Tamil lawyers decline to appear for EPDP key operatives in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 18 May 2010, 10:18 GMT]
A Sinhalese lawyer from South had to appear Monday in Jaffna magistrate court on behalf of the two Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) key operatives charged with issuing death threats to Chaavakachcheari magistrate as all lawyers in Jaffna peninsula refused to appear for the suspects.

The Sinhalese lawyer, K. P Chandralal, filed a petition requesting bail for Ilango alias Regan, the Deputy Mayor of Jaffna and Allexander Soosaimuthu alias Charles, EPDP organizer for Thenmaraadchi, arrested and detained in Jaffna prison for alleged activities aimed at issuing death threats to Magistrate Pirbakaran or in attempts to kill him.

Jaffna magistrate allowed bail with two government servants as sureties and on condition that the two suspects should report and sign in Jaffna magistrate court each Friday.

Suspect Charles, however, was not released as Chaavakachcheari magistrate court had ordered detention in remand prison for alleged involvement in the abduction and killing of a student in Chaavakacheari.
