SLA restricts civilian visit to Point Pedro schools in HSZ

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 27 August 2003, 15:59 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army Wednesday said civilians would be allowed to visit Hartley College and Methodist Girls High School in the high security zone of Point Pedro town in Jaffna district only on Wednesdays and they will need prior permission obtained from the security forces, civil sources said.

Meanwhile, the Point Pedro Public Health Inspector was refused permission by the SLA soldiers manning the checkpoint at the College Road junction Wednesday morning when he was on his way to one of the schools in the high security zone for his official work. He was in his official uniform at that time and the matter was promptly brought to the notice of the Point Pedro divisional secretariat, a health sector official said.

The SLA has, meantime, issued instructions to education authorities that the members of the school development society could visit their school only with a recommendation letter of the respective principal, civil sources said.
