We Are Sri Lankan Calls For Release Of Detainees

Jun 15, 2011 9:43:00 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The organization We Are Sri Lankan has alleged that Tamil detainees are being harassed and called for the release of detainees who have not been charged.

We Are Sri Lankan organization has noted that if the government was looking at reconciliation, it was important to pay attention to the political prisoners and release those without any charges.

Executive Committee member of the organization, Udul Premaratne has said that Tamils arrested on suspicion of having links with the LTTE are being harassed by prison officials.

According to Premaratne, the government needed to release the detainees who have not been charged as it is an injustice to hold back individuals in detention without being charged.

He has added that the government has even failed to release the list of names of the Tamil detainees.
