SLA impedes INGOs work in Eastern Province

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 July 2010, 05:50 GMT]
International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGO) sources say that their work is being hampered due to the interference by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA). INGOs have been instructed by the SLA not to use stickers. INGOs use these stickers to identify their institutions to the SLA and other armed groups, sources in Batticaloa said.

INGOs travelling to Paduvaankarai via Ka’ruththappaalam in Earaavoor police division have been informed about the latest instruction.

INGOs have been using the stickers usually to provide medicine to affected people and to exchange messages from the detained persons to their relatives and for other services performed by the INGOs in the eastern province.

SLA has instructed INGOS travelling via Ka’ruththappaalam that they should not use the sticker as normalcy has returned and if they want to use the sticker they should get prior permission from the Defence Ministry.
