Thellippazhai govt. hospital allowed to operate again in its original building

[TamilNet, Monday, 15 March 2010, 14:39 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Jaffna Commander, Major Gen. Mahintha Kathurusinghe and Jaffna Government Agent, K. Ganesh officially handed over Monday afternoon the original building of Thellippazhai government hospital to its administration which had been functioning in government buildings outside the SLA High Security Zone (HSZ) in Thellippazhai for the last 20 years. SLA had taken over the hospital building during the war in 1990, sources in Jaffna said.

The hospital has been functioning in the government buildings located in front of Thellippazhzi Thurkkaa Theavasthaanam.

Meanwhile, SLA has announced that patients and visitors to the hospital could go there in their own vehicles without any checks on the way.

SLA which had been saying that it would permit the internally displaced persons from Thellippazhai HSZ to resettle in their own properties is yet to keep its word, representatives of IDP welfare organizations said.

There is no point in allowing the hospital to function in the HSZ when the people of the area are not allowed to resettle in their houses there, they added.
