Army Conducts Briefings to Southern Travelers Arriving in Jaffna at EPS
[Updated :: 2010-11-03 14:55:10 Hours]

For the convenience of visitors from the south to Jaffna and also to help preserve the cultural values and identity of the peninsula, Psychological Operations Branch and Civil Affairs Office of the Headquarters Security Forces -Jaffna (SF-J) commenced a programme to educate people entering Jaffna through Elephant Pass (EPS).

Necessity arose to educate outsiders arriving in Jaffna on holiday and pilgrimage after some observations were brought to the notice of Commander SF-J Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe about inapt behaviour of a handful of visitors due to their unawareness of ethics, cultural values and administrative procedures of some visiting places.

Under this programme, soldiers attached to the Task Force 7 distribute handbills among commuters free of charge at EPS, the gateway to Jaffna in addition to a brief awareness lecture if requested. The leaflet educates the crowds on cultural practices of the local community, behavioural guidance for visitors during stay in Jaffna and a map of access routes to locations of tourist and religious interest.

The leaflet alerts the visitors especially on mine-threatened lands, environment conservation, road traffic guidance, behaviour at religious and public places, and own security.
