Court directs SLA to allow mother, children to travel to Vanni

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 30 October 2007, 17:54 GMT]
Jaffna Magistrate R. T. Vignaraja issued a directive to Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Jaffna Commander Maj. Gen. Chandrasiri to issue travel permit to a young wife, her two children, and mother who had been placed in protective custody due to death threats by SLA and SLA-backed paramilitaries, enabling her to join her husband in Ki'linochchi, sources in Jaffna said.

This directive was the first action taken in the Jaffna Magistrate Court when the newly opened Judicial Complex in Jaffna began officially operating Monday.

The young mother, a teacher serving in Va'ra'ni in Themaraadchi, had earlier appealed to Jaffna Magistrate to help her get transferred to a school in Ki'linochchi so that she could join her husband and two children, who were in Ki'linochchi at the time when the SLA closed the A9 route.

The Secretary to the Ministry of Education in the North responding to Jaffna Magistrate's orders conveyed the transfer order of the said teacher to Jaffna Courts Monday.

The Magistrate in turn issued a directive to the SLA Jaffna Commander to make immediate arrangements to issue travel pass for the teacher, her children and mother, so that they could safely rejoin her husband and other two children in Ki'linochchi.

The Magistrate also directed the SLA Commander to respond immediately to the directive of the Court.
