[TamilNet, Wednesday, 11 June 2008, 17:28 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Jaffna Commander, Major. Gen. G. A. Chandrasiri, informed the representatives of the editorial boards of the three Tamil dailies Uthayan, Valampuri and Yaazh Thinakkural published in Jaffna peninsula that the SLA has taken steps to provide police and SLA security measures for the offices of the three Tamil dailies, in a meeting held Wednesday at the SLA Head Quarters in Palaali High Security Zone.

These immediate measures have been taken following Colombo SLA Head Office receiving information of editors, journalists and the offices of the three Tamil dailies in Jaffna peninsula being subjected to intimidations and threats.

The representatives of the editorial boards were taken in SLA vehicles to Palaali HSZ for the meeting with Jaffna SLA Commander.

Policemen will be posted to each office of the three Tamil dailies while additional SLA troops will be deployed in the surrounding area of the offices, to provide security, the Sri Lankan Major General informed.

Action will be soon taken to warrant the safety of the journalists of the said three Tamil dailies and to offer security for them, he added.
