[TamilNet, Monday, 03 May 2010, 10:11 GMT]
Sri Lanka Military Intelligence wing men in Jaffna Monday issued death threats to the journalists who covered the case of alleged death threats to Chaavakachcheari Magistrate K. Pirabakaran by EPDP operatives when it was taken for inquiry Monday in Chaavakachcheari court and published news of it in the local dailies, sources in Chaavakachcheari said. The intelligence men had first gone to the offices of the dailies that had published the news and procured the addresses of the said journalists in Thenmaraadchi before going to their houses, the sources added.

Jaffna Deputy Mayor Thurairajah Ilango alias Regan and Allexander Soosaimuthu alias Charles, Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) organizer for Thenmaraadchi were the two men who were mentioned in the complaint made by the Paa’ndiayn Thaazhvu residents to Chaavakachcheari court.

As the threatened journalists fear for their lives various public organizations in Jaffna peninsula have appealed to North Ceylon Journalists Association to take prompt action against the threats issued to the journalists.

Meanwhile, Chaavakachcheari magistrate K. Pirabakaran Monday had ordered suspect EPDP coordinator of Thenmaraadchi, Allexander Soosaimuthu alias Charles arrested for suspected involvement in the abduction and killing of student Kapilnath and for allegedly threatening Chaavakachcheari magistrate K. Pirabakaran, to be placed in remand prison, when he was produced in Chaavakachcheari court.
