Sri Lanka: Fear of "disappearance"

, Index number: ASA 37/025/1999

Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of Seenithamby Sathasivam, Somanathan Panchchadcharam and S. Velautham. The men, reportedly arrested on 8 October 1999, have since "disappeared". Witnesses report that they were handed over to security forces' personnel, possibly the army, but the army denies they are in their custody.
