Colombo beefs up military presence in Tamil homeland on SL ‘Independence Day’

[TamilNet, Monday, 03 February 2014, 23:48 GMT]
Anticipating black flags on the so-called Independence Day, Colombo has beefed up the presence of Sinhala soldiers and roaming patrols in the occupied country of Eelam Tamils. The occupying Sri Lankan soldiers have taken positions at public buildings for the past two days to block the people from putting up black flags and to make sure that the SL Lion flags get hoisted in the North and East.

The SL military has deployed hundreds of soldiers on the road in front of the University of Jaffna and near the hostel area.

Many of the students from external districts have moved out from the hostel due to the military presence, news sources in Jaffna said.

Colombo government has also issued circulars to schools and to the public sector offices in the North and East to mark the day by hoisting the ‘Sri Lankan’ lion flag on Tuesday.

Eelam Tamils in the homeland as well as in the diaspora mark February 04 as a Black Day.
