NGOs come to the road

NGOs,Political leaders,  CSO leaders, and Religious leaders who gathered at Fort railway station 22 th of July , vowed not to respect the NGO circular of the NGO secretariat dated 1st July. 
The protectors accused the circular is beyond the mandate of the NGO secretariat and serious violation of fundamental rights.
This is clearly an indication of violation of the right to freedom of expression and right to information. There were around 400 people, religious leaders, NGO and CSO activists gathered and protested at fort. At the end of the protest the NGO leaders burnt the NGO secretariat circular and indicated we will not respect it.

Prominent Human Rights Activists Ruki Fernando and Father Praveen detained in Killinochchi

Colleagues and 
At around 10.05 pm tonight, several of his friends and colleagues received a text message from prominent Human Rights Activist,  Ruki and Father Praveen have been detained at the killnochchi police station, apparently on suspicion of a shooting.  Later, Ruki informed a colleague via text, that he and father Praveen were being questioned separately. 
A lawyer who called the Killinochchi police station, was informed that no such persons were arrested by the Killinochchi police or being held at the police station. However the police said that two persons had been arrested by a specially appointed unit of the TID and were being held at a separate location in Killinochchi. 
Another lawyer who spoke to the OIC Killinochchi was informed that Ruki and Praveen were being questioned and a decision regarding their continued detention would be made in the morning. This directly contradicts the version in the para above. 
We don't know the details of arrest or the facts leading up to it. We are very concerned for their safety.
