SL Army in Batticaloa singles out women for collection of information

[TamilNet, Sunday, 04 September 2011, 16:49 GMT]
The SL Army occupying Ka’luvaagnchikkudi in Batticaloa collects information of only women in the village and this has evoked fear in the village against the backdrop of SL Army-staged ‘grease devil’ attacks on women. Tamil National Alliance parliamentarian for Batticaloa district, Mr P Selvarasa, called upon the Colombo government to immediately stop the deployment of SL military in the collection of information on women in the divisions of the Batticaloa district. Ironically, the occupying military’s information drive started after the withdrawal of the emergency regulations.

Mr Selvarasa has also asked the Batticaloa district SL Government Agent to immediately stop SL Army dealing with the collection of information on women.

The civil officials of the district have not authorised any collection of information by the SL Army.
