6 Village divisions in Mullaiththeevu district declared as HSZ

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 27 October 2010, 06:03 GMT]
Sri Lanka President’s Action Committee and Sri Lanka Ministry of Defence have declared six Village Officer divisions in Mullaiththeevu district as High Security Zone (HSZ) of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Tuesday evening, according to the officials of Mullaiththeevu Government Secretariat. The above authorities have instructed the officials not to permit resettlement of uprooted families in the areas declared as HSZ. Puthukkudiyiruppu East and West, Mallikaiththteevu, Sivanakar, Aananthapuram and Manthuvil are the village officer divisions declared as HSZ.

SLA authorities did not permit Tuesday the officials of Mullaiththeevu Government Secretariat to proceed beyond Puthukkudiyiruppu junction when they went to inspect the areas in that Assistant Government Agent division.

Meanwhile, the remnants of the buildings and properties of civilians in the areas adjoining the village divisions in Puthukkudiyiruppu declared as HSZ are being systematically razed to ground with bulldozers by SLA in the last few days, according to local sources.

Families evicted from their properties by SLA in Vallikaamam twenty years ago still languish in temporary camps without being allowed to resettle in their own places by SLA.
