[TamilNet, Tuesday, 31 August 2004, 14:32 GMT]
The Consortium of Thenmaradchchi Civil Organizations in Jaffna district Tuesday handed over a memorandum to the Jaffna Government Agent (GA) with copies to Jaffna regional co-ordinator of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) and the Jaffna head of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) that it would launch a mass agitation bringing the civil administration and public transport system in Thenmaradchchi division to a halt if the houses and lands of internally displaced people (IDP) are not returned by the Sri Lanka Army.

The President of the Thenmaradchchi Civil Organizations, Mr. K.Arunthavapalan signed the memorandum.

"Thenmaradchi IDPs protest.Civilian houses now occupied by the Sri Lanka Army soldiers in Usan village should be handed over to the owners without any delay. IDPs of Thanankilappu, Maravanpulo, Eluthumadduval, Karampagam and Ottuveli should be allowed to return to their houses by removing the high security zone. Fishermen of Kovilakandy should be allowed to fish freely without any restriction," said the memorandum

SLA occupying civilian houses and their agricultural lands is an act of violating the ceasefire agreement signed by the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in February 200, said the memorandum.
