Colombo appropriates lands of 400 Tamil families in Vavuniyaa

[TamilNet, Thursday, 02 May 2013, 20:33 GMT]
The Colombo government has begun to appropriate 400 acres of lands belonging to Tamils in Veerapuram in Vavuniyaa Cheddiku'lam division to settle down Sinhalese, according to Vanni district Tamil National Alliance parliamentarian Sivasakthi Aanandan. In a similar move, at Nochchikku'lam GS division, private lands of Eezham Tamils have been appropriated for the purpose of 56th brigade headquarters for the occupying Sri Lanka Army, news sources in Vavuniyaa said.

Sinhala settlers now residing in Ulukku'lam village on the border of the Vavuniyaa district are to be settled down in Veerapuram, the TNA MP added.

400 Tamil families were settled down under a housing project in Veerapuram in 1995. Each family was allocated one acre.

Already, the occupying Sri Lanka Army has begun to appropriate twenty acres of private lands belonging to Tamils to construct the 56th brigade headquarters in Vavuniyaa.
