SLA intelligence ‘leaks’ stories about robberies in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 14 December 2010, 22:08 GMT]
In an attempt to pass the blame and entrap the released LTTE cadres now living in Jaffna, the Sri Lanka Army intelligence has started ‘leaking’ stories linking the former LTTE cadres with the escalating robberies in the peninsula, media sources in Jaffna said. Among the two arrested by the police related to the firing incident at Changkaanai last week, one was an LTTE cadre escaped surrender, says the SLA. But the Maanippaay police investigating the incident denied any such information. It is said that one of the arrested had a T56 rifle and was responsible for the firing. How was he able to freely move with that gun and fire a volley of shots in an area completely controlled by the SLA, is the question raised by the public. The escalating robberies mostly take place in the areas of Kaithadi, Uduppiddi, Kodikaamam, Chunnaakam and Changkaanai, where the SLA presence is heavy.

Armed robberies take place everyday in the peninsula in the night times. It is also common to see the armed robbers leisurely transporting the robbed items in vehicles.

Who is responsible for the series of robberies, ask the public simmering with anger. The SLA intelligence blames the few LTTE cadres released and now live with their families under severe constraints.

The aim of the SLA propaganda on one hand is to mask the real culprits and on the other hand to keep the former cadres under its iron fist. The ultimate aim is the subjugation of a people in the model of the colonial conquistadors, observers in Jaffna say.

In the incident at Changkaanai last week, the chief priest of a Saiva temple and his two sons were fired at and were fatally injured, when they tried to prevent a robbery in the temple.

Temples, including historical images in the sanctums, were found robbed in the High Security Zone of Valikaamam that is exclusively occupied by the Sri Lanka military.
