SLA collects information on Nedunthivu resettlers

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 09 August 2005, 00:56 GMT]
Soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) have started collecting names of displaced persons who are resettled in Nedunthivu, one of the islets in Jaffna peninsula, after the ceasefire agreement came into operation, residents said.

Large number of families who were fleeing Nedunthivu in 1990 following the military operation of the Sri Lanka Army sought refuge elsewhere in the Jaffna town. They again had to leave Jaffna to Vanni region in the 1995 Riviressa operation, sources said.

Majority of the displaced had returned to Nedunthivu and resettled when the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) signed the ceasefire agreement in the year 2002, with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), sources said.
