The Norwegian Embassy in Colombo has contributed NOK 3 million (approximately Rs.57 million) to support the International Organisation for Migration’s (IOM) programme that is assisting reintegration and reconciliation of former LTTE cadres into their own society. 
 
A signing ceremony between Norwegian Ambassador Hilde Haraldstad and IOM Chief of Mission Mr. Richard Danziger took place today (November 2) the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Colombo.

Announcing the contribution at the signing ceremony, the Norwegian Ambassador emphasised the importance of social and economic reintegration of ex-cadres of the LTTE. Ms. Haraldstad remarked “It is important to assist them to return home and to start a new life. The IOM programme is geared to meet their urgent needs and will provide the ex-cadres with a foundation from which they can start a livelihood and rebuild their lives.”
 
The IOM programme for reintegration of former cadres of LTTE has been implemented since 2009. It is designed to support longer term peace and human security needs both at the individual and community level by supporting the reintegration of former cadres both economically and socially. IOM has already provided direct assistance to more than 3000 former LTTE cadres, enabling them to start new livelihoods, by providing training, tools, small grants and job placement.

    Cool, but we must monitor them with extreme care. We all know their role so called "peace observers".
