SLN erects mini-camp in Kaaraitheevu in Ampaa’rai district

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 15 December 2009, 02:41 GMT]
More than 20 Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) men are engaged in erecting a mini-camp on the coast of Kaaraitheevu – 3, in Ampaarai district since Sunday, sources in Ampaarai said. A mini police station had been established last month in this same area and the setting up of a SLN mini-camp has caused fear among the local residents. Kaaraitheevu people have complained to Regional Secretary, S. Ramakrishnan and V. Krishnamoorthy, the District Coordinator of National Integration Ministry about the setting up of the SLN mini-camp.

Krishnamoorthy took up this matter with P. Jayasinghe, the SLN officer in charge and told him that the sudden setting up of the mini-camp has caused fear among the people and that it may adversely affect the votes for Mahinda Rajapakse in the forthcoming presidential election.

There are no motor boat fishing in Kaaraitheevu and the fisherman here engage only in coast net fishing, Krishnamoorthy told Jayasinghe.

Jayasinghe informed Krishnamoorthy that SLN is to erect around 40 mini-camps along the eastern coast as a part of the sea surveillance in keeping with orders from higher authorities and that there will be no inconvenience to the residents.

He added that the request will be forwarded to his superiors and their response will be conveyed to Krishnamoorthy.
