No security relaxation in Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Sunday, 23 December 2001, 20:39 GMT]
Until the modalities of a proper cease-fire between the government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) are worked out, there will be no relaxation in checking at roadblocks and sentry points in the Trincomalee district. Roadblocks and sentry points would not be removed immediately, police sources said.

The roadblocks and checking at sentry points in Trincomalee town and its suburbs continue as normal. The Trincomalee harbour and its surroundings close to Naval Headquarters are still put on red alert, the sources said.

Meanwhile, the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has banned farmers from taking pure urea fertilizer to their paddy fields in the villages of Mutur East region, held by the Liberation Tigers.

The soldiers order farmers to mix sand with the fertilizer before they allowed them to take the fertilizer, farmers complain.
