SLA destroys Liberation Tiger war heroes tombs in Uduppiddi

[TamilNet, Monday, 03 May 2010, 20:49 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Jaffna using bulldozers completely destroyed E’l’laangku’lam Liberation Tiger War Heroes’ Resting Homes in Uduppiddi in Vadmaraadchi Monday night, former Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian Sivajilingam said. He told that local residents in Uduppiddi had conveyed the information by phone.

When SLA forces first occupied Jaffna peninsula in 1996 they had fully destroyed the above Liberation Tiger War heroes’ resting home tombs.

They were, however, restored during the peace period after 2002 and War Heroes’ Day observed each year,

When clashes erupted again in 2006, SLA forces occupying Jaffna peninsula had damaged the tombs besides taking away the valuable articles and the electricity equipments therein.

Recently, Liberation Tigers’ Leader Mr. V. Pirapaharan’s residence in Vavleddiththu’rai was destroyed by SLA forces.

Similarly, Black Tiger Miller’s memorial monument in Nelliayadi too had been completely destroyed by SLA forces.
