PLOTE condemns planned deportation

[TamilNet, Monday, 19 January 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The PLOTE issued a statement this weekend in Jaffna strongly opposing the deportation of Suresh manickavasagam to Sri Lanka from Canada.

The PLOTE statement says that it is not reasonable that Canada, which is aware that the Sri Lankan government is yet unable to give its final word on the issue of the 600 persons who went missing in Jaffna and that Tamils are arrested indiscriminately in large numbers in the south (of Sri Lanka), should deport Suresh.
