SLA in Vanni alleged of using forced labour

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 11 May 2011, 23:24 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army in Vanni is forcing the Tamil civilians, who visit Vanni to see their kith and kin in Mullaiththeevu district from other parts of the island, to work in the SLA-run projects. Failing to do so they are warned and their relatives in Mullaiththeevu are being interrogated by the SLA intelligence unit, according to affected victims.

In the meantime, the Sri Lankan Defence Ministry imposed a rigid “pass system” to visiting foreigners.

In addition to all foreigners visiting the country of Eezham Tamils, those who are born in the districts of Jaffna, Mullaiththeevu and Ki'linochchi and are visiting from abroad, are put into special scrutiny in the issue of ‘visa' by the SL Ministry of Defence.

The visitors have to apply four days ahead to obtain such permission.
