A court in Kilinochchi on Tuesday ordered huts built by fishermen from the South who had been fishing illegally to be removed and for the fishermen to leave from Vadamaradchchi East.
The court issued the order to eight organisations who had failed to seek permission from the divisional secretariat at Maruthenkeni and had staying on government land illegally.
Thirty-two huts are to be removed and 850 Southern fishermen have been ordered to vacate the area.
The court case follows a case filed by the Maruthenkeni Divisional Secretariat.
Last month there were prolonged protests in Mullaitivu after local fishermen accused police of releasing sinhala fishermen without charge despite clear evidence presented to them of their illegal fishing activities.
Mullaitivu fishermen have also protested over government officials accepting bribes to turn a blind eye to illegal activities.
