SLMM Trinco office remains closed

[TamilNet, Thursday, 03 August 2006, 07:13 GMT]
The main office of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), located on Inner Harbour Road, leading to the Trincomalee naval base, remains closed until further notice since Wednesday's artillery shell attack on the east port base. Monitors are now staying in their quarters in a hotel about sixteen km off the town.

Monitors of the SLMM based in east port town soon after the artillery shell attack on Trincomalee naval base on Tuesday afternoon vacated the building immediately and went to the living quarters in Nilaveli.

The sub-office of the Trincomalee SLMM located in Muttur town was closed a month ago due to volatile situation there.

However the official vehicle of the Muttur SLMM sub-office is with the Muttur Police, sources there said.

The re-opening of the SLMM office in Trincomalee town is solely depended on the improvement of the ground security situation, informed sources said.

The offices of the SLMM in Jaffna, Mannar, Vavuniya, and Batticaloa continue to function.
