September 2006: workers cannot access the site anymore.
To access the site, they needed to cross a Tamil controlled area but the crossing of non cingalese population is not allowed.
Site is finally abandoned.
From this moment on it is not clear what happened next.
Houses were certainly occupied by soldiers who used them as a shelter and as a temporary billet when required.
Meanwhile without anyone to look after the houses, these were ransacked and all valuable components such as tiles, doors, windows and frames were stolen.
Federico Stella’s dream was now far from becoming a reality.
Work started again on recovering 23 houses.
