SL intelligence steps up harassment on Tamils in Colombo

[TamilNet, Thursday, 12 July 2012, 23:50 GMT]
Officers claiming to be from the Sri Lankan Defence department, but carrying ID cards issued by SL Police Department, have been visiting selected houses in Kirulappane and Dehiwale suburbs of Colombo this week demanding new registration of household members, sources in Colombo said.

While the details of household members were registered already by the police officials and the GS officials of the given areas, a three-member team, carrying ID documents issued from the SL police headquarters in Colombo as CID officers, have been visiting selected houses without informing the local police.

When residents in Kirulappane area contacted the local police, the police in Kirulappane was not aware of any new registration project in the area.

However, the visiting team, when confronted by the residents documented that they were on a mission to register details of those who reside in the houses on the instruction of SL Defence Ministry. They were registering details of those who had come recently from North and East to Colombo's suburbs, the sources said.
