Hunger-striking political prisoner transferred to Colombo prison

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 09 December 2015, 20:47 GMT]
The police officials of occupying Sri Lanka have hurriedly transferred the Tamil political prisoner, Jeneevan Sivarasa, from Jaffna prison to Colombo prison on Wednesday following instructions from SL Attorney General's Department, informed sources told TamilNet. The sudden transfer, against his will, comes following a failed attempt to convince the 36-year-old prisoner to abandon his fast-unto-death campaign through false verbal promises. 36-year-old Jeneevan from Achchuveali, Jaffna, began fast-unto-death campaign at Jaffna prison since Monday.

The SL police has lodged three cases against Mr Sivarasa and two of these were fabricated cases of conspiracy to assassinate SLFP politician Maithiripala Sirisena in 2006. Mr Sirisena is the incumbent SL President.

A Police ASP, who had fabricated documents as statement of confession by Mr Jeneevan, has been avoiding to present himself for hearings that have been scheduled several times at Jaffna High Court throughout the last 6 years.

The fast-unto-death campaign by Jeneevan Sivarasa has raised serious questions on the conduct by the SL High Court in Jaffna that has been indefinitely postponing the trial citing the absence of the police ASP.
