New SLA regulations for ambulances

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 02 February 1999, 13:21 GMT]
The Sri Lankan Army (SLA) has stipulated new transport regulations for the movement of ambulances from LTTE controlled areas of the Vanni to SLA controlled areas.

Under the new regulations male patients can only be accompanied in the ambulance by another person over 55 years of age while those accompanying female patients must be over 45 years.

The SLA announcement further said that only the mother would be allowed to accompany a child patient transported in an ambulance.

Non Governmental Organisation (NGOs) in Vavuniya have protested over the new SLA regulations.

Meanwhile the Kytes Pradeshiya Sabah (council) has sent an urgent letter to the Sri Lankan President, Chandrika Kumarathunge, appealing for the relocation of the Sri Lankan Navy (SLN) camp at the 'Velanai Thuraisamy Vidyalayam' (school) in Jaffna.

The letter said the SLN has occupied many buildings of the school resulting in a shortage of classrooms.

The letter further said the presence of SLN personnel in the school campus had made students feel threatened.

A copy of the letter has been sent to the Deputy Minister of defence and to the SLN commander.
