Eastern High Court Judge, A.N. Ramachandran, last Tuesday ordered the six respondents to the Habeas Corpus petition filed by Jeyakili Pushparatha to file their objections before February 15, 2001, legal sources said. In her petition Pushparatha had asked the respondents to produce in court her husband Vairamuttu Jeyakilli of Salli, arrested by the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) personnel on February 24 this year.

The Officer-in-Charge of the SLN camp at Nilaveli, the SLN Commodore, the Headquarters Inspector of Police (Trincomalee), the Inspector General of Police, the Secretary of the Ministry of Defense and the Attorney General were the six repondents cited in the case.

When the case was taken up for inquiry at the Trincomalee session of the Eastern High Court, the Inspector General of Police, Headquarters Inspector of Police and the Secretary of Ministry of Defense were not represented in court.



Pushparatha Jeyakilli in her petition stated that on February 24, her husband along with two others, Navaretnam Mohanraj and Thiyagarajah Pathmaseelan had gone fishing in her husband's boat.The SLN personnel had arrested the three when they were engaged in fishing near Pigeon Island sea. The SLN had already handed over two to the Trincomalee Police. But her husband was still missing. When she inquired from the SLN and Police she was told that no such person had been arrested by them.
