[TamilNet, Tuesday, 15 June 1999, 03:54 GMT]
The Survey Department officials handed over a survey report of the alleged Chemmani mass grave site to the Criminal Investigation Department yesterday. The survey of 16 hectares of land began last week and the exhumation is scheduled on Wednesday.
Meanwhile Missing Persons Guardian Association (MPGA) has planned to protest against their members not being allowed to be present at the site when the exhumation work is conducted.
The members will be dressed in white and will wear a black ribbon on Wednesday to protest, said the Organisation's secretary.
Sources in Jaffna said that security has been strengthened in the Jaffna peninsula.
Local experts, Human Rights Commission officials and observers from Amnesty International arrived yesterday in Jaffna for the exhumation.
