SL Navy appropriates lands of Muslims in Pulmoaddai

[TamilNet, Thursday, 28 March 2013, 11:40 GMT]
The occupying Sri Lanka Navy in Trincomalee district has appropriated lands belonging to Muslim villagers in Ma'nki'ndimalai, Ponmalai-kudaa, Theaththaatheevu and Veerantheevu in Pulmoaddai village that comes under the Kuchchave'li DS division in Trincomalee district. SLN sources say that these lands are urgently needed to construct camps. The villagers who were displaced during the war, who now want to resettle in their villages, are being prevented by the Sinhala Navy that tells them to find alternative places.

The parliamentary group leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and parliamentarian of the Trincomalee district Mr. R. Sampanthan on Wednesday visited the villages in question and met the representatives of the local Muslim community.

He was told that they were displaced in the war and now they want to resettle in these villages.

The Sri Lanka Navy that has already a camp in the area now wants to establish more camps.

When the matter was brought to the notice of the Chief Minister of the Eastern Provincial Council Mr. Najeeb Abdul Majeed, had directed them to the provincial director of lands, the villagers told Mr Sampanthan.
