SLN imposes new restrictions on visitors to Mannaar

[TamilNet, Saturday, 25 July 2009, 04:37 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLA) authorities in Mannaar have directed all persons visiting Mannaar Island to surrender their national identity card and to obtain a special pass at the Mannaar Fort sentry point before entering the town. This directive has caused difficulties for the visitors to transact business and other official activities with banks and other government departments, civil society sources complain.

Government departments and banks require NIC from people and they refuse to accept the special pass issued by the Sri Lanka Navy to transact official business.
