[TamilNet, Saturday, 24 September 2005, 07:57 GMT]
Soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army manning coastal checkpoints assaulted a group of fishermen Saturday early morning for returning to the shore after fishing before the stipulated time given by the Sri Lankan armed forces. Fishermen of Vadamaradchchi North have been ordered by the SLA not to return to the shore with their catch before 6.30 a.m., Vadamaradchchi North Fisheries Co-operative Societies Federation Secretary Mr.K.Suriyakumaran said.

Fishermen of Inbaruty, Polykandi, Point Pedro and Munai were the victims of the army assault. Soldiers also damaged boats of these fishermen, Mr.Suriyakumaran said.

Fisheries Federation sources have complained to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission truce monitors in Jaffna about the assault on the fishermen. Federation has requested the SLMM to take immediate steps to save the lives and properties of fishermen of the area from the harassment by the SLA, sources said.
