Indian, Northern fishermen society representatives meet to discuss comon issues

[TamilNet, Sunday, 15 August 2010, 05:20 GMT]
A group of 23 representatives of the fisheries societies in Northern Sri Lanka are to meet their counterparts in Tamil Nadu to discuss matters including the illegal invasion of Indian fishing trawlers into the seas of Northern Sri Lanka and the escalating attacks by Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) on Tamil Nadu fishermen. The gorup, led by S. Thavaratnam, will hold discussion from 14 to 22 August, fisheries society sources in Jaffna said. Though a similar meeting had been arranged two years ago it had to be abandoned as Sri Lanka Defence Ministry and the Indian High Commission to Sri Lanka had not permitted the meeting to take place.

Representatives of the major fisheries societies in Tamil Nadu and the representatives of the fisheries societies in the districts of Jaffna, Ki'linochchi and Mannaar will participate in the meeting.
