Call to expeditiously resettle Moothoor IDPs

[TamilNet, Thursday, 09 August 2007, 15:05 GMT]
In a letter addressed to the Minister of Resettlement and Disaster Relief, Abdul Risath Badiyudeen, Wednesday Secretary of Batticaloa District Inter Religious Federation, Mr.K.Kanesh, appealed for assistance to make immediate arrangements to assist civilians displaced from Moothoor to be settled in welfare centres.

The full text of the letter follows:

A large number of civilians from Moothoor forced out of their homes for more than one year ago due to SLA offensives and displaced to Batticaloa district were temporarily accommodated in private homes, due to lack of space in welfare centres. The home owners have started asking the occupants to move out of their residences and as such immediate steps should be taken to resettle them in the welfare centres in the district.

These civilians had earlier been resettled in welfare centres and therefore it will be helpful for them if they are again resettled in these centres.

This matter has been brought to the attention of the officials concerned but they have ignored the request. These civilians have lost their belongings and many lives too have been lost.

There for we appeal to you to assist these people without further delay on humanitarian basis.

A copy of the letter has been forwarded to Batticaloa district Government Agent
