UN complains after official threatened at gunpoint by Sri Lankan army in Jaffna

Senior United Nations officials have reportedly lodged a complaint with Sri Lankan authorities stating that one of their staff was threatened at gun point by two members of the army in Jaffna last year.

The Sunday Times reports that two people who claimed to be from the army entered the residence of a UN official in Jaffna, pointing a pistol at the staff member and warning that an investigation was underway against them.

The military has not taken any action on the case, denying that any members of the security forces were involved in the incident.
