SLA bans transport of torch batteries to Muttur east

[TamilNet, Friday, 22 April 2005, 19:06 GMT]
Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Friday lodged a complaint with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Trincomalee that soldiers in the Kaddaiparichchan Sri Lanka Army are preventing people taking torch batteries to and from LTTE controlled Muttur east villages. Kaddaiparichchan SLA camp is located on the border of the SLA and LTTE controlled areas in the Muttur division, sources said.

Mr.Elilan made the complaint following representations from Muttur east residents.

Since the signing of the ceasefire agreement by the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the LTTE three years ago, Muttur east villagers are allowed to take with them torch light batteries and other items needed for their domestic purposes without any restriction.

However soldiers manning the check point at Kaddapaiparichchan since Wednesday are not allowing Muttur east residents to take torch batteries with other provision when they return from the army controlled areas.

SLA soldiers are not even allowing Muttur east villagers to take torch batteries to the army-controlled area through Kaddaiparichchan, LTTE sources said.
