Colonel Sornam, Trincomalee district military commander of the Liberation
Tigers of Tamil Eelam Tuesday addressed the delegates of the international
and national level non-governmental organizations (INGOs and NGOs) in the
Trincomalee district about the urgency to expedite rehabilitation of war
and tsunami affected people and the reconstruction of devastated areas,
About thirty district heads of the INGOs and NGOs attended the discussion
held at Ganeshapuram Central College in Muttur east.
Mr.Semmanan, Deputy Political Head of the LTTE in Trincomalee district said
the ban imposed by the Sri Lanka Army to transport building materials,
cement and other items to the LTTE controlled areas has delayed the
construction of temporary houses for tsunami victims.
The SLA has imposed
the ban alleging that these building materials and cement were being used
for the construction of an airfield in Sampoor by the LTTE. That was not
true, Semmanan said.
