Sirisena yet to revoke Gazette notification of Colombo's seizure of Champoor lands

[TamilNet, Monday, 11 June 2018, 14:38 GMT]
The occupying State of genocidal Sri Lanka, particularly SL President Maithiripala Sirisena, has so far avoided revoking the initial Gazette notification through which the previous regime of Mahinda Rajapaksa seized the lands of the uprooted people of Champoor. Three years would have elapsed by August 2018 since the people of Champoor started to resettle in their areas in 2015.

Although SL President revoked the Gazette notifications of allocating the seized lands to the so-called development projects, the resettled people are still not the legal owners of their lands as he is yet to revoke the initial take-over of the properties.

The Divisional Secretariat in Moothoor is unable to re-issue the land documents as the Gazette notification has not been revoked.

As the political situation in the South is also becoming more and more unstable with regards to the question of who is going to seize the ruling power in the coming elections, the uprooted people are demanding Tamil politicians to take up the matter with Colombo and resolve the ownership issue without further delay.

Mr K Thurairatnasingham, a close confidante of Opposition Leader R. Sampanthan and the ITAK national list parliamentarian from Trincomalee, was confronted by the grassroots activists in Champoor when he visited Champoor a few days ago.

The activists questioned him on why the ITAK was not taking up the issue in the SL Parliament. A heated discussion ensued between the parliamentarian and a grassroots activist when the latter questioned whether average people were able to raise the issue in the SL Parliament when their parliamentarians fail to take up the matter.
