Subject: Thank you! – Final Statement to be published – 117 Signatures
Dear All,
This is the final draft of the statement to be published shortly. We had to add an update on Mr. Salley’s health condition as it has deteriorated further due to his continued fast, and he has been hospitalized again as of yesterday. And we have also tried to incorporate the suggestions some of you have made. 
Thank you all for your courage and commitment to ensuring that justice is served. We’ll keep you updated on any future developments in the case. Thank you all once again.
Marisa

Public Statement
Condemn the Unlawful Arrest and Detention of Azath Salley and Call for his Immediate Release
We the undersigned, vehemently condemn the arrest and detention of Former Deputy Mayor and 
General Secretary of the National Unity Alliance (NUA), Azath Salley, by a team of officers from the 
Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and the Terrorism Investigation Department (TID), on Thursday, 
2 May 2013 morning, and call for his immediate release in the absence of any demonstrable evidence. 
Mr. Salley was arrested under the draconian Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) and he has been placed 
under detention for further interrogation by the CID for 3 months under Section 2(1)(h) of the PTA. 
Section 2(1)(h) states that a person who has committed an offence under the PTA “….by words either 
spoken or intended to be read or by signs or by visible representations or otherwise causes or intends to 
cause commission of acts of violence or religious, racial or communal disharmony or feelings of ill-will or 
hostility between different communities or racial or religious groups…”
The unlawful arrest and detention of Mr. Salley is in a context where there have been increasing attacks 
and threats against minorities, a growing spate of incidents of religious intolerance, and clamping down 
of critics of the Government and dissent on the whole. Mr. Salley has been a vocal critic of the extremist 
group Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) and the anti–Muslim activities of the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), and has 
been actively involved in efforts to initiate legal action against both groups. He has also promoted 
minorities to unite against the racist rhetoric and actions of such groups. In addition, Mr. Salley has been 
publicly critical of the indirect support given to these elements by the Secretary to the Ministry of 
Defence, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. 
On 24 April 2013, in an interview to the Tamil Nadu bi-weekly magazine “Junior Vikatan”, Mr. Salley is 
alleged to have said that “the Muslims too should launch an armed struggle against the state in the 
same manner in which Tamils conducted a campaign earlier…(and) that such a struggle would 
commence once necessary arms are procured.” Mr. Salley has later written to the magazine stating that 
he was misquoted. The magazine published a correction on 4 May 2013. 
Mr. Salley has been on a fast since his arrest on 2 May in protest against his unjust arrest, and 
demanding his release. Since his arrest, he has been moved from the 4th Floor of the CID to the National 
Hospital as he had collapsed due to lack of food, water and medication. There are concerns his condition 
can deteriorate if not urgently addressed, as he is a diabetic and in need of medication. He was initially 
refused visitors, including visits from his immediate family and lawyers, and was placed under heavy 
police guard. On 5 May, regardless of medical concerns, Mr. Salley had been moved back to the 4th Floor 
of the CID. 2
Mr. Salley’s had to be carried to the meeting room on the 4th Floor to meet with his lawyer yesterday 
(6). On seeing the deterioration in his condition, his lawyer had insisted that authorities re-hospitalize 
him immediately. 
We may not agree with all of Mr. Salley’s political positions, however we are deeply concerned with the 
treatment meted towards him which seems to be a result of his position against hate propaganda and 
opposition to extremist groups. Whilst we recognize the responsibility of the State to investigate hate 
speech and other actions aimed at inciting communal disharmony, we wish to highlight the lack of fair 
and due process on the part of the State in the unlawful arrest and detention of Mr. Salley. Given the 
context and the charges, it would seem that Mr. Salley’s charges are politically motivated.
We also note the speed with which the Government and State actors acted on the arrest of Mr. Salley 
based on a misquoted interview. This is in a context of an increasing number of instances of hate speech 
and violence in Sri Lanka, with evidence publicly available identifying the perpetrators. Unfortunately, 
such incidents have not been independently investigated and perpetrators brought to account. Sadly, 
this incident is yet another reminder that the Government has resorted to strong-arm tactics to silence 
and harass critics, while turning a blind eye when actual incidents of violence occur. It is of serious 
concern as to the reasons for this unlawful arrest and the detention of Mr. Salley, and it sends a chilling 
reminder to all critics of the Government of reprisals. 
We, the undersigned call for his immediate release.
