Trinco airstrip, a canard to justify Muttur embargo- Elilan

[TamilNet, Monday, 06 June 2005, 19:20 GMT]
Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Monday brought to the notice of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) that reports published in a section of the media quoting a report from the state intelligence agency that LTTE is engaged in constructing an airstrip in Sampoor, Muttur east, is a figment of imagination, sources said.

Mr.Elilan said that the army has concocted the airstrip story to justify the economic embargo imposed on the residents of the LTTE controlled Muttur east villages.

The report said the airstrip is under construction in Thakaravadi in Sampoor. There was no such place called Thakaravadi in Sampoor, Mr.Elilan said.

Mr.Elilan said that he urged the SLMM should investigate the matter and make public its findings, according to sources.

Currently SLA has banned Muttur east residents from transporting cement, building materials and fuel from the army controlled areas. Villagers recently held several demonstrations demanding the removal of the economic embargo.
