SLA builds camp in de-mining showcase

[TamilNet, Friday, 09 January 2004, 09:01 GMT]
The Sri Lanka army is constructing a new camp in the Kandalkaadu area of Sarasaalai in Jaffna. The region was often presented as a singular showcase for the prolonged de-mining projects supported by the UNDP and the US army in Jaffna. The Federation of Public Organisations in Thenmaradchi on Friday condemned the construction of the new garrison. “Sarasaalai is going to be unsafe again”, a spokesperson for the Federation said.

Twelve families have resettled in that part of Sarasaalai near Kandalkaadu, according to him. Construction work on the garrison started on Wednesday, according to residents of the area. Sarasaalai is situated on the road from Nunavil (on the western outskirts of Chavakachcheri town) to Nelliyadi in the Vadamaradchi division of Jaffna.
