Colombo not prepared to return military-seized lands belonging exiled Tamils

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 10 July 2019, 20:39 GMT]
Suren Raghavan, the SL Governor to North, has told 71-year-old Maheswary Thambirajah, whose lands the occupying SL Army had seized for military purposes, that the properties which she had transferred to her daughters were unlikely to be released back to the rightful owners as they were staying outside the island. The mother of seven met the SL Governor on Wednesday seeking his support to exert pressure on the SL government in Colombo to release her lands back to the rightful owners. The SL Government could only consider providing alternative lands for those who were residing in the island and that too at a distant locality in Vanni, the SL Governor has told the mother.

The occupying SL Army established the main base of its 52 Division in the major part her 54 acres of lands at Mirusuvil near Ezhuthu-madduvaa'l in Jaffna in 2012.

Mrs Thambirajah addressed the press at Jaffna Press Club after meeting the deceptive SL Governor, who is a Tamil person.

Recently, a Sinhala Judge of the SL Court of Appeal in Colombo claimed the military land grab as a matter in relation to “National Security, which need not and should not be discussed and probed openly”.

The Sinhala judge, Mahinda Samayawardhena, was also humiliating the petitioner by stating that “[p]lanting coconuts cannot be more important than national security.”

The latest humiliation from the SL Judge and SL Governor comes after the hyping up of the so-called ‘National Security’ argument following the Easter Sunday attacks.
