Jaffna district Head of LTTE Political Wing, C.Ilamparithi, has complained to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) that harassment and intimidation by soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) at Muhamalai check point on civilians is on the increase. He requested the SLMM to take immediate steps to stop this trend, sources said.

Mr.Ilamparithi met with Mr.Hagrup Haukland, the acting head of the SLMM, when he visited to Jaffna recently.

Mr.Haukland met with Major General Sunil Tennekoon, Jaffna area commander of the Sri Lanka Army Wednesday and obtained the army version regarding the ground situation in the peninsula, sources said.

Mr.Haukland met with Mr.Ilamparithi Thursday and discussed in detail the recent incidents involving SLA soldiers and the civilians following the death of a student in an accident involving an army vehicle and an elderly civilian in army shooting, sources said.
