The office of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Vavuniya will start functioning from Monday, 1 April, at an office that has been established at Vairavar road in Vairavapuliyankulam, said the Government Agent for Vavuniya Mr.S.Ganesh.

He said members of the Mission Saturday visited Vavuniya and inspected the office.

Meanwhile eight members of the Liberation Tigers' political wing are expected to arrive in Vavuniya on Monday to begin work in the northern town, in accordance with the cease-fire agreement signed by the Sri Lanka Government and the LTTE.

The eight-member team was expected to visit Vavuniya on Friday, but the visit was postponed till the SLMM begin functioning, government officials in Vavuniya said.

The LTTE team will be welcomed by the public at Omanthai, and will be taken in a procession to Vavuniya town hall. A ceremony has been organised by students, businessmen, and several non-governmental organisations to welcome the LTTE members, sources in Vavuniya said.

The LTTE members are expected to address a meeting at the town hall ground explaining the current political situation, the sources said.
