Colombo finds new ways to extend detention of Tamil political prisoners

[TamilNet, Thursday, 31 December 2015, 20:39 GMT]
The Tamil prisoners, who are being indefinitely detained for several years in the prisons of occupying Colombo, are going to be subjected for prolonged proceedings once more under a new Colombo-based ‘special court’, legal sources in Jaffna said. There are cases where false confessions obtained under torture by the Sri Lankan ‘Terrorist’ Investigation Division (TID) have been already rejected by the district courts in the North and East. These prisoners were awaiting their cases to be dismissed. But, the judiciary of occupying Sri Lanka wants their cases to be addressed again in Colombo.

TMVP paramilitary group, operated by the SL military, abducted 44-year-old Jeevaratnam Kanagaratnam from Jaffna at Moraweva in Trincomalee in 2007. He was later handed over to the SL TID, which deployed torture to obtain a false confession from him.

Trincomalee High Court took Jeevaratnam’s case for investigation in 2012 and the court dismissed his confession in 2014.

Jeevaratnam, awaiting his release, was shocked to learn now that the ‘Special Court’ in Colombo was taking up his case for investigations once more.

The judiciary of genocidal Sri Lanka is inventing new ways to prolong the imprisonment of Tamil political prisoners, complain the prisoners who have been struggling for their freedom after the change of ruling personalities in Colombo in 2015.
