Sri Lanka Army (SLA) civil administrative officials in Jaffna refused Friday to permit government employees earlier serving in Vanni to report for duty in Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts in Vanni though Northern Province Governor, Major G. A. Chandrasiri had ordered them to report for duty in both districts. Many government employees including teachers who are originally from Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts and now staying in Jaffna were not allowed to return to their places for duty Friday by the SLA civil authorities in Jaffna Sinhala Maha Viththiyalaya.

However, the above government employees originally from Jaffna were allowed to proceed to Vanni.

SLA civil authorities in Jaffna said that according to orders from their superiors, persons originally from Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts cannot be allowed to return to their own places for duty.

Almost all persons from Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts held in Jaffna and some of them from Vavuniyaa camps had been released as their relatives in Jaffna took responsibility of maintaining them.

Those from Vavuniyaa camps had opted to stay with their relatives in Jaffna as resettlement in their own places was not possible.
