SLA forcibly takes 99 IDPs from Pulmoaddai to Vavuniyaa

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 13 October 2009, 15:50 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) forcibly took away ninety-nine internally displaced men between the age of 40 and 50 detained in camps located in Pulmoaddai to Vavuniyaa internment camp in eight vehicles without prior notice. SLA soldiers arrived at Pulmoaddai camp Friday night around 8:00 p.m and through public address system called out the names of ninety-nine IDPs. They were bundled into the vehicles when they came out of the camp in response to the call. They are all heads of families. They are now held in Ne’luku’lam camp in Vavuniyaa, sources in Vavuniyaa said.

But the attempt made by the SLA soldiers to take away pregnant mothers, young women and girls from the camp to Vavuniyaa camp with these IDPs was thwarted due to severe opposition by other inmates of the camp.

These women and girls are now held separately in Pulmoaddai camp.

Remaining IDPs in Pulmoaddai camps are now living in fear of what would happen next to them after the sudden removal of 99 IDPs from Pulmoaddai to Vavuniyaa-Nelukul’am internment camp.
