[TamilNet, Friday, 17 September 2010, 06:24 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) have constructed many bases and camps in the properties of uprooted families and on the coastal villages of Vadamaraadchi East using the roofing, door and windows plundered from the shops and houses left by the residents, persons who visited the area said. The areas from Naakar-koayil to Kaddaik-kaadu are fully occupied by SLA and SLN, they further said. Meanwhile, Jaffna Government Agent Ms. Imelda Sukumar has announced that uprooted families from Vadamaraadchi East will be taken to their own places in the second stage of the resettlement plan and that Jaffna SLA Command had given permission for the resettlement.

The uprooted families who were taken from Raamaavil and Kudaththanai camps are now lodged in Chempiyanpattu Government Tamil Mixed School, Uduththu'rai Makaaa Viththiyaalayam, Maruthangkea'ni Hindu Makaa Viththiyaalayam and Thaazhaiyadi government hospital which had been under the control of Liberation Tigers before the war.

The families were told that they will be resettled in places excluding some parts in Kaddaik-kaadu, Vettilaik-kea’ni, Thaazhaiyadi and Naakar-koayil.

Jaffna GA said that nearly 3,500 uprooted families staying with their relatives and friends in Vadamaraadchi will be taken to Vadamaraadchi East for resettlement in the second stage of resettlement plan.

The 3,500 families are staying now in places from Valveddith-thu’rai to Katkoava’lam in Vadamaraadchi North and in Ma’nat-kaadu, Kudaththanai and Ampan in Vadmaraadchi East which had been under the control of SLA during the war.

Meanwhile, the families lodged in the schools and hospitals say that they will look after themselves if they are allowed to resettle in their own properties and engage in their traditional livelihood of fishing.
