On Thursday, the Government Agent of Mullaiththeevu had to intervene in order to resume normalcy after urging the surveyors to return and requesting the protesters who were blocking the traffic along Paranthan Mullaiththeevu Road at Vadduvaakal.

An extraordinary Gazette notice issued by SL Minister of 銑ands and Parliamentary Reforms on August 04, 2017, only talks about 叢ublic purpose without mentioning the military purpose.

The 賎otabaya camp was initially launched as a Naval Deployment (ND) in January 2011.

Later, it was upgraded as a Commissioned Naval Base (CNB) with the title 全ri Lanka Naval Ship Gotabhaya in 2012.

Several naval detachments connected to 賎otabhaya are functioning at Chemmalai, Naayaa池u and in Chilaavaththai. These areas are subjected to demographic and structural genocide in Karai-thu'raip-pattu division.

The 全LNS Gotabaya comes under the so-called Eastern Naval Area of the SL Navy Command, which has its central command at Trincomalee.

The ENA covers the longest eastern belt of the occupied country of Eezham Tamils, and consists of 13 Commissioned Naval Bases (CNBs).

The ENA is the largest establishment within the SL Navy in the entire island.

SL President Maithiripala Sirisena, with his 善olonnaruwa Chinthana is also the minister responsible for 閃ahaweli occupation plan.

全ystem L of Mahaweli project targets the fertile areas in Mullaiththeevu while 全ystem B, the largest of the current projects under the Mahaweli scheme, aims to seize the resourceful interior lands of Batticaloa district. The deployment of Sinhala 蘇ome guards paramilitary, extremist Buddhist monks and the SL 羨rmy and Archaeology, Forest Department and Wild Life Department are all operated along the 僧aster plan of Sinhalicisation.
