Tamil fishermen pretest against Sri Lanka’s decision

Local Tamil fishermen from North and East had suffered a loss of several million rupees due to Singala fishermen’s illegal trawling in Northern and Eastern waters.

On Tuesday, in Jaffna’s Gurunagar area, local trawler fishermen staged a protest demanding that they be allowed to engage in trawling. Sri Lankan government allows Sinhala fishermen to use trawler but refuse for Tamil local fishermen.

Meantime, Sri Lanka is toughening its stance against Indian fishermen in Sri Lankan waters, the Fisheries Ministry has decided not to release any Indian boat involved in the illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing.
