Lankan police stations to accept complaints in Tamil

Hundreds of Tamils living in Colombo and adjoining areas will now be able to lodge complaints in their own language, thanks to President Rajapaksa`s initiative.



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.
