With the resettlement of the last group of Internally Displaced People  in the Northern region’s Mullaitivu district the Menik Farm in Vavuniya would be closed today.

Security Forces Commander, Major General Boniface Perera, who is the Competent Authority for IDPs in the Northern region said a total of 1,186 people from 361 families --the last of a group of more than 300 thousand displaced during the war in the north -- will leave the Vavuniya Manik Farm to their original places of residence in the Mullaitivu district today.

He added that the military would continue to assist the resettled people to build their houses and commence their livelihoods.
