SLA extends HSZ in Ki'linochchi encroaching traditional Tamil villages

[TamilNet, Monday, 16 August 2010, 17:28 GMT]
Sri Lanka government has instructed the Government Agents of Ki'linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts not to resettle anyone in an area of 200 acres in the adjoining traditional Tamil villages of the already declared area as the High Security Zone (HSZ) of occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in an extent of 300 acres in Ira'naimadu in Vanni, Ki'linochchi Government Secretariat sources said. The 500 acres of land encroached by SLA are to be used to colonize it with Sinhala families of SLA personnel from South and other Sinhala families, depriving the Tamil residents of the area from cultivating their paddy fields irrigated by Ira'naimadu reservoir, sources in Vanni said.

SLA had already appropriated tradition Tamil villages from Muruka'ndi to Mullaiththeevu, east of A9 road where 12,000 houses are being constructed for the families of SLA personnel.

Similarly, to the west of A9 road in Kokkaavil, a housing scheme is being created for colonizing Sinala families from South in the traditional Tamil villages.

Ira'naimadu area, which has been declared as HSZ of the SLA is now the seat of the SLA Commandment in Vanni and it is in this area Sri Lanka President held his cabinet meeting recently.

The runway of Liberation Tigers in Ira'naimadu has been developed into the military runway of Sri Lanka government.
