Civilian seeks protection with HRC Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 16 November 2007, 05:46 GMT]
A civilian from Madduvil north in Thenmaraadchi sought protection Thursday with Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna due to death threats from Sri Lanka Army and SLA- backed paramilitary men.

The civilian who sought protection is 27-year-old and a resident of Madduvil in Thenmaraadchi. Many civilians including youths, family men and families with children from Thenmaraadchi seeking protection with Jaffna HRC are already placed in the protective custody in Jaffna prison.

Meanwhile, the persons placed in the protective custody of Jaffna prison have submitted an appeal to Jaffna Magistrate through prison authorities to immediately attend to their acute need for basic facilities in Jaffna prison besides requesting authorities to take constructive and remedial decisions on their future.

The inmates have announced that they will engage in fasting protest and mass agitation if their appeal is not attended before 30 November.
