SLA conducts search operation, youth seeks protection with HRC in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 11 September 2007, 16:28 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers conducted a combined cordon and search operation covering Point Pedro and Valveddiththu'rai areas in Vadamaraadchi from Tuesday early morning until evening, ordering young women and men to gather in the temples in their respective areas where they were subjected to thorough investigation, sources in Vadmaraadchi said. Meanwhile, a youth who escaped abduction during the search sought protection with Jaffna Human Rights Commission (HRC) Tuesday afternoon.

Details of any arrests are not known.

The youth who sought protection with the HRC is a twenty-four year old fisherman from Aathikoaiyaladi in Valveddiththu'rai who said in his complaint to HRC that he is seeking protection for his life due to death threats from SLA backed armed paramilitary men and SLA troopers.

Meanwhile, SLA launched heavy artillery fire on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam LTTE held areas in Thenmaraadchi and Vadamaraadchi Forward Defence Lines (FDL) Tuesday morning.

A heavy artillery duel followed when LTTE shells launched in retaliation fell and exploded near SLA bases in Usan and Mirusuvil.

Casualty details were not known.
