* Sri Lanka Army aids in restoring fuel delivery hampered by the strike
Wed, Jul 26, 2017, 09:41 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 26, Colombo: Army troops, together with members of sister services by mid-noon today (26th July) succeeded in releasing a fleet of fuel-filled bowsers of the Petroleum Corporation to the outside market, affected by the ongoing trade union action, the Government Information Department said.

The fleet, comprised of re-fueled 15 bowsers left the Kolonnawa Petroleum Complex around 1.00 p.m. together with non-striking Petroleum Corporation drivers and security personnel for distribution across the island.

During early hours on Wednesday (26), Security Force personnel at the request of the Police entered the premises after the government declared supply of fuel as an essential service in a special gazette, issued last night.

Army troops while providing security to the storage premises would assist non-striking Petroleum employees with all possible technical assistance for supply of fuel, Army Media Sources said.
