Pullumalai bunker is closed - SLMM

[TamilNet, Sunday, 04 January 2004, 20:19 GMT]
Members of Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) said that the bunker in Pullumalai, which the Sri Lanka Army alleged was a violation of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) by the Liberation Tigers, is in a closed state, security sources said.

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

SLA two weeks ago has registered a complaint with the SLMM that the LTTE was building a new bunker inside their territory.

SLMM after preliminary investigation said that since there was no defining boundary in the pullumalai area to demarcate the control by the SLA and LTTE, they would have to await their head office in Colombo to make the determination.

After two visits by an SLMM delegation from Colombo to survey the controversial site, the SLMM announced Sunday that there are no signs of any new bunkers and the existing bunker is in a closed state.
