JHU: Thousands Of Displaced Sinhalese In The North

Oct 14, 2010 7:30:01 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The JHU has said that more than 150,000 Sinhalese families have been displaced in the North and East due to the war.

JHU Leader Ven. Omalpe Sobitha Thero has been quoted in the BBC as saying that more than 150 Sinhalese families are stranded in the Alfred Duraiyappa stadium and Railway Station in Jaffna, as they have not been allowed to settle in their lands.

The JHU has said that the displaced Sinhalese families have necessary legal documentation to prove ownership to their lands.

However, Resettlement Minister Milroy Fernando has said that he was not aware of displaced Sinhalese families being stranded in Jaffna.
