SLA harasses resettled IDPs in Vanni

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 09 March 2010, 11:21 GMT]
Vanni Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) allowed to resettle in some areas in Ki値inochchi and Mannaar districts are being subjected to severe restrictions and harassment by occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA), sources close Jaffna Bishop's House said. This information was gathered from the group of Catholic Bishops of six districts who visited the said areas in Ki値inochchi and Mannaar recently, the sources said. The Bishops, however, are reluctant to officially disclose this situation in Vanni due to fear, the sources added.

Rt. Rev. Thomas Saundaranayagam, Jaffna Bishop, Rt. Rev. Harold Antony Perera, Kurunagala Bishop, Rt. Rev. Vincent Fernando, Badulla Bishop, Rt. Rev. Clister Perera, Ratnapura Bishop, Rt. Rev. Valence Mendis, Chilaw Bishop, Rt. Rev. Antony Victor Soosai, Mannaar Bishop were the members of the group that visited Vanni recently.

The group was accompanied by representatives of various non-government organizations including Human Development Centre (HUDEC).

The resettled IDPs live surrounded by military, robbed of their freedom of expression and free movement, the sources said. They are not allowed to get out of their dwellings in the nights, they added.

Meanwhile, Ki値inochchi Government Agent, probably due to government pressure, says that all the IDPs of Ki値inochchi have been allowed to settle in their properties.

Travel through A9 road is the only thing allowed through Ki値inochchi while there are only around 10 retail shops of Muliti-purpose Co-operative Society in Ki値inochchi, the sources said.

Meanwhile, urgent relief goods including solar powered electric lamps were distributed to the IDPs lodged in Ki値inochchi Ira地ai Maathaa Church with CORD financial aid under the guidance of HUDEC.

The resettled IDPs in Vanni are in great need of assistance urgently, the sources added.
