Another batch of rehabilitated ex-LTTE cadres to be integrated


The Ministry of Rehabilitation and Prison Reforms has made arrangement to release another batch of former combatants of LTTE to the society.

The Commissioner General of Rehabilitation, Major General Jagath Wijethilake has said that 107 former LTTE cadres who have successfully completed the rehabilitation program at the Maradamadu and Poonthottam rehabilitation centers in Vavuniya will be released today.

After the end of the conflict in 2009, around 11,800 ex-LTTE cadres surrendered to the Sri Lankan security forces.
According to the official only 232 former LTTE cadres will be remained in camps.

The former LTTE cadres undergoing rehabilitation receive vocational training during their rehabilitation program to learn skills that could find them employment once they are reintegrated into the society.

The government has introduced a scheme through a State Bank to provide loans up to a maximum of Rs.250,000 to the 10,375 rehabilitated cadres for self-employment purposes.
