Five more arrested in Jaffna for breach of curfew

[TamilNet, Monday, 29 January 2007, 16:43 GMT]
Sri Lanka Amy (SLA) troopers arrested two civilians from Gurunagar and three from other parts of Jaffna town within Jaffna Municipality Sunday night for violating curfew regulations, and handed them over to Jaffna police. The police produced the five arrested at the Jaffna court before District Magistrate R. T. Vignarajah who ordered them to be placed in Jaffna prison until February 9 and directed the police to conduct inquiry to find out whether they are connected to any criminal activity, legal sources in Jaffna said.

Seven persons were arrested Saturday night, following the directive of the chief Justice to Jaffna region SLA commander.

The chief justice (CJ) Sarath N Silva ordered Jaffna region Sri Lanka Army (SLA) commander on Saturday to strictly enforce the overnight curfew, as the CJ had received many complaints of murders, robberies, abduction and arrests during curfew hours.

Mr Silva also had instructed that anyone arrested for curfew violation to be produced before courts.
