Displaced in Pudukudiruppu to be resettled this week

War displaced people in Pudukudiruppu are to be resettled later this week, the Mullaitivu government agent said.

The official had sent out a notice to the displaced staying in temporary homes or with their relatives in Pudukudiruppu saying that they will be resettled on Thursday.

The war displaced people from the area have been told to gather at the Pudukudiruppu central college on Thursday with the relevant documents.

The government had last week said that all the war displaced in the north had been resettled after the Menik Farm IDP camp was closed.

However the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) had raised concerns saying the last remaining war displaced at Menik Farm, who were moved out last week, had been placed at another camp in Mullaitivu. (Colombo Gazette)
