Myliddy IDP families demand resettlement

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 06 September 2005, 17:22 GMT]
Twenty-six displaced families from Myliddy area in Valigamam North division in Jaffna district Tuesday handed over memoranda to the head of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Jaffna demanding that they should be allowed to resettle in their lands and houses now being occupied by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA). Each IDP family submitted a separate memorandum to the SLMM, civil sources in Jaffna said.

Continuous refusal by the SLA to allow the IDPs to resettle in their own lands and houses should be considered as a blatant violation of the ceasefire agreement, IDP families told the SLMM.

According to the terms of the Cease-Fire Agreement signed by the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam all displaced families should be allowed to resettle in their lands and houses.
