SL Navy to seize more lands in Vidaththal-theevu, Mannaar

[TamilNet, Saturday, 05 December 2015, 22:51 GMT]
Resettled Eezham Tamil coastal villagers in Vidaththal-theevu, Mannaar, urged the SL administrative authorities last week to release the seized lands that belong to 12 of 200 resettled villagers. However, the commander of the occupying SL Navy in Vidaththal-theevu, who was present at a meeting on Thursday last week, responded by declining to take the request into consideration On the contrary, the SL Navy commander said he was looking for more lands to expand the naval camp into a full-fledged cantonment, news sources in Maanthai West told TamilNet on Saturday.

The meeting was ‘facilitated’ by the Divisional Secretary of Maanthai-West between the civil society activists and the SL Navy.

The villagers were shocked to learn about the plans of permanent military occupation and that more lands are going to be appropriated by the genocidal military.

Maanthai West has witnessed mysteries killings, discovery of mass graves and large-scale land grab by the occupying SL military after the genocidal onslaught on Vanni in 2009.
