Champoor families return to shelters in Ki'liveddi transit camp

[TamilNet, Friday, 15 May 2009, 11:27 GMT]
231 members of 57 Tamil families, who were displaced from their traditional villages in Moothoor division in Trincomalee district in 2006 military operation launched by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA), were transported in 10 buses of the State Transport Board on Thursday via Vaakarai from Batticaloa district where they had been sheltered in welfare centres for resettlement. IDP families of Champoor and Chanthoasapuram in Moothoor east division have been sheltered in Ki'liveddi transit camp. This was in accordance of "their wish," rehabilitation officials said.

IDP families of Athiamaankea'ni, Thanganakar and Chivapuram in Seruvila electorate have been resettled in their own villages.

Chanthoasapuram and Champoor are located in the area which has been declared by the government as high security zone in Moothoor division after April 2006 military operation.

However, a group of 2,622 Tamils displaced from Moothoor division is still living in welfare centres located in Batticaloa district since April 2006.
