Sri Lanka's Genocidal War - '95 to '01
"In a letter to the President of the Norwegian Parliament, Kirsti Kolle Grondahl who led a parliamentary delegation to Sri Lanka in March, says that around 1,650 Tamils are in detention without trial. Many suffer torture in custody. Tamils are arrested at the airport under the Immigrants and Emigrants (Amendment) Act 42 of 1998, which disallows bail, provides for mandatory sentence and removes discretion of courts against the concept of a fair trial." ( British Refugee Council publication Sri Lanka Monitor, March 1999)
