[TamilNet, Saturday, 12 April 2014, 14:38 GMT]
The occupying Sri Lankan military intelligence operatives have detained 3 Eezham Tamils from Batticaloa district in recent days. A couple and their kids living in Vavuniyaa were detained by the so-called Terrorist Investigation Division, interrogated at Vavuniyaa TID office and later transferred to Boossa detention in Colombo. The arrest was made in Vavuniyaa on 06 April. Both, the husband and wife were former LTTE members in Batticaloa who had left the movement before the defection of Karuna. They were arrested in Vavuniyaa where they were employed. Their three children have been handed over to the grand parents in Aayithiya-malai, news sources in Batticaloa said.

Those who detained in Vavuniyaa were identified as 41-year-old Loganathan Veerakuddi from Aayiththiya-malai and 30-year-old Maheswari Krishnapillai from Chanthi-ve’li.

A 36-year-old civilian, Ravichandran Krishnapillai, who was earlier arrested by the Sri Lankan military in 2001 and released in 2004 was again arrested in Chanthi-ve’li on 06 April.

All former LTTE members living in Kokkaddichchoalai were forced to attend a meeting by the SL military on 08 April.

“Do not accept the opinion of the Tamil Diaspora. The white people are trying to arm you through the Tamil diaspora to wage another war. Don’t succumb to their agenda,” was a message repeatedly delivered at the meeting by the paramilitary and military intelligence operatives, according to those who were forced to attend the meeting.
