Mr. Maruthan, head of the Thamileelam Revenue Section, Mr.K.Nakeeran, head of the Thamileelam Plantations Division, and Mr.V.Chelian, head of the Thamileelam Price Control Division associated with Mr. Thamilenthi at the press briefing which lasted for about an hour from 3.30 p.m., sources said.

Mr. Thamilenthi further said the price control would be strictly enforced in Thamileelam area with effect from May 15th.

He added that about 4460 acres of coconut plantation now being under the management of the LTTE in the Vanni region would be handed over to representatives of the owners who now live abroad for better maintenance including re-planting, sources said.
