Tamil lands in Ampaa'rai appropriated for army housing schemes

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 05 December 2012, 17:28 GMT]
The occupying Sri Lanka Army in Ampaa'rai district in the Eastern province has been appropriating lands belonging to Eezham Tamils for the construction of so-called housing schemes for their troops while the uprooted Tamil families languish in tents and with their relatives without basic facilities. Such an occupation scheme is under construction by the occupying army under a programme for the families of dead soldiers in war in the lands that belong to Tamils, close to Malwatte and Ka'napathipuram villages in Chammaanthu'rai DS division.

The ‘100 unit housing project’ is located one and a half km off Pathiyathalawa main road situated close to Malwatte junction.

The lands were brought under the control of the Sri Lanka Army when they set up a camp at SLBC substation in the year 1990.

Tamil people fled from Thiraaykkea'ni (48 killed), Udumpan-ku'lam (128 killed), Veeramunai (33 killed) and Karavahu Thangkavealaayutha-puram following massacre carried out by the occupying Sri Lanka Army with the assistance of Muslim Home guards in that year.
