Sri Lankan state shows ‘reconciliation’ in the country of Eezham Tamils

[TamilNet, Saturday, 05 March 2011, 15:09 GMT]
Sri Lanka military occupying the Tamil country opened a new fort and an extensive military base on Friday at Koappaay in Jaffna, over the graves and memorials of the heroes who laid down their lives to the cause of the liberation of Eezham Tamils. The Chinese helped the occupying SL military to raze down the Maaveerar Thuyilumidam (the resting place of the heroes) and to build the fortress at that very premises for the occupying Army to tread on it. The resident of the king of Jaffna was at Koappaay during the times of the Kingdom of Jaffna. The Portuguese destroyed it in the 17th century. The US State Department coined the word 'reconciliation' but Colombo is writing the meaning for the word, commented a Tamil politician in Jaffna.

Sri Lanka’s military commander Jagath Jayasuriya, accompanied by SL colonial commander in Jaffna, the ‘Asian Peace Laureate’ Mahinda Hathurusinghe, opened the new fortress, which will serve as the headquarters of the 51 Division of the colonial military occupying Jaffna.

The SL military portrayed the opening of the new fortress as great favour it is doing to the people of Jaffna, as the military occupying a tourist hotel in the heart of the Jaffna city will now be shifted to the new fortress.
