Encouraged by US appeasement, SL military strengthens genocidal grip on North

[TamilNet, Friday, 15 July 2016, 23:51 GMT]
The occupying Sinhala military of genocidal Sri Lanka has put up new fences to consolidate the military-seized lands of Eezham Tamils in Valikaamam North in Jaffna within the last three days while the visiting US State Secretary for South Asia Ms Nisha Biswal was trading off international justice and human rights with ‘security’ and maritime military-to-military cooperation with the unitary ‘Sri Lanka’ during her visit to Colombo this week. The SL military consolidation in the lands seized from Eezham Tamils in Valikaamam North reminds Tamils how Israel fenced off Palestinian territories in the Middle East, commented Tamil rights activists in North. The latest move, accompanied with tricky deceptions, have dashed all hopes for proper resettlement in the villages of uprooted Eezham Tamils, said Subramaniyam Nagendraseelan, the secretary of Valikaamam North Rehabilitation Society.

The occupying Sinhala military has put up fences along the road infrastructure to keep their prying eyes on resettling Tamils.

The SL military is installing new concrete structures during the last three days.

While keeping the most resourceful fishing village of Mayiliddi under its military corporatism, the occupying SL Navy was attempting deceive the uprooted Tamils from Mayiliddi with a controversial jetty at Keerimalai, Mr Nagendraseelan said.

“Keerimalai is regarded as a holy place for Hindus. Putting up a fishing jetty there is not only a deceptive move, but it also seeks to desecrate the place of worship,” he said.

In the meantime, US Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labour Tom Malinowski, who accompanied the visiting US State Secretary for South Asia, was openly advocating economic-development and reconciliation as going hand-in-hand with each other in ‘Sri Lanka’.

But, what Eezham Tamils in the North and East have been witnessing, under the new regime is an accelerating structural-genocide camouflaged as ‘development’, which is working hand-in-hand with Sinhala militarisation and colonisation targeting strategic areas in the occupied country of Eezham Tamils, responded Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island.

Nisha Biswal, who was visiting Jaffna last time, was visiting the strategic port city of Trincomalee in the Eastern Province this week.
