Several Tamil officials who had served in formerly LTTE-held areas in northern Sri Lanka were being meted out "shabby treatment" and one of them has been detained, a senior Tamil leader has claimed, seeking the intervention of the President in the matter.

"I wish to draw your attention to the shabby treatment given to public servants who served in LTTE-held areas. Not a single public servant served in Kilinochchi or Mullaitheevu on his choice," Tamil United Liberation Front President V Anandasangaree said in a letter to Rajapaksa.

"I am really shocked and surprised at the news of the arrest of Mr Nagalingam Vethanayagan, Government Agent of Kilinochchi," the TULF leader said.

Vethanayagan was taken in for questioning by the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) of Sri Lanka last Thursday in Vavuniya. He was later brought to Colombo for further questioning with regard to alleged administrative irregularities during the war, according to reports.
