Checkpoints Removed

Oct 27, 2010 2:41:02 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The military said today (27) that roadblocks and checkpoints between Wellawatte and Bambalapitiya areas would be removed.

Military Spokesperson Major General Ubhaya Medawela told the media that the removal of roadblocks is due to the improved security situation in the country following the end of the war and that it would enable the public to move freely within the city.

He has said the military was planning to remove other roadblocks as well.

However, Medawela has added that an alternative surveillance system will be put in place to ensure security in the city.
