SLA constructs barbed wire fence along northern coast

[TamilNet, Sunday, 22 June 2003, 18:23 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has started constructing an eight-kilometer long barbed wire fence along the northern seashore from Potpathi to Kudathanai villages curtailing the freedom of movement of fishermen in Vadamarachchi division, Potpathi Fisheries Co-operative Society said Saturday

It further said several rolls of barbed wire and logs were brought down to the seashore for the construction of the barbed wire fence.

The SLA is tightening the security of the coastal villages in the Jaffna district. Several new sentries have been established in the coastal areas during the last two weeks. This has caused severe hardship to the fisherfolk to go out fishing, Potpathi Fisheries Co-operative Society said.

Additional security measures that impact the daily lives of the residents of affected villages are creating tension in the area, civilian sources said.
