42 People Surrender at Jaffna Human Rights Commission

42 people have surrended at the Human Rights Commission Jaffna office so far. They were facing death threats. HRC officials produced them before Jaffna Magistrate and the Magistrate ordered that they be sent to prison for their saftey. Some of them said that escaped while gunmen tried to kidnap them, while others gave statements that they escaped while gunmen tried to shoot them.

From what I am told by people here, Military Intelligence, LTTE, Para Military are involved but most of them are threatened by MI or Para Military (white van people)
