Former LTTE cadres summoned by Rehabilitation Ministry as arrests continue

Sri Lanka's rehabilitation ministry has ordered former LTTE cadres to present themselves to Colombo on April 30th.

The former cadres received no information on what the purpose of the summons is or the location of the meeting. They have been instructed to gather in the city and await details regarding the precise location.

The summons has caused many of the cadres to express fear over their safety.

The order came as four former LTTE cadres, including senior commanders were abducted and detained by the Terrorism Investigation Division in the space of one week.

The detained include the former head of the LTTE's Trincomalee intelligence wing Thalaiarasan, the former LTTE commander, Kanathippillai Sivamoorthy (known as Nagulan), the LTTE cadre Damotharan Jayakanth and the former LTTE commander, Ram.
