Norwegian Ambassador visits Tsunami devastated Mulaiteevu


The Norwegian Ambassador in Colombo, Hans Brattskar toured Tsunami affected Mullaitivu area and visited Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) managed transit centers housing Tamil refugees.

The Ambassador was able to witness firsthand the grim reality faced by Tsunami victims. Almost a year on they are still relying on the TRO for their day to day lives and are still living in transition shelters constructed to last no more than six months.

The Mulaiteevu district has been fully liberated from military occupation and hence receives no aid from the Government of Sri Lanka.

The PTOMs agreement for the equitable distribution of international Tsunami aid in the Tamil homeland was blocked by extremist elements in southern Sri Lanka.
