[TamilNet, Monday, 16 November 2009, 05:30 GMT]
Although the Sri Lanka Ministry of Defence had announced that all persons can travel through A9 road showing their identity documents Sri Lanka Amy (SLA) authorities in Jaffna insist on all Jaffna residents obtaining the travel pass from their local SLA civil administration officers, sources in Jaffna said. Many Jaffna residents who had tried to travel through A9 road Saturday and Sunday without the SLA travel pass were sent back home, the sources added.

Only persons from other parts of the country, excluding permanent residents of Jaffna, can travel through A9 road to and from Jaffna showing their National Identity Card or Passport or other similar documents of identity at the SLA check post in Vavuniyaa, SLA authorities in Jaffna said.
