Eight ex-LTTE combatants who were rehabilitated in Punthottam Camp in Vavniya were ceremoniously released today.

The liberation ceremony was held under the patronage of Rehabilitation Commissioner Major General Janaka Rathnayake.

Witnessing the happiness of ex-cadres in reunion with families, the Major General stated that around 99% of them in the camp have already been discharged from the rehabilitation camp.

Vavniya  Punthottam Camp accommodated over 12,000 former LTTE cadres since the end of civil war. By today, only 20 more remain in the camp reaching the modest rehabilitation level to be released into the society.
