SLA imposes travel restrictions on teenagers

[TamilNet, Sunday, 25 January 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The SLA has placed further restrictions on Tamil boys and girls from travelling to Colombo. Earlier, boys and girls between the age of 14 and 21 could travel to Colombo on the basis of priority letters recommended by the Grama Sevakas (village officers) in their respective areas of residence.

The new rule requires them to get a priority letter from an SLA officer holding the rank of Captain or above in the military camps in the area of residence.

The new regulation has been introduced in view of security arrangement for the independent day celebrations, said sources.

Meanwhile, security in the Jaffna Town has been tightened and SLA soldiers have been deployed in all parts of the town, said sources in Jaffna.
