SL Military intelligence alleged of attacking house of prominent Judge in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 July 2012, 23:33 GMT]
Unknown attackers, believed to be Sri Lankan military intelligence operatives, on Wednesday night attacked the house of Point Pedro District Judge Ms Srinithy Nandasekaran with coconut fruit buds (kurumpaddi) that are hard as stones, causing damage to the roof of her residence. The attack comes a day after the protest in Nelliyadi against the slaying of Tamil prisoner Nimalarooban. The SL Police had sought legal ban from the District Judge to the protest in advance. But the District Court judge, after hearing the arguments of the SL police as well as that of the organisers, the Tamil National Peoples' Front (TNPF), had declined to ban the protest. Instead, she instructed the SL police to provide necessary security to the protest.

In 2009, Ms. Srinithy Nandaseakaran was recognised as South Asia Regional Finalist for the US Secretary of State's ‘Women of Courage’ award.

Her house is located 300 meters from Nelliyadi Junction near Murukamoorthy Temple.

The attackers fled the site when the family of the Judge turned the lights one, she has told the SL Police in her complaint on Thursday.

A day before the protest, alleged SL military intelligence operated squads, attacked the houses of TNPF organisers in Vadamaraadchi.

On Wednesday, the SL military attempted to block the outside participants at the two entry points to Vadamaraadchi and warned them saying that ‘firing orders’ had been given to SL soldiers at Nelliyadi to quell the protest.

However, the protest went ahead as scheduled and received participation of the Tamil National Alliance, Democratic Peoples Front, United Socialist Party and Nava Sama Samaja Party.

While the protest was taking place, the SL military intelligence had dispatched four masked operatives in two motorbikes with Tamil Eelam Tiger flags in an attempt to incite trouble at the site of the protest.

The intelligence operatives had to escape from being caught by the protesters.
