Resettled IDPs in Jaffna ordered to register particulars with SLA, SLN

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 15 December 2009, 03:13 GMT]
The Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) brought from Vanni camps and resettled in Jaffna have been ordered to register their particulars with the local civil administrative authorities of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) or Sri Lanka Navy (SLN), sources in Jaffna said. These IDPs who had already registered their particulars with their local Village Officers are again being subjected to endless inconvenience, the sources added. The IDPs in Jaffna peninsula and the islets cannot move freely without the Family Registration Certificate (FRC) issued by SLA or SLN.

According to the new order the IDPs have to register all details of their family members along with their photos with their local SLA/SLN civil authorities and obtain the FRC.

The IDPs resettled in the islets of Jaffna are unable to move freely without the FRC.

Being repeatedly subjected to restrictions has created frustration among the resettled IDPs in Jaffna, the sources said.
