Sri Lanka Navy disallows resettlement in Naavaladi in Moothor DS

[TamilNet, Sunday, 08 June 2008, 14:38 GMT]
29 Tamil families have been denied permission to resettle in their village Naavaladi in Moothoor DS division in Trincomalee district. These families displaced from Naavaladi in 2006 military operation have been sheltered in a welfare centre in Moothoor town.

A non-governmental organization (NGO) took steps to resettle these families in their own village. A team of officials of the NGO recently went to Naavaladi to make necessary arrangement for resettlement. However they were told by officials of the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) stationed in the village that Naavaladi had been declared security zone and no resettlement is allowed.

Hence the said NGO has been taking steps to settle the families in another village Raalkuzhi, which is also located in Moothoor DS division.
