Jaffna UN branch to close

All UN branch offices in the Jaffna District are to be closed during the course of 2013, reliable sources from Jaffna said. Accordingly, the implementation of the projects undertaken by the agencies of the UN branch offices is due to be wound up before the end of the year. Non-receipt of funds for the projects implemented by the Agencies is said to be the reason for closing down these offices.Demining activities, providing relief to the displaced persons, are some of the tasks undertaken by the UN in the Jaffna District. The resettlement programme has not been properly executed and closing of UN relief measures would result in aggravating the plight confronted by the displaced people, a Jaffna-based newspaper charged.
