SLA provides protection to Chaavakachcheari court

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 04 May 2010, 14:16 GMT]
In the wake of alleged death threats to Chaavakachcheari magistrate K. Pirabakaran by Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) operatives, Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Jaffna Commander, Major Gen. Mahintha Kathurusinghe, has provided military protection to Chaavakachcheari courts in addition to police protection from Tuesday. The Commander said that he has also arranged for military protection to Pirabakaran’s vehicle when he travels from Jaffna to Chaavakachcheari and back. Meanwhile, another suspect in the above case, Regan, Deputy Mayor of Jaffna, a key operative of EPDP, has gone into hiding following his associate Charles, EPDP Thenmaraadchi organizer, being arrested and detained in Jaffna prison, sources in Jaffna said.

EPDP leadership is suspected of making arrangements to send suspect Regan out of the country under cover, Jaffna residents said.

EPDP organizer of the islets of Jaffna, Napoleon, who was a prime suspect in the assassination of journalist Nirmalarajan in 2000, had been sent by EPDP leadership to India and from there to London where he had sought asylum, they added.

SLA soldiers are posted in the premises of Chaavakachcheari court in addition to police protection.
