Army searches Punguduthivu hospital

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 20 July 2005, 19:03 GMT]
LTTE Jaffna district political secretariat Wednesday complained to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Jaffna that soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army had forcibly entered the Thileepan memorial hospital in Pungudutivu on Monday and conducted a search operation. Soldiers surrounded the hospital stopping people from going out of the premises before moving in, sources said.

Soldiers also intimidated hospital workers when they protested to the search operation without the presence of the Police, sources said.

LTTE Pungudutivu political head immediately brought this incident to the Jaffna district political secretariat, sources said.

Thileepan memorial hospital is serving the residents of Pungudutivu, as the government medical institution there has become defunct, sources said.
