Displaced Tamil families to be resettled in Thullukudiruppu

[TamilNet, Saturday, 13 October 2007, 12:43 GMT]
Eighty seven Tamil families displaced from Thullukudiruppu village in Mannaar district in December, 2006, and staying with their relatives in Pe'saalai are to be resettled from Monday, according to a decision taken at a discussion held with Mannaar Divisional Secretary Ms Stanley de Mel Friday. Mannaar Bishop, Rt.Rev Rayappu Joseph, and representatives of international and national nongovernmental organizations participated in the discussion with displaced families.

The displaced families fled from their village and sought refuge in Pe'saalai following a claymore explosion at 100 Housing Project at Thullukudiruppu targeting a Sri Lanka Navy vehicle transporting navy soldiers on December 22, 2005.

The families have been appealing to the civil authorities in Mannar to take steps to resettle them in their own village.
