In a 24 April 1995 letter faxed to the DIRB, Information Monitor in Colombo states that "the Ministry of Rehabilitation did relocate Tamil civilians from the Negombo area to the Mannar mainland in 1994". The same source also states that these relocations "took place some time after the re-opening of the Open Relief Centre in Madhu (Mannar District) run by the UNHCR [United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees]".

This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
