SLFP threatens Tamils filing cases against Sinhala land grab in Ki'linochchi

[TamilNet, Sunday, 13 January 2013, 23:12 GMT]
Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa's ruling Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) men in Ki'linochchi have been threatening the Tamil land owners who have been filing cases against the Sinhalese from South who have occupied their lands. The SLFP men are behind ‘providing’ lands to the family members of the Sri Lanka Army soldiers and other Sinhalese from South. At least 15 cases are pending the Ki'linochchi courts against illegal land grab of priviate lands by the Sinhala settlers from South, legal sources in Ki'lnochchi told TamilNet.

A family of the occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldier has been illegally settled in the lands belonging to the Irrigation Department, at Karadip-poakku Junction in the suburb of Ki'linochchi town since December 2012.

While the Irrigation Department officials are struggling to get the occupying family to vacate the lands, the family has built a house and a restaurant at the occupied lands with the backing of the SLA and the SLFP.

Even the Health Department officials are unable to take any action against the occupants of the land.

In the meantime, another family from South has been settled inside a private land near Karadip-poakku junction. The land owner, a Tamil family man from Jaffna, complained with the SL Police that his land has been encroached.

However, the occupying family, backed by the SLFP gang, has filed a case claiming that the said land is their property.

In the meantime, the SLFP men in Ki'linochci are grabbing more lands of Eezham Tamils in Ki'linochchi district to settle Sinhala families from South, especially in Chivanakar, Uruththirapuram and along the spill canals of the Ira'naimadu Tank, news sources in Ki'linochchi further said.
