Some 480 rehabilitated ex-LTTE cadres will be released on April 23, Rehabilitation Commissioner General Brigadier Sudantha Ranasinghe said.

“All of these rehabilitants are married with children. Their release is made to coincide with the Sinhala and Tamil New Year,” Brigadier Ranasinghe said. The rehabilitants are due to be released at the Vavuniya Cultural centre. He also said that New Year celebrations are held for the rehabilitants at all the rehabilitation centers these days.

According to Brigadier Ranasinghe, over 7000 rehabilitated ex-LTTE cadres have been released so far and some 4100 are yet to be released. (Lakna Paranamanna)
