Jaffna calm: No ‘Heroes Day’

Situation in the Jaffna peninsula remained calm yesterday despite speculation of possible minor unrest following reports of holding LTTE ‘Heroes’ Day’ commemoration activities.
It was reported that a certain section of the Jaffna University students had prepared to commemorate LTTE Heroes’ Day and put up posters and notices inside the campus.
The notices were eventually removed.
Jaffna Security Forces Commander, Major General Mahinda Huthurusinghe told The Nation they had instructed the people not to indulge in such activities as the LTTE was a banned organisation.
“There were no problems. We instructed the university students not to get involved in such activities and they agreed with us. Therefore, the situation is very calm,” he said.
