SLA builds camp in Chithampara College Grounds

[TamilNet, Sunday, 01 June 2003, 12:01 GMT]
Residents in Valvettiturai (VVT) in the northern shores of Jaffna said that the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has begun construction of a camp in the sports grounds belonging to Chithampara College Saturday, according to local press reports.

Civil organizations and Fisheries Union are organizing to stage a protest against the camp at Sunday 10 am.

Heavy machinery and steel girders were seen being moved into the grounds, reports said.

Sources said that SLA used to have a camp in the same premises before the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and the Government of SriLanka (GoSL). The camp was removed after the signing of the MoU.
