On the 22nd of July, the pastor of the Jesus Christ Fire Church in Aththiyadi in the Jaffna district, received a letter from the Pradeshiya Sabha claiming that his church was an unauthorised construction and that he needed to obtain approval from the Ministry of Buddha Sasana and Religious Affairs for the construction. The letter stated that legal action would be taken against the church in the event the pastor failed to obtain the necessary approval.
