Chennai, Dec 14 (ANI): Activists of the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) a regional party, staged a demonstration here on Monday demanding the Sri Lankan Government to speed-up resettlement of the Tamil civilians displaced by civil war in that country.

The demonstrators appealed to the international community to announce former Srilankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe and former Army Chief Sarath Fonseka as war criminals.

Speaking on the occasion VCK president Thol Thirumavalavan said : Ranil Wickramasinghe and Fonseka are playing political role, political play. They are not pro Tamils so we accuse Fonseka also for war crimes."

In Srilanka's northern tip Jafna over 300,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) are living in camps. Though the Sri Lankan Government settled more than half of them but still 110,000 are remaining in camps. (ANI)
