TPPs refuse to accept Government’s Rehabilitation off in Vavuniya Courts

When the Vavuniya Judge said to 5 Tamil Political Prisoners (TPPs) whose case came before him, that the Government had offered to release them with 1 month imprisonment and 1 year of rehabilitation and asked them whether they accept the offer, all five TPPs refused to accept the offer pointing out the 1 year period of rehabilitation and that they are in prison for years.

Following their refusal their case is fixed for trial.

Attorney at Law Anton Punithanayagam who appeared for the TPPs with Attorney at Law Kugaraj commented that he sees the act of Attorney General Department as an eye wash.
