British Tamil tortured in Sri Lanka

A British Eelam Tamil was detained and tortured by the Sri Lankan Criminal Investigation Department (CID) when he visited the island earlier this month.

Sivasubramaniam Jeevan, who lives in Scotland, was interrogated about diaspora activities while being beaten, electrocuted and threatened.

He told TamilNet that he is undergoing psychiatric treatment due to the trauma he sustained during his detention and that he was only released after bribing Sri Lankan officials.
