IDPs accuse SLA soldiers of plundering their properties in Ki値inochchi

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 March 2010, 05:25 GMT]
Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Pachchilaippa値値i Divisional Secretariat area in Ki値inochchi district who had been to their places accused occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers of plundering their properties and taking the spoils in their vehicles to South during night time. Parts of houses like doors, door frames, windows and felled valuable timber are being taken away to the South by the soldiers, they said. Besides, the fertile coconut plantations in the area which remain unaffected by war are being plundered and the proceeds take to Jaffna peninsula by the soldiers, they further said.

The government has permitted resettlement only in four Village Officers (VO) divisions in Pachchilaippa値値i Divisional Secretariat area while the rest fourteen divisions are not allowed for resettlement.

Only half the number of residents in the four VO divisions has been permitted to resettle in their properties.

This area include Iyakkachchi, Koayilvayal, Mukaavil, Masaal, Chearanpattu, Tharmakkea地i, Allippazhai, Thampakaamam in Pachchilaippa値値i East and Kachchaalve値i, Arasarkea地i, Veampodukea地i, Iththaalai, Mukamaalai, Ki値aali in Pachchilaippa値値i West.

Most of the above places except Mukamaalai and Ki値aali were not affected by war and people had been living there until the final stages of the war.

Though there may be the danger of landmines in Mukamaalai and Ki値aali the motive of not allowing resettlement in the other areas is to continue the plunder, the IDPs said.
