Former Tamil cadre arrested by Sri Lanka's TID

A former Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam cadre was arrested by Sri Lanka’s infamous Terrorist Investigation Department.

Locals that witnessed the arrest said he was taken to a Terrorism Prevention camp in Vavuniya.

The TID is widely known for its documented routine torture of detainees in Sri Lanka.

The Cadre, Damotharan Jayakanth, was arrested under the pretence of not having undergone Sri Lanka’s rehabilitation programme.

Numerous reports of torture in Sri Lanka’s rehabilitation centres have emerged since the end of armed conflict between Sri Lanka’s government and the LTTE.
