SLA allows IDPs to settle in no-man's land near HSZ

[TamilNet, Sunday, 03 April 2005, 13:34 GMT]
Jaffna area command of the Sri Lanka Army has given permission to the Jaffna district secretariat to relocate a section of the internally displaced families (IDPs) in an area located close to northeast of Palaly High Security Zone (HSZ) following threats by the Valigamam north fisheries societies that they would launch an agitation campaign if their demand were not met, secretariat sources said.

Earlier the IDP families living in coastal areas of Vadamaradchchi division for about fifteen years demanded that they should be allowed to resettle in Manpainthaveli area between Thondamannaru west lagoon and Valalai.

No SLA camp is currently located in the said area.

Valigamam north fisheries societies are now preparing lists of names of IDPs who are willing to relocate themselves in the no-man land, sources said.

A section of IDP families now residing in coastal villages in Vadamaradchchi division are preparing to relocate to the said no-man land, sources said.
