[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 January 2007, 19:43 GMT]
R.Jegatheswary, wife of Professor Sivasubramaniam Raveendranath, the Vice Chancellor of the Eastern University of Sri Lanka (EUSL), issued an appeal on Tuesday to the media seeking their help in obtaining the release of her husband abducted on Dec 15th in Colombo in High Security area in Bauddhaloka Mawatte.

In the appeal Mrs.Jegatheswary said: "We have with great pain of mind and body approached very high authorities with political powers to intervene in this matter and facilitate the release of his captivity. But, it is of no avail. There is ominous silence from all quarters. The police department is also not aware of his whereabouts."

Full text of the Press Release issued by Mrs.Jegatheswary Raveendranath follows:

TO:

16/01/2007
The Editors ,
Mass Media.
Dear Sir / Madam,

Vice Chancellor’s Abduction

Professor Sivasubramaniam Raveendranath, Vice Chancellor of Eastern University
I, the undersigned Mrs.R.Jegatheswary wife of Prof.S.Raveendranath (Vice Chancellor Eastern University) most humbly and earnestly write this appeal to you to state that my husband was abducted on 15/12/2006 after attending a forum on science at Colombo 7. Since then he is missing. Wide publicity has been given in all mass media regarding the abduction of my husband. But, no amount of mass media bashing, mirroring this in-humanitarian event seems helpful. It’s already a month now since his disappearance. We have with great pain of mind and body approached very high authorities with political powers to intervene in this matter and facilitate the release of his captivity. But, it is of no avail. There is ominous silence from all quarters. The police department is also not aware of his whereabouts.

It is our firm belief that my husband, as a Vice Chancellor or as a citizen of Sri Lanka has not knowingly done any wrong or offence to anyone. On the other hand he had only been devoting himself to uplift and ameliorate the education of the students at the Eastern University. This fact is very obvious upon the overwhelming support that still he has from the university students, the staff and his superior officers.

I, our children, and all his friends and relations are in anguish, not knowing what to do. How long can we bear up this heart­rending situation? The whole family is in bad shape.

I therefore, most humbly request you on humanitarian grounds to consider this humanitarian issue and help us by offering us your maximum help and effort to secure his release immediately.

Thanking you,
Yours truly,

Mrs.R.Jegatheswary
