[TamilNet, Saturday, 31 July 2010, 04:43 GMT]
Occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Vanni has declared the villages of Mayilvaakanapuram and Kumarasaamipuram in Ki’linochchi district not allowed for resettlement as they had been reserved for SLA use, sources in Ki’linochchi said. 140 uprooted families of the two villages brought to be resettled two months back after detention in Vavuniyaa SLA camp by Sri Lankan civil authorities have not been allowed to resettle in their properties.
The uprooted families are forced to live in temporary sheds erected in a bare land without any basic facilities.
They had been detained in Menik farm SLA camp in Vavuniyaa for more than an year.
Having lost all their belongings during the war on Vanni by Sri Lanka government, the families suffer abandoned by Sri Lankan civil authorities.
