SLA extends curfew hours, restricts use of motorbikes in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 11 January 2007, 20:37 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) announced over its Palaly based radio Thursday that the 9:00 p.m to 4:00 am curfew in Jaffna peninsula was extended two hours from 7:00 p.m to 4:00 a.m with effect from Thursday night. Meanwhile, the SLA high command in Jaffna banned the use of all lightweight motor cycles in Jaffna peninsula from Wednesday, sources from Jaffna said.

Hundreds of 50 cc motorcycles confiscated by the SLA are held in the various SLA camps in Jaffna peninsula.

The owners of the motorcycles who wish to continue to use them, have to register their particulars at the nearest SLA camp, the SLA said.

As a result, owners of the lightweight motorcycles in their thousands are seen waiting near the SLA camps in the peninsula to have their particulars registered.

SLA fears that the light motorcycles, mostly used by women, can be used by armed persons to attack them.
