Colombo accelerates genocidal land grab after Geneva resolution

[TamilNet, Monday, 12 May 2014, 23:09 GMT]
The occupying military of genocidal Sri Lanka is seizing further 186 acres of coastal lands for the militarisation of the resourceful coastal stretch in the Jaffna peninsula, reveal notices issued by the Divisional Secretary of Valikaamam North. In the meantime, informed sources in Colombo told TamilNet on Monday that the SLFP parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksas, who is the son of the SL president Mahinda Rajapaksa, has also taken over a large area for corporate exploitation between KKS and Keerimalai. All ‘official’ exchanges have taken place secretely in Colombo for the transfer of lands. The gencoidal land grab is accelerated at the strategic coastal locations in North and East as there was no international condemnation on the structural genocide taking place in the North and East of the island.

At the same time, ‘Patali’ Champika Ranawaka, the extremist Buddhist Monk Party (JHU) minister of ‘Technolology, Research and Atomic Energy’ has also been involved in acquiring the coastal stretch from Sinhalicised ‘Sacred Zone’ of Thiruvadi-nilai towards KKS Harbour, the sources in Colombo told TamilNet.

The SL military and the military-run civil apparatus in both the North and East are also suppressing the voices against genocidal land grab in Valikaamam North and in Champoor in the East.

Earlier, there have also been reports of Sinhala traders acquiring quarry lands near KKS Harbour. The quarrying of limestone has already portended the possibility of seawater coming inside and polluting the entire groundwater table of the peninsula.

More than 6,300 acres of lands have been already seized in Valikaamam North for the transformation of former High Security Zone.

The Tamil National Alliance and legal experts of the civil society in Jaffna have filed legal suits against the approrpriation of the lands in Jaffna and Trincomalee. The TNA has again vowed to approach the SL courts on the latest land grab in Keeri-malai.

There will be no justice through the SL judiciary which has already been used to divide the North and East by the SL State. The SL judiciary has also been further compromised by the ruling Rajapaksa government.
