SLA prevents education officials from entering school in HSZ

[TamilNet, Friday, 30 May 2003, 17:09 GMT]
A group of education officials and officials from the North East Community Restoration Development (NECORD) project were prevented by the soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Friday from entering the Tellipalai Union College, which is located in the high security zone, north of the Jaffna district.

The officials were on official duty to visit the school to prepare plans and estimates to construct a laboratory at the College. The NECORD has allocated about 4.2 million rupees for this purpose, sources said.

The soldiers at the army sentry told the group of officials that they would not be allowed to go to the college, as it is located in the high security zone and only students and teachers would be allowed to go to the school, the sources said.

The disappointed group of officials thereafter left the area. One official said that the money allocated for the purpose of constructing a science laboratory in the school could be returned to the NECORD if not spent within the stipulated period.
