SLA reopens Uyilankulam checkpoint

[TamilNet, Friday, 09 March 2007, 11:39 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Friday morning reopened the Uyilankulam checkpoint, the gateway to Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) held territory in the Mannar district. The Uyilankulam checkpoint was closed by the SLA following a clash between the government troops and LTTE cadres Wednesday, sources said.

Hundreds of civilians and government servants traveled to and from government and LTTE controlled territories following the reopening of the checkpoint, sources said.

The checkpoint is opened three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday for the people on both sides to travel.

The Mannar Government Agent Mr.V.Visuvalingam has sought the assistance of the law enforcement authority to open the Uyilankulam checkpoint daily to facilitate the people on both sides to travel to meet their needs, sources said.

SLA will open the checkpoint Saturday, March 10, to facilitate the candidates in the LTTE held villages who have applied for the Grama Niladhari examination to travel to government controlled Mannar town to sit the examination. This examination is to be held throughout the island to recruit Grama Niladhari (village level officer), sources said.
