SLA accused of imposing restrictions on resettlement in Valikaamam

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 16 November 2010, 16:07 GMT]
The Welfare Associations for the uprooted families from Valikaamam accused Jaffna Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities for imposing undue restrictions on the people in Thellippazhai Divisional Secretariat area. Jaffna Government Agent (GA) Ms. Imelda Sukumar, instructed by the SLA authorities has asked the families of the above area to again register their particulars on 19 November though they had submitted the necessary particulars earlier, the associations said. Besides, the Non-government Organizations that are to assist the families to be resettled are also asked to submit applications through the GA. The families are not going to be resettled in the SLA occupied High Security Zone (HSZ) in Valikaamam but in the No-man-zone on the edge of the HSZ, the associations pointed out.

The Village Officer divisions of I’lavaalai North, I’lavaalai NorthWest and Viththakapuram are the places in Thellippazhai Divisional Secretariat that are allowed for resettlement by the SLA authorities.

Meanwhile, the government department officials responsible for the essential services to the people in the above areas have been asked to submit particulars of the officers along with the particulars of the vehicles they will be using, to SLA authorities through the GA.

Meanwhile, Jaffna GA Ms. Imelda Sukumar continues to maintain that there are no HSZs in Valikaamam North but only areas infested with landmines that are to be cleared.
