SLA plundered vehicle spare parts in Vanni sold in Anuradhapura

[TamilNet, Monday, 24 May 2010, 19:57 GMT]
Anuradhapura has turned into the main ‘spare parts sales town’ in Sri Lanka as the spare parts of vehicles abandoned in Mu’l’livaaikkaal in Vanni, plundered by Sri Lanka Army (SLA), are being taken to Anuradahapura along A9 road in trucks and vehicles which bring goods to North, according to Suresh Premachandran, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Jaffna parliamentarian. He further alleged that the spare parts of the vehicles of Vanni civilians systematically plundered by SLA soldiers immediately after the war are kept hidden in bunkers with the collaboration of their officers and that the parts are gradually passed on to Southern Sinhalese and Muslim traders to be sold in Anuradhapura.



The government, to show the world that it is giving back the abandoned vehicles to uprooted Vanni civilians, had recently announced that nearly a thousand motorcycles are to be given back to the owners on claim.

But the said motorcycles are useless without the key parts missing, sources in Vavuniyaa said.

Meanwhile, it remains a mystery of the fate of thousands of four-wheeled vehicles left behind in Vanni.

It is suspected that they had been taken out of Vanni by SLA immediately after the war ended.

The uprooted owners of the vehicles have lost all hopes of getting them back despite government propaganda.
