Blockade to LTTE held areas in Trinco - MP complains

[TamilNet, Monday, 15 August 2005, 07:17 GMT]
Security forces are still enforcing the ban on the movement of people and vehicles to and from the LTTE controlled areas in Muttur east division and Eachchilampathu division in the Trincomalee district causing untold suffering since Saturday morning, said Mr.K.Thurairatnasingham, Trincomalee district parliamentarian in a letter to Sri Lanka's President Ms Chandrika Kumaratunga.

"I am told by higher officials of the army and the police in Trincomalee district that the exit and entry points to LTTE held areas are closed down on the orders of higher authorities in Colombo. Since Saturday morning people in the LTTE held areas are not allowed to enter government controlled areas. Even buses are not allowed to these areas," said Mr.Thurairatnasingham in his urgent complaint faxed to Ms Chandrika Kumaratunge.

Residents of Muttur east division and Eachchilampathu division have access to government-controlled areas through army checkpoints located at Kaddaiparichchan, Mahindapura and Thoppur. Since the killing of Mr.Kadirgamar, Foreign Minister in Colombo last Friday midnight all these exit and entry points are closed down. Even sick are not allowed to enter government-controlled areas for treatment in government hospitals, Mr.Thurairatnasingham pointed out.
