Vanni IDPs continued to be detained in Jaffna district camps

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 October 2009, 12:04 GMT]
The Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Mullaiththeevu and Ki’linochchi districts in Vanni now held in the detention camps in Mirusuvil, Kodikaamam Naavaladi and Kaithadi will be continued to be held in the same camps, according to Minister Douglas Devananda, who Sunday visited the three camps. Though the government says that it is going to resettle Vanni IDPs in their own villages, in reality they are continued to be held in the camps, NGO sources in Jaffna said.

Altogether there are nearly 2881 persons of 958 families held in the three camps mentioned.

Steps are being taken to hand over the IDPs if their relatives in Jaffna if they are willing to take charge of them, Jaffna Secretariat sources said.
