      Temporary camps for displaced Muslims in the North

      Temporary camps will be set up in the North to house
      internally displaced Muslims as a first step towards
      re-settling them in their original villages in the
      North.

      This follows a directive by Port Development,
      Shipping, Eastern Development and Muslim Religious
      Affairs Minister Rauff Hakeem to Jaffna GA C.
      Pathmanathan at a conference held at his Ministry on
      Monday.

      Minister Hakeem told the Jaffna GA that when
      re-settling displaced Muslims priority should be given
      towards providing places of worship for them to engage
      in their religious activities and schooling facilities
      for their children.

      A press release issued by the Ministry of Port
      Development and Shipping said that at this conference
      it was decided to set up several temporary residential
      camps, for accommodating displaced Muslims until their
      re-settlement in their villages and to undertake the
      rehabilitation of devastated Muslim schools in the
      North immediately.

      Minister Hakeem also said that aimed to visit the
      North shortly to inspect the present conditions of
      previous Muslim villages in the North and take
      necessary steps to restore them.
