Jaffna University Teachers' Union President summoned to Vavuniyaa

[TamilNet, Friday, 21 December 2012, 17:38 GMT]
Sri Lankan ‘Terrorist’ Investigation Department (TID) has placed a phone call to the head of Jaffna University Teachers Association (JUTA) Lecturer A Rajakumaran and summoned him to the notorious TID office in Vavuniyaa, informed circles at the University of Jaffna told TamilNet on Friday. The JUTA has been firm in defending the rights of the students and has extended support to the protest by the students. It has also held its own protests against the detention by the TID.

The TID from Vavuniyaa takes direct instructions from SL Defence Secretary and presidential sibling Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

Mr Rajakumaran is the head of the department of the English Language Teaching Centre at the University of Jaffna.

A caller from the TID has reportedly told Mr Rajakumaran that they needed to record statement from him regarding the incidents on 26 and 27 November, the sources further said.

Earlier, the TID has also been against the Bishop of Mannaar Rt. Rev. Dr. Rayappu Joseph, who had established that 146,679 people had gone unaccounted for in the Vanni by citing the statistics of the SL government itself.
