Govt, TNA for structured dialogue

3 February 2011 07:00 pm - 3     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The government and the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) on Thursday decided to continue with ‘a structured regular dialogue’ on constitutional changes for ethnic reconciliation and lasting peace.

However, the joint statement issued after the talks did not elaborate on any of the issues discussed. 
TNA National List MP M.A. Sumanthiran said that it was agreed to continue with the dialogue on constitutional matters case by case in an orderly fashion. 

However, he declined to give further details about these issues to be taken up in future meetings.

He said the government made available to them a lot of information with regard to the resettlement of people in the High Security Zones (HSZ) in the North and Sampur, political prisoners and ex LTTE combatants held in rehabilitation centres.

TNA MP Suresh Premachandran said the government responded positively to its request for the dismantling of the HSZs.  Mr. Premachandran said the government informed them about a data base available with the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) office in Vavuniya on ex LTTE cadres. He said parents and relatives of these LTTE members could access this centre for information.(KB)

    What's so wrong about HSZ? comparing the situation two years ago. It's too early to do away with HSZs.
