The Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission said yesterday that the LTTE and the military were violating the ceasefire agreement by constructing bunkers at Omanthai.
SLMM`s acting spokesman Robert Nilsson told the Daily Mirror there were complaints from both parties accusing each of constructing bunkers and defence lines.
?Our monitors confirmed that both parties have constructed or repaired their bunkers and defence lines, in what can be seen as a clear violation of the ceasefire agreement?, he said.
The spokesman said the military and the LTTE agreed to dismantle these constructions soon. ?We will continue our investigations into the matter and hope the parties will keep their promises?, he added.
Responding to SLMM charges the military said it had only repaired a bunker, as it was in a dilapidated condition.
?The army had not constructed any new bunkers; we only repaired a broken down bunker?, a senior military official in the area said.
