Vavuniyaa court remands TNA parliamentarian Kanagaretnam till 4 December

[TamilNet, Saturday, 14 November 2009, 05:20 GMT]
Mr. Sathasivam Kanagaretnam, Mullaiththeevu district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian was produced in Vavuniyaa Magistrate’s court Friday morning for the first time after six months detention in the headquarters of the Terrorist Investigation Division of the Sri Lanka Police. He was taken into custody from Oamanthai camp in May this year while he was staying with his family. He fled from Mullaiththeevu when Sri Lanka Army launched its final battle against the LTTE and sought refuge in Oamanthai.

Since then he was held in detention under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) and interrogated.

The TID team produced him before Vavuniyaa acting Magistrate Mr. M. Sittampalam and made an application to remand him as their investigation against him was not completed. They needed more time to interrogate him.

The acting Magistrate allowed the application by the TID and ordered remand for Mr. Kanagaretnam till December. The court further directed to produce him in Vavuniyaa courts on the next date of inquiry.
