Implementation of Cease-fire Agreement not adequate- Sivajilingam

[TamilNet, Friday, 21 February 2003, 23:52 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance parliamentarian (TNA) Mr.M.K.Sivajilingam said Friday addressing a conference held at the Jaffna district secretariat that the Cease-fire Agreement (CFA) has not been implemented in a way to alleviate the sufferings of the displaced people who are still languishing in refugee camps and welfare centres.

The conference was held in connection with the commemoration of the first anniversary of the cease-fire agreement signed by Government of SriLanka (GOSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), secretariat sources said.

The Government Agent Mr.S.Pathmanathan presided. Jaffna district parliamentarian Mr. Mavai Senathirajah, divisional secretaries and several representatives of the local and international non-governmental organizations also participated at the conference.

One year has passed after signing the Cease-fire Agreement between the GOSL and the LTTE . But the agreement has not been effectively implemented to facilitate displaced Tamils to move to their own houses and lands with a peace of mind, said Mr.Sivajilingam.

No one can deceive the Tamils by providing one hundred thousand rupees for their resettlement or rehabilitation. The urgent need is to implement the cease-fire agreement to ensure return of normalcy in the northeast enabling Tamils to live with self-respect, Mr.Sivajilingam added.
