Over a year after Kilinochchi was
liberated from the LTTE, the Sri Lankan Army on Tuesday started the
process of resettling Tamil civilians displaced due to the war
in the former de-facto capital of the Tamil Tigers.
Sri Lanka plans to set up free trade zones in former LTTE bastions of Kilinocchchi and Tricomalee to give a push to opportunities of trade and investment in the conflict-torn northern and eastern regions.
Tamils who are being resettled in
Wanni will now be able to knock at the doors of the Sri Lankan
system of justice after the defeat of the LTTE as the
government has decided to set up courts in the region.
