[TamilNet, Thursday, 07 May 2009, 16:43 GMT]
An officer attached to Kodikaamam Agriculture Department is reported missing since 30 April while returning home from Nalloor in Jaffna, according to complaints registered with Jaffna Human Rights Commission (HRC) office. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Jaffna continues to announce over loud speakers that all Vanni civilians not staying in the SLA detention centres should surrender themselves before 31 May and that the failure to do so will have serious consequences, sources in Jaffna said.

The officer reported missing is Rajaratnam Murugamoorthy, 35, a resident of Koappaay South in Jaffna.

He had been seen coming from Nalloor around 5:00 p.m on the day he went missing, his wife said in her complaint.

Large scale cordon and searches in Jaffna peninsula have been reduced in number as most of the troops have been sent to Vanni battle front and hence the SLA announcement and warning, the sources added.
