[TamilNet, Friday, 14 November 1997, 23:59 GMT]
The protest fast by the organisation for the arrested and the missing in Jaffna was successfully concluded this evening in the Perumal Kovil grounds.
The satyagraha was addressed by Somasundara Paramacharya Swamikal - a Hindu priest.
About five hundred people attended the protest fast.
The token fast was ceremonially concluded by Nisanth - a representative of the EPDP's Jaffna office.
Sources said that the 51-2 brigade commander at Hotel Gnanam had wanted the leader and secretary of the organisation to come and see him.
They, however, had gone home after the fast was over.
