SLN bans fishing in Chullipuram Sea

[TamilNet, Saturday, 02 July 2005, 01:27 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) refused permission to about twenty fisher families in Chullipuram village in Jaffna district to fish in the sea along their village coast. The families have lodged a complaint with the regional office of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) and the Jaffna district Sea Tigers political secretariat that their livelihood has been seriously affected by the SLN ban, sources said.

Meanwhile, Mr.Rohitha Priyatharsana, new regional co-ordinator of the HRCSL Friday visited Chullipuram village and held discussion with the SLN officials stationed in the area, sources said.

Fisher families said in their complaint that fishing in Chullipuram Sea was slowly returning to normalcy after the Tsunami. "We requested the SLN officials several times to issue passes to allow us to fish but the SLN has refused citing security reasons," according to the complaint by affected fishermen.
