Free to serve Sri Lanka, not free to go home

Parents of the 1800 alleged LTTE members, detained without charge by the Sri Lankan government and supposedly released last Friday, have informed BBC Tamil service, that they are yet to be united with their loved ones.

According to the report, none of the 1800 detainees have been given permission by Sri Lankan authorities to go back to their parent's homes.

The supposed release of the 1800 detainees was marked with much pomp and ceremony. The event was attended by ambassadors from the US, India, UK and Australia.
