[TamilNet, Thursday, 10 January 2008, 17:48 GMT]
The representatives of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) are completing any remaining activities and are preparing to leave Jaffna peninsula on the 16th, two weeks after the unilateral withdrawal of Sri Lanka state from the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) with Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), sources in Jaffna said. SLMM representatives are handing over their vehicles and equipments to two Danish Non-governmental Organizations which still remain in Jaffna peninsula, the sources added.

The Danish Demining Organization and Danish Refugee Council Rehabilitation Organization are the two recipients of the 3 SLMM official pick-up vehicles that were in use in the peninsula besides office equipments including computers.

SLMM representatives officially handed the above vehicles and equipments to the Danish NGOs Wednesday.

The SLMM representatives who are to be flown to Colombo to report at their Colombo Head Quarters paid six-months wages to their local employees and bid farewell to them Thursday.

The SLMM representatives of the locations in the rest of the island are able drive their vehicles directly to Colombo as there are no Sri Lanka Army (SLA) closure of land routes on their way as in the case of A9, the only land access to Jaffna peninsula.
