JVP supporters harassed in Hambantota

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 September 2009, 15:23 GMT]
Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), one time ally of the ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government, Tuesday claimed that two of its supporters were abducted by the bodyguards of a cabinet minister. They were putting up posters about an upcoming meeting when the minister who was passing by stopped and ordered his bodyguards to take the two men away, JVP sources said.

The two men were dropped in the Hambantota police area later.

Meanwhile two JVP party offices in Netolpitiya and Walasmulla in Hambantota had been attacked by suspected UPFA supporters who came in vans, JVP sources said.

Complaints have been made in regard to the abduction and setting fire to party offices to relevant police stations by the JVP leadership.
