IDPs in Moothoor complain to ITAK leaders about their uncertain future

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 10 March 2010, 10:50 GMT]
Trincomalee electoral candidates led by Ilangkai Thamizh Arasuk Kadchi (ITAK) leader Mr. R. Sampanthan, Tuesday visited the camps in Ki’liveddi and Paddiththidal in Moothoor DS division where hundreds of internally displaced Tamil families from Champoor, Kooniththeevu, Choodaikkudaa and Navaratnapuram in the High Security Zones declared by the Sri Lanka Army after the eviction of LTTE in April, 2006, are lodged. The visit by ITAK candidates was a part of their election campaign for the forthcoming general election, sources in Trincomalee said.

Mr. Sampanthan and other candidates were briefed by the IDP families who have not been allowed to return to their native villages in Chaampoor HSZ for security reasons by the SLA about their suffering in camps without adequate basic facilities such as sufficient medical needs and food and water.

They requested the ITAK leader and the other candidates to work for their immediate return to their villages to start livelihood without depending on the inadequate relief provided by the government and to lead normal life once again with self respect and dignity as earlier.
