SL Forest department blocks access to 300 acres of agricultural lands in Ampaa'rai

[TamilNet, Thursday, 12 April 2018, 19:03 GMT]
The SL Department of Forest Conservation has put up border stones covering 300 acres of agricultural lands belonging to Tamils uprooted from a previously militarised area across three divisions of Ampaa'arai division. The SL Forest Department has taken over the grounds immediately after the SL military relocated from the places, the people said.

Koamaari in Poththuvil division, Ma'nanthaa-peddi-aa'ru in Chamaa-thu'rai division and the borderlands of Akkaraip-pattu division were declared as forest lands by the SL Department in 2010.

The SL Forest Department is blocking the people from accessing their lands to resume agriculture despite the resettled Tamils documenting documents to prove their ownership.

The issue needs immediate attention of Tamil politicians, the residents further said.
