The Norwegian Embassy in Colombo has given a major intergovernmental operation three million Norwegian Kroner to reintegrate former Tamil Tiger (LTTE) cadres into society.



Norwegian Ambassador Hilde Haraldstad met with Chief of Mission for the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), Richard Danziger, during a signing ceremony, Wednesday. Both agreed to help ex LTTE influencers move on from their extremist days, and be a benefit towards Sri Lankan society.

Emphasising the importance of ex LTTE cadres cadres of LTTE social and economic reintegration, Ambassador Haraldstad said, “It is important to assist them to return home and to start a new life. The IOM programme is geared to meet their urgent needs and will provide the ex-cadres with a foundation from which they can start a livelihood and rebuild their lives.”

Japan has also agreed to support the programme, contributing USD 1.5 million. Ambassador Nobuhito Hobo stated at the ceremony last week that, “"We are confident that this aid will be effectively utilized to implement worthwhile initiatives to promote social and economic reintegration."

The IOM initiative, launched in 2009, has assisted 3,000 providing training, tools, small grants and job placement to get a fresh start.
