IDPs seek permission to resettle in Champoor, Moothoor east

[TamilNet, Saturday, 28 July 2007, 12:20 GMT]
Moothoor Displaced Welfare Association (MDWA) has sought permission from the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Eastern Regional commander Major General Parakrama Pannipitya to resettle in their houses and lands located in Moothoor east and Champoor which have been declared high security zones by the government. More than 1800 displaced now sheltered in several temporary structures in Batticaloa district have signed the memorandum sent to the SLA, sources said.

The IDPs have stated in the memorandum that according to the constitution of Sri Lanka they are legally entitled to enter Champoor and Moothoor east to resettle and restart their occupation once again.

The IDPs fled from Moothoor east and Champoor last year following the military operation launched by the SLA leaving their houses, belongings and cattle and other valuable properties.

Since then they have been staying in temporary shelters in Batticaloa district and running their day to day life with relief provided by non-governmental and government organizations.
