Displaced families inquire about relatives

[TamilNet, Sunday, 06 December 1998, 19:38 GMT]
Oddusuddan residents who had taken refuge at Puthukudiyeruppu in the Mullaithivu district have been making enquiries about the fate of their family members who remained in the town, said the Voice of Tigers (VoT) radio.

Officials in Mullaithivu have taken steps to find out the fate of displaced people's relatives in Oddusuddan, said the radio.

The officials have promised the relatives that they will contact the appropriate civil authorities in Vavuniya, and collect information about the people concerned.

Meanwhile the civil authorities in Puthukudiyeruappu have said that the initial relief assistance to feed the displaced people for three days was over today.

They have said that they do not have any provisions to allocate money to continue to supply cooked meals but to provide dry rations as relief assistance with the approval of the government.

Officials have said they had already made requests to the International Red Cross Committee (ICRC) in the area to provide facilities for drinking water and toilets for the displaced.

SLA sources said yesterday that arrangements were being made to transport nearly 750 civilians, who were in the Oddusuddan area when it was captured by the Sri Lankan Army (SLA).
