SLA hands over two schools in Tellipalai

[TamilNet, Monday, 19 August 2002, 20:13 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army Monday (SLA) officially handed over Tellipalai Union College and ‘Thanthai Chelva’ Tamil School to the Department of Education in Jaffna district. The SLA allowed only students and teachers to enter buildings of these two schools.

At the request of Jaffna district parliamentarian Mr. Mavai Senathirajah, the SLA officials who were present at the scene later allowed parents and well-wishers to join the teachers and students.

SLA officials said that students and teachers will be allowed to enter these schools after being checked at the sentry point

However, parliamentarian Mavai Senathirajah told the SLA officials that the army sentry, which has been in front of the main entrances of the two schools should be removed and be relocated 200 feet away from the present site.

Mr. Senathirajah assured the school authorities that he would take up this matter with the Prime Minister when a Tamil National Alliance delegation meets the latter this week in Colombo.

Meanwhile, the SLA officials have informed the authorities concerned that they would be handing over the Tellipalai hospital and the multi purpose co-operative society (MPCS) building to the respective department next week. The buildings of these two institutions at present have been occupied by the SLA, sources said.
