New regime deploys military against Habeas Corpus applicants: NPC Councillor

[TamilNet, Friday, 10 April 2015, 21:19 GMT]
The Sri Lankan military intelligence has stepped up harassments against the applicants of Habeas Corpus cases being heard in Vanni, says Northern Provincial Councillor Ananthy Sasitharan, who has been harassed twice by the operatives of the Sri Lankan military intelligence when she went to witnesses the cases being heard. Under the previous regime of Mahinda Rajapaksa, the SL courts were not prepared to hear these cases. The new regime, on one hand, wants to showcase to the outside world that the SL courts are attending these cases, but on the other hand it deploys the military intelligence against the applicants. “I have personally witnessed such harassment in recent days,” Ms Ananthy told media in Jaffna this week.

“I was personally targeted and harassed by SL military intelligence operatives when I visited the court to witness two women applicants. Imagine the prevailing psychological pressure on average Tamil women in Vanni when people like me having media attention are being openly confronted by the SL military intelligence outfits,” Ms Ananthty Sasitharan said.

SL military intelligence has deployed a section of former LTTE members who have been converted as military intelligence operatives from the so-called Civil Security Department (CSD) to stage protest against NPC Councillor Ananthy Sasitharan.

“This is why the people in the North-East have no trust in domestic mechanisms. This is why we demand independent international investigations,” Ms Ananthy told media.
