Registration rules for expatriate and local Tamils traveling to Colombo have been temporarily relaxed according to a statement released by the police today.

Senior DIG Nimal Madiweka told Daily Mirror Online a short while ago that the rule has been relaxed with immediate effect but gave no time frame for it. DIG Madiweka explained that all Tamils, whether they are from abroad or from the North and East, will not have to register themselves with the police as per earlier regulations if they are staying for a short periods. However according to Mr. Madiweka, Tamils planning long haul stays will have to register.

Mr. Madiweka said, “Tamils can stay in Colombo for up to one month without registering themselves but if they exceed that period then they will have to register.”
