More than 26,000 displaced people are yet to be allowed to resettle in their ancestral lands occupied by high security zones (HSZ) in Jaffna, according to Sri Lanka's main Tamil political party, the BBC reported.
 

The BBC reported that the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has submitted a report to the Supreme Court (SC) that detailed the HSZs in Jaffna which are still
not made available to the original inhabitants by the Sri Lankan government.

The report was submitted as the SC heard fundamental rights petitions filed by the residents of some HSZs seeking an order for them to resettle in their ancestral lands.

It said over 7000 families were not allowed to resettle in 23 village divisions within the Valikamam Pradesheeya Sabha.The Supreme Court which accepted the report ordered a copy to be handed over to the Attorney General (AG).

The AG was also ordered to inform the court on 04 March on plans for
resettlement.
