SLA restricts movement of IDPs in Kodikaamam Camp

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 February 2011, 12:43 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army has instructed outsiders to get prior permission from its sentry points to visit the uprooted civilians from Vanni staying in Kodikaamam Ramaavil IDP camp in Thenmaraadchi, Jaffna. The inmates who were earlier allowed to leave camps and work without any restriction, are from this week onwards have been instructed to register themselves with SLA sentry point, before leaving for work and after their return.

Around two thousand people uprooted from Ki'linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts and areas in the Vadamaradchchi East are still staying in this camp as they are not allowed to resettle in their areas.

Outsiders who want to visit them are also directed to report to the sentry point and obtain permission to enter the camp.

The same procedure is being followed by the workers of the government sector and non-governmental organizations.

Relief to the inmates of the welfare centres has been drastically reduced. Hence the inmates are forced to earn for their survival by doing odd works.
