Public protest against SLA interference in civil administration in Ki値inochchi

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 24 November 2010, 11:44 GMT]
Welfare associations and public organizations in Karaichchi in Ki値inochchi district gathered in protest Wednesday morning in front of Ki値inochchi Government Agent痴 office demanding immediate cancellation of the sudden transfer of Karaichchi Divisional Secretary, Ms. Sivakumar, issued on the request of local Sri Lanka Army (SLA) officials, sources in Ki値inochchi said. Ms. Sivakumar had not cooperated with the SLA officials in their efforts to evacuate the resettled families in lands in Karaichchi which the SLA authorities want to claim for SLA and Sinhala colonization, the sources said. She had been transferred within two hours of her refusal to comply with the evacuation plans of the SLA officials, the sources added.



Ms. Sivakumar had been vey prompt and efficient in looking after the needs of the rehabilitated families in Karaichchi, the protestors said.

Recently, Ki値inochchi Zonal Director of Education T. Kurukualrajah had been issued with a sudden transfer order alleged to have originated by officials who support Sri Lanka government.

His transfer, however, was cancelled due to the strong protests of the heads of schools in Ki値inochchi district. He is allowed to serve in Ki値inochchi until his retirement that is due shortly.

Meanwhile, SLA authorities in Ki値inochchi had threatened 18 Tamil families in Irathinapuram where they were each given 5 acres of land to live in 1994 by Sri Lanka government for which they have the documents proving ownership. SLA now claims that a Sinhala school had been located in the said area and therefore the land belongs to the government. SLA further says that it wants the land to be used as cattle grazing ground, the families said.

The protestors said that they will continue with their agitation until the transfer of Ms. Sivakumar is cancelled.
