Apr 12, Colombo: A Tamil parliamentarian elected from Sri Lanka's governing United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) has assured to gradually remove the high security zones (HSZs) in the northern peninsula.
Former Minister and EPDP Leader Douglas Devananda, has reportedly said that the HSZs in the peninsula will be removed as there is no security threat any more.
Devananda has recalled that President Mahinda Rajapaksa also has a vision for the people in the Northern Province to experience the same freedom as experienced by the people in the South.
"The high security zones were created because of the threat posed by the LTTE. But now there is no LTTE threat so these high security zones will be removed completely step by step," Devananda has told the Daily Mirror online.
