SLA denies permission to reopen Central College in Palaali HSZ

[TamilNet, Friday, 01 October 2010, 05:51 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) officials in Palaali High Security Zone did not permit the school administrators to reopen Vassavi’laan Maththiya Makaa Viththiyaalayam located in Palaali HSZ which was officially handed over Tuesday in a event held in the school in the presence of Northern Province Governor Major Gen. G. A. Chandrasiri, SLA Jaffna Commander Major Gen. Mahinda Kathurusinghe, Sri Lanka Minister Douglas Devandanda and Education Department officers. The school administrators who took the furniture and other necessary things from the temporary location of the school Thursday were sent back and directed to take all the things brought out of the HSZ. The SLA officials told them that the school could only be reopened in 2011, Jaffna Education Department sources said.

The school administration had even informed the 1200 students that they can attend Vasaavi’laan Maththiya Makaa Viththiyaalayam.

The official handing over of the school with much publicity and propaganda by Sri Lanka government is just another of its duplicity stunt in showing the world that people uprooted from their places twenty years ago from Valikaamam North by occupying SLA are allowed to resettle in their own places, Welfare Association for the Uprooted sources said.

The school caught in Palaali High Security Zone (HSZ) of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) for the last twenty years now functions in a private property in Urumpiraay area since it was forced to displace in 1990 due to SLA offensives. The roof and the furniture of the school had been plundered during SLA occupation.
