Arrested for collecting nests

DM / 26MAY2005

A member of the Vedda community was recently taken into custody by Wildlife officers in Ampara on the charge of collecting swallow nests in the National Park at Gal oya.

Two other suspects had fled with their muzzle loader guns during the raid. Officer In Charge of the national park, Hewage Gamini Wickremetilleke told Daily Mirror, that the suspects had sold swallow nests for Rs.6000 a kilogram to a businessman at Ratugala, who in turn sold them to another businessman in Bibile, for Rs.10,000 each.

He said that legal action would be taken against the suspect under Fauna and Flora Ordinance and also obtain arrest warrants to take other two suspects into custody.
