TNA briefs Swiss diplomats on NE situation

[TamilNet, Thursday, 17 August 2006, 20:04 GMT]
A Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentary delegation Wednesday briefed Mr.Y.V.E.S. Nicoler, First Secretary and Mr.M.R.C.Mark Andre Vunzely, Assistant Secretary of the Swiss Embassy in Colombo about the massive internal displacement of Tamil people in the North East following indiscriminate aerial and artillery bombardment by the Sri Lanka forces. All land and water routes to the LTTE held areas in the Batticaloa district have been closed by the SLA, TNA delegation told Swiss diplomats, sources said.

TNA delegation pointed out that the Sri Lanka Army has been preventing taking food relief, medicine and other essential materials needed for the IDPs located in the LTTE held areas in the North East. If the ban continues hundreds of thousands IDPs in LTTE held areas would have to face starvation, TNA delegation stressed.

Swiss diplomats assured the TNA delegation that they would forward their grievances to their government, TNA sources said.
