Officials complain of school books replete with Spelling, Grammar, factual errors, more than 8,000 Sri Lanka Army soldiers desert their posts and Jaffna TRO contemplates filing rights case against Sri Lanka Government and security forces.

School books replete with errors

School books published by Sri Lanka Government are full of spelling, grammer and factual errors complained Mr. Ariyaratnam the Commissioner of Education of Kilinochchi district.

The books produced in accordance with the new and improved school syllabus contain distorted facts on the island's history.

He commended the effort of the Thamileelam educational organization for having produced a complementary book "Social studies and History," that presents the correct version of history, the commissioner said.

"It is important that Tamil students are aware of the true history of the history of their land and that of their ancestors," Mr.Ariyaratnam added.

SLA soldiers desert their posts

More than 8000 Sri Lanka Army(SLA) soldiers have deserted their posts after the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), according sources of the Defense Ministry of Sri Lanka.

Rights case against GoSL, Security forces

Valikamam North Rehabilitation organization is considering filing a fundamental rights case against the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) and the Security Forces, for blocking displaced residents from resettling in their own lands in Valikamam North, legal sources from Jaffna said.

The legal action points out that the former residents have been violated of their fundamental rights for the past 16 years to resettle, despite several protests and talks with the Government of Sri Lanka and the security forces.

The rights action further points out that the displaced are languishing in refugee camps from 1990 and that they have received no assistance until now.
