SLA extends fishing ban in Vadamaraadchi

[TamilNet, Thursday, 21 June 2007, 18:02 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) extended the fishing ban imposed in Vadamaraadchi region in Jaffna district on Wednesday, in the wake of the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) and Sea Tiger battle in Point Pedro seas. There was no supply of fish in Vadamaraadchi Thursday. Fishing in the area was already restricted to day time and only one km into the sea from the coast, an impediment cutting down fishermen's catches and income.

The SLA fishing ban imposed Wednesday covered areas from Tho'ndaimaanaa'ru to Point Pedro Munai in Vadamaraadchi north and Ampan, Kudaththanai areas in Vadamaraadchi east.

The fishermen from these areas who expected the ban to be lifted Thursday were not able to go fishing to earn their daily income.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Air Force helicopters were seen flying over Vadamaraadchi during daytime Thursday as part of a search along the northern coastal villages.

A SLAF kfir bomber was also sighted circling above Vadamaraadchi Thursday.
