SL Navy blocks fishermen from entering Northern Seas - Jaffna MP

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 03 January 2006, 15:06 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) personnel in Valvettithurai and Polikandy coastal areas in Jaffna have blocked fishermen from fishing for the past 3 days, Jaffna District Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Member of Parliament Mr.Selvarajah Gajendran told TamilNet Tuesday. The fishermen who are dependent on daily income from fishing for their livelihood were blocked also from moving their boats to other parts of the Jaffna peninsula, the MP said.

Gajendran said he had brought the matter to the attention of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in a fax urging the monitors to take up the issue with the Sri Lankan Navy and allow the fishermen to go to sea.

The fishermen who wanted to relocate to safer zones, should be allowed to do so without any hindrance, the MP told the monitors.
