[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 February 1998, 23:59 GMT]
Top brass of the Sri Lankan army (SLA) have warned Tamil groups which hold power in the Jaffna Municipal Council (JMC) that only one branch office will be allowed to function in the JMC area and anything in excess of one will forced to close, said sources in Jaffna.
Meanwhile, the SLA has advised political parties which are extorting money to refrain from doing so.
It is believed that this 'advice' comes in the wake of complaints by the public that some 'political parties' are extorting money in Jaffna town, said sources.
