Jaffna Government Agent (GA) informed Tuesday media in Jaffna peninsula that the Governor of Northern Province, Major. Gen. G. A, Chandrasiri has annulled the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) imposed travel pass procedure on persons travelling out of Jaffna peninsula, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, SLA authorities in Jaffna had insisted that the said procedure is still in force despite recent Ministry of Defence directive declaring that people could freely travel through A9 road submitting a photo copy of their National Identity Card (NIC), the sources added.

The Governorís directive says the SLA travel pass procedure is being annulled with effect from Tuesday, according to Jaffna GAís information to media.

The SLA travel pass procedure has been imposed for the last three years by the SLA in Jaffna and residents of Jaffna had to obtain the said travel passes from the SLA travel control authorities located in Jaffna Sinhala Maha Viththiyaalayam.

Meanwhile, the fisheries societies in Jaffna pointed out that the fishing restrictions imposed by the SLA in Jaffna continue to be in force.
