SLA opens ‘luxury’ resort in occupied Tamil land

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 05 October 2010, 18:31 GMT]
A ‘tourist resort’ owned and managed by Sri Lanka Army was opened at Kaangkeasanthu’rai in the occupied ‘High Security Zone’ in the Jaffna Peninsula on Monday by Colombo’s Army commander Jagath Jayasuriya. The resort bears a Sinhala name ‘Thalsevana’. The HSZ there was created after evacuating several ancient villages of Tamils. On Sunday, the Army rejected all possibilities of resettling the displaced. The Army didn’t permit the re-opening of a Central College in the zone either. If a tourist resort could be opened there by the army, what is the meaning of continuing the area as HSZ, asked a person who is unable to even visit his house and land there. While Sri Lanka teaches new lessons to the world on genocide, there are some ‘responsible’ global bigwigs who advise Tamils not to call a spade, a spade, he further said.

The ‘holiday resort’ having 9 luxury rooms and 22 semi-luxury rooms was declared open for the public to experience comfort at ‘very reasonable rates’ says the army website.

The army gets money to build tourist resorts in occupied land while the Tamils victimised by them in the war are in internment camps or in shanties.

Donors give money to Colombo to build military cantonments in the occupied land. In fact many of them compete in giving money to Colombo. But when it comes to rehabilitating Tamils they want the diaspora to do it, that too through Colombo.
