The numbers of complaints in regard to missing persons in Jaffna have increased. During the month of March alone more than 50 such complaints have been made. 5 of these complaints are regarding those missing in the Jaffna town itself.

The police have accepted the fact that such complaints have been made, but refused to give any details of the number of such complaints made.

Complaints are also made regarding those who had gone missing during the war in 2006/ 2007. Such complaints are made now because there was no place to make these complaints during the above period.

Many of the complaints made are regarding those who had gone missing during the war but there are various practical difficulties in finding them, says the police spokesman Prashantha Jayakody.
