HSZ people less likely to get their lands back

[TamilNet, Sunday, 11 September 2011, 11:08 GMT]
With the so-called lifting of emergency, a rosy picture was painted by some Colombo-based ‘peace’ groups and lawyers that the SL government cannot keep the High Security Zones anymore. But the SL government now plans to permanently ‘acquire’ private lands where the HSZs are now located. According to SL Justice minister Rauff Hakeem, if there is any need to retain HSZs in some areas, then the government would acquire the land ‘legally’ and the affected people will be relocated, Sunday Times reported.

The HSZs are needed not only for the bases of the occupying military but also to build new military-run commercial ventures and enclaves of Sinhala colonies in potential parts of the peninsula.

A complex of that nature is already in the making near Maathakal. Sri Lanka ‘grease devils’ have recently escalated their attacks in this locality.

Among the HSZs in the peninsula, the one at Valikaamam is in the priority list of the establishment in New Delhi too.
