Mullaiththeevu town declared HSZ: GA

[TamilNet, Monday, 06 July 2009, 10:31 GMT]
The Government Agent of Mullaiththeevu, Imelda Sukumar, on Sunday reportedly told a section of the uprooted Tamils of Vanni sheltered at the internment camp situated at "Sahanagama" in Pulmoaddai that the town of Mullaiththeevu has been declared High Security Zone by the Sri Lankan military, dashing any hope of resettlement in the coastal township of Vanni.

Hundreds of Tamils captured by the Sri Lankan military are kept in the centre.

Ms. Imelda Sukumar spoke to the IDPs and recorded their grievances and urgent needs.

She further told Vanni IDPS now sheltered in Pulmoaddai: "Under the present circumstances you have to stay in Pulmoaddai camps for another three months. Thereafter all families displaced from Mullaiththeeivu would be shifted to Maangku'lam as the Mullaiththeevu town has been declared as High Security Zone."

"We cannot resettle IDPs of Mullaiththeevu in their original places. The District Secretariat office is also to be relocated in Maangku'lam," media reports quoted the GA as saying.

Later she handed over salaries to the employees of the Mullai District Secretariat and Divisional Office who are sheltered in Pulmoaddai camp.
