Another batch consisting of 1000 rehabilitated LTTE cadres who are in their early twenties are to be released into society this month in Vavuniya, according to the Ministry of Rehabilitation and Prisons Reforms.

“We have not been given a date and we plan to release around 1000 ex combatants who successfully underwent rehabilitation,” Commissoner General of Rehabilitation Major General Nandana Rajaguru said.

He said that after their release around 1500-2000 cadres will be left. These cadres most of them who were hard core members are undergoing rehabilitation following chargers filed against them in courts.

Presently the cadres in the rehabilitation process are undergoing a final test in mason skills, handicraft work and paintings as well as  vocational, language and communication training to improve their skills and their educational knowledge.

According to the Ministry so far 7969 out of 11,700 surrendered LTTE cadres, have been released and further 2879, are being rehabilitated in camps. A sum of Rs.750 million has been allocated for the rehabilitation process for this year. (Supun Dias)

    The use of some very emotional and warming words such as rehabilitation, Humanitarian operation, Prevention of terrorism, National security and many more such as these are used in today's world with no meaning at all except to warm the hearts of the public and given them a false sense of security.
