SLA imposes new restrictions on resettled families in Vanni

[TamilNet, Saturday, 14 August 2010, 05:13 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) occupying Vanni has instructed the resettled families not to allow anyone other than the family members to stay with them and not to offer food, sources in Vanni said. The restriction causes great difficulty for the relatives and friends of the resettled families who come a long way from Vavuniyaa, Jaffna and other places to visit them. Meanwhile, a large number of army uniforms had gone missing recently in one of the SLA camps in Mullaiththeevu district in Vanni, the sources said.

Many relatives and friends of the resettled families who had come from the refugee camps in Vavuniyaa and Jaffna had been sent back by SLA.

SLA soldiers had announced the new instructions using loud speakers fitted to their vehicles in villages in Vanni where resettlement had been permitted.

SLA soldiers manning the check posts and sentry points in Vanni too instruct residents not to entertain any others other than their family members in their dwellings.
