SLA expels resettled Kanchirankudah families

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 14 October 2003, 07:23 GMT]
Ten Tamil families who resettled in Kanchirankudah in the Amparai district have been forced out of their homes again by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA), which is saying the families could not live in their homes as these are close to the SLA‚s camps, sources in Amparai said.

The SLA is intimidating and harassing other families in the area too, the sources said.

In 1990, 176 families were displaced from Kanchirankudah as a result of the war. Out of these, 40 families from the gypsie community took shelter in the Kalliyantheevu for 13 years, and after the peaceful environment, resettled in the Potakulam area. The remaining 136 families resettled in Kanchirankudah.

The homes of 16 families have been taken over by the SLA to construct its camps.
