[TamilNet, Monday, 22 December 2003, 14:18 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) charged the Liberation Tigers (LTTE) of building a new bunker in Pullumalai in Batticaloa district in violation of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), and registered a complaint with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), security sources in Batticaloa said.

Pullumalai is located 40km northwest of Batticaloa town on the Chenkaladi-Badulla road.

Pullumalai is a border village located at the Batticaloa-Amparai boundary. A section of the village is under the control of the LTTE and the remainder is controlled by the SLA.

In the complaint to the SLMM, SLA alleged that the location of the bunker is within an area controlled by the SLA. Members of the SLMM are reported to be planning a visit to Pullumalai to investigate the veracity of the complaint and to take appropriate action, security sources said.
