Sri Lanka's Terrorism Investigation Department (TID) arrested yet another Tamil man who was returning from the Middle East on Tuesday, reports Ceylon News.
Muthulingam Jeyakanthan was returning from Doha last week, after travelling there to seek work in 2013. The father of two from Mullaitivu was arrested on his return to the island shortly after he landed at the Katunayake International Airport on April 12.
His lawyer Dominic Premanand told Ceylon News this was the second such arrest to have taken place in April alone.
“His family has not been given any document with regard to his arrest,” added Mr Premanand.
Tamils being deported from other countries or passing through Colombo airport frequently faced arrest in the past and have continued to do so, despite a change in government in Sri Lanka last year.
