SLA refuses to open key roads in Jaffna peninsula

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 August 2010, 05:22 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) occupying Jaffna peninsula continues to refuse to open the key roads which it had closed for public use despite repeated requests by governemnt departments, NGOs and public organizations, sources in Jaffna said. The same situation prevails in allowing uprooted families to settle in their properties appropriated by SLA as High Security Zone (HSZ) in Valikaamam North. It is alleged that the conflict of interests in these two matters between Northern Province Governor, Major. Gen. G. A. Chandarasiri and SLA Jaffna Commander, Major. Gen. Mahinda Kathurusinghe is the cause of the issues.

In the above context Sri Lanka government has called for a meeting Wednesday in the Palaali military head office in which Governor Chandrasiri and Commander Mahinda Kathurusinghe will participate.

Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) Northern high command as well as SLA key officers in Jaffna peninsula are also expected to attend the meeting.

Key roads in Veala'nai in the islets of Jaffna and Va'ra'ni in Thenmaraadchi and other roads in Jaffna peninsula are blocked by SLA causing undue difficulities for the public.
