Jaffna Bishop, Rt. Rev. Thomas Saundaranayagam, has appealed to Jaffna Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Commander, Major. Gen. G. A. Chandrasiri to lift the SLA imposed night-curfew in Jaffna peninsula on Christmas and New Year nights so as to enable the Christians in the peninsula to attend midnight mass and services in the peninsula churches freely, Rev. Fr. Rosan, Bishop’s Secretary, said in a media release Friday night.

SLA has clamped a daily night curfew from 9:00 p.m to 4:30 a.m in Jaffna peninsula which is in force since the last two years.
