Displaced find others in their homes

[TamilNet, Friday, 14 June 2002, 11:22 GMT]
People displaced from Manpity in Navanthurai are unable to return to their homes because the Ministry of Rehabilitation has settled other people into their homes, which were originally constructed by the Housing Authority as a housing scheme for fishermen.

During the mass exodus from Jaffna in 1995, many families living in Manpity were displaced to the Vanni. But the Ministry of Rehabilitation has settled new families in these homes, and the previous residents continue to be homeless and destitute, they lament.

The families have requested the Ministry of Rehabilitation to provide them with housing, the Uthayan reported on Thursday.
