Irish Tamil citizen files HC application in SL Court

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 31 October 2007, 09:30 GMT]
A Habeas Corpus application has been filed in the Sri Lanka's Court of Appeal seeking the release of a Sri Lankan Tamil who is currently a citizen of Ireland and a resident of Singapore. The Terrorist Intelligence Division (TID) of the Sri Lanka Police arrested Mr.Gunasundaram Jayasundaram on September 4 this year at Katunayake International Airport (KIA) when he arrived from Singapore on a business trip to Colombo. Since then he is being detained in the remand on the orders of the Defence Ministry Secretary.

Senior Counsel Mr.Appapillai Vinayagamoorthy filed the HC application on behalf of the petitioner Monday. Director of the TID, Inspector General of Police, Defence Ministry Secretary and Attorney General have been cited respondents in the petition, legal sources said.

The applicant has begged that the court should order his release immediately as his arrest and detention without any reason is considered illegal and violating his fundamental rights or to produce him in courts.
