SLA harasses resettled civilians in Vanni - TNA

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 29 June 2010, 03:15 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Jaffna district parliamentarians informed visiting British Acting High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, Mr. Mark Gooding Monday, that the resettled civilians in Vanni are harassed by occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers according to several complaints they had received from the resettled civilians in Vanni, sources in Jaffna said. TNA parliamentarians Mavai Senathirajah, Suresh Premachandran, Sritharan and Appathurai Vinayagamoorthy met the visiting British envoy in a hotel in Chu’ndukkuzhi. The TNA parliamentarians also explained how the resettled civilians in Vanni have been left to suffer even without basic facilities that should have been provided prior to resettlement by government authorities, the sources added.



The TNA parliamentarians brought to the notice of the Acting High Commissioner that many of the complaints by the resettled civilian are on the sexual abuse their women are subjected to by the occupying SLA soldiers.

Mr. Mark Gooding later met Jaffna Government Agent, K. Ganesh at Jaffna Secretariat.

Meanwhile, the TNA parliamentarians said that Mr. Mark Gooding showed a keen interest in learning about the situation of resettlement in Jaffna and Vanni besides the general conditions affecting the normal lives of people.

The people, particularly those in Vanni live in constant fear among other hardships, the MPs told the visiting British envoy.
