[TamilNet, Wednesday, 01 September 2010, 02:30 GMT]
1215 uprooted civilians from Vanni brought from the camps three months ago in the name of resettlement are held without any help in Visuvamadu area in Mullaiththeevu district, Suresh Premachandran, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP, who visited them Monday told media. Mullaiththeevu district Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities do not allow them to settle in their own lands in the district and the people abandoned by government authorities and humanitarian organizations are subjected to untold hardships. The families say that they will look after themselves if only they are allowed to settle in their own properties, the MP said.

255 uprooted families consisting of 1215 persons belonging to Kumaarasamipuram, Mayilvaakanapuram and Kozhunththuppilavu villages in Visuvamadu area were brought from Vavuniyaa SLA camps in June 2010.

69 families of Kumaarasaamipuram are lodged in Redbana area and the other families of Mayilvaakanapuram and Kozhunththuppilavu are staying in a school.

The destitute families are not supplied rice under the World Food Program and without any source of income they suffer various difficulties in finding food, Suresh Premachandran said.

SLA does not permit them to go to their own lands just a few meters away and those who go are severely punished.

Women are the most affected in these places without latrines or other basic facilities and the water in the only well in Redbana area is not fit for drinking purposes. The local health authorities have done nothing to improve the conditions, Suresh Premachandran said.
