SL military launches ATMs, postal office in occupied Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 09 October 2018, 16:01 GMT]
The occupying military of genocidal Sri Lanka wants to control the civil administration and all aspects of the civilian life in the former ‘High-Security Zone’ in Valikaamam North, Jaffna. The commander of the occupying Sinhala forces in the peninsula has instructed the military to install ATMs and to operate postal offices in Palaali. The SL military, which is running the ATM stations has also started to run a post office in Palaali. The latest move comes amidst increased criticism of SL military intervening in the civil affairs.

In the meantime, the Colombo government has been systematically ignoring the requests to reconstruct the necessary infrastructure such as restoring access roads, schools, potable water and toilet facilities in the lands that have been released so far, says Thellippazhai Divisional Councillor Shageevan Shanmugalingam.

The people resettled in interior pockets of villages have to either travel to KKS or Thellip-pazhai to almost everything, he said.

The resettled Eezham Tamils in Valikaamam North blamed it as open discrimination. When it comes to settling Sinhala colonists in the North all necessary infrastructure support is provided to encourage Sinhalicisation of Tamils land, they said.

In parallel to the operation of civil services, the SL Army was also celebrating 69th anniversary claiming itself as ‘Defenders of the Nation’. The flags of the occupying military were forcefully hoisted at the temples of Eezham Tamils in Jaffna.

Sinhala Army soldiers numbering around 35,000 are stationed in the peninsula.
