Token Strike in Jaffna and Vavuniya

The house of Dr. Nadarajah Jeyakumaran (Consultant Oncologist) at Teaching Hospital – Jaffna was attacked by an unidentified gang at 1.00am on 14/06/2012.

Earlier the GMOA Branch Union of TH-Jaffna had made a police complaint against the corruption and stealing of government property by the administration of the hospital and the Branch Union is of the opinion that the people who are responsible for the corruption are behind this attack.

The demands of the TUA are:

  1. To have an impartial inquiry into the attack and about the corruption of hospital administration.
  2. To take the people responsible for the attack into custody and produce before the court.
