Government plans to hold Vanni IDPs in camps for longer period

[TamilNet, Sunday, 23 August 2009, 17:20 GMT]
Northern Provincial Council (NPC) has instructed government authorities to set up offices in Vavuniyaa and its surrounding area to carry out the administration of Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts in Vanni which had ceased to function due to the war on Vanni, sources in Vavuniyaa said. Though it is said that the above decision has been taken due to Sri Lanka Army (SLA) refusal to resettle Vanni Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in their own villages in the near future, the real intention of the government is to hold the Vanni IDPs in the detention camps permanently, the sources added.

Government has directed high officials of the NPC to take action to set up temporary buildings along with the government offices in Vavuniyaa to house the government administrative structures of Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts.

Besides, all government officials who had been serving in Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts and given temporary permission to serve in Jaffna district and other areas have been instructed to immediately return to Vavuniyaa to assume duties.

The temporary permission granted to the above government officials has been cancelled with immediate effort, the sources said.

Though some high government officials had visited Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts with the intention of reactivating the administrative structures their efforts had been blocked by SLA.

As SLA refuses to allow Vanni IDPs to be resettled in their villages, government is making plans to hold the IDPs in the detention camps permanently by relocating the entire government administrative structures to Vavuniyaa, the sources said.
