More Families Resettled at Keeramalai
[Updated :: 2010-12-02 15:20:05 Hours]  

Security Forces Headquarters Jaffna (SF-J) on directives of the Army Headquarters took steps early this week to release some more lands at Keeramamli for the civilians who were original settlers there.

Those blocks of lands were within the restricted zone due to the threat of landmines and other unexploded ordnance which made the area risky for civilians and their movements. During the past few months Army Engineers together with foreign de-mining agencies tirelessly worked on removing the explosives and handed over the land to civil administrative authorities Jaffna to implement resettlement.

A total of 3947 people of 970 families were resettled in the de-mined area which covered three Grama Seva Divisions, Elavalai North, Elavalai West and Withthakapuram.

A special ceremony chaired by Hon. Minister of Traditional Industries and Small Enterprises Mr. Douglas Devananda was held at Nagulaeshwaram Kovil ground on 27th November to donate Rs. 5000/= to each family to be resettled.

Admiring the untiring service of de-miners of Army Engineers, Hallo Trust and Danish De-mining Group, certificates were given away to them by Hon. Minister and guests. Soldiers in the meantime distributed leaflets among the civilians educating them on landmines and other explosives.

Parliamentarians representing Jaffna District, senior administrative officials, senior Army officers and a large crowd of civilians attended the function.
