The Sri Lankan Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) detectives are continuing their arrests of Tamil youth including students in Jaffna over with Sri Lnakan Jaffna Army , Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe’s order. However, clergy, parents and academics complain that the exercise has spawned a fear psychosis amidst warnings that the Jaffna University may close down. According to Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran, at least forty Tamil youth have been arrested but not produced in courts. The arrests, he said, had been made under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).  ]]>
