[TamilNet, Sunday, 01 August 2010, 13:54 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Vanni has refused permission to the uprooted families of Kumaarasaamipuram and Mayilvaakanapuram in Ki’linochchi district to resettle in their lands claiming that the area is infested with landmines, sources in Ki’linochchi said. These people were brought from Vavuniyaa SLA Menik Farm camp by Sri Lanka government authorities promising resettlement in their own villages. But now they are left abandoned in deserted places without sufficient food, water, hygienic facilities and safety, the affected civilians said.

241 families in Piraama’nankaadu school building and 60 at 12th Mile Post in Visuvamadu are left to fend for themselves, let down by Sri Lanka government authorities and humanitarian organizations.

Kalmadu tank, the water source in the area being destroyed during war, the familes have to walk a long distance to fetch water for drinking and other purposes from other water tanks.

SLA has divided the districts of Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu into two SLA Zones and many uprooted families brought from Vavuniyaa camps with promises of resettlement in their properties are left abandoned in many areas in Mullaitheevu SLA Zone being refused permission by SLA.
