[TamilNet, Wednesday, 30 July 2008, 09:59 GMT]
People traveling from north to south in Sri Lanka cannot pass through Mathavaachchi Sri Lanka Army (SLA) check post if they do not have their National Identity Cards (NIC). Passport, driving license, and documents of identification related to professions were earlier accepted in place of NIC. People without NIC are now being sent back by the SLA in Mathavaachi check post, sources in Vavuniyaa said.

NICs made compulsory to travel south, has created difficulties to people who do not possess NICs.

All vehicles from Colombo and other parts to north are stopped at Mathavaachi SLA check post without being allowed to proceed to north.
