Sinhalicisation insinuated in Musali

[TamilNet, Friday, 19 June 2009, 09:45 GMT]
Top Sri Lankan military officials appointed by SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa as Competent Authority in charge of resettlement of Tamils displaced from Vanni have finalised a plan to settle 200 Sinhalese people in Musali where 2,000 displaced Tamils have been allowed to resettle, informed civil officials in Vavuniyaa told TamilNet Friday. More than 4,500 civilians were forced to flee Musali division in Mannnaar district in September 2007.

The Sinhalicisation of the traditional Tamil homeland is viewed as a form of ‘structural genocide’ of Tamils.

Chief-of-Staff of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Maj. Gen. G.A. Chandrasiri was appointed as the Competent Authority Officer in charge of resettlement of Tamils from Vanni in April 2009.

There are 20 GS areas in Musali division that comprises 474.2 square kilometers.
