In the meantime it was earlier reported that a team of seven NCPA officials entered the LTTE controlled area on 10 September accompanied with two Catholic Fathers arranged and sent by Bishop of Mannar to arrest a foreigner accused of child abuse.

Yesterday, the case against the three policemen was one more time taken up in the LTTE’s district court in Kilinochchi..

The three policemen along with others entered the LTTE controlled area accompanied by the two catholic priests were arrested at Arrippu in the Mannar area when they crossed into the area supposed to be controlled by the LTTE on 10 September.

The prosecuting LTTE’s Inspector told their District Judge Sathana that according to their investigations, evidence are emerging that the accused entered the LTTE controlled area for purposes other than trying to arrest a child molester as was earlier claimed by the defendants.
