HRC to record Nelliady Police OIC's statement

[TamilNet, Friday, 07 February 2003, 18:52 GMT]
The Jaffna regional office of the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission (HRC) is to record the statement of the Officer-In-Charge (OIC) of the Nelliady Police regarding the clash that took place on December 10 last year where several Tamil civilians were injured, HRC sources said.

The clash took place when several hundreds of people conducted a picketing demanding that the members of the para military Eelam Peoples Democratic party (EPDP) should leave the peninsula, sources said.

The HRC has now decided to record the statement of Nelliady police OIC Mr Zoysa to verify whether the Police refused to take the injured civilians to hospital promptly on the day of incident, civil groups sources said.

Complaints were made to the head office of the HRC that, on the day of incident, the Nelliady Police had failed to take the injured to hospital.

The HRC has already recorded the statement of the Jaffna's Senior Superintendent of Police Mr.H.Premaratne, sources in Jaffna said.
