* Sri Lanka Tamil party leader to make a special statement in parliament on arrests
Sun, Feb 17, 2013, 11:23 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 17, Colombo: Leader of Sri Lanka's major Tamil constituent Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is scheduled to make a special statement regarding the alleged arresting of people in north and east on political grounds, TNA sources said.

The TNA leader R. Sampanthan will make this statement on Tuesday, TNA spokesman MP S. Yogeshwaran said.

A TNA spokesman said that they had received complaints from the family members of three rehabilitated cadres of the former rebel group Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in Batticaloa that they have been arrested by the police again.

A wife of one of the arrested former cadre of the LTTE naval wing Sea Tigers said that a group of civil clad persons came to her house and asked her husband to report to Kadiraveli police station in the Eastern Province.

Once the man had gone to the police station, he was arrested and sent to the detention camp in Boossa. The family of the arrested person has been given by police a receipt on the arrest under emergency regulations and/or Prevention of Terrorism Act.

The authorities say some of the released cadres are getting involved in subversive activities and crimes again.
