Open Letter to the Government on the Recent Arrests and Detentions – 4th December 2007

Open Letter to the Government on the Recent Arrests and Detentions – 4th December 2007. The letter notes:

As civil society organizations committed to uphold the equality and dignity of all Sri Lankans, we are deeply concerned about the mass arrests and detentions of Tamils in the first three days of December 2007. The most recent figures available to us for this three day period show that over two thousand people have been arrested and detained.??

Centre for Policy Alternatives

The Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) was formed in 1996 in the firm belief that there is an urgent need to strengthen institution- and capacity-building for good governance and conflict transformation in Sri Lanka and that non-partisan civil society groups have an important and constructive contribution to make to this process. Focusing primarily on issues of governance and conflict resolution, CPA is committed to programmes of research and advocacy through which public policy is critiqued, alternatives identified and disseminated.
