Checking at the Vavuniya – Omanthai military checkpoint which was carried for a long period of time was completely stopped today.

The Army stated that the decision was taken after considering the peaceful situation in the country.

The Omanthai check point was first set up in 2002 to inspect vehicles coming from North to south and vice versa as well as the general public.

During the humanitarian operation Madawachchiya and Omanthai checkpoint was considered as one of the main check points.

The army has planned to initiate the same security programme in the North as well as in the South.

However, Military spokesperson Brigadier Jayanath Jayaweera stated that due to the peaceful situation in the country daily checking is not required.

He also stated that whenever it is required checking will recommence at the Omanthai checkpoint.
