Wife appeals for husband's release in Mannar explosives case

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 16 August 2005, 11:34 GMT]
Ms Sahayanathan Sutharjany, a mother of three children from Mannar suburb Keeri, Tuesday made a written appeal to the Mannar Citizens' Committee to help obtain release of her husband Mr.Thangiah Sahayanathan, the three-wheeler driver who with six others are in remand for allegedly transporting a consignment of claymore mines and other explosives into the government controlled territory, sources said.

Mr. Sahayanathan was arrested on July 17 with four others when a consignment of explosives was being loaded in a three-wheeler at Konthaipiddy landing site in Mannar shore. Later on further information the Police arrested two more persons including a woman in regard to the alleged offence and are now kept in remand in Anuradhapura prison, sources said

Ms Sutharjany in her appeal said her husband was not the owner of the three-wheeler, which was involved in the incident but a driver being paid 250 rupees per day. He did not have any connection with the alleged offence, she said in her letter.

Since the arrest of her husband she and her three children aged 14,10 and 07 are undergoing untold suffering without any income in running their day to day life. "Hence we appeal to the committee to intervene on humanitarian ground to get the release of her husband. As her husband is now kept in remand at Anuradhapura prison I am unable to visit him due to several difficulties," said Ms Sutharjany in her appeal.
