SLA soldiers deployed again in road checks, patrol in Jaffna peninsula

[TamilNet, Sunday, 16 May 2010, 19:11 GMT]
Thousands of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers are deployed along with the police in carrying out checks and patrol of the main roads in Jaffna peninsula again, sources in Jaffna said. Jaffna SLA Commander Mahinda Kathrusinghe informed that SLA forces are being deployed to help the police in Jaffna peninsula to contain the escalating abductions for ransom, killings, robberies and sexual violence on women, deteriorating law and order in the peninsula, in a meeting with the Jaffna district lawyers and magistrates Saturday.

The SLA commander had also said that the deteriorating law and order situation in the peninsula has called for the deployment of SLA forces in an effort to justify the beefing up of its forces in the peninsula.

Meanwhile, opposition parties including Tamil National Alliance (TNA) accused Sri Lanka government of purposely staging the above mentioned social crimes to be carried out by elements collaborating with its Intelligence Wing so as to create a situation that calls for the permanent presence of SLA forces in the peninsula, to continue to hold it absolute control, the sources added.
