EPDP leader identifies assailants

[TamilNet, Monday, 21 September 1998, 21:29 GMT]
Mr. Douglas Devananda, leader of the Eelam People Democratic Party (EPDP) pointed out six persons as his assailants at an identification parade today at the Kalutara magistrate court. The parade was held today in connection with the attack on him in the Kalutara maximum security prison on June 30.

Sixteen prisoners were brought from the Kalutara jail, and were mingled with hundred civilians in two batches.

The EPDP leader went through the first batch and identified two suspects and in the second batch identified four said a prison official.

One of the accused persons in the 1996 Sri Lanka Central Bank bomb blast who is being held in the Kalutara prison was also included in today's identification parade.

Meanwhile, the EPDP in the Pt.Pedro Pradheshiya Sabha announced this morning that intends to start talks with the Sri Lankan Army (SLA) about resettling displaced families in the now abandoned villages from Uduththurai to Chundikkulam on the south-eastern coast of the Jaffna peninsula.

Some of these were abandoned in 1991-2 following the battle for the SLA base at Elephant Pass, and others later in 1996 when the army expanded its presence further north on this coast.
