SL Navy ‘updates’ records of ex-LTTE members in Moothoor East

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 14 July 2020, 22:14 GMT]
The occupying SL Navy stationed in Champoor, Moothoor East of Trincomalee district, has started contacting former LTTE members in Moothoor East to “update” their details on current affiliations, Rural Development Society members in Paaddaa'li-puram said. Conducting village-by-village and door-by-door visits or phone conversations, the predominantly Sinhala SL Navy is updating the current status of every former Tamil fighters synchronising the details. The executive president and the Sinhala military of the occupying unitary state of genocidal Sri Lanka seem to be caught up in paranoia that a regrouping of Tamil armed movement was taking place, RDS representatives said.

The SL Navy is particularly interested in where the former LTTE members are employed and how they are sustaining their income. They also ask how far they travel for employment purposes and update the mobile numbers.

The consistent harassment is witnessed after five months of dormancy due to change of guard in Colombo and the COVID pandemic.

The families and employers are disturbed by the surveillance targeting their breadwinners and employees.

The village-by-village collection of data, which began early this month, has targeted Paaddaa'li-puram, Uppoo'ral, Mukaththuvaaram and parts of Pa'l'lik-kudiyiruppu so far. The people of Champoor, Cheanai-oor, Koonith-theevu and Kaddai-pa’richchaan are worried about facing inconvenient questions in the following days.

In the meantime, groups of SL Navy personnel are conducting military training inside residential areas of Ilakkanthai in Moothoor East, sources in Champoor said.
