Whereabouts of 700 Tamil prisoners detained in Trincomalee questioned in SL Parliament

[TamilNet, Friday, 20 February 2015, 14:05 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran on Thursday questioned the SL Minister for Public Security at the Sri Lankan Parliament on the fate of 700 Tamils, who were alleged to have been kept in a detention camp inside the Trincomalee Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) complex under the past regime of Mahinda Rajapaksa. Around 35 families were also detained in that camp known as ‘Gota camp’ the TNA parliamentarian said.

The Public Security and Christian Affairs Minister John Ameratunge in his reply said he would be bringing these matters immediately to the notice of the Sri Lankan President Maithiripala Sirisena who is also holding the post of Minister of Security.

Mr Premachandran also demanded information on whether these detainees were subjected to inhuman treatment under the past regime, news sources in Colombo said.
