[TamilNet, Saturday, 22 May 2004, 18:23 GMT]
People's Action for Free and Fair Election (PAFFREL), a Colombo based election monitoring group said it plans to start citizens committees in Jaffna-Manipay, Pt. Pedro-Karaveddy and Kopay for addressing local social problems and issues.

A PAFFREL spokesman in Jaffna, referring to a report in TamilNet on 1 May, said that the organisation had paid 150 rupees (1.58 USD) for each person it had hired in the northern peninsula to monitor elections on April 2 before May 1.

The spokesman said the payment cheques had been released by 25 April 2004. TamilNet regrets the error.
