[TamilNet, Friday, 12 October 2012, 20:07 GMT]
Sri Lankan government officials in Colombo have instructed the divisional secretary of Moothoor to hand over a play ground, about four acres in extent, situated at the centre of several villages in Champoor area to the occupying SL police, civil officials told media. The Moothoor DS is the sole authority of the playground. The Divisional Secretary has handed over the playground for the use of the SL police camped at Champoor without seeking the consent of the people of the area and the school administration.

Before the fall of Moothoor East in to the hands of Sri Lanka Army in the year 2006, the villages Cheanai-yoor, Kaddai-pa'raichchaan, Chaalaiyoor, Chanthoashapuram, Amman Nakar, Kanesapuram, Chantha'na-veddai, Champoor, Kooniththeevu, Choodaik-kudaa, Navaratnapuram, Ilakkanthai, Veeramaanakar, Paaddaa'li-puram, Nalloor, Iththik-ku'lam, Chinnak-ku'lam, Srinivasa-puram, Pa'l'lik-kudiyiruppu and Thangka-puram were under the LTTE administration. The said playground is situated in the middle of these villages.

The said land was cleared and used as a playground in 1948 under the administration of the then Kaddai-pa'richchaan Village Council. With the introduction of Piratheasa Chapai (PS) system the playground was taken over by the Divisional Secretariat.
