The Liberation Tigers have put up posters in Maamunai, Pt. Pedro, Sempiyanpattu, and Nelliyaan in Jaffna, banning the distilling and selling of illicit liquor. The LTTE has said that it will take severe action against anyone who continues to trade in illicit liquor.

The Tigers have also said that they are issuing a final warning to Sri Lanka Army (SLA) informants to cease their activity.

The LTTE has banned all fishing in the Vadamaradchi East lagoon until further notice from yesterday.

Informed sources were quoted as saying that the intention behind this ban by the Tigers was to stop information about their movements in the area reaching the army.

There are several places in this region which are not controlled by the army. Meanwhile the SLA's "Special Motorbike" unit cordorned off and searched Karaveddi Central, in Vadamaradchi today.
