4 youths seek protection at HRC Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 July 2007, 09:03 GMT]
Four Tamil youths, including two from Viyapaarimoolai in Point Pedro, have sought protection within last week at the Human Rights Commission (HRC) Jaffna office out of fear to their lives from Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and SLA-backed paramilitaries, Jaffna sources said. The youths were produced before the Jaffna District Magistrate and placed in protective custody in Jaffna prison.

Out of more than hundreds of persons who sought protection with HRC and given shelter at the Jaffna Prison, some have returned home with the permission of the Courts due to lack of space at the prison.

However, several youths who left the prison on their own will have sought to reenter the protective custody af after the recent killing of two youths in Jaffna district.

The numbers seeking protective custody are again, HRC officials said.
