SLA continues detention of IDPs in Kaithadi camp

[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 November 2009, 05:44 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities in Jaffna continue to detain a group of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) including female undergrads of Jaffna University though action is taken to close all IDP camps in Jaffna and to detain the remaining IDPs in Raamaavil camp in Thenmaraadchi, sources in Jaffna said. Though the relatives of the above IDPs in Jaffna had applied to take responsibility of the IDPs they are continued to be held as SLA has not issued the needed ‘clearance’ to release them, Jaffna Government Agent said.

According to the present procedure the camps in Koappaay and Mirusuvil Church had been closed and the IDPs from Mullaiththeevu and Ki’linochchi not claimed by their relatives are held in Raamaavil camp.

Though Vanni IDPs are being taken charge of by their relatives in Jaffna peninsula the group detained in Kaithadi camp has not been released by the SLA.

Some of the female undergrads of Jaffna University released first and then arrested by the SLA too are in the group of IDPs held in Kaithadi camp.

The number of the persons held in Kaithadi camp or any other information about them remain unknown.
