EPDP Jaffna Deputy Mayor placed in remand prison

[TamilNet, Monday, 10 May 2010, 16:57 GMT]
Jaffna magistrate Mr. Anantharajah ordered Monday the second suspect Ilango alias Regan, Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) Deputy Mayor of Jaffna, for alleged involvement in threatening Chaavakachcheari magistrate K. Pirabakaran, to be placed in Jaffna remand prison until 24 May, when he was arrested and produced in Jaffna magistrate court, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, ruling party Jaffna Mayor announced that all employees of Jaffna Municipal Council (JMC) are to abstain from duties Tuesday in protest against the arrest and detention of the Deputy Mayor, the sources added.

JMC Commissioner had sent an announcement of the above protest in the form of an advertisement to local dailies for publishing.

The dailies, however, said that the advertisement will not be published as it will amount to contempt of court.

The inquiry into the alleged complaint against death threat issued to Chaavakachcheari magistrate K. Pirabakaran was transferred from Chaavakachcheari court to Jaffna court as Regan was absconding in JMC area.

Earlier, on 02 May Chaavakachcheari police arrested the EPDP coordinator of Thenmaraadchi zone, Alexander Soosaimuththu alias Charles, for allegedly threatening Chaavakachcheari Magistrate K. Prabakaran for having issued arrest warrant on EPDP suspects involved in the abduction and murder of student Kapilnath.
