On the eve of the Sinhala and Hindu New Year; the most significant cultural festival for both Hindus and Buddhists in the country, one hundred and eight more ex-LTTE combatants who successfully underwent government’s rehabilitation programme for a couple of months joined their families on Wednesday (07.04.2010) after a brief ceremony organized in this effect by the Bureau of Commissioner General Rehabilitation (BCGR) at Thelippalai rehabilitation centre.

To ensure economical stability of their futur life, the BCGR, with assistance of a few INGOs, NGOs and state-run vocational training agencies based in Jaffna, provided vocational training on different trades to those rehabilitees at the centre itself before they were released for reintegration.

The function was graced by Commander Security Forces Headquarters-Jaffna (SFHQ-J) Major General Mahinda Haturusinghe as Chief Guest, who, on his arrival, was received by two small girls living at the Thelippalai Protective Accommodation and Rehabilitation Centre with their mothers.

Forty seven males, eleven females and seven disable persons included the latest batch released for reunification with their families waiting to celebrate the oncoming New Year cultural festival with their loved ones. In addition, forty three girls qualified for University education were also handed over to Vice Chancellor of the Jaffna university through their relatives. Government, thorough BCGR, has already arranged facilities needed for them to continue with their higher education at the University of Jaffna.

Maj. Gen. Mahinda Haturusinghe before addressing the gathering of rehabilitees and their relatives distributed certificates issued to beneficiaries by the BCGR withregard to their skill improvement training.

Jaffna District Secretary Mr. K. Ganesh, Commissioner General Rehabilitation Brigadier Sudantha Ranasinghe, Vice Chancellor of the Jaffna University Prof. N. Shanmugalingam, Brigadier General Staff of SFHQ-J Brig. B.C.J.A.F. Rodrigo, Brigadier Administration and Quartering of SFHQ-J Brig. V.N. Coswatte and a few other civil administrative and military officers were among those who were present on the occasion.
