[TamilNet, Tuesday, 03 June 2003, 16:59 GMT]
The Assistant High Commissioner of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) Mr.Kamel Morjane is to begin his three-day field trip to Sri Lanka Wednesday, UNHCR sources said.

"His visit is to see first hand what is the situation of remaining displaced and of those who have returned to resettle in their former homes in the past seventeen months," a UNHCR official said.

Mr Morjane works in the UNHCR headquarters in Geneva. His three-day visit to Sri Lanka comes as a prelude to Tokyo donors' conference, sources said.

Mr. Morjane will be visiting the northeast and on his return to Colombo, he has agreed to provide a debriefing to donors, UN agencies and NGOs on his field trip. At the same time he would hear the views of these agencies on facilitating solutions for those refugees and internally displaced who remain displaced, said a UNHCR official.

The debriefing would be held at Colombo Earls Court in Tran Asia Hotel on June 6 evening, sources said.
