Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities in Vanni have instructed all schools and other such public institutions and organizations in their areas to inform them in advance if any political persons, representatives of volunteer organizations and Non-government Organizations (NGOs)
The government currently hands over details of foreign nationals entering the country to serve in non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to the state intelligence units for clearance. The move is initiated as part of the government’s move to monitor the functions of NGOs operating in the country.
