SLA constructs Maximum HSZ in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 04 February 2010, 04:35 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Jaffna has begun constructing an earthen dam in an area encompassing Kaangeasanthu’rai and Keerimalai in Valikaamam North as part of the new Maximum High Security Zone (MHSZ) Wednesday, sources in Jaffna said. 20 Village Officer (VO) divisions of the 27 VO divisions occupied as SLA High Security Zone (HSZ) in Valikaamam North are to be turned into the new MHSZ, the sources added.

Basil Rajapakse, the brother and Senior Advisor of President Mahinda Rajapakse, prior to the presidential election, had promised the residents evicted by SLA in Valikaamam North that they will be permitted to resettle in their houses.

Minister Douglas Devananda too had made similar promises.

The evicted residents have been living for the past twenty years in camps and the houses of relatives or friends.

Whatever hope they had of being resettled in their own lands now appears impossible with the SLA constructing the new MHSZ.

The residents of seven VO divisions declared as HSZ in Valikaamam had been permitted to visit their lands and properties during the day time only.

The residents are not allowed to stay overnight in their houses.
