[TamilNet, Sunday, 10 October 2004, 18:06 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Police (SLA) has ordered the Point Pedro Urban Council (UC)
authorities to hand over their office keys to the Police Station which is
located inside the high security zone daily in the evening and take back
next morning. The headquarters of the 524 Brigade of the SLA is also
located inside the HSZ, sources said.
The SLA has asked the UC authorities to adhere this procedure strictly,
local government sources said.
The restriction imposed by the SLA has caused difficulties for the
employees of the UC to report for work in time and to discharge their
duties, sources said.
UC sources said employees are forced to wait for hours outside the police
station to get their keys.
UC Secretary Ms Thiruchelvam has said she is not a position to help her employees in this regard.
