    Jaffna is full of criminals and sliding into anarchy. The drugs smugglers, Avaa group, petty criminals and ex militants. Police turn a blind eye in most instance and the out dated criminal system prolong cases for months if not years. Sad reality of Srilanka...

    We are fed up with this weak government not eradicating the violent criminals and ex-terrorists regrouping in Jaffna. The Police in Jaffna is corrupt and incompetent,give the law enforcement to the Army from 6pm to 9am each day.
