SLA harrasses former Jaffna parliamentarian

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 23 February 2010, 20:16 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers Tuesday evening harassed former Member of Parliament from Jaffna Selvarajah Kajendren and a group of civilians who were discussing with him near a temple in Thirunelveali, media circles in Jaffna said.

The SLA soldiers who approached the MP and those who were with him at the site, obtained their identification cards and were asked to wait at the site for more than an hour, the sources further said.

A group calling itself ‘Tamil Protection Alliance to Save the Country’ had threatened the former MP last month, commanding him to leave the country at once. The group had also threatened a few academics, including the brother of the MP in a handbill.
