A TNA delegation would be granted access to the data base of Tamil detainees at the TID office in Vavuniya tomorrow to see verify facts for themselves, TNA MP M.A. Sumanthiran said today.
The government officials also would accompany the TNA delegation.
During talks between the two parties, it had been requested to give details of these detainees on behalf of family members and relatives. There was also allegation by the TNA that the government failed to live up to its promise in this regard.
“There are over 4000 detainees. Their kith and kin should be allowed to know the personal details of these persons. We will go there first and see for ourselves the details,” he said.
MP Sajin de Vaas Gunawardane will join the visit on behalf of the government. The TNA delegation will comprise MP Suresh Premachandran and Mr. Sumanthiran.
