Arduous journey for Vadamaradchi travelers

[TamilNet, Friday, 27 March 1998, 23:59 GMT]
More than 150 civilians from Vadamaradchi east were detained from 10 a.m. in the morning yesterday at the Vallipuram check point by the Sri Lankan army. The civilians were permitted to leave last night around 9 p.m.

The army, however, had prohibited them from taking the provisions they had brought along with them.

People had come in the morning to take their goods but the army had stopped them from entering Vallipuram until 10 a.m. this morning.

Vadamaradchi east is not under the control of the army and civilians living here have to pass through the SLA check point at Vallipuram, as all other entry points to the area are sealed by a six foot high bulwark built by the army with sand, mud and debris of buildings destroyed by the war.

The army has increased pressure on Vadamaradchi east by banning or limiting the supply of many essential items to this region.
