Jeyakumary's plight continues

Human rights activist and campaigner for the families of the disappeared Balendran Jeyakumary continues to be required to attend court, despite her not knowing why she was arrested.

Campaigners who met with her recently said there were two cases ongoing against her and, as part of her bail condition, she is required to report to the police station in Kilinochchi once a month.

Ms Jeyakumary is forced to travel long distances from her home in Kilinochchi for her cases as one is being heard in Colombo and another one in Padaviya in the North Central Province.
