[TamilNet, Monday, 15 November 2010, 13:27 GMT]
Somawanse Amarasinghe, leader of Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), told media in Jaffna Monday that thousands of Tamil, Muslim and Sinhala youths are held in the secret camps operated by Sri Lanka government. “If Mahinda Rajapaksa considers himself as the head of a responsible government he must disclose the names of the youths detained in its secret detention centers,” he said immediately after the JVP-backed protest demonstration that was forcibly dispersed by Sri Lankan military operatives, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, another JVP key person Ramalingam Chandrasekaran said Sri Lanka police forcibly sent back more than 50 students of Rajarata University from the South who had come in hired buses to participate in the protest demonstration. The police had stopped them at Ariyaalai and took them to Elephant Pass and sent them back, Chandrasekaran said.

Somawanse Amarasinghe commenting on the Sunday attack on JVP group in Jaffna said that thugs operating with the antidemocratic Sri Lanka government had assaulted the JVP group.

Tilvin Silva, another JVP leader, said that the media in South had misreported the incident saying that unidentified men had attacked the public adding that the attack was carried out directly by Sri Lanka government.

The Rajarate University students expelled by the police from Jaffna are members of Inter University Student Union, Chandrasekaran said.
