SriLanka immigration officials ‘investigate’ Canadian Tamil MP in Jaffna

Following the interrogation on Tuesday by the Sri Lankan Terrorist Investigation Department, who placed the visiting Eezham Tamil parliamentarian from Canada, Ms Rathika Sitsabaiesan, from 7:00 p.m. to midnight under an unofficial house-arrest, the immigration officials of occupying Colombo have subjected her for a second round of investigations Wednesday noon. As the Canadian MP was on a private visit to the island, the SL immigration officials would be carrying out an investigation to see whether she had violated the kind of visa utilized to her, the officers have told Wednesday. 

 In the meantime, the Sri Lankan military and the police establishment attempted to avoid focus on the ‘house arrest’ issue after the Canadian High Commission intervened Tuesday night.

Following a so-called mutual understanding of getting Sri Lankan immigration officials to investigate her further on alleged violation of ‘visitor visa’, the SL military and police were ‘withdrawn’ from Tilko hotel Tuesday night, but the MP was not available for communication, news sources in Jaffna said.
