Navy should completely move out of Thiriyai - Sampanthan

[TamilNet, Thursday, 13 June 2002, 22:33 GMT]
"The Sri Lanka Navy should vacate Thiryai village completely, enabling the displaced Tamil families to resettle in the area. No resettlement or rehabilitation is possible with the presence of a large number of SLN personnel in the village," said Mr.R.Sampanthan, Trincomalee district parliamentarian, speaking at a conference held Wednesday evening at the office of the Kuchchaveli Divisional Secretariat.

"The State armed forces should have started to leave schools, places of worship, government and public buildings they occupy from the day the government signed a cease-fire agreement with the Liberation Tigers and this should be concluded within 160 days," Mr. Sampanthan said. "But in the Trincomalee district, especially at Thiriyai village, the Sri Lanka Navy has not started any steps to remove their main camp from the school they occupy even after one hundred and ten days have passed."

Meanwhile, Mr.Sampanthan, LTTE's district political secretary Mr.A.Ruban and several local government officials met at Nilaveli to plan out future strategy to be taken in regard to the resettlement of displaced families in Thiriyai.

The Project Director of Resettlement and Rehabilitation of the Trincomalee district secretariat, Mr.N.Puhendran, has been entrusted with the work to prepare a plan for the rehabilitation of the destroyed Thiriyai village in all spheres.
