Northern Fishermen meet Indian HC Officials

Mar 16, 2011 10:44:40 AM - thesundayleader.lk

A group of fishermen from the North have met with the Indian High Commission officials to hand over a petition requesting that Indian fishermen stop encroaching into Sri Lankan waters.

The fishermen have said that they want a joint approach of the countries to resolve the crisis.

A six member delegation from Mannar, Kilinochchi and Jaffna districts have reportedly taken part in the meeting.

The Sri Lankan fishermen have alleged that nearly 50 percent of Sri Lanka’s revenue in the fisheries sector is lost because of Indian encroachment.
