Sri Lankan Navy arrests coconut sellers in Neduntheevu

In another act of intimidation the Sri Lankan Navy (SLN) which occupies the island of Neduntheeve (Delft) off the Jaffna peninsula, has arrested three youth selling coconut in the area.

Neduntheevu saw tensions reach boiling point over the weekend, when the SLN opened fire and arrested seven civilians for preparing to celebrate National Heroes’ day on 27 November.

Parents of the arrested youth have lodged a complaint with the Human Rights Commission in Jaffna.
