Political prisoner admitted to Vavuniyaa hospital

[TamilNet, Monday, 18 July 2011, 08:48 GMT]
One of the 42 Tamil political prisoners, 40-year-old Kattaiyan Logeswaran, currently on fasting unto death campaign in Vavuniyaa prison demanding their release was admitted to the Vavuniyaa general hospital Sunday as his condition was reported to be critical.

Mr Logeswaran is one of seven prisoners who launched the fast-unto-death campaign demanding their release or produce them in court. Later on Saturday other prisoners joined them in the hunger strike.

Meanwhile Vavuniyaa district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians Messrs Sivasakthi Aanandan and Vino Noharathalingam have sent an urgent message to SL President Mahinda Rajapakse by fax requesting him to take immediate steps to release all political prisoners in Vavuniyaa prison or to produce them in court.

The TNA parliamentarians also have asked Mr. Rajapakss to order his military and police establishment not to arrest those who had been released after detention by Sri Lankan military for 'rehabilitation'.
