Mar 19, Colombo: The two human right activists detained by the Terrorism Investigation Division of Sri Lanka police have been released.
Police Media spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said Mr. Ruki Fernando and Rev. Father Praveen, arrested by the TID on Sunday, were released late Tuesday night.
The two activists were arrested in Kilinochchi by the TID on March 16 and detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) for questioning to ascertain the whereabouts of an LTTE suspect who shot a police officer in Kilinochchi and escaped.
The arrests sparked an outcry from human right organizations and the US, UK, and Canada.
Sri Lanka however, said the actions taken by the law enforcement authorities were well within the existing legal framework and followed the due process.
