CaFFE urges proper registration of detained voters in camps

[TamilNet, Monday, 01 November 2010, 15:33 GMT]
The Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE) in a statement urged Sri Lanka Department of Elections to implement a proper program to register the persons above the age of eighteen now held in the detention centers in the North including Menik Farm, in the 2010 voters’ list revising process. The voter registration process in many parts of the North is in its final stages right now.

Initial steps have not been taken to register the uprooted persons detained in camps such as the Menik Farm camp in Vavuniyaa in the 2010 voters list.

Over 17,000 people are still under detention in the camps.

Elections Department has decided to postpone the registering of the detainees in Menik Farm camp as voters until they are resettled, CaFFE statement says.
