Political cadres blocked at Omanthai checkpoint - Vavuniya LTTE

[TamilNet, Sunday, 14 August 2005, 09:47 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers at the Omanthai checkpoint, the main entry point to the LTTE controlled Vanni, slamed the doors for all traffic without any prior notice at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday. The traffic resumed at 12:25 p.m. travellers said. However, political cadres of the Liberation Tigers were not allowed to cross the Omanthai SLA checkpoint, said Mr. Gnanam, LTTE's Vavuniya district political head. Also, LTTE's political cadres from Vanni were not allowed to cross the border-point, he added.

Vanni District TNA Parliamentarian Mr. Sivanathan Kishor complained to the ICRC officials and to the defence secretariat in Colombo about the traffic block which was imposed by the SLA soldiers at Omanthai. And the traffic resumed at 12:25 p.m.

The LTTE has logded a complaint with the nordic truce monitors about their cadres being blocked from crossing Omanthai by the SLA soldiers manning the point, Mr. Gnanam said.
