SL military robs IDP registry from Thellippazhai DS Secretariat

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 21 January 2014, 16:56 GMT]
The occupying Sinhala military in Jaffna on Monday evening entered the Divisional Secretariat of Valikaamam North, situated at Thellippazhai, and robbed the registries containing the details of uprooted civilians from the civil officials at gunpoint. The SL military officers then instructed the DS and his officials not to talk about the incident. Informed sources told TamilNet that the robbery was carried out on the instruction by the new Jaffna commander of the occupying Sinhala military, Maj. Gen. Udaya Perera, who is trying to manipulate the statistics of uprooted people of Valikaamam North, the area where former ‘High Security Zone’ is being transformed into a Sinhala Military Zone by the SL military permanently seizing the fertile lands and properties of the Eezham Tamils.

Deploying the same military tactics he used in Ki'linochchi district for keeping the Eezham Tamils gagged, the SL commander, who has been posted to Jaffna, met the representatives of the uprooted families recently. The people residing in the so-called welfare camps were the only displaced people from Valikaamam North, he told the representatives of the uprooted people.

Only a few people of more than 51,000 persons uprooted from Valikaamam North reside in the so-called welfare camps now. In addition to the majority that resides outside the camps, there is a significant number of uprooted people among the 70,000 Eezham Tamil refugees who are in Tamil Nadu State of India.

Perera had also told the representatives of the uprooted people that there were three different statistics on uprooted people: one maintained by the SL military, one by the uprooted peoples organisations and the other by the civil administration. He wanted to count the number of people in the welfare camps.

He also met with a section of uprooted people in the camps.

“Remember that it is not Ms Navaneetham Pillay or any other international actor, but it is our president Mahinda Rajapaksa and Defence Secretary Gotabahaya Rajapaksa, who would be deciding your fate of resettlement,” he told them.

Udaya Perera was trying to make them accept the quarry lands being offered as alternative lands for their resettlement.
