Normalcy returns to displaced Tamils, Muslims in Muttur

[TamilNet, Saturday, 24 May 2003, 12:54 GMT]
Tamil and Muslim residents of Muttur division, south of Trincomalee town who sought refuge in schools, churches and mosques where their security was ensured following the outbreak of violence between the two communities last month, started to return to their own homes this Saturday after one and a half months in the temporary shelters, sources said.

Tamil families living among majority Muslim areas fled to the LTTE held Muttur east villages and stayed in schools there since April 14.

About one hundred and fifty Tamil families staying at Chenaiyoor Central College as refugees returned to their homes at Aalimsenai, Palanagar and Muttur hospital area in three buses escorted by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and Police, Muttur sources said.

This follows the signing of a four point agreement by the leaders of the LTTE and Muttur Majlis Al Shura Council to resolve differences existing between the two communities through a eight member committee appointed by the both parties, sources said.

The first meeting of the committee is to be held on Wednesday at the office of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Trincomalee presided by the SLMM Trincomalee head, sources said.
