Thirukkoayil land Sinhalicised through diaspora transaction

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 07 August 2013, 23:52 GMT]
35 acres of land, known as Muththiah land, is being taken away from the Tamil owners living at the coastal land, news sources in Ampaa'rai said. Around 150 fishermen living in huts are being forced to vacate their lands after Muththiah land is projected as being ‘sold’ to a Sinhalese residing in London. The Sinhalese who purchased the land is engaged in fencing and asking the Tamil fisher families to get out of that land.

The original land owners had gone abroad and settled down in Australia in 1978.

Later, the land was legally distributed to landless Tamil people by the initiative of former parliamentarian and human rights activist, the late Ariyanayagam Chandra Nehru.

Some of the inhabitants of the land were killed in the Tsunami disaster in 2004. Their legal documents were also destroyed in the destruction.

The former TNA parliamentarian was assassinated by the SL military in 2005.

Thereafter, the power of attorney was given to a person, who was working in the State Cadju Corporation. He was supposed to give employment to the Tamil settlers who were encouraged to do cadju cultivation.

But, now the lands have been sold to a Sinhalese living in London, news sources in Ampaa'rai said.
