Suspected LTTE members, who were taken into Sri Lankan government’s arbitrary arrest in 2009 and released after 'rehabilitation', continue to be harassed by Sri Lanka’s intelligence services – the CID, reports Uthayan and TamilNet.
According to reports, 'rehabilitated' members have been identified by CID operatives, interrogated and even severely beaten.
Last week, in Nadangkandal, CID operatives on motorbikes stopped two 'rehabilitated' LTTE members, before taking him to a school were he was severely beaten, reports Uthayan.
The victims were warned against informing the media or human rights groups of the incident.
Documents issued by the International Organisation of Migration (IOM) and the ICRC - certifying their release from 'rehabilitation' - were forcibly confiscated by the intelligence operatives, reports TamilNet.
