Jaffna judges, magistrates, lawyers can travel via A9 road with SLA permission

[TamilNet, Sunday, 18 October 2009, 09:25 GMT]
Minister of Justice and Law Reforms, Milinda Moragoda, said that the judges, magistrate and lawyers in Jaffna peninsula can travel through A9 road to Vavuniya obtaining permission from the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) commander in Palaali military base in response to a request extended when he met the magistrates, judges and lawyers of Jafna in the Legal building complex in Jaffna town Friday, sources in Jaffna said. People in Jaffna peninsula can travel through A9 road only after getting the ‘travelling pass’ from their local SLA civil authorities.

Milinda Morogoda visited many places in Jaffna peninsula including Point Pedro Magistrate Court which lies within the High Security Zone (HSZ) occupied by SLA.

The Court now functions in another place and the issue of allowing it to function in its original place was discussed during the minister’s visit to Point Pedro.

Milinda Morogoda had also assured that he will take constructive steps to construct buildings for the other magistrate courts in the peninsula.

The minister was taken to Jaffna town from Palaali military airport heavily escorted with Buffel Armoured Personnel Carriers when he came to Jaffna.
