No Access to Tamil Refugees

Tamil refugees

There’s concern that charities and other NGO’s are being prevented from working among Tamil refugees, following the end of the conflict in Sri Lanka.

Swedish MP Kent Härstedt is in Colombo at the invitation of the government there. On Thursday he met the country’s foreign minister, Rohitha Bogollagama. But despite government promises that charities would have access to the 250,000 Tamils in refugee camps, both Oxfam and the Red Cross say they are being prevented from doing their jobs.

Kent Härstedt tells Swedish Radio News that despite his official invitation, he is not being allowed into the refugee camps. Instead he’s been offered a visit to a rehabilitation camp for former Tamil guerrillas.
