mr. R. K. Vignarajah is scheduled to begin judicial proceedings on July 27, according to legal society sources.

Meanwhile, the Secretary of the Special Commission appointed by the President of Sri Lanka to inquire into gross rights violations in Sri Lanka, including Allaipiddy massacre, has directed Kayts Magistrate, Mr. Jayaraman Trostsky, to submit certified copies of all statements and other related documents of Allaipiddy massacre case, to the Commission immediately.
