Former LTTE cadre arrested in Wellawaya

A former LTTE cadre who had undergone the Sri Lankan government’s “rehabilitation” program was arrested on Monday, with no clear charges laid out against her.

The woman, reportedly a Mullaitivu resident, was arrested in Wellawaya, as Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena attended a ceremony in the region.

Three other people who were with her have also been detained by the police.

Officials have said the woman is now being questioned over the purpose of her visit to Wellawaya, but no further details on why she has been held have been released.
