Tamil families uprooted 20 years ago not resettled in Ea'raavoor

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 02 November 2011, 10:46 GMT]
Even though the war ended three years ago in the East, houses and lands belonging to Tamils in Ward Four of Era’voor village in the Era’voorpaththu-Chengkaladi DS division are still under the control of the occupying Sri Lankan forces in the name of High Security Zone. The villagers displaced twenty one years ago in the year 1990. The roads that lead to Tamil settlements located 16 km off Batticaloa city along Batticaloa-Vaalaichchenai highway still remain blocked. SL Resettlement Ministry Secretary A.M.U.D. Basanayake has said that he was in dark regarding the resettlement of uprooted Ea'raavoor Tamil families.

Amid claims by the District Government Agent and Resettlement Deputy Minister that all of the uprooted families have been resettled, Tamil families of Ward Four of Ea'raavoor waiting for resettlement continue to stay elsewhere in rented houses and with relatives and friends.

The appeals made by the villages, both personally and through memorandums to the authorities concerned for immediate resettlement, have been ignored.
