EPDP complains to Harassment Committee

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 12 January 1999, 11:16 GMT]
The leader of the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP), Mr. Devananda, informed the Anti-Harassment Committee that Government Forces should be able to identify themselves and that their vehicles should carry registration numbers when conducting search operations in the capitol Colombo.

He said that he had been informed about an incident during which the Sri Lankan Army and Police had arrived in a vehicle without a registration number and had attempted to enter a women's hostel in Wellawatte, a suburb in Colombo, where a large number of Tamils live.

"It is a disgrace that forces who had come in a vehicle without a registration number and were unable identify themselves had attempted to search the women's hostel" Mr. Devananda said in his message faxed to the Committee yesterday.

He urged the Committee to take immediate steps to stop such things being repeated.
