The JVP affiliated Socialist Youth Union (SYU) says it would compile a list of Tamil youth who have disappeared in the North and those who have been detained.
Head of the SYU Bimal Ratnayake told a press conference that the union would compile the list and release it to parliament shortly through the party’s parliamentarians.
The initial preparation work of the list has already commenced, he said.
Ratnayake said there were about 4,700 to 5,200 Tamil youth who are being detained in undisclosed locations.
He charged that it was the government’s responsibility to release them and help them commence a normal life.
