Sri Lanka military intelligence harass workers fencing Thileepan memorial

Sri Lankan military intelligence officers harassed Jaffna Municipal Council workers who were putting up a barrier around the Thileepan memorial in Nallur, Jaffna on Tuesday.

The plain clothes military intelligence officers threatened the workers that they could be detained in future, forcing the workers to stop work and return to the Municipal Council office out of fear. They refused to go back.

The council was forced to hire private workers to complete the barrier.
