SLA establishes another HSZ in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 16 November 2009, 05:28 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities in Jaffna informed the Fisheries Societies of the areas near Jaffna Lagoon that fishing will not be permitted in Kearatheevu, Changuppiddi areas including Poonakari, Fisheries society representatives said. People have not been permitted to enter these areas where SLA had sown numerous mines, for the last three years. The boats of the fishermen fishing in these areas will be confiscated and legal action will be taken on them, the SLA directive to the fishermen societies said.

Many fishermen in Ma’ravanpula and Koakilaakka’ndi attempt to fish in these areas where they had been fishing freely before SLA occupation.

The seas near Kaangkeasanththu’rai and other places near it had already been converted into HSZs by the SLA and now this new HSZ has been created robbing the fishermen of their living, the fishermen society representatives said.
