Magistrate courts to be built in Vanni where IDPs are yet to be resettled

[TamilNet, Sunday, 07 March 2010, 11:36 GMT]
Sri Lanka government is actively engaged in building police stations and magistrate courts in the districts of Ki値inochchi and Mullaiththeevu in Vanni where Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are yet to be resettled, sources in Vanni said. Secretary to the Ministry of Justice made a sudden visit Wednesday to Ki値inochchi and Mullaitheevu with the view to find locations for the magistrate courts to be built. He was accompanied by Buddhist Priest Rev. Athamba Buthara Kalyanasitha Thero and the magistrates of Vavuniyaa, Mannaar and the magistrates appointed to Ki値inochchi and Mullaiththeevu, the sources added.

The magistrate courts in Ki値inochchi and Mulaaiththeevu are to be built with financial aid from Asian Development Bank (ADB).

S. Sivakumar, appointed magistrate to Ki値inochchi district, M. M. A. Riyal, appointed magistrate to Mullaiththeevu accompanied the Secretary along with Vavuniyaa magistrate A. J. Alex and Mannaar magistrate A. Judsen.

Meanwhile, Inspector General Police recently opened the newly built police station in Poonakari and the foundation stone for Ki値inochchi police station was laid by him on the same day.

Plans are afoot to open a police station in Pu値iyangku値am too.

The keen interest and involvement of Buddhist clergy in the above activities of the government has raised suspicion of their intentions among Vanni IDPs.
