Most of the families of the above detainees, being still held in Vanni detention centres, have no way of learning the fate of those abducted and arrested, the HRC Jaffna officials said.

Meanwhile, resettled Vanni IDPs in Jaffna continue to visit Jaffna HRC to find whether their sons or daughters are among the list of 800 youths in Boosa camp.

Less than 50 persons had been able to find their near and dear ones being held in Boosa camp.
