Lankan police stations to accept complaints in Tamil
Colombo: Hundreds of Tamils living in
Colombo and adjoining areas will now be able to lodge
complaints in their own language, thanks to President Mahinda
Rajapaksa`s initiative to train security personnel in Tamil.
The Welikada police station in Colombo suburbs has
started accepting entries in Tamil yesterday for convenience
of the language-speaking people.
A senior police officer said the facility would soon be
opened at other police stations in the region.
Rajapaksa had recently directed policemen to be trained
in Tamil. The government`s move in the capital has come in the
wake of hundreds of Tamils coming to Colombo in search of
livelihood after fleeing the country`s war-torn north.
